The Playstation 4 Spider-Man video game is one of the best open world video games. The game chose to feature a Spider-Man that is unique to it, by mixing a bunch of previous versions into theirs. As he swings around Manhattan, Peter Parker eventually creates a new Advanced Suit. Which is the version that Ethen T used for his giant Lego mosaic. The whole build is 128×192 studs, which is a lot of space to work with. In another dimension, it is over 5 feet tall. This mosaic uses a few techniques besides the normal mosaic style, the blue and black areas are multi-level greebled patterns. The white logo is made out a bunch of 1×2 grate pieces. Altogether over 17,000 pieces (which is like 6 1/2 modular buildings worth of Lego). Because of the variety of pieces and techniques, this mosaic look different in various lighting situations. Check out a more more dynamic low light version below. Peter Parker would certainly be impressed with this Lego portrait.
I Saw Spider-Man Today, is a Lego MOC by Barthezz Brick. The scene features three huge buildings, a few streets, and a whole lot of details. Everything looks weathered, accomplished by using various misaligned and ill-fitting Lego bricks. Giving the whole setting a very New York feel. Especially the more gritty version from some of the comics. There is a lot going on in this build. If you look carefully you can spot Spider-Man, a Sushi stand, Motorcycle, newsstand, and even a saxophone player. Everything has been brought together by the excellent use of custom decals and stickers. Especially the Coca-Cola sign.
Barthezz Brick has even provided a short story, setting the scene:
“The scultz gang robbed their third bank this week. I chased one of the robbers for three blocks when he tore his money bag on W 37th street. He lost more than half of his loot. I doubted, should i secure the money or should i keep chasing the bloke?
I decided to keep track on the scultz gang member, but then all of a sudden i saw spider-man. He came out of nowhere and webbed the guy in the middle of a busy crossroad. It was amazing!! Finally when the police arrived they arrested that son of a b*tch and took him to the nearest police station.
It was amazing to see my childhood dreams came true. Spider-Man you’re my Hero!”
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.
Lego Marvel Super Heroes is out now. It looks like this one is another great game from TTGames. Featuring well over 100 different Marvel characters. Such as Iron Man, Spider-Man, Thor, the Hulk, Wolverine, Deadpool, Captain America, the Fantastic Four, the X-Men, Howard the Duck, and even Stan Lee. Keeping with the recent trend, the whole game features great voice work. Lego Marvel Super Heroes is available now for almost every videogame system: PS3, XBox 360, Wii U, Nintendo DS, Nintendo 3DS, Playstation Vita, and the PC. With future releases planned for the XBox One, and Playstation 4. Available through Amazon now.
All the early reviews have been overwhelmingly positive. Such as this Lego Marvel Super Heroes review from GameTrailers:
At first glance the Friendsington Castle looks like a normal friendly Lego Friends castle. But, then you notice some of the details such as the Orcs and Troll, or the redecorated Batcave, or even Jack Sparrow. Friendsington Castle is a weird blend of Lego Friends, Superheroes and other Lego themes. There is a certain charm to the madness. Created by fujiia in collaboration with Kloou for the Fana’Briques 2013 expo.
“An ordinary day at Friendsington Castle. Despite the naughty Orcs’ constant attacks, our Friends prefer to develop their artistic senses with little regard for those poor Superheroes.”
One of the most surprising details is under the castle. It looks like the Lego Friends have spent a lot of time redecorating the Batcave. Turning it from a dark and gloomy cave into a bright and clean place for cats. Even Batman’s Tumbler has been completely repainted. Now featuring a green and yellow scheme. Batman is probably less than enthusiastic about these changes, but may be even more upset that Wolverine seems to have found his way into the cave. Superman seems to be without pants, and Spiderman has just gotten a wild hairdo. This is just a sample of the crazy going on here.
San Diego Comic-Con is the ultimate comic book convention. This year it will be held from the 18th of July through the 21st. USA Today revealed these exclusive Lego minifigures just a few days ago. These four exclusive minifigs will be available only to Comic-Con attendees. This year Spider-Man and Spider-Woman from Marvel Comics will be available. While from DC Comics, Superman and Green Arrow will also have exclusives. These four figures will fit in perfectly with the Lego Super Heroes line.
If you can attend, make sure to pick these up. These usually run out pretty quickly. In previous years, the exclusive Lego minifigures have always become high priced collectors items.
