Damn you LEGO overlords! Yesterday it was announced at New York Comic Con that in 2013 we will see sets based on the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles television series.
LEGO released the first official images of 79104 The Shellraiser Street Chase on Thursday. The set will retail for approximately $59.99 and will feature five minifigures including Michelangelo and Leonardo.
Here’s the thing, LEGO is devious when it comes to these licensed sets. Take a look at the recent Marvel Superheroes and Lord of The Rings sets, it was impossible to get the entire lineup without spending at least $300 to $400. For example, LEGO Loki was available in 3 separate sets, while The Black Widow and The Hulk were only available in one set each. And as far as Lord of The Rings goes, I’ll let you do the arithmetic.
