It has finally happened, the new Lego Ideas #010 set The Big Bang Theory (21302) has been released. If you made it to San Diego Comic Con (SDCC) this year, you were able to get your hands on the new set a few weeks early. As for the rest of the world, we will need to wait until August 1st. The whole thing is made up of 479 pieces and will be priced at $€59.99. This is not a cheap set, and the price per piece is high.
Brickset has posted one of the first reviews of this set (here). The review is full of high resolution photos, and walks you through the basic build process. It is also sprinkled with comments from Alice, who just happens to be a fan of The Big Bang Theory. Make sure to read the whole review!
“I think it’s a great set for TBBT fans that are not already LEGO fans because even I, who hasn’t played with LEGO for 10 years, wanted to build it just so I could recreate the set.…”

The Justice League of America (JLA) is the ultimate superhero team. DC Comics first put the Justice League together in 1960. Originally featuring Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Green Lantern, Aquaman, and the Martian Manhunter. Since then the superhero team has had a sort of revolving door for membership. Here, Flickr user Bryant, has imagined a Lego version of the team featuring the core members, plus Hawkman, Green Arrow, the Atom, and the Black Canary. Someday Lego may get around to creating official Lego minifigures for all the major DC Comics superheroes, until that time custom minifigs will have to fill in the missing heroes.
Here are two of the custom Justice League Lego minifigures. Hawkman is a combination of decals and painting, while the Atom is a custom painted Lego trophy. That little Lego trophy makes a perfect Lego Atom.
Here is the custom Lego Martian Manhunter and the Green Lantern. Decals were used again to achieve the torso prints.
The final two custom JLA members are Aquaman and the Flash. Once again showing off custom decals for the torsos. The old style Lego space helmet works great here too.
Lego Legion of Doom
But, we cannot forget the supervillains, even super friends have super enemies. Bryant has created a super lineup (based on Justice League Doom, Legion of Doom, and Super Friends) featuring Amazo, Captain Cold, Darkseid, Lex Luthor, Joker, Bizarro, Solomun Grundy and Black Adam. The big stand outs here are Darkseid, and Solomun Grundy. Adding a plate between the legs and torso works well but leaves me wondering how it was accomplished.
