As a collector and lifelong fan of LEGO, their 2012 lineup is very impressive. Not only did they renew their DC Comics license but also landed the rights to Marvel Comics. We saw bits and pieces of the Marvel sets at Toy Fair 2012. Being that some of the sets were tied into The Avengers, Marvel and LEGO opted to wait it out.
Well that didn’t last long as Toys R Us posted updated box art, which gives a closer look at the villains Loki enlists to wreak havoc on Earth’s mightiest heroes.
SPOILERISH SPECULATION ALERT!!!
These little guys sure are alien looking as they swoosh around on their version Serpentor’s Air Chariot. This all but confirms for me that we’ll be seeing Skrulls in The Avengers. Also notice the purple accents … another indicator. The Skrulls have been rumored for a while, but I don’t think we’ll have the official confirmation until we are closer to the release of The Avengers.
As far as the sets go, I’m definitely going to pick up the Captain America set … and possibly the Quinjet as well. Unfortunately the completest in me will have no choice but to buy them all so I can get The Avengers lineup in LEGO minifigure form.
