Mr. Xenomurphy's Superhero Contest 2013 Round 2

In Round 2, Superheroes bracket, the three builders who advanced from round 1 had to either build a pet for a hero, or make a full comic page.

Dave Kaleta built this great rendition of Bat-Cow (actually from an issue of Batman, btw).

Delatron 3000 built Eddie Brock's fish tank.

But Captain Nemo won with his Flash Turtle.

In the the Sidekicks bracket for Round 1 of Mr. Xenomurphy's Superhero Contest 2013, builders could either create a vig for a battle between their own custom superhero and his arch enemy, or have a supervillain creating a trap for a hero. Here are the top three scorers:

Max Pointner came up with a battle between Mr. Stereotype and the Iron Giant.

Seth Bryan built the Mirror House from Batman, the Black Mirror.

LukeClarenceVan The Revanchist built Hu-Man vs Depression.

Mr. Xenomurphy's Superhero Contest 2013 Round 1

I have been totally neglectful in coverage of Mr. Xenomurphy's Superhero Contest. Contestants were broken up into two categories, Superheroes and Sidekicks. In round 1, the Superheroes were challenged to either come up with a scene depicting a hero or villain as a parent, or showing them in their own childhood. Here are the top three, who moved on to round 2:

Delatron 3000 shows how Kid Joker solves a math problem.

Dave Kaleta's Lost in the Supermarket showed Doc Ock shopping with his daughter.

Captain Nemo's Laughing Together depicts the Joker having some good clean fun with his son.

Hulk building event

This past weekend, a LEGO store in Portland had a Hulk building event.

This was one of those events where participants put together smaller subunits (bricks made of bricks) and then those get put together by the LEGO pros to make the full sculpture. I don't know if they tear these things down right away, or leave them up on display for a while. If you're in Portland, stop by the Washington Square Mall LEGO store and you may see this. Here's the final result. I'm pretty sure the smaller version was made in advance as a template for assembling the big guy.

BTW, it looks like participants got a commemorative Duplo brick.

I don't know the builder, but this mosaic was on display at BrickExpo Canberra.

Stark Tower

OliveSeon is, I believe, a professional builder in Korea, who puts together very large and detailed displays. This movie studio theme park includes a huge rendition of Stark Tower and the wormhole opening up for the Chitauri fleet.
