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 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!

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…
