The 80s and 90s Batman movies are pure entertainment. The Tim Burton films are wonderfully weird and dark, and the later two film perfected the big budget summer movie formula. Alex TheLegoFan has created a whole set of Batman villains as Lego Minifigures. Each film is separated into groups by their base. The Joker from Batman features the slicked back green hair, and purple suit. You can even find some goo from Axis Chemicals on the base. Batman Returns features Catwoman, Max Shriek, The Penguin all hanging out on an ice burg (accompanied by a few penguins from the old zoo).
Next up from Batman Forever, you can find The Riddler, Two-Face hanging out on a grey/white base. I wonder if they flipped a coin on who would stand where?
The last film, Batman and Robin features Minifigures for Mr Freeze, Poison Ivy, and Bane all wrapped up in vines.
Every film version of Batman’s greatest enemy, the Joker, has been memorable. But none are as memorable as Heath Ledger’s Joker from The Dark Knight film. With smeared on lipstick, uneven white makeup, and oily green hair. This Lego MOC tries to recreate that look. “Why So Serious?” is a Lego bust of the Joker created by timofey_tkachev. This build uses a lot of olive green Lego leaves to recreate the hair, and it works well. A few dark green leaves help to give the hair texture and definition. The smile is built out of a variety of Lego horns, and a red crowbar, it is a fine detail that gives the model personality. The purple suit is recreated just enough to give an impression of more, while still putting focus on the face. A SNOT style Joker playing card is also included.
This Lego Joker model has a full set of instructions available. The finished bust uses 1,093 pieces, and takes 413 pages to build. The playing card is a separate build, that also has a set of instructions. With 102 pieces and 23 pages. Check below for more information.
There are so many official Lego Minifigures out there. Thousands and thousands of unique designs. Many of the Minifigs are worth a lot of money, but a few of them stand out. Over at Mental Floss they have compiled a short list of some of the most rare and exclusive Minifigures. Most of them are promotions chase figures associated with certain events. If you happen to have a Red Sox Fan, Cloud City Boba Fett, New York I Love Yoda, International Space Station Alien, or other rare Lego Minifigures, you may have something worth over 500 dollars!
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!”
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.
