    Marvel Superheroes 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    I know people aren't all that fussed about the SE Avengers, but was talking with a co-worker today about how he'd picked up the Lego superheroes magazine featuring the comic Captain America fig and it inspired me to look up who the freebie is for the next mag - and it's the new War Machine from the helicarrier! Which means, hopefully, his price on the second hand market should drop significantly. Just thought I'd mention it in case anyone else was interested.

    Definitely. While I do like this fig I'm still hoping for a comic Vision down the line with a red face printed on a green head (or MCU if he gets his colour back). But considering how much red is in MCU Vision's design, I do understand why they went the way they did. Just looks a bit strange to me. Ha, nevermind then! As I said, I've completely forgotten what the descriptions were. Thanks.

    You're probably right. Just curious how torn they'd make, say, his arms. Considering there are so many Caps incoming I'm sure between the 4(?) of them we'll be able to figure something out.

    After the first Vision pic I wasn't a fan. Especially because it reinforced my belief that he needs some sort of headpiece or at least less of an abrupt stop around the edges of his face. But this new picture is so much better. I think I'm slowly coming round to all the figures we've seen so far (even Wanda's goofy hair is growing on me!). Pretty indifferent about Sylvie but I may try and pick up all the rest. Zombie Cap is the one I want to see the most now, if only because it'd be cool if you could take his limbs and make the perfect regular Cap (I can't remember what the description said he'd look like).
  5. I second Smyth's (or at least I think it was Smyth's - might have been the Entertainer). I once saw the Falcon for almost £100 off there once. It was a while after it released, but it's worth keeping an eye out.

    That Cap really is quite beautiful. The new picture definitely helped. I was previously thinking that the arms could do with more white (it's not inaccurate, but it's kind of an Endgame Captain Marvel situation), but this new picture doesn't make that seem so necessary.
  7. Decided to go back and have another look at the comments under MandR's post. Ticked off a few more! So far, I've got: 'Too expensive! Too big! Rah, Disney! Not enough figures (x1000000000)! Not the clone I wanted! And too many studs!' I did find one that could be construed as 'Repeated mistake', but I think that's all we're going to get. Good game @jdubbs, it's been fun.
  8. Looks good. Not a set I'm particularly interested in myself, but it's a beautiful model. Are we playing Bingo yet? First post I saw was MandR's, but I didn't do so well. It's just all complaints about figures. A couple of comments that could pass for price and size complaints at a push, but overall, figures aside, people seem pretty positive?

    That fig looked a bit off to me at first but I think that's just the picture itself rather than the figure. After looking at it a bit I quite like it. Was curious to see how they'd do his hair, seeing as half of it is covered by his mask and I think this is a good solution. And as others have said, it'll be a good hairpiece for Blade. I hope the wings do the figure justice. But if not I still have the Civil War wing piece.

    I understand that. I'm just saying, to me, the more detailed these Spider-Man figures get (extra torso printing, extra leg printing, arm printing, etc), the more his lack of boot printing, possible or not, stands out. Especially because it's more noticeable than unprinted hands, or a dual moulded torso. It's like the Endgame Iron Man figure. IMO, the full gold arms and the printed gold on the legs stand out more because they contrast slightly. If that's the best they can do, that's fine. And I appreciate how much things have progressed (especially this year) but until the boot printing becomes possible, it will always look a little off to me.

    Pretty cool figs. But that Spidey figure really does make me yearn for printed boots. The extra detail is nice (and has been on all the Spider-Man figs this year imo), but the more detailed it gets, the more the boots contrast with the rest of the costume. I understand it's probably pretty difficult to accomplish, but to my eye it always makes the figure as a whole look a little off. The exceptions being perhaps the Homecoming suit and the FFH suit (although I'd have to see the latter in person to be sure).

    Pretty cool sets. As everyone's said, the figures are amazing. I really like that new Spider-Man head with the tinted lenses. Also, I don't know what it is about the MCU Spider-Man figs, but their dual moulded legs/boots look so much less plain than the comic variants, despite the fact neither have web printing. For that reason, I may have to get that FFH suit to replace comic Spidey on my Bugle. Vulture too, such a great update. Also wondering if that monster is Scorpion. Maybe Gargan gets transformed by something in the Sanctum? Between the pincers and the colour scheme, it seems like too much of a coincidence to be a random Lego creation (although it almost certainly is just that).

    Shoulders down: great figure. But that head/hair... Not for me. I was only really interested in Captain Falcon, Scarlet Witch and President Loki. But since one of those isn't happening and another is what it is, I guess Sam is now the only figure I actually want.

    I don't know about that. While in Ragnarok he is shorter than the Hulk, in Endgame, in the cabin at least, he seems to be taller than (Professor/smart) Hulk, who obviously was still a big fig. So I think a big fig would be appropriate (I'd be fine with the Nexo Knights suggestion as well). Although as I said, I wouldn't expect that here, because I agree he'd then be too big for the set.

    Yeah, I don't love the Korg fig. Not meaning to restart any debates but I think to make him accurate he should be a big fig with a moulded head. HOWEVER, within the context of this set, which I love, I think it works well enough. A big fig would be very out of place here. Love how much detail is packed into the set. Awesome and very fun little display piece. Miek also looks hilarious, in a good way.
