Lego Creation: Avengers Props


The God

The God

"Norse God of Thunder! Legendary warrior born! He is the Son of Asgard, the Mighty Thor!

Growing up, Thor was my favourite Avenger and I had a ton of old issues. I was and still am a big fan of mythologies, so Thor had the great quality of taking the old and mixing it up in that crazy comic book/soap opera sort of way. What always appealed to me about the avengers was that it was basically a big team of nerds, being mostly scientists who were dealing the best they could with their blessings or curses. Even in the Ultimate Universe Thor's character changes are the least annoying. My childhood love of those comics is the reason my son's name is Odin.

Because these will be displayed at my local comic shop for FCBD I needed an actual display, so I threw this together to store Mjolnir safely and securely. It even has room to sit the wrist gauntlet for display as well."


The Archer

The Archer

""I've never seen you miss... I don't expect you to start now." - Captain America

Clinton Barton was a former circus worker and criminal turned hero, who received his archery skills as a young boy through training with Swordsman and Trickshot. Barton would eventually join both the East Coast and West Coast branches of The Avengers, even leading at one time.

Since I have all of a dozen purple parts in multiple shades, I had no choice but to skip Hawkeye's mask and move on to building a functional bow and arrows. What can I say, I like a challenge."

The Soldier

"In World War II patriotic solider Steve Rogers recipient of the "Super Soldier Serum" became the living symbol of freedom, Captain America. Left for dead while frozen in ice, the star-spangled hero with an indestructible shield awoke years later to continue his never-ending battle for liberty.

I chose a Bucky Barnes costume for a few reasons and the most important one is that I think very few people deserve to be associated with one of the comic industries most honorable characters, Steve Rogers.

Whoever wields it, Cap's shield is a fromidable weapon of defense and offense. I built it to very specific dimensions taken from Marvel's comics and inside info on the actual prop used in the movie. It is heavy, but no heavier than the actual shield would be and the handles on the back rely on brown technic parts and are very sturdy."

Captain America

The Spy

The Spy

"One of the world's greatest spies and master of disguise, she's the legendary scarlet-haired NATASHA ROMANOVA, the BLACK WIDOW

We ordered a stretchy catsuit to be modified for some upcoming costumes at our local convention in November and it arrived a couple of days before I finished the Widow's accessories, so my wife threw this together in a couple of minutes and we did a couple of quick shots. It was cold out, but she's a trooper!

There's a very good chance these will end up as actual costumes we wear to the convention, so we plan on doing some more action shots down the road."
