I think that somebody has mirrored that image incase it gets removed, it won't look like that.

It on backwards. The only times words  are backwards is on emergency vehicles so people can see them in their mirrors, but their normally in the front not the sides. I'm pretty sure it a mistake, the person probbaly put it on wrong sticker on wrong side.

Unless they glued it on with the normally sticky side out, it is indeed a mirror image.  The license plate is also backwards in that image.

The release date for Arkham has been changed... to December 31st. :cry_sad:
Uhm... Isn't that a good thing? :wacko: I know it's just one day earlier than January 1st and still wont be out before Christmas, but I can't wait to get this set, so any day it gets released earlier is a good thing in my book! :thumbup:

I for one am thrilled that the release date has come forward but it's not good news for people who wont have the money until January as it's likely to be on back order by January 1st.

The new Man of Steel trailer is out:


It gives a few hints as to what the new sets might include.

My local TRU has;
76000 Batman vs. Mr Freeze - Aquaman on Ice
76004 Spider-Man - Spider-Cycle Chase
76001 The Bat vs. Bane Tumbler Chase

If anybody here needs to have these sets under the tree for Christmas I can help you out. Shipping would be from Winnipeg MB R3L1J8. I'll charge you the cost of the set and shipping. (there is a 12% sales tax). Check out shipping costs on Canadapost.ca . PM me only if you are seriously interested.

Maybe there's only five in this wave. Or TRU doesn't have the Daily Bugle yet, like they didn't have the Turtle Lair when I went there yesterday. Hoping for a sixth set.

Also that trailer is epic. I guessing that ship in the trailer is [spoiler] General Zod's ship, Black Zero, which was confirmed in preliminary toy commercials[spoiler/].  It should make for a good Lego ship in the. Black Zero Escape set.

I'm guessing we'll get a MoS Superman, at least two versions of Zod, Lois Lane, and Zod's robotic army.

AFAIK there are only 5 sets including the Daily Bugle in this wave... Do you know of more? did I miss something? or are you just talking about the unnanounced marvel set some had been talking about to even up the numbers...  Otherwise we still have 6 more sets for when the MofS and IM3 come out.

Also: not sure what to think of the trailer. Superman is cool for DC (like Batman better but they've done enough of him for now) but it seems like they overdid the origin stuff.  I might be talked into a MofS set if certin family members are wowed by the film

I'm asumming that there will be a third  winter Marvel set to even the odds  as the starting waves are  equal and the summer 2013  are equal. Even if DC has the D2C Arkham, Marvel needs a winter store exclusive to match DC

I like the new MoS  trailer, I don't think overdid  his origin, the Human population not accepting him right away is interesting.

Okay...  hope you are right... Like some others who have posted i hope it's not another spiderman set, not that I don't like him, it's just that, IMO, we could use an x-men or better yet avengers set more, although, realistically it would more likely be X-men.
Still...  I wish we could get a version of the top floors of Star tower as our big $120-$150 set (A roof scene with an enternce leading down to the single floor where everything went on in the movie) Some have suggested the Helicarrier but I don't see how they would pull that off nicely without making it a $300 plus set (which LEGO wont do). Anyone know if there is a current X-Men animated series to draw off of? if not, with EMH being cancelled, I fear we might have to settle for yet another spider man set.

Interesting trailer for MoS, do we finally see Lego bring out modern military vehicles and troops in the way they did for Indina Jones (1940's/1950's era ) ?

I just ordered the Freeze set form Amazon UK. The Bane set is also available but very expensive, I'll be waiting a while to see if the price drops. I do think that the Bane set wil eventually hold the figures that'll be most sought after. (Like ALfred in the old Batcave set, Gordon and movie Bane in this.)
