Marvel Superheroes 2015

LostInTranslationLostInTranslation UKMember Posts: 5,558
I searched but didn't find a thread dedicated to this though I know I read some rumoured set names somewhere. Avengers Tower was one I think, as well as the rumoured UCS Helicarrier. Anyone got a link to those?

Anyway, I just watched the teaser trailer for Age of Ultron and it looks EPIC!
I loved the dark tone which was emphasised by the eerie music ("I got no strings..."). I hope we get a decent Ultron minifigure because he looks great. Plus of course Hulkbuster :-)

I can't wait for us to get images of the sets we'll be getting for this theme (mainly for the minifigs it must be said).

Until we do, what are others' thoughts on the trailer? What are the latest set rumours?

    My thoughts on 2015 Marvel sets are:

    UCS Helicarrier, please tell me this is true and really coming!
    We'll get Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch minifigs!
    We'll get a new Hawkeye variant that is closer to his comic version!
    I hope the Hulkbuster Suit is a maxifig and not brick-built!
    Ultron and his Ultron-goons might look too similar to each other in fig form.

    The trailer has me wondering what the heck is wrong with Bruce Banner, a case of Ebola giving him upset stomach? And I thought Spader's voice as Ultron was too normal and human-like, that it should have been more electronic. Heck even Bane had a cooler voice through the respirator in TDKR. I want to see Widow's early pre-spy life, possibly as a ballerina in training?

    I hope there is a better distribution of baddies this time instead of a Loki in every set. Never enough cannon-fodder types in the Lego sets.

    ^thing is with Ultron and Ultron drones looking essentially the same it should be more likely this time round to get an ultron drone army.

    There was a list of supposed sets doing the rounds but anywhere I've seen it posted was just people linking other forums etc - which I'm not about to start doing too.

    While i remain sceptical on any rumours until theres any official announcement i can see the logic in a UCS Helicarrier, if I were coordinating Marvel's merchandise I'd be looking at the UCS Tumbler and asking why there isn't a Marvel equivalent on the shelves, and the Helicarrier is the best MCU content for UCS treatment so far. If anyone is hoping for that Lego Ideas behemoth of a helicarrier I'd be prepared to be disappointed, it's too big in my opinion.

    I just hope that Black Widow is in a more affordable set this time, I missed out on the quintjet and she remains the only original avenger I'm missing. I'd also love to see a battle pack, something in the way of two Ultron drones vs two shield agents (hinting at one of them looking like Hill or Coulson, unless we see them with a ucs helicarrier I can't se them getting made otherwise) but I fear that a pipe dream.

    If there's not some sort of brick-built hulk-buster I'd be surprised. Probably (or rather hopefully) in a set with a new hulk variant and probably some sort of vehicle with another fig so TLG can jack up the price to a £35/40 set.
  • richlrichl NYCMember Posts: 246
    There's a clone brand moulded bigfig Hulkbuster out there - wouldn't be surprised if it was based on an unreleased LEGO figure.

    I'd be kind of disappointed if the Hulkbuster wasn't brick-built, as it's big enough (larger than Hulk) to warrant more than a moulded bigfigure. I'd rather have a slick, poseable LEGO model.

    I don't know if there's any chance we'll get an MCU version of Nick Fury in these sets, as supposedly he doesn't have a huge role in this new movie. I think SHIELD agents (Maria Hill, Phil Coulson, etc.) were among other characters missing from The Avengers sets, somewhat understandably. I hope we get some characters' alter-egos this time around; we did get a version of Tony Stark in the Iron Man 3 sets, but I'd especially like to see Steve Rogers and Bruce Banner somewhere in the mix this time. And Black Widow needs actual red hair, and not the same mould they've been using for every female character. And Hawkeye needs accurate hair as well.

    I would think we'd be getting a Klaw minifig as well. Just don't know if it is going to be pre-transformation and post-transformation.
  • BrickDancerBrickDancer Dunes of TatooineMember Posts: 3,639
    Yes Klaw would be a nice one. But I would prefer the pre-transformation version if this is how the post-version would end up looking like:

    So yesterday Marvel announced a host of new titles up to 2019: Dr Strange, (female) Captain Marvel, GotG2, Cap. 3 (featuring Iron Man apparently?!), Thor 3, Black Panther, Inhumans and a two part Avengers finale - Infinity War.

    Sounds incredible. I really hope the licensing deal with Lego carries on throughout Phase 3 so we'd be getting a plethora of new minifigs. I really hope I don't have to wait til 2018 for a Thanos bigfig though...

  • ArtfulDodgerArtfulDodger Member Posts: 106
    I don't think you'll have to wait until 2018 for a Thanos minifig, but you may have to wait until then for a Thanos minifig with an Infinity Gauntlet
  • ShibShib UKMember Posts: 5,319
    Thanos is a hard one to call, until he does more than sit in his throne grinning and plotting there's no chance of getting him. there's potential for him to be involved in Guardians 2, but I'd assume Infinity war.
  • BumblepantsBumblepants DFWMember Posts: 6,364
    ^there is a very good chance of an exclusive Comic-Con figure of him grinning and plotting that would cost 4 figures on ebay soon after...
  • Bosstone100Bosstone100 USAMember Posts: 1,422
    The female Captain Marvel is Warbird and I believe she was just outted as an Inhuman. I already picked up a custom of her (and quite a few others).
  • ShibShib UKMember Posts: 5,319

    ^there is a very good chance of an exclusive Comic-Con figure of him grinning and plotting that would cost 4 figures on ebay soon after...

    unlikely, he'd need a custom hairpiece at the very least, comicon exclusives always use existing parts.
  • jasorjasor United StatesMember Posts: 839
    over/under that Thor will be a girl after Thor 3?

    I hope the Hulkbuster armor is brickbuilt, with insertable Iron Man minifig. I doubt that happens, but it would be the most faithful to the movie.
  • LostInTranslationLostInTranslation UKMember Posts: 5,558
    ^ They do like a Mech at Lego, so I'd hope they could come up with something decent that's brick built..
    Actually, Ninjago set #70500 might be a good place to start as a basis for making a Hulkbuster.... might have to give that a go.
  • ShibShib UKMember Posts: 5,319
    First thing that came to my mind for brick building a hulk buster was the Chima Legends Beasts Gorrilla, they definitely can do something mech like at that scale but I think that as licensing agreements often require the IP owner to sign off on designs Marvel might push for a big fig to make it look more like the film. I can't imagine what the set would look like if the only elements to build are small scenery pieces to get smashed by hulk & hulk buster.
    I'm hoping for something similar to #76026 Grodd goes bananas as an equivalent, with the building element being the Hulkbuster and maybe a bit of scenery - with the Hulkbuster hopefully looking a darn sight better than that bat mech.
  • jasorjasor United StatesMember Posts: 839
    so, what's the point in owning #76012 : Batman: The Riddler Chase, if I can get a Flash in #76026 :Gorilla Grodd Goes Bananas...and keep my Riddler from #6857 : The Dynamic Duo Funhouse Escape without yet another Batman....

    I believe I may have learned all the set names, but until they are actually announced I am not going to leak much of what I now know. #76029 Iron Man vs. Ultron is probably going to be the £10 set...but there still #76030, #76031, #76032, #76038 and #76041. That's the whole range, and there IS a Hulk Buster set.

  • LostInTranslationLostInTranslation UKMember Posts: 5,558
    I think this thread should be retitled "2015 and beyond" given how far Marvel are planning! Just read that Benedict Cumberbatch is finally officially confirmed as playing Dr Strange in 2016. I don't know anything about that character but I love BC so I'm very happy he'll be part of the MCU.

    Was also happy to discover a few days ago that Idris Elba will be in Avengers 2. I hope he's not just cameoing, I want a Bifrost Lego set with a Heimdall minifig!

    I may be getting confused between Thor 1 and 2, but wasn't the bifrost destroyed at the end of 2? Trapping Thor in Asgard and hence explaining why he didn't turn up to help out Iron Man 3 or Cap 2. So if Thor is to get to earth for Avengers2:AOE, then I'm guessing Heimdall will need to assist him in someway, but probably not much beyond that... (doesn't rule out a minifig though!)

    Boo. Forgot about that. Can't they rebuild it with magic or something?

    I'll take a small Loki vs Heimdall square-off in the throne room set instead.
    As long as Joss doesn't kill off Heimdall. It's the sort of thing he'd do though.

    (Off topic but I am currently about halfway through a biography of Joss Whedon (Geek King of the Universe; bought in an Amazon lightning deal) and am completely engrossed in it. I've loved his stuff since the early days of Buffy, though not watched it for a while, and the book is rekindling my love of his work so I'll be a having a Buffy dvd marathon over Christmas, I think. I've got Whedonverse MOC ideas running through my head too so that's another project to add to the list!
    Would recommend the book to any Whedon fan, btw)
    carlqjasorAndor
  • monkey_roomonkey_roo Member Posts: 1,392
    I'll go off topic to comment on the Whedonverse. he has been writing/directing for a while now and with a few surprises on his CV, Toy Story, Alien Resurection being the biggest, obviously Buffy, Angel, Dollhouse and Firefly are the big hits (with fans if not studios) on the TV side, I can't say Agents of Shield yet as the jury is still out.

    Actually you could argue some Toy Story sets could be part of the Whedonverse already. Love to see some classic Buffy sets, that would be awsome.

    Apologies for going way, way off topic there, so ummm... age of Ultron sets will be great.
  • LostInTranslationLostInTranslation UKMember Posts: 5,558
    I'd already considered doing a Toy Story scene as one of my Whedonverse mocs :-)
    I'm definitely tempted to do some classic Buffy scenes in Lego. It's funny, reading about Joss and how he writes these amazing strong female characters made me realise that pretty much all my moc plans are based on female characters too - really would be a nice overarching theme as and when I actually get some of them built!

    I haven't seen Dollhouse, is it any good?
    Might take a punt and buy the DVD just to see what it's like.
    Just got up to Firefly being cancelled in the book :'(

    I wonder what the HYDRA/Avengers and Avengers Tower sets will be like.

    I'm calling Cap in the HYDRA set, maybe Strucker and one of the twins (I'd be shocked if they put them both in the same set as that would defy LEGO logic).

    If the quinjet set is good enough, maybe I won't go out of my way to make a modified one based on the Avengers out of the old set.

    Can we get a superhero CMF already?
    There are just too many Heroes and villains that would be awesome to have but will likely otherwise never happen because sets are already filled with yet another Ironman, Batman, Captain America, ect.

    Marvel or DC- I don't care
    A set of each in a year would be best obviously and I would be way way way more interested in this then yet another Simpsons set I don't care one bit about

    Hell, they could blow a whole line on just the Green (and other color) Lantern Corps or (more in line with the original topic) X-Men, Avengers other then the big 5 or 6, or simply all villains

    It would only work if they have characters that cannot or most likely won't ever appear in a set. Now that we are getting over 30 superhero films in the next 6 years it shown that we will get those new characters so there is no need.
  • ShibShib UKMember Posts: 5,319
    ^I'd have to disagree, if anything more movies creates more variation and more demand for sideline characters. Look how many characters were not in Guardians of the Galaxy sets that could have been. I know that a lot of people wanted a Yondu mini figure and never got one.
    Then there are characters that will be in films that are not child friendly despite having comic/cartoon versions that are child friendly.

    The big thing on those superhero CMF lines that a lot of people (myself included) would love is that pesky old licensing agreement. We don't know what TLG are ALLOWED to do within these agreements. Personally I'd love it if they could alternate CMF lines to Standard then licenced etc but in the mean time I'm just going to be happy with all the new mini figures we know are coming our way!
    andhe
  • SolariousSolarious Kalamazoo, MI, USAMember Posts: 317
    Yeah- More movies equals more Thor and IronMan variants

    As for licensing I think the X-Men sets show that (at least that sub-theme) do have the ability to be drawn from the comics and not specific films or television

    And DC seems to have an even looser set of standards then that- a lot more non-film sets that is.

    It could work
    And it's not just because I want a Howard the Duck fig so bad for some reason

  • BOBJACK_JACKBOBBOBJACK_JACKBOB ScotlandMember Posts: 543
    I think the reason there seems to more variety, especially next year, in DC mini-figs (e.g. Hawkman, Martian Manhunter, Cyborg) as opposed to Marvel figs is because more marvel sets are based on movies as marvel has had more movies out recently than DC.

    I would love some comic based marvel Figs but I can see why Lego would release a new Iron Man to tie in with avengers 2 over wonderman, another long standing avenger but someone who has yet to appear on film.

    The positive is that with the ever increasing roster of movie superheroes we can expect an ever increasing roster of lego superheroes. It probably won't be long until there are Black Panther and Dr Strange figures for example.
