    Marvel Superheroes 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    Black widow would make a great game. Some scenes in the trailer remind me of CoD/Battlefield, and then they could base some more sets on the game

    DC Superheroes 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    @Anonknee MussNot sure why you are harping on about this. It is illogical for a multi-billion dollar multi-national to lie in this scenario. I don't see how you can be right when my own LEGO purchase history in his last year says the exact opposite of what you're saying - and indicates LEGO's statement as accurate. I bought every single Marvel set last year (huge fan of the MCU), and already bought most of this years sets. I even bought multiple duplicates of some Marvel sets last year (Iron Man HOA and three more Sanctum Santorums because they were being discontinued). I skipped the vast majority of DC sets because they had very few new characters (main draw for buying LEGO sets), and the builds are were somewhat repetitive for the most part when compared to previous years. I don't need another three jokers, 5 of the same Batman minifigure, or repeat sets that I already have when the sets are mainly vehicles. 2018/2019 Marvel waves were some of the best superhero waves ever imo, and people bought them. I don't see why Lego would lie, or you think that they are lying, because I know where most of my money has gone. If they were lying then would we see so many Marvel sets and so few DC sets? A good businesses doesn't invest more money in a product line that they have to lie to sell, especially when their target audience (kids) do not read financial results.

    I know local stores that used to release stock early here have been reprimanded, so seems it is being enforced actively now. Looking forward to the BW set. Best Marvel set in a while, as at least the chopper makes sense, and seems to be a far better build than some of the junk we've had this year.

    I agree with both of these comments, and all I can think is, "Hey LEGO group read this page. You don't need to buy another AFOL site if you read these forums. Hey LEGO, are you there??? Yooooohhoooooooooo, LEGO, where are you????". I am far less likely to buy a set if it has another bat vehicle in it, in fact I'll only drop the cash if it has previously unreleased minifigures I want. Give me a decent SHG style set in the DC/Batman range and I'll happily drop a couple of hundred on it, but I bought hardly any DC sets last year because I already have too many rinse-and-repeat vehicle sets.

    Yes! Yes! Yes! That is a vehicle set done properly. This is a day one must buy for me. I already have the TaskMaster from the comic line, so can easily that. Also think the fig is pretty cool. Overall think this is the best set we have gotten since HoA last year

    My local toy store sorts them and holds a complete set aside for customers that pre-order. Got a call today to say mine were ready. Love them all, but favourite has to be Huntress. Been hoping she'd appear in mf form since I started collecting Lego 3.5 years ago, so pleased to finally have her. The Flash and 1st appearance WW are a close 2nd/3rd. My wife saw the WW and now wants one too. Both kids want most o the series, so will probably be buying a few more of these.

    Fortunately NZ prices have remained the same, which brings us more inline with US pricing. There are two stores I frequent for my LEGO needs, the first is a local store that sets aside a completed set of any new minifigs for subscribers, and then call you the day it is available. The good thing is no need to feel out the minifigs myself, and I get the completed set on day one without needing to waste an extra dime trying to find one I still need. The second store runs weekly 20% off discounts, which the first store will honour as well, so I never pay retail for my sets other than the CMFS.

    My favourite is Huntress. Been hoping she'd show up since I started collecting Lego three years ago. Second fav is The Flash. Already getting the full wave as I have it on order. Will get as many copies of each character as I can to try and secure a second series

    I'm with @Guyon2002 on this one. The only reason I have bought some $200+ sets is because of the minifigures that came with the set. I wouldn't by any Batmobile set if it didn't have some sort of exclusive minifigure with it, but I am considering the D2C releasing next month. I have only ever bought HP sets at greatly discounted prices and then sold the minifigs so in order to reduce the set to a price I'd be willing to pay for it - I got the Great Hall set for 160NZ$ (20%), and then sold the minifigs for 100NZD.60 Bucks is all that I thought the set was worth, but I bought two hall of armour sets specifically because I wanted multiple copies of the minifigs and paid full price. Exclusive DC/Marvel minifigs will always get my attention, especially if they are awesome in the order of the new Keaton Batman - that for me is a must-have.

    Any confirmation if there will be a chaser minifig yet?
  13. 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.
