Observers might have noticed that while LEGO was great with MCU tie-in sets, they haven’t been as focused with Warner’s DCEU. Avengers: Endgame have sets so is Spider-Man: Far from Home. However, what about Shazam! which premiered last month? Sure it had a DLC pack for the LEGO DC Super-Villains video game, but where are its tie-in sets? A new product listing by Bricklink reveals that there is one after all. It’s not the usual boxed LEGO building set, but a minifigure polybag instead. The LEGO DC Comics Shazam! (30623) minifigure polybag is pretty much obvious. It’s Shazam himself, with a mischievous smile and all.
French LEGO news source Brick Heroes even noticed something about the minifigure design for LEGO DC Comics Shazam! (30623). It’s actually a re-release of the Shazam minifig included in the LEGO DC Comics Batwing and the Riddler Heist (76120), from the LEGO Batman 80th Anniversary sets. The body’s the same, but the hooded cape accessory and head (evoking current comic-book design) have been replaced. Now the 30623 minifigure version has a high-collar cape (like the movie) and a LEGO-rendition of Zachary Levi’s face. All told, the film Shazam does look better and more heroic. Here’s a closer look at this minifig from a recent eBay listing.
There’s no word yet on the polybag’s availability, either for sale or as a gift-with-purchase promo. We can surmise however that the cape looks like other minifigure clothing accessories. We’ll keep on the lookout once more news comes in about the LEGO DC Comics Shazam! (30623) minifigure polybag, but for the time being, be sure to keep tabs with us here at The Brick Show.
