It’s hard to miss the fact that LEGO is heavily invested on other forms of media and communication well outside its core offering of toys and educational children’s products. Films and TV shows? They’re covered. How about videogames? LEGO has them too, from console titles to some fun mobile apps. And it’s incredible how many LEGO mobile apps they’re developing concurrently. Aside from baseline LEGO builds rendered in AR, and the app controls for the new LEGO Batmobile (76112), there’s a new app launched that’s based on the popular BrickHeadz line of cute brick-built figures. It’s called (simply) BrickHeadz Builder.
The cool thing about LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 from WB Interactive and Traveller’s Tales is that they’re part of the greater Marvel brand synergy, meaning it updates and modifies its setting to coincide with the next big film release in the chart-topping and box office-busting Marvel Cinematic Universe franchise. Ever since LMSH2 was released in November 2017, we saw this update synergy happen when Thor: Ragnarok premiered, then with Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War this year. This July another MCU movie is coming out, and with it, WB Interactive’s launch of the new Ant-Man and the Wasp DLC.
WB Games and LEGO has already launched its next anticipated video game the LEGO DC Super Villains and it’s no secret, like other LEGO video game titles before it, that this latest video game offering will also come with a free minifigure collectible. The exclusive LEGO DC Super Heroes Lex Luthor (30614) minifigure polybag features an alternate version of Lex Luthor based on DC Comics’ Rebirth where he is seen wearing a Superman-styled armor. Poland-based Ebay seller klocego1 has listed the said exclusive minifigure, and we now have our first look at its respective polybag. This minifig rendition of Lex Luthor is a promotional LEGO polybag that will go together with the game’s Deluxe Version slated to be released on October 16.
The LEGO Incredibles video game is already out, and to celebrate its release in the US (with a UK and Europe release date of July 13), WB Games has uploaded a new, live-action launch trailer that shows video game fun is best experienced together with the rest of the family. Watch this.
