    Batman (DC Superheroes) 2024 - Rumors & Discussion

    Batman is built like a DUPLO figure, which is certainly...a choice. Just seems like yet another elseworld. Something DC has been beating into the ground since Dark Knights Metal. Someone must not know that Nightwing is a Batman character, meaning he's on the list of most likely set inclusions. /s Seriously, though, Dick as Batman...sorta worked. Bruce trying out his best Steve Buscemi impression isn't going to fool anyone. Also, I feel like Bruce is way more recognizable with just the domino mask than Dick or any of the Robins. Side effect of age and hardened features. Turt-El's agents depowered Superman, that's why he needs the mech to fight Lex Luthor! Can LEGO not cover that trash event and instead give us normal Superman and AMAZO? (Stephanie Browns for AP) I think all I want from this new Supes is azure blue and the Thor cape with printed shield. Plus a return of the s-curl hair piece (bonus points if it has grey on the sides). Luthor needs a new face (no more 2012 Bruce Wayne for Lex Luthor), and either the power armor, or the tactical look. And a big kryptonite gun. I actually like that figure, and don't see much need for a redesign. The legs could use trunks and obviously boots, but the original Superman figure has a certain charm to him.
  2. Ever since the 2020 AT-AT came with 2 Drivers, I'm always hopeful for properly crewed vehicles. While for the clones that's been a crapshoot, I definitely see this ARC-170 giving us either (A) Odd Ball and 2 randos, or (B) Jag and two randos. With the appropriate Astromech (R4-P44 please ) and appropriate Jedi (Obi-Wan or Plo Koon, maybe a new Kit Fisto) I'm not expecting this to have any ground complement, and why would it? There are plenty of ground vehicles to get the remaining units. Though if I had a preference, I'd actually prefer the 442nd, the actual forces on the ground during the Siege of Cato Neimoidia. Save the 327th and 104th for ground vehicles & battle packs.

    It took me way too long to realize you meant Tommy Lee Jones. I missed out on all of the previous TDK Trilogy sets, but not this time! Plus, I'll probably bricklink Scarecrow and Gordon at some point. Glad to see Two-Face return! You literally just answered your own question

    I can't wait for this to be revealed! Anymore hints as to what we can expect?

    I'm pretty sure we'll get more BTAS sets, it could even allow us to get new versions of Two-Face, Ivy, and the like. It could also segue into DCAU sets on the whole (which would be awesome, Vigilante and Question minifigs when?) I'll echo everyone and say one of the 4 sets is an Animated Series Batwing, starring Batman, Robin, and Poison Ivy. I actually doubt that we'll get any villain mechs (maybe Bane?), so two surprise sets. Maybe a 4+ set? But I'd also argue Superman sets (if we get any) are unlikely to be included in the January wave. Much more likely to release in March or April, closer to the film's release date.

    "I'm sorry, old friend." Interesting. I figured it'd be Olympian-inspired. Will we get a reference to Wonder Woman's "Pantheon" line from Justice League War? All Batman, All Joker, All the time. (Maybe the more we deny our hopes, the realer they'll become )
  7. Poor dorsal fin design (when we consistently have Lambdas that get it right), unnecessary side builds, poor color scheme (subjective I'll admit, but stick to either sand blue or lbg, the mash of colors looks ugly), too small, proportions not consistent with itself (cockpit is way too big). Those are the major flaws. Every thing else can be overlooked. My biggest problem (and one people seemed to agree with) was the dorsal fin. In hindsight, it could be worse, but that initial criticism is hard to overlook. I think a bigger issue is the absolute palette-vomit that is the color scheme. Who thought that sand blue and dbg mashed together along the hull would be a good idea? Is that their idea of a wash?

    2012. I had a genius idea for a Lantern Corps: Gold Lanterns of Unity. Fast-Forward 8-10 years... I coulda had royalties, man! I like how well-thought out these are, particularly the minifig designs. What does the Legend Armor look like?
  10. Havoc Marauder was poorly designed, and The Justifier was insanely over-priced. So, to some extent, they are at least a little stupid. The sets' poor sales weren't because of lack of interest, but because of flaws in the sets themselves. Whether LEGO realizes this (or cares) is up to personal opinion, but let's not pretend that they aren't capable or willing to cherrypick data to suit their own ends. That said, at least we got the main cast, so I suppose some credit where its due. LEGO tends to not cover the animated shows all that well, not since Rebels sets (allegedly) didn't sell well. We've gotten two TBB sets, though. Both had their issues, but were overall okay for what they were (except the shuttle, that thing sucks and I'll die on that hill ) At least you can collect the Bad Batch (and Imperial Crosshair) but that's about it. Oh, and Bane. Cad Bane.
  11. I think it goes M5-BZ and then my man WAC-47 . This. I should clarify that I don't mean the meme characters (Beach Trooper, Rebel Friend, Mustachio), I specifically mean the Dev/Sev/Whoevers that these sets feature. The Ackbar Trooper is just lazy, too. Jek-14 was the man, and definitely should have been the template for future characters in that vein. I found the Freemakers useful (I bought three Kordi's for the parts alone), and White Vader and Darth Binks (which aren't Lego's OCs) are fun to have, but all in all, with much better (aka canon) alternatives for sets, I'd rather not have these sets. Give me a classic OT Falcon, anything PT or even ST related over this. Some of us don't have an OT Falcon. Besides, there's always potential for Battlefront II inspirations, Lando's ROTJ Crew, End of Empire, Mos Eisley Hangar, I could go on. I think the key difference is the amount of forgotten/ignored canon material that Lego refuses to make sets for, when they decide to use their budget for this stuff. You can't argue that Bad Batch, Andor, any of the Sequels (even the Acolyte... ) couldn't have taken at least one of those slots. YC had two sets over two years, which were not only down years for Star Wars content, the content that was relevant was thoroughly and actively being covered. Same with the Freemakers. Not to mention the 2017 Battle Pack which was basically a glorified ESB set. There's too much content for Lego to take inspiration from to waste RnD on these. Also, I'm pretty sure @MaximillianRebo was referring to the adult/collector reception, not kids. Kids will love almost anything. Adult collectors will vary in opinion, but the fact is that more people complained about the FM and RTG sets than Yoda Chronicles. All of these have their merits, to be sure. But the average collector would rather not get LEGO's Star Wars. They just want LEGO Star Wars.

    Not intentionally, no. Me too, pal. Me too.
  13. Jek's original outing was fairly well-received, it was seen as a one-off, the ship was from the EU (the superior E-Wing ), and the figs were pretty cool. Then when we next saw him, again it was one set, and we got an Ithorian (years before we'd get ol' Hammerhead from the Cantina). Freemakers was when things started to get testy. We at least got new ESB Bounty Hunters out of it, Rebels fans got Quarrie, and there were some decent figures otherwise, sets like the Non-TIE-Phantom were also nice. But people weren't happy overall when the Freemakers debuted. And now, LEGO's Star Wars OCs have worn out their welcome, I think.

    Yes. It ran for seven seasons.
