Day 3 of the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles finally revealed the mystery prize of the LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2 sweepstakes, which we reported a few days ago. The mystery prize is an 18-inch LEGO Marvel brick-built statue which was hinted to be that of a ‘formerly frightful’ Marvel character. Today, Arthur Parsons (TT Games’ Head of Design) and Ryan Penagos (VP and Executive Editor of Marvel Digital) were so excited to reveal not just the winner of the sweepstakes, but also the who was this LEGO Marvel mystery figure. Valued at $2,875, the prize was none other than the brick-built figure of Medusa, straight from Marvel comics.

As one of the members of the villainous Frightful Four in the Marvel comic books, Medusa now comes in her digital minifigure form in LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2. During the demo gameplay, Parsons highlighted some of the cool things about Medusa’s abilities and the length that the game animators went through to give life to her iconic character. Her signature, giant hair and sleek moves were all brought to life in LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2, and the level of animation involved is fantastic. Check out this gameplay video below.
LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2 is now available for pre-order and slated for release on November 14, 2017. It also comes with a Deluxe Edition that includes the Classic Guardians of the Galaxy Character Pack which features playable classic GOTG characters including Charlie-27, Yondu, Major Vance, and Starhawk among others.
