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 –

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!

DC Comics –

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.

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.

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 Avengers Helicarrier Revealed!

Lego has finally revealed it’s official images of the newest Marvel’s The Avengers set, The SHEILD Helicarrier. This set was been rumored for over a year, and has finally been officially confirmed. The set will include a hefty 2996 pieces at a price point of $349.99. Meaning I will more than likely miss out on this one unless I win the lottery. 🙂 Here are the pictures we have all been waiting for!

Lego Avengers Helicarrier 3

This will be our first time seeing Maria Hill in Lego form. We also get a brand new version of Nick Fury. As for Hawkey, Black Widow, and Captain America, the changes seem somewhat subtle. We have seen them all multiple times before. I am loving that display stand though, it looks great and very SHEILD’y. Yes, I just turned SHELD into an adjective. 😛

The fact that this is micro-scale is very disappointing. I realize that it would be nearly impossible to make this minifigure scale and be at a reasonable price, but I would have liked to see Lego work something out to fit the minifigures inside the ship, regardless of how tight they fit. It also seems a bit overpriced. At 3000 pieces, I would have liked to see a $300 price tag. Lego did a similar thing with the Star Wars Ewok Village, which had 2000 pieces and a price of $250. I have to give Lego credit though, they did an awsome job with the ship itself. It looks absolutely amazing! I love the way they made the runways and the engine fans are spot on. There is actually a play feature in there that allows you to turn those fans all at once.

That’s all for now. That is until the next Marvel set…

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.

The new Marvel’s Avengers – Age of Ultron trailer is out. Here is a link to watch the epic new video.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tmeOjFno6Do

Lego plans on making 5-6 sets based on the movie. Here is a very preliminary list of the rumored sets:

Avengers – Iron Man

Avengers – Thor Offroader

Avengers – Hulk/Scarlet Witch

Avengers – Spaceship/Captain America

Avengers – Tower

Avengers – Fortress

It may not be very clear, but it gives you somewhat of an idea of what to expect when the sets are released in early summer of next year.
