Marvel Studios’ AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR “Family” featurette and Live LEGO Build

Assault on the Sanctum - Wong Doctor Strange Bruce Banner and Tony Stark

With just a couple of weeks until the release of Marvel Studios’ AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR there are plenty of TV spots showing up but also fun featurettes like the one below. This featurette has some great behind the scenes information about the movie. I love the scenes of the characters working together. Then to have all the actors and actresses talking about working with each other and joking around makes it even better.

Spider-Man Iron-Man Drax Star-Lord Mantis

Seeing the characters in the shot above together is awesome. The three biggest wise-asses in the MCU together in one shot! That is with the exception of Scott Lang, Ant-Man. To see those four guys riffing on each other over and over would be amazing.

Okoye Black Panther Nomad Black Widow White Wolf

One of the biggest set pieces will probably be the battle in Wakanda. This is where we will see so many of the characters working together. We’ll get to see Bucky Barnes, AKA The Winter Soldier who will be called The White Wolf in this movie, using his new vibranium arm. Then we have Steve Rogers, Captain America who will be more like his Nomad persona using a new shield from the people of Wakanda. Black Widow is sporting new tresses and a new look, too. There is just so much awesomeness in these videos that is making it harder and harder for me to contain my excitement.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is out and I’m Building LEGO Sets! The Milano vs The Abilisk

In July of 2014 I had the most amazing trip of my life in Social Media. I got to go to California to see Guardians of the Galaxy and interview the cast. To this day it is my absolute favorite movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Maybe it was interviewing Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista or James Gunn, maybe it was cooking with my good friend Chris Lewis of Dad of Divas and even more great fun things. It was just the most incredible experience and so the Guardians of the Galaxy will always be a part of what I love about the movies. I have been eagerly awaiting the release of GotG Vol. 2. It was released last night and I haven’t seen it yet. I don’t even know when I’m going to get to see it. I hope it is soon.

In the meantime I have been building all my Guardians of the Galaxy LEGO sets. I’ve made some stop motions movies and also some timelapses of the builds. The builds have been fun. I’ve enjoyed building the sets and stop motion shorts. Thinking of something funny each time has been a challenge but also fun to try. I love the humor of the movies and hoped that I made something fun to watch.

Today I built set #76081 which is the Milano vs The Abilisk. This set has Star-Lord, Baby Groot, Gamora, Drax and Nebula. They are cool minifigs. I’ve now done all 3 of the sets and have the whole team and the baddies, but the one figure that is not part of any of the sets is Ego. I’m hoping that another set is going to come out later, maybe because it contains a spoiler. I’m not sure. I still want a Kurt Russell Minifig.

I tried something different with the timelapse today. I hope that you enjoy it. No time for stop motion, though.
