The Lego Batman Movie is pretty full of comics-nerd gags, ranging from some lighthearted meta-commentary on Batman and the Joker’s relationship to sight gags referencing Batman’s, ah, curious past. And if the new minifigs tied to the movie are any indication, what we’ve seen is just the start. Amid the Commissioner Gordon’s and the Glam Metal Batmans, here’s the nutty stuff that, yes, the comics beat Lego to. Yes, Batman once fought a human pencil who could “erase” people, and this was after the Batman comics decided they’d gotten too weird and goofy in the ’50s trying to get along with the Comics Code. Remember, this was the same era where DC heroes regularly fought gorillas solely because a gorilla on the cover sold more comics. Not, amazingly, a Silver Age villain, the Mime was, well, a mime turned martial artist and thief after she opened a performing mime troupe and saw it promptly shut down. Believe it or not, she actually managed to choke out Batman on a few occasions, but DC learned that people just generally don’t like mimes, supervillains or not.
March Harriet was a small-time grifter recruited by some supervillains because they were putting together a “Wonderland Gang,” her name was Harriet, and they wanted to stay on theme. On the other hand, considering what Gotham was like, probably joining Tweedledee and Tweedledum in a gang would be a step up, in terms of risk reduction if nothing else. The Calculator, in comics at the moment, is basically an information broker in a suit who works for villains. Back in the day, though, yes, he wore a suit of armor and a visor with buttons on his chest. He could even push the buttons. It’s a running gag in modern comics just how embarrassed he is to have ever worn that outfit in public. Admittedly, we have a soft spot for Dr. Grace Ballin, a villain from the 2000s who was a deliberate throwback to the days of meaningful names and goofy gimmicks. She is still basically a supervillain who doubles as a fat joke, though. To his credit, Zodiac Master had a pretty awesome scam going: He’d convince gangsters he could predict the future by engineering disasters and then pretending he’d seen them.
If he had waited about thirty years, he’d probably have gotten his own grim and gritty ’90s anti-hero book and throwing stars shaped like Zodiac symbols. Zodiac Master was ahead of his time! These minifigs will be available in blind bags in January.

The short will play before Storks, due to open in theaters September 23, 2016. If you even think about bringing government, baby sitters, bedtimes, frowny faces, bushy mustaches, or negativity of any kind into her town then she’s gonna do to your face what Limp Bizkit did to music in the late 90s! Grantmasters, continuing in his quest to find new and exciting uses for that Belville shoe, created this adorable mash-up of everyone’s favorite brick-built pony-cat and the foul-mouthed antihero that’s currently tearing up the box office. Cotton-candy coated chimichangas anyone? When you’re scouting for things worth blogging, it’s easy for your head to get turned by enormous creations or complex builds. However, sometimes it can be a relatively simple model in a good composition which catches the eye. This neat diorama from city.s is a great example of how a clean building style, decent photography, and a touch of humor can create an arresting image (pun absolutely intended)…
The color contrast in the picture is excellent, with the red of the “resistance piece car” really popping against the blue sky backdrop. And the brick-built vehicle itself and the road surface are nicely done. But the choice of face for the Emmett minifig was the touch of detail which made me smile. And, when it comes down to it, surely that’s what a LEGO creation is for? Unikitty is one of my favorite characters from The LEGO Movie, but I don’t know that I love all the line-ups of Unikitty variations I’m constantly running across. But this one is different. tankm has built nineteen different Unikitties as characters from the entire Star Wars saga. Here are my three favorites, conveniently in a single picture — Unikitty Chewie, Unikitty Han Solo, and Unikitty Han Solo in carbonite. I also like Luke & Leia’s parents — the expression on Unikitty Queen Amidala’s face is priceless. “The Birth of Venus” by Sandro Botticelli is one of those paintings that you study in Art History, poring over the symbolism and innovative Renaissance techniques until the painting becomes one with the millions of reproductions you’ve seen all your life, losing any interest or meaning it may have had.
(Clearly, I much prefer “Primavera”…) So, I’m always pleased to run across a refreshing new take on a classic work of art. Polish builder Bartłomiej Sekuła has built a three-dimensional version of the painting reminiscent of a tableau vivant, with minifigs representing each of the figures in the original work. That’s actually pretty cool on its own, but Bartłomiej goes one step further with a parody version of this iconic scene. Click for the big reveal!

We’re having an animal-centric day here at The Brothers Brick (at least so far). A parrot named Princess Yellow Feather sings selections from Everything Is Awesome!!! from The LEGO Movie — need I say more? I had an opportunity to review LEGO Movie 70814 Emmet’s Construct-o-Mech Building Set, provided for us by LEGO. The set runs $59.99 USD, with 708 pieces.I like the set. I think it’s got an excellent selection of parts overall. I enjoyed the build thoroughly. There are some excellent details to the model overall that make it appear particularly impressive. It looks really nifty. After having built it, though? I can’t say I’d pay full price for it. Let’s explore more, shall we? Welcome back fight fans, to Sin City Nevada for another round of Friday Night Fights. Tonight we join an ongoing fray, as the LEGO world continues to be gripped with Exo-suit mania. Hec, even the animals are getting in on the action! But let’s up the ante and give this a cinematic twist, shall we?
In the R-rated corner, we have a recreation of an A.P.U. from The Matrix Trilogy by Niki Dregant: While over in the PG-rated corner, lurks a Unikitty-piloted Cloud Cuckoo Land Mech by Martin Gee: As usual, constant reader, you are tasked with deciding, by way of comment, who will stomp their way to glory, and who is destined for the scrap heap. On the last edition of Friday Night Fights, Devil in the architecture Details, Nick Barrett’s Georgian town house prevailed with a monumental score of 11-0. Tune in next week for another action packed edition of Friday Night Fights! Being the only builder gutsy enough ever to attempt a minifig scaled version of Howl’s moving castle, it’s comes as no surprise to discover that Imagine Rigney was behind this mind-bending recreation of the fall of Cloud Cuckoo Land from The LEGO Movie… But the diorama just wouldn’t be complete without our heros escaping in the Bat Submarine. So he build that too, naturally. This makes me really wish LEGO would put out more official sets based on that particular region of the LEGO Movie universe.
