Lego's Comic Con display pieces

As well as sets you can buy, Lego are also showing of lots of different display pieces at the San Diego Comic Con this week.

First up, and perhaps the most impressive build, is Smaug, the dragon from The Hobbit, which took more than eighty-three-thousand bricks to complete, and comes complete with a little Bilbo Baggins (via When Nerds Attack):


Less of a giant, but coming at life-size, is Chopper, the new droid from the Star Wars animated series, Rebels (via MTV):


Continue after the jump for many more builds, including more Star Wars, Super Heroes, Ninja Turtles, and Ghostbusters:

To mark the fifteenth anniversary of Lego Star Wars, there's a display of the six-hundred plus minifigures that have appeared in the set over the years. All framed by giant lightsabers. (via StarWars.com):


There's a huge (seven feet tall) sculpture of Groot and Rocket Raccoon, from Guardians of the Galaxy (via Wall Street Journal, and Awesome Toy Blog):


To mark the seventy-fifth anniversary of Batman, they have built a batcycle and side-car (via FBTB):


Another giant comes in the form of The Lego Movie's Lord Business, who's using his stilts to make himself eight feet tall! (via FBTB):


There's a Spiderman sculpture, complete with a bit of wall (also via FBTB):


From Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles there's life-sized Shredder (that's another seven footer) will be on display (vis IGN):

Finally, in a cruel twist of scaling irony, there's the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man from Ghostbusters, which is just twenty-five inches tall. This one I find most intriguing though; is the choice to do a Ghostbusters build purely in support of the existing ECTO-1 set, or indicative of a larger commitment to the brand on the way, I wonder? (via FBTB):
