LEGO Does the DC Universe
« on: July 20, 2011, 10:52 AM »
LEGO gets full DC license

Oh man, I know two five-year olds who are going to freak out over this news...  not to mention their dad, who will be even more excited for his LEGO booth tour at Toy Fair next year. :)

Very excited for this.  The boy is not old enough yet to "Get" LEGO's but he is on the edge so this will be Christmas and Birthday Fodder for a while.

LEGO must not have received the memo about the DCnU costume changes.  :-X

Plenty of time to update Superman/WW to the "new look" I suppose...

This is great news.  Not only do I get to look forward to dc character minifigs (and hopefully they actually explore the DCU a bit, beyond Batman/Superman/Green Lantern), but this also means I can look forward to a Lego DCU videogame.  My boys know the DCU maily from me collecting the toy line, and the old Justice League cartoon.  But hopefully this means we will also have a co-op game that I can play with them to look forward to.

Toys R Us in Minnetonka had the Batman and Catwoman + Cycle set when I Was in earlier this week.  I took a close up picture and can post if anyone wants to see it.  They had the three big-figure sets too, but they looked pretty lame IMO.

Looks like Flash will be joining the LEGO DCU next year.  :)

There will also be a promo black-suit Superman and Green Arrow figures given away at SDCC this year too...  (never did track down that super-expensive SDCC LEGO Green Lantern from a couple years back :()

UCS Tumbler. 

The UCS Batmobile got me back into LEGO a few years back so I kinda feel obligated to buy this...plus it looks kinda awesome.   8)

SDCC Exclusive 1960's Batmobile

 ::) ::) ::)

This is the kind of crap that really ticks me off because this is a set I would happily purchase for the $40 they're going to be selling for at Comic Con. Of course now if I want an actual set I'll have to shell out hundreds of dollars.
