Exclusive Lex Luthor Minifigure


It looks like there may be hope for those that found the Lex Luthor figure included in 6862 Superman vs. Power Armor Lex a little bland. I mean, who shows up to battle Superman in a three piece suit? Ok, so they did scrap on occasion in more formal attire and sometimes even in ridiculous shirtless bare-knuckle boxing matches. However, don't get too excited just yet (I mean about the figure, not the shirtless boxing) because this deal has only popped up on the Australian EB Games site so far and even if the same deal gets offered in other countries it still means pre-ordering the LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes game at full price. I love the LEGO games and if this offer hits Canada it will be the first time I buy one without waiting for the usual price drop, but I just wouldn't want to risk missing out on this classic look. Fingers crossed!

AWESOOOME!!!! I would be shocked if this wasn't offered in the US, so I'll be waiting for the announcement here.

Is that armor part a new piece? If so, I can't imagine they'd make a whole new mold for a giveaway... I think we'll likely see a similar fig (different print perhaps?) in one of next years sets...

It looks like the armor is the same mold as the blue space marine in the forthcoming series 7 minifigs:

Ok, this does look prettyyy darn cool, but I really can't preorder this game.

Lego games were always fun because of their cute make-fun-of-serious-things attitude. I would rent this, or maybe buy years down the road in the discount bin (which I did with all the other lego games teehee), but not pre-order.

Still... tempting...

The Lex figure is up as a bonus to the preorder in Canada! I just put my preorder in despite also hating to pay full price. What I do for Lego...

I went ahead and made the leap. I could use some light-hearted gaming this summer.

The offer is also on the Gamestop/EB Games US website.

It's been so long since I pre-ordered a game. Is it a pre-order with a down payment or pay full price ahead of time? And when do you get the bonus? With the game or when you pre-order?

I'm glad the physical freebie still exists. I'm so sick of "exclusive in-game character skin!" with pre-order. I miss the old days of a t-shirt or poster.

Get off my lawn.

I think they require a minimum of $5, but you can pay it in full, your choice. You'll get the bonus when you pick up the game and I'd recommend to those who do pre-order in-store to pick their game up ASAP, since in my experience, GS stores are wildly inconsistent in how many pre-order bonuses they get (and who they dole out to). Any delay may mean no bonus.

Preorder a copy and then sell the game new. It will definitely be cheaper than trying to buy the minifigure after the fact on eBay, Amazon, etc.

Not too excited for the game. My girlfriend and I played through the first one together and had a decent enough time with it. Probably will pre-order this just to get the minifig though. Worried my Gamestop won't have enough pre-order bonuses, but I guess I'll see. Then I'll decide whether to keep the game or sell it.

EB Games Offers LEGO Batman 2 'Exclusive 5 Villains Character Pack' by fbtb, on Flickr

The Australian EB Games site is blazing the trail again being the first to offer another bonus with the pre-order of LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes. In addition to the sweet power armour Lex Luthor figure you can also get a '5 Villain Pack' that includes Captain Cold, Gorilla Grodd, Black Adam, Black Manta and the fan favourite Bizzaro. Unfortunately, but not surprisingly, this offer only applies to PS3 and Xbox users which is disappointing for the rest of us who may never get to play as some of these iconic villains. I have little doubt this will pop up for the the rest of us soon so keep your eyes out if you haven't pre-order this already.

It's probably a good idea to stress that this "5-pack" is represented in-game and not actual minifigures.

No kidding!!! I was on the verge of nerdgasm myself when I read this. The story doesn't give any indication that they're not actual minifigures; it needs to be made specific.

It would be awesome if they made the 5 villains actual minifigures in actual sets :D

Wouldn't really make any sense to limit actual toys to a specific system. If you took my statement about "playing" as a favourite character as playing with LEGO instead of the video game then I suppose EB doesn't say anywhere that they aren't toys either. MAYBE THEY ARE!!!!!!!!!!1!! :facepalm:
