Traveller’s Tales and Warner Bros. Games have announced the long-awaited video game sequel, LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2. Pre-orders are already offered both by Best Buy and Amazon, with the video game set for release on November 14 of this year. If you think placing your order six months ahead is quite far off, then knowing that LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2 comes with an exclusive promo might interest you.
The Brick Fan has just shared some information that the highly anticipated game may come bundled with an exclusive LEGO Marvel Superheroes minifigure polybag. The catch? It isn’t any one of the Marvel characters that we’ve seen gracing the cover of the game’s box art, and it is, as far as we know, the very first LEGO minifig of his kind. The said polybag exclusive is rumored to be none other than the upgraded version of Hank Pym’s Giant-Man. For those of you who are familiar with the Marvel comics storyline, Goliath is the iteration of Pym’s Giant-Man- one among many identities that Pym held as a member of the Avengers. It may come as a rather odd choice for LEGO to choose a relatively random Marvel superhero to use as promotional leverage for such a huge and highly popular game, but the air of exclusivity that comes with the Goliath minifig somehow makes up for it.
In case you’re wondering how it looks like, several online sources have already leaked the Goliath minifig’s image, and we are not at liberty to share it with you here. However, to give you an idea on how it may look like, here are some old school, Marvel comic book pages that show how Goliath looks. This comes closest to the minifig version that we have seen so far. Interestingly, Brickset has already added a Giant Man Hank Pym (30610) polybag that hints on the said minifigure exclusive.
LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2 retails at $59.99 and will be available across all major consoles including the Xbox One, Playstation 4, PC (via Steam) and Nintendo Switch. Watch out for the game’s full trailer reveal on May 23.
Players will go head-to-head with the time-traveling Kang the Conqueror in an epic battle across Chronopolis, from Ancient Egypt and The Old West to Sakaar and New York City in 2099. Along the way, gamers will be able to take control of a host of iconic characters, from Cowboy Captain America from the past to Spider-Man 2099 from the future along with Thor, Hulk, the Guardians of the Galaxy, Black Panther, Captain Marvel, Doctor Strange, Green Goblin, and dozens of other Marvel Super Heroes and Super Villains.
Packed with entertaining LEGO humor for fans of all ages, LEGO® Marvel Super Heroes 2 features a four player multiplayer mode, allowing friends and family to play competitively or cooperatively as a team.
