@CCC What do you mean by the Arkham Joker? I assume you mean from the arkham asylum set rather than the arkham games, and from the mention of burgess Meredith I assume you mean penguin - if you do mean arkham asylum set Penguin I'd say it's a bit of a generic Penguin design so probably based on mixed sources, mainly the comics.
Bit worrying no mention of lego support. Does this mean mega blocks are cashing in?
Don't forget that every film like this gets loads of different toy companies competing for different rights...e.g Mattel having hot wheel might decide that the Batmobile is the main thing they want. But Lego could still do a Batmbile as a construction toy as it's a different type of toy. I try not to think too much about the various agreements these days it's all too complicated and I'm no lawyer!
I think it would be cool if it had PF and lights.
(Mods btw this is the 2015 discussion topic, the other topic is about SDCC as a event.)
It does give me hope that we might get to see some more non Batman specific villains too. I'd love a Reverse Flash (lets face it they already have a mould for the Flash's cowl to reuse) and Gorilla Grodd to go with Flash, and Green Arrow with either a Deathstroke or Deadshot. I'm not going to expect too many per wave, but it would be nice to think based on the latest patterns that there will be at least one set with a non Batman/Bat Family hero in each wave of sets.
Will be curious to see if we also get a set without batman, like the Superman/Wonder Woman set, would be interesting if they did New 52 style Superman and Wonder Woman vs some other random villain in the same wave as this Green Lantern set.
It makes sense. Why re-release a minifigure that already exists, albeit in small quantities when for the same cost they could just introduce a brand-new minifigure with just as much appeal? If it DOES turn out that for some reason kids desperately want characters like Shazam, Batman of Zur-En-Arrh, or Spider-Woman, there's nothing stopping the LEGO Group from introducing new, different versions of those characters.
Some people say it wouldn't be the same, that the versions of the characters that got released at Comic-Con are the quintessential versions. As far as costumes alone are concerned, maybe they're right. But just look at how many different Star Wars minifigure variants there have been that are ostensibly meant to depict the same exact costume. People can bicker all they want about which Stormtrooper or Luke Skywalker variants are the best, but the simple truth is that translating a character into a minifigure is not an exact science and there are numerous ways to depict any given character or costume.
Gorilla Grodd is coming - Huw just put it up on the front page.
Presumably Gorilla Grodd will be a maxifig.
#76026 Gorilla Grodd Goes Bananas has Grodd as a bigfig, a car, Wonder Woman with an Invisible Jet made of clear peices, Batman with a mech suit, and The Flash.
#76027 Black Manta Deep Sea Strike has a Black Manta sub, a Bat-Sub, Aquaman, and Robin.
#76028 Darkseid Invasion has Darkseid as a bigfig, a Javelin spaceship, a Brainiac drone, Hawkman (or someone else with wings), and Superman (which could be a placeholder for Supergirl).
Note that there are typically placeholder figures in the retailer catalog, so some of the figure descriptions may be inaccurate.
