Just a short while ago, LEGO officially revealed the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2017 Mighty Micros sets. Like with the DC wave, there will be three sets for Marvel as well and will be displayed at San Diego Comic Con 2016 next month. As seen above, we have Wolverine vs. Magneto. Next up we also have Iron Man vs. Thanos. This is the first time we have Thanos in a traditional minifigure form and he comes with an Infinity Gauntlet Mighty Micro. Finally we have Spider-Man vs. Scorpion.

Today I have a short review of the exclusive LEGO Toys R Us Geoffrey & Friends (40228) set. This set was gifted to me by my store manager at Babies R Us who went to a meeting at the flagship TRU in New York. The set contains 133 pieces and retails for $9.99. It is currently unavailable here in the US for purchase at this time but is available at Toys R Us Germany. The contents of the box include two un-numbered bags, the instruction booklet, and a sticker sheet.
LEGO has announced that they will be continuing the LEGO Super Heroes Mighty Micros line in 2017 and today they have shown off a sneak peek at some of the sets that will be coming next year.
The first set, shown above, is Superman vs. Bizarro. This is the first time that the Bizarro minifigure has been in a widely available set and not the San Diego Comic Con exclusive.
Next is Wonder Woman vs. Doomsday in which Wonder Woman gets an Invisible Plane Mighty Micro made up of lots of clear pieces. Also Doomsday now becomes an official minifigure although he is the chibi version.
Last up is Batman vs. Killer Moth. This version of Batman is the chibi version of the Adam West classic Batman which includes the retro Batcopter.
LEGO has hashtagged their post with #SDCC so we can probably expect to see these in person at San Diego Comic Con next month.
There are some new details regarding what we can expect to see from The LEGO Batman Movie. Producers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller in a recent interview with Collider has given some little tidbids about the movie.
First, there are no limits to what eras of Batman will be covered. They also stated that the movie is pretty much a 90-minute Easter egg and it covers anything up to Batman v Superman as well as the future of Batman, whatever that means.
The LEGO Batman Movie won’t be out for quite a while so we can expect many more little teasers and tidbids of it until then. Hopefully, we’ll get to see something for it from San Diego Comic Con next month.
San Diego Comic Con 2016 is only a short few weeks away and everyone’s been patiently waiting for LEGO do some reveals of their own. Earlier today, LEGO revealed one of the many brick-built statues that will be displayed at the convention which is LEGO Ninjago’s Jay in his new outfit from the current wave of LEGO Ninjago sets. It was stated that it took builders 345 hours to create the 64,148 piece statue.
I will be at SDCC 2016 all five days to report on anything LEGO related. There’s nothing available yet on the program schedule as it is still a little too early but stay tuned.
