Batman - LEGO Super Heroes Minifigs - DC Comics

Batman - LEGO Super Heroes Minifigs - DC ComicsSooooo....Bats gets four villains and two suits? Ist there any doubt where LEGO is putting their eggs? Superman gets Lex Luthor, Wonder Woman gets boots and the Avengers get to fight each other. I'm not really a superhero nerd but these have me pretty excited and it looks like a pretty strong line-up for the first year. DC gets a January release and the Marvel heroes get to come later in 2012 so it makes me wonder if we're looking at characters from the first two waves of sets.

The Hulk - LEGO Super Heroes Minifigs - Marvel Comics
The Hulk looks incredibly badass! I'm really glad they went with the oversized figure for him, a regular minifig just couldn't do it justice.
Wonder Woman - LEGO Super Heroes Minifigs - DC ComicsSuperman - LEGO Super Heroes Minifigs - DC Comics
Of course with the unshown Green Lantern and the previously shown Batman, we're well on our way to getting the whole Justice League....the only one missing is Aquaman. Before you comic nerds jump down my neck about that comment, just take a moment and think.....OK....admit it; that's all you really need. :-P

There really isn't anything here to be critical of. It's really wise, I suppose. I don't like it. It's not something I would pay any attention to but the usual suspects really love this piece of, art. Disturbing can be fun sometimes but not this time. Check the groups it's in. Some of the builders out there are getting a little big in their britches methinks.

I need to get something off my chest.

It's not LEGO related but I just don't have the gumption to maintain two blogs so I'm just going to ignore my other blog.
This is a message to the entire world. Please, please, please, if you have somebody coming to look at your dishwasher on a certain day...make sure the fucking thing is empty. Not full and running. If a builder has scheduled me to be at your house at 9:00 am on a certain day, I will be there at 9:00 am and expect your dishwasher to be empty. The next time I arrive at some body's house and their dishwasher is halfway through a cycle, I'm fucking leaving. Period, point blank. I'm not being rebellion but I might go to a scrip club though.
Also, yeah, there's a really good chance that I'll need to get under your sink. The water doesn't magically get into your dishwasher so it might only be polite to have all your Kirkland garbage bags, various Mr. Clean bottles, the ashtrays that you only bring out when Granny comes over (even though you don't let her smoke in the house) and of course, that mother-fucking disgusting jar of sickening bacon grease that you only save because that same Granny taught your mom to do thus passing the habit on to you. If it's not empty, I'm just going to pull all that shit out and leave it all over your kitchen when I'm done. So there.

Midlin Forest

This diorama is called Midlin Forest and was built by Johan Warden. Sorry if I got either of those wrong, I had a bit of a hard time making out the words on the card.
It's really brooding and creepy and I don't really understand what's going on but I love it's vast emptiness. It makes me think of Ichabod Crane and the Legend of Sleepy Hollow and that gives me ideas. Thanks for the inspiration Johan!

NPU? For those of you who don't know yet, it mean Nice Part Use. As far as I'm concerned it's an acronym that can go away any time but this hot rod pick-up will stay in my heart forever.

What the hell blogger!!??

I do a write up that is auto-saved every ten second and when I hit the submit button blogger takes me to a login page and THEN gives me some stoopid error and now my work is lost?? What. The. Fuck?
Remember, users, it's not the computer's fault it's the fucking software you're using. ;)

Who ya gonna call?

It's funny, just the other day I was screening Ghostbusters to see if it was indeed suitable for my five year old son to watch. No, no I don't think is was but I did think that no LEGO city display would be complete without Ghostbuster HQ. I might even get lazy and just steal the design this dude came up with.
Nannan took the picture at a con but does anyone know who built it?
