What If?… Superheroes had nothing to do?

Superheroes are pretty busy people. They’re generally responsible for fighting evil, saving planets, and keeping the peace. When they’re not defending the universe they’re probably doing physical training, learning how to use the latest tech, or off on a team-building ‘Away Day’. But what if they didn’t have any bad guys to beat up? There were no androids, aliens, or wizards to defeat?

What if they could just get on with the things that they want to do?

Captain Peggy Carter

Captain “Peggy” Carter was a keen baker and being a typical Brit, she loved having a brew. The thing she dreamt of most when she was off fighting HYDRA? Sitting down in a fancy hotel and having a traditional ‘English Afternoon Tea’.
A pot of the finest Earl Grey tea.
Little cucumber and smoked salmon finger sandwiches.
As many cakes and pastries as she could eat.

Sam “Falcon” Wilson

Sam “Falcon” Wilson had always loved birds of prey. Whenever he had the chance he would go down to the local owl sanctuary and look at the birds. And when he finally had the chance he decided to take up falconry, learning how to train these magnificent creatures to fly and hunt at his command. As is usual he started with smaller owls and hawks, before moving onto some rather more exotic birds. But quickly enough he became good enough to be able to fly eagles, which really turned him into a true All-American Hero!

James “Bucky” Barnes

Despite James “Bucky” Barnes’ often steely-faced persona, he actually had a surprising flair…for fashion. In particular, he loved his knitwear; he was the Winter Soldier after all, and that metal arm of his could get really cold if he didn’t wrap up warm! Taking inspiration from recent makeover TV shows he loved trying on different looks and getting his hair done.

When Duty Calls

But when they were called upon, Captain Carter, Falcon, and Bucky were always there to help. Together they felt duty-bound to care for the people of their own Earth, and any other planet should they be needed. And with their shields at their sides, they were carrying on Steve Rogers’ legacy, protecting life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

Editors Note

We continue our creative reviews of the blue carpet series, and this time it was Stacy who took us back into lazy Saturdays. Thanks for sharing with us what superheroes do on their day off.

Feature Fubiken

It is Friday again.
A workweek has flown by, and we are getting ready to dive in the weekend. But before that, we do want to look back at putting the feature spotlight on one of you.
As we said last week we are picking up Feature Friday and look in our circles of old and new friends alike. And this week we are actually looking back at an old friend. A friend we first bumped into in the Stockholm Toy Safari in 2015 and have then continued to meet in a variety of toy photography safaris around the world, including Denmark and France.

PETS, PETS, PETS!

During summer, LEGO gave Stuck in Plastic the chance to review some of the new Brickheadz sets and create some photoshoots for their SoMe channels. That was all we knew. And I was hesitant to take on the challenge as I haven’t had any experience with Brickheadz. But I decided to take the opportunity to build and shoot something different! After a quick chat with Jennifer, she felt the same and we both took on this fun challenge. Jennifer and I met virtually during the Stuck in Plastic Spring Workshop and shortly afterward, we were both asked to become Close Friends over at SiP so it felt right to take on this challenge together (carefully calculated by Boris, we are sure of it :D )

And let’s face it, who wouldn’t be excited about receiving parcels from LEGO!
Before long, a delivery from Billund had arrived on our doorsteps containing 3 of the Brickheadz Pets sets.
