  1. Cool, just hadn't heard the expression before :)

    Any confirmation if there will be a chaser minifig yet?
  3. Silly question, and apologies if it is obvious, but what is meant by OG?

    I believe it would be one of the 16, but as @Falconfan1414 said, don't pay too much attention to it yet.

    Ha, until this comment I always had assumed the 2013 exclusive was an Arrow Green Arrow tie-in. Just realised that it is actually not.

    My wife went through our accounts yesterday and realised how much I spent on Lego this year - so I won't be getting it either

    DC Superheroes 2019 - Rumours & Discussion

    I only started collecting Lego four years ago, and already have so many The Jokers and Harley Quinns. I know Batman sells, but we've had so many of them that I now I sell my new Batman minifigs to buy more Lego. I would've preferred the current wave to have included at least two villains that hadn't been done before. Off the top-of-my-head we have had Firefly, Orm and Shazam as new figs this year, and I think that could have been better. I am almost wishing for another Lego superhero movie with tie-in sets akin to TLBM just so we can get some more varied characters.
  8. Exactly how I feel. The War Machine buster felt like a copy/paste of the IW Hulk Buster. We've had way too many oversized bikes. Quin Jet was okay, at least I didn't own one before, but was the third variant I think?Would have liked if the compound had been done on a D2C scale and quality. It felt like there was no compelling reason to buy it - although my completionist OCD self had to get it, albeit at discount. The Thanos copter drop will be a must-buy for me, but only because of Rescue. I wish they did more scene based sets - so many that they can pick from, and kids love buildings too...
  9. It would take some going to do worse - the only set I have seen that has sold well is the HoA. Typically superhero sets seem to sell out fast in my area (the Aquaman movie set sold out in less than ten days and was never restocked at any of the retailers), but the Endgame wave has been readily available since it launched with the exception of the HoA set. That one seems to sell out as fast as it comes in. For me it is one of my all-time favourite sets.

    I agree with comic locations selling well. The only sets I have ever bought than one of are the hall of armour and the Sanctum Santorum sets. I do own multiple Batcaves, but never bought more than one of each. Typically with the vehicle sets I just buy the minifigs off BL. I do buy significant vehicles and the occasional mech, but for the most part give them a miss. I would happily spend a decent amount of money on a decent location set (especially if a decent Ace Chemical location set appeared), but far less willing to do so for vehicle sets.

    Tbh there are a number of other characters I'd rather see than Hush, and I typically prefer those that have been around for longer. I'd much rather see the likes of any of the Alice in Wonderland related characters, Solomon Grundy (would prefer him in a big fig), Count Vertigo, Dark Archer, Owlman, Victor Zsaz and Black Mask - hoping we get him as part of a new BoP related set, similar to what we got with the Sewer Smash set. I know Count Vertigo and Dark Archer are primarily Green Arrow enemies, but they have gone up against BM in the comics before.

    My version of the book doesn't have Mad Hatter, but he would be cool. I had a good look again, and we now definitely have 9/10 minifigs, the last one missing being hush. I think that is the great thing about the rumoured CMF series, chances are that we may actually get some decent figures to plug holes in our collections. Ironically, off-topic, but still somewhat pertinent; "We have a lot of dialogue with DC to make the minifigure look as close to what we want!"

    Pure speculation on my part, but I have a sneaky suspicion we may see Hush in minifig form within the next year. The reason for the hunch is I bought one of the Lego DC books (DC Super Heroes Visual Dictionary) for the exclusive minifigure (Yellow Lantern BM), and noticed on page 119 (chapter 4: behind the scenes) that we now have almost every single non-BM minifig on the page since the Commissioner Gordon was just released in the current BM 80th anniversary wave. Hush is the last designed minifig to not make it into a set of some sorts. Really disappointed he didn't make the CMF2 series as he is much cooler than most of the random junk we got.

    Please ignore the spoiler tags - can't seem to remove them after accidentally adding them: Maria: Torso and legs - https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?M=sw0884#T=S&O={"iconly":0} Head - https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?M=idea034#T=S&O={"iconly":0} You can add Harry Potter's hair to make it more accurate, and then also pickup the helmet and mask from BL Elektra: Aladdin's arms Torso, legs and hands - Red She-Hulk Hair - any black piece with a ponytail Face - Jasmine Really happy with these two tbh, especially considering that Maria is in a SDCC set. Exact same torso, and this version has leg printing :) At this stage seems the only exclusive part of her minifigure is possibly the head. Also, the half mask that Elektra has is from one on the Ninjago packs, but can't remember which one.
