It’s been a little while since TT Games loosed some Lego Marvel Super Heroes video game images or footage online, but the company has more than made up for the dry spell with the latest drop of new screen shots and nearly seven minutes of gameplay footage featuring Iron Man, the Hulk and Spider-Man, squaring off against the Abomination and Sandman in New York City. It seems one of the cosmic bricks from Lego Silver Surfer’s smashed board has fallen into the wrong hands, leading to Sandman and cohorts taking over NYC’s Grand Central Terminal. Fortunately for the minifigs citizens of the LMSH world, Nick Fury is extra good at getting Marvel’s heroes to work together to fight evil and pick up the pieces.
If his Tumblr page is any indication, Iros Yan is a pretty big fan of both the Avengers and the Powerpuff Girls. He’s also fond of combining the two, and a quick look through his Tumblr shows that he’s been creating various comics and illustrations depicting the Avengers in Powerpuff Girls style art for some time. But he may have just outdone himself with a recreation of the Powerpuff Girls opening credits that features Thor, Captain America and Iron Man standing in for Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup.
If you dig Hot Toys but find their 1/6 scale figures a little more suited to Tony Stark’s toy budget than your own, the company’s got a line of Iron Man 3 Cosbaby figures that are priced a little more within everyone’s reach. By the end of April, HT will release eight new 3” figures bearing designs that, as the “Cosbaby” name suggests, basically look like a cosplaying baby. Previous Cosbaby sets grouped a handful of the figures, but the first IM3 Cosbaby series will box Tony Stark and Iron Man suits Mark I-VII into one set, along with a “specially designed Hall of Armor paper backdrop and mini paper stage” to maximize display possibilities.
