UPDATE: It’s confirmed – here your first look at the LEGO Marvel Minifigures series!
A ton of rumours are flying around the internet of LEGO’s Second Half releases, but one in particular stood out to me – that we may be getting a LEGO Marvel Collectible Minifigures series in August 2021.
And yes, it’s only January and LEGO Minifigures Series 21 still isn’t widely available yet.
This is particularly notable because LEGO has never worked with Marvel on a Collectible Minifigure series.
We’ve had a full DC Comics Series last year, and two LEGO Batman Movie series in 2018 and 2017 which has been great in introducing fan favourites like Super-man, Batman, but also niche characters like Calculator, and Eraser to the mix.
Marvel is on a whole other level, thanks to the Marvel Cinematic Universe for raising the bar when it comes to their stable of characters.
Disney have a really vast library of characters to tap for this series, if this is actually happening, LEGO will be spoilt for choice. Do they go big-name MCU characters, explore the X-Men/Inhumans, or go with popular fan-favourite characters that are not part of the MCU such as Hercules or Namor?
LEGO and Marvel’s partnership has largely revolved around cinematic releases, so what I think is likely is that we’ll see characters and minifigures from Disney’s upcoming slate of streaming TV series, given that they won’t have the same marketing arsenal attached to them as cinematic releases.
Remember, this is still a very, very fresh rumour so take this with a pinch of salt and it may not happen. Remember the rumoured Star Wars Collectible Minifigures series that was supposed to come this year?
Anyway, that’s it for now, and just wanted to share this and strike up a discussion.
Who would you like to see featured in a LEGO Marvel minifigure series?
For me, hands down it’d be a Daredevil minifigure. It’s about damn time, LEGO!
