Observers might have noticed that while LEGO was great with MCU tie-in sets, they haven’t been as focused with Warner-DC. “Avengers: Endgame” had sets and so will “Spider-Man: Far from Home.” Still, what of “Shazam!” which premiered last month? Sure it had a DLC pack for “LEGO DC Super-Villains,” but where are its tie-in sets?
A new product listing by Bricklink reveals that there is one after all. It’s no boxed LEGO building set; instead it’s a minifigure polybag. Numbered 30623, the character inside is pretty much obvious. It’s Shazam himself, smarmy smile and all.
French LEGO news source Brick Heroes even noticed something about the minifigure design for LEGO Shazam! (30623). It’s a retool of the Shazam minifig in “Batwing and the Riddler Heist” (76120), from the “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.
There’s no word yet on the polybag’s availability, either for sale or as a gift-with-purchase thing. We can surmise however that the cape looks like other minifigure clothing accessories. That means they’re probably stored in a smaller bag within the main polybag. Once the LEGO Shazam! (30623) minifigure is gotten, the usual caution is expected when tearing the bag open.
