Apologies for my rather long absence, but I now return with what is easily some of the biggest news this month ; we now have images of both Batman V Superman : Dawn Of Justice and Star Wars : The Force Awakens products!
The Dawn Of Justice Batmobile is the “official” news, which was announced earlier today. The announcement tells us that this set will be featured at SDCC (San Diego Comic Con), and that the vehicle is not a set on it’s own ; As well as the Batman figure and Batmobile, the set will also feature an additional vehicle and 3 other figures. It’ll be priced at $29.99 and have 306 pieces total. Sounds awesome!
The Star Wars news is, well, “less” official…
The news comes from David Hall, or Solid Brix Studios as most know him by. Earlier today he posted a video on his YouTube channel that featured 6 official, finalised Captain Phasma figures, otherwise known as the “Chrome Trooper” played by Gwendoline Christie, and seen in the second trailer for The Force Awakens. The figure doesn’t feature any accessories or even face printing, although this will likely be included with the actual figure released with sets. David took it upon himself to add a custom cape and blaster to one of the 6 figures to give an impression of what the final version will look like. The figures looks outstanding in my opinion, and I love the unique Pearl Grey colour scheme, as well as the new helmet mould. Here’s the video that David uploaded showing off the figures.
Again, these photos are a bit controversial, as addressed by David in the video. They were purchased from an eBay seller, who likely acquired them from a LEGO factory or factory worker, who in turn likely stole them…meaning that, technically, these figures aren’t legal. That being said, there’s no way to confirm that they were in fact stolen, and also this isn’t the first leaked Force Awakens merchandise, shown by the Kylo Ren Shuttle leak.
So, there we have it, an official look at the new Batmobile and a not-so official look at the first ever Force Awakens figure. Stay tuned for more LEGO news here on,
