Two exclusive minifigures have been showing up by the numbers over at eBay, quite earlier ahead of its expected official release dates.
If you recall, one of the limited-time offers featured in the LEGO Store Calendar for the month of May is the LEGO Marvel Superheroes Captain America’s Motorcycle (30447), considered to be the very first polybag version of the Super Soldier’s minifigure. We first featured 30447 when Stephen made the announcement, and as it was eventually listed over at Toy R Us earlier in March retailing at $3.99. As of this writing, TRU indicates that the LEGO Captain America’s Motorcycle is currently out of stock, with the option of being notified via email once it is available.
However, for those who can’t wait until the end of the month to get this first-time ever polybag of Cap, 30447 has been appearing by the numbers over at eBay, with an initial bid averaging from $9.99 to $12.99 for sealed, unopened polybags. Here are some images we pulled from the site.
The case might not be the same with the LEGO Superhero DC Comics Nightwing minifigure. This newest rendition of Nightwing first appeared during the latter part of March as a bundled promo for LEGO’s direct-to-DVD exclusive Gotham City Breakout scheduled to be released on June 21. Initially, there was no info yet whether or not this minifigure will come in a polybag or even if it will receive a set number. In retrospect, the first mention of 30606 as a LEGO DC Comics polybag first appeared in February, though it wasn’t clear then to whom it belongs.
Last Saturday, an image (leaked?) of the supposedly LEGO Nightwing exclusive began to make rounds over at LEGO forums, and this time set number 30606 is now confirmed to belong to this latest version of Nightwing. Given as it is, we are now quite sure that this polybag will be packed inside the box of Gotham City Break Out DVD. It seems that Dick Grayson will be coming back in a dark and stormy night.
What is probably more surprising is the fact that 30606 is now listed at eBay by a certain seller named minifigureland for an initial bid of $12.95. He claims to have seven more of these, with 87 sold already. He also lists the following product details. Photo credits go to minifigureland.

It’s interesting to note that based on this images, LEGO Nightwing 30606 comes with a double faced printing on its head piece, being a re-color of the Red Nightwing as seen in LEGO DC Comics Superheroes Batman: Man-Bat Attack (76011). We’re not quite sure yet how this latest Blue Nightwing (30606) fits in the overall scheme of LEGO sets given that it now has a set number and a polybag, unlike other limited-edition exclusive minifigs.
This might be a welcomed offer for minifig enthusiasts who just need to have this Blue Nightwing polybag without necessarily purchasing the movie itself. But those who can extend their patience a little, and wish to have a laugh or two with the wackiness of our DC Superheroes in their minifig forms, may opt to wait June 21 for the film’s official release.
UPDATE: Brick Toy News reports that LEGO Marvel Superheroes Captain America’s Motorcycle has been spotted over at local TRU stores, though there was no mention of any specific branch or location. Here’s a look at what they hauled from the store.
