Lego Black Canary Custom Minifigure

Here is the newest addition to my Lego custom DC Superhero ranks: Black Canary!

Black Canary is made up of the head of Lois Lane (from one of the recent Man of Steel sets), the hair from a blind-bagged mermaid from a couple series back, the torso of Western Wyldstyle from the most recent Lego Movie themed blind-bag series, and some random legs I had lying around (most likely from an old knight themed set.)

Black Canary is a true hodge-podge of parts, but I think she turned out pretty slick! It can be tough coming up with these customs for DC Comics characters, since Lego gives the official ones a Caucasian skin tone, yet most Lego minifigures are yellow skinned. But I'm trying to maintain consistency at least with this bunch, so Lois had to be sacrificed. She was a boring Lois anyways. As for Wyldstyle's torso...well there is some yellow...cleavage...?...but that could just be part of Canary's bustier or something. Regardless, it works for this character so I'm happy with it!

Finally, I gave her the motorcycle that came with the Vampire Hearse set so she can get over to the Lex Luthor melee post haste!

By the way, I saw the Lego Movie with my kids today and thoroughly enjoyed it! They loved it too. I highly recommend you go check it out.
