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.

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.

The Lego Arkham Asylum MOC – Expanded For New Inmates

durazno_33 Lego Batman Arkham Asylum MOC 01

Lego Batman has a new movie coming out and that means that all of Gotham City is getting ready for new adventures. Here is an expanded Arkham Asylum based on the official Lego set; Arkham Asylum Breakout (10937). Created by durazno_33 in celebration of The Lego Batman Movie. This MOC will be added to a larger display in Feburary; a part of a project by the AFOL club, Cactus Brick. The whole build is based on the modular style. Each piece of the building can be removed easily, which makes it perfect for transport. The Asylum sits on six total base plates. Which is much larger then the Breakout set. Speaking of breaking out, it looks like Poison Ivy and Mr. Freeze are in the middle of an escape. But, Batman and Robin will shut that down. All of which might just be a distraction from the real break out. Joker and Harley Quinn.

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.

The New Lego Batmobile Is Built By Chevy?

Lego Batman Batmobile Chevy

In one of the weirder marketing moments of this new year, it has been revealed that the new Lego Batmobile is “built by Chevy.” There is even an official website. It looks like Lego Batman paid $48,000,000 for  his new wheels. It has 120,000 lbs. max towing capacity, 20,000 horsepower, and comes equipped with 4G-LTE connectivity. Also listed as features are flame rocket boosters, fully-articulated wheels, and a standard 60.2L V100 engine. The Batmobile can operate in three modes. Race Mode, Monster Truck Mode, and Parallel Park Mode. The only downside… it seats 2 Minifigures.

Lego Batmobile Chevy Web

“Every angle, sharp as a tack. Every element, handcrafted for hot pursuit. When dreaming up the LEGO® Batmobile, designers drew inspiration from a combination of classic renditions and other-worldly shapes. The result? An enemy-evading machine that will draw stares and fend off foes in equal measure.”
