Now I’m going to do something unspeakable in this post. Combine DC and Marvel. I know, I know, it’s wrong, but I’d like to show you all the upcoming sets from both the Marvel and DC lines. DC Comics will be releasing sets based on the Justice League and more, while Marvel is giving us 6 sets devoted to Avengers Age of Ultron (I finally have pics of these). So here they are, I will start with the DC sets.
Lego DC Comics – Brainiac Attack
Priced at $24.99, this will include Superman, an all new Supergirl fig, the Martian Manhunter that was available in a promotional polybag earlier in 2014, and the all new Brainiac.
Lego DC Comics – Green Lantern vs. Sinestro
This set has been long awaited for many superhero fans. Until now, Green Lantern had only been available as an exclusive Comic Con giveaway to a select few. They are selling for outrageous prices on E-bay because there are just so few out there. This set will include 3 all new figures. Green Lantern, Sinestro, and Space Batman from the Batman 3 video game. Price point estimated at $19.99.
Lego DC Comics – Gorilla Grodd Goes Bananas
Personally, this is the set that I am most excited about. I will come with Batman, Flash, Mr. Cold, an all new Wonder Woman that looks way less cartoonish compared to the previous version, and a Gorilla Grodd bigfig which will have printing, it just isn’t shown in this preliminary picture. For those that watch The Flash on CW show, you may realize that Flash, Mr. Cold, and Gorilla Grodd have all been on the show this season. It kind of made me wonder whether or not this was just an accident, or whether they intentionally made that trio from the show. Available for a price tag of $49.99.
Lego DC Comics – Black Manta Deep Sea Strike
An underwater DC set. Very promising. This set will include Batman, Aquaman, an all new Scuba Robin minifigure, and for the first time, Black Manta. It also looks like a shark will appear in the set. $39.99.
Lego DC Comics – Darkseid Invasion
This set looks very cool with 4 new minifigures, a bigfig, and a really great looking ship. Within this box, you will find Superman, the all new Cyborg figure, the new Darkseid bigfig, Hawkman with his awsome wings, and Green Arrow who has only appeared when he was given out to very few people at a Comic Con giveaway. This new version appears to be a downgrade from the Comic Con exclusive version. My only question is where did his hood go? He is definitely known for that hood. All for the price of $59.99
That concludes the DC set releases, now I can move on to the Avengers sets. Yay! So 6 sets are planned from Age of Ultron, with unconfirmed rumors of a 7th. I don’t think we will see a seventh. The pictures come from a preliminary European Lego catalog.These are just preliminary images, and are subject to some changes and improvements.
Lego Avengers Age of Ultron – Iron Man vs. Ultron
This set will include Iron Man (MK-45 suit), Ultron Drone Officer, and 2 Ultron Drones, the second drone is hidden on the wing of the craft, I almost missed that. This looks like your typical “cheapest” set, one main character and some of the “warriors”. They do this so you can build up an army through multiple of these cheap sets.
Lego Avengers Age of Ultron – Duel with Hydra
This looks like it will be a cool scene in the movie itself. A vehicle chase with a what appears to be a dune-buggy seems very promising. The 3 figs will be Thor (looks like a new torso printing), Hydra Henchman, and Hawkeye. It looks like Hawkeye is getting a total makeover compared to his appearance in the original Avengers sets. New hair piece, new torso, but it’s hard to tell whether the head piece is changed.
Lego Avengers Age of Ultron – Hulkblaster Rescue Mission
I was surprised when I first saw this, I was expecting a bigfig for Hulkblaster. It looks like we are getting a brick-built Hulkblaster though, which still looks very cool. The figures look amazing. An all new Hulk bigfig, Ultron Prime, Scarlet Witch, and Hulkblaster (if you consider him a figure). I’m loving the look of the new Hulk, he has that olive green type color that looks much more realistic to the movie.
Lego Avengers Age of Ultron – Burglary at the Hydra Fortress
This one is my personal favorite. It will have Hulk (the same one that’s in the Hulkblaster Recue set), Captain America, Hydra Henchman, Quicksilver, and Baron Von Strucker (aka The Winter soldier). This looks like a great set. It has a Hydra cannon-type vehicle, a great looking gate/building, and the figures are amazing. I’m so glad Lego decided to include the Winter Soldier.
Lego Avengers Age of Ultron – Attack on Avengers Tower
I must admit, this one looks kind of cheesy. Maybe some other minor improvments will be made, but this one might turn out to be my least favorite of the 6 sets. It will include Iron Man (MK-45 suit, same one that’s in Iron vs. Ultron set), Thor (more than likely the same one from Duel w/ Hydra), Ultron, and Iron Legion Drones. Those drones will be what sell if for me. The drones are like Iron Man’s backup army. In Iron Man 3 we saw him signal all his suits to come assist him. I guess now we can assume they will be in Age of Ultron too.
Lego Avengers Age of Ultron – Quinjet Chase
It looks like the Lego Quinjet is getting a total redesign. I like the previous version better, but this one looks great too. It will include Captain America, Iron Man (MK-43 suit), Ultimate Ultron, Vision (an awsome adition to Lego Marvel, and a brand new version of Black Widow. I’m excited about seeing this Black Widow figure in full. It looks like she will be getting a new, more realistic, hairpiece, and probably a new torso printing.
These have got me really excited for the movie now, which hits theaters on May 1st, 2015. So we can conclude that the sets will be released in April.
