Rocket Raccoon #1 LEGO Variant Out Today

Rocket_Raccoon_1_Lego_Variant

Today is the day to get your hands on issue 1 of the first ongoing Rocket Raccoon series and the Stan Lee LEGO variant that comes along with it. Canadian collectors, keep in mind that there may be a delay due to the holiday yesterday, but call your local shop and ask if they’ll be in and if they’re getting this magnificent cover. The Variant cover by Leonel Castellani, would make an excellent addition to any LEGO variant collection and I’ve no doubt the book will be a fun read with Scottie Young doubling up on art and writing duties inside.

I’ve updated the Cover Gallery accordingly and added more of the missing issues and release date for the super late Hawkeye #15 as well. Good luck hunting.

Marvel’s LEGO Variant Covers For October 23rd, 2013

Back to a reasonable three titles for this weeks Marvel LEGO Variant covers, so if you love Iron Man, the Hulk or that mischievous merc with a mouth Deadpool, you’ll want to get to your local shop quickly on Wednesday. Or hit up Midtown below. Hawkeye #13 has been pushed out again, so no word on a date for #15. We’ll keep you posted, but effectively this will be the last weekly cover update. I hope everyone enjoys playing the game, I’ll have to wait until my son gets his WiiU at years end because there’s no Wii version. At least I’ll have my covers to enjoy until then.

Marvel’s LEGO Variant Covers For October 16th, 2013

AVEN2012021_DC21AVEN2012021_DC31
Avengers #21

Huge week for Marvel’s LEGO Variant Covers this Wednesday with 5 titles equalling ten elusive variants. Superior Spider-Man #19 is not only the most iconic of the bunch, but the most sought after and expensive too. At 85 smackers, discounted from a whopping $100, it’s not cheap by any means. If yesterday was a holiday in your area your comic shop may be off a day on getting their new comics or maybe just getting them out later in the day, so heads up. I feel sorry for a lot of the variant collectors this week with some of these titles having many variants not even including the LEGO ones. Time to get on the horn to my shop, I’m all in at this point.

All. In.

Interestingly, Hawkeye #13 hits the stands tomorrow, so it could be a couple months until #15 hits shelves. Unless they try to speed up the release dates, which seems to be the case based on next weeks expected titles.

Comic shop. Hit it.

Marvel LEGO Variant Comic Covers Gallery Page Is Now Live

SUPSM2013019_DC31AVEN2012021_DC21

As promised a couple weeks ago, the page with all the available Marvel LEGO cover variants can now be found in the feature section here. In every possible case we’ve included the virgin art without titles and barcodes as well as final cover art. At the moment we are only really trying to nail down the majority of the Hawkeye art. Poor Clint, his book is critically acclaimed and more popular than any he’s had before and he’s still the last guy picked.

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Marvel for sending us the file images and Leonel Castellani for doing such a great job with all these covers. Hope everyone interested has found the ones they’re looking for!

Marvel’s LEGO Variant Covers For October 9th, 2013

Avengers A.I. #4

Wednesday’s new comic book day for this week has three new LEGO covers promoting the upcoming game. Fantastic Four #13 and Superior Spider-Man #19 have been pushed back into next weeks grouping, which should put it at six books. As it already looks like my local shop doesn’t stock enough of those titles to get these variants, I’m wary of such a large bunch all at once. So, I may have to make use of Midtown myself to get the Cap and Loki variants. I’ve really enjoyed seeing the sketch variants of these covers and seeing the changes made to the final images. Personally, I would have been even more excited had the final colour version been of the classic Captain America suit, but I’d be happy either way.

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

ANXMEN017ANXMEN017_sketch
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.

This Wednesday’s new comic book day will bring us three covers promoting the upcoming LEGO Marvel Super Heroes game. I had originally listed Hawkeye #15 and Guardians of the Galaxy #7 on for this date as well, but GotG #6 is actually the issue out this week and Hawkeye #14 isn’t even scheduled on Marvel.com until October so the timeframes are hitting some of the usual hiccups. You’ll still get Nova #8, Uncanny Avengers #12 and Wolverine & the X-men #36 which I’m actually just going back to read the full run of now. Also, the two covers due next week for All New X-Men #17 and Marvel Universe: Avengers Assemble #1 seem to be on schedule. Also, Marvel was kind enough to contact us and send along the final art images for all the covers, so I will be updating the gallery very soon with the new images.

Daredevil #31

New comic book day this week (Wednesday, always Wednesdays) brings us our second two covers promoting the upcoming LEGO Marvel Super Heroes game. I was very lucky to get both of last weeks covers, but my local shop only gets in 5 copies of Daredevil and I was surprised they get that many honestly. I can’t remember the last time I read a good Daredevil arc, but Marvel has managed to make me want to buy an issue regardless.

Dastardly!

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.

Captain America #12 - LEGO Sketch VariantIron Man #17 - LEGO Sketch Variant

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!

CBR Reveals Two More Marvel Comics LEGO Variant Covers

Uncanny Avengers #12 - LEGO VariantMighty Avengers #1 - LEGO Variant

It’s new comic book day and CBR is celebrating by revealing two more exclusive Marvel Comics LEGO variant covers to help you get over this weeks hump. This time Leonel Castellani has done homages to another Jim Lee cover and Steve Ditko’s “Unmasked by Dr. Octopus!” cover from The Amazing Spider-Man #12. The more I see of these, the more my wallet hurts and I’m beginning to view September through a giddily dreadful delight. These covers will adorn Uncanny Avengers #12 and Mighty Avengers #1, respectively.

I need to call my comic shop.
