    Marvel Superheroes 2022 - Rumors & Discussion

    We are definitely getting the Hulkbuster and Brick_Clicker is a credible leaker. It's a bit depressing that people are questioning leakers so much at this stage. The set will be revealed officially in less than a month and likely will leak before that. People won't have long to wait and we've had Avengers Tower ruled out for months.

    Black Panther WF Trailer 2 dropped while typing this: The previous Hulkbuster was 1,363 pieces with approximately 1,000 pieces used on the primary build and was about 25cm tall. This one is 4,049 pieces and it's seemingly entirely on the Hulkbuster. If the generalized remarks were accurate in the past referring to it being 'double the size' then this could be close to 50-60cm tall. For a sense of potential scale based on such remarks, we could be looking at something the same size as the Hulkbuster MK2 Power Pose which is 50cm tall. Hopefully this helps put into perspective why it may still potentially be worth your money even if the piece count/price seems daunting. Given the scale the Brick-Built Iron Man we got earlier this year might be in-scale with this Personally, I'm probably one of the few people who would really like to get an iconic large scale Hulkbuster for display and sheer size of a massive Lego mech and even I'm a little disappointed with it if it winds up being the Infinity War MK2 version after all. That version was barely used and generally has a less iconic design in my view. I've heard some remarks that it may be more of a blend between the MK1 and MK2 design elements that's simply labelled as the MK2 so more of its own thing but I'm not sure that's a positive if it decreases the accuracy of the set. The piece count is definitely the main problem with this set and the rise in costs makes it an almost impossible sell for people. Some information may have been crossed with other sets/rumours at the time. The original description of 'double the size' presumably led to them linking the piece count of the Black Panther Bust set (2,961 pieces) to the Hulkbuster info - given the previous Hulkbuster was 1,363 pieces including all the random other things. The Bruce Banner stuff may have been either speculation or crossed wires with the smaller scale Hulkbuster MK2 that's releasing in January. Likely Bruce Banner is included in that set potentially along with other figures.

    TLDR: $550 (Inflation is a pain, originally intended to be $500) 4049 pieces, many of these are big pieces. Is big/tall Tony Stark figure, the one we've seen 4049 pieces for $550 is kinda crazy and that's before price fluctuations based on locations. I think $550 is a very difficult sell, $500 would be a much easier sell judging via just the price to parts ratio but even that would have been a little over what the cost should be which would be more logical at around $450. HOWEVER I'm aware the pieces for this set are big. This is going to be a big Hulkbuster. I think the scale could help convince people once they see it. I've saved up £50 on VIP points and hopefully it's going to wind up being part of a double/triple VIP points or maybe associated with some November promotions that can be sold to recoup some of the cost. I'd encourage everyone not to dismiss it just yet. Let us see images first, especially ones that help to demonstrate the scale of the set. It may be the AoU Hulkbuster Mark 2 (E.g. a re-do of the MK48) as opposed to a Hulkbuster Mark 2 judging from comments that have been relayed it sounds like it's combining elements of both so it's not a direct adaptation of one version or the other despite the title. In terms of the Price Per Piece the pieces are big. The set is big. The inflation is a massive pain and it will negatively impact sales, but I do think from what I've heard that it would have been something I could see people dropping $500 on. In terms of the figure, as per the first point I would not write it off entirely. It's intentionally a variation of a figure most people already have because Lego are trying to stray away from the complaint of really important figures being locked behind high priced sets - which is why it's from a very short scene in AoU and barely of any focus. Great for collectors but not a massive miss for fans and casual fans have alternatives. Hopefully we get official images soon. Makes sense, globally most places are in a bad financial position and an expensive set is going to be difficult even ignoring other factors.

    According to a survey by Falconfan1414 on Instagram, the Black Panther Bust is apparently not selling too well so far. We've already talked about the bust a lot, but is anyone here buying it? The scale is a lot bigger given the Dragon Flyers are in scale so its much more likely to be a futuristic aircaft carrier taking inspiration from the luxury yacht. The trouble is at its core its another black and gray build, they were probably working on concept art and the final design is probably black and gray, but it's not visually engaging. The design may look better in the movie, but Lego charging a ridiculous amount for it certainly won't help with the sales. If this was cheaper, then maybe, but the original design inspiration does not save the set itself from looking bland. While the article is from October 2nd 2022, the transcript it and you are referencing is a Brick Fanatics article from December 23rd 2021 back when we had the rumours of us getting some legacy sets inspired by the Raimi Series. That rumour turned out to be false. Our next chance to get Spider-man: No Way Home sets is 2HY 2023. It's already been remarked on that we won't get any in 1HY 2023. Personally, considering how many new characters would be required I doubt we'll end up seeing No Way Home legacy sets at all, as you'd need Green Goblin, Doc Ock, Lizard, Electro, Sandman, Tobey Spider-man and Andrew Spider-man - that's quite a few figures and we are starting to reach the point of four/five films a year.

    Next chance to get them is probably 2HY 2023. Though at this stage, we probably won't get them as we've not seen much merchandise for the villains of the film.

    For UK people the return of Toysrus' website offers some potential savings on the Marvel sets and some other sets, so worth checking that out. October is finally here. Due to recent remarks via Brick_Clicker it appears we are down to only one set left for the year that we are aware of: 76210. This is the mystery D2C priced at $500+ and presumably including the AoU Iron Man figure recently. Speculation has primarily been related to the Hulkbuster MKI or MKII, teased over a year ago, however we probably won't know much more for a while as the rumored release date is November 11th 2022. Updated List:

    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.

    It's still coming and as far as we are aware it is the last Marvel set of 2022. The release date is believed to be November 11th 2022. It's been through a lot of delays so most likely The Black Panther bust was going to be released on November 11th but got moved forward instead. The set was originally priced at $500, but is very likely more than that due to a mixture of reasons Brick_Clicker seems to believe the Iron Man figure is from the set Though we don't know the identity of the $500+ set at the moment, it's most likely going to be the Hulkbuster. This would fit in with early mixed reports from Promobricks from November last year that we were getting a Hulkbuster MKII. Though given the figure is based on the appearance of Iron Man during Age Of Ultron I would not be entirely surprised if we wind up with the Hulkbuster MKI or perhaps some blend between the two designs or even the ability to rebuild using the included pieces between the two designs. It'd finally make sense for the year, given we'd have a set that potentially represents Thor Ragnarok (The Hammer), Black Panther (Black Panther Bust), Infinity War (Sanctum Sanctorum) and Endgame (Hulkbuster MKII). I'd lean towards Thor's Hammer as sorta fitting into Ragnarok because that was part of the main focus of the original marketing, the Hammer being destroyed. I'd guess if they had anything planned for Captain Marvel it was probably pushed back when the film was... potentially 76232 'The Marvels' set if that is still releasing in January as opposed to getting delayed (Think along the lines of a legacy Captain Marvel set releasing under 'The Marvels' branding perhaps. Maybe I'm sorta fitting things together for this theory, but I think the Black Panther Bust, Sanctum and Hulkbuster MKII kinda fit the idea.

    Honestly, I could see them revamping and re-releasing 6866 again or something very similar. We had a comic Wolverine this year with a mech, so just do a comic Deadpool and release a set featuring them. Probably throw in another character also in comic form that's partially related to the movie or popular.

    We probably won't have a leak of the $500+ set until Mid/Late October - but remember that most the 2023 stuff is back-to-back so we should have leaks monthly once we get into 2023 :)

    $500+ would give them a lot more wiggle room given the previous version was around $120. We're talking over 4x the budget. At such a scale it'd be easier to provide detailing. I'd also expect them to have taken in feedback, so chances are they'd focus on display. Though admittedly we're probably getting too hyped up on the idea of it being the Hulkbuster, it could still wind up being a Black Panther 2 Vehicle given the potential release date on the same day as Black Panther 2. We're unlikely to see the set until late October but I really do hope it is the Hulkbuster, such a big mech would surely introduced a lot of new elements that one could use for mech builds let alone just seeing a $500+ Lego mech, like the closest we have is Bowser and that's around $270...

    Marvel Superheroes 2022 - Rumors & Discussion

    Given all the apparently delays and pushbacks, coupled with present day inflation, we should probably consider that the $500 set probably won't be $500 if/when it releases on November 11th. I feel acknowledging that might be beneficial now to prepare ourselves for any price fluctuations. We've been referring to it as the $500 set for a while as we don't know what it is unfortunately, but that pricing and information was from November 2021 and times have changed unfortunately. Personally I'd be fine with just Hulkbuster, if it's like a definitive perfect version, I'd consider it even if the pricing was high. I want a Hulkbuster that I can pose and display and always enjoyed Lego venturing into mech builds - plus the Hulkbuster concept is technically a guy in a mech suit wearing a mech suit, which is pretty awesome for the concept I've always liked builds with dark red so they appeal to me asthetically and I think it could easily improve a lot over the flaws of the previous version that people remarked on. Ideally would like a MK1 which was focused on more but I could easily see the MKII being the more likely if it winds up being the D2C given the original remarks by Promobricks way back in November last year. I'm curious as to what it'll wind up being.

    For those who were speculating on the Black Panther 2 trailer, I'd probably lean to around NYCC 2022 from October 6th-9th, so the sets will release prior but at least the second trailer should not be far after. I've never seen Hulk wearing socks... but your point is made. We really have no clue on the $500 set. We can perhaps lean towards generalized information that was reported such as the remark on a Hulkbuster MKII set, but that may have been mixed up with the January sets. Logically it'd probably be something that is based on an iconic aspect from Infinity War or Endgame however Black Panther and potentially Captain Marvel should be under consideration under the idea they were financially succesful solo movies. Generally it'd make sense to go for something popular in theory. We should also factor in the potential for the potential release date of November 11th to be hinting towards it being based on Black Panther Wakanda Forever which releases the same day. Though I don't think that's a wise choice personally as it'd not have had much exposure prior. It's not just Legoleaks, but seemingly any hashtag, which definitely makes it worse. It's going to make finding and relaying Lego information more difficult if this is an intentional change for whatever reason. So last word I'll say on it for the moment is that anyone searching for new information needs to make sure to visit the users themselves who provide it. I really hope it is temporary.

    What if the Hulkbuster is the AoU one... but it's not the only thing in the $500 set. Hulkbuster having around 2,700 pieces (Double the previous version) as rumored, Hulk having around 1,700 for a total piece count of 4,400 including an exclusive Iron Man figure. Just speculation, no clue what the $500 set is now. Source Yeah, Instagram being a broken mess is definitely going to be a problem going into $500 set leak/rumour season (October) for it's stated 11th November release. It'll probably be important to check around multiple users as we won't be able to see their posts on hashtags unless Instagram fixes this mess. Only Marvel characters that I could see people buying at that insane scale would be Iron Man with Arc Reactor and Repulsor Gauntlet, Thanos with Helmet & Infinity Gauntlet and Captain America with his helmet if it was with half of the shield as opposed to the hands. I feel those characters have had the most focus.
