I Want That: Lego Man of Steel Set

Jan. 31, 2013by: Niki Stephens

Okay, so I might really, really love Lego sets. I know that most of my "I Want That" posts are mainly about Legos, but the sets that they are coming out with these days are so awesome. I actually got one of the TMNT ones with Mikey and Kraang. It turned out to be more awesome than I had expected.

This week's set is for MAN OF STEEL. Set 76002 Supermans Metropolis Showdown comes with two minifigs-- YES-- two minifigs. You get Supes and Zod, what looks to be a radio tower, and for some odd reason a car. Why would either character? Is it a taxi? Do they just throw it at one another? SO MANY QUESTIONS. Apparently this is the smallest set for the MAN OF STEEL series. Ooooooo, which set will be the biggest? THE FORTRESS OF SOLITUDE???

I don't have a release date for the set, but if they dish out info on other sets I might have something then. Make sure to check back!

They come out looking Soooo cheeesy for gods sake!! RIGHT? Spiderman with yellow eyes, ROFLOL!! C"mon really? just please market them just like they would look coming from the comic books and say its from the movie! Superman may not be that bad but its seriously not needed. My Superman when not in the

Can't wait until they reveal more of the sets, I'd really love to see what the Fortress of Solitude will look like in the film itself and in LEGO form! Great that you love LEGO Niki - I think it's something you can never really outgrow. I'm also really looking forward to grabbing the Mattel Movie Masters figures, this picture of the Superman figure looks darn near perfect: [link] ">

What they don't tell you is that they actually shrunk down Henry Cavill and cloned him. That's why it looks so perfect. ;)

What's funny is that Lego started to get more of my attention as I got older. I always had big clunky building blocks as a kid, but never anything as cool as what's coming out these days. I've even taken a trip to LegoLand. You should see the crazy stuff they've built there.

And while they're at it, I'd like a shrunk-down clone of Amy Adams too!

Yeah, LEGO has been getting some pretty cool licenses as of late (beginning with Star Wars, and now both Marvel and DC) and has innovated new and interesting building techniques that are a far cry from the clunky blocks of yore, but are still compatible with them. Legoland is really cool, there is some crazy stuff indeed - like that life-sized Volvo built entirely from LEGO bricks. It's also fun to check out MOCs (my

It's also fun to check out MOCs (my own creations) built by various LEGO fans, some folks have tons of dedication (and spare cash) to channel into amazing custom LEGO builds!

The MOC's are some of the coolest shit I've seen. Did you check out the Back to the Future one I posted? Someone created the entire clocktower with accompanying town. Seriously frakking awesome! I'd like to get my hands on some of The Hobbit sets. They actually did a life-size version of Bag End: [link]0

I want to live inside that thing.
