    The Soul gem & the Time gem...

    We'll need two figs, one with the Gauntlet & one without.
    Hands are separate pieces for big figs, so we don't need two. Thanos just needs to come with an extra Gauntlet piece that can be swapped out for one hand.

    A Gambit and I wouldn't asked for anything from LEFO again, sufficing myself with whatever they see fit to make. 
  • VorpalRyuVorpalRyu AustraliaMember Posts: 2,248
    ^ Gambit would have to be one of the characters along with Rogue I most want to see from the X-Men, although, a certain 5 year old in the house is wanting Colossus & Angel. At the very least I'd like to see TLG eventually release sets containing all the characters that featured in Marvel Superheroes video game, including Banner, Ross, Parker, Phoenix (maybe have the red or white costume so as not to annoy the owners of the SDCC one) & Stan Lee. They have to do a Stan Lee minifig.

    I'm just glad that the next few Marvel sets include a few other Spider-Man variants & I'm looking forward to the Ant-Man set, just a pity there's no Wasp.

    DC: Bizarro, Hawk Girl, Guy Gardner, Ra's Al Guhl, Clayface (mini and big), Solomon Grundy (bigfig), Alfred, Atrocitus, Dr. Fate, THE QUESTION (all in caps because the one I want the most).

    Marvel: Abomination (bigfig), Professor X, Colossus, Kraven, Calypso, Dr. Strange, Agent Coulson, Galactus (as a building set), Silver Surfer, Enchantress

    And then some random, lame, and totally forgotten villain, like this guy: http//marvel.com/universe/Monocle

    I'd love minifigures of Static and Gear as they appeared in the cartoon Static Shock! I really enjoyed that show growing up, and learning more about its creator Dwayne McDuffie helped me respect it all the more. It's rare that you see a kids' superhero cartoon with such a profound social conscience.

    The Jokerland set also has figures representing characters from another superhero cartoon I loved, Teen Titans. It would be great if in the future we also got a figure of Raven and maybe even a new version of Cyborg based more on his appearance in that cartoon (loved that blue and white armor color scheme).

    Those are some of the only superhero characters I have a particularly strong emotional connection to. I've never read a lot of superhero comics and I'm woefully behind on superhero movies and TV series (I did recently finish watching the first season of Arrow with my parents, which was amazing, but I can't think of a lot of characters from it who I'd be anxious to see in minifigure form).

    Branching out a bit, I like Neil Gaiman's The Sandman series and would love minifigures of the Endless (particularly Death and Dream), but I know that would never happen officially since it's not child-friendly. And it's not really a superhero comic anyway, even though it was basically a reboot of one of their classic superhero properties.

    From Marvel properties, a Professor X minifigure would be nice, but that has less to do with any personal attachment to the character and more with feeling that LEGO sets could do with more wheelchairs and disabled characters in general.

    The 2 Sandman comics arnt at all related other than taking place in the same universe- they arnt the same character and it for sure isn't even close to a reboot.
    I could be wrong but I don't even remember Morpheus being called "Sandman" even once
    Honestly, Gaiman clearly wrote one of the greatest comic series that will ever exist but I think I'd like the Wesley Dodds fig better
    I'd also take the Corinthian in a second- though serial killers of children are probably off the list
    Ha!

  • SolariousSolarious Kalamazoo, MI, USAMember Posts: 317
    Seriously?
    How on Earth do they plan on even doing a fraction of that story in a 2-2 1/2 hour film?
    MAYBE the first story arch but even then Gaiman must be as horrified as Moore when they made V (or even Watchmen which is probably a closer analogy)

    Perhaps "reboot" was the wrong word, since Neil Gaiman's Sandman was more a complete re-imagining of the concept. But from a marketing standpoint it WAS renewing a previously disused DC Comics trademark that had once belonged to a superhero character, which is what I was trying to get at.

    Morpheus is called the Sandman at least once, by Mad Hettie in issue 3 ("Dream a Little Dream of Me"), though naturally she is using this term in the folkloric sense rather than as any kind of superhero code-name.

    I want to see an Alfred, and I want to see a non-movie, non-swat Jim Gordon figure. I'd like some more JLU figures like Animal Man, Star Girl, and Hawkgirl. An Atom big-fig would be neat, but few people would get that.

    I want Jarvis, though in the movies Jarvis is an AI, so I guess that would not happen.

    Jarvis the Butler is a character on ABC's Agent Carter, which was just just renewed for a second season. Though it's highly unlikely, he could theoretically appear in an Agent Carter set. Personally, I'd love to see this happen, but the characters are easy enough to make MOC versions of. 

    My wishlist, off the top of my head, would include Moon Knight, Scarlet Witch (original comic version), Lady Sif (In general, more Asgard stuff-- maybe Malakith and some Dark Elves?), more SHIELD Agents (Phil Coulson, Maria Hill in an affordable set?), Inhumans (upcoming movie so maybe?), and just for laughs, Squirrel Girl.

    How on Earth has nobody listed Squirel Girl by now? By far the most powerful mutant on the planet. And Luke Cage's babysitter.

    Well Squirrel Girl would be easy to make these days as there are at least two different tail pieces they could use (Rocket's and Skinnet's).
  • VorpalRyuVorpalRyu AustraliaMember Posts: 2,248
    ^ Squirrel Girl was in the Lego Marvel Superheroes game, my declaration of wanting to eventually see sets for all the characters in that game, I meant every single character. If they do a Silver Surfer, TLG will have to make it chrome like that Stormtrooper polybag, he should be SHINY AS!

    Thanos and Apocalypse bigfigs. I would think they are almost a given (wishful thinking).

    X-Men (Beast, Cyclops, Prof X, Jean Grey, Colossus) in their comic book form. 

    A hawkeye with his cowl.

    A decent Deathstroke. The newly released one is BAD. I like the version from the video game. 

    A reverse Flash.

    Ghost Rider on his bike!!!

    Hobgoblin and a new Killer Croc.

    Daredevil.


  • SolariousSolarious Kalamazoo, MI, USAMember Posts: 317
    Oops
    There was a previous Squirel Girl mention
    I was just kidding about her being the most powerful mutant anyway (that would be Franklin Richards or Mr Immortal)
    I guess she did take out Galactus once

    I kinda gave up on hoping to collect X-Men
    The most we can seem to hope for is a relatively small set every couple of years
    And I imagine the increase in Marvel MCU movies will only hurt this
    Too bad too- they appear (so far anyway) to be the best shot at hoping for actual Marvel comic inspired sets

    With that said- +1 for Apocalypse and I think Xavier will have to show up sooner or later (should have been in the last set instead of that unecassary, lame Magneto remake)

    They haven't made a Sabertooth minifigure have they? He seems to me to be someone who should have a minifigure since he is Wolverine's arch enemy and was in 2 X-men movies.

    List of characters who have been defeated by Squirrel Girl (in no particular order):
    Doctor Doom
    M.O.D.O.K
    Thanos
    Deadpool
    Wolverine
    Fin Fang Foom
    You were right the first time, she is the most powerful mutant.

    As for minifigs I would love to see, I'd have to go with Nightcrawler, X-23, Iceman (with as many trans parts as possible), Squirrel Girl, and Cable (with a chrome arm).

    Oh, and a build-able Galactus.

    I'm sure these have probably been said but I'm trying to think of the classic MARVEL staples that should be made.

    The Fantastic Four seems to be one of the major teams missing. Does LEGO have any ties to the new movie?

    From the original X-men, Beast, Angel, Iceman, Prof. X.  2 Magnetos and no Prof. X? Who's keeping this guy in check?

    From the second wave of X-men, Nightcrawler and Colossus are the major players missing.

    Juggernaut could make a  good bigfig.

    Every character Minimates has made that LEGO hasn't.

    It's often bought up, but the X-men and Fantastic Four films generally have patchy toy licensing because of disagreements between Marvel and Fox.

    True, but at least X-men gets a set here and there...I think Marvel at least accepts that they don't have X-men rights and won't for a long time....Fantastic Four they are going out of their way to make sure there is no merchandising presence. It is certainly a way to get the rights back if the FF flops and it could.

    They are certainly setting up FF to fail. I haven't seen a trailer, action figures or anything for FF.

    Personally, I think the DC Universe is going to hurt the Batman franchise as well.
  • ShibShib UKMember Posts: 5,218
    I actually think that of all the DC franchises that WB are trying to force out the Batman franchise is likely to do best out of DoJ - the style works for Batman, dark and gritty. All the colourful characters that they've washed the colour from not so much.

    I wouldn't have been surprised if we got a classic comic book style Fantastic Four set to cash in on the upcoming film without directly endorsing it - in the same way that we got a sentinel based X-men set around the time of DOFP - but we almost certainly would have heard about it by now. 

    What will be interesting will be what Fox do if this FF reboot flops - if it does I can see them trying to sell the rights back to Marvel at an inflated cost - threatening to repeat the cycle of forcing through reboots every time the rights might expire. To be fair, with X-men and Deadpool they've got some strong franchises that are working well, if FF keeps failing for them the only reason to keep forcing the films is to spite Marvel studios.

  • BrickDancerBrickDancer Dunes of TatooineMember Posts: 3,639
    ^^I pray so @Shib. I'm hoping that the FF4 goes back to Marvel asap after this upcoming bomb in August goes off.

    Same for X-men after Age of Apocalypse, Wolverine 3 and Deadpool are released. However, they've earned their license to freedom of creativity for a little bit longer with the last 2 or 3 films. But what I wouldn't give to see them fully under the MCU umbrella.

    I'm content with the route Sony finally took in letting Marvel-Disney create the framework for them to play with Spidey, hopefully they'll get it right this time with the Mouse's blessing.
  • SumoLegoSumoLego New YorkMember Posts: 11,949
    Personally, I think they should maintain differentiation between mutants and the MCU. Each is a large enough franchise with a wide variety of characters.

    I happen to also think that Spider-Man should also occupy it's own universe. He's a large enough property to command its own franchise. Combining everything for the sake of combining them only dilutes the product.
  • MissKittyFantasticoMissKittyFantastico AustraliaMember Posts: 197
    I'm fine with the X-Men staying off in their own verse - honestly, I've never felt that the prejudice themes regarding mutants have sat well with how non-mutant 'powered' beings are handled in the rest of the MCU - but Spidey's fully part of my mental Marvel New York landscape, I have no problem picturing him part of the MCU, and I don't feel either would suffer as a result.  Same for the FF, if anything I think their background and situation would benefit from existing in a world of heroes, rather than them (and their associated villains) being the only ones of their kind.

    Having said that, I genuinely liked the most recent FF trailer.  I'm as surprised as anyone, given how dour and unlikable the first trailer seemed, and I'll grant there's a good chance that this is just the result of the PR peeps tailoring the trailer to attract the MCU audience without that really being a faithful representation of the final product... but it felt good to me, it felt like the Fantastic Four, freshened up but the genuine article.  I'm torn between wanting to believe (against reason, perhaps) that is what the film will be like, and wanting Fox to give it up and let Marvel have them back; best case scenario, the film's solid but doesn't rake in the cash for some reason, Fox does a Sony-style deal to share the FF with Marvel, and Marvel opts for a soft reboot that ditches whatever elements openly conflict with MCU continuity while moving forward rather than retelling the entire thing, a la Incredible Hulk.
  • VorpalRyuVorpalRyu AustraliaMember Posts: 2,248
    Personally, I want to see Marvel be given back all of its properties, between Fox & Sony, there have been a few serious issues with their approaches to making movies of the comics they were given the rights to. Fox's incessant claiming to hold the rights to any & all Marvel characters they can the moment the words mutant or mutate come up has led to a mutantless MCU (& caused Marvel issues getting Fox to accept that Quick & Scarlet were Avengers first). I'm not completely blind I know Marvel were responsible for IM3, but I think its time for everyone to hand in the rights to Marvel properties, so they have a true shared MCU...

  • SumoLegoSumoLego New YorkMember Posts: 11,949
    Those licensing agreements with Fox and Sony kept the company alive during their bad years.

    A necessary evil - but a binding deal nonetheless...
  • monkey_roomonkey_roo Member Posts: 1,361
    I don't see the MCU suffering from a lack of 'Mutants' in fact, quite the opposite, if you tried to bind the x-men and avengers together on screen you could well overload the narrative and make a real mess, it is hard enough doing what they already are.

    likewise I think for the most part the X-Men films are good and Fox is doing a solid job (X3 and Origins aside, they weren't so great) and Deadpool looks like it will be great fun and certainly a film that Marvel could never make.

    i think having Spiderman back in the fold is good but there is not rush for more right now and even if Marvel had The FF I suspect they would be relegated to part players in the bigger play, in the same way the Hulk and Widow are right now.

    either way, I am sure we will see Lego versions of almost all the core characters over the years as no one wants the line to end and they will want to keep fans interested.
  • LostInTranslationLostInTranslation UKMember Posts: 5,520
    @MissKittyFantastico - I liked the trailer I saw for FF before Age of Ultron too.
    I might go and see it out of curiosity though it'll depend on what kind of reviews it gets.

    Ultimately, I would prefer all character rights to go back to Marvel, just so all characters have the potential to be Lego-ised
    chuckp
  • ShibShib UKMember Posts: 5,218
    I think if the x-men rights ever did revert back to Marvel the sensible thing would be to reboot the whole MCU at that point, suddenly adding mutants would be difficult, especially considering all the worldwide events they've already covered with no sign of x-men of the brotherhood getting involved.

    To be honest I don't see it happening any time soon though, the x-men franchise is solid, even the heaviest criticised x-men films did well so Fox won't be giving up that cherry any time soon.

    I've chosen to pretty much ignore FF until I see it - which won't be at the cinema, which is too expensive for me these days - the one trailer for it I have seen didn't inspire confidence for me personally, it looked a bit too much like Man of Steel was to the Superman franchise (again one that really didn't work for me personally)

    The funny thing with the FF franchise is that this isn't the first time a film has been hurried through for the sake of keeping the rights, fans of Arrested Development might recognise the story, because they referenced it - and it was based on true events.
  • yg77yg77 Member Posts: 32
    X-men could be realistically incorporated into the MCU by claiming that they made an effort to stay "underground" for all these years, especially since they saw the persecution of powered people ect.  They could even piggyback off the DOFP storyline, with the time-travel angle explaining why we haven't heard of mutants earlier; maybe a character has flashbacks of avengers and xmen interacting in the pre time travel storyline, etc

  • SumoLegoSumoLego New YorkMember Posts: 11,949
    I really hope they avoid time-travel storyline in the MCU.
  • ShibShib UKMember Posts: 5,218
    I accept that they could work the x-men into the MCU, but given how long the current story run has been going and how far ahead it's planned now I'd say that the easiest way to add them would be to do a universe ending story (my marvel knowledge isn't as good as my DC knowledge so I can only cite DC ones) rather than trying to explain any continuity problems away.

    But all of this won't happen any time soon anyway so it's all very moot. 
  • SolariousSolarious Kalamazoo, MI, USAMember Posts: 317
    You can't recall because Marvel doesn't blow up their continuity every few years like DC

    There are a couple "apocalyptic" time or dimension jumps like Age of Ultron or Days of Future Past but I can't think of a single time where Marvel just rewrote everything from the beginning (not counting the Ultimate line which is an alternate universe)

  • VorpalRyuVorpalRyu AustraliaMember Posts: 2,248
    @SumoLego, I'd say no temporal events in the MCU isn't looking good, the Time Gem has yet to come up. Which, @Shib could have been used as a plot device to incorporate the X-Men into the MCU, massive incident occurs, in fixing it, boom!!! Now the X-Men were there all along, the other movies were prior timeline, also allows Marvel to swap out actors not wanting to stick with their characters. Bonus is, even if RDJ, Ruffalo, Evans, etc, bow out, they could come back, alternate timeline crossover point.

    I haven't figured out all the negativity regarding the new FF movie. Other than just mirroring the bad feelings between Marvel and Fox on this one, which is kind of weird since they seem to get along over the X-Men stuff.

    If FF is a bad movie, it will only further hurt the franchise, regardless of Marvel getting rights back for it.  I mean, looking back at the old series, would you have wanted a Jessica Alba Invisible Woman minfig? or a gaseous blob Galactus? Or in another line, a minifig of Sarsgaard's Hector Hammond in the recent Green Lantern? No thanks.

    If the movie bombs, then the franchise may revert back to Marvel, but it will be another decade before it resurfaces in the general public for another attempt. Maybe if it is good, 20th and Marvel can bury the hatchet and we can get a set or two in the next five years (a la the derivative X-Men sets) with FF minifigs and get a couple of decent movies also.

    It is too bad that they can't play nicer together, but I still hope the movie is good.


    Also, my boys wanted me to say that LEGO needs a Star Sapphire minifig.

  • sonsofscevasonsofsceva 1904 World's FairMember Posts: 539

    @Solarious - The real problem is that DC never does really blow up their timelines, just mangles them further. I was kind of hoping that the Flashpoint thing a few years ago, along with the renumbering of the different lines was going to be a true reboot of the DCU to get stories and timelines all officially in order.

    Just think: Flash 'fixes' the timeline, but it isn't quite the same, and he is the only one who remembers the differences between the old and the new, with comments no one understands but him and jokes about things that don't exist anymore that he forgets have changed. He gets there just as the heroes are emerging, and knows people before the know him or each other. That could have been interesting, and he could have been an accessible and fun 'tour guide' as the readers' 'in' to the new continuity; helpful for new readers, with nods to those long-time fans, and made Flash an ongoing important central character.

    But, again, they played with it and then only half-committed and continued with a big mess.

  • SolariousSolarious Kalamazoo, MI, USAMember Posts: 317
    Isn't their whole new storyline (Convergance or whatever) all about finally pulling together all of the various continuities that destroyed the world? (Crisis, zero Hour, New 52, ect)

    Ive never been into much non-Vertigo DC (except Ragman- doubt we'll EVER see that fig) so I'm not at a all familiar.

    Kingdom Come was good though.
    And I read a lot of other Elseworlds stories.
    Let's see those figs.

    I almost decided to start collecting pieces to do a kingdom Come Green Lantern base (New Oa I believe it was called) but put a halt on it before I even started because I figured all that green would get old fast.
  • vwong19vwong19 San DiegoMember Posts: 1,174
    Just saw the Fantastic Four preview (didn't realize there was one). The cast looks terrible and too young. I don't have high hopes for the movie.

    As far as Lego minifigures give me the comic version any day. The movie versions blow (ie Vision, Scarlet Witch, Hawkeye). Don't get me wrong I will buy them for completeness...
