    Marvel Superheroes 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    Going by that story picture, I guess Loki comes with Throg?

    Oof, Peggy feels like a wasted inclusion considering we're already getting her in a set at the same time. At least the Steamboat Willie Mickey and Minnie had the excuse of needing new molds when Ideas sets could only use pre-existing molds at that time, but that explanation wouldn't really apply here. A repeat like this wouldn't be too big of an issue if the series had 16-20 minifigures, but in a series of only 12, every slot needs to count. Now if the CMF figure is in a different outfit from the set version, then it's inclusion would feel more justified.

    Bohner's new story indicates we're getting finale Scarlet Witch, Spectral Vision, and Monica

    At this point, I'm starting to think that LEGO might revisit some of these shows with sets later on. I don't think it would be too far-fetched, considering that both WandaVision and Falcon and the Winter Soldier apparently both had premiere viewership numbers exceeding that of The Mandalorian Season 2, and LEGO is clearly more willing to revisit past MCU properties now.

    I feel like Johnny Storm and Iceman won't be showing up in sets until their characters show up in the MCU. Cloak and Dagger would be excellent choices. I'd be satisfied if they used their designs from LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2. Silver Sable would be great too. I'd like to see how LEGO would do Frog Man. Rocket Racer would be neat, but would feel a bit wasted without a Big Wheel to go up against.

    Yeah, I was still typing that up when he posted, so I didn't see that until after I posted. Rather disappointing, but hopefully whatever heroes they include will be good picks.

    No new villains other than Black Cat? Oof, I was really hoping for more than that. I really hope the next wave of comic Spider-Man sets improves the villain selection, because I was really hoping for this set to add at least a few more characters to the rogues gallery instead of just one. More heroes? That could be interesting. Three more, combined with the confirmed Spider-Man, Daredevil and Punisher, would equal six heroes to balance out the Sinister Six. Peter Parker and Jameson added to that lineup would bring the minifigure total to the 14 that was the minimum confirmed. Stan Lee would be a fun bonus inclusion, but I'm not sure if LEGO would go that route.

    Harry Potter 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    It's very difficult to read the minifigure names on the box art, but it looks like it does say Luna's name on there. So yeah, just a weird choice probably just so they could include a more noteworthy Ravenclaw student, similar to the Hogwarts Moments sets including younger versions of Cho and Cedric to represent their respective houses, despite them not being in the earlier movies that those sets were otherwise based on.

    Harry Potter 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    Random thoughts: It looks like the Technic pin system used to connect the new sets uses the same positioning as the 2018-2020 sets, so they should be easy enough to integrate with the previous sets. I think the new Great Hall/Chamber of Secrets will be a worthy enough successor to the 2018 version, even if that version has a better looking exterior. The interior of this new one is fantastic, and demonstrates great attention to detail on the part of the designers. I still hope the buildable Fawkes set includes a minifigure scale Fawkes in a flying position, as that would definitely add a bit to the Chamber of Secrets. Luna's a strange inclusion, but now we have house robes for all four houses. The accessory pack could be robed students just as plausibly as it could be Quidditch players, as no new torso printings would be needed either way. The Bathroom being positioned directly over the slide to the Chamber of Secrets makes me think the sink area will open up. I'm not sure if Dumbledore is meant to be in the same outfit represented in CMF Series 2 or not, but the lighter color scheme is a fun throwback either way, plus the hairpiece in white is very welcome. Now that Devil's Snare is confirmed for the Forbidden Corridor, I wonder if we'll get the Chamber of Winged Keys and the Stone Chamber in the future to complete the setup. The minifigure selection is pretty great. I'm very happy they seem to be making robes the new default, as the jumpers were getting a bit old. With Harry having an open robe in the Chamber of Secrets and closed robes in the Forbidden Corridor, and Hogsmeade Harry having the 2019 torso but with black legs instead of dark gray, there are technically no entirely repeated figures in the sets as far as I can tell. I'm pleasantly surprised they found a clever way to make Nick different from the 2018 version, when they could have easily gotten away with reusing that figure. Raises a lot of questions for the future. If they make other house ghosts, would they be glow-in-the-dark too? Will they include a glow-in-the-dark version of Myrtle in a set someday? I wonder which characters will be represented in the Wizarding Cards. Dumbledore seems obvious, plus his card was a major plot point. The four founders would be great. Maybe Newt Scamander too. I believe it was confirmed that the main trio got their own cards at some point, so their inclusion wouldn't be too out of place.

    No, I agree that the TFA Hydra Soldier would have been better to get. A TFA set in general with completely new variants would have been more exciting to get than a AOU set, especially when the Cap and Hydra Soldier from 2015 are still pretty easy to find online and it's doubtful LEGO will do much to improve upon those for the new set.

    Eh, I suppose the AOU Cap could be improved on, but I'd only see LEGO using the new helmet piece and fixing some torso details for the 4+, considering the Endgame version isn't getting arm or leg detailing. I would have much preferred a TFA or Stealth Suit variant, but I suppose we could get those in a later wave. Hopefully the Hydra Soldier will have a helmet this time. The AOU Hydra Soldiers would really benefit from leg printing, but I'm not sure that LEGO would include it.

    Super Mario 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    Interesting. Would we be assuming that's for the D2C? The picture in the IG story is confusing, because it shows Mario as being smaller than the minifigure, so could that be implying it's a microfigure? I would hope not, as I've been waiting for LEGO to do a proper minifigure of Mario for some time now.

    I second that you should wait for the CMF for Wanda and Bucky. For Black Widow, I'd recommend the one from last year with arm printing, the cheapest set it's found in being the Falcon and Black Widow Team Up pack for 14.99 (Though that's becoming more difficult to find, as its retiring soon). The same figure is also in Avengers Tower and the Helicarrier. If you're interested in the upcoming Endgame Rocket, it should be coming in the Benatar for $149.99. Otherwise, I'd say the best one released so far is the polybag version with the dark red outfit. The 2018 Ant-Man and Wasp from the Quantum Realm Explorers set aren't too tricky to find. The War Machine from the Helicarrier is pretty good. The version from the 2018 Infinity War Bricktober pack is better, but also more expensive. However, that Bricktober pack is also the only way to get Wong, so if you're lucky enough to find a Bricktober pack for a price you are willing to pay, you can cross War Machine, Wong, and Bucky off your list at once and get an exclusive Tony Stark variant as well. Both Doctor Strange figures that have been released are very similar, with the only differences being the hair pieces used, and the 2016 version having the collar attached to the cape, while the 2018 Infinity War version has the collar as a separate piece from the cape.

    You raise a good point about Deadpool and Joker. I had assumed that Deadpool got a figure because it was released years before the Deadpool movie came out and established him as an R-rated character. Since then, we've gotten Deadpool minifigures as SDCC exclusives but that's about it, but then again, LEGO hasn't done much of anything with X-Men related characters recently. Joker is a weird case, because he's had a lot of different portrayals, and LEGO has done both lighter versions such as the 1966 version, and also darker portrayals such as the Dark Knight version (though that version has only been in a D2C set so far). Joker has also had CMF figures clearly based on his outfits from The Dark Knight Returns and The Killing Joke, which would be dark enough choices, but their included accessories are even darker with the context of the original stories. Hopefully the rumors of Charlie Cox playing Matt Murdock in Spider-Man: No Way Home turn out to be true, as that would definitely increase the chances of getting something more with the character from LEGO. I do think there's a chance at least one new mold could be introduced in the Daily Bugle, as it wouldn't be the first time a D2C introduced a new part. I do hope any other new characters in the Bugle will be detailed to a satisfying degree. Punisher has been hinted to have dual molded legs (the same as on Black Cat), so that's a plus. Hopefully Daredevil will have leg printing like the LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2 version it's been compared to.

    My main concern is that unless Daredevil starts prominently featuring in PG-13 MCU installments/shows, the mature nature of his Netflix series could make LEGO only be willing to include him (and other characters associated with him) in 18+ sets like the Daily Bugle. I'm still disappointed that the large torso piece used by Mr. Incredible in the LEGO Incredibles video game doesn't exist as an actual part, because it would be really useful for larger characters that don't need to be bigfigs. Ideally, Elektra should probably just get a new hairpiece similar to what she got in the video games. I'm not sure how a printed cap would look, and as you mention, part 11254pb02 wouldn't get her usual hair design quite right despite the molded cap looking very close. I think Elektra has been drawn with thicker curly hair, but it was shortlived, and I don't believe she really wore the cap during that time either.
