This past June we reported that Lego were one of the many companies announced to have merchandising rights for Batman v Superman at Licensing Expo 2015. It’s amazing to think that six months ago we were speculating over how many sets we’d get and that Building Lego Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Brick By Brick was more a dream than a reality. This month, Wall Street Journal were the first to exclusively reveal three Batman v Superman Lego sets that brick fans and DC fans will be sure to pick up.
Lego Super Heroes United: Sky-High Battle
The Sky-High Battle set contains 516 pieces, including the Batwing with an opening cockpit, fold-out wings and rapid shooter, and Lex Luthor’s LexCorp helicopter. The five minifigures included are Lois Lane, Lex Luthor, Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman.
- It will retail for $49.99 and go on sale Jan. 1.
LEGO Super Heroes Clash of the Heroes
The Clash of the Heroes set contains 90 pieces, including minifigures of Superman and Batman, a buildable Kryptonite bazooka with launch stick, and a rotating, exploding Bat-Signal.
- It will retail for $12.99 and go on sale Jan. 1.
Lego Super Heroes Kryptonite Interception
The Kryptonite Interception set contains 300 pieces, including minifigures of Batman and two LexCorp “henchmen,” a forklift for Kryptonite, and a Batmobile with two stud shooters and opening doors.
- It will retail for $29.99 and go on sale Jan. 1.
Fans should take note that the Wall Street Journal lists all three Batman v Superman Lego sets as going on sale January 1st. That date, which is next week, seems to be the date Warner Bros and DC Comics are planning on unveiling their Batman v Superman line of merchandise, toys, and collectibles. We’ve written about All The Batman v Superman Merchandise You Can Handle and that should give you an idea as to what could be expected from stores like Toys R’ Us, Target, Walmart, and wherever else quality toys are sold.
Will you be in toy stores next Friday looking for any of the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice toys? I’m calling it “World’s Finest Friday” and maybe I’ll see you at the stores. I’ll be the guy buying all of the Superman action figures and collectibles!
