DC’s panel in Hall H today revealed the first image of Gal Gadot in her Wonder Woman costume. This version is more Amazonian battle armour and less stars and stripes, but that fits with where they seem to be going. They also showed the first teaser of from the film featuring Superman facing down Ben Affleck’s caped crusader in an armoured suit much like the one from The Dark Knight Returns. I’m not going to post the leaked cell phone pictures here, but they are out there if you look hard enough.

It’s always a treat to see how LEGO decorates the corners of their booth at Toy Fair. This year they are understandably making a push on their hot new IP line, LEGO Super Heroes, and their feminist-angering girl-friendly line, LEGO Friends.
The Super Heroes corners was the most interesting. Rather than going with a mural or a large statue, a bas relief of Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman adorned one corner. It was a combination of a studs-out mural type of build with a traditional sculpture construction technique.
And finally, LEGO had an approximately six-and-a-half-feet-by-six-and-a-half-feet tall sculpture of the Hulk minifig on the conventional hall floor. Lean, mean, and green, it will probably give you an idea of what the final painted face will look like for Hulk if you squint your eyes and blur your vision a bit.
Paul Lee, LEGO Ambassador for LUGOLA and all around good guy, set the theme for the Costa Mesa LEGO Brand Retail store for the next few weeks: Superheroes of Marvel and DC Comics. The display featured some large scale figs of famous superheroes from both brands, though DC Comics had a slightly larger presence. SandLUG member Matt Armstrong (monsterbrick), Mariann Asanuma (Model Gal) along with LUGOLA members Ezra (B. Ezra), Paul Lee (polywen), and myself helped fill out the display with miniland scale superheroes, miniature models, m-wings, and other items all to promote next year’s Superheroes license.
You can get a close up of Ezra’s contributions in his photostream.
I was under the impression that the LEGO booth would have some of the actual DC Comics and/or Marvel Comics sets on display. Unfortunately, that was not the case. They did have what appeared to be near-final prototypes of DC Comics minifigs of Batman, Catwoman, Joker, Wonder Woman, and Poison Ivy. Marvel Comics minifigs were represented by Thor, Iron Man, Wolverine, The Hulk, and Captain America, but those were in various early prototype stages. I didn’t realize until I finally got back to my room and downloaded the images how they actually looked, so I’m going to try and take some better pics tomorrow. Until then, enjoy.
Variety reported a few hours ago that LEGO now has the full DC Comics license. In short, expect to see LEGO sets based on their most popular characters including Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and villains the Joker, Bane, Harley Quinn and Lex Luthor.
LEGO will unveil the initial wave of sets at Comic Con which kicks off tomorrow night. 3,000 minifigs of Batman and Green Lantern will be
given away “distributed”. FBTB will be there all week, so stay tuned for our full coverage.

Warner Bros. has expanded its relationship with Lego, granting the toymaker access to DC Entertainment’s complete library of comicbook characters and stories to launch DC Universe “Super Heroes” as figures and playsets.
The multi-year licensing deal, made through Warner Bros. Consumer Products, will start rolling out the new line in January, starting with 13 characters, including Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and villains the Joker, Bane, Harley Quinn and Lex Luthor.
The first toys will be shown off at the Lego booth at Comic-Con Intl. in San Diego, where 3,000 exclusive Batman and Green Lantern minifigures will be distributed to launch a promo that runs August-December, enabling fans to create and submit videos, photos or illustrations of the characters to win trips to Legoland and Warner Bros. Studios.
WB and Lego had already been producing toys and videogames around the Batman franchise, and will launch a new set of playthings around next summer’s “The Dark Knight Rises” through the Lego Batman collection. The “Lego Batman: The Videogame,” published by WB Bros. Interactive Entertainment, has sold more than 12 million units since 2008.”This partnership gives builders a chance to recreate the characters, vehicles and worlds of some of the most iconic super heroes, so they can relive the action and even customize it, a proven and winning formula in Lego construction,” said Jill Wilfert, VP, licensing and entertainment for the Lego Group.
