  • Jason Bachelor

    They look like relatively inexpensive sets and an easy way to get some new minifigs. I like that Krypto is different from the one in the recent polybag.

    • TheGlynreaper

      it will likely only cost 70-80 for all 3 which is amazing considering there are 6 new minifigures

      • CadeSky

        Yeah, that kind of just dawned on me too. These are very reasonably priced!

        • NRD1138

          A bit surprised, until you remember that Batman (and his rogue’s gallery) is what sells and the rest, well they do ‘OK’. Great prices though for those looking to grow their character collections!

  • David4

    I must say they actually look pretty nice for a change.

    I hope we get a Supergirl set as I completely forgot to buy the last one.

    My guesses for prices would be $20, $50 (maybe $40) and $30.

    • Purple Dave

      Lobo and Luther are pretty much the only two characters who would regularly use hand-held firearms, and they both get to pilot the largest models in their respective sets. I’m kinda surprised they didn’t give Cyborg the new stud-firing arm that he’s supposed to get in his Justice League appearance, though. And there are stud-shooters built into most of the models, even if they don’t include any of the hand-held style.

  • Eric

    Love the Minifig selection! You can mark me down for all these sets. With that said, I kinda wish the Killer Frost Minifig looked more like the version of her in the Assault on Arkham animated feature. I liked that look for her!

  • CadeSky

    I really like these “energy effect” pieces. Are these borrowed from Ninjago or some other theme?

    • Victor Renoux

      Yeah, they are very cool. Actually, they were first introduced in the superheros lines. The ones shown here are a new mold based off the same concept, though.

    • Purple Dave

      The power blast that the Flash is holding is already out in some of the non-MCU Avengers sets (Detroit Steel and Ms. Marvel sets, specifically). Besides that, I see the following new pieces:

      1. long bar with a spiral energy effect
      2. large jet plume
      3. small jet plume
      4. large starburst
      5. small starburst
      6. large power blast

      The last one is easy to confuse with the existing new power blast that basically just wraps over the side of the hand, but the blast seen in the Superman accessories, as well as being held by Firestorm and Killer Frost seems to envelop the whole hand and is probably not designed to be fired from the minifig’s grip the way the smaller power blast is.

      Right now it’s hard to tell if the new stuff is an all-in-one accessory packet like the gear pack from the Batman theme, or the Clone Troopers gear from SW. All of the trans-bright green effects from the Superman set exactly match the trans-orange ones from the Luthor set, except I can’t see any TBG large starburst (unless it’s hiding between the trapezoidal flags on that little console). Likewise, the Cyborg set only shows a handful of the same mix, but Killer Frost has a large starburst in her solo image that’s not visible in the full set image, so it’s possible the rest got left out as well.

      • Purple Dave

        Just noticed that all three descriptions include mention of “10 assorted…Power Burst elements”, so it’s looking very much like they will be a fixed array of elements that’s pre-packed in a single color.

      • CadeSky

        Thanks for all of the info here! These sets really do look great.

  • TheGlynreaper

    okay ill be getting all 3 for sure but is it me or is the batman fig looking a bit different I can clearly see he has no cape but his batsuit looks more lighter grey than usual

    • Scott

      I tried to look close and I think it’s his newest costume from the comics. The symbol is outlined with yellow and the cape (in the books) is black on the outside and purple on the inside. Maybe the dual color is why he doesn’t have one. WW looks like the relatively new comic version with the skirt but Superman has the red undies so he’s not updated.

      • Purple Dave

        People on Brickset are theorizing that they’re based on Justice League Action, but that didn’t seem right to me. I looked up Wonder Woman, and her Action costume has a W-shaped belt that this minifig clearly does not match. The skirt also looks closer to Gal Gadot’s (kinda Roman Legion vibe, hanging lowest right in the middle), where this has an off-center split. Beyond that, I have no idea, but if it is Rebirth that makes it easier to slot into my Bat-family lineup. I have enough minifigs that I’ve just not been able to match up (most of the Penguin and Riddler minifigs, plus the second Bane minifig that exactly matches the artwork on his Wikipedia page…except I have no idea when he switched to that costume).

        • Scott

          The descriptions (which I don’t remember from my first post) say Rebirth specifically for Batman but not anyone else. I hope it has some kind of cape but it doesn’t look like it.

    • Purple Dave

      The reason he doesn’t have a cape is that he has one of the trans-clear dual-neck studs like Hawkman and Space Batman. Probably that black wing thingy is a jetpack that snaps onto his back. He looks “more lighter grey than usual” because they’ve usually gone with “black or very, very dark grey” costumes. As far as I know, the only normal light-bley costumes they’ve done were in 2006 (Hush logo), 2007 (pouch utility belt), and 2012 (oval shield logo, with both blue and dark-blue accents). Aside from those, there’s the Arctic Batman, TLBM Raging Batsuit, and the second Mighty Micros Batman (vs. Killer Moth). That’s it. In contrast, just in terms of dark-bley costumes, we’re about to have our fourth movie costume (2x Dark Knight trilogy, 2x DCEU), two TV shows (Beware the Batman & that dumpster fire series), the first Mighty Micros, Pirate, and a basic comic book version. For black, there’s the 2006 and 2012 costumes with shield logos, SDCC, UCS Tumbler (Batman Begins), Electro Suit, Gas Mask, TLBM, TLBM Glam Metal, and TLBM Vacation. So, six light-bley, vs 9 dark-bley and 9 black, plus the pearl dark-grey BvS Armored Batman that’s very close to dark-bley.

      • The Anonymous Hutt

        You have all sorts of knowledge inside your head don’t you? xD

      • NRD1138

        Yeah, given the dearth of Batman suits, nothing surprises me anymore with ‘Batmans’ in sets.

  • Doug

    The high minifig count is great.

    I’m a sucker for the stupid “connect this thing to that thing!” I love that stuff.

    • NRD1138

      In speaking about the Lobo set only,I do not count Krypto as a minifigure.. probably shouldn’t even have wasted a slot for him. I mean really, they could not find some character more useful than Krypto into that set? I guess they figured if they HAD to put him somewhere it may as well be in a set with an insanely popular figure that likely will never be put into another set after this (ala Deadpool)

  • Norse Highlander

    You had me at Lobo…

  • Purple Dave

    One of the interesting things I’m seeing pop up elsewhere is that several people think Krypto is made using repurposed Scooby-Doo body parts, but it appears he’s made with three unique elements. Where the standing Scooby had one forepaw raised, it was the right one. Krypto has his left forepaw raised, _and_ what’s more interesting is it’s hooked to allow him to actually hold a bar element. Scooby’s raised paw is flat on the pad side. The head is a totally different shape, and has the “S” emblem molded onto the collar, which looks very different from the Scooby collar (which is also molded onto the body instead of the head). The cape is a proper cloth cape, but where we have seen a single-hole cape before (allowing it to lay flat against the back when a large hair or helmet is going to press it down anyways), this looks a lot shorter than previous ones.

    • The Anonymous Hutt

      I don’t know why anyone would think it was a repurposed Scooby-Doo mold.

  • Darrell

    Awesome. Will be getting all three for the minifigures.
