  1. Future DC Super Heroes Rumors & Speculation

    Not quite. Black Vulcan is his own character, but he was created because of licensing disputes that kept Black Lightning off of the Super Friends cartoon. The Flash has had his own sets, though, and it's clear that a lot of their character choices are being at least somewhat influenced by what's going on on tv, especially this upcoming wave. It's no coincidence that at least half of the new characters we're getting this year are prominent Arrowverse characters, and even if that doesn't sell you, Marvel's definitely done it. We got a Ghost Rider set the same year that Ghost Rider made his debut on Agents of SHIELD, and there's no way that set would've happened yet otherwise. As for Titans, all evidence points to the contrary. Both Arrow showrunner Marc Guggenheim and Deathstroke actor Manu Bennett have heard nothing from the Titans team. The only thread of hope is that Greg Berlanti is involved with both projects, but even that's far from a sure sign these days.
  2. Future DC Super Heroes Rumors & Speculation

    It just occured to me that the new Black Vulcan figure's head has a domino mask print underneath, and given Lego's apparent hesitancy to make new black minifigure head prints, I wonder if they might recycle that head for a Black Lightning figure soon? He does have a show on the way, so a little bit of cross promotion wouldn't hurt.
  3. Purist Superhero Figures

    Ooo, good pull! I was thinking that his head and maybe his torso could be nice for Black Lightning. That head's going to be an especially nice one to have, since it looks like under that cowl he has a domino mask on. Come to think of it, that torso might even work for a Static minifig! It's not exactly what Virgil wears, but it's got the right colors and imagery to be a decent fill-in! And that head would be downright perfect for Icon!
  4. Future DC Super Heroes Rumors & Speculation

    Truth be told, I'd much rather they take some of the existing accessories and just make them in trans green, like that cool staff thingy that Sinestro had in the last set. Baseball bats, those fist pieces, maybe a chainsaw, fun stuff like that. I'll take whatever Green Lantern stuff they're willing to give, though!
  5. Purist Superhero Figures

    Possibly! I'd give it a try, but I don't have those legs I've seen a lot of Shazam figures, but while most of them go for more of a "dorky Superman" vibe, yours actually looks kinda badass?? It's hard to quantify it, but your Shazam actually looks really cool, and I love it! Black Canary and Wonder Girl are really nice, too, and that's a really interesting and unique angle on Penguin, too! Great stuff!
  6. Future DC Super Heroes Rumors & Speculation

    Sounds about right. I mean, they're in all three of the new sets, even when they only barely make sense. If there's a character you wanna see and they could use either those or the new lightning bolts - bonus points if they're in Justice League Action - then you might just be in luck.
  7. Future DC Super Heroes Rumors & Speculation

    I used to be very against the idea of making the rings actual pieces, but that handle piece seems perfect for a good, sensible Lantern ring. I'd love to see that. I'd hit up Bricklink for those guys. Supergirl might be back sooner than later, but I'd say the others aren't going to make a reappearance for a while. I wouldn't blame you if you wanted to wait to see what next summer has in store, though, since that's a real wild card. It's certainly unclear whether or not that falls into the license-specific mold category, since it isn't terribly specific. If they use it anywhere in the DC line, though, it'll probably be on a new Deathstroke figure. If not soon, then definitely when they do whatever movie is supposed to feature Deathstroke in it now. First off: that suit is a dream come true!! I'd say, though, that the tv show won't mean much in terms of toys, save for maybe some DC Legends figures. It's not like it's on cable or Netflix - putting it on that private streaming service makes its tie-in appeal extremely limited. I'd say the same applies to Young Justice at this point, although that Teen Titans Go movie is bound to get us something, albeit probably featuring figs in the same style as the show and the Dimensions packs. I'd say there's a good 20% chance that we get loose tie-in sets with the Titans in them instead of a proper TTG sub-theme, and even then, it'll probably only warrant one new figure: Raven. (and if I set my expectations that low, there's always the potential that they could exceed them! #KidFlash&Speedy2018!!)
  8. Purist Superhero Figures

    Yeah, the Wolverine torso is Light Orange, and the legs have the traditional minifig yellow.
  9. Purist Superhero Figures

    That's a great pull! Even the legs are perfect! I'm loving those figs, Drsam92! Old Man Logan is fantastic, and I love that Beast! It reminds me of Beast from the Whedon era, when he looked like a big cat! Red Tornado's really interesting, too! That torso is more fitting than a lot of others I've seen, but I can't quite figure out what about it feels so much more Red Tornado-y?? Great work, all around!
  10. Purist Superhero Figures

    In honor of the most wonderful time of the year, Arrowverse crossover week, I give you the Heroes and Villains of Crisis on Earth-X!!
  11. Purist Superhero Figures

    Two new DC villains: Murmur and Everyman! I've got some new figs planned for tomorrow, too, and maybe a handful of Marvel ones in the not too distant future!
  12. The LEGO Batman Movie Set/CMF Rumors & Discussion

    For one, there hasn't been a leak of Clock King, just a rather convincing custom. For another: the back of that head doesn't have the eye indentations. I'd bet they just printed on the back. I think the point is that Lego's still going to sell plenty of those sets if people are buying them to part out on the aftermarket, so by buying the figures on the aftermarket you're still financially encouraging sale of the set?
  13. The LEGO Batman Movie Set/CMF Rumors & Discussion

    Really? I can't believe they haven't used it in more stuff!
  14. The LEGO Batman Movie Set/CMF Rumors & Discussion

    I'm absolutely in love with every last one of these figs, save for maybe the Harley Quinn and Killer Moth figures, and those are mostly just because I'd rather see something else in there slot *cough* Batman Beyond and Agent Smith *cough cough*. We've got the perfect Killing Joke Joker, a wonderful Black Canary, the Wonder Twins, Apache Chief, and Black Vulcan all looking fantastic, absolutely lovely Zod and Jor-El minifigs (that I'm only slightly bitter about being released just after I posted this), a long-awaited Hugo Strange figure, a wonderful Clock King, and some fun-looking beach variants with some nice new or expensive parts! I have my nitpicks, of course, like Jan not coming with Gleek the monkey, the exclusion of Samurai, our last remaining Super Friend, and Jor-El's crystal piece not being the same one from the movie, but I'll be hunting down every last one of these guys if it's the last thing I do! (also: check out Black Vulcan's kickass new lightning molds! Those look fun!)
  15. Future DC Super Heroes Rumors & Speculation

    Why would you apologize for this magnum opus That's not a bad idea. Of course, a Halloween theme would make me more inclined to use characters like Klarion the Witch Boy and Etrigan and Deadman, but if they really wanted to get the Dark Matter Batmen in some sets, that'd be the way to do it. I think, apart from the LBM stuff and our Mighty Micros, we've seen all the DC we're going to see. We've already got official images of the 3 sets of the winter wave, and that's all we have coming until presumably the summer wave.
