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.

More Marvel LEGO Variant Covers Surface

Wolverine & the X-men #36 - LEGO Variant Cover

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.

Updated: A Brand New Day For LEGO Comic Variant Covers

Daredevil #31 - LEGO Spider-man Variant

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.

Marvel Announces LEGO Variant Covers Coming In September

Hawkeye #15 LEGO Variant
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…
