I built the ultimate Darth Vader (where you combine three different sets) one and it’s actually swish on the wall. Don’t think I’ll go down the same route for the Iron Man as it’s a very tedious build.

As for the Map, pointless for me. But I can see travellers will love it.


Just out of interest (as I think I’m definitely going to get one of them, if I get 3 I’d prefer the 3 different Sith rather than a large Vader), what have you got it hung up with? Screwed in picture hooks or the self adhesive ones? I imagine for the 3 piece you’d need the former but I was wondering if I could get away with the latter for displaying them individually? I’ve looked at the Iron Man one as well, the extended one looks amazing but the 3 individual ones not so much to me.

Heavy duty Screws is the way, and you’ll need proper wall screws and stuff as it’s quite heavy.

It have two Lego pieces that you can slot in the back after you finished it. I find it safer to use two more for the ultimate one.

It can be fiddly as you need to measure on the wall accurately, as you may need to drill. As for individual sets, it’s obviously less heavy but you still need heavy duty screws. Filmsy screws wouldn’t do a good job.

Yeah. Something like that but I would hold off until you get the set. The screw holes in the Lego parts used to hang it up are like one stud wide.

Is it wrong that I'm tempted to get the lego typewriter just to see if I can get a few custom Resident Evil minifigs to display with it? :slol:
