    Marvel Superheroes 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    What comparable sets are there to the Bugle? I was thinking about Diagon Alley which was €100 more expensive, had 14 figures, 4 of which were new (I think? Correct me if I'm wrong!). So are we thinking 16 / 17 minifigs then?

    Just to put out an alternative viewpoint: while it would make sense to us for the sets to be revealed today alongside the video, from a marketing perspective it might be better to hold out for another time. Rather than cramming all their news in to one day, and thus only getting one article on a site, if they do different reveals at different times Marvel has more presence in more news cycles, which is better from a PR perspective. Today will all be new Eternals footage / new movie names articles -- why have the Lego sets only be a paragraph at the bottom of those today when they could be a whole article to themselves another day? Don't get me wrong, I'd *love* the sets to be revealed today, but I think the comments about the "perfect" time to reveal them are only looking from a consumer / our viewpoint.

    Super Mario 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    Do we know if the deal between Lego and Nintendo covers franchises other than Mario? Everything has been branded 'Lego Super Mario' so I wonder if the current products are specifically under that and not a wider Nintendo deal. It might be a reason for Zelda sets not appearing yet?

    This is entirely speculation, but I wonder if the sets will be revealed via Marvel Must Haves during the fallow period over the next week / few weeks? If Marvel had some sort of exclusivity over the reveal, that might explain why set pics haven't leaked with the others?

    Super Mario 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    The original wave of Super Mario sets were revealed in March last year, but the NES wasn't revealed until July. So unless the release for the D2C this year is earlier, I would doubt we'll see it soon...? Has there been any indication of the release month / quarter for the D2C? I may have missed it.

    Do we know for certain there's going to be a VIP release for the Daily Bugle? If it's releasing 1 June, then we might not see a leak for another month -- R2-D2 just leaked this week and it's coming out 1 May. Diagon Alley was only revealed a day before it's release last year and without early VIP access...

    Presumably the R2-D2 as it was in the video, and that can't have been an accident. And it's the next due for release after these, I think?

    Well I guess the nice thing about a fictional universe is that we can each choose to hold on to the bits that we liked or that mattered to us :-) Good point, well made! :-P

    Agent Carter had Kevin Feige as an exec producer, which I would presume led to the Jarvis cameo and gives it the best shot of being part of the MCU canon out of all of the TV shows prior to Disney+. (And to keep this post somewhat on-topic, what I wouldn't give for Agent Carter and Edwin Jarvis figs in the CMF...)

    Marvel Superheroes 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    Is there a possibility that Wanda's new costume is being included in the Endgame set? I haven't read any info ruling this out, and while obviously it wouldn't match the source material, I wonder if Lego were given enough info about the costume and knew the timing of this set, then it would make sense from a marketing point of view to have her new costume in it...? Just a thought, considering we haven't had a fig in 5 years to jump to two in one year (Endgame and WV) feels like a lot.

    Thanks for clarifying -- potentially expensive year ahead!

    Marvel Superheroes 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    Isn't it possible that they'll run with "iconic" designs for characters, rather than any specific MCU / comic designs? Eg for a potential Daredevil figure, going with one that the widest audience would recognise through merch etc rather than specifically designed for one or the other -- similar to Bucky as mentioned already? Am I right in thinking that the mystery (and potentially not-Marvel) D2C is a separate set to any of these? Sorry, I just can't remember if there was a set number attached, but the price was more expensive right?

    What time would the Bespin set likely to be go on sale on S@H in Canada? Would it be midnight ET across all of North America...?

    It seems most of Europe will have these sets, as well as: 75242 Black Ace TIE Interceptor LEGO Star Wars Notebook with Gel Pen 20th Anniversary Darth Vader™ Link Watch Unclear what the exact discount %s will be, but the Action Battle sets are already discounted 15%. Is the US getting a sale at all? I don't see any mention of it on their May the 4th page, whereas there is a panel on other country's pages...
