About this creation
Aaaand another superhero MOC, this time it’s Spidey again (I am really more of a Marvel guy – especially a Spider-Man guy –, sorry DC). Anyway, first some neutral shots of the whole MOC:








You are probably wondering what this orange tube is about. The fog in the title picture is real, not digital. I bought one of those fog machines (for my next Lovecraft MOC) and wanted to test it.




I was really satisfied. Pressing the machine’s button just a bit results in only a tiny amount of fog that creeps on the cold bricks:




Filling the room with fog, in which I took the photos, resulted in a more atmospheric scenery:








Again I used some custom stickers:






Okay, this sticker was really a bit of work, but since my Spidey-MOCs take place in the “Silver Age of Comic Books” (1956 – 1970), I wanted to use a movie poster from that time period:








I also used different lightning techniques for this MOC. Sad but true I found out that vacuum cleaners are not the only natural enemies of LEGO® bricks. I managed to melt some of my tiles with my flashlight lamp:








This presentation wouldn’t be complete without the comic covers:








I used on of the new waterslide decals (which I tested in my Zombricks MOC ) to create my custom Lizard’s chest. The design is identical to the official one from Killer Crock , but for my Lizard I needed a sand green torso, so I had to make it myself.
His lab coat is also made from an official LEGO® part:








To be honest, I almost lost interest in the superhero theme after my experiences in the superhero contest. But then there was this very friendly and really great guy named Calin , who cheered me up (here’s a photo of us – don’t be fooled by our expression, we really like each other):




He is a fantastic designer and also came up with some great ideas for my custom Green Goblin (yes, I haven’t forgotten him). Thank you, Calin.






Okay, that’s it for now. I’m already working on the next Spidey MOC and my motivation even rose when I saw the second Spider-Man trailer. I wasn’t sure what to think about this early reboot, but the trailer convinced me – although I still think that Frank Dillane would have been the much better choice for Spidey/Peter. Go Frank!
There, I said it!

This is SO awesome! I love it most of all. The shot you've used for the comic cover had me drooling over my keyboard. And that Hitch "The Birds" poster OMG! You are mad with your details! I love it so much and need it! Its right up my alley. If you made that big (I mean real poster size or at the very least A4) and another few Hitch flicks posters too you could sell them. I'd buy them to put on my wall. I kid you not Thor. I'll paypal you the money right now.

The poster is great. It just demonstrates the amount of time and effort you'll expend for the smallest authentic details. The Lizard does look genuinely threatening. Very nice. -Ben

I feared to lose some bricks in that fashion myself, I already damaged a solar panel, so I m more creful now, I love this piece and your ambition to make it looks as pro as possible, it s ...amazing! I also love the inclusion of train elements, we don t get to see much of them in mocs.

Bad to the bone, Xeno! Love it all, but if I had to pick something that really stands out, I'd go with the poster. Beautiful "mixed media" work there with the Lego and the photoshop. Meanwhile, the custom decals, the curved elements, the use of the fog - all just killer work!

Ah, thanks for revealing the smoke and mirrors. I neglected to say "what did you hack up to make the EXCELLENT lab coat" it looks great for a custom, and I think your current take on purism or none is great, similar to Mark Stafford in the excellent use of custom decals to enhance a purist build. Enough of polishing your ego, i'm going to go see if I can remember how to build...

Quoting Stuart Delahay Seeing as I don't have a Bossk fig to look at, i'll ask the seemingly obvious question, how did you mount the head at an angle? And what did you destroy to make the lab coat? Keep up the sterling work mate.
Stu, my man, thank you for your kind words. Well, it could have been better, but I realised it too late and didn't want to tear everything down since I was very close to finish it the moment I noticed. Before I answer you questions, I want to state that I started as a purist in 2009. I changed my mind over the years, but only when it comes to minifigs and/or stickers. I wouldn't modify a brick in order to create a cool window or something. And though the lizard (and my Green Goblin) is heavily modified, I try to reduce it at least to original LEGO parts. So let me answer your second question first: I used a white cloth carousel top section 22 x 18 (http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=85195) in order to make the lab coat. And since I didn't want to damage the Bossk head, I sawed off the torso's neck pin and attached the head with some double-sided adhesive tape to the body.

Really slow on catching up on posts so apologies Thor. I agree with Hans - the movie poster is worth it's own post mate, just superb! Let's not forget the main post though. Don't be down on this vs your sandman build. I know you have very high standards (it's why I always enjoy and value praise from you mate) but I think this is killer in it's own right. The fog is a very cool trick, really looks good, but the construction again is clean and full of neat details like the I-beams/ columns that Blake mentioned. Seeing as I don't have a Bossk fig to look at, i'll ask the seemingly obvious question, how did you mount the head at an angle? And what did you destroy to make the lab coat? Keep up the sterling work mate.

Quoting Hp 107 Very cool. Did you build just a quarter of a train or the whole thing and then take a bit off? Anyway, loving the classic comic-book feel.
Thank you. I didn't build the whole train, just a bit more than you can see. But the rest would have been quite similar.

Quoting Riccardo Zangelmi I dont know why, but something is missing, you seem to have tried to end it quickly, without, your usual keen interest in the details. It looks bare. My, is not intended as a criticism, I hope that you, not you take this the wrong.
You are right, Ric, and thank you for your constructive criticism. Though I was building this MOC and the zombie contest MOC simultaneously, there would have been enough time to finsih this one in peace. I think, it's not rushed or unfinished, but it's wrong in its proportions. The interesting focus lies on the uninteresting part, the departure platform. It's too big, too empty. And I shouldn't have used a standard crocodile. The first Spidey-MOC was better balanced. I'll try harder on the next one (Green Goblin).

Hi Morphy, a new job with superheroes. I read that you lost interest in this subject, and if I may permit, I can notice it in this your creation.

Quoting Baron Von Ben ~ I do have a question though, proly asked many times, but, how do you make the custom movie posters into stickers? Is there some kind of cut-out sticker sheet you print out?
Thank you, Baron. Actually, it is indeed that simple. I bought some very thin white sticker sheets in DIN A4 format (that's the equivalent here in Europe to the US letter format), design enough stickers to fill the page (I don't want to waste any) and print them on a laser printer. Then I cut them out with a metal ruler and a hobby knife - that's more accurate than using scissors.

Thank you, Connor. I'm not much of a photographer - I had to learn it at work, cause there I have to take tons of product pictures. Nevertheless, the cleanliness is a result of a) a good camera, b) a light tent and expensive flashlights and c) a lot of time consuming post production at my computer.
