Marvel Superheroes 2016 Rumors And Discussion

Recommended Posts

The only problem for me, which doesn't give me déjà vu, is that the Minifigure selection in the Avenjet isn't nearly as good as the one in Darkseid Invasion. It's almost like Lego regretted the decision to give us that much awesomeness in one set. Sure, Thanos can be the equivalent of Darkseid and Supes and Capt America can cancel each other out, but are Hyperion, Capt Marvel and another Iron Man anywhere near the score that the debuts of Hawkman, Cyborg and Green Arrow were? No...

Yeah, I have to agree with you. Cap and Supes are about equally common. I liked the recent Avengers run by Hickman, which featured Hyperion, but seriously, nobody cares about Hyperion. He's a one note parody of Superman. But yeah, Marvel is tied up in a plan, and so they can't just give us the best figures like DC can, they have to give us the figures that won't interfere. In a year, DC will have the same problem. But at least Captain Marvel and Thanos are completely comparable to Darkseid/Cyborg.

I can easily see Hawkeye being passed over since he has two versions from Avengers movie sets previously. If we have to sacrifice Hawkeye in order to get a Black Panther, Falcon, etc., that's a sacrifice I'm willing to make.

Man, we are on the same wavelengths. Hawkeye has had two different costumes already, and he's not going to be a central character to the film like Iron Man, Captain America, Winter Soldier, Falcon, or even Agent 13, Black Panther, or Black Widow will be. Add to that what Marvel said about merchandising their female characters in the film, add to that the hints that J2G has been dropping about Crossbones and Ant-Man, add to it Lego's propensity to put Spider-Man in everything, and there's really no room for Hawkeye's new costume. There's still a chance, though. If he doesn't appear, I bet we get another Hawkeye wave after this one.

Oh, and I ought to mention Black Widow's finally appearing in a cheap set :wink:

(Even though I've got both prior to it) Yes! Maybe with blue Lightsaber blades for her batons! Boo-yah!

How about they say all that they know like Hulk Smash does. :D

Because Hulk saw prelim photos, and doesn't have any risk revealing everything.

sir gareth and j2g. Have inside sources and risk their sources getting in trouble and losing them.

Just to clarify, the sets we do know about. Are those all of the 2016 Marvel sets? Or is this just winter and spring releases, meaning summer is still unknown?

That's just winter/spring. There's still even more to come.

C'mon j2g and Sir Gareth prove me right!

Does anyone know if there will be a summer wave of racers, even though they'd only come out about 3-5 months after the initial Racers wave?

I really hope no heroes on the teams are left out in these civil war sets. I know we have previous variants for some, but others desperately need to be updated (Scarlet Witch and War Machine come to mind. Purple Hawkeye would be appreciated). Just2good hinted at more civil war sets, possibly even in the summer wave, and there is likely a retail exclusive in there somewhere so I have hope we'll get everyone we need.

Weird that there's 4 DC racers but only 3 for Marvel.

I also find it strange.

Side note: at this point in time, I'm a little disappointed Bucky is in two sets. He's taking up valuable slots!

I'll second asking j2g if he can confirm the presence of Black Panther. Based on what we know so far, BP being available is literally the only other detail I care about in the winter/spring waves.
