DC has unveiled the world’s largest LEGO Batmobile for their upcoming tour The Art of the Brick: DC Comics, and it’s the work of artist Nathan Sawaya. The amount of work that went into this project is just mind-blowing.

In collaboration with artist Jim Lee, who sketched the vehicle concept during a SDCC panel, Sawaya spent endless hours and nearly half a million bricks to complete the project. Aside from the sheer scale of the Batmobile, its streamlined profile makes it even more impressive. Speaking with Comic Book Resources, Sawaya explains:

“This became my life. This was a full time job. I dreamt about the Batmobile, I thought about it every time I had a chance to think. It was non-stop. It’s just those tiny pieces, [you have to chase it down], one by one, one by one. You do get to a point that if you miss something, you can see it. You can see it in the pattern that maybe it’s not working and you have to go back and fix it.”

The LEGO Batmobile will be the main attraction when The Art of the Brick: DC Comics exhibition kicks off at the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney, Australia on November 20.

After the break, check out Jim Lee’s sketch and an additional image of the LEGO Batmobile.

wonder woman statue edit

When the first picture of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman was revealed, more than one fan noted that the costume colors appeared to be a bit too muted.

That having been said, the new DC Collectibles 13-inch Wonder Woman resin statue by James Marsano is stunning, and we love the bolder colors.

The statue is estimated to be $150 and it’s slated for a March 2016 arrival.

We saw a glimpse of the S.H. Figurarts Captain Phasma figure along with the First Order Stormtrooper and Kylo Ren back on Force Friday, but official details and image have just recently surfaced.

She’s big, she’s badass and she’s slated for a release in February 2016 for 5,616 yen (approx $46).

Making a LEGO version of that hit Hollywood trailer just got easier thanks to these phonetic Minifig heads.

Twelve heads cover the different mouth shapes made when talking, so all you need to do is change out the heads while you’re animating. Plus, worked with professional animators to get the heads just right.

The bottom line is that this is a great solution that will save you all kinds of time and money in post production.

The super popular app-enabled BB-8 toy is awesome, but is it huggable? Nope—but this 2-foot tall plush version sure is.

Needless to say, you’ll want to jump on the plush BB-8 pre-order quickly if you hope to have one under the tree this year.

han and chewie hot toys

When we got our first look at the Hot Toys Star Wars 1/6 Scale Han Solo and Chewbacca figures last year, I had a feeling they were going to be a thing of beauty. Now I can confirm that 100%.

Everything from Chewbacca’s fur to the intricate details of Han’s holster is spot on. It was an adventure unboxing these because of little things like Han’s droid caller or the fact that each bit of ammo in Chewie’s bandolier can be removed.

There are a fair amount of accessories: Han’s signature blaster, Chewie’s bowcaster, headsets (which also means a separate scalp for Han which was amusing), multiple hands, and a Stormtrooper belt for the exclusive Han figure.

Chewbacca also has a comb for fur control and, having seen him turned into Wolverine in one pic, I can tell you that there’s some fun to be had…

If you’ve seen the really cool Star Wars figures that Square Enix has released, then you know they’re a thing of beauty. They’ve also inspired artist Iain Reed to create character portraits based on previously released images of the Darth Vader, Boba Fett, and Stormtrooper figures.

I’ll admit, this is the first time I’ve seen an artist do fan art of an action figure, but I hope it’s not the last.

Take a closer look after the break.

If you’re stoked on Metal Gear Solid V, then you’ll probably dig this new Venom Snake figure from Union Creative. It features 27 points of articulation and comes with a whole mess of cool accessories including a knife, a phantom cigar (always a must!), a sniper rifle, a papercraft box (for sneaking) and six optional hands. The $65 price tag is a bit steep ($95 will get you the figure before January apparently), but hey—six hands!

S.H. Figuarts Ultron Exclusive

The SH Figuarts line is about to get one serious bad guy with this Ultron Figure. At 6.9 inches tall, Ultron features the same detail and accuracy we’ve come to expect from the Figuarts series. He also looks like he can kick some serious ass but maintains the sleek, fluid look that defines Ultron.
