Lots of good stuff today and they all have the word LEGO in the title, so you KNOW it’s all official like! If you’re not stuck in that line for Unikitty, here’s some other things you’ll want to be present for:
This might be a waste of bandwidth posting these images. After all, 76025 Green Lantern vs. Sinestro is a small $19.99 set consisting of three minifigs, a small ship, and some kind of chamber looking thing. It’s not very complicated and the pictures we’ve seen so far in the announcement post are pretty much all you’d need to see. Still, if you want to see them, you know what to do.
When USAToday revealed the latest D2C exclusive set, 76023 The Tumbler, to be honest I was more impressed by the minifigs than the actual vehicle. Something just looked off about it, I don’t know… maybe too many studs… but after seeing the model in person today at the San Diego Comic Con, I have to say it is REALLY impressive. It manages to capture all of the nooks and crannies, angles, all kinds of fine details you probably never knew it had. I can’t wait to get my hands on it. I snapped off a few pics, but it was quite difficult to get some good shots with it being in a glass case and all. In any case, they are available after the jump.
It’s now past midnight and the opening sign up round for MOC Madness 2014 has ended. We had a huge rush of final day entries like I expected, giving us a total of 57 steampunk starfighters that forum members now have a week to narrow down to 16 for the brackets ahead. So, when you get a chance, sign in and stop by this thread to cast your votes! Be sure to choose your top ten and not just one, wouldn’t want to waste those extra chances. Here’s the complete entry field:
All kinds of clever designs in there. Quite a bit of brown too. It’s going to be hard to narrow them down but best of luck to everyone, and thanks for participating!
DC’s panel in Hall H today revealed the first image of Gal Gadot in her Wonder Woman costume. This version is more Amazonian battle armour and less stars and stripes, but that fits with where they seem to be going. They also showed the first teaser of from the film featuring Superman facing down Ben Affleck’s caped crusader in an armoured suit much like the one from The Dark Knight Returns. I’m not going to post the leaked cell phone pictures here, but they are out there if you look hard enough.

Someone managed to get their hands on a copy of tomorrows Uni-Kitty exclusive giveaway early and chat troll murphquake spread ijustine’s joy on his tumblr. It appears that she actually has two printed faces instead of a double sided one, but we’ll be certain when we see packaging. This is the figure that tops my exclusive envy for this year, with todays Tacky Batman being second. Good luck to those in the draw.
The other day brought news of Lucy Lawless joining the cast in an unknown role which has now been confirmed to be agent Isabelle Hardley. It isn’t known if this will just be a guest shot or a recurring character, but time will tell. Then the panel yesterday in Ballroom 20 at SDCC dropped even more teasers about the upcoming season. I’ll let Agent Billy tell you who is going to be dropping in…
In anticipation of Marvel’s big Hall H presentation at SDCC today, they’ve been trickling out teaser art for the upcoming Avengers sequel, Age of Ultron. Last week came the first image of the films namesake villain, Ultron and the last couple days have seen these eight teaser posters pop, two at a time to create one massive scene of the movies heroes being completely over run by Ultron drones.
We just need Thor and the Hulk to complete this image, but the real stand out part is the inclusion of the floating caped Vision on Quicksilver’s panel. Man, am I glad he’s got the cape.
Meanwhile the Ant Man film that I now believe to be cursed released this concept art poster that shows Michael Douglas and Paul Rudd, looking suspiciously like Kurt Russell. The film just lost the three recently added villains, Patrick (Nite Owl) Wilson left due to scheduling and Matt Gerald and Kevin Weisman have also dropped out. Rumour is that they left due to the same creative differences that drove off the films original director, Edgar Wright.
You can expect more news as it breaks and as I get the time to post it in the next couple of days.
