A ton of Lego news has been leaked in dribs and drabs this week, including confirmation of the ‘Jurassic World’ theme that will tie into the upcoming movie (meaning another Chris Pratt minifig!), but where our interests really lie is in the Star Wars and Super Heroes themes.
Although there have been no official announcements on Lego’s Avengers: Age of Ultron sets, there is rumour of 5 sets coming out to tie in with the movie release in May 2015.
We do, however have some details on the DC Super Heroes line for 2015. The set numbers and names due for release are as follows:
76025 – Green Lantern vs. Sinestro
76026 – Gorilla Grodd Goes Bananas
76027 – Black Manta Deep Sea Strike
76028 – Darkseid Invasion
76029 – Brainiac Attack
We already covered the Green Lantern set in a previous post, but that list suggests we’ll be getting some pretty cool villain minifigs, perhaps a Gorilla Grodd ‘Bigfig’, and if I were to hazard a guess, a Cyborg minifig too (possibly in the Darkseid set?). We’ll look forward to seeing some images when they finally get released, but if you’re a fan of Lego’s DC characters, 2015 could be a very good year.
As for the Star Wars line, Lego are continuing to release updated versions of older playsets, as well as sets based on the Rebels animated show:
75072 – ARC-170 Starfighter Microfighter
75073 – Vulture Droid Microfighter
75074 – Snowspeeder Microfighter
75075 – AT-AT Microfighter
75076 – Republic Gunship Microfighter
75077 – Homing Spider Droid Microfighter
75079 – Shadow Troopers
75080 – AAT
75081 – T-16 Skyhopper
75085 – Hailfire Droid
75087 – Anakin’s Custom Jedi Starfighter
75089 – Geonosis Troopers
75078 – Imperial Troop Transport (Rebels)
75082 – TIE Advanced Prototype (Rebels)
75083 – AT-DP (Rebels)
75084 – Wookie Gunship (Rebels)
