Marvel Teases List of LEGO-style Comic Book Cover Collectibles in LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2.

The worldwide release of LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 is almost upon us. It’s already known that the multi-platform title will have content that references the recently-released MCU film Thor: Ragnarok, and that its list of in-game achievement trophies (at least for the PS4 version) have been revealed.

LEGO videogames are popular for the sheer amount of stuff to collect as players explore the sprawling game world, and LEGO MSH2 is no exception to this. So, with the game so close to coming out, Marvel itself has revealed the collectible comic book covers to be found, all “LEGO-fied” for players.

The LEGO Marvel Comics covers are done by artist Dan Veesenmeyer, and cover periods of Marvel history from now to all the way back to their golden age. Some visuals are just the covers on their own while others are side-by-side comparisons of the LEGO versions with their original cover artwork.

Also expected, certain covers, despite being from retro Marvel periods, will depict the characters as they are popularly nowadays known like in the MCU films. That means instead of a Caucasian Agent Nick Fury of SHIELD, we get the Ultimate Marvel/MCU film version – who is portrayed by Samuel L. Jackson.

Check out the rest of Dan’s artwork below.

Gameplay Trophies for LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 on Sony PS4 Revealed.

There’s only a week left now before LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 from Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment and Traveller’s Tales makes its highly-anticipated grand entrance across the “Big Four” game consoles and platforms. Once again, there will be plenty of excitement and funny shenanigans as minifigure versions of the most popular heroes and villains of Marvel Comics embark on a brand-new action-adventure.

 

Now, owing to the format of past LEGO Marvel games, there are bound to be oodles of gameplay trophies to be earned in LMSH2 for online bragging rights and stuff. Thanks to some diligent work, achievements for the PS4 version of the game have been discovered and shared.

PSN Profiles has done marvelous work in tracking down ad documenting all trophies that can be earned in the Sony PlayStation 4 version of LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2. Thus far, the PS4 take has about 46 trophies in total, ranked in four classes from Bronze to Platinum.

Some trophies are rather quickly earned through normal gameplay while others might require some hunting and collecting. Compared to the first LMSH, the requirements don’t seem to be altogether intimidating, which is either a big bonus or a letdown, depending on player.

Here’s a quick rundown of the achievements: there are 37 Bronze trophies, 4 in silver, 4 gold ones, and one colored in platinum. If you haven’t guess, the platinum trophy is the “collect all the others” achievement, and PSN Profiles considers it “Ultra Rare.” Here’s some of the trophies to watch out for once you have your hands on the game. For the rest of the trophies, be sure to visit PSN Profiles’ web page. Be warned though – these trophies may pose a potential spoiler for the game so click with care.

As for the plot, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 takes place 4 years after its predecessor, and the heroes and villains of the LEGO Marvel Universe find themselves taking sides in the time-space-shattering plans of Kang the Conqueror. It also references the recently-premiered Thor: Ragnarok. The game comes out on November 14 for Windows PC, PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. Here again is the PS4 Trophy List, not listed here to avoid spoilers.

LEGO MOC Spotlight: World of Warcraft’s Theramore by Mark Erickson.

It’s sure to be awe-inspiring whenever a LEGO builder shows off his custom build of a structure that reaches monumental proportions. It could be that of a real historical edifice like the Duomo of Florence. Or it could be a scale version of something symbolic, like a wind turbine built by The LEGO Company itself to celebrate its renewable energy policy’s early completion.

Then there are those set builds that exist only in fiction, from licensed properties like the World of Warcraft MMORPG from Blizzard Entertainment. Builder Mark Erickson for instance, replicated a key location from the game, Theramore Castle.

Erickson, known as Mark of Falworth on Flickr, shared his brick-built replica of the island citadel of Theramore, home of a faction of Human Alliance refugees from Lordaeron.

As World of Warcraft lore tells it, Theramore was initially established as a sanctuary and trading port which eventually expanded into a military fortress – no thanks to the  war between the Alliance and the Orcish Horde Theramore would later be destroyed by the Blood Elves of the Horde.

Mark has a keen eye for detail, and has managed to capture each key building in Theramore with uncanny accuracy. He ended up using 55,000 LEGO bricks set upon a mat area measuring 80 x 80 inches. This places his Theramore model in between Giancinto Consiglio’s scale Duomo (20,000 bricks) and LEGO’s own wind turbine (146,000 bricks, a Guinness World Record too).

For the curious, the building-block franchise license for Blizzard’s World of Warcraft has been held by Mega Bloks, so a custom build is the best alternative with LEGO. Congratulations to Mark for this superb MOC.
