Now I remember that big-deal comic book story that happened yesterday. I’ll be shocked if you haven’t heard about it by now, but not everyone can be the sharpest apple in the knife barrel like I am. Here’s a link to the news story:

Batman Defeated by Joker – Seven Decades of Superheroing Come to End


When the jackassery of comics has me questioning my faith in (un)funny books, I start to reminisce of those weird days when superheroes were all about the joy and the happy and the fun. But you know what’s always fun? LEGO.

Lego - old-style comic minifigs 01

Except for Cap’s motorcycle and shield, those aren’t my originals. They’re mostly from Bricklink purchases that I’ve been making since the Lego Batman line inspired me to rebuild my Lego collection. Luckily, I still have some of my original Legos since both that shield and that motorcycle aren’t that cheap any more. But I’m slowly building a little army of custom figures. Why? Because there’s something fun about it. I’ll have more pics and posts about this at a later date.

Lego - Aquaman jetboat

Here’s a bonus pic of how Aquaman’s jet boat (based on Killer Croc’s mini prop boat) is coming along.
