A little digging has turned up two more Marvel LEGO variant covers with Wolverine & The X-men #36 above and Marvel Universe Avengers Assemble #1 below courtesy of Newsarama & Comics Alliance respectively. Finally, we see a character that hasn’t appeared yet in minifig form. Yay, Falcon! They seem to be trickling out steadily now as September gets closer. We’ll keep you updated as they appear.

CBR has hit the Jackpot with an exclusive look at the LEGO variant cover for Daredevil #31, coming to help promote the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes game this September. Big Spidey fan here and even though I wasn’t keen on the whole Brand New Day debacle, I like the cover and will probably just put this up in a frame because I don’t collect Daredevil. The question is; if Spider-man is on the Daredevil cover, does that mean the man without fear will be MIA in the game? As it stands, we’ve seen no new characters that haven’t already appeared in actual plastic. That could be good for fans of those specific figs if we end up with multiple classic cover homages each, but personally I’d rather see some variety. I mean, who doesn’t want to see Rocket Raccoon in minifig form?
Spread the love around Marvel.
Update: Marvel also posted this Variant cover for Nova #8 last night. At this point (which, admittedly it’s still early with only a handful of covers revealed) it seems lucky for Nova that he already has a minifig.
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 A.I. #4
Captain America #12
Fantastic Four #13
Guardians Of The Galaxy #7
Indestructible Hulk #14
Iron Man #17
Marvel Universe: Avengers Assemble #1
Mighty Avengers #1
New Avengers #11
Secret Avengers #10
Superior Spider-Man #19
Thor: God Of Thunder #14
Uncanny Avengers #12
Wolverine & The X-Men #36
I’m down for one at least. For now…
