One of the best comic book characters from the 80’s and 90’s is Tank Girl. She is famous for all of her adventures across a post-apocolypitic Australia. Not only does she have a tank, but a mutant kangaroo boyfriend, a collection of talking stuffed animals, and a core group of weird friends. This Lego Tank Girl is the newest custom Minifigure from Minifigs.me. She even comes with her own comic. If you want to learn more about Tank Girl the Humble Comics Bundle is featuring a collection of Tank Girl comics, check it out.

Some of the most impressive Arcade Machines in the 1980s and 1990s were from Sega. They were the masters of the oversized deluxe cabinets. SpacySmoke has recreated some of the iconic cabinets in their Lego Sega Classic Arcade Machines series. These are built in scale for Minifigures. They would fit right in with the Lego Dimensions Midway Retro Gamer. A whole Lego arcade could be put built, where your Minifigs can spend Saturday nights.
There are four Sega Arcade machines. They are all based on the deluxe versions. One awesome detail is that these Lego MOCs replicate the movements of the real life cabinets. Out Run (one of the most famous racing games) features a Lego model that moves left and right. Just like the real game. Space Harrier (a weird shooter game) can move up, down, left, right and tilt. Thunder Blade (a helicopter game) can rotate. While Hang-On (a motorcycle game) tilts left and right.

It does not matter if it is in Lego or in the real world, the blue screen of death is terrifying. Anyone who used a Windows computer in the 90s knows this all too well. This little creation is the work of LegoJalex. The Minifigure scale computer is perfect, and best of all pretty simple to build. It is easy to overlook the computer chair, but it too is great. Now if only the guy can get everything restarted, he can continue closing Real Player download windows.

Ice Planet is one of the odd 1990’s space themes. It first showed up in 1993, and its cool blue and orange color palette was a huge change when compared to the previous space theme, Space Police II. Commander Cold and his research team had to withstand the hostile planet of Krysto. Equipped with trans-orange chainsaws, the most bad ass weapon Lego has ever molded, the team set out to science.
Even though Ice Planet only lasted one year it managed to make a huge impression on many people. Mr–Jack recently created this amazing painting, inspired by this cool Lego theme. The giant research vehicle in the background is impressive.

Spawn is one of the most recognizable super heroes out there. Certainly one of the most famous from the 1990’s. This Lego version of Spawn is uncanny, and keeps the spirit of the original Todd McFarlane design intact. Al Simmons has never looked better. The red cape is the star (as it is in the comic) and the top portion looks great. It would be neat to see Lego start to introduce two piece capes like this. I wonder what a Malebolgia, Angela, the Violator, Sam, or Twitch would look like Lego-ized.
