Look! Up in the Sky! It's a Bird! It's a Plane! It's LEGO Superman!
As you may have already noticed, we are big fans of Nathan Sawaya. So his latest creations have sent us into geek overload. LEGOs and comic book superheros?! I mean come on! Superhero icons – Superman, and of course the now infamous Green Lantern have been been turned into LEGO brick scupltures. With the same amount of detail that went into Patience and Fortitude, Superman and the Green Lantern never looked so life-like. It looks as if Superman’s cape is billowing during lift-off. The details for both scultupters are amazing, and you’ll also appreciate the perfectly colored bricks for both heroes.
So why did Sawaya go to the effort of making a Superman LEGO sculpture? Well last year he was commissioned to make a LEGO creation for the Hero Complex Film Festival – and looking at this year’s attendees, Richard Donner, the man behind the original 1978 Superman movie, was honored at the fest this year. So of course what would a brickartist do? Make a sculpture of Superman of course to honor Donner, and throw in a Green Lantern for good measure.
