What started as a happy accident quickly became a collection of related builds. I Initially only planned on a Flash vs. Reverse Flash scene, and while scrounging for trans-red and yellow pieces for speed blurs- I came across an old X-Pod! (For reference, here’s the Bricklink Catalog Entry.)
Already I was hooked. being primarily a Marvel fan I started looking up info about other JLA Members I could get a hold of, and eventually (with help from my friends Seth and Sawyer), made a theme out of this, making 9 vignettes with all 8 X-Pod colors and even some of the lids (which I was VERY fortunate to get all of as a kid)!
Below I’ve included larger images of each 10x10, I wanted to have a main photo out in the open and several close-ups and detail shots in a “summary” tab, but it seems that isn’t working- any help there? Also, please pardon the DIY Paper Backdrop
“Not So Terrific In Central City”
Featuring Flash and Reverse Flash in mid battle, along with Michael Holt looking on from his apartment’s window (look it up )
“John Stewart versus the Sinestro Corps”
Meant to be a face-off in the ruins of some now-barren alien planet, and the satelite was just for fun
“The First Stage of Grief is… Turning Back Time?”
A recreation of the classic movie, Superman, this one is more of a 10x10 Block to show off the 4x4 Lego ball I made that’s… less than wholly accurate to the source material (earth)
Illegally detaining your villains? …Maybe… But I’m Batman sooooo…
“Call Me Useless Will You?!”
Aquaman overcompensating- as usual. (Personally I think Aquaman is actually really cool but to each their own…). Wave design a last minute change- MUCH for the better imo.
It’d seem Brainiac has located Kal’s Fortress of Solitude, good thing Kara’s still around to defend! Includes Brainiac (with a motherbox opening his Boom Tube) and one Brain-Bot Drone
“WatchTower Central Computer”
Mostly just a few staircases and a catwalk, this build is focused on using the X-Pod piece as a Holographic Projection of whatever the League is attempting to track down at the moment, featuring several key Leaguers in intense discussion. The computer screen was done using a few stickers from the Avengers and Galaxy Squad!
“F O U R T Y C A K E S”
When nobody was looking… Lex Luthor stole 40 cakes. FOURTY CAKES! That’s as many as four tens! And that’s just terrible.
(Just one photo- if you don’t get this one, see here )
