Wow - first DC set to catch my attention! Amazing sting-ray shape and really nice minifigs!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

How much?

By in United States,

Not entirely related to the set, but I keep forgetting that Aquaman is getting a movie. It's not that I don't want to see Aquaman not be treated as a big joke, but I am just so disinterested in DC movies because they are all over the place. Also, I didn't really dig Dudebro Aquaman from Justice League, so I think I've already written off his movie as being something I don't want. Ugh, nerd world problems.

£25 - £30 in a few months once Amazon inevitably reduce it.

Stud shooter and the bar shooter. I'm sure they could have got flick missiles in there too if they had tried!

Still, nice design for the manta, and much better than the last Aquaman set.

Gravatar

I'm never watching another DCEU movie, but I missed out on the previous black manta, so I'll probably get this for him.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Overall this looks pretty cool, but needs a hefty discount

Gravatar
By in Australia,

Wow, this looks much better when it's not the subject of a blurry photograph. It kind of looks like a super-updated Atlantis set.

Gravatar
By in Norway,

If Mera had a better hairpiece and the price was lower this set would be near perfection :3

Gravatar
By in Serbia,

Sub is nice, but I already have both Aquaman (multiple versions) and Black Manta. I only need Mera.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

So it, ll be roughly £35 in the U.K?
Looks like a great set i love Manta's ship and all 3 minifigs although i would of used a better hair piece for Mera and added her crown too:

Cant wait to see what polybag follows this set.

Gravatar
By in Norway,

"surfaces"
I see what you did there

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Does mera use the same face as jyn erso, or am I imagining the likeness,

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

This set will be available far longer than the film will be in the cinema. Huw is right: once the hype has died down, the price of this set will drop.

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

40 Euros!!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I like that they've done the same with Aquaman as they did with Wonder Woman. It'll be nice having a variant with brighter colours again.

Gravatar
By in United States,

BLACK Manta is actually wearing BLACK this time.

Gravatar
By in New Zealand,

Mera. Nice.

Gravatar
By in Australia,

Looking forward to this wave

Gravatar
By in Denmark,

'Aquaman Set Surfaces'...

*Claps slowly*

@Fandabidozi 'Looking forward to this wave'...

*Claps slowly*

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I shore hope there are more puns on the way

Gravatar
By in Australia,

And here I am just wanting to know if we'll see an 'Aquaman vs. Black Manta' Mighty Micros set in next year's wave.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Ugh, the minifigures look as tacky as the film's new poster.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@Speedchampionsfan you are correct, Mera is using Jyn Erso’s face print.

A surprisingly good set that I’ll have to consider

Gravatar
By in Australia,

I can't even remember if I own the first Black Manta minifig.

Uh ... something something, ocean-themed pun?

Gravatar
By in Germany,

That price.
And LEGO is still wondering why their sets, and Super Heroes especially, don't sell anymore. *shakeshead*

Plus, in the immortal words of Rajesh Ramayan Koothrappali:
Aquaman sucks!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Wow, wow, wow. Hoping that this movie gets more than one set as the concept art for this movie looks incredible and there’s a few other characters I would like to see like Ocean Master. But loving the look of Black Mantas sub.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Looks great! I believe it’s 30$ in the US. I hope to get a Shazam set eventually as well.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Think this needed a spoiler tag as it seems to relate to the Aquaman movie and I had no idea Black Manta was in it.

That said, while I don't like Aquaman that much, I'm digging the Manta ship.

Gravatar
By in United States,

what has DC done to aqua man?

Gravatar
By in Canada,

Nice companion piece to the Justice League set.

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

I don't sea this set making much of a splash, but maybe shell do well for the porpoise of minifig collection.

Gravatar
By in Australia,

Hooray! My first Super Hero set I don’t actually need or want.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@GrizBe- this definitely didn’t need a spoiler tag since Black Manta has been confirmed for the movie since last December, an official image of him was released a month ago, he’s on the SDCC poster, there’s a statue of him at SDCC, and he’ll likely be in the trailer on Saturday.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I like the DCEU movies I've seen so far (man of Steel, batman vs Superman and wonder woman) want to see aquaman before I watch justice league, but the only character I'm really into is Batman - give me a vigilante over a metahuman any day.

This set is way too much for what's included

Gravatar
By in United States,

This is not a bad set in my opinion, as we finally get Mera for the first time as well as Black Manta for the second time, but I may be wrong. The sub actually looks like a nice build, although I kind of question the side build. I guess it's just what the designer could make with the leftover parts in the budget. I will be very happy to get this set. I must admit, 2019 will be a very good year for sets

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'm really digging the Prototype Ion Sith Submarine (PISS - which relates to the price), although don't remember any of these characters from the SW movies...

Gravatar
By in United States,

So, how much in USD?

Gravatar
By in United States,

About $40 in USD, maybe $30 if Lego has any common sense, but I wouldn't count on it.

Next year Lego will complain sales are down and fire some more people for no reason instead of actually addressing the issues.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Well... this is expensive.

Gravatar
By in United States,

As a space fan, this speaks to me. It's funny, we may not have a proper space theme, but occasionally we get some cool stuff from super heroes and even Ninjago.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@CCC i'm going to buy this just to make that modification ^___^

Gravatar
By in United States,

@David1985 LEGO [email protected] and Target list this as $29.99. Strangely, this morning you could order it on Target.com and it would arrive on the 28th

Gravatar
By in United States,

I can see people getting this set for Black Manta but other than that the current 76085 Battle of Atlantis clearing shelves at $7 a pop is a much better parts pack and still gets you an Aquaman. I see this set clearancing out at about $9 a piece post Christmas.

Gravatar
By in United States,

This set just made me realize how perfect the round TIE Fighter hatch/window piece and the Speed Racer window piece go together!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

That is a great wee craft!

Gravatar
By in United States,

I haven't seen the trailers for Aquaman yet (assuming it's out at all) so I didn't realize Black Manta was the baddie. What a smart decision! It'll be great to see him on the big screen.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

Reminds me of some of the last Aquazone sets

Gravatar
By in United States,

@MataNui2009- the first trailer is coming out on Saturday. Black Manta is a side villain and Ocean Master is the primary antagonist of the movie.

Gravatar
By in Sweden,

Pretty nice-looking set, but those prices are silly.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Why does Aquaman in the movies have brown hair?? The whole reason he is a special is that he had golden hair! Am I wrong? Is it because he would have looked too similar to Thor?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

A lot of salty comments here. Some of you are being crabby on porpoise.

Gravatar
By in United States,

And how much will this set be in the US?

Gravatar
By in United States,

The movie doesn't even come out until December though. Why release it in August?

Gravatar
By in United States,

@Your Future President, they likely we’re trying to make him look cooler and more surfer/bro like. I don’t think his golden hair had anything to do with anything. It’s not like how Mary Jane is known for her red hair.

Gravatar
By in United States,

EasyBreezyBricks is right, you can have it in the USA for $30 by Friday with your RedCard. Target Exclusive in the USA.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Perhaps in future rather than a simple view on any recommendation , sets need to have a rating system like a video game. So out of 10:-
build
design
parts
minifigures
price
design (how life like and in non real items how it looks to the film or just in general.
You get the idea . Please introduce this now or asap would love to see & stop any more future sillyness.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Looks suprisingly... Okay, i guess, but $30USD is about 10 clams more than i’m willing to shell out for it.

Gravatar
By in Australia,

^ No, that price for three minifigs, a shark and a medium-to-small sized vehicle?

Geez, they couldn't even do a decent sea-floor beyond a 4 x 4 plate (could they spare it?).

Gravatar
By in United States,

Every LEGO set is 20%+ all the time or most of the time, so really it's a $21-$24 set.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Great to see Mera getting a minifig this time, but so sick of that hairpiece and I don't know why LEGO keeps bringing it back when only a few female minifigs really fit it.

Gravatar
By in Ireland,

this aquaman fig is subpar to the previous aquaman sets fron Justice league (torso and leg prints). glad that i wont be getting this set.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@Zordboy: okay, rephrase, i would be willing to pay $20USD for this set, not 30. My useage of the word “clams,” was intended to be a reference to an (admittedly antiquated) term for “money.” Also, to throw my hat in the ring of bad puns in this comment section. Guess you didn't “sea” what i did there...

Gravatar
By in United States,

The clams reference wasn’t a total wash to me. Then again I’m 50 years old... ;)

Gravatar
By in United States,

I like the pun in the title most of all.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Bit late but here are my thoughts on the new Aquaman movie set. Well I think the new figures are good, that's about it. The sub is a boring black mess with only a cockpit making it a very boring vehicle, honestly I liked the one from the 2015 set better. I was hoping for some cool side build Atlantis structures but none are to been seen. Easy skip considering I got last year's Atlantis set.
