I have more than enough to do two lists… possibly even three Here are some of the fandom-related LEGO creations that caught my eye this year at my local LEGO convention, Brickfair VA. Clickity-click the photos for larger versions.

Okay, once again I fail at a Top Ten list and had to go Top Fifteen. I don’t see anyone complaining. There is so much fannish goodness that comes out of somewhere like a LEGO fan convention and so much creativity. I couldn’t help but admire more than just ten! Despite being numbered, these are really in no particular order. Click on the photos for bigger versions, please! These previews are somewhat blurry and don’t do them justice. Seriously, click on them for a proper look. Trust me. Also, the titles are my own in most but not all cases, because I have to call them something and not all the MOC cards came out in my photos.
These are fandom shirts I have purchased from Shirt Woot. I don’t buy a lot from there lately (TeeFury gets most of my business lately, because they email me with their t-shirts daily), but I do have some from this company by various artists. I suspect I will do other posts of this sort in the future. I’ve got a shirt-buying problem. LOL
Batman Beyond: Loved the Neo-Gotham future setting and what has happened to Bruce over the years. I liked how Terry slowly found his way into the role. I liked how the various players like Barbara and the Jokerz (plural) show up. Really liked Bruce’s role, coaching and understanding from afar.
Longmire (Season 2): It’s been a while since I saw Season 1, but I fell right back into it without problem. Love the acting; I watch for the characters and unique cases. Great drama and angsty storylines definitely kept my attention this time around. Definitely looking forward to Season 3.
Ultimate Spider-Man: I’ve always liked Spider-Man, but this month I fell in love with him. This series skewed a little young, but I still enjoyed it. Breaking the 4th wall let Peter’s character shine through. I adored getting to know his team. And I can always use more Agent Coulson.
Beauty & the Beast (Season 1): Interesting modern twists. I enjoyed the protected identity aspect, but the love/passion angle got tiresome. I got a kick out of it when the plotline forced Vincent (the beast) underground into tunnels. I couldn’t take my eyes off Catherine in every scene; she’s gorgeous.
Psych (Season 7): I’ve been waiting forever to get caught up on Psych. The season was highly enjoyable, though it started off surprisingly rocky and tough for my favorite pairings. A great series of cases with plenty of great cultural references thrown in, including Highlander! The musical episode was epic.
A Young Doctor’s Notebook and Other Stories: How did I not know this series existed? Between Daniel Radcliffe as the young doctor and Jon Hamm as the older version, there’s fantastic acting talent. Shocking but well-done humor and drama in these stories set around the time of the Russian Revolution.
Derek: At times, I wasn’t sure how to feel about this series. I can’t help but love Derek as a character, though Ricky’s choice to portray him is interesting. Some of the other characters are harder to love, but even they have their moments. It was worth giving a try.
Young Justice: I am a Marvel girl and know nothing of the Justice league, let alone this spin-off band. But a group of “sidekicks” kicking butt? Irresistible! I love that they all had secrets and problems but functioned as a great team, though reluctantly at times… and luctantly at others.
Thoughts: At first I didn’t see the resemblance and was ready to protest. But once I read the description, it’s actually not too bad of a fit. I rather like this result. I still think I’d make a better Alfred though
For the month of April, I’m breaking out of my usual “format” and showcasing one of my favorite fandoms a day, so I will have shiny things to make me smile every day of my birthday month. When I sat down to write the list of my top 30 fandoms, I found the task terribly hard. How do I choose just 30? My apologies to all my beloved fandoms left off the list. I’m using random.org to determine what fandom gets what day.
