SDCC 2018: New sets debut at LEGO, including more Solo, Marvel, and DC

LEGO had a nice showing at Comic Con, with some surprising new sets. Not just movie stuff, there were also some impressive comic kits.

Star Wars

Let’s start off with Star Wars though, since it was the largest presence in the booth. Not only were there new sets shown off, but the ones that are available right now were overflowing at the shop portion of the LEGO experience.

Extra cool was the train from Solo (which I figured we weren’t going to see more from), and the Episode 1 Podracer. Of course, the re-releases of the iconic TIE Fighter and X-Wing, and Jawa Sandcrawler were also pretty neat.

The Sandcrawler felt a lot smaller than the original set to me. Though I’m not sure if that’s just my faulty memory.

Comics

The Marvel stuff on display was great, but all stuff that we’ve already seen (outside of the above Ant-Man kit). I’ve actually been relatively unimpressed with LEGO’s Marvel movie offerings as of late. Actually, add their comic book-centric stuff too. the DC shelves on the other hand, were excellent.

LEGO had Aquaman out there, front and center, but that was far from it. There were also a pair of Batman sets (of course), one of which is remote controlled! An app-controlled LEGO Batmobile? Yes, I will take one of those.

The best set of the whole show was also a Bat-themed one, though he’s not the reason it’s so great. Yes, it includes Batwoman, but she’s not the reason either – it’s because this set includes Brother Eye and an OMAC.

 

Seriously, how awesome is that? This is absolutely being added to my collection.
