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 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!

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 Superheroes 2015

A lot will be in store for the Lego superhero ranges this year. Lego DC Comics will be releasing sets based around the Batman universe and more. For now we only have 2 set names/numbers.

– 76034 Batboat Harbor Pursuit

-76035 Jokerland

Both of these titles sound great. Lego hasn’t released anything in the way of Batman watercraft since the Hunt for Killer Croc set in 2006. Could this mean that we will finally be getting a new Killer Croc minifigure?  It will be great to see if this Batman Harbor set will go along well with the Jokerland set. Jokerland is something I have been wanting to see out of Lego DC for a long time. Hopefully we can get a new Joker fig with some leg printing and more detailed face/torso. As for other DC figures that may or may not be in these 2 sets, there are rumors of a Beastboy fig being in one set. Others talk of Starfire Not to mention Deathstroke, who will go great with the Green Arrow minifigure we got in January. The only image that has surfaced is of a polybag featuring Joker and his bumber car (probably to get us excited for the Jokerland set).

As for Marvel, Lego will be releasing the Avengers Age of Ultron sets which can be seen with this link.

That’s not all though, Lego also has plans for sets based on The Avengers Assemble and Ultimate Spider-man animated series’ . Here is a list of those set names/numbers.

-76036 Carnage’s SHEILD Sky Attack

-76037 Rhino and Sandman Supervillan Team

-76038 Unnamed Ant-man Set

This means we will be seeing 2 new Spiderman sets. 3 new minifigures can be confirmed just from the names. Carnage is the villian who can be compared to Venom. We saw the spidery creature in the Lego Marvel videogame. Rhino and Sandman are also villians in the Spider-man Universe. I am willing to bet that Rhino will be a brick built figure, and Sandman will be just a normal minifigure. Besides those there are also rumors of an Iron Spider figure and a new variant of Spiderman himself.

As for Ant-man, apparently he wont be getting his own set/sets based on the movie. But we will be getting an Ant-man figure from an Avengers Assemble set.

One last Marvel announcement before I close this post. We will finally be getting a Captain America themed minifigure based on the movies! This polybag that you see below is a minifigure of the Winter Soldier, who made his appearance in Captain America:The Winter Soldier. Note he will also be in Age of Ultron. The figure features a 2 sided face and a greatly detailed torso with printing that really captures how he looks in the movie. No word yet as to how this will be available to us, but I will definenly be striving to get my hands on it.

Well that appears to be everything so far. Hopefully there will be some more set names for the DC sets and pictures to go along with the Marvel set names.

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) –

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.
