Marvel Superheroes 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

Recommended Posts

I'm glad LEGO got involved with Marvel, because the series wasn't going through the best of times. But since they have taken over the series, we will probably get the best sets in the history of the series. This year is the best in the history of the series. So much for Marvel comes out.

Ya know, I’m starting to worry our expectations are getting too high, and I’m including myself in this. We haven’t even seen the sets yet, and this year we have had like what—a relatively strong Ninjago wave and a good creator expert (I’m probably missing something here). I mean, 2021 hasn’t been our best year so far. That being said, I’m not going to listen to my own advice and continue hyping up for this.

Yes, the sets sound cool, but I don't overestimate the expectations. I expect anything from them. But I hope the sets will be normal.

Black Panther leaked, he looks great! 

With even more detail on the face and torso, the bare arms and legs stick out even more :(

Really could have done with leg printing 

Dont get me wrong, the printing looks great! Just thinking how all the eternal figs got leg printing and black panther looks odd without it.

Exactly there’s so much detail on the torso and head so the legs look weird without printing

A "lower your expectations" with the Black Panther minifigure upfront would have been more helpful, just saying

Torso and head is nice but the lack of leg printing really noticable and what's worst is this can't be fixed coz I can't think of a character with black legs and purple printing glow.

We already knew the legs, arms and earpiece wouldn't have any printing. For what it is the figure looks fantastic imo.

On a positive note: Captain America with shield, hair piece and printed helmet is coming in the Lego Marvel magazine issue after Thor. That is even cheaper than the small mech set

The torso is a slight improvement, but the head with the printing and the unprinted "ear" piece clashes to much. It would have looked better if either the ear piece was also printed (like they did once in the past) or if the printing on the head was toned down, so that it doesn't have this abrupt change between ear piece and head.

Or even better give us a mask like they did for Captain America and Cap Marvel alongside a Chadwick Boseman head print. Lego is severly lacking in good and easy to get head prints for POC

Okay, we got a clearer image. I can't possibly be the only one thinking it just look terrible, right?

New Black Panther looks really nice, but Lego once again cheapened out on leg print. Hopefully if Star-lord T'challa is in Cmf we can get good leg print for Black Panther.

Hmmmm. Isn't T'Challa is Starlord not Black Panther so he will be donning Starlord costume? The only thing we can benefit in that figure if he is included is a T'Challa face which is much better than legs if you ask me.

How would the T'Challa Star-Lord leg printing fit the normal Black Panther printing? Have you even seen his What if costume? He is wearing a purple version of the Star-Lord leather jacket in the What if trailer. It isn't a Black Panther costume in space but just a stylized recolour of Star-Lord's costume with T'Challa in it.

This is a render of a Lego version of the trailer costume. The legs are just black combat trousers with yellow highlights (no purple energy effects whatsoever). 49799850898_bc8e8cd71b_n.jpg

Just a speculation on my part. Soafr we haven't gotten full look at What if? T'Challa costume, just jacket. Maybe his Star-Lord mask is Wakanda inspired and does resemble his Black Panther cowl. We need a better look at his full costume though.

How does this even slightly resemble a Black Panther cowl? It's literally just Star-Lords helmet with differently colored eyes and different hair sticking out.

I like Black Panther, he looks good enough. The printing is top notch, but those unprinted legs really stick out.

Only thing we can butcher in this figure is T'Challa face printing, how ironic we will get one but not from Black Panther lolz. I hope this figure is included in a set as TLG sometimes go crazy with their picks. This is a fan favorite.

Head looks worse than the previous version (Above).

Torso has more detail, but feels overly detailed and the detail is not accurate to the design:

  • Spikes on upper torso are now bigger with random 'dagger tips' and obscure the upper purple segments of the figure (Probably based on the hot toys version which featured that innacuracy)
  • They have replaced a lot of the segments that should be purple on the figure with white
  • They have added a lot of random extra details that are not on the torso of Black Panther

Feels like someone was told to go back and add more lines to what would have been a fine simplistic black and purple torso with his signature spikey necklace style piece. Despite the purple being more accurate, the blue version still has better designs and balance of black, white, gray, silver'ish and the blue/purple than the newer version
