The newest LEGO catalog has hit online and with it is lots of brand new sets based on Marvel and DC characters as well as next year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Captain America: Civil War.
Those sets gives hints as to what we might see including an Ant-Man that turns in to Giant Man, and a showdown of Batman and Superman with Luthor. Sets don’t always indicate actual plots of films, as the Ant-Man set hinted Michael Douglas would suit up and team up with Paul Rudd. That didn’t happen. So, it might not mean anything other than fun you can have.
We’ll get some pretty awesome figures including new version of character we’ve already seen but new ones such as Captain Marvel, Hyperion, Black Panther, Lex Luthor and more!
Check out all of the images below.
2015 looks to be another amazing year for fans of Marvel and DC Comics LEGO sets. We’ve got the already released sets based on DC Comics that gave us Darkseid, Sinestro, Hawkman, and more, but there’s even more hitting shelves or will be hitting shelves.
A new polybag, set #30303 features the Joker Bumper Car. It should be found at Toys R Us and sells for $3.99.
Not to be outdone, the Winter Soldier will be getting a polybag as well. Details for the date of release aren’t out yet.
If you’re like me, and want to collect all the minifigs you can, you bought the Target exclusive box that contained Superboy among other figs. It looks like Garth Ranzz, aka Lightning Lad, will be getting the same treatment. It’s unknown when this will be hitting shelves or where.
News coming out of Toy Fair gives us some news as to new sets from this summer for both Marvel and DC:

So, out of all of the above, what are you most excited about?
From the German version of the Lego catalog we get a look at what we can expect for the Lego Marvel Avengers: Age of Ultron sets. There’ll be six sets that’ll hit shelves around April.

We’re getting a better idea as to what we can expect next year as far as new LEGO sets for their Marvel and DC brands. This is what we can expect in early 2015:
- 76025 DC Comics: Green Lantern vs. Sinestro
- 76026 DC Comics: Gorilla Grodd Goes Bananas

- 76038 Marvel: Avengers Age of Ultron
- 76040 DC Comics: Brainiac Attack
- 76041 Marvel Ant-Man / Spider-Man
There’s absolutely going to be new sets based on next year’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, but rumor is we’ll see another Marvel based set either for the Ant-Man film or Ultimate Spider-Man.
This online store gives us more details though as far as figures that’ll be included:
|76025 Green Lantern vs. Sinestro

And here’s some early images of the sets, though changes have happened in the past from early photos to released product. Check those out below the jump.
LEGO has said they’ll be giving away a minifigure at San Diego Comic-Con based on a DC Comic character in a raffle, much like they’ve done the last few years. Check out this year’s figure, Zur-En-Arrh.
On the Marvel end, there’ll be a figure of The Collector which you can get an idea of what it looks like below.
There’ll be a lot of new Marvel Lego sets in 2014, especially with various movies out based on Marvel movies. We’re getting the first pictures of sets hitting the web.
76014 Spider-Trike vs Electro – A simple set that gives us Electro, one of the villains from The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
76015 Dock Ock Truck Heist – This looks like a fun set with Doc Ock as the main villain.
76016 Spider-Helicopter Rescue – The helicopter is a bit odd, but Luke Cage, Mary Jane and an Ultimate version of the Green Goblin make up for it.
76017 Captain America vs. HYDRA – It’s Captain America versus HYDRA and the Red Skull!
76018 Hulk Smash Lab – This might be my favorite new set because you not only get the Hulk, Falcon and Thor, but also Taskmaster and MODOK!
