First Wonder Woman Movie Set Unveiled

I spotted this over the weekend but didn’t get a chance to post it, as I have had to pixelate part of the image. Why? Well because this set contains some information about the Wonder Woman film that hasn’t previously been shown at all.

Some people don’t care about that sort of thing but I don’t want to be the one to spoil the film for you.

Here is the censored picture of 76075 Wonder Woman Warrior Battle.

LEGOS DC Comics Super Heroes CR: LEGO/DC Comics

The set features a new version of Wonder Woman (with optional blue cloak), Steve Trevor (played by Chris Pine) and the films villain. Also included is a great World War I plane. LEGO are very much against military themes but I think they have created a great plane here.

Below you’ll find more pictures and the spoilery information.

Official Pictures of Brick Headz Sets

The Brick Headz concept was first unveilled at San Diego ComicCon with a series of exclusive sets. While the exclusivity of the sets annoyed many we were promised that a full release was coming in 2017. Well LEGO have just uploaded pictures of the final sets to their server. There are 8 sets that we know of so far, and there are a few differences to the SDCC sets.

While the Marvel sets are based on the Marvel Cinematic Universe versions of the characters, The DC side of things is going LEGO Batman Movie over more traditional representations.

Overall I like the concept. Some sets seem to work better than others but I hope this succeeds and we see more. No word on pricing at this stage. Click on the image for larger versions, and click READ MORE to see the full list of 8 (if you can’t already).

DC Super Hero Girls To Become New LEGO Range

It’s been a bit of a slow period for LEGO news, but we have come across this potentially interesting announcement from Warner Bros and DC Entertainment;

A New Super Hero Universe Designed Just For Girls

When they say universe, they really seem to mean it; this new concept will include “Digital Content, TV Specials, Made-For-Videos, Publishing, Toys, Apparel and Other Products.”

DC Super Hero Girls Artwork

Here is the initial description from the press release;

Beginning in Fall 2015, DC Entertainment, Warner Bros. Animation, Warner Bros. Consumer Products and Mattel join forces to launch DC Super Hero Girls, an exciting new universe of Super Heroic storytelling that helps build character and confidence, and empowers girls to discover their true potential.  Featuring DC Comics’ most powerful and diverse line-up of female characters as relatable teens, DC Super Hero Girls will play out across multiple entertainment content platforms and product categories to create an immersive world.

Developed for girls aged 6-12, DC Super Hero Girls centers on the female Super Heroes and Super-Villains of the DC Comics universe during their formative years—prior to discovering their full super power potential. Featuring a completely new artistic style and aesthetic, DC Comics’ icons such as Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Batgirl, Harley Quinn, Bumble Bee, Poison Ivy, Katana and many more make their unprecedented teenaged introduction. Each character has her own storyline that explores what teen life is like as a Super Hero, including discovering her unique abilities, nurturing her remarkable powers and mastering the fundamentals of being a hero.

So what does this have to do with LEGO? Well even though the press release mentions partnership with Mattel (who now own Mega Bloks) they have decided that The LEGO Group will be the Exclusive Construction Partner. This means that in early 2016 there will be a new line of female focused DC Super Hero Girls LEGO sets.

At this stage we don’t know anything about the range, but our guess is that these sets will feature minidolls rather than standard minifigures. This seems to be LEGO’s preferred option for female focused sets.

We can’t wait to see the products; the biggest complaint with the Friends line has always been the stereotypically feminine storylines and lack of action. A new female focused range with characters that kick butt can only be a good thing, right?

2015 Set Images Surface Online – Part 1: LEGO Movie, Bionicle, DC & Speed Champions

Every year in October, LEGO fans start to wonder what the following year will have in store. We have already seen leaks with set names, but now we have pictures to go with them. Over on YouTube a user by the name of Just2Good has uploaded several videos with what appear to be official images of various 2015 sets.

Here is what we have seen so far… (Click on any image to see a larger version).

The LEGO Movie

The film may have been a 2014 release, but the tie-in sets will continue in 2015. The Double Decker Couch seems to be the standout, with a great selection of characters in what should be an affordable set.
