    @VorpalRyu - congrats on the new addition! Excellent choice of name for you newest, ahem.
    And yes, that is Taskmaster...
  • VorpalRyuVorpalRyu AustraliaMember Posts: 2,315
    Thanks @MaffyD. Getting a real Winter Soldier vibe from this trailer, so I definitely want to go see this one, keeping fingers crossed TLG do at least a couple of sets for this one, I'm wanting minifigs of Red Guardian, Taskmaster, BW in her white suit, Yelena & Ross, plus a couple of those drop-troopers.

    lol no. :P That's one of the pieces introduced as part of this past year's Spider-Man pre-pack. It's meant to be webbing to web his hands together, sort of like the handcuffs piece.

    So with the upcoming release of Spider-Ham in #76151, that gives us the entire Spider-cast of Into the Spider Verse except Peni Parker, am I right?

    I haven't been into the Spider-Man collecting game, but I'm thinking about dipping my toes in with this fun cast of characters.

    I think so! I'd love to get a version of Peni at some point... and the fact that she's one of the few Spider-Man variants who canonically relies on a vehicle seems like it'd make her perfectly suited for a set. Maybe some day...

    After watching the trailers of both Black Widow and Morbious again I wonder what other sets we shall see from those movies.

    Quite a pity; I would have taken Sp//dr over either of the Spider-Man mechs we've gotten the last couple of years. Of course, if we're going to talk Spider-Robots, my pick would be this fellow; I believe he was the model (or modeled after) an impressive robot from the Spider-Man animated series that was on Fox Kids back in the day.

    Arw there any plans to do a marvel cmm set like the dc one?
  • MaffyDMaffyD West YorkshireMember Posts: 2,798
    ^ Million dollar Q, right there. Various things both suggest they will and suggest they won't, in my opinion.
    A DC range makes a Marvel range more plausible. That Lego makes so many Marvel sets which we end up "buying just for the minifigs" makes it less necessary. That Disney have X-Men now, and merch coming in 1-2 years maybe would also be perfect for CMF. And then there's all the films, which are much better served, and make more money, if they are in sets.
    That Marvel have more minifigs than DC despite not having a CMF range and not being included in TLM & TLM2 also speaks volumes (although how many of these are A.I.M. Soldier #1 or S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent #1 or Iron Man suit #whatever may skew those a bit, but how many of the DC ones are Batmans is also a consideration).

    Ultimately, it's anyone's guess...

    So, have the older flip-up-visor style Iron Man helmets been replaced by the new, non-flip helmets that first appeared on Invincible Iron Man in #76077 Detroit Steel Strikes? For a little while they ran concurrently: the new helmet is used for the Mk. 1 figure from the Hall of Armors set while the Mk. 5, Mk. 41, and Mk. 50 use the older flip-ups. And the Rescue Armor Mk. 49 is in the Hulk Helicopter Drop set.

    I ask because as someone who has all the Iron Man armors, having the two different types of helmets is very jarring. Right now, among the group of armors, the only ones with the new helmet are the Mk. 1 which looks ok, and Invincible Iron Man, which doesn't really match between the new helmet and the red, instead of dark red, color scheme. (The Hulk Helicopter Drop is on it's way from Amazon. I'm hoping the purple color scheme will distract from the different helmet style in the same way the very different Mk. 1  makes the helmet less noticeable).

    The pics of the new Marvel sets have both Iron Man and War Machine in the new style helmets where the visors are printed instead of a separate component. Do we think the flip visors are dead? If they are, that gives me a good stopping point to finally make a display frame. I'd been hesitant to do so as new armors kept coming out, but if this new wave of Iron Man/War Machine minifigures is a watershed, then that's a good stopping point.

    Thoughts?
  • nerick906nerick906 Bristol, UKMember Posts: 401
    I got quite genuine question about collecting and displaying minifigs, how are you displaying them? set by set? Shxxx to next? All type of character in one (altough a lot of moving around constantly...) mixing dc and Marvel (im not gonna do that ;)) ? let me know :)
  • MrJacksonMrJackson Member Posts: 403
    I only focused on Iron Man and War Machine. I'm going to use an Ikea Ribba frame like many others but haven't made it yet. However, like I said, if they decide to eliminate the flip visor helmets then that is a good stopping point for me to make the frame.

    That's what I have made, shelves out of lego inside the Ribba frame and I fit around 110 figs in one frame, got 4 of these so far.

    What about public? as I see that promo minifigs like from TRU and Dimensions are not added to the SH pool of figs, and I am just after the best way of arranging them

    The Last edition of Quinjet, is it exclusive to Lego? Where else is it available? As I can see Amazon dont stock it Currently.
  • SumoLegoSumoLego New YorkMember Posts: 13,238
    Are you referring to #76126?

    It was available at Target, Wal-Mart, [email protected], just about everywhere.  As I recall, there was no exclusivity between the retailers on any of the Endgame sets.

    For anyone curious, here is what the new suits look like with the old helmet style:

    All three masks are from 2013 War Machine, Mk2 and Hot Hod have matching helmet while Blue Steel has Iron Patriot/Iron Legion helmet.

    Those look way better. I dislike the new helmet piece. Doesn’t match the MCU.

    Well, it might be because they're not MCU based, I think they're meant to link in with a new game...

    Got my entry in, seems like a pretty good way to handle this particular figure as it requires a certain level of Spiderman fandom and builds hype for the Miles sequel about to launch.

    Just got an Amazon Treasure Truck text message. Looks like today’s deal (at least for my area) is early access for the Black Widow set that was going to be a Con exclusive.  “3 days early” suggests Nov. 1, right?

    Yup just saw that as well. Probably good there is an order limit. Nov 1 is the expected release shown a bit lower on the landing page.

    Thanks for the heads up guys, was able to get mine!  Had to go through the treasure truck to get it, if anyone else is having trouble finding it.  (That is, I couldn't just find it through searching Amazon, I had to go to the Amazon Treasure Truck specifically, and then it was was there.)

    Not sure if I should be happy that I’m not that much of a geek that I didn’t know the following or a geek for researching it.
    Just built the Hulk Helicopter rescue #71644 and loading up the red gauntlet with the stones and also loading up a spare Thanos gauntlet. Noticed the the stones didn’t match and then realised one was right handed and one left handed. Turns out after a quick google that the Stark Gauntlet is in fact right handed and the Thanos gauntlet left handed. Who new 🤷🏻‍♀️

    Apparently emails are being sent out to those who won the Spiderman minifigures from Sony. Winners should get the in 4-6 weeks. The email also say they are worth $4.99 so it's possible some clueless winners will list them based on that valuation.

    Is the Red Guardian an exclusive minifigure?

    (Atleast until they release a random polybag six months after the theatrical release.)

    Technically all three minifigs in that set are exclusive, although I think the Tasmaster fig is just missing his hood

    The Red Guardian minifigure & Black Widow's outfit are exclusive, as Yelena's white outfit has an olive colored torso. That's why I was hoping there'll a follow up set with Widow's outfit & RG, so I can keep the ones in this set on display, but have a set of those minifigs for me & the kids to play with...
