A She-Hulk and Iron Man Team Up

Ben Cossy Lego She-Hulk Iron Man Team

She-Hulk and Iron Man have teamed up to take down the famous Magneto. Amazingly the X-Men are no where to be found. The “She-Hulk and Iron Man Team Up” is an MOC created by Ben Cossy. The fight takes place in a downtown looking area. It looks to be about the same scale as the Lego Modular buildings. Then there is the road, which might have more pieces then the rest of the scene. The overall concept of this Marvel themed build is based on Superior Iron Man #1. In that comic they are fighting against the Teen Abomination. Here, they swapped in Magneto since an Abomination Minifigure was unavailable. A great decision, as it allows the addition of cars into the fight. Also if you look very carefully you might notice that the She-Hulk and Iron Man are unofficial Minifigures.

Peter Parker’s Apartment – A Spider-Man Lego MOC

Ben Cossy Lego Spider-Man Peter Parker's Apartment Detail

Peter Parker is just your average teenage Minifigure. Based on his apartment you would never guess his secret. That he is Spider-Man. Ben Cossy has created Peter Parker’s Apartment in Lego. A place for his Spider-Man and Mary Jane Minifigures to hang out. This Lego Studio-Apartment is fully furnished. In the main room you will find a double bed, old tube-style TV, computer, mini-kitchen, and a sofa. Among all the little details you might spot a NES, or Iron Man’s Helmet. All of the little custom stickers up on the walls look great. Off to the side is Peter Parker’s Bathroom. A standard small bathroom, with tub, toliet, and sink. Too bad there isn’t enough room for a shower. Spider-Man must stink after a night out.

Captain America Made Out Of Lego

This Captain America brick built Lego figure is ready to bring justice to the world. The design is going for an older comic book style as opposed to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The wings on the cap are perfect. Captain America is fully posable (like those new Star Wars figures). Even the eyebrows can be adjusted.

The Uncanny Lego X-Men (v2) Minifigures

agoodfella minifigs' Lego X-Men

With the recent releases in the Lego Marvel Superheroes theme, the official Lego X-Men Minifigures are slowly expanding. It seems to be an incredibly slow rate. The only reason we got the Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver is because of their appearance in the Avengers. There are so many iconic mutants in the Marvel Universe that most of them will probably never see an official figure. That leaves a great opportunity for custom Minifigs to fill in the roster.

Check out these Uncanny X-Men Minifigures created by agoodfella minifigs. This is the 2nd version of this collection, with new characters, updated appearances, and custom creations adding to the lineup. These feature custom paint, chrome, and even unofficial Minifigs. It all combines to create a roster of X-Men that look amazing.

The World’s Greatest Minifigures. The Lego Fantastic Four!

Misha Mishin's Lego Fantastic Four

Lego may never get around to releasing Fantastic Four based Minifigures, but that doesn’t stop people from obtaining their own. With a recent appearance in the Lego Marvel Super Heroes video game there is some hope that these may one day be official. These four Minifigs are actually extremely well done “knock offs” by Sheng Yuan, and are sold individually. These Minifigures are a part of a greater Fantastic Four themed release, featuring Mr. Fantastic, Human Torch, Invisible Woman, The Thing, Flaming Human Torch, Pyro, Silver Surfer, and the great Dr. Doom. These are surprisingly detailed, with the Thing being the break out star of the bunch.

Lego Minions! Minions! Minions!

Yatkuu's Lego Minions! Party

Feeling like the wait is way too long for another Despicable Me? Thats okay, because the Lego community has been creating a whole lot of Lego Minions. There are Minions Parties, Mini Minions, Minion Maids, Batman Minions, and many many more. LegoGenre even has a whole section of these creations. The newest entry into the series is this collection of Minions! created by Yatkuu. My favorite of the bunch are the SuperHero themed Minions. Captain America and Batman Minion are instantly recognizable and hilarious. These little dudes have an interesting story:

“This series of Minions was inspired by my Nerdly-Minion and started as a project for the LEGO Store community window in Raleigh, NC. I meant to put these up on display for the release of the movie “Minions” due in July 15. I think the kids would have liked it. 

Unfortunately, for reasons that I can’t really comprehend TLG decided to revisit the rules of the community windows and as a result these little guys will probably never see a LEGO store from up-close. Too bad.”

Yatkuu has been kind enough to post instructions for these guys, which you can find over on BrickFanatics: http://brickfanatics.co.uk/do-you-wanna-build-a-minion/

The Chicken Buster, A Hulkbuster Parody

Peter C's Lego Chicken Buster

“Did you know there is also a Thor buster, Magneto buster, even Galactus buster? Why not a Chicken buster?” — Peter C.

There have been a lot of Lego Hulkbusters over the past few years, most of them great. It is about time we get the other Busters. First up a Chickenbuster. It looks like Tony Stark woke up late, and grabbed the wrong helmet. He is ready to turn some villains into omelets. Look out. The Chicken Buster is the creation of Peter C, who is having a good time creating new ways to mock the Hulk.
