  1. Interesting question. It's hard to imagine a Lego movie that could match the originality and widespread appeal of The Lego Movie. The Lego Batman Movie works because he's Batman and he has a rich history to draw inspiration from. One thing that would be great would be a Lego TMNT movie if they can get the license back from Megabloks. They have a rich history to draw inspiration from too and would make for a fun movie (certainly a better one than the Michael Bay ones). I would also love a Lego Avatar: The Last Airbender movie, mostly just to get more sets and to get a good Avatar movie, but that's obviously not gonna happen. That could work. And then have a Lego Batman V Lego Superman Movie! Or maybe it could be a buddy-cop movie where he is forced to team up with Green Lantern to save the day. I would love that too, but yeah, sadly it's unlikely. A Lego Harry Potter movie would be great too and much more likely (especially with WB trying to milk that franchise as much as they can). The problem is: What would a Lego Harry Potter movie or Lego Star Wars movie even be about? A simple parody of the movies would be unoriginal and has already been done in the video games and TV specials, and I can't think of any other story they could do. Then again, maybe that could be the message of the movie? To not let your creativity be limited by the source material and that you can create any HP/SW story you want? Sign me up too! As TLM made abundantly clear, any of the supporting characters were actually much more interesting than Emmet since they are so unique and flawed, so some movies exploring the origins of these characters could be interesting. Maybe there is a tragic backstory that explains why Unikitty is so emotionally unbalanced or why Benny is so obsessed with spaceships and old technology. And yes, making more shorts starring some other Lego themes is a great idea! YES to all of this! I loved the audiobook that came packaged with some 1st wave sets in Germany, so a Lego Adventurers Movie would be great, but considering how old that theme is, not very likely. And yes, I'm hoping the Billion Brick Race is gonna be a Whacky Racers type movie with lots of fun crazy vehicles too! Isn't that kind of what The Lego Movie was? It even starred Batman and Wyldstyle.
  2. Neither is Storks, so I don't see what that has to do with anything.
  3. I must warn you, today's funnys could get a little... Strange. The Last Realitybender by Okay Yaramanoglu, on Flickr Marvelous Sherlocks by Okay Yaramanoglu, on Flickr Doctor Shrink by Okay Yaramanoglu, on Flickr
  4. Sorry, I didn't mean to mini-mod. Don't let me tell you what to post. If you want to post your customs, go right ahead. I was simply expressing my opinion that a picture of a single minifig that isn't even official Lego doesn't really count as a "Lego Superheroes collection" in my eyes. But then again, I'm a purist, so what do I know.
  5. Nice collections everyone! However, I feel like this thread has gotten off-topic as it has turned into Sebiron and Robianco's customs thread. If guys want to show off your customs that's fine, but I feel that they would be more at home in the Minifig Customization forum. Just my humble opinion. That said, here is my Marvel collection. MCU on the top shelf, Animated Universe on the bottom shelf. I also have a DC display, but it's a WIP and will probably be expanded greatly with the release of the Lego Batman Movie sets. I'll post it once it is at a point that I'm happy with. You can see my full Lego Display here.

  6. From Brickset: 31062 Exploration Robots 31064 Seaplane Adventures 10706 Blue Creative Box 10707 Red Creative Box 10708 Green Creative Box 10709 Orange Creative Box The robot looks great and the Seaplane reminds me of the Seaduck from TaleSpin!
  7. Thanks! I know Lilo is a bit plain and I appreciate the suggestion, but I don't think that torso would suit her. It would just add wrinkles to her dress and even in the most detailed illustrations of her, her dress is pretty smooth and wrinkle-free. Good suggestions! Unfortunately I don't have that torso and arms, so if someone else could put this together, it would be incredible!
  8. According to that article, that rumor has been debunked.
  9. Everything is Awesome! Everything is cool when you're having fun in the snow! When I think of snow, I always think about all the fun things you can build with it! Being Masterbuilders, the heroes from The Lego Movie are thinking the same thing. Here you can see them building various sculptures out of snow. Emmet is building a Snowkitty, Lucy is building a snowman of her ex, and Benny built - what else - a snowship, snowship, SNOWSHIP, fully armed with carrot missiles! Masterbuilder Snow Fun by Okay Yaramanoglu, on Flickr Ever since I saw the orange Unikitty horn I've been wanting to make a Snowkitty, so this vignette was a great opportunity to finally build one. You can get a closer look at her here. Happy holidays and good luck everybody!
  10. I love the Worms games, so a Lego game in a very similar style would be great. It could have a character and weapon creator and a level editor in addition to a story mode and multiplayer. The environments would be completely made out of bricks and plates like in Lego Worlds, so that you can destroy chunks of it just like in Worms. Maybe it could include locations and factions from existing Lego themes so that you can pit Pirates against Ninjas, Knights vs. City Police, or Spacemen vs. Friends!
  11. I don't usually post in all-caps, but... YOUNG JUSTICE SEASON 3 IS OFFICIALLY COMING!! Very exciting news and a great victory for the fans! I just hope it will be released on Netflix and not Cartoon Network.
  12. Thanks! It took me a while to figure it out too. The key is this piece which has an X at the bottom that allows you to attach the third barrel centered.
  13. Nice! That MOS armor is perfect for him! I loved that show and I made the Hornets from it a few years ago along with a more accurate blaster for Zurg: Zurg with blaster and Hornet by Okay Yaramanoglu, on Flickr
  14. Here is just a quick update to show you my attempt at a purist minifig of Joy. I used Marge Simpson's body and the hair from the CMF Cyborg. While this works fairly well, I still prefer my original design, so this is not meant to replace that. It's just an exercise to explore an alternate look for the character. Let me know what you think. Pure Joy by Okay Yaramanoglu, on Flickr You can see more purist custom Disney figs and share your own in this thread that I just created. Thanks again to everyone who has supported so far! We currently have over 5600 supporters, so we're over halfway there, but we still have quite a way to go, so please keep supporting and sharing!
  15. To all who come to this happy thread, welcome! As you may know, I'm a huge Disney fan, so after the popularity of the Purist Superhero Figs thread, I figured it would be great to have a similar thread dedicated to creating purist Disney minifigs! Since it will probably be a while until we get another series of Disney CMFs (if we get one at all!) it's up to us to fill up the roster of minifigs based on Disney movies. Anything from TV shows, short films, animated features, and live-action films is welcome here! Flesh skin-toned figs are preferred since they look more accurate and fit in with the CMFs (unless the character has a different skin color in the source material of course), but yellow figs are accepted as well. Allow me to start by sharing some of my creations. First off, here is a pure Joy from Inside Out. I made her yellow since she always has that golden glow. The Cyborg hair actually suits her pretty well. By the way, if you want an official Joy minifig as well as the other emotions, please support my Inside Out Ideas project! Pure Joy by Okay Yaramanoglu, on Flickr Next we have the Sultan and his trusted advisor Jafar along with Jago from Aladdin. The sultan's turban doesn't fit on his head completely due to the beard. He could use a cape, but sadly there are no tan capes. I'm pretty happy with Jafar, even though his skin is not the right tone. Sultan and Jafar by Okay Yaramanoglu, on Flickr Lilo & Stitch is probably the most under-represented property in Lego, so here are some figs to fix that: Lilo herself, Pleakley, and Cobra Bubbles. Lilo looks a little... boyish, but that's just because the head and hair that are most accurate for her come from male minifigs. Lilo, Pleakley, and Cobra Bubbles by Okay Yaramanoglu, on Flickr Also, this isn't mine, but somebody made a Beast using the minidoll head: So what combos can you come up with to make our Lego Disney dreams come true? Please share your creations along with a little description!
