Lego (not so) Super Secret Police Enforcer

Oh so sleek a build. Ohhhh yeah. Bow Bow... chicka chicka.
The Lego Movie had an immense amount of sets and an entire minifig series devoted to it when it was released. I got a few sets from the movie here and there, but since storage space is quickly becoming a premium in my studio space, I had opted to pick up harder to find and smaller polybag builds. Don't worry, I've got larger sets in wait, some of them a few years now out of production, and some cool video reviews for those as well in the coming months.

This polybag set, the "Super Secret Police Enforcer", had 10 more pieces available in it, and that made a world of difference in the final build and overall aesthetic for this build. I know that the thing about Lego is multiple usage of common brick elements to create new and unique models, and that is very much the beauty of the simplicity of the LEGO system. That said, I am not a fan of minimalist brick count, just to barely get an idea across in model form. It's probably one of the reasons I so love the larger sets and a lot of the LEGO Ideas concepts.

It was a fun little build, and for those of you wanting to complete your Lego Movie series/sets, this one is a bit harder to find now, but fits in very well with the rest of the sets. The minifig is actually pretty well detailed and comes with a pretty kick ass futuristic pistol.

Buzzards Guts C3-PO Marvel Mashup Figures


Just writing to inform you of the latest bootleg fan art resin toy from buzzard guts and DAMarx toys! It is a Star Wars/Marvel mash-up that uses Kenners 1977 protocol droids as a base for popular Marvel characters. 3.75" resin figures hand cast and hand painted by DAM and mounted on a sturdy 6"x9" cardback with beautiful illustrations by Ryan Winn, one of the creators of Valiant comics. Each card features a homage to classic Marvel comic covers by Jack Kirby, Bob Layton and Todd McFarlane. 

There are 4 figures in the set. The Cybot Avengers features C3-PO as Iron Man and the Captain, while RA-7(death star droid) mutates into Hulk and Spidey. (Star Wars fans might reference Cybot Galactica, the company responsible for manufacturing these protocol droid models.) 

This 1st edition series is limited to 20 figures being 5 of each or 5 sets. Dropping exclusively at Friday February 24th at 7pm eastern standard. 
They are $40 each or $150 for the set. Save $10 when you buy the set."

A little bit about buzzard guts. We produce resin action figures in small run editions. Appropriating factory made production toy parts and assimilating various pop culture icons to create a fan homage or a strange multi-dimensional version of an alternate reality. Sometimes referred to as "bootlegs", these art toys are conceived, hand made and painted by DAM featuring collaborative illustrations by various artist including Neil Devlin of Last Boss Comics, who illustrated packaging art for the Riot Scum series which features various gender bender Star Wars characters in a punk band. The series had exclusive releases through Dke toys at DesignerCon, New York Comic Con and most recently at the Clutter Gallery Inaction Figure 5 exhibition. 

Other past Buzzard Guts collaborators include Moctoys, Randy Walker, Klon Waldrip, Michael Shantz, Scott Stripling, and Reis O'Brien.

Thanks for your time!
