Slaughter is the best medicine. A perfect pun seen on the semi truck that Joker has stolen from Hyams Amusement Parks. This “The Dark Knight Joker Truck” is the creation of The Eleventh Bricks. The build has a huge custom sticker on the trailer for Hyams. Huge stickers are not always popular but in this case everything is accurate to the film, and the branding fits in perfectly with this Lego MOC. The semi truck has some nice features too. The off center license plate, and the side mirrors are well built. The sunlight screen/bug protector is another great detail that looks great in Lego. The truck has been built to scale to fit in with the recent Lego Speed Champions theme. Which means that two Minifigs can fit in the cab, side by side. Joker will flip out when he sees Lego MOC.
Just in time for the season premiere of Game of Thrones, Guy Himber, has created King Joffrey, Long May He Reign. This television shows most infamous villain is looking appropriately evil. Some of these Lego pieces have been put to novel use. Check out the Minifigure arms, used for fingers. And, it even looks like the One Ring is adorning the top of the crown. Even in Lego you still want to slap Joffrey across his smug face.
Flickr user, -derjoe- has been creating these hilarious Lego Star Wars figures for some time. The proportions and basic geometry work surprisingly well. The “Bounty Hunters ‘Executor Meeting’ ” is a great recreation of that famous scene from The Empire Strikes Back. These guys are built in a “Klotzkopf-Style” which roughly means “Block Head” in english. These have recently appeared in a book titled “Build Your Own Galaxy: The Big Unofficial Builder’s Book”
“Look Sir, Droids!” features one of the most famous scenes from Return of the Jedi.
A great built of Han Solo and Chewie.
And, finally a humorous version of Dagobah Luke and Yoda. Ready to hike through a swamp.
There have been many different Hulk characters in the past few decades. The most notable is the Green Hulk, but the Gray and Red Hulk make him work for his fame. Gilcelio Chagas, over at Flickr, has recently revealed their new Lego MOC. “The three Hulks” are pretty slick Lego figures. The studs for nipples is hilarious. Gilcelio Chagas cleared up some confusion concerning the Incredible Hulks. The Green, Gray, and Red Hulks are not all Bruce Banner, but Joe Fixit (Gray) and General Thaddeus E. “Tunderbolt” Ross (Red). Usually the Hulk walks a fine line with sanity, but leans on the good side of morality scale. Not so for the Red Hulk, who is usually a villain. The more you know…
Despicable Me and Despicable Me 2 have proven to be extremely popular. This is mainly do to the little Minion character. The little Minions appear to be stupid (although some seem to geniuses) but full of personality. Even with these limitations they find themselves in a variety of situations where they end up ruining an experiment, or getting hurt. Even so, they might one day end up saving the planet.
Lego Admiral, from Flickr, has created a smorgasbord of Lego Minions. The newest is “Minion Maid – Phil” and features a little Minion dressed up as a maid, complete with a vacuum cleaner. Take a good look at the vacuum, because it is genius. The shape of it is spot on, and best of all it is built with relatively few bricks. The Lego Minion design is based on 3D sphere building techniques. This gives the Minions a very rotund appearance. Lego Admiral has created 3 basic body types that can be mixed and matched with varying hair and eye combinations. This semi-modular design means that these can quickly multiply into a full blow Minion army.
Despicable Me 2 is almost out on DVD/Blu-ray which means that the Minions have been getting in trouble again. Double trouble. Look out, these two have been experimenting with rocketry. Double Trouble, is the creation of Miro78. These Minions look like they use more common Lego pieces then other models. The use of the old(ish) Lego smily brick is perfect, and the red slope is a great tongue. As usual these are a perfect fit with Lego, preserving the goofy Minion personality with a minimum of bricks.
“We are the fighting Uruk-hai! We slew the great warrior. We took the prisoners. We are the servants of Saruman the Wise, The White Hand: The Hand that gives us man’s-flesh to eat. We came out of Isengard, and led you here, and we shall lead you back by the way we choose.” — The Two Towers, J.R.R. Tolkien
