    Fantastic! I would not have expected to see a Martian Manhunter in sets any time in the next few years just because he's not nearly as well-known as a lot of "costumed" superheroes like Superman, Batman, Flash, Aquaman, and even Green Lantern. He might have shown up as a Comic-Con fig because those have occasionally been more obscure characters or costumes that you need a bit of "nerd cred" to be familiar with, but a GWP polybag is even better because it means wider availability.

    I definitely agree, Green Lantern is now the main Justice League character in need of a wider release (preferably in a non-movie-inspired version of his costume like the others). No idea when or how that might come about. I know the disappointment from the Green Lantern movie put a damper on toy manufacturers' desire to produce toys for retail sale based on that character, but since the LEGO Group has gone ahead and made figures for regular release of such characters as Aquaman and now Martian Manhunter, I have no doubt in my mind that completing the original Justice League is a goal they have, whether an immediate or eventual one.

    Any Justice League fans able to shed some light on what depiction this particular version of his costume ultimately comes from?

    I am very excited to get my hands on that Minifigure, a great addition to the growing Justice League. Cyborg and Green Lantern are now the only two I am really desperate for.

    But still, I am desperate for more Batman villains...

    So does this mean I have to find my way to a LEGO shop, or will I be able to get this online? I've got my eye on a few Superhero sets (that I was hoping to get on sale at some point), but I'll bite for the MM...

    Great looking Figure. I agree with Rex101: Cyborg would be nice and all 4 Human GLs even better and must haves

    CRAP!!! I was just setting my budget for February.... Where's that money tree?!?!?! Now I have to spend, spend and spend some more to get this. Well hope the kid's good grades keep coming.

    Wow...sooo unexpected and so great. Like someone said above, this screams SDCC more than store freebie so kudos Lego!!!!

    Here are some images: to me it looks like it is based on the new DC52/ Injustice Gods game figures (first 2 images) not on the JLU figure in 3rd/4th images. I wish they had made or make the JLU version and the clear/transparent version would be great too.

  • GoldchainsGoldchains Member Posts: 795
    That is completely awesome. We should see new DC and Marvel Superhero sets around that time as well, and if we get double VIP points? How can you go wrong? I can't wait! I want it now!

    Here's hoping. But wouldn't it be on the calendar?
  • NellyNelly Member Posts: 77
    It has been double VIP the last few years, but not this year it seems. I was hoping to make a dent in my exclusives wanted list in March with the double VIP but I can't hold out much longer.

    Since nearly all of Lego's in store promotions also apply online; to ensure all customers get fair access to perks, I'm sure you will be able to reeve this GWP when you spend over $75 online!

    I always thought the only way they would only ever put The Martian Manhunter as a Comic-Con exclusive. I then saw this thread and actually gasped out loud :D
  • DougTemplarDougTemplar Edinburgh, ScotlandMember Posts: 546
    Stupid question time as I normally don't pay too much attention to these sort of things - BUT IT'S MARTIAN MANHUNTER!

    Will this offer also be available in the UK?

    Isn't it May that's usually Double VIP points?

    Drat....no major purchasing for me for awhile. Sadly I'll have to miss out on Martian Man Hunter...which is a shame because I'd love to have all the big seven justice leaguers.

    Hey now, it is easy to come up with an excuse. Buy future birthday gifts for any and everyone you can think of. Christmas even. Buy something as tradebait then list it here. Buy something for FairyBricks. Buy something just because it is Lego!

    You will regret it 6 months later when the only way to get one is paying through the nose for it on eBay/BL/BO. - Guy who wanted a VW van poly but didn't get one and is not willing to pay $30 for one.

    Wow that's out of the blue.

    I know nothing about Martian Manhunter but he looks brilliant and will be a great addition to the Superhero figs. I will definitely be waiting for this to get any of the new Marvel/DC sets.
  • dannyrwwdannyrww WisconsinMember Posts: 1,333
    The reason is easy...it is having the money that is hard :)
  • hoyatableshoyatables Northern Virginia, USAMember Posts: 863
    I seem to always remember March as double VIP. Usually also had a coupon to pair with it from the winter catalog in past years....

    Quoting the wise words of @piratemania7 from the purchase-regret thread...

    For me personally, any set that I have bought to "bring me over" the threshold on [email protected] to get free shipping or the free poly. I look afterwards and kick myself for not just paying for shipping or getting the poly on BL or something similar. Also, any set that is outside of the core themes I am committed too; once in a while I just want to splurge and get something new, but I always end up regretting it!

    You should be able to find them on ebay by Mid-March in the $10-15 range. Possibly even less. Just make sure you look for them while the promotion is still going.

    The Infamous Matt doesn't know something or have a witty comment to make! *Gasp* :P

    I think this looks excellent, Quite surprised they chose him in all honesty but I won't complain! Granted I don't have 75 dollars worth of stuff I want sooo ebay it is

    hmm no chance the new Super Heroes sets come out in March? would make sense to offer a minifig when they are actually released lol. I got excited when I saw the listings already on TRU. My daughter has been wanting the Cinderella castle set so I could hold off on that till march I suppose.
  • RomanticWarriorRomanticWarrior United StatesMember Posts: 248
    I believe the two new DC sets will be released in March, because they are shown on the (US) calendar. In fact, the Steamroller is the main image above the calendar.

    @veign06 #76017 Capt America and #76018 Hulk release in March.

    @tmgm528

    :o)

    I originally posted something along lines of it being odd that they'd choose to release this character as a promo without the associated 'poster boy' Green Lantern - I was mistakenly thinking this guy is part of the wider green lantern stories - which could've meant people might not bother with the promo if there's no green lantern... and then if they did do green lantern set(s) later, some people might pass on those, if having missed the promo team member.

    ... but then i googled and found this guy isn't a 'green lantern' side-character as such, but part of the justice league. So i retracted my comment, leaving I don't know my comics.

    Yep those are the ones...the catalog image said April but if these are available in March, I am set :)
