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.

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!

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!”

She-Hulk and Iron Man have teamed up to take down the famous Magneto. Amazingly the X-Men are no where to be found. The “She-Hulk and Iron Man Team Up” is an MOC created by Ben Cossy. The fight takes place in a downtown looking area. It looks to be about the same scale as the Lego Modular buildings. Then there is the road, which might have more pieces then the rest of the scene. The overall concept of this Marvel themed build is based on Superior Iron Man #1. In that comic they are fighting against the Teen Abomination. Here, they swapped in Magneto since an Abomination Minifigure was unavailable. A great decision, as it allows the addition of cars into the fight. Also if you look very carefully you might notice that the She-Hulk and Iron Man are unofficial Minifigures.

The next big comic book movie is out now. This one seems to be very decisive. But, one thing is for sure. Suicide Squad has a very dedicated fan base, creating lots of amazing things in support for the film. MGF Customs has finished creating a whole line of custom Lego Suicide Squad Minifigures. There is Col. Rick Flag, Katana, Captain Boomerang, Joker, Harley Quinn, Deadshot, El Diablo, and Killer Croc. These are some of the most details customs, especially the scales on Killer Croc and all the tattoos on Joker/Harley.
These custom Minifigs have a great showcase available to watch. Over 20 minutes of video covering the designs and all the details for each character.

Lego Batman enjoys a good Saturday morning mowing the grass with his Bat MOWbile. Afterwards, he enjoys cruising down the highway to the local hardware store to pick up some weed killer. For his Poison Ivy problem.
This is a super simple Lego MOC that ended up being awesome. Check out the blade guard area. The Lego Bat MOWbile is the creation of lego_panda, and you can find more about it here: https://www.reddit.com/r/lego/comments/3cnu3r/bat_mowbile/
Lego is once again offering a whole lot of exclusives at this years San Diego Comic Con (SDCC). There are at least 6 exclusives this time around. Last year you needed to stand in super long lines in order to purchase these, and most people who waited found out they were sold out. This year they are trying something a little bit different. Lego has set up a drawing/raffle system that winners will get to make their purchase at their leisure. Hopefully this system is an improvement. As usual, these are exclusive Lego sets so they will not be sold anywhere else. These have already started popping up on eBay at extremely high prices (here).
This year there will 3 sets, 2 minifigures, and 1 Bionicle exclusive. The 3 sets include DC Comics Super Heroes Action Comics #1 Superman, Marvel Super Heroes Throne of Ultron, and Lego Star Wars Dagobah Mini-build.
There are also 2 exclusive Minifigures this year. A Marvel Super Heroes All New Captain America (Sam Wilson), and DC Comics Super Heroes Arsenal.
Finally, there will be a transparent green Bionicle Mask exclusive too.

With the recent releases in the Lego Marvel Superheroes theme, the official Lego X-Men Minifigures are slowly expanding. It seems to be an incredibly slow rate. The only reason we got the Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver is because of their appearance in the Avengers. There are so many iconic mutants in the Marvel Universe that most of them will probably never see an official figure. That leaves a great opportunity for custom Minifigs to fill in the roster.
Check out these Uncanny X-Men Minifigures created by agoodfella minifigs. This is the 2nd version of this collection, with new characters, updated appearances, and custom creations adding to the lineup. These feature custom paint, chrome, and even unofficial Minifigs. It all combines to create a roster of X-Men that look amazing.
There are a lot of mutants here. See if you can find Psylocke, Phoenix, Angel, Dark Phoenix, Sunspot, Warpath, Cable, Havok, Sabretooth, Archangel, Gambit, Bishop, X-23, White Queen, Magneto, Juggernaut, Deadpool, Iceman, Beast, Nightcrawler, Jean Grey, Wolverine, Colossus, Shadowcat, Rogue, Mystique, Cyclops, Professor X, and Storm.

Lego may never get around to releasing Fantastic Four based Minifigures, but that doesn’t stop people from obtaining their own. With a recent appearance in the Lego Marvel Super Heroes video game there is some hope that these may one day be official. These four Minifigs are actually extremely well done “knock offs” by Sheng Yuan, and are sold individually. These Minifigures are a part of a greater Fantastic Four themed release, featuring Mr. Fantastic, Human Torch, Invisible Woman, The Thing, Flaming Human Torch, Pyro, Silver Surfer, and the great Dr. Doom. These are surprisingly detailed, with the Thing being the break out star of the bunch.
