Minifigs get superpowers thanks to artist Ulises Farinas’ LEGO Superheroes; he’s only done two pieces (DC-themed Rise and Lego my Marvel), but they’re absolutely marvel-ous.

Mech Test Tony Stark

Mech Test Tony Stark

We’re fans of the fully-suited Iron Man collectibles, but we like how this Mech Test Tony Stark figure bares it all; Robert Downey, Jr. floats 12″ tall alongside a platform and robotic arm.
