Harley’s Harlequinn Is Ready To Rumble

Peter Taylor Lego Harley's Harlequinn

It is Harley Quinn’s turn to have some fun. Harley’s Harlequinn is a Lego Mech created by Peter Taylor for the Mech Madness 2012 contest. This mech stands up without supports, but a base was specially designed to help it stand in more dynamic poses. Check out all the features. The main weapon is a massive hammer. And, when that doesn’t work Harley can always use her giant pistol. It is made out out of various wheel parts, and even the Lego barrel (which is usually found in the Pirates theme). The Harlequinn features a four finger hand with knuckles, perfect for picking up Batman. If she is ever in trouble a few hidden cannons can help out. Harley Quinn herself pilots this monstrosity from inside the head, with duel joysticks.

Lego Batman vs Joker At The Art Deco Gotham Theater

Paul Hetherington Lego Batman Gotham vs Joker, Gotham Theater Showdown

There are a whole bunch of Lego Batman MOCs out there (click here). And for some reason people put a whole lot of time creating some of the most massive Lego scenes out there (see this one, and this one). The great thing is that there is always room for more. Check out this beautiful Lego MOC, titled “Lego Batman vs Joker Gotham Theater Showdown” built by Paul Hetherington. The scene depicts an epic fight between Batman, Robin, and Joker in the streets of Gotham. This MOC is essentially three smaller builds in one. The center piece is the Art Deco styled Gotham Theater, there is the street and trolly outside, and there is a huge brick built background. There is even a detailed story:

“Once again that Mad Harlequin of Hate, The Joker, brings menace to the citizens of Gotham. Beware as the Streetcar named Destruction advances into Gotham, and the Joker’s henchmen unleash horrible Joker Gas! Listen to the eerie dreadful laughing — has the Joker taken control of everyone?!? Wait — look above – that symbol of justice descending from the sky — The Batcopter! Piloted by the plucky Robin, The Boy Wonder and the courageous Batman! Are the tornado team of crime crushers in time to oppose the Grim Jester in the gripping tale of — Gotham Theater Showdown!”

Paul Hetherington has created one of the most beautiful Lego Art Deco style buildings. The Gotham Theater was originally inspired by Marbro Theater of Chicago (sadly torn down in 1964). This build features a limited palette of beige, brown, black, and gold detailing. Check out all of the unique patterns and textures on the facade.

Gotham Theater Power Functions Video

The Lego Batman vs Joker Gotham Theater Showdown has a secret. Power functions have been built into the scene and carefully hidden. The street car moves back and forth. The Joker is moving/aiming the balloon cannon up and down. The cops are all laughing out of control, spinning and falling down. And the Batcopter is hovering/twirling in place amid all this chaos.

I Am The Night! I Am Batman!

nobu_tary Batman Lego Figure, I Am Batman!
This Lego Batman figure is the creation of nobu_tary. They capture one of the most definitive styles of the Batsuit. The only thing missing is the iconic chest logo. The cape even drapes over the shoulders, which is a detail you don’t see often in Batman MOCs. Also check out those 6 stud abs, and massive pecs. This Batman spends a lot of time in the gym. You can just imagine this guy standing on top of a skyscraper saying: “I Am Batman!”

The Lego Batman Movie Minifigure Displays

Sebastian Bachorzewski Lego Batman Movie Minifigure Displays Grodon

Check out these great Minifigures Displays for the Lego Batman Movie Collectible Minifigures. All of these are the work of Sebastian Bachórzewski, who has done a whole series for these Minifigs. Because of their small part count these types of displays, or vignettes, are easy to build. As long as you have the design, and inspiration needed to pull them off well. Here we have Commissioner Gordon, Glam Metal Batman, Harley Quinn, Leisure Batman, and the Joker. All of these little displays are great at complimenting each Minifigure. Helping to create a story for your shelves. Gordon looks like he is on the hunt for the Joker, which should be easy as he is already in jail.  Glam Metal Batman shows off a (complete?) collection of printed guitars, which are hard to find. And, Harley is getting ready to do some doctor stuff.

Batman’s New Transformable BatCamper Version 2.0

Hoyin Lau Lego Batman Batcamper

Batman seems to have a tool for any situation. A few of the vehicles he owns include the Batmobile, the Batplane, the Batcopter, the Batpod, the Batskiboat, and the Batmissile. There is clearly a pattern. It is then easy to imagine that when Batman goes to Yosemite or Yellowstone he would bring along a Batcamper. This Lego MOC is the creation of Hoyin Lau. It is clearly based on the famous Volkswagen Camper Van. Not only is the camper black and yellow but it also features multiple bat detailing.

Just like the Batmobile in the Tim Burton films, this Batcamper can transform into something else. In this case a bulky mech style robot. With the new arms and legs this is truly an off-road vehicle.

Build Your Own Lego NES Pi Case

WayGroovy Lego NES Pi

The Nintendo NES Classic has proven to be more popular then anyone planned. Months after the release the NES Classic is still extremely rare. The other down side is that it only 30 games. You can wait around to buy one of these, or you can build your own (which some people might consider better). You just need a Raspberry Pi B+ and some technical knowledge. Best of all you can even build your own NES case out of Lego. WayGroovy has done just that. This MOC is based on the work by Chris McVeigh. With a few modifications WayGroovy was able to fit the whole thing in an amazingly small package.

The best part is that they documented the process, so you can build one yourself. Check out the Lego NES Pi Case here: http://imgur.com/a/8EeyD

Minifigures Need To Eat Too, Part 2 – Lego Taco Bell And KFC!

Eric Badis Lego Taco Bell

Lego Minifigures are lining up to eat a Cool Ranch® Doritos® Locos Tacos or a KFC Famous Bowl®. They can even wash it down with an ice cold Pepsi, Yum (Brands)! These two Lego MOC fast food buildings are the creation of Eric Badis, who is putting together a nice collection of Lego fast food joints. The Lego Taco Bell features the standard beige and purple design you will find in almost any city. The sign/logo and the wallpaper pattern are all custom printouts applied to the Lego building. The end result is amazingly lifelike. Then their is the Lego KFC, which features a more exaggerated design. It is based on the red and white stripe motif that you find on their buckets. This tall two story building will fit in with the official modular buildings.

These two buildings are part of a greater collection and the Dunkin Donuts / Texas Road House have been feature before: http://legogenre.com/minifigures-need-eat-lego-dunkin-donuts-texas-road-house/

A Lego French Classical Stage Featuring The Molière Comedies

Campistron1984 Lego French Classical Stage 01

“This project make possible to represent at least six of Molière’s most famous comedy : Dom Juan, Tartuffe, The Misanthrope, The Imaginary Invalid (Le Malade imaginaire), The Learned Ladies (Les Femmes savantes) and The Affected Young Ladies (Les Précieuses ridicules). But, of course, minifigures and pieces can be used to build anything you want !”

Campistron1984 Lego French Classical Stage Detail

The Lego French Classical Stage is a Lego Ideas project created by Campistron1984. The stage is based on the Théâtre du Palais-Royal, a French theatre in the seventeenth century. This one has been set up to feature the Molière Comedies, and if you want you can build and create new backdrops to host any number of shows. The back of the theatre can easily be switched out. This Lego MOC comes equipped with a salon set, a dinning room, and a bedroom set. Also feature are a couple of trap doors, so you can fool even the most skeptical Minifigure. On the Lego Ideas page you can also view a set based on Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, to get an idea of how this thing works.
