Earlier today I posted my thoughts on the just-announced LEGO Marvel Summer 2016 sets over on my Marvel blog, and now it’s time to take a (textual) look at the Distinguished Competition with this summer’s wave of DC Super Heroes. There’s not a lot to be excited about quantitatively in the LEGO DC Summer 2016 sets–there’s only three sets and one is a Juniors set–but there’s plenty to get psyched about qualitatively! Coming this summer: all-new minifigures including Blue Beetle, Katana, Killer Moth, redesigned Killer Croc and Scarecrow, and more!

LEGO Batman 2016 Gotham City Cycle Chase Set Photos!

LEGO Suicide Squad DC Set Batman Gotham City Cycle Chase

I had been planning on not discussing the final Winter 2015 LEGO DC Superheroes set until more than one photo of the set had come out, but sharp-eyed readers noticed the set right away in my photos preview of the DC Mighty Micros sets yesterday and demanded to hear more. And thus, though we only have one image to go on–for now–let’s take a look at the sole comics-based LEGO Batman set coming this winter: it’s the Suicide Squad-inspired LEGO Batman Gotham City Cycle Chase 76053!

2016 LEGO DC Mighty Micros Sets Photos Preview!

LEGO DC 2016 Robin vs Bane Mighty Micros 76062 Set

Over the weekend, I posted my photos preview of the LEGO Marvel Mighty Micros sets over on my Marvel Toys blog. While the Star Wars Micro-Fighters really grew on me, I thought the Marvel Mighty Micros were a bit too, well… wacky. But it turns out that while most Marvel fans weren’t thrilled about it, many LEGO fans are pretty excited about this new sub-theme, so now, let’s take a look at the trio of LEGO DC Mighty Micros sets!

LEGO Batman v Superman Clash of the Heroes 76044 Revealed!

LEGO Clash of the Heroes Set Batman v Superman

Happy Star Wars Day! It seems a bit ironic, but as things turn out, I’ve already talked about all of the LEGO Star Wars Winter 2016 sets, so there’s nothing Star Wars-related for me to discuss on this momentous day. Alas! But there’s plenty to discuss on the superhero-ing front, including the official reveals of the last Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice set! It’s already been found in stores by some lucky builders, and now TLG has officially announced the 2016 LEGO Clash of the Heroes 76044 set!

LEGO Batman vs. Superman Kryptonite Interception 76045 Box

Though I would be perfectly content to discuss the new winter 2016 LEGO Star Wars sets every day, there’s another movie coming out in just a few months that a “few” folks are excited about, so today let’s turn our attention to the DC Universe! We first saw a sneak peek at the new Batmobile way back in July, and now the complete LEGO Batman v Superman Kryptonite Interception 76045 set has been revealed!

LEGO DC 2016 Heroes of Justice Sky High Battle 76046!

LEGO Batman vs Superman Heroes of Justice Sky High Battle 76046 Set Revealed

Despite a few notable bright spots such as the LEGO Ghostbusters Firehouse and the Brick Bank Modular Building, this fall has been pretty, well… boring… for LEGO 2016 sets news. But while it seems we’re going to have to wait longer for the deluge of news on all the winter sets, one major reveal has already happened this weekend: the first LEGO Batman vs. Superman set has appeared! It’s the 76046 Heroes of Justice Sky High Battle–with Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman Minifigures!

LEGO Batman Jokerland 76035 Set Review & Photos

LEGO Clown Head from LEGO Batman Jokerland Summer 2015 Set

If you follow the Bricks and Bloks Facebook Page (and if you don’t–shame on you), you’ve probably noticed that I’ve been posting photos and teasing a review of a certain highly-anticipated set for the past week.

While the LEGO Jokerland 76035 Summer 2015 set won’t officially release in the United States until next week, my favorite fellow collector Dave M. tracked one down that snuck out early at Toys R Us! And after a monumental amount of prodding and harassment, I finally convinced Dave to compose a full LEGO Jokerland review and photo gallery…

It’s the limited-edition LEGO Bat-Pod set, limited to just 750 pieces produced!

Now that things have slowed down and I’ve had a chance to sort through the thousands of photos I took at the 2015 New York Toy Fair, it’s time for coverage to continue! While I talked about the spectacular LEGO Jokerland 76035 set a few weeks back, there was one more LEGO Batman Summer 2015 set publicly on display for the first time at the 2015 Toy Fair: the LEGO Batboat Harbor Pursuit 76034!

New York Toy Fair 2015 LEGO Jokerland 76035

If you’re a LEGO DC fan, there wasn’t a whole lot to get excited about at New York Toy Fair 2015. After the healthy helping of LEGO Justice League sets we got in January to kick-start the year, there are just two LEGO DC Super Heroes Summer 2015 sets coming–and both of them are Batman-related. Luckily, one of the sets is gigantic and absolutely amazingly fun–it’s the LEGO Jokerland 76035 set… with LEGO Starfire, Beast Boy and more!
