Brickbaron’s Motorized Joker Funhouse Sets The Bar For The Best Lego Creation Of The Year

Brickbaron's Joker Funhouse model

A year or two ago, LEGO's DC Superheroes line released a set called "Dynamic Duo Funhouse Escape." At the time, I thought it was pretty awesome -- It had minifigs for Batman, Robin, the Joker and Harley Quinn, an appropriately creepy setup for a villainous hideout, and even a little roller coaster car that traveled through it on tracks. It was neat. And then Brickbaron came along and basically made it look like baby school with his version of the Joker's funhouse, complete with carnival rides, deathtraps and puzzles, all of which are motorized to put the whole thing in motion.

It's quite possibly the coolest LEGO build I've ever seen. Check it out in full video, complete with sound effects for Batman's eternal spin-kick, below!

Perhaps best of all, though, is the reveal of LEGO MODOK. Take a look after the jump.

Xenomurphy’s LEGO Arkham Asylum Is The Raddest Thing You’ll See Today

I don't think I'm blowing anyone's mind here when I say that Arkham Asylum has more personality than any other building in comics. Heck, it's got more personality than a lot of characters. I can't think of any comics or video games named after, say, The Daily Planet Building or even Avengers Mansion, but something about Arkham keeps drawing people back to obsessing over it. My guess is that it's the interior gargoyles.

What will blow your mind, though, is a LEGO creation built over the course of a year by Thornsten Bosch, alias Xenomurphy, depicting a mass breakout at the Elizabeth Arkham Asylum for the Criminally Insane. It's one of the most beautifully crafted, painstakingly detailed and flat-out massive LEGO sets I've ever seen, based loosely on Chicago's Tribune Building. Check out some amazing shots below!
