    Marvel Superheroes 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    I'm currently going to assume that Venom will be exactly as he's been the past couple years, Mysterio is probably going to be a repeat of the Monster Truck set version (Though I'd like to see more arm/leg detailing), and Green Goblin is presumably going to be a repeat of the Spider-Lair version (Again, arm printing or dual molded legs would be an appreciated upgrade).

    Marvel Superheroes 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    If Electro does show up in the next movie in a prominent role, I could see LEGO making a comic minifigure at some point (probably a year or two later) after the movie version, like what they did with Mysterio. They also made a new Vulture variant for the comic sets after his appearance in Homecoming. On the other hand, secondary villains such as Shocker, Molten Man, and Hydro Man have not received comic minifigures yet. In general, the comic Spider-Man line is in dire need of a better villain selection. I would be disappointed if the next wave of sets continues to reuse the same villains we keep getting without any new inclusions. I hope that the new bigfig design we're getting with Thanos this year is used for Kingpin and comic Rhino later on, because it would be quite the missed opportunity to not get either of them.

    I'm pretty sure Falconfan described Black Cat as being "the only new villain" in the set, which suggests that she's not being treated as an ally by LEGO.

    Marvel Superheroes 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    Nothing new yet. Because we have four villains confirmed (Venom, Black Cat, Mysterio and Green Goblin), there logically should be two more villains to form the Sinister Six that has been hinted at, neither of which being new villains and going by the art series that Falconfan was using to confirm villain inclusions and absences, could be among Doc Ock, Vulture, Scorpion, Kraven or Sandman. I'm also predicting/hoping that Robbie Robertson is the third mystery figure, as it wouldn't really make sense to leave him out of a Daily Bugle set at this price point. I do hope there's more than 14 minifigures though, as some additional new heroes would be great.

    Has it been confirmed that the Black Panther minifigure will be exactly the same in both sets? It would be preferable if we got a regular variant in addition to the glow variant that we've already seen in the leaks. The box images are too blurry for me to determine anything regarding that.

    Most likely a brickbuilt version of the lightning refocusing cannons he had Thor supercharge.

    Didn't Falconfan confirm somewhere that Shocker wasn't going to be included, or am I misremembering?

    Marvel Superheroes 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    I still can't tell if Iron Man Mk. 85 is notably different from the 2019 version (I'm still holding out for arm detailing of some sort), and I also can't tell for sure if Obadiah Stane has a new face print. Probably going to have to wait for better picture to confirm those details.

    Harry Potter 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    A solid lineup of characters for the Chocolate frog cards overall. Random observations: I'm pleasantly surprised that the main trio did not get included in the card lineup. I don't think there are any canon sources stating that Maxime, Picquery, Flamel, and Snape got their own Chocolate Frog cards, but they make sense as inclusions. I'm still convinced that there are two Dumbledores and no Merlin included. Looking at the hats and beards, they are a solid match for the Gambon Dumbledore from CMF Series 1 (gold and purple frame card) and Harris Dumbledore from CMF Series 2 (silver frame card), with neither card's hat and beard combination matching up with the Universal card's depiction of Merlin. Rather peculiar that Maxime got a card but Karkaroff did not. Newt's card looks like it portrays him with the Series 20 Brick Costume Guy haripiece instead of his typical hairpiece. It might just be an artist interpretation that doesn't mean anything, though I would like it if they used that hairpiece for him in future sets. I still hope we get a minifigure of Nicolas Flamel next year. For that matter, I also hope we get that variant of Picquery as a minifigure at some point. The COG design we did get was a less interesting design with considerably less screen time.

    Harry Potter 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    From the picture, it looks like two different Dumbledores (Harris and Gambon), McGonagall, Ollivander, Gryffindor, Slytherin, and Ravenclaw. The rightmost one I cannot identify, and there appears to be a duplicate Gambon Dumbledore in the lot.

    LEGO 2019 Stranger Things Rumours Discussion

    Very interesting... If we get another D2C set, I'm hoping we either get a season 2 Hawkins National Laboratory set or a Season 3 Starcourt Mall.

    DC Superheroes 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    I think logically, a camo Tumbler or the Bat would be make more sense for a Dark Knight Rises minifigure selection, considering the black Tumbler didn't really feature in that movie. I'd like it if one of the Tumblers had minifigures from Batman Begins (ideally Batman, Ra's al Ghul, and Scarecrow), and the other from The Dark Knight (Batman, Two-Face, and Joker (possibly the green vest or nurse outfit if they wanted to set it apart from the 2014 version)).

    If the Advent Calendar Black Widow is a repeat, I hope it's the one from the SDCC Taskmaster Ambush.

    Marvel Superheroes 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    It will definitely be interesting to see how LEGO handles next year's sets with how much MCU content is coming out. Between sets for Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Magic, Thor: Love and Thunder, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, and The Marvels, plus a potential spoiler wave for Spider-Man: No Way Home, a likely continuation of the Infinity Saga sets, and almost certainly more Disney+ sets, 2022 is shaping up to be a very expensive year.

    Harry Potter 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    They could still do a Leaky Cauldron set based more on Prisoner of Azkaban instead. Perhaps something like that could include the main trio (Hermione can reuse the Hogwarts Express torso), Tom, the housekeeper/maid, and perhaps Arthur Weasley. It could also include another Monster Book of Monsters (Maybe slightly different printing from CMF?) and if we're lucky, they could include a new Crookshanks mold too.

    Marvel Superheroes 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    Now I hope even more that LEGO eventually releases more for The Falcon and the Winter Soldier than just the two minifigures from the CMF. There's a few characters/variants I'm not sure we'd get if they never put out any sets for the series.

    Marvel Superheroes 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    I'm starting to think all villains in the set will count as members of the Sinister Six even if they weren't traditional members in the comics, and Falconfan described Black Cat as the only new villain, which seems to confirm she's being considered a villain for the purposes of this set, so if we assume that Venom, Black Cat, Mysterio, and Green Goblin are counted as part of the Sinister Six, that would mean two more villains to form the Sinister Six (and I'd be surprised if Doc Ock wasn't one of them), leaving room for at least another two figures that could be civillians and/or heroes.

    Marvel Superheroes 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    Spider-Woman? Now that's a good inclusion, considering how incredibly expensive the SDCC one is. Hopefully she gets dual molded legs. I wonder if there's still any other heroes included we don't know about yet (I'm still hoping for Cloak and Dagger), or if Daily Bugle employees will fill out the rest of the lineup. Either way, between Daredevil, Punisher and Spider-Woman, the hero lineup seems to be way more exciting than the villain lineup, considering Black Cat seems to be the only new villain.

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

    Marvel Superheroes 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    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

    Marvel Superheroes 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    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.

    Marvel Superheroes 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    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.

    Marvel Superheroes 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    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.
