Is Super Heroes The New Star Wars?
Lego Star Wars sets have been the flagship for TLG for many year now, and have really bolstered TLG's bottom line. I have to admit that our kids were really into the SW sets and have quite a few between them. However, it seems that now the Super Hero themed sets are of more interest to them and have basically supplanted the SW sets as their favorite sets and the minifigures of choice.
Personally, I also like the Super Hero sets better than the SW set because I grew up reading the Marvel comic books (oh, how I wish I still had those!). It may be that the upcoming release of the UCS Tumbler also signals a shift in TLG's priorities. As a side note, I think releasing a UCS Tumbler is a BRILLIANT move by TLG and hopefully leads to other UCS Super Hero sets.
Sure...the upcoming SW movie will certainly renew the interest in the SW themed sets, but it just seems that the basic SW sets are just getting tiresome, repetitive or just plain weird. I mean...Darth Revan?
With the meager dollars, pounds, euros, etc. available for Lego sets, are others focusing more on SH or SW?
