British publishing house Dorling Kindersley (DK) has announced its latest LEGO themed book LEGO DC Comics Superheroes: The Awesome Guide. Similar to previous LEGO books from the widely circulated publisher, this edition will be offered together with an exclusive minifigure that you can’t find anywhere else. According to a post shared by one of the followers of The Brick Fan, the book will include a version of Wonder Woman as she is expected to be seen, or how she will look like in DC Universe’s post-Convergence of New 52. Though the promotional ad below mentions succinctly that the exclusive minifig bundled with the book is that of the Amazon princess, we need to squint our eyes a little bit to see the actual minifig embedded on the cover of the book.
As mentioned, the minifigure dons the look of the newest version of Wonder Woman as she will be revealed in DC comics this June. The new Wonder Woman minifigure has red tops and boots, with blue sleeves and pants as she is rendered in the comics below.
This is a breath of fresh air so to speak, from the various Batman minifigs bundled with previous LEGO themed books (take Tartan Batman and Buccaneer Batman for example). I personally like this minifigure version of Wonder Woman because of how DC rebooted her character and looks. I guess it is a more fitting iteration of Diana to keep up with the times. The LEGO DC Comics Superheroes: The Awesome Guide will retail at $12.74 and is scheduled for release on May 2, and you may pre-order a copy via Amazon. So what do you think brick fans? Will you pick-up a copy of this newest DK book and have the new Wonder Woman minifig added to your collection?
