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.

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!”

Helen Sham of Small Bricks Big World – 小積木 大世界 – has been building all sorts of Lego figures. Recently she has been building Batmans. Lots and lots of Batmans. There are at least eight of them, including normal Batman, Rainbow Batman, the Lego Movie Batman, and Fairy Batman. These figures are big, and seem to have a decent amount of motion. Helen has also offered them up for sale, which you can contact her for more details (here).
The best thing is that there are other big Lego figures. Including Robin and the Joker!
These Batman themed brickbuilt figures are all part of a greater series. Which includes Superman, Wonder Woman, Wolverine, Darth Vader, and the Beatles. You can find out a whole lot more information at Helen Sham’s Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/smallbricksbigworld/
Experiment 626, more commonly known as Stitch has been let loose. By far one of the cutest laboratory experiments, even though he was designed to destroy populated areas. Stitch has been officially classified extremely dangerous. The good news is that he met Lilo in Hawaii, where a series of adventures taught him to ignore all his programming. Resulting in Stitch becoming one of the most enduring characters. This Lego Stitch MOC is created by Legohaulic. Who has spent months carefully refining this design. The figure is just about 7 inches tall, and has 13 points of articulation. Meaning that Stitch can be posed doing almost anything you can image. He also has a collection of costumes, from Halloween to Experiment 626 (where he grows 2 more arms, and antennae).
Lego Stitch is up on Lego Ideas, so make sure to vote for it if you want Lego to make this into an official set.

Here is a Lego Star Wars collection of brick built figures based on Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. There is Princess Leia (the only human), R5-D4, R2-D2, and C-3PO. They are built mostly in scale with each other. R2-D2 and R5-D4 are great little builds with a lot of character. In fact the R2-D2 reminds me of the new and rare R2-D2 polybag (30611) from Lego. C-3PO is a great build, and a lot of time went into making sure he was perfect. The key was finding all the correct gold pieces. The Lego vent pieces as the torso wiring is a great solution. Last but not least is Princess Leia. Her brick built figure has the famous hair buns, and is much more posable then she looks. Check out the photos below to see what she can do. A rather large set was also built of the space ship Tantive IV. Allowing a recreation of one of the most famous scenes in the series.
The Princess Leia and R2-D2 were built as a tribute for Carrie Fisher and Kenny Baker. Below, you can really see how well these Lego figures work together. The title of this photo is “”Did you miss me?”
This Lego Star Wars collection of figures is the creation of Miro Dudas. Who will be at the upcoming Bricks LA if you want to find out more. See here for details: https://www.flickr.com/photos/miro78/32420079581/

I’ll Be There For You. The Captain Said I Had To.
Fire Emblem is the perfect game to get lost in. You can find yourself spending hundreds of hours battling, and developing your characters. Each video game has a huge cast, which can make it hard to stand out in the series. Robin is one of the more recognizable characters from Fire Emblem Awakening. Probably because the character represents the player avatar. Most people renamed Robin, which is the default name in English (Reflet, ルフレ in Japanese). The default name became famous when the character debuted in Super Smash Bros. The character is a Tactician which allows them to use swords and tomes (magic) in battle. But, weak to amnesia.
This Robin MOC, created by Eero Okkonen, depicts the female choice for the character. One great detail is that the hands hold weapons, and can also swap them in and out depending on the pose. Robin comes equipped with a Levin sword, Archfire Tome, and Thunder Tome. Another stand out feature here is the jacket. The buttons and hem have been carefully put together.

Tracer is easily the most recognizable character from the video game Overwatch. Nick Brick created a brick-built Lego figure of Tracer. I have a feeling she is not as fast as her digital version. There are some great details hidden in this “simple” looking MOC. Check out the tan Lego legs being used for shoulders, or the ice skate blades doubling as a jacket lapel. Other stuff stands out too, such as the various joints, the hair, and glasses.

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.
Kale Frost created this Captain America, and more info can be found here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/frostbricks/31046599225
The first image from the upcoming Lego Angry Birds theme has been revealed. Although not a photograph of an upcoming release, it still give a very clear impression on the direction that this theme is going. It looks like we can look forward to a whole bunch of new molds and pieces. And, it is good to see Lego not cram the Angry Birds into their Minifigure design. Then if you look at the whole wallpaper image, you can see silhouette of the Pigs. Believe it or not this red bird is named Red, and he looks like his wings can hold standard Lego accessories and also move up and down. This theme is still over 6 months away, so keep on the look out for more early reveals.
