New LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham Game Trailer Features Braniac

DC Entertainment released a new trailer for their upcoming video game, LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham. In terms of gameplay, nothing new is shown but instead the trailer focuses more on revealing the cast of characters. I wish I was more of a DC guy growing up cause I have no idea who most of those people are.

The plot is similar to LEGO Marvel Super Heroes wherein both super heroes and super villains team up to take down a common enemy. Adam West plays the role of the character constantly in danger throughout the game, like how Stan Lee was in LMSH. There’s a proper term for that character but it escapes me at the moment.

The game is scheduled to be released this holiday season around November 28th. Pre-order your copy today from Gamestop to get the exclusive Plastic Man figure pictured below.

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.

Rocket Raccoon Gets His Own Comic and a LEGO Variant Cover Too

Rocket_Raccoon_1_Lego_Variant

For those that don’t pay attention to comics, you may have missed the Rocket Raccoon comic given out on Free Comic Book Day to get fans excited for his first solo ongoing title, written and drawn by Scottie Young. The big news for us is that Marvel has decided to dust off the old LEGO cover concept and give us one dedicated to the man himself, Stan Lee.

A million times yes. A true oversight last year in promotion of the LEGO Marvel Superheroes game, since Stan played such a fun part in it. Luckily, Leonel Castellani has been brought back to correct this oversight. I could do with a few more of these myself (key word being “few”) and I’d love to see one as a Guardians Of The Galaxy variant with the now released full roster of figures. Here is the press release on the comic for those interested in what’s inside this one:

This July, blast off with the smallest Guardian of the Galaxy (packing the biggest gun) in ROCKET RACCOON #1 – written and drawn by Eisner-award winning storyteller Skottie Young! Today, Marvel is proud to present your new look at this highly anticipated ongoing series launching ahead of one of the biggest movies of the Summer!

As defenders of the cosmos go, Rocket Raccoon has faced his fair share of battles. He’s been a hero to the weak, a champion of the good, and a protector the innocent. Not to mention a heartthrob to many intergalactic species across the galaxy. But is he ready to be…a fugitive?!

Framed for a crime he didn’t commit, Rocket and his pal Groot’s high-flying life of adventure and heroism may be a thing of the past as he’ll soon find himself on the run and on the wrong side of the law. And the authorities aren’t the only one’s hot on his TAIL! (Too easy). An intergalactic boxing match, fierce alien creatures, and a deadly militia of Rocket’s ex-girlfriends known only as the Exterminators – and that’s just the FIRST ISSUE!

“Despite Rocket’s attitude and antics he has a heart under there, says Skottie Young, in an interview with Marvel.com. “He has some things he may or may not want to need in his life. He’s going to have to examine that. When you’re believed to be the last of your kind left in this galaxy or all the galaxies, that’s something you carry with you. That plays a role in the way you operate. We’ll see him explore that a little bit.”

“But ya know, right after that he’ll probably shoot some stuff,” he continued.

It’s one raccoon (but whatever you do, DO NOT call him a raccoon) against the entire galaxy this July as superstar creator Skottie Young brings his A-game! And the galaxy won’t even know what hit it! You do not want to miss the highly anticipated ROCKET RACCOON #1 when it blasts its way into comic shops and digital devices this July 2nd!

The only odd thing is that Rocket is one of the Marvel characters Stan had no hand in creating and he was almost not included as a cameo in the film, so him showing up on this comic is kind of funny. I personally, will be laughing all the way to the comic book shop.

Excelsior!

Last Trailer for LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Featuring Stan Lee, New Poster

Warner Bros. Interactive released the last trailer for the game featuring a voice over by none other than Stan Lee himself. And it’s awesome. Makes me want to play the game more so than ever before. The trailer is a tad spoilery though in that shows what I consider a plot development for what I assume is the final boss battle of the game. View at your own risk.

Also, a new poster came out:

If This Be Doomsday!

Fantastic-Four-VS-Galactus

This scene by baronsat isn’t just a great build filled with nice customizations and excellent parts usage, it’s a an exciting homage to the silver age of comics and a walk down memory lane for this long time comic book guy. If you know nothing about comics you might think this fellow is the Space Pope due to the big hat and fancy duds, but you’d be wrong. The Space Pope is a lizard, dude.

This creation is the coming of Galactus.

Sentinel Prime

Sentinel-Wolverine-01

The release date for the Marvel Superheroes sets is getting closer and more and more people are building things in anticipation of these long-awaited minifigs. Take baronsat for instance, he’s looking forward to an official Wolverine fig, but that hasn’t stopped him from making his own James Howlett and giving him a Sentinel to take out his frustations on. The mutant hunter is very much like the design LEGO might use themselves (if they were to create one, fingers crossed) based on the Buzz Lightyear build and even includes the thrusters in its feet. I titled this “Prime” because this is the first of what I hope are many great Sentinel builds, it will also make sense to the die-hard X fans and because I totally wanted to mess with people…
