We’re in the midst of London Toy Fair 2016, with a big no-photos-allowed display for Lego taking up a large space amongst the other toys. And it looks as though all the DC and Marvel Superhero sets for Summer 2016 have been on display, including a lot of new figures never seen before – and for some very unexpected characters!
Web Warriors Bridge Battle – this set features Spider-Man, Spider-Girl (Mayday, it seems), Scarlet Spider (Amadeus Cho), Aunt May, Green Goblin and the Scorpion.
Ghost Rider’s Bike – with Ghost Rider and his bike, teaming up with Spider-Man against Hobgoblin on his glider.
Doc Ock’s Tentacle Trap with Spiderman, Doc Ock (as a figure and as a giant mech, which may be in line with how the character was seen in ‘Dying Wish), Vulture, White Tiger, and Captain Stacey.
Doctor Strange’s Sanctum Santorum – it appears that this set has Dr Strange, Wong, and possibly Dormammu.
Scarecrow’s Harvest of Fear – this set has Scarecrow and Killer Moth teaming up against Batman (who is wearing some kind of gas mask). There’s also a farmer, and apparently Scarecrow is riding a combine harvester
Killer Croc’s Sewer Smash – Killer Croc returns as a big-fig here, along with a load of villains – Captain Boomerang, Katana (both tying in to Suicide Squad, I guess) and Red Hood!
These are just reports at the moment – as we’re still a few weeks away from the European Toy Fairs beginning in earnest, take this with a grain of salt until they get officially unveiled likely in February. Seems like a big year for superhero Lego, though, if we can trust the reporting!
