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 Civil War Black Panther Pursuit 76047 Photos Preview!

LEGO Captain America Ciivl War Black Panther Pursuit 76047 Box

Although “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” is one of the most popular and renowned movies in the whole Marvel Cinematic Universe, it was a pretty big let-down for LEGO fans, as there were exactly zero boxed sets released for the blockbuster movie. But TLG isn’t making that same mistake again, as they’ve got three sets on deck for “Captain America: Civil War”–and the LEGO Black Panther Pursuit 76047 set will give us our first mass-release Winter Soldier and Black Panther minifigures!

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 Cosmic Boy Minifigure & DC Cosmic Clash DVD Up for Order!

LEGO Cosmic Boy Minifigure with DC Justice League Cosmic Clash Movie

Photos leaked out months and months ago revealing a previously-unannounced LEGO Cosmic Boy minifigure, representing one of the three founding members of the Legion of Super-Heroes. Ever since the Lightning Lad minifigure shipped with the Target exclusive cube a few weeks back, we wondered when the first of his fellow Legionnaires would join him. And now we know: the LEGO DC Justice League Cosmic Clash DVD with Cosmic Boy minifigure is now up for order!

LEGO Batman vs. Superman Kryptonite Interception Photos!

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…

LEGO Carnage’s SHIELD Sky Attack Review & Photos! 76036

LEGO Carnage SHIELD Sky Attack Review

For the most part, the 2015 LEGO Marvel sets are being dominated by sets themed around this year’s Marvel Cinematic Universe movies (Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man). But there are a few goodies for non-movie fans as part of the LEGO Marvel Summer 2015 sets wave, and one of them is the subject of today’s review: it’s the LEGO Carnage’s SHIELD Sky Attack 76036 set!

SDCC 2015 LEGO Arsenal Minifigure Exclusive! Red Arrow!

SDCC 2015 LEGO Arsenal Minifigure Exclusive

If LEGO is really looking to create a stir and earn the hatred of a lot of hardcore superhero fans with their lottery SDCC 2015 exclusives, they’re doing a good job.

First they announced the raffle-only SDCC LEGO Captain America Falcon Minifigure, and now they’ve announced the DC entry: from the beloved TV show “Arrow”, it’s the exclusive LEGO Arsenal Minifigure!

Exclusive SDCC 2015 LEGO DC Action Comics #1 Set!

SDCC 2015 LEGO Action Comics 1 Set with Superman Minifigure

Having been strongly underwhelmed by the first two San Diego Comic-Con 2015 LEGO sets being sold at the show–Throne of Ultron and Dagobah–I wasn’t expecting much from the third set revealed. But as it turns out, the third set really is the charm! While it may be overpriced, the SDCC 2015 exclusive LEGO DC Action Comics #1 Superman set recreating Superman’s first appearance is definitely a fun and inspired choice for a comic book convention exclusive!

SDCC 2015 LEGO All-New Captain America Minifigure!

SDCC 2015 LEGO All-New Captain America Minifigure Falcon Sam Wilson

The moment of truth that most LEGO collectors dread each year has arrived: the San Diego Comic-Con 2015 exclusive LEGO Minifigures are now beginning to be announced! As usual, only a few hundred of each minifigure will be available at SDCC 2015, and you can only win them through a “random” lottery drawing. I was pleased when the Collector (an obscure, mostly unpopular character) was last year’s Marvel exclusive, but LEGO will not be making any friends this year with the SDCC 2015 Exclusive LEGO All-New Captain America Minifigure!
