SickBricks Heroes vs. Hollywood

As mentioned before, I found a five-pack of SickBrick minifigures at the Goodwill the other day. I never really paid any attention to these guys when they were at retail, but I wish I had, because apparently they produced some fun parody characters!

This set was called Heroes vs. Hollywood because why not? It included this Aquaman parody guy (sorry, I threw away the character sheet so I don't know any official names anymore!)

It also came with a dull blonde pop star type, but if you slap his head on the Notquaman body:

You get a guy who looks a little more like Aquaman. With that costume coloration, he could be a Bizarro Aquaman, I suppose.

The set also came with a Green Lantern parody. He appears to be more of a Green Flashlight. Regardless, I like how each figure comes with a removable accessory which can be placed on either side and interchanged with other minifigures' accessories.

Of course I got the set for Jack Wisecracker (I only remember his name because I wrote it down.) Jack looks like the Joker had a baby with Harley Quinn by way of Aku.

As part of the 'Hollywood' bunch is this Goth guy with an ankh and a Misfits haircut. He's silly but I dig him.

Lastly this goof who would be beyond lame if his head didn't work perfectly for an Aquaman stand-in.

I dug around the internet a little and discovered there was a Batman parody figure called Knight Rat. Sigh, now I need to track that guy down!

  1. Apparently, there is also an Uber Woman, who looks a bit like Power Girl and Shazam had a baby. You need her too.

    Here's a listing for Knight Rat loose:

    You'll probably want to buy him this way, seeing as when he's packaged, he comes with Finley Fisksticker (aka red-headed Aquaman); I don't think you want a second one!

    1. Thanks John! I wish I had paid closer attention when these were clogging the shelves at Target.

  3. These are so fun. Are they still around? I can easily see myself wasting money on them...

    1. Apparently, it's a mobile app. You can find out more at their website (even if they don't have all of their characters listed): http://www.sickbricks.com/.

    2. TSD - II don't know if they are still around. I do know they were at Target, then clearanced at Target, then made their way to Goodwill (who gets Target castoffs.) So they may be done for good.
