Incredible Super Hero Lego Displays at Toy Fair 2012
One of the coolest things about attending Toy Fair 2012 is seeing all of the giant displays custom made for the event and you can count on Lego always setting the bar.
Here’s DC’s trinity, Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman sporting their classic looks, not their new “52” threads. These sat at the side of the Lego Booth. Each of these were about five and a half feet tall and were made up of a bajillion Lego pieces. You have to love the detail put in these Lego statues, from Superman’s pose to the curl in his hair. He even has his face scratched up.
Lego also had an equally impressive Hulk display that stood about six feet tall sporting the tan khakis instead of the trademark purple pants. Could this be the look we’ll get for The Avengers movie? Hulk does have the Lego face, and does not look like Mark Ruffalo. Love the expression though and the size of the fists were like two giant bowling balls. They were probably as heavy too.
Now, as impressive as these two displays were, nothing was as monstrous as Saban’s Powers Rangers Super Samurai display with had a statue that was around 15 feet tall. At nearly three times the size of the Lego Hulk display, Saban’s 20th Anniversary mammoth might have just eked out Lego for the biggest jaw-dropping sculpt of Toy Fair 2012.
I’ll say this though, as big as the Super Samurai display was, Lego sculpts will always be stunning when you think about the planning, the manpower, and the extreme level of distinct detail. Whenever I look at these giant sculptures, I could only dream of having that many pieces of one color as a kid, nevertheless that many Legos. These sculpts show that there is a group of people at Lego with one of the greatest jobs ever. Lego Masters have never disappointed whether it’s awesome Star Wars Displays in Legolands around the world or their traveling tours throughout the decades. Lego Masters, we bow in your presence.
