I saw at TRU today the new DC Universe Super Heroes Lego sets. There was a Mech with Lex Luthor, Superman, and Wonder Woman. Then there was a Catwoman/Batman set and a Joker/Batman set with the batjet and a helicopter. They also had herofactory/bionicle type figures of Batman, Joker, and Green Lantern. I was most intrigued by the Mech set with Lex, Superman and WW but I am afraid it will be one of those things that if I get one of the sets I will want to get more and with no DC minimates coming it is even more tempting but I didn't get it. . . . at least for now. Anyone else thinking of getting these?

Sorry I didn't look close enough, this can be merged with the DC legos thread!


Ahh, guess I shoulda walked over the the Lego section today. Oh well. I will definitely be getting some of these at some point, but I don't think there's anything in the first releases that really grabs me. But once they get a little deeper into the DCU, I'm sure there will be some things I'll salivate over. Wonder Woman's invisible jet, Blue Beetle's Bug, the Hall of Justice... :wub:

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: HELLPOP GETS IT.

Great. there will be no living with him now.rolleyes.gif

TRU is known for marking up Lego, especially at the Holidays. If you can wait, there will be plenty at other retailers in the new year.

I'll be getting the Luthor set and the Dynamic Duo Funhouse Escape set.

I like the minimate batplane and batmobile designs better than the current Lego sets.

No... price creep is coming to Lego too. For the newer releases, the former $10 price point is closer $12 or $14 for example. (I have a pair of Legomaniacs in my home) Add to that the fact that liscenced Lego sets are always more expensive, and there you go.

And here's the thing... TRU, for the most part, is not adding a big mark up to their stuff. It's just that the other major chains, like Wal-Mart and Target, sell toys for below MSRP in the hopes Mommy and Daddy will buy something else while trying to save a buck on toys.

Actually, the four sets i waited on just showed up on lego shop at home forless, $14.99 each on the robot hero type things and $12.99 for the catwoman set so it is just a TRU markup

I'm definitely interested, if nothing else, to add the minifigs to my work desk (my collection includes various figs from Collectable Minifigs Wave 1 - 5, Dastan, Captain Jack, Indiana Jones, Lego Santa and Ash Williams). HOWEVER as someone who's not overly fond of Batman, I'm disappointed at the lack of non-Batman sets.

Personally I am more interested in seeing the four Earth Green Lanterns (especially Kyle), Booster Gold, Blue Beetle, Aquaman, the Flash, the Atom and the other DC heroes I find more interesting and compelling then Mr Wayne. I will be getting the Superman set though. I'm hoping another wave is announced for 2012.

Yeah the Batjet and Batmobile are the only C3 sets that I hung on to and I am glad because I also think they look better than what we are getting here.

Sorry, MM, but you are incorrect.

Check Lego shop@home website for msrp. If you compare that to Target, they are usually the same (on very few occasions Target has an odd markup). Compare it to TRU, and you will see the insane price hikes.

And, some of the new DC sets are actually coming in at the golden price point of 10 cents per piece, despite being a license.

Yup; I never buy Lego at TRU for this reason. Target & Fred Meyer in WA have regular sales, and if I want to pay msrp I am fortunate enough to have a Lego store 5 blocks from the TRU (nice for those TRU and WalMart exclusives). TRU really likes to gouge for the pleasure of having new year sets early.

Post 52 Booster Gold was one of my FAVOURITE series. It allowed the character to get a lot more depth and growth that I feel made him one of the best heroes DC has; I was really disappointed when his series never carried over into the new 52 especially with so many un-resolved plot lines (though someone said if it did, he'd go out of his way to undo it). Blue Beetle (at least Ted Kord) is a character I've not really read bar his involved with BG but from what little I see, he has all the "qualities" of Batman (powerless super genius inventor) but with a greater sense of humour, charm and personality - aspects I feel Batman severely lacks (though I'll admit my dislike of Batman is more due to the way other writers de-rail other heroes (especially Superman, whom I've developed a lot of respect and interest in) to make Batman more awesome by comparison - Frank Millar's work and JLA Act of God spring to mind). Aquaman is a character who gets a really bad rap but his involvement in Brightest Day actually made him interesting in my eyes and I am liking Geoff's work on his new run. And finally, Kyle is the guy who got me interested in DC and Green Lantern in the first place. Until then I was a Spider-Man fanboy/Marvel Zombie. I can understand people's dislike of the character but I grew up reading about him, much like how Ben was a key focus of the Spidey comics I started to read.

Now granted I suspect Booster and Beetle are too minor to get any Lego sets made of them (which is a shame) but I'm hoping the Green Lanterns and Aquaman stand a better shot.

If they are in the game, there's a chance. Yeah, there's gonna be/is a game- Lego Batman 2: DC Universe. They are pulling it on the back of the boxes. And while it probably won't be true that every character iun the game will get a toy, I doubt they'll get toys without being in the game.

Is it kosher to drop links in here?

http://www.actionfig...-comics-license

3000 Green Lantern and Batman minifig give away.. and it looks like we are talking the full DC Comics License so Supes, WW, Flash, Luthor, Sinestro, etc. My desire for DC Minimates may force me to collect these.
..and I'm with you guys.. I REALLY hope this leads to a LEGO DCU video game. Playing Batman Lego, I always made home made Hal Jordan's and Superman's to play in the game... the whole time I wished that this would be the next step!


Sounds like there is an announcement in the advertising inside the new DC Lego sets that says LEGO BATMAN 2: DC Superheroes is official and coming out in 2012 (most likely near the relase of the new Batman movie). I CAN NOT WAIT for this game!..
As far as the building sets go.. I am tempted to get the Lex Luthor robot with Wonder Woman and Superman.. but I may wait to see some GL and Flash sets first. I like how many minifigs they are putting in these sets.. even the smaller sets. Kreons could learn from this. :)

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.

GET IT! Seriously, the Lex suit set is one of the best values in this line so far for $20 with 3 main minifigs and a cool robot suit. And for $40 the Joker Funhouse is a great deal too, with Batman, Robin, Riddler, Joker AND Harley all in one set! I got the benefit of buying them at the Lego Store in Anaheim at MSRP plus rewards points! (plus 10% off IF you have a Disneyland annual pass)

DST Never Says Never, so why do YOU? DC Minimates will return one day!
