    [MOC]: ACE, "The Chemical Place"

    ACE, "The Chemical Place" This was a simple build I created for Rebrick's Best of Batman contest, for the location category. This is my second entry into the contest; my first being the Catmobile. In typical Lego Movie Batman fashion, the un-mopped catwalk is the Red Hood's undoing as he soon finds he's transformed from simple crook into the clown prince of crime himself, the Joker! The build features the infamous origin of the Joker, as based loosely on The Killing Joke. While the front of the build features the memorable open vats of toxic chemicals, a prime example of good safety standards, the exterior features not only a representation of the ACE building itself but also a focus on the result of the Red Hood's slip on the catwalk--his transformation into the Joker. To achieve Joker's reflection in the water, I layered Lego foam mirror pieces from the Modular Line.

    Marvel Superheroes 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    Speaking of Spider-Man… FYI everyone, myself and the other Licensed Moderators, @Clone OPatra & @VBBN, will be continuing the Eurobricks tradition of temporarily closing the Marvel thread around the release of a major spoiler filled MCU film, ie Spider-Man: No Way Home. This is the only way to prevent blatant spoiler posts during the first weekend release—this tradition was very much appreciated during past releases such as Endgame. As such, the 2021 Marvel Set discussion thread will be locked from roughly December 14th to December 20th. On Monday, December 20th, we will “reopen” the Marvel thread (now to be named 2022 discussion). After which all (Lego relevant) discussion will be allowed. If you come to the Marvel thread on or after December 20th, expect discussion of Spider-Man SPOILERS to be open/allowed, you have been warned! Thanks everyone!

    MOC(s): "Batman: Heart of Ice"

    Heart of Ice Batman Animated Series This is the second longer series of creations I’ve made based off an episode from Batman: The Animated Series, the award winning episode “Heart of Ice”. This took significantly longer then Almost Got ‘Im, though that’s totally due to my laziness. Anyways, enjoy the creations that depict the new origins of Mr. Freeze—which we all now can’t live without! 1) Title This is how I will always remember you. Surrounded by winter. Forever young. Forever beautiful. Rest well my love. The monster who took you from me will soon learn that revenge is a dish best served cold... 2) That's Mr. Freeze to You Load those canisters…hurry! Are you done? All set…uhh…ahhh! The Batman! Freeze! That’s Mr. Freeze to you! 3) Nora My God! Yes. It would move me to tears, if I still had tears to shed. 4) Warm Hand to Hold The snow is beautiful, don't you think? Clean, uncompromising... And Cold. Like the swift hand of vengeance. I saw what happened to your wife…I’m sorry. I'm beyond emotions. They've been frozen dead in me. That suit you wear, a result of the coolant? Very good, a detective to the last. I can no longer survive outside a sub-zero environment. Tonight, I mean to pay back the man who ruined my life... our lives. Even if you have to kill everyone in the building to do it? Think of it, Batman. To never again walk on a summer's day with the hot wind in your face and a warm hand to hold. Oh yes, I'd kill for that! 5) Icy Revenge Stop... Please... I beg you! You beg? In my nightmares I see my Nora behind the glass begging to me with frozen eyes. How I've longed to see that look frozen on you! 6) Warm Hand Awaits I failed you. I wish there were another way for me to say it. I cannot. I can only beg your forgiveness, and pray you hear me somehow, someplace... someplace where a warm hand waits for mine. --- Enjoy ~Nemo

    Who asked for that?! Who asked for transparent geometric shaped diamond dresses Lego?! Who asked?! Name names damnit! Yeesh. There just always has to be something wrong with these princess sets. Whatever, I’m gonna buy it anyways, but I’m not happy about it.

    Everyone, @Darkdragon kindly asked you to keep film discussion out of this thread, and yet it continues. So I will ask in a not-so-kind way, Keep film discussion out of this thread! This thread is for Lego set discussion, not for deciphering MCU marketing material. If you wish to discuss the films, go over to Culture & Multimedia.

    MOC: Gotham City Museum Heist

    Gotham City Museum Heist Batman! A new villain has commandeered the Gotham Museum. He's frozen the antiquities wing, he's turned the security guards into blocks of ice, he's calling himself, Mr. Freeze! For my latest build, I decided to go back to a build concept I set my eyes on years ago, the Gotham City Museum Heist. I love to come up with new build concepts, which unfortunately means I more than frequently don't actually build most of them. For instance, I originally ordered the custom chromed pieces for the Mr. Freeze you see here, like four years ago? And I'm just getting around to this build now! As we all know, Batman & Robin is a masterpiece something-that-happened, and yet the gaudy styling and subtle use of neon still inspire us today. I wanted to pay tribute to the greatest of Batman films with this piece: Like the film that inspired it, this build is a lot. There's a lot. There's just a lot. As is now my custom (of wasting parts), it has full 360 degree detailing. Because I bring everything to conventions now, I'm always making sure that each and every side of my builds have something going on. The interior represents the frozen museum and its artifacts; while the exterior represents scaled down outside and the large bulky body builders who support it. As is hopefully evident, there are many many lights incorporated into the build. All of them are 3rd party (Lifelites, my brand of choice). I lost count, but I think there are around 70 individual LED lights. It takes around, again lost count, 18 AAA batteries to power up fully. Exterior And like the common TARDIS, the interior is too big for the exterior! I custom made stickers for the "Gotham Museum" sign, by printing out lettering from my inkjet onto transparent label stickers. This was a technique I stole picked up from @Silver.Smith & @Evensong To support the heavy weight of History, I constructed some very appropriate Spartans, to work that History, work it good. The right side also features banners for the legally distinct Dinosaur portion of the Museum. The left side features two large air ducts, which have frozen over from the mayhem inside. The symbol above the perfect specimen is a custom tile by Chrome Block City. Chrome Block City is the custom seller, based out of Poland, who I get all my chromed bricks from, including Mr. Freeze seen here. I'm not sponsored, I just like his stuff. He used to have a Bricklink store, but now he has his own site--if you need custom chrome; that's a great place to get it in my opinion. Interior Lots of ice! That's most of it. This is a build I'm really excited to bring to conventions (when that's a thing again), because all of the lighting makes it so fun to look at, if not frustrating to photograph. One of the notable bits of the interior are the two floater columns. These are used to blast light onto the build, so as to make it more visible in the dark. They are also designed to work well in convention settings, in that when displayed on the table, they'll give the impression that floorspace for the build is larger than it actually is. Despite having some floating columns to make the build seem larger, this is actually one of the deepest builds I have created. The walls are almost as thicc as the men who hold them up. The columns are all made of sand red cylinder pieces, which are rare but not really expensive. I know you were thinking about it. It was mostly just a chore to get enough of them--I had to buy from at least six different vendors to get enough. Additionally as is customary for my builds, I plastered stickers everywhere. The columns have most of the stickers, are almost comprised from only three sticker sheets, but like most of the stickers on the sheets. (it's these three) Removing the floating columns reveals a still large build, but with a slightly better look at the frozen Brontosaurus! You'll also see the four frozen lamp posts; they add some nice lighting to the build and some design flair. The two brick high base for this build is present because I needed to run wiring under all the flooring, which itself is rather overly elaborate. Now, before Mr. Freeze invaded, this was just your standard run of the mill, over the top museum. And you can see remnants of that still under the ice. The large Aztec inspired pyramid is both beautiful to look at and full of literally feet of wiring! It is largely hollow, both so that I could have space to hide the six? battery boxes inside and leave open air space for internal lights to brighten up the levels. Also in the museum, Robin the boy wonder is getting mauled by non-exhibit Polar Bears. Moving along. To create the ice, I grabbed whatever transparent blue brick I could find. That's mostly true! I used a combination of light, medium, and dark transparent bricks, slopes, and other odd bits all in the hopes of getting some nice lighting moments. It kinda worked out. I also used some 400? --again, bad with remembering numbers!-- unicorn horns in light blue to really give the ice a spikey aesthetic. Forgive me please, I ran out, I still have to add some more in. Here we see Mr. Freeze, standing at the peak of the icy pyramid. I'm really happy with how much light I was able to work into the structure, despite ultimately not getting as many individual LEDs as I would have liked. Yes, it needs more lights, don't judge me. Batman, meanwhile, is playing hockey with some of Mr. Freeze's goons. The Batman figure is custom made by Brothers Figure. Behind them is a poor frozen Security Guard. He was technically the first thing I built for this creation--I think I made him some 7 or 8 months ago. Not that I worked on this for that many months--just that it takes me forever to get around to finishing some things! The hunky Mr. Freeze goon, named Dylan probably, uses a custom torso by Citizen Brick. Brontosaurus Next up is the large dinosaur, which was really intimidating to build. One of the reasons it took me so long to get around to actually constructing this build was the fact that it is generally just a lot! There's a lot of components to the build, so looking at it from a distance can be intimidating. But--like always it is helpful to break things up, so the Brontosaurs was essentially the last thing I built, and surprisingly it was rather easy to build; it only took a day or two. While seemingly large, it was difficult to incorporate all the wiring within him. He has his own separate battery box imbedded within his chest, and I had to work around weaving wiring for the lights up his neck and down the tail. He does have some limited movement, but largely he is designed to be supported by his pedestal in the museum--even if that pedestal is a bit small! Also for fun, Batman can clime and ride the Brontosaurus! Mr. Freeze Now the part you all scrolled down to, immediately, Mr. Freeze! When I decided some four years ago, that I wanted to do this Batman & Robin homage, I knew immediately that I had to have a chromed Mr. Freeze. Fortunately, as noted before, I was able to get every part I needed in chrome from Chrome Block City--actually without needing to make any special requests, he had all the parts I needed already chromed, which was great. If I remember right he cost about the equivalent of four MSRP Mr. Freezes at the time. So not crazy. Mr. Freeze does have his standard mech-fig range of motion, via the mixels ball joints, although I will say the chrome does make it a bit tighter than normal! Still, I'm shocked at how well he photographed! Like him, Mr. Freeze's goon are very fashionable. They have varied winter hats and fishnet leggings. The shining winter shoulder coverings are also magnificent, and they reflect some of the light. While he does not sport Polar Bears in this movie, I felt is was appropriate to give Mr. Freeze some here. While this build is inspired by Batman & Robin, it's characterization is inspired by The Lego Batman Movie. I love the over the top nature in that film, both in the styling and in the characters--so you'll see that reflected in all of my newer Batman builds. Plus it's hilarious that giant Polar Bears look tiny next to him! And of course, the two stars together! Thanks! Thanks so much for checking this out! This is one of those dream builds that you never know if you'll actually make. It's also one of those nightmare builds where you never know when it's gonna end! So this has really been a satisfying experience seeing it come together, and I hope you had a fun experience checking it out!

    Imma be real upset if Series 2 doesn’t happen! Please someone get a lifeboat! Save the Vampire and Dragon! Maybe the Gummy Bear. Everyone else, fend for yourself. But seriously, the worst thing about S2 being potentially canceled is that we’ve already seen it and can never un-see it.

    The Loki show is not relevant to discuss HERE at all. We are not getting sets based off the show. We are getting two minifigures as part of a CMF series. That’s it. This is not the place to discuss the show itself and spoilers from it. This is a Lego discussion thread, one that specifically gets highly agitated when members start casually whipping out seconds old spoilers. I can’t remember how many times I’ve had to address this. I won’t be addressing it anymore. Post spoilers and you’re out. Be respectful of your fellow members everyone. Thanks.
