    People who think the printing was too simple for LEGO think too highly of LEGO.

    It looks real. Nice to see people are skeptical after that whole red Batman debate a while back, but this actually looks real and doesn't copy a design nor does it look so ridiculously cheap. I was thinking about it, the arena set would've been nice as like a $25-$30 set like the Hulkbuster. Just take the purple guard or whatever out and make walls that actually look like there was some thought and effort put into it. Something with a wall/door breaking function and maybe a feature that shakes the walls.

    DC Superheroes 2017 - Set Discussion

    It definitely looks like a new piece. If it was a real LEGO arm holding it, you'd see it pointing back much more prominently than the actual piece it's using. It looks like an arm piece that will connect the two pieces you mentioned and hopefully offer the normal range of motion without potentially ruining the torso. It also looks like a chief complaint of the BvS Batman is being corrected in the Knightcrawler set as the design continues down the legs. Thank goodness for that. Most any set is better than that supposed "Battle Arena"

    What was the last movie you watched?

    I bought 11 films the other day and decided to talk about some of them as I love them. I first bought the Cornetto trilogy, only $26 on Apple so I thought it was a fantastic deal. Shaun of the Dead: Really witty film but was fairly basic for my liking, due to Edgar Wright's impeccable attention to detail it elevated the experience for me. It was a fantastic introduction to Wright and his insane world. Hot Fuzz: My favorite of the Cornetto trilogy, it took everything that I liked from Shaun of the Dead and made a better movie from it. Fluidity between scenes, interesting side characters, entertaining death scenes. It's the perfect parody that could stand just as well if it were just an action flick. The World's End: I have some mixed feelings on this one. It's hard to watch all three and not compare them in some way, as you may see. It's an ensemble film so it's hard to care about all of these characters. I don't see Wright as an ensemble director and it's clear to see by the end of it. It's a great film but it bears the burden of being an anchor to a trilogy that's not really a trilogy but can be interpreted as one. I also bought all six LotR/The Hobbit Extended Editions for $40, it was a fantastic deal that was without doubt worth it. I haven't powered through the Hobbit movies but the Extended Editions of the LotR trilogy were great examples of how additional scenes can make fantastic films into exceptional classics. Small character scenes strewn throughout the films were so impressively done and still flowed the movie through. I actually found watching the normal trilogy the first time as somewhat of a chore, upon watching the Extended Editions, it flowed as I said before. It also made larger scenes much more impactful for me at least. I love Taika Waititi and his films, buying Boy and Hunt for the Wilderpeople was a fantastic choice. Boy is my favorite coming of age movie, a personal film with some great characters. While Boy is a great character, I actually found his brother to be my favorite character. Thought provoking to say the least. People may hate the ending but the whole film was subtle, a subtle ending fit. Hunt for the Wilderpeople is my second favorite Taika film though it is his best. With some more money and caliber of actors, Waititi can make some images come to reality that he once might have had trouble doing, the editing is phenomenal though the film does have minor pacing issues. Some great shots indeed. It was also a much funnier film than Boy but still had the heart of Boy. That's it. I try not to spoil too much.

    These are terrible too. What the heck!? I'm just going to BL Cyborg and Aquaman then buy the Knightcrawler to build my own version. Really lazy sets for both Marvel and DC this movie season...

    Oh god, the arena set is atrocious. Whoever designed it must've had the time of their life doing so. I'm definitely buying the Asgard set though, all that I really would need is there.

    [MOC] Batmobile Injustice Gods Among Us/The Return V2

    Your best Batmobile IMO. Though putting a fig it it makes it really awkward, I wouldn't imagine that adding a few tiles for height would be hard. Then again, if the shape and details suffer, I'm fine right now.

    [MOD] 7709 Silent Strike rewamp

    Beautiful MOD!
  13. 2.2360679775 Squared Need a group of survivors in the apocalypse? Looks like you've found the wrong group! This merciless band of survivors are the most merciless. If that doesn't terrify you enough, then read the equally ghoulish introductions to these characters that may or may not show up in a future build for this exact contest! Dale - The sniper of the crew, upon the crisis of many sniper problems, he's figured out the solutions to all of them. Dale was legally blind but upon discovering 20/20 vision glasses, he could see clearly. Another complaint of many was if a zombie walked up behind you and tried eating you, nothing would protect you. Alas, Dale made a shield to protect his precious spinal cord. Among this, he added a grappling gun on his shoulder to get out of tricky situations. Unless he's in the middle of a field then he's actually quite unprepared. Kate - The mechanic of the crew who is ironically named. Though bearing striking resemblances, her hard work often proves well worth any frustrations with her arrogance. To many, her weapon is just a revolver; little did the doubters know that she's made a fully automatic revolver! Often left alone on scouting runs, she enjoys her time with her robotic crab N.O.R.B.E.R.T. which isn't an acronym. She just likes the name Norbert but doesn't want anyone thinking the name doesn't have further meaning. Tim Bateman - The bait. This newcomer is absolutely void of fear. The cook of the crew is by far the member with the most composure in situations, I mean, look at that face! No worries at all, right? Tim is a bit on the heavier side, but the group insists that his physical health is their number one priority. Tim feels lonely romantically so he often finds himself considering trying to take it slow with a nice zombie woman who just wants him for his companionship, not his internal organs. Greg - Demolition man with the most heart you'll never see. Greg has the same problems as every human, knocking others down when you try to take photos, falling backward when you try to take photos, and forcing the photographer to build a completely new base just to accommodate. His specialty is mining and exploding. He's got a robot arm which is cool to some people, others think it's much too flashy and that he'd be better off with just the stub. Over his shoulder is a wire, detonator dispenser thing that he connects to TNT to make a long fuse. He has a small pick-axe then he's got a tiny one on his back. Equipped with a chainsaw, an axe-blade, and a scythe. Upon learning he could efficiently mine with laser focus, Kate made him a tactical laser sight on the pick-axe. REDACTED - This militant member often falls upon earlier practices, much like censoring her real name in a zombie apocalypse. Olivia believes this group needed a leader. Her military expertise was a useful asset when first starting out. She likes to say she has the best guns of the group, though many complain about her weapons being unresourceful and usually inaccurate. She doesn't need this hate however and Oliva proves time and time again that her zombie killing skills are unparalleled.

    That Loki is beautiful! What a great head that will hopefully become a new generic head. The main generic heads usually lack expression but thanks to the newer Captain America head they've been a bit more expressive.
