71026 - DC Super Heroes Minifigures

Recommended Posts

The January 2020 line of minifigures will be DC Super Heroes.  Rumor is that it will be some more obscure characters.

So far, leaks have been Metamorpho, Green Lantern Simon Baz, Sinestro (Challenge of the Super Friends costume).  Star Girl is also rumored.

I'm skeptical. Too logical to be a real LEGO idea.

Seriously, though, they should have thought of this a long time ago.

For real, if this is true, expect Marvel to soon follow...Im actually surprised they weren't first to it.

I thought they couldn't sell minis just of the comics characters because that would be an infringement on the action figures that Hasbro and others have licensing for?

I assumed TLBM/2 sets were allowed since they technically were part of the movie and not just a DC Heroes line.

I know the DC action figure license is transferring from Mattel to McFarlane in 2020, though I think Mattel is still retaining the DC license for Fisher Price.  Perhaps something changed for LEGO to be able to do these now.

I think DC license transferring to McFarlane is almost cooler than the Lego fig news :D

Who is that guy with the bat on the front of his suit in the middle in black and grey?  I haven't seen him before in Lego. 🙄

 

He's got purple hands and really pointy ears, so probably the original comics debut of Batman from Detective Comics

And blue batarang.  Wasn't there a Batman series in 90s with him in really long ears? I never liked the art style

Oh  man, so many Batman in the day. Maybe you are thinking of Batman Beyond?  Still nothing stands up to the old Animated Series.

Sorry I meant comics series. Batman was drawn all skinny and screwy with long ears

Oh yeah, I remember those. Can't recall the artist  off the top of my head, but that was during the Knightfall and Batman being broken by Bane time period.

Kelley Jones was the penciler.

soo.. anybody dares to venture a guess which Fig collection is going to be better than the other? - Disney minifigs, Simpsons minfigs, DC minifigs, Marvel minifigs..  - and of course HP line of figs.

Some classic comic book character designs here. Now that's old school.

Holy shat, I have that exact issue for some random reason. I can't remember the crazed convict's name, just in this story he had a group of women hostage with the police force outside and every single mark you see on his body was self-inflicted as in with each kill he used his knife to "keep score". A sick f*** indeed.

On a side note I want to say around the back of this issue in the section where people could mail in questions and the staff would respond, someone had asked about the penciling & inking process. They showed an original rough sketched panel followed by the same scene done by three different inkers. Though the scene was essentially the same, each one's specialized style gave it such a unique appearance. The difference in the details between them always stuck with me.
