DST needs to forget about little Johnny .


That's the point. Little Johnny spends more money than all collectors combined. With Hasbro collectors make up less than 11% of the market. With Minimates at TRU we'd be lucky to take 30%. Little Johnny has been and always will be the dream catch for every company. He's their bread and butter.

I agree that these look like slag. That won't stop parents from buying them very simply because they say "Lego" on them.

I'm not going to say it yet, but we're dead.

No, he's right -- not making that one character doomed the line. Doomed, I tell you. The minute we left him out of Series 1 a raven flew through our window. And killed an intern.

If this means a few interesting little sets, vehicles and weapons/accessories at are fairly minimate-compatible, then this is good by my books.

Looking at these photo's I have to say I'm not being wowed by these,
Thor & wolverine look good/cute, (I like the clever way they've done Wolverine's claws).
Hulk actually looks awesome because he's HUGE!!
Iron Man looks like someone put a minimate IM2 head on a lego body and Cap America looks like a cheap custom.

Overall the DC lego looks way more consistent.

I guess other that brand recognition the biggest advantages they'll have over minimates is Quality control and plastic quality.

To be fair, Peter Dinklage is much bigger than a raccoon.

I'm actually of the opinion that Marvel Legos may be able to actually help sell Minimates.
When parents don't want to spend $25 - $100 for a set of Legos just to get one Lego minifig, they may decide to buy a pack of 2 Minimates for $7.50 instead.

It sounds silly, but it may actually help sell some Minimates. TRU relocating Minimates to the Lego/MegaBlocks aisle would also help with that.

Although they haven't actually said if they are selling these individually (as the various series of blind pack Minifigs) or if they will make sets, have they?

I'm not a DC guy by any means, but I would definitely buy a Lego Invisible Plane with Wonder Woman set!!!

Pretty underwhelmed with the Marvel sets. After the Batcave, the Funhouse, and even the Lexbot, the best they could do was a helicopter, a very small part of SHIELD interior, and a Quinjet?? Even Cap's cycle i was hoping would have some scenery. Sigh.



And Loki escaping on a van is the funniest thing EVER.

Deadpool looks cool. Not real impressed with Iron Man's helmet. Looks way too big for his body. I'm hoping this isn't the final design.

go to agree, the Marvel sets are pretty underwhelming, and Iron Man looks ridiculous. Quite like Hulk, but he doesn't exactly look Lego-like, does he now.


like I said in the DC thread (for some reason), Cap's bike will be pretty perfect for mates. It is the same model as the big generic cop bike. I have my Ghost Rider one it, and it is pretty huge, just had to give the handlebars a trim, of course.

so... something for wave 42 Cap to ride.

Maybe I'm just spoilt by Minimates and Mega Bloks renditions but these look ridiculous, bobble head iron man? some sort of emo hulk? I'll be steering my nephew clear of these, although I will have to purchase a video game if they make one, my partner collects lego video games (and I don't mind them all that much to be honest).
I help out at my nephews school every week for a few hours, supervising/encouraging kids to play with lego, but all the stuff they have is oooooold and it's much better for playing with, I'm just not into lego's current output.

I'm excited about the new Super Heroes lines. I feel like the new Batwing is weak compared to the first one, but I like the new Joker copter and the new Batmobile better than the originals. The minifigs look great, and the 2 sided heads are a welcome touch.

They don't have the paint apps or the articulation of Minimates, but LEGO figures are cool in their own way.

Turns out there's one set we did NOT know was coming:

Ultimate Spider-man: Spidey, Iron Fist, Doc Ock. No pics of the set, just the minifigs. They look pretty good.

Not put here yet. Target's website lists them as available 4/8, but I've seen where some people have gotten theirs early. I read a review where the guy referred to them as alien soldier and alien general, but I don't know if that was the official name or just what he called them.

yeah thats what they have been referred to i was just curious if they were actually called by their real name in the instructions?

Just got the set, and they are not named on either the instructions or the box. Not even "alien general" or "alien soldier." Bummer.

So far the only store around here that has them is TRU and they had alot of em. I picked up the Loki's escape with the S.H.I.E.L.D. truck since i could handle the $2 price increase over the $10 one for the Quinjet. Everything i saw referred to them as 'alien soldier'.
