    Marvel Superheroes 2022 - Rumors & Discussion

    So the rumored Black Panther transport sets turned out to be a bust? It looks highly detailed and cool, but I have to ask why make this set? They could have easily made scaled down version of BP mask like Venom head in 60-80$ range, not 300$ set! If they wanted to do UCS style BP set, they should have done giant Panther statue from Wakanda instead. And they didn't even bother including T'Challa minifigure in this 300$ set? Like what was Lego thinking here?!

    So with these new minifigures we have a confirmation that Shuri Is new Black Panther. Strangely enough she doesn't have any leg print in BP suit compared to other suit in small sets. M'Baku looks kinda boring tbh. Okoye looks amazing though, just skirt piece is needed to complete her look from movies.

    Great Advent calendar this year, big improvement over last years! Nebula has Thanos and infinity stones on her ugly Christmas sweater, and Drax baby Groot. Builds are ok, and so are reused figs. But why didn’t Lego give Star-Lord dual Mildred legs from Benetar set here? That set is still in production, so legs should be available to be used in calendar set as well. Oh well… I wouldn’t worry about this since we have GoTG 3 sets coming next year. Probably new versions of Drax and Nebula included there.

    Hope Lego artwork of Okoye and M'Baku means they are in big final set. I means why else would they include those characters on the box and design their minifigures?

    Wow, new Black Panther sets look great! First of all really happy they made small set form 1st movie with new T’Challa minifig in unpowered BP costume. As far as BP 2 sets go Namors throne is a must buy! Throne looks amazing, and Shuris submarine is fine as well. But minifigs are the real highlight. Shuri in BP suit looks cool and has leg print(?!), looks like Namor has wings printed on his legs, and Attuma looks interesting to say the least. Sunbird looks great as well, although a bit overpriced. Minifigs are again a highlight, and Nakia look great here, Not sure about Iron heart, pic is too blurry.

    Well no surprise Guardians Advent calendar sounds great, repeats of Benatar figures is expected, although it sad that Lego was cheap enough to not give Star-Lord dual molded legs here. Also why would Lego change Drax skin color? He looks very much grey in the movies, and I always thought his minifigs were accurate. Not sure how can they change his skin color to be more accurate…
  7. New Comander Cody looks great, finally we have him! Although I agree that his visor should have had antenna molded into it, it still looks really good. Now I have to get that At-Te set😅
  8. Both new Obi-Wan sets are amazing! Jedi starfighters build is ok, but Kaminoan minifig is great, must buy just for it alone. Scythe looks great as well, kinda like Krennics shuttle without a fin. And it has a lot of interior space, rare thing for sets of this size. Minifig wise, Obi-Wan here looks a bit plain, but inquisitors steal the show. Grand Inquisitor looks good, but not as good as 2015 version(red-eyes now instead of yellow "dark side eyes"), Fith brother looks great, hope he has second expression though as one that was shown is rather plain. Third Sister is rather plain looking though, especially with no leg print and inaccurate hairpiece. But overall Schythe looks great for 100$!
  9. Color me surprised, I lost hope for P2 Cody, and Lego has gone and made him! Description sounds great At-Te sounds like the best set of the wave for me! Shame we don’t get ep3 Obi-Wan in a set though.
  10. Seeing a lot of people here saying demand for Phase2 Cody isn’t that big. So you’re either lying to yourself, or been living under a rock in a Tatooine desert. Let’s face the facts, he’s a popular character from a Clone wars show, which a whole generation of SW fans grew up watching. These kids are now young adults and have disposable income to buy stuff like lego. And they want to buy a popular character from a show they love. And obviously Lego had plenty of chances to make P2 Cody in the past: 2012-2014 CW wave of sets were a perfect place for him. If not that 2020 Grievous starfighter was a perfect inclusion for Cody as he literally appears when Obi-Wan duels Grievous on Utapau, yet instead Lego included random Airborne trooper. And before someone says “but he needs a new mold”, just look at how many new mold Lego made in recent history which will probably never be used again (Knights of Ren helmets, Unkar Plutt, Teebo head just to name a few). And unlike above mentioned examples, updated P2 clone helmet could be reused for other P2 clones. So, to sum up, it makes perfect sense that a lot of people want P2 Cody , and Lego is missing out by not making that figure.

    New Stormbreaker build definitely uses telescope piece instead of Monkey kid hilt in reddish brown. Another missed opportunity for Lego. I still prefer that custom build for Stormbreaker using 3l bar. I seriously don't understand why Lego can't use that fan design for Stormbreaker as it's superior to Legos designs.

    This new Thor set is amazing! The boat build looks great, but goats themselves are kinda weak build. New Valkyrie and Korg figures look really cool as well. Although I still don’t get why they call her King Valkyrie instead of Queen. Gorr though looks pretty bad. Torso looks like a mummy prints. And face is just bad. But that might be movie designs fault. Overall it’s a great set, with some small flaws. Hope second Thor set is just as cool.

    Nothing about this pack is certain as of now. If we’re wishlisting though, I’d like for the pack to include Endgame Ronin, Black Widow and Red Skull as storekeeper from that Vormir scene.

    Kinda sucks Lego choose to save some money here by reusing head print that’s inaccurate for this version of Thor. Oh well, I guess I will have to reuse 2020 Avengers game face on new figure.
