They are consistent tho — PG-13 (TV-14 / PEGI 16) is as far as they go.

Sure, The Batman or The Dark Knight are darker than your average CBM, but they are both PG-13. It's an objective number that LEGO follows. If Deadpool 3 was PG-13, we'd get sets for it. It isn't tho, which means no sets.

Right, I would never expect LEGO to make sets based on an R rated movie. I was addressing people who were saying that because there are R rated movies featuring Deadpool, we can't or won't get anymore Deadpool minifigs, comic versions or otherwise.

Comic Deadpool paired with the recent comic Wolverine from the mech in a set would probably be the easiest way to go. Armor Wars being a movie means a higher chance of seeing sets for it. We originally had a remark about a lot of new suits being introduced. Nearly at October, so hopefully we won't have to wait until November to see the D2C.

Iron Monger mk 2 ($39.99): War machine and Zeke Stane.  Warbuster mk 2 ($69.99): Colonel Rhodes and 2x Aim agent. UCS Don Cheadle bust ($349.99)

Without reading the last 4-5 pages, is the concern that there won't be a Deadpool fig, or that there won't be Deadpool 3 sets?

Even Morbius is showing up in a "Spiderman" set, so you can guarantee a much more popular Deadpool would appear in fig form, probably is some other sets (my guess would be Xmen '97 sets, which we are surely getting)

That's remained pretty stable, they've confirmed a few times that it's gonna be R-rated.

Alright, then :thumbup:

In the Suicide Squad's case, the name is the issue. LEGO doesn't really want sets with the word Suicide in them, so they made tie-in Batman sets with multiple members (Harley, Deadshot etc.).

Ooohh, right. It was because of the name. Thanks for reminding me :thumbup: 

Well, in any case, I think getting a Deadpool sometime around the release of Deadpool III isn't too far-fetched.

Oh, wait, sorry, I was given slightly off info. It's actually called UCS Emmy Award Winning Actor Don Cheadle bust ($349.99)

Are you sure that isn't actually just a delayed set for Space Jam: A New Legacy?

 

Anyway, I don't really have much to add to the current conversation, but in an effort to keep my stupid joke post relevant, I will say that it's pretty neat that Armor Wars is a movie, if only for the fact that we'll probably see some interesting sets come out of it. I could have seen Lego doing some sets based on the show version too since they just love their mechs so much, but I imagine we'll probably get more sets this way, and more variety within them.

Ig the fact that Punisher is in a set gives us hope???

To be fair, wasn't it stated in a designer interview that the reason Punisher had to be saved for an 18+ set was because of concerns about how the character is portrayed? So Deadpool would also have to be saved for a D2C in that case.

I wouldnt mind a D2C X-Mansion set with the minifigs from Deadpool 3, kind of like how they did it with Multiverse of Madness

Not that I think we won't get a deadpool, but the issue with Punisher and Daredevil was that they were somewhat well-known for the brutal (but excellent) netflix shows. The thing is, that isn't the only thing they're known for in pop culture like Deadpool is, where Ryan Reynolds and the films just became the deadpool standard. Even then there's the double hit of the comic costumes being more different from the netflix ones than deadpool is from his comic one (where it's pretty much just a darker red, as opposed to daredevil's giant DD on his chest and Punisher's spandex and white boots) alongside the shows, while being too violent for kids, not being as overtly offensive as deadpool, where the point seems to be to go as far as it can. Not that I think that's bad, it's pure deadpool, but I think it's harder for the average parent to accept (Which is also understandable). Another aspect might be morality. Daredevil is quintessentially a good man, with Catholic faith being a major part of his character, and his refusal to kill. Punisher is a more morally ambiguous character, but that's usually the point of his stories, with other heroes coming into conflict with him over that. (Also, this gives me an opportunity to bring up the amazing scene in the comics where Cap is beating down Punisher, who refuses to fight back, "not against you.") Deadpool, at least in his movies, doesn't exactly have spider-man stopping him from lopping off heads, or Cap telling him "language". (Sure, there's Colussus, but he's a joke).  

TLDR: Daredevil and punisher are from more mature stuff. Deadpool is seen by many parents as an active bad influence on kids.

The concern is that there will not be a Deadpool Minifig, since he could be associated with the R-rated movies.

The concern is no fig, since everyone seems to agree there's no way we get sets.

I think it's the third time I've said "while I think deadpool is coming, *x* reason why is inapplicable", but c'mon, morbius isn't exactly the same maturity rating as deadpool.

One has the target audience of 14 year olds, the other one has no audience whatsoever.

Just kidding, long live the morb 😈

I know its easy to complain about prices, but I can't see how they justify the £80 price for the war in the water black panther set. 

Even comparing it to other sets on sale at the moment, there isn't much consistency

War on the water. 545 pieces. 5 figs. £80

Goat boat. 564 pieces. 5 figs. £55 (£45 a few weeks ago)

Iron man armoury. 496 pieces. 8 figs. £80. 

Ive looked at it in £, but it's the same in € and $ too. 

The black panther boat makes the iron man armoury look like a good deal, and the consensus on that when it was revealed was that it was extortionate!
