What's with the 1x2 jumper plates?

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

Love that flash! And those extra tiles next to them give them the illusion of flying/floating/jumping?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Each figure gets a jumper plate and transparent piece to hold them aloft - what a sensible inclusion.

Inb4 this is used as an excuse to raise the price of the figures. I will probably only nab Batman and maybe Mr Miracle once I see the close-up.

I’m not a DC fan but Star Girl and Jay Garrick are amazing

By in Australia,

We get Simon Baz, but still no Kyle Rayner?

What is it going to take, Lego? Come on.

Although I love love LOVE how they've picked the badass 90s Aquaman.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Damn.. more money spent.. if they sell this at my local Sainsbury's I know I'll keep picking them up until I get them all (even ones we have numerous versions of already!).

Has to be said though - STILL no Saturn Girl??

Hard pass on DC...Bring us a MARVEL CMF series.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Why is Cyborg with those purple chains? I may aim for Star Girl but if LEGO is doing this with DC they could end up with SW (man no, it's almost impossible to get these let alone on a Stormtrooper blind bags).

Gravatar
By in Hungary,

Can't wait for these to clog shelfspace instead of tlbm2 packs (for some reason dc's just not popular here, which is sadly at the detriment of non-branded waves - having a hard time finding wave 19)

Gravatar
By in United States,

I love the way they did the box, it's a better layout for action comic themed characters.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Quite frankly shocked that no one has mentioned the Dark Knight Returns Joker. It looks excellent

Gravatar
By in Germany,

Dr.Who would be a nice series

Gravatar
By in Czech Republic,

Eventhough I have most of the collectable minifigs, I have absolutely no idea, who at least in half of this lot is who.. Very easy pass! When are we going to get star wars Collectable minifigs? The rest already exists with these I guess..

Gravatar
By in United States,

You do know that BFAB got his hands on these months ago...

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Cool. If they do a Marvel set I might be all over that one.

Gravatar
By in Greece,

Superheroes...yeah...ok. I will happily skip this one so as to complete previous series left unfinished

Gravatar
By in Germany,

Seeing how badly Superhero sets sell over here I wonder if we get this CMF series at all. I don't know anyone who would miss it tbh.

And @Golem25: raise the price? You mean these are supposed to sell for even more than the already totally insane 3.99 per figure that hardly anyone actually pays?

Gravatar
By in Germany,

@The_Teenage_Brickster yes, Brickset adheres to the rules, and doesn't post about unreleased sets, unless they are seen for sale in shops.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Remember: this may not be for you, but it's for somebody. (And for those of us who like superheroes, this is a nice way to start getting figures without waiting for them to randomly show up in a set.)

They could keep this vaguely predictable by consistently including a few figures from various eras in each wave, depending on how long it goes. For example, each wave could include: 1) 1-2 Golden Age heroes; 2) 1-2 Silver Age Heroes; 3) 3-4 80s/90s heroes; 4) 1-2 "modern" characters, and 5) a few Elseworlds takes (like TDKR Joker there).

Tossing out ideas for some future waves that I'd like to see:

- Alan Scott Green Lantern (doesn't even require a new mold)
- Doctor Fate (needs a helmet mold)
- The Spectre
- The Atom (with microfig accessory)--probably the only major Justice Leaguer we haven't seen
- Batman Beyond
- TDKR Batman
- Saturn Girl (to round out the Lightning Lad and Cosmic Boy we got years ago)
- Mary Marvel
- Gaslight Batman

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Somewhat interested in the retro Batman, Flash and Joker figs but apart from that I think its a pretty weird series. I can't imagine that there are many golden age fans to buy this stuff. Kind of want the Bat-mite fig, or whatever he's called, just for the comic book piece.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Didn't even notice that was a Dark Knight Returns joker. I'm a big fan of that book so will defo grab that to go with my Mutant Leader fig.

Gravatar
By in United States,

For those DC nerds who want to know, there are 12 new characters in this series.
They are:
Batman (Earth 2)
Bat-Mite
Bumblebee
Flash (Earth 2)
Green Lantern (Simon Baz)
Huntress
Metamorpho
Mister Miracle
Cheetah (Earth 2)
Joker (Earth 31)
Star Girl
Wonder Woman (Earth 2)

By in United States,

Getting all of these. Love the obscure characters! As a huge DC fan though I am disappointed that some more popular characters didn’t make it into the lineup such as Doctor Fate, Red Tornado, Zatanna, and Booster Gold.

@Lordmoral the purple chains are reminiscent of the chains Cyborg is breaking out of on the cover of the comic he debuts in. That’s what this iteration is from.

@ResIpsaLoquitur The Atom is my second favorite comic book character behind Batman, I was really hoping he would show up here.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Yeah! Of course, I'm always going to say give us another version of my favorite, Firestorm!

Gravatar
By in Canada,

@ResIpsaLoquitur & @Double_J_Bricks. Isn't there a SDCC Comic Con version of Atom?

Hey, can we see re-releases of characters that got the SDCC treatment, even if it's different looks or something? I mean, the packaging and prints could still be 'unique' but new heads and things and bam, instant DC SDCC re-releases of characters like Bizarro or Vixen.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@Double_J_Bricks thanks for the answer, they actually are very symbolic in hindsight.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Yes! Pretty happy about these. Would be nice to have The Atom and Booster Gold.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Lets see some a Marvel minifigure series people, we've seen now 3 DC Comics series, why no Marvel?

Gravatar
By in United States,

I think it is great people are getting more of the licensed minifigures they want, I just wish it didn't coincide with a pull back on regular collectible minifigure releases. I am one of those odd people that dislike the flesh faced minifigures.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

For those wondering why there's no Marvel or Star Wars minifig series, it's because of Hasbro. They own exclusive rights to make and sell action figures of both those franchises, and a minifig on its own would count as this. It's the same reason why the Lego Star Wars comic always features mini builds rather than figures and the Lego Marvel comic... just straight up doesn't exist.

Lego can only sell Marvel and Star Wars minifigs as part of a building toy, not on their own. Presumably this doesn't apply to convention exclusives, just to mass retail. If Lego tried to make a CMF Marvel series, Hasbro could happily take them to court, and would win relatively quickly. The only solution would be for Lego to make a deal with Hasbro to allow it, but there's no reason to believe this would be happening any time soon.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

I love Marvel but everyone begging for a Marvel series appears to have no idea how toy rights work. Hasbro has the action figure rights so LEGO can’t make a CMF series based off of Marvel without getting into a legal battle. I’ll gladly take a DC series, though- this one is awesome and filled with so many random obscure characters and designs! No happy about the price going up though so I’ll probably only pick these up on sale.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Notwithstanding Supes and his usual boring self, awesome assortment for boosting Batman and the other DC figs I've collected — now if only a Booster Gold and stretchy arms Plastic Man were in there. But super hooray for Skirted Wonder Woman and Jay Garrick Flash.

By in Finland,

@Bobsy the lego star wars magazine has included minifigs in the past

Gravatar
By in United States,

these are going to sell like crazy.

Gravatar
By in United States,

And yay, another new fish color to use for my Modular fresh seafood market.

Gravatar
By in United States,

This looks like a pretty neat series, full of appropriately colorful characters!

Gravatar
By in United States,

There have been so many DC and Marvel sets released that I'm surprised the people who want them wouldn't already have them. Now they release a series of them instead of something new?

Gravatar
By in United States,

@The_Toniboeh and that's a gift with the magazine, not the primary purchase itself.

I know it's fun to play comments section lawyer, but this has been discussed over and over and over: where Hasbro has an action figure IP, Lego cannot make and sell individual minifigures by themselves. Believe us, everybody would love it if they sold a box of JUST Stormtrooper parts. It's not going to happen.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I love Mystery Minifigures, but DC isn't my favorite.
However, I watch CW's The Flash, so that Jay Garrick Minifigure is what I've got my eyes on!

Gravatar
By in Poland,

My favourite is Batman and Joker

Gravatar
By in United States,

I for one love that the DC licensing allows for dipping deeply into DC history. It's super cool for fans, and must be fun for the designers at LEGO as well to not be restricted to just whatever movie is out at any given time.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Now then... this does bring a smile to my face, some of i want twice simon baz being one of them for the lantern, i also love cheetah, wonder woman which will be my 3rd one if i get her and the joker n white tuxedo is awesome...

I'm also looking forward to seeing Harry Potter minifig series 2..

Gravatar
By in United States,

@ResIpsaLoquitur, while that rumor of the Hasbro IP and action figure license has been around for years, even decades, there has never been proof that it actually exists. It makes sense, which is why the rumor has persisted for so long, but there has never been any actual proof, only ever internet rumor and speculation. And I've been collecting Lego and Star Wars toys for over 30 years at this point.

I think the more likely scenario is that Star Wars minifigures alone often drive sales of sets. People bought the Super Destroyer of years past simply for the bounty hunter minifigures. Lego would be leaving money on the table if it made a Star Wars collectible figure line. Why sell a coveted figure for $3.99 when you could get people to pay $30 for it in a regular set? I can't count the number of times someone here has said they'll have to buy a particular set solely because of a minifigure.

Not many other licenses have that ability to sell sets simply for the figures.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'm not much for DC but I've watched The Flash tv show and Jay Garrick looks accurate (not going to say anything else to spoil things)

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I like the classic Flash helmet, and Wonder Woman's dress.
Let's hope Cheetah's hair/helmet piece is re-used in different colours in future, as it is pretty cute. An updated Friends costume shop, or dress-up pop band perhaps?
On the box, it looks like Sinestro is carrying a bong, but I presume it's a yellow version of Green Lanter's lamp? And this version of Green Lantern looks more like Bane!
Star Girl looks like a clone of the Chinese clone-bricks one that's been on eBay for years.
As for Cyborg,
N O B O D Y
C A R E S .

Gravatar
By in United States,

Bat-Mite? Bumblebee? Count me in!

The Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Cyborg, and Joker figures feel a bit too samey to what we've gotten before and feel like they could've been in their own sets, but aside from that a great series! Personally I would've dropped Superman and Cyborg for a Brave and the Bold style Blue Beetle and the Mad Hatter.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

This is the best thing to happen since TLBM CMF wave 2. A whole slew of new characters there for the having, and not a Bat-mech/sub/copter in sight! There's a fantastic selection, including some essentials (how it took this long to get Helena is beyond me) and interesting wild cards. I can't wait for these! I hope they do this every year, tbh. Skip the January DC Superheroes wave of "Bat-crap sets with that one figure you actually want" and give us a sweet CMF series like this!

Gravatar
By in Norway,

Nah.. I have all the previous 20 series + the lisenced ones. Looks like this one gives me a reason to take a break collecting the CMF as none of these is appealing. Finally some money saved.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Wish they had included some more figures from the tv shows, still wishing for a crew of Legends and Frost :)

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

@zordboy.. I mentioned possible minifigs when the rumours were circulating on Instagram and I was hoping for..
Kyle Rayner, Guy Gardner, Alan scott, Abin Surr TV series supergirl & manhunter and Zatanna..

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Bye bye Fake Lego Jay Garrick... and Hello official Lego Jay Garrick... :D

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I know a lot might disagree with me but what a disappointing series, none of these figures really are too much appealing to me

Gravatar
By in United States,

I really like the Golden Age versions. It's too bad they couldn't do just a whole series of just Golden Age heroes. Probability won't do so well with the general audiences. There were several that I needed to look up as I'm not much of a DC fan. For me a couple of a little too obscure, Mister Miracle, Bumblebee and Star Girl. There's a really lack of villains in my opinion. And there's two I don't understand, Bat-Mit and Simon Baz's Green Lantern. Bat-Mit (why, just why) is too weird and Batman at its worst . And if not going to do Alan Scott (too many Golden Age already) or Hal Jordan as Green Lantern at least do John Steward.

Hopefully this means a Marvel series might be in the works. This would be the perfect opportunity to do a much of X-Men without the need for a set or for every set to have Wolverine.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Stargirl & Huntress are my standouts.
May also get the Jay Garrick Flash

Gravatar
By in United States,

@quixotequest , that link you provided is interesting, but I still don't see where it mentions Lego can't make individual figures. Obviously that's a really old agreement, from 1997, so we don't know what the current license says. All it basically says is that Hasbro has a license for Star Wars toys. I still haven't seen something come out and say Lego can not individually sell minifigures because it conflicts directly with a Hasbro license. Lego obviously has some type of license since they make Marvel and Star Wars products. Plus you have the issue of polybags and giveaways figures, which are essentially individually packaged minifigures.

The theory makes sense, but again there just hasn't been actual proof linking it. Not to get off track though, lol.

Gravatar
By in Australia,

Not interested in most of these although I might pick up a few because they have such awesome accessories (GL in particular and maybe Superman for the cool Daily Planet tile)

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'm old enough to have read the original Mister Miracle comics (Jack Kirby!) and the Metamorpho comics so I'm looking forward to those two CMFs – the rest, eh...

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

@Klinton77, yeah I know they made a Killer Frost figure last year, but she looks nothing like the tv version, which is why I wish they would make some of the Arrowverse characters :)

Gravatar
By in United States,

Superheroes as a theme really doesn't interest me, but these are really well done.

I'm wondering how LEGO was able to produce these? Because Mattel recently lost the DC action figure license? Wonder if at some point, we will see a Star Wars CMF theme once Hasbro's contract is up?

Gravatar
By in Australia,

I think the best part is that they go back to the days before Marvel took power. Batman (39), Joker and Wonder Woman all look good.

This is generally a better series than I first thought, but a Marvel series would be better.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Theres only really 3 must haves in this series for me being the Classic Batman, Bat-mite and Joker figures.

Rest of them are kinda meh, though may pick up Metamorpho, Stargirl and Huntress.

Simon Baz Green Lantern though? Seriously, he's massively unpopular... make Kyle Rayner already!

Gravatar
By in United States,

WOW. I NEED Metamorpho I never thought Lego would make such an obscure character!

Gravatar
By in United States,

I predict a series 2, with DKR Batman to go with this Joker. Also a first appearance Superman.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@Odeinoichus yes he did, however it was the version of the Atom from the Legends of Tomorrow TV show where he rarely ever does his trademark shrinking and is mostly an Iron Man rip-off. It would have been great to see a comic version of him

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Next series, please give us Power Girl along with Deathstroke.
Arkham Knight Batman and Arkham Knight himself would be fun too.
Also possibly an Injustice design or two in the future?
John Constantine
And as someone else mentioned, Batman Beyond. would be GREAT.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Please do marvel instead. don't get me wrong, DC is cool ,and all, but Marvel is way more popular with better characters

Gravatar
By in United States,

Do we know a release date for these?

Gravatar
By in New Zealand,

Really Flat.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

I'm well aware that Lego is unable to make a minifig set of Marvel Superheroes. Doesn't matter. I'm just not interested in a DC set. Just a Spider-Verse set on its own would be terrific, and I can think of another that would be just Fantastic...

Gravatar
By in United States,

All I want is Guy Gardner...and maybe Kilowog.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@monkyby87: indeed it may not seem the kind of 'proof' you expect, but there is no reason for Disney/Lucasfilm, Hasbro or The Lego Group to disclose the terms and limits of the current Agreement.

Yet as someone who once worked in product development and affiliate licensing with Sony Pictures, it is useful to examine what -is available- to see how exceptions around the master General Toys license were created. In that period the Galoob example, then producing the Micro Machines toys, is illustrative. (Longer agreement link follows-- scroll down to Schedule II to see that figures are addressed.)

Thus given rights of refusal that would carry into subsequent periods, and knowing all toys that Hasbro makes today, it is reasonable to expect that there would be limitations for category exceptions for the toys that TLG makes and markets. Thus when something very obvious (like individually packaged Minifigures) are not created for a licensed IP that would be natural to expect and exploit in planning and executing for sake of the product portfolio, it is completely natural and probable to expect licensing agreement restrictions are a good explanation.

By in United States,

I'm far more of a Marvel fan than a DC fan but the Marvel comments are so annoying on this lol

I have to admit I'm a little underwhelmed, having been intrigued by the idea. I'll probably pick some randoms up, they look like fine minifigures, but the only one that'd tease me into hunting it down is that Joker, and mostly for the hair/head, and probably Huntress. None of the minifigures involved are really grabbing me as much as I'd expected, with the ones impressing me mostly being the few with custom hair/headpiece elements. I'm happy for Simon Baz as a friend really wanted him but don't find his minifigure design to my taste. Batman '39 is one I may need to see a better image. Still, they aren't *bad* minifigures and I'm sure lots of kids and collectors will be happy with them.

Mostly just reminding me about previous DC figs I never grabbed, like Green Arrow, Supergirl, Black Canary, etc.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Finally a step in the right direction. While I expect an unwelcome price increase, at least kids with less money have a better chance of collecting their favourite characters with variant costume choices.

Regarding the legal issue: The Marvel range may have to be a tiny building set that includes a MF at another price increase.

Note: The Huntress used to wear a crucifix non? TLG could not keep a religious symbol so it is a white 'T' instead.

Gravatar
By in Ireland,

Great, another series to skip.

Gravatar
By in United States,

On the topic of the Marvel and Star Wars license, there are always ways around it. Don't forget Funko makes tons of Marvel and Star Wars products despite Hasbro having their own line cutesy pop figures. How? They made them bobble head figures, which Hasbro does NOT have the rights to produce. So, give every minifigure a small, 5 piece build, officially name the product after the build, and then bam, there's your figure. For example, Lego could make bricks to spell out 'Marvel Rules!' that just happen to come with a minifig. It all has to do with how you define what you are selling.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Gotta catch ‘em all!

Gravatar
By in United States,

I’m split on this series. I’m a massive Batman fan and usually purchase just about anything related but not a huge DC fan overall so really only about half of these appeal to me. I would have much rather seen a Marvel CMF series, or better yet, a Star Wars one (my favorite)

Gravatar
By in Serbia,

But what about the marvel polybags? Namely LEGO Hulk Minifig Polybag (5000022)? Or SW buildable figure, those are very action figures? And also all the SW polybags both from magazines or promos? I think they just believe DC sells well, and after Joker movie, think this will pick up... That said... I do not care for these figs

Gravatar
By in United States,

so many great people but Jay Garrick has to be my most wanted

Gravatar
By in United States,

Hard pass for me. Enough with the licenses.

Gravatar
By in United States,

So... still gotta wait for DC CMF series two for Samurai with Gleek? Finish the damn Superfriends!

Gravatar
By in United States,

As a longtime DC reader, this is wonderful. Not sure why they chose a modern Superman when they could have provided a Golden Age version to accompany Wonder Woman and Batman. But I'm most happy about the power rings and batteries for Sinestro and Simon Baz. Guess I'll have to buy some extras to equip the already available Green Lanterns. Here's hoping Series 2 will finally include some Legionnaires, like the aforementioned Saturn Girl.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I can see why TLG included most of these
but why have more than one Batman, or Superman?
When they have already produced many versions of those characters in sets...
Do some more of the lesser characters ..... please.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

^ Batman (and to a lesser extent, Superman) sells. So they have multiple occurences of them.

Personally, I find these completely boring. I'll get a few but to me they look like they will be as popular as TLBM CMF series 2. So I'll buy the few I want at £1.50 each.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Looks like maybe it's being released to coincide with the New Year's Evil comic book

Gravatar
By in United States,

i wish lego would do a marvel series or a star wars or maybe a flash series or a for 10 dollars a big-fig series. but i love the jay garrick and Green Lantern those are my top two but i well get as many i can get my hands on.

Gravatar
By in Japan,

Drat, gonna have to rework the LEGO budget! I needs me that Huntress and Rebirth Sups.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Golden-Age characters!!!

By in United States,

MISTER MIRACLE!!!

By in United States,

Two sets on which I’d be happy to spend money:

Space Cabbie with his taxicab and Roxie Rocket with her space cycle.

Vanishing Point with Booster Gold featuring a buildable Chronovore (with removable crystal in its belly) and several time anti-bodies.

Come on LEGO, shake things up a little!
