    I too, preferred the first batman movie and definitely enjoyed many of the jokes.
    Bizarro league movie didn't seem well thought out but at the end of the day, my son enjoyed it which is what matters (because it is a kids movie).

    Ok so at target tonight I had 3 avengers hydra showdown 76030 sets in my hands.
    Went to checkout and a huge red X comes up on the register that says no sales until March 1. I said they were on the shelf. They pretty much accused me of going into the back room and taking them, and they are wrong. So the manager comes over and says I can't have them and I can come back after March 1 to look for them, I'm calling BS. So did they get In trouble with lego or what? Hers a pic of the sets on the customer service counter and me getting denied image

    They have been seen at other stores, including Toys R Us and Meijer, so I don't know if they're in trouble or if they actually are trying to adhere to the release date. I don't really understand the need for release dates, but whatever.

    Ya I can wait another 9 days or whatever but it was bullshit that we had them in the cart and got denied at checkout.

    I understand, I was trying to buy a stupid poly from TRU, which was all over the shelf and properly marked, but the checkout wouldn't let me buy until a certain day. Why this ever happens I don't know...if it's on the shelf, it's for sale with few exceptions in my book.

    @Kralaskan This is the 'LEGO DC Comics, Super Heroes' discussion not Marvel!

    I guess I'm not that into it to know the difference. It's all super hero to me. My fail but point is I found some early sets and target woukd not let me have it

    That's terrible customer service really. The problem is the workers didn't pay attention to the big orange stickers that say do not put out until after March 1st and did it anyways. Most do, some don't. I would have told the manager that they just lost a solid customer/sale and that you will buy the products elsewhere. The thing is, you could go to another Target, find the sets, buy them with no problems, and move on. It really depends I guess...

    The screen turned all red on the check out computor and had a big Black X on it. Said no sales until March 1. I'm with you, they were on the shelf, I had them fair and square, they should of sold them to me. Crap they are all over ebay so what's the big deal

    If the checkout system won't let them process the transaction then not much you can do about it.

    I wonder if this may be fallout from Targets selling the Frozen palace before Christmas last year and now LEGO has kindly reminded them of release dates for the world's #1 toy company.

    I got ready to build my Green Lantern set today, and I was so disappointed by the wings for the Space Batman. I know my kids wouldn't keep up with them, and the plastic feels so cheap. Anyone else disappointed by that little reveal?

    ^I'm also disappointed but with all those new moulds they might have run out of their budget so that was the only option they had. Moulds do cost up to a quarter of a million!

    I'm not a fan of the torso print for Supergirl. They have printed the cape round her neck on the front of the torso. Yet when she wears a cape, it goes round the front of her neck where there is print to suggest she is wearing a cape. It's a shame as the torso looks a bit odd if you remove the cape. Another case of too much detail where it really isn't needed.

    If you did not get to hawkman yet, be ready to be disappointed some more as his wings are made the same way.

    I seriously doubt moulds still cost them $250,000 a pop anymore.

    With the drop in brick quality, I'm sure they are cheaping out on the moulds too.
