    Super Heroes 2014 Rumors & Discussion

    Yondu wouldn't work since LEGO doesn't have a mohawk hair piece. Korath is more likely. It's not about the fact that people won't have the Collector in their collections. It's the fact that a lot of people are completionists, and LEGO is making it impossible to have a complete set of figures.

    Bootleg Super Heroes minifigs - worth it or not?

    Both of your originals? :o

    Super Heroes 2014 Rumors & Discussion

    Sometimes I just really hate LEGO. When they announced the Rocket Raccoon set I was thinking 'great, at least I don't have to worry about any other exclusives'. But nope, there's still the 2 others. Maybe even more. F*ck.

    Mysterio is amazing? What's the torso?
  5. I've been noticing that a lot of licensed minifigures have been fairly inaccurate to the source material, mostly because they're based off early concept art. I thought it might be interesting to track down some of that art. Black Widow. I've always been slightly annoyed by the black widow figure, mostly because of the blue lines that aren't present in the final design. I think I've found the pieces of art that the figure was based on. The figure seems to have taken the blue light elements and leg straps from the image on the right, and single belt from the left image. These markings don't appear in the final design: Drax. The thing that bothered me about the Drax figure was the colouring. The character is iconically green, so why was the figure light bluish grey instead of the closer sand green? Probably because of this concept art. It might just be the lighting, but Drax looks decidedly grey in this image, and I'm confident that it's the cause of LEGO's odd colour choice. Final design: If anyone else has any examples of this occurring I'd love to see it!

    Licensed figures being based on concept art

    Good point! I forgot about the possible sequel.

    I still think sand green would be better, but oh well.

    Removing Acrylic Paint!

    Nail polish remover melts the plastic. I ruined a good hairpiece like that.

    Super Heroes 2014 Rumors & Discussion

    Sorry if this is the wrong thread, but I just had a thought for the people that don't like the Green Goblin bigfig. You could always use it as a super skrull.
  10. Thought I'd make a thread to store all of my Marvel minifigs in. I've been inspired by a lot of different people, so I apologise if I've blatantly copied one of your customs. Please leave a comment, I'd love to hear your feedback! Wiccan Gambit The Fantastic Four. The torsos are Decool, except I rounded the shoulders off with a file. Johnny Storm/The Human Torch Red Hulk and Grey Hulk. Both Decool. WWII Captain America. Accessories made by BrickForge. Dr Strange (WIP) The Bombastic Bag-Man Obadiah Stane/The Iron Monger (comic version) Iron Lad Arnim Zola (WIP) Black Widow (movie Avengers version) Professor X Loki (movie Avengers version) Nick Fury and Maria Hill Agents of SHIELD: Coulson's team. (Larger image here.) Deathlok (Agents of SHIELD) Hawkeye (movie Avengers version) Cable and Deadpool MODOK and an AIM Soldier She-Hulk Colossus The Punisher Captain Stacy Hulkling Matt Murdock/Daredevil. My personal favourite superhero and custom. Daredevil is printed by a fantastic customiser who I'm not sure I'm allowed to name. That's all for round one! Hope you guys enjoyed it.

    Which Professor X do you mean?

    Thanks for the link!

    Nice find! And yes, Drax looks less full-on green in the movie, but he's still green enough that making the figure grey is inaccurate. Here's one of the action figures: I didn't really have an issue with Rocket's colouring. He looks good to me.

    Tyrion Lannister

    I think a face with stubble would be a better representation.

    Could anyone identify the piece at the front of this Professor X floating chair? I'm trying to track down the part on Bricklink.

    How's this? Also, WIP Kitty Pryde. Thank you! I think he had bone claws in the past, but in the future (which is the version I'm basing the minifig off) he had the adamantium claws.

    Probably not without a polish of some kind.

    My MARVEL MOCs

    Sounds like a stable enough connection. I might steal borrow that idea.

    I really like those modified hairpieces for Kraven and Sabretooth. Are they glued or do they stay in place by themselves?

    Good idea with the CMF swimmer legs. I might try to order some of those. Thank you! By K-Nut's suggestion, I've rejigged my DoFP X-Men a bit, and added a Warpath and a WIP Magneto (need to find better hair for him). Better?

    I tried using dark blue, but I thought that the bright light orange arms worked better, because they balanced out the blue from the arc-reactor on the torso. I wanted there to be at least some yellow in there because it captures Wolverine better. I'll have a think about alternatives. He's definitely my favourite as well.

    Thank you! I agree about the overuse of the Hawkeye torso. I'm going to have to find some more tactical looking ones to use.

    You might need to sand down his chest area first, or else it'll look a bit odd.

    I'm back with an update. Let me know what your favourites are. Yellowjacket -The head is a pad printed Red Bird head from Phoenix Custom Bricks. Quicksilver -The torso is from eBay seller Poppunkmunky. It's digital printed and I don't love the quality, but it does the job. Moon Knight [WIP] Lady Sif Dum Dum Dugan (updated) Falcon - Don't love the torso. I'll try and get one from the TDKR Bane figure in the future. Brock Rumlow/Crossbones Batroc the Leaper Alexander Pierce (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) Agents of SHIELD: Deathlok (updated) John Garrett DoFP Colossus DoFP Wolverine -The hair is a Superman hairpiece with the spit-curl sanded off. I think it looks pretty good. DoFP Bobby (Iceman) DoFP Professor X Bucky (comic version) And my personal favourite: The Winter Soldier I'd love to hear your thoughts on this batch. Constructive criticism is welcome.
