and to get it, they've signed deals with both Marvel & DC.

Harley Quinn & Deadpool minifigs - that's too cool.

On the DC figures do you think they will have the NEW uniforms/costumes from the relaunch books or will it most likely be the old uniforms of what we are all used to?

I guess these are on display at SDCC right now.

Judging by Star Wars Legos; I'd guess they'll start with the classic look and keep going until they've released multiple versions of Ambush Bug.

But out of 6 figs, I see an old school Batman and a movie version Catwoman.

I'm laughing at how big the Hulk is.  Smile

My son is the same. I'm so glad they have relaunched the Batcave. DC Universe. I couldn't afford the several hundred pounds people want for the original and my son desperateley wanted it. (ok me too)http://www.comicspriceguide.com/boards/Skins/Classic/Images/EmotIcons/Whistling.gif So we have got it for him (me) for Christmas. Though he (me) will have to wait until mid January for it to be released here. Is it already released in America or do you have to wait also?

Well the only thing keeping me from jumping into collecting Legos heavily is the high cost.  If they were somewhat cheaper I would buy them with abandon.

Their retail price has been going up the last couple years.

Some of the out of print Star Wars sets are going for money.  Guess there weren't many people buying extras.

It is ashame because my kid loves it. Do Lego get paid a shed load of money from DC and others that put their name to it also? Or would it be the other way around? Who is advertising who?

I think industry standard is an upfront fee plus a percentage.

I want an X-Men / Teen Titans Lego videogame.  Smile

New teaser photo.  They don't exist yet, release date still unknown.

Lego could make a lot of LOTR playsets before running out of places.

Wonder if there will also be a lego video game  Smile

It is up to us if we will buy it but they should consider the avid fans too.
