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.

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.

Lego Avengers Age of Ultron – Official Box Images

The new Avengers movies will soon be upon on. The Lego sets will be upon us even sooner. Lego has released the official images of the sets. Here they are!

76029 – Iron Man vs. UItron

Lego Avengers Box 1

76030 – Avengers Hydra Showdown

Lego Avengers Box 2

76031 – The Hulkblaster Smash

Lego Avengers Box 5

76038 – Attack on Avengers Tower

Lego Avengers Box 4

76032 – Avengers Quintjet City Chase

Lego Avengers Box 3

No official images have been offered of the last set, 76041 Attack on Hydra Fortress. This more than likely means that the set will be a “Hard to Find” set. It may even be a store exclusive. In the past, certain sets have only been available from Lego and a specific store like Toys R Us, Target, etc. Thanks for reading, I’m looking forward to these sets and the movie in May.

Lego Marvel USC Helicarrier and New Avengers Set Details

So to start with, Lego Marvel Superheroes fans, like myself, are all going crazy this week. An Ulitmate Collectors Series (USC) Helicarrier has been officially confirmed and is said to be released next year. We can assume that the set will include at least 2000 pieces, multiple new minifigures, and a price point of, at the very least, $199.99. But more than likely it will be $299.99 or even $349.99. In the recent Lego Official video presentation for the new Detective Office modular building, Lego gave us the subtle hint that confirmed the rumors that have been circulating for the past year now. In the “Design” screen that is in all these type of videos, Lego showed us what appears to be the Helicarrier and a mini quinjet. Here is a picture, look in the G 🙂


Lego Avengers Age of Ultron set details (the figs listed are not all that will be in the sets, there will surely be more than those listed) –

Iron vs. Ultron – #76029 – 90 pieces – $12.99 to $14.99 – Iron Man, Ultron

Avengers Hydra Showdown – #76030 – 220 pieces – $19.99 to $24.99 – Thor, Hawkeye

The Hulkbuster Smash – #76031 – 248 pieces – $24.99 to $34.99 – Iron Man, Hulk, Black Widow

The Avengers Quinjet City Chase – #76032 – 722 pieces – $69.99 to $89.99 – Captain America

Attack on Avengers Tower – #76038 – 511 pieces – $49.99 to $69.99 – Iron Man, Thor, Ultron

Capture 2

My thoughts on these are both excitement and confusion. I’ll start with the first set, Iron vs. Ultron, I don’t think that name will stick, it will probably be Iron Man vs. Ultron. Also it seems strange to get the main villain in the cheapest set, but I’m not complaining. 🙂 The Hydra Showdown set looks promising, I’m a fan of anything Hydra or Captain America. It feels like Captain America should be in this set considering Hydra is highly connected to the Captain. The Hulkblaster Showdown seems a bit out of place. Another 200 piece-range set? Although it will be nice to get a Hulk figure for under $50.  The Quinjet City Battle is probably the most surprising to me, a quinjet set was released in the original Avengers sets so I didn’t ever think there would be a second one in this set wave. And finally, Avengers Tower. This one might be an “exclusive” type set, like the ones that are available only at Toys R Us, or only at Target, etc. I think this because if the set numbers are right, this set is the only one that doesn’t go in order. Note that it is 76038, while all the rest are in numerical order between 76029 and 76032. It’s also different to see Iron Man in a third set, usually Lego doesn’t like to do more than 2 sets in a wave with duplicate figures, but maybe this is an exception. There is also the possibility that the 3rd Iron Man fig could be a different suit like the Iron Patriot minifigure or even an Iron Mech macro-figure.

We can safely assume that we will be seeing Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch, and maybe even The Winter Soldier minifigures. There are also rumors of a 6th set, #76041, but no details have been released as of yet. From the list above, I can tell this is going to be one of the best Marvel waves to date, and my wallet might suffer severely.
