Yesterday LEGO revealed at their Facebook Page three of the new LEGO DC Super Hero Girls sets that will be available later this year. Please note that these sets are not based on the classic Super Hero comics or movies, but a new franchise launched last year by DC Comics and Mattel. Details on the new sets and characters below. 🙂
In DC Super Hero Girls well-known DC Super Heroes like Supergirl, Batgirl, Poison Ivy, Harley Quinn and Lena Luthor are dealing with the awkwardness of growing up and attending high school, with the added stress of having superpowers. The franchise includes a mini-movie series, books, action figures from Mattel, and now LEGO sets. You can find out more at the official DC Super Hero Girls website.
Three of the new LEGO DC Super Hero Girls sets will be available at the end of November, and three more are scheduled for January. The first three sets are the #41230 LEGO DC Super Hero Girls Batgirl’s Batjet, the #41231 LEGO DC Super Hero Girls Harley Quinn’s Cafe Rescue, and the #41232 LEGO Super Hero Girls Super Hero High School (see included pictures). The three sets coming out next year are the #41233 LEGO Super Hero Girls Lashina’s Action Rider, the #31234 LEGO Super Hero Girls Bumblebee’s Helicopter, and the #41235 LEGO Super Hero Girls Wonder Woman Dorm (no pictures for these yet).
The teenage Super Heroes come as LEGO mini-dolls, which make sense, as they are closer to what the characters look like in the franchise. I think they are incredibly cute. Even if you are not into mini-dolls, remember that the hairpieces and accessories are fully compatible with regular LEGO minifigures, and these hairpieces are definitely beautiful. (These Super Hero mini-dolls also remind me of the Mega Bloks Monster High figures, which are also very cute.)
The sets themselves are pretty interesting. The Batjet looks good, and that little cafe shop has some nice features. The Super Hero High School is the largest of the three sets, and I assume it will be the focal point of all the activities. Looking forward to see how the back section looks like. Also, check out those cute little monster looking things. I guess they are Kryptomites?
While there are still people who are against the LEGO mini-dolls that were first introduced with the LEGO Friends sets in 2012, they are clearly very popular with both children and adults. LEGO Friends was later joined by the LEGO Disney Princess and LEGO Elves sets, both in high demand. And now we will also have Super Hero mini-dolls! You can find the current selection under the LEGO Friends, LEGO Disney Princess, and LEGO Elves sections of the Online LEGO Shop.
