Marvel Superheroes 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

Thoughts on every figure: 

WandaVision
Wanda - a great figure but the lack of skirt is mildly disappointing. Accessories aren't anything to write home about but they suit her well.
Vision - great figure and the Hex reference on the laptop is pretty fun. 
Monica - just fine, nothing more to be said really.

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier
Sam - one of the best in the series. Love Redwing!
Bucky - his accessories kinda suck but this is definitely one of the best Bucky figures we've ever gotten. Can't wait to update the IW figure with this new arm!

Loki
Loki - not a fan of Throg but the Loki figure overall is solid. That smiling faceprint sucks but luckily we do get a good alternative.
Sylvie - good figure but the lack of legprinting still puts me off. Faces also ain't good.

What If...? 
Peggy - one of the best figures in the series. Simply outstanding.
T'Challa - really good, love the new head and the legs.
Gamora - looks nice but it's a rather boring figure. Armor should've been more bulky (Jafar armor piece in gold?). 
Zombie Cap - great figure.
Spidey - definitely the worst figure of the series in my opinion. It doesn't really have anything to offer and the design is very easy to make the purist way by slapping a Doctor Strange figure on the incredibly common comic Spidey figure. Would've much rather gotten.... well.... honestly literally anyone else. 

Will definitely get the entire series but I won't need a lot of duplicates.

I am also surprised how they specifically named this series 'Marvel Studios', instead of just 'Marvel'. There's a logo and everything. I dunno why but I love it :grin_wub:

Just a nitpick: Why is the packaging blue again?! This was the perfect opportunity to have the first red one since S7, but nope :tongue: They really seem to have a thing for shades of blue it seems

Because it's a Disney+ series probably. Wouldn't surprise me if they're saving red for a "normal" Marvel series.

Random thoughts

All of these are incredible. The only one I don't like is Sylvie despite all the detail, I don't think it captures her well at all. 

Star Panther has not one, but two new molds for the helmet and for the hair!

Throg is hilariously derpy, but Croki is a massive disappointment. No crown.

Loki is pretty meh, but we knew he would be

I don't like Bucky's face, luckily I have one of the infinity war ones laying around somewhere

Monica's helicopter is so bad they might as well have not included it, love her hair though

That Peggy is perfect in every way, and makes the Hydra Stomper look even worse in comparison. Sam is still the highlight of the wave (especially with those new wings!), but she comes in close second.

Looking at the description in Shop@Home, this Spidey variant is named  'Zombie Hunter Spidey'. 

Really interesting to know which episode he's from, he probably gets this cape from Strange after he dies or becomes a Zombie.

I didn't even notice they gave him a new hairpiece, I was sure it was Cap's one!

Wow, that's even more impressive - 4 new hairpieces which can be used outside of Marvel.

WOW!!! These look absolutely incredible.

And the best part is that this opens up the possibility for more Marvel CMF in the future.

Really wondering what's up with that. The CMF figure has a new hairpiece and a new faceprint so why reuse less fitting existing pieces/prints?

So that torso which leaked for Bucky a WHILE ago was actually real. That's really the weirdest leak we've ever gotten :wacko:

What an amazing lineup! I'm gonna have to buy a box or an entire set of these. Also why does Throg look so funny haha

I would’ve preferred Loki sans the jacket, with dual-molded arms to represent rolled-up sleeves.

AAAAUUUGGH!!

OhmyGod, they are amazing!

Highlights for me:

T'Challa's face
Bucky's torso
Captain America
Zombie Cap's damaged shield

Random thoughts:
I love the little red helicopter that comes with Monica :sweet: 
Loki's serious face looks absolutely fitting to me, it's perfect.
Throg and Croki are nice, but not fantastic. I applaud the effort on Throg, though.

Regards,
Mitch

Throg looks really weird and I don't think I like it very much. Alligator Loki is cute but I wish he at least had printed horns. Overall the series is a pretty mixed bag for me - Monica getting a new hair mold is awesome, but I still can't believe you're paying the same price to get her as you are to get Sam Cap. Speaking of which, his wings look amazing! I much prefer the molded Civil War piece to the brick-built Infinity War design, so I love that LEGO found a way to split the difference and have a good-looking thin wing design that still moves.

Captain Carter is incredible but I don't understand why her hairpiece and face weren't reused in the Hydra Stomper set. Looks like I'll just have to upgrade her stealth suit figure with a duplicate copy of her CMF figure. Gamora is kinda disappointing to me since she has no new molds. The sword could've used one, her hair could've used one, and she doesn't even have any shoulder armor piece. 

Loki looks good, Bucky is meh to me since I don't really care about him, and Zombie Cap is a fantastic figure but I don't like zombies so he's not one of my favorites. T'Challa Star-Lord knocks it out of the park, though! That is one perfect figure IMO. Can't wait to get all of these and hopefully improve some past figures too!

I feel the same. I want him just for the shield, since I expect that'll be expensive to get seperately on BL and such...

His alternate face is really good but I can't wrap my head around how awful Loki's smiling faceprint is. It's like they performed plastic surgery on him to make his smile permanent and he's now forever in a state of agonising pain.

Ahhhh I don't like that Lego.com US is no longer selling complete boxes of these CMFs. Where is that feature when I need it? Looks like it's gonna be eBay for me.

I really like this series on the whole, though I do have some nitpicks. I feel like Sylvie really doesn't look much like herself (really it's just the head that's bad), and as others have pointed out this variant of Spider-Man feels unnecessary. Also, while I think Monica is good (especially love her hair), she feels very plain compared to all the others. That being said I'd still like to get most or all of these figures, especially Sam and Loki. I don't care about the What If characters too much but I do like the designs of Zombie Cap T'Challa.

Minifiguresplus usually sells them in the US for a really good price. I can post a link once they put pre-orders up, because I'm definitely buying a box too :moar:

I'm most likely gonna buy from them as well. Do you know how fast they usually ship their products?

I think they start shipping orders like 1-2 weeks after release date, which isn't too bad.

Also, the Doctor Strange Spidey is actually Zombie Hunter Spidey, which was a name we've heard of in some Marvel Legends leaks. I'm very interested in that Marvel Zombies episode now.

Yeah, that's not bad at all. Thanks!

Throg looks really weird... In a kind of Winnie the Pooh way that makes you realise he's half naked... Shouldn't this be banned in Poland?

His face was so far off what I was expecting, but I love it. Little disappointed he doesn't have a helmet, but when we get an actual LEGO Throg based on 2 seconds of screen time and a deleted scene told by Twitter, you really can't complain

 

Falcon's wings are... #£&@ING BEAUTIFUL!! Bucky looks incredible too, but is that an angry face I see? Tsk tsk LEGO, you realise you can do angry faces on other characters too right? <coughWandacoughSylviecough>

 

Peggy's suit looks incredible, love that new hairpiece too. If LEGO had given us the Stealth Suit in the CMF, and this figure in the set, I might've had to buy the set, but I'll happily be able to skip, just get this figure.

 

The faces on T'Challa and Peter look great, though judging by the hairpiece (which is awesome, might need a few of those) it looks like T'Challa might have just the one face, so fingers crossed for Peter to have an alt expression. Loki's head is spot on, might grab a few to use for TVA customs, while using the heads to replace the basic face he always gets stuck with in sets

Also noticed Gamora has a tint of yellow just above her eyes, a delightful reference to how she appears in the comics.
