There are now official box art images for the LEGO Super Heroes Mighty Micro sets that have been uploaded to LEGO’s servers. These sets were revealed at the lead-up to San Diego Comic Con. Again for next year, there will be three sets for the DC Comics Super Heroes and three for Marvel.

Some of The LEGO Batman Movie sets are now available and we’ve already seen a lot of the sets from the initial wave. One set that we just seen images of is The Penguin Arctic Roller (70911). The set has 305 pieces but the price point remains a mystery at this time. The contents of the box include two numbered bags, two instructions, and a small sticker sheet.
CM4Sci has sent over an image of the packaging for The LEGO Batman Movie Collectible Minifigures (71017). If you haven’t seen the lineup for the minifigures yet, they were revealed last week with 20 in total to collect. There’s no word on pricing on the minifigures but hopefully they’ll stay at the current price point.

It has been confirmed today by The LEGO Batman Movie director Chris McKay that Billy Dee Williams will be voicing Two-Face in the movie. You may remember that Williams portrayed Harvey Dent in the 1989 Batman movie and now he will be reprising the voice role. You’ll notice in the Arkham Asylum (70912) that the Two-Face minifigure does resemble Williams.
Billy Dee Williams joins an already all-star cast in The LEGO Batman Movie with Will Arnett reprising his Batman role. Ralph Fiennes will be voicing Alfred Pennyworth, Michael Cera as Dick Grayson, Zach Galifianakis as the Joker, Jenny Slate as Harley Quinn, and Rosario Dawson as Catwoman.

LEGO has released more official images of various themes and the more notable ones are for The LEGO Batman Movie. The two sets that have been revealed are Scarecrow Special Delivery (70910) and The Penguin Arctic Roller (70911) which I believe are retail exclusive sets.
The Scarecrow Special Delivery has 204 pieces and includes minifigures of Batman, Security Guard, and Scarecrow. The Penguin Arctic Roller set has 305 pieces and has minifigures of Batman and the Penguin.
I’ll have my review of the Arctic Roller later on tonight when the embargo lifts so stay tuned for that.
A few weeks ago, some official images of the winter 2017 LEGO Star Wars sets came out and one particular set was pretty intriguing. This set was The Phantom (75150) based on the Rebels series and one of the minifigures featured was Grand Admiral Thrawn. The image was pretty hard to see if he had the correct red eyes for him. Now more images have come out and we can now confirm that he does indeed have his red eyes which is a relief for many fans of the character. The one thing that isn’t correct is his insignia of Grand Admiral. The ranking on the minifigure only shows him as Admiral.
