There are more details of the new LEGO movie tentatively called LEGO: The Piece of Resistance scheduled to be released on February 28, 2014. The movie will be a mix of live action and animated with the majority being CGI.
The search is on for candidates to do voice acting for characters in the movie. Will Arnett, the star of Arrested Development, has been confirmed to voice Batman in the movie, while there is some buzz of Channing Tatum voicing Superman. The lead character named Emmet, voiced by Chris Patt, is “an ordinary, law-abiding, LEGO minifigure who is mistaken for the most extraordinary MasterBuilder. He’s drafted into a fellowship of strangers on a quest to stop an evil tyrant from gluing the universe together.” … Continue Reading

If you’ve seen Michael McCooey’s, aka mmccooey, work before, you’ve probably seen his MOCs of the poseable Batman and Deadpool figures. He has now created The Amazing Spider-man figure and needs your help to reach 10000 supporters on LEGO CUUSOO. Spider-Man is more flexible and agile than Batman and Deadpool so changes were needed:
NEW AND IMPROVED
-He has a ball joint at the base of the neck as well as pivot joint at the base of the skull, allowing him to look all the way down and over his shoulders when contorted.
-A mid-torso joint that allows him to bend his spine forward and back, it also rotates from left to right, like the waist joint.
-His elbows and knees are double jointed, which allows free range of movement and the ability to fully crouch his legs.
-The hips can now allow the legs up and over the wasteline allowing for those very spider-like poses.
-His ankles have a second pivot joint for extra steep ankle poses, as well of full range of motion in the main joint.
-His feet have an articulated toe piece to make those perching poses more natural.
Licensing probably won’t be an issue since there are Spider-man sets coming out next year but that’s a separate issue. This is an amazing figure and I would totally support the project on LEGO CUUSOO and hope you can show your support too!
