Newest Trailer of LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2 Features The Grand, Open World of Chronopolis and New, Playable Marvel Characters.

With almost a day before the official opening of Europe’s largest gaming event and trade fair for the digital entertainment industry at Gamescon 2017, WB Games UK has just released its latest trailer for the upcoming mega sequel LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2 video game that features the expansive open world of Chronopolis, and the various, immersive locations within its world hub. We saw several new Marvel characters that were included in this year’s most highly anticipated LEGO video game sequel as revealed in this year’s San Diego Comic Con, and this time, we get to see the finer details of Chronopolis as brought to life by the diabolical Kang the Conqueror. Needless to say, it is by far the largest open world game that WB and TT Games ever created. It features new and classic locations straight from the pages of Marvel comic books such as Noir New York, Wakanda, Old West, Asgard, Medieval England and Knowhere to name a few.


  





Also for the first time, we get to see the minifigure characters of Adam Warlock, Man-Thing, Heimdall, Nebula, Iron Fist, Black Bolt and many more. It is one truly grand, LEGO Marvel comic book mashup that you don’t want to miss. Here’s the latest official game play trailer.

Let’s go to Chronopolis! Travel through a myriad of iconic Marvel locations, all ripped from time and space to form one huge, incredible open world for players to roam and explore, from the mythical land of Asgard and deep space base of Knowhere, to the vibrant jungle of Wakanda and the pyramids of Ancient Egypt. Other Marvel settings revealed in the trailer include the Coliseum, Hala, Hydra Empire, K’un-lun, Lemuria, Manhattan, Medieval England, Noir New York, Nueva York, Old West and The Swamp, which will be joined by Attilan, Kang’s Citadel and Xandar to make up sprawling open world that is Chronopolis.

The LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2 video game is set for release in the US on November 14, 2017. It comes with a Deluxe Edition that grants you early access to the Classic GOTG Character Pack, Season Pass, and an exclusive Giant-Man minifigure.

These Might Be The Most Customized LEGO Minifigures Ever

The cool thing about LEGO minifigures is that you can interchange and swap them with other minifig components. Consisted of a head-piece, the head itself, upper torso, lower torso, and one accessory, LEGO wants to stay true in its purpose of sparking creativity and variety even with its smallest of playthings, while allowing more room for its fans to be creative. And what better way to express this creativity through these highly customized LEGO minifigures.

Chris Lightfoot of Lincoln, England decided to push the limits of LEGO minifig customization to a whole new level with his unique, customized LEGO minifigures . During the day, he is a 3D printing specialist who develops artificial bones for the medical industry and models for architectural firms. Being a LEGO fan himself, he founded his online hobby store Funky 3D Faces. Lightfoot comments, “Although we do enjoy making bones and buildings we wanted to use the technology we had to make something fun and affordable to the masses.” For just less than US$30, you can have a funky, customized look of ‘your little monster’ and turn him into a little hero. According to their website, you just need to send along two clear photographs, one of the side of your head and one taken face-on. Funky 3D Faces then converts those photos into an “eerily lifelike” 3D head, as described by CNET reporter Amanda Kooser.

The process behind the creation of these 3D printed, customized LEGO minifigures is equally impressive as the outcome itself. “We convert 2 photographs into 3D – then using sophisticated full-color 3D printers, we create eerily life-like 15mm high heads,” Chris explains. The head-making process even includes your choice in hair style and color. The heads are sized to be more or less 15 millimeters. It has a sandstone finish with a hole in the neck that perfectly fits on any Lego minifigure. “This means you can turn yourself into whatever Lego character you want, whether it’s a Stormtrooper or one of the Ghostbusters”, adds Kooser. Tiny as it seems, the production of this 3D figure is somehow lengthy and usually takes up to two weeks. So plan accordingly if you need it for a special occasion or as a gift.
