In case you forgot, there's a Lego Marvel video game still on the docket this year. That's on top of Lego Jurassic World, Lego Worlds and Lego Dimensions, all of which are either currently available or coming very, very soon. Though we haven't had a Lego Marvel game proper since Lego Marvel Super Heroes in 2013, we have had one of the biggest Marvel movies of all time release this year. Guess that makes it perfect timing for a new adventure in the Lego Marvel world.
The first full trailer for Lego Marvel's Avengers arrived today, just ahead of its gameplay debut at E3 2015. Like Lego Jurassic Park, Indiana Jones, Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings before it, Lego Avengers will combine the cinematic heroics of Marvel's most well-known team of heroes into one game disc. While it is a bit of a shame we won't have quite as big a look into the Lego Marvel U as we did with the previous game, this trailer does bring back fond feelings for Lego Hulk.
Earlier this year, Lego revealed its impressive Marvel Super Hero SHIELD Helicarrier set to the world at Toy Fair. The 2,996 pieces combine to form a mammoth 31"x17"x11" scaled replica of the vehicle du jour for Marvel's elite global security organization. Having recently rekindled my love of Lego with the Assault on Avengers Tower set, I convinced my wife that the SHIELD Helicarrier would be the perfect weekend activity for the two of us to share.
In the latest sign that publishers are waking up to the idea that young readers and women represent the future of the comic book industry, DC Comics has announced a new initiative in partnership with Mattel, Lego, and other brands, which focuses entirely on superhero products for an audience of young women; DC Super Hero Girls.
If you've always wanted to live in Springfield, but just couldn't find the birthplace of the Simpsons on any dang map in the known 'verse, Lego might just have a solution for you. Already invested in delivering miniaturized versions of the iconic characters and the residence that the Simpsons call home, Lego will soon expand the line to include everyone's favorite convenience store, Kwik-E-Mart.
This week sees the release of new Lego Marvel Super Hero sets tying into Avengers: Age of Ultron. While we're still waiting for the SHIELD Helicarrier to arrive, the series did drop a quinjet, a Hulkbuster, and a mini-Avengers Tower, among others, onto store shelves. Having been out of the Lego game for almost two decades, these were the sets that were going to bring me back into the fold. It was mighty hard to resist the quinjet set, but if there's one thing my house is missing, and that I could no longer live without, it's an Avengers Tower.
If you're looking for a diverse line of toys that not only spans a variety of licenses and genres, but also puts your brain to the test, Lego's Toy Fair 2015 offerings might be of interest to you. From Marvel and DC to Scooby-Doo and Star Wars, this year's line-up offers incredible do-it-yourself creations for fans of all ages, even those meddling kids.
For what seems like an eternity, Lego and Marvel fans alike have been looking forward to the brickmaker's take on SHIELD's iconic mobile headquarters, the Helicarrier. After years of waiting, the dream came true. This March, Lego will release a massive scale replica of the high-flying fortress, complete with the world's first ever Maria Hill mini-figure.
Coming in at just under 3,000 pieces (2,996 to be exact), the Lego SHIELD Helicarrier isn't just going to be a beast to put together, at 31 inches long, 17 inches wide, and 11 inches tall, it's also going to be one of the largest Lego sets in the Marvel Super Hero Line (though it's still a bit smaller than the Lego Super Star Destroyer from Star Wars). It should be noted, the Helicarrier being released is going to be based on the first Avengers film, and not Avengers: Age of Ultron. However, the mini-figures included are all based on the costumes Black Widow, Captain America, Hawkeye, Nick Fury and Maria Hill are wearing in the latest film. And yes, you read that right; there will be two female figures included, even if it will cost you $349.99 to get them.
After more than 45 years, Scooby-Doo is finally getting the Lego treatment. Warner Bros. and Lego announced a partnership that would see Scooby-Doo, Shaggy, and the rest of Mystery, Inc. brought to life in block form in five new sets, as well as new made-for-video features from WB Animation.
Lego's DC Comics Super Heroes line has been cranking out the blocky jams for a few years. In all that time, we've gotten plenty of random Bat-jets and Luthor mechs, but not one single invisible jet. That drought ends now. Due to arrive on New Year's Day, Gorilla Grodd Goes Bananas, a new DC Comics Super Heroes Lego set, will feature Wonder Woman and her invisible jet. Also, Gorilla Grodd, the Flash, Captain Cold, a banana truck driver, and of course, Batman.
Earlier this week, the official German Lego site posted its catalog for the first half of 2015. While ordinary this wouldn't be a big deal, the preview book actually featured the first look at the company's planned Lego Marvel Super Heroes Avengers: Age of Ultron sets.
