    DC Superheroes 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    Oh, I don't know, I think Lego would jump at the chance to do another movie-verse Batmobile, Batwing and Batcave

    I'm afraid to be the bringer of bad news, but Sinestro is regular blue, but the 2016 Nightwing is definitely an azure colour

    Yep! I got my series in Fort Kinnaird's Smyths, Edinburgh. Now begins the long wait for the next sets...

    Just picked up all 16 from my nearest Smyths! Had a casual conversation with a security guard, but it was worth it

    I'm still assuming that, continuing on from the dark grey/black Batmobile, Batwing and Batcycle builds last year, we'll complete the usual set this year with a Batboat and Batcopter in those colours as well. For minifigures, I also see a Rebirth Harley, Rebirth/New 52 Bane, and maybe Penguin to continue last year's collection of mainstay Batman villains. I would love a Rebirth Batgirl though (the grey costume that is) and a Rebirth Killer Moth would fit nicely with her. Would I like a greater variety in sets? Absolutely, but it's also Lego. I'm just glad last year finally gave me an official Firefly

    I didn't mention Shazam But, I assume you mean Green Lantern, which is probably fair, I just want characters that would actually use a mech, well, ever (though that didn't stop them with Spidey or Thanos)

    I don't doubt DC will produce their own mini-mechs like the Marvel ones, which could actually turn out rather nicely if done properly. The Marvel ones are pretty nice, it's just some fit the characters better than others So what do we think? My guesses would be Batman, Lex and a Green Lantern (with the mech being a construct) and possibly a Joker one thrown into a regular set, like how the Venom one is

    That's Joker and Superman up. Just Bat-Mite to go. Strangely enough, Superman is wearing his first Rebirth suit, and not the Reborn one. Not a bad fig though I'm hoping for a more neutral alternate face. Joker is really nice, though I think the legs are just printed for the sake of it. I think the jacket comes down too low, and might just swap them out with standard white ones. A more menacing Joker face is long overdue, though the fig itself is kinda morbid (at least he comes with the cotton candy, and not, say, a batarang or a mug )

    Aha! You're quite right! While Simon Hurt *did* drug Batman, Bat-Might himself served as a guide to Bruce in his Zurr En Arrh state

    Including when, during the final episode, he went out of his way to cancel the series, so that he could get a darker Batman show, technically "succeeding" with the announcement of Beware the Batman not long afterwards That was a meta episode haha

    It just depends. Do you prefer the cheeky little imp with dimension warping powers? Or Batman's drug fuelled hallucination?

    C'mon man, just use Google.

    I've been using the 2016 Superman hair for Joker in the past. I would love to see that officially made in green

    Think they specifically said all figs were golden age based, so that rules out Black Mask or Deathstroke You've got golden age Flash and Superman from Action Comics #1, a long awaited nemesis (possibly Black Adam, who first appeared in 1945) and a Batman villain not on shelves at the moment, the forerunners there being Scarecrow, Penguin or Hatter. (You know that I'd happily accept a Golden Age Killer Moth though @RedHoodPug haha, with those huge eyebrows)

    DC Superheroes 2019 - Rumours, Speculation & Discussion

    It's either, has never been on the shelves, which pretty much leaves us with Mad Hatter, or they're just not presently on shelves, which could be either a Penguin or Scarecrow variant.

    DC Superheroes 2019 - Rumours, Speculation & Discussion

    I wouldn't call it a bad choice, considering that's what Deathstroke had worn for decades. The only other choice at the time would have been the New 52 one, considering the more armoured ones you might be accustomed to all debuted outside the comics

    Hasbro, Mattel...it all blends together when they're not Lego. Still, no Marvel CMFs.

    Now that they're made in the same factory (?) as other sets, it's presumably easier to reuse assets like Arthur's head, and shower guy's torso

    Marvel Superheroes 2019 - Rumours, Speculation & Discussion

    Now a comics CMF, that would actually be interesting... But, the same issues apply

    Hasbro has a monopoly on Marvel and Star Wars action figures. Minifigures are classified as such, and so can not be sold individually. Now personally, I'm really happy with my DC series, but this is how it is

    DC Superheroes 2019 - Rumours, Speculation & Discussion

    Cyborg, Batman, WW, Sinestro, Potentially Cheetah and Bumblebee and Simon Baz are all based on their debut outfits to the best of my knowledge, while Stargirl and Metamorpho have had a pretty consistent look throughout their history. The outlier is Huntress, who is seemingly based on her look torwards the end of Pre-Flashpoint DC, and early New 52.

    Maybe not first appearance Lex, but perhaps the version seen in the Forty Cakes dictionary extract

    Oh absolutely, I'm actually a bit surprised we haven't seen his 2016 mould reused on a new variant. His MM and CMF figs both used the bumblebee part. Seeing the helmet in a pearl silver or light grey to represent his Year One/Rebirth looks would be brilliant

    No, Silkie, which is one of Killer Moth's genetically modified moth larvae. Starfire adopted it in both the Teen Titans and TTG shows. Honestly, I'd love another Moth variant
