Marvel’s LEGO Variant Covers For October 2nd, 2013

All New X-Men #17

This Wednesday’s new comic book day only gives us two covers promoting the upcoming LEGO Marvel Super Heroes game, so it should be easier on some wallets. All New X-Men #17 with Leonel Castellani’s fantastic homage to Jim Lee’s cover of X-Men #1 from back in 1991 should be quite popular. Also, the cover for Marvel Universe: Avengers Assemble #1 includes Falcon, which is the only character to appear on one of these covers that hasn’t been produced as a minifig… yet. The book is also based on the new cartoon aimed at an all ages audience and those books are usually not ordered in great quantity, so expect it to be a tad more rare then some of the others.

Marvel LEGO Variant Covers Primer & Gallery

Superior Spider-Man #19 - LEGO Sketch Variant

With the first of the upcoming Marvel LEGO Variant Covers set to drop this week with X-men #5 and Mighty Avengers #1, we thought it might be a good idea to go over some of the details on how these variant covers work. I’m also putting all of the covers in this post as a sort of all in one gallery to keep track of the issues for those interested. There are five of the forty two missing at this point, but I will add them to this post when they pop up. If you collect comics you probably know all this already, anyone for whom comics is not their usual collectable may find this helpful. One thing is certain in both cases, it’s going to cost you.

Marvel LEGO Variant Cover Checklist Gets Sketchy

Superior Spider-Man #19 - LEGO Sketch Variant

As if it weren’t bad enough that Marvel will be releasing LEGO Variants of 21 titles starting in September, the news is out that there will also be sketch variants of these already limited quantity covers. The standard colour versions look to be in the 1 in 25 variant range and the sketches are sitting pretty at a wallet shattering 1 in 100. If you were planning on collecting all of these covers then it looks like you’ll be dropping some serious coin. I for one am glad I’ve only planned on grabbing a small handful of these and I won’t be holding my breath for any sketch covers on this one. I have no solid confirmation that all 21 books will also have sketches, but it’s looking good that these covers may just be a costly answer to life, the universe and everything.

At the very least, these sketches have revealed the last three variants that were previously unreleased. Iron Man #17, Captain America #12 and my personal favourite Superior Spider-Man #19. I’ll post when the final three colour covers are revealed and as soon as the remainder of the sketch covers show also. We plan on doing weekly posts once these covers are ready to hit shelves and remind folks what are being released, so good luck hunting Mighty Marvelites!

LEGO Magneto Cover Variant Revealed

legoMagneto

Forum member TooMuchDew did some sleuthing on his own and found the above variant cover for the upcoming All New X-men #17 by, who else, Leonel Castellani. This cover pays tribute to the Jim Lee gatefold cover of X-men Volume 2 published way back in 1991. It would have been awesome if Castellani did the other three sections of Lee’s famous cover.

Seen any covers we haven’t… covered… here yet? Drop us a line and let us know.

Indestructible Hulk #14 LEGO VariantX-Men #5 LEGO Variant

IGN & Comic Book Resources are reporting that Marvel will be releasing LEGO variant covers on more than twenty different titles to promote the upcoming LEGO Marvel Super Heroes game.

LEGO artists Leo Castellani, Christopher Jones and Adam DeKracker are providing a series of variant covers for some of Marvel’s September-releasing titles recreating some classic covers from the past in iconic LEGO minifigure form.

“Working with the folks at The LEGO Group to do these homage covers is an absolute blast!” said David Gabriel, SVP of Sales, Print & Digital. “As soon as we came up with the concept of doing the covers, I couldn’t wait to get an idea off the ground that really does justice to both the Marvel heroes and the LEGO brand.”

The titles have a little bit for everyone, or a lot to rundown for the OCD in the group:

All-New X-Men #17
Avengers #21
Avengers A.I. #4
Captain America #12
Daredevil #31
Fantastic Four #13
Guardians Of The Galaxy #7
Hawkeye #15
Indestructible Hulk #14
Infinity #3
Iron Man #17
Marvel Universe: Avengers Assemble #1
Mighty Avengers #1
New Avengers #11
Nova #8
Secret Avengers #10
Superior Spider-Man #19
Thor: God Of Thunder #14
Uncanny Avengers #12
Wolverine & The X-Men #36
X-Men #5

I’m down for one at least. For now…
