More In Depth Look at Superheroes 2016!

Lego Iron Man MK33 Polybag

Here’s a list of what’s in store for both superhero lines for the finish of 2015 and into 2016.

Marvel –

Marvel Avengers Videogame – Pre-order includes Iron Man MK33 polybag

Racer 1 – Captain America, Red Skull
Racer 2 – Spiderman, Green Goblin
Racer 3 – Hulk, Ultron
Avengers Space Mission – Captain America (Space suit), Captain Marvel, Hyperion, Iron Man (Space Suit), Thanos bigfig!
Iron Skull Submarine Attack – Iron Skull, Captain America, Iron Man (Scuba Suit), Hydra Henchman
3 Captain America Civil War sets – Black Panther, Captain America, Crossbones, Falcon, Iron Man, Scarlet Witch, Black Widow, The Winter Soldier, Ant-Man.

DC Comics –

Racer 1 – Bane, Robin
Racer 2 – Batman, Joker
Racer 3 – Captain Cold, Flash
Racer 4? – Catwoman, ?
Gotham City Cycle Chase – Batman, Firefly, Harley Quinn
Batman Classic TV Series Batcave
3 Batman vs. Superman

I’m super excited for the Classic Batcave set. I’m sure it will be super popular and sell out fast when it does hit shelves. Fans have also been asking for a remake of set 7886 Harley Quinn’s Hammer Truck from the original Batman theme. Maybe we will finally be getting something like that with the Gotham City Cycle Chase set! As for Marvel, they are starting to give us more of what we actually want to see. I’m super pumped that Red Skull is making a return considering he’s one of my favorite villians. Along with new versions of Captain America and Iron Man it’s shaping up to be a great new line.

First Look at 2016 Lego Waves

As the 2015 Lego season winds down, fans are looking towards 2016 to see what new sets Lego will be producing. This post will focus on what will be coming out of the Star Wars, Marvel, and DC lines next year.

Lego Batman vs. Superman

DC Superheroes –

1 – 3 sets based on the Batman vs. Superman movie

You can see part of one of the sets in the above picture. This is our only look at the Batman vs. Superman sets at this time. We will likely see more than just 3 sets in the wave, but for now this is all we know of.

Marvel – 

1 – Set or sets based off Captain America: Civil War

2 – Set or sets based off the upcoming Avengers Ultron Revolution animated series

3 – Juniors set featuring Iron Man and Loki

I’m curious to see if we will get a new version of Loki. I thought we were done with new versions of him since they’ve basically moved past him in the movies. I’m also super pumped for the Captain America:Civil War sets considering The Cap is one of my favorite heroes.

Star Wars –

The following sets will be focused on the upcoming Star Wars wave. Rumor has it they could be coming out in Decmeber 18th, 2015, but they will still be the sets that normally fill the January slot so i’ll consider them 2016 sets.

1 – Unnamed The Force Awakens Microfighter (The Force Awakens)

2 –  Another Unnamed Microfighter (The Force Awakens)

3 – Unnamed Battle Pack featuring the Hero side (The Force Awakens)

4 – Unnamed Battle Pack featuring the Villain side (The Force Awakens)

5 – Battle on Takodana (The Force Awakens)

6 – The Pirate Transport (The Force Awakens)

7 – Hoth Attack (The Empire Strikes Back)

8 – Bespin Carbon Freezing Chamber (The Empire Strikes Back)

9 – Droid Escape Pod (Unclear Movie Origins)

10 – Obi-Wan’s Jedi Interceptor (Revenge of the Sith)

11 – 4 Unnamed Microfighters based on Star Wars Rebels

12 – 2 Battle Packs based on the Star Wars Battlefront videogame

That’s all we know for now. But it looks like it’s going to be a great wave. I’m especially excited to get something from Bespin. Looks like there will be less focus on the original 6 movies in this wave.

This preliminary list is all we have for now. Hopefully we will be getting some pics or more detailed lists soon.


					

SDCC 2015 Excluisve Sets

The San Diego Comic Con brings us new exclusive sets every year. This year, Lego will be releasing tons of brand-new sets and minifigures. The SDCC exclusives are always highly collectible and sell for very high prices to those who manage to get them. Without further ado, here are the sets and figs we will see coming out the event this year.

Star Wars – Dagobah Mini-build 

This set is based on the original trilogy scenes where Luke visits Yoda. It includes an R2-D2 fig.

SDCC 2015 Exclusive Star Wars Set

Marvel Superheroes – Throne of Ultron

This set coresponds with the Avengers: Age of Ultron movie and includes the most minifigures in the lineup.

SDCC 2015 Exclusive Marvel Set

Marvel Superheroes – All New Captain America

This fig is brand-new and exclusive. It is only seen in the comics and hasn’t made a movie appearance yet. This is the second exclusive version of Captain America we’ve seen from SDCC so far.

SDCC 2015 Exclusive Marvel Minifigure

DC Superheroes – Action Comics #1 Superman

This set depicts a classic scene from the DC Comic Universe. It includes a non-exclusive Superman fig.

SDCC 2015 Exclusive DC Comics Set

DC Superheroes – Arsenal

This is the one I like the most of the lineup. It’s exclusive and we’ve never seen any other version of him. I do hope to see him in a set that is available to the general public some day though. Arsenal (Roy Harper) can be seen not only in the comics, but as a prominent character in the Arrow TV show on the CW Network.

SDCC 2015 Exclusive DC Comics Minifigure

That’s the lineup this year. What do you think of the figs and sets? Will you be attending SDCC 2015? Sound off in the comments below!

Upcoming Exclusive Superhero Figs

Lego will be releasing a couple of brand new exclusive minifigures later this year. The first is a new version of Iron Man. This MK33 (Silver Centurion) minifigure will be available when you pre-order the upcoming Lego Marvel Avengers videogame.

Lego Iron Man MK33

This looks like the most detailed version of Iron Man we have ever seen. With the arm printing and printing on the side of the legs. Not to mention the chest armor piece.

We will also be seeing the Trickster make his way into the Lego Superhero universe. Makes you wonder who he had to trick to get his own fig. 🙂 Anyways, he looks like a very detailed minifigure also. We will be getting him free in the upcoming Lego DC Movie entitled Justice League: Attack of the Legion of Doom.

That’s all for now. What do you think of the upcoming minfigures? Will you be picking up one or both of them? Sound off below!

Lego Winter Soldier Poly Finally Coming to the US

It has officially been announced that the highly suaght-after Winter Soldier polybag will finally be available to the general public. Previously, the only way to get the poly was to buy the Helicarrier set. With a $350 price tag many people weren’t able to buy the set and therefore couldn’t get the Winter Soldier poly. Personally, I am a huge Captain America fan so I am very excited to be able to get him free with a purchase. This promotion will go on from June 1st – 30th considering supplies last.

LEGO Winter Soldier Promotion

All that is required to get the free minfiigure is to spend $75 or more at a Lego Store or online at http://shop.lego.com/en-US/. As for the figure itself, he is highly detailed. He has a printed arm and a double sided face. Not to mention the awesome looking torso printing on the front and back. This promotion doesn’t require you to buy a Marvel superheroes set to get the fig. You can purchase any Lego items adding up to $75 or more to get the freebie.

That’s all for now. What do you think of this fig? Will you be purchasing $75 worth of stuff to get him free? Or do you already have him from ordering the Helicarrier? Sound off in the comments below!

New 2015 Marvel Polybags Revealed!

A brand new Lego Marvel Superheroes polybag has surfaced this week. This spiderman themed set includes the new super-jumper piece, making it the cheapest set to ever have one included. The set appears to include a spider-like droid that will battle with the spiderman minifigure that you’ll find within the bag. No word on when or where it will be released. Here is the image of the upcoming set.

Lego Marvel Spiderman 2015 polybag

More information has also been released on the Electro polybag. We have had images of this since last year and no one seemed to know when or where it would be released. This week, Toys R Us added it to their files and priced it at $3.99. This does not mean that it’s available for sale!! It just simply tells us that it will be available for a promotion at Toys R Us online and in stores. Lego did this with the Rocket Racoon polybag in 2014. Here is an image of the upcoming fig.

Lego 2015 Exclusive Sets List

Lego Exclusives Banner 2015

Lego will surely have another big year with exclusive sets (aka the ones that will cost you an arm and a leg but be totally worth it in all their awsomeness). So far in 2015, Lego has released the USC Star Wars Slave I and the Detectives Office modular building. Here is a list of what is rumored to be coming out throughout this year. Note that some of these will surely be available to VIP members before the specified month.

March – Marvel Superheroes Helicarrier (see my post about it here https://connorslegoblog.wordpress.com/2015/01/29/lego-avengers-helicarrier-revealed/)

May –  Simpsons Kwik-E-Mart and USC Star Wars TIE Fighter (Assumed to be released on May the 4th)

June – Creator Ferris Wheel

July – Ferrari F40

September – Ninjago Temple

October  – USC Star Wars Hoth Echo Base and the next Winter Village set

I’m most excited about the Hoth Base personally. I collect the Hoth sets and this one will surely put me back a good chunk of change. I just hope they include some new elements that weren’t in the previous version 7879 Hoth Echo Base.
