Welcome To The Savage Land . "You know this is where super heroes go to get eaten by Dinosaurs, right?" -Deadpool .
So this MOC was inspired by the various times the X-men have been to the Savage Land in the comics, I guess more specifically it's inspired by New Avengers #5 where Wolverine is basically doing exactly what he is here, running from Dinosaurs
New Avengers is a great run by the way! Would totally recommend.
So Ant Man and The Wasp is out very soon, that one sorta snuck up on me, I saw The Incredibles 2 last night and suddenly realised just how soon it was :P Hype!
The Incredibles 2 is amazing by the way! So glad I finally got to see what happened Post Incredibles 1. I always wanted to know as a kid.
I'm yet to see Jurassic World 2, I'm excited to though
Part of me is keen because Dinosaurs... the other part of me is keen because Chris Pratt. If you haven't seen him playing with his Lego Figs on Instagram, it's a real treat!
As I write this I'm re-watching Rebels again for, probably the like 8th time. Still awesome! I have to say though I think season 2 may still be my favourite of the seasons.
I only recently realised Dave Filoni voices an AT-AT Pilot in the show, that made me so happy to read that, they're his favourite Stormtrooper, I can just see him grinning like a child knowing he got to do that :P
Ahhh classic Ben, talking about Star Wars in a Marvel MOC... well that'll probably continue
I still have my Battle of New York Diorama to post, which is a bit tough to photograph, but I'll post it when I can. In the mean time I have lots more Star Wars stuff ready to be posted.
I think landscapes, specifically jungle stuff, is one of the things I love building the most in Lego.
So Star Wars Resistance comes out in Fall... man wonder when we'll start getting more news about that. Maybe SDCC?
Have we seen the SDCC exclusive Super Hero figs yet? I can't say I've seen them. I wonder who we'll get?
Man I really wanna go to SDCC or Star Wars Celebrations one year, that'll be hella fun!
I doubt we'll see The Savage Land in the MCU btw... it's a very absurd concept, might be a bit much. I'd love to see it there one day though. But you know... Dinosaurs... In Antarctica :P
Slightly unrelated, but don't forget Bionicle Fans, there are a bunch of Bionicle Inspiration Series Episodes covering the Bio-Cup out now on YouTube :)
Speaking of Bionicle, I will have a couple more up soon ;)
Fourth Wall Commentary:
So the Savage Land http://marvel.wikia.com/wiki/Savage_Land is a place in Marvel Comics where Dinosaurs still roam. It's located in Antarctica and most people don't know about it... except Super Heroes and SHIELD. So no I haven't just smooshed Jurassic Park and Marvel into one MOC... well maybe I have to a degree, but it is inspired by comics.
I love the new Lego Dinosaurs and I really wanted to grab one and see what I could do with it. That and Wolverine is cool!
Couple final things:
