LEGO DC Super Heroes Minifigs Review

As you may know already, at the beginning of the month, LEGO released a new series of collectible minifigures, this time focusing on DC Super Heroes. Each mystery bag contains one of sixteen different superhero or villain characters from the DC Universe. Some of the characters are well known while others are more obscure, so we will take a look at the characters with the help of Mike Rytter from Beyond the Brick, who did quite a bit of research on them.

But let’s start with the list of characters! Included in the LEGO DC Super Heroes Collectible Minifigures are Aquaman, Batman, Bat-Mite, Bumblebee, Cyborg, The Flash, Green Lantern, Metamorpho, Mister Miracle, Sinestro, Wonder Woman, Superman, The Joker, Huntress, The Cheetah, and Stargirl.

Each of the minifigs comes with various accessories, as well as a brand new trans-clear element, called the “posing brick”. This piece allows attaching the minifigs in various angles and dynamic poses, and is one of the coolest parts in the series. According to Mike, some of the packs come with two of these pieces, while others only include one.

All of the minifigs are highly detailed with both printing and dual-moulding on pretty much all body parts. LEGO designers definitely did their research as they characters are very accurate to their original comic version. Some interesting pieces are Aquaman’s claw hand, Bumblebee’s new hairpiece, a new helmet for The Flash, Batman’s long-eared cowl, and Bat-Mite’s floppy eared cowl. Watch the video below to learn more about each of the characters and how they fit in the DC Universe.

Having so many unusual and rare characters makes this series greatly desirable to collectors. Unfortunately, the price was increased to $4.99 per packet, which will make people hesitant from purchasing random minifigs, and will likely turn to the secondary market to buy the exact characters they want. The limit at the Online LEGO Shop is 59 minifigs per household, which will probably give you one of each character, but there are no guarantees. Hopefully, a full box version will be available soon. You can find them listed at the LEGO minifigures section of the Online LEGO Shop.

    That ” posing peace” can throw you off when you feel the mystery bags. ” I sense a disturbance in the force”. However, I did find all the female superheroes. Which I was looking for in the first place. I needed more female superheroes in my DC collection. So, here is a curious question. Is there a reason why Lego won’t do Marvel Mystery bags or is that going to happen in the near future? I can think of a lot of marvel superheroes that hasn’t been made yet or hasn’t been made in a while. I would love to get a daredevil minifigure.

    Although I haven’t heard a direct confirmation, I heard that the main reason was that Hasbro owned the rights to Marvel and Star Wars action figures, and figure-based Lego packs without builds attached were considered action figures and a violation of Hasbro’s rights.

    Another unsubstantiated rumor I heard is that a lot of the Comic-Con limited releases has come from previous work on planned CMF series.

    I’d happily see a Marvel CMF series, myself, since I’m more of a Marvel than DC guy.

    Amazing minifigs! And I really enjoyed the video. I wasn’t familiar with several of the characters. The reviewer has a heavy accent, so sometimes it was hard to understand what he said, but overall it was great.

    They are great, no doubt, but very expensive. Five dollars for a minifig is customizer territory.

    Hmmm, the accent sounds like something Slavic or Eastern, I think.

    Anyway, I’m usually too fidgety and easily bored to follow video reviews. I’m a fast reader, so I prefer written reviews…

      Haha! I know what you mean. I usually do something while I watch videos because I also get distracted (unless it’s something super riveting). I’m also usually more focused when reading. But since I’m not a DC person, and this was a good video-review, I figured I include it. 🙂

    Always a marvel fan. In fact my first hobby was collecting comic books ( marvel) . In fact I’m slowly getting back into the collecting of comic books again. My brother and I had a deal where he would collect the more violent comics ( The Punisher ,Wolverine Etc). I would collect more ” the hero” type comic ( Spider-Man, Captain America, Thor etc.) This was in the early 90’s and I still have them.

    Oh yeah. I have so many comics in my shelves now that I’m starting to getting tired of floppies, though. US floppies tend to be too expensive for what you get, and they’re a bit of a hassle to sort and store in a proper manner. I prefer the softcover trades.
