Would've been nice to see someone other than Robin, just because there are plenty already (with the League of Assassins theme, a Cassandra Cain Batgirl would have been very cool) but with Ra's and Talia, and Bats himself (I loves me some variant batsuits) the minifig selection is looking pretty swish so I'm not bothered.
Loving the Joker lowrider. Completely ridiculous. These were tweeted out by Lego from SDCC
also it has harley quinn's colors??
Plus those doll type faces are very intriguing.
I've read on EB that the new penguin mould has a stud on its back... I'm thinking it will be reused in the Batman movie with a missile launched like in Batman Returns. Which means I can update my Arctic World moc :-)
Even ignoring the toy sales motivation, a lot of artists and designers assigned to the Batman comics, cartoons, and movies just really enjoy creating their own spin on Batman's vehicles. And red and black versions of the Batmobile have been around for as long as there's been a Batmobile. This site makes for a good read if you ever find yourself with a lot of time to kill.
Anyway, I was not expecting to see the Kabuki twins from The Batman cartoon, since they haven't really been in anything else. I guess this proves that the interviews talking about the movie taking cues from all versions of Batman weren't just lip service!
The biggest disappointment for me in these two sets is Man-Bat, not because he's a bad design but rather because all the other characters we've seen in sets or stills feel like such fresh takes on the characters, and Man-Bat just looks like the previous Man-Bat figure.
I can't tell what the click hinges on the Batmobile's wheels are for. Parallel parking? Given the movie's sense of humor in the trailers that honestly wouldn't surprise me. :P
I think it's supposed to be something like this,
But it looks like more of a g-string than shorts without some leg printing.
Tomorrow is the last day to buy tickets for @Legoboy's raffle and have a chance to win one of the fantastic prizes offered by this community, including some DC and other Super Heroes sets!
I don't really want to see any of those post-apocalyptic scenes. Or re-live any of the pre-apocalyptic scenes.
(I would be remiss if I didn't mention the movie looks terrible. I wasn't a big fan of Thor, initially, but this version of that story worries me.)
i got the Green Lantern SDCC limited figure and was still excited for the other Green Lantern figures released.
(Admittedly, there are a few repetitive formulas for plots of these movies.)
On the other hand I have heard positive reactions for Aquaman, so hopefully it's good, I may see it if it ends up with good ratings but I don't trust DC enough to watch it otherwise. Far more excited for into the spiderverse
I also didn't like Suicide Squad very much. But Justice League was definitely a huge disappointment, it had so much potential.
Man of Steel and Wonder Woman are the best of the lot, but have mammoth flaws that undermine their very cores. (The heart of MoS is Clark maintaining his humility growing up, and WW is her conviction to maintain the greater good. MoS turned into a special effect mess, WW's best character was Steve Trevor.)
BvS is a mess and Superman actually died. Beyond ridiculous.
Anyway, I'm still perplexed as to why the Aquaman movie is being released AFTER JL. I'm not some sort of James Cameron film genius, but it don't take much smarts to introduce your super-team before doing the team-up movie?
It also bothers me that they show him in the throwback orange in the trailer. Why? Do they think Aquaman fans are going to skip the movie if he only appears as a tattooed sea-biker?
