In an apparent effort to give both Marvel and DC an even amount of bricky love today, Lego has released images of both a Lego-fied recreation of The Avengers movie poster
and the TT Games box art for the upcoming Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes game
. Marvel and DC Lego sets have been making their way to retail gradually over the past several months, in accordance with the May 4 release of The Avengers
film and the July 20 release of The Dark Knight Rises (Lego Batman 2
isn't a TDKR tie-in, per se, but Bane's on the box art for a reason I imagine).
See larger images of The Big Two's most popular characters in Lego form after the jump.
Lego's The Avengers
movie line is part of a larger wave of Marvel Super Heroes toys that was showcased prominently during this year's Toy Fair
. Many have commented on the size of Lego Iron Man's helmet, but if the toy sports the visor-flipping seen on this poster, fans may consider the scale compromise worth it. If nothing else, it's nice to see Lego versions of Black Widow, Hawkeye and Nick Fury, as they've been absent from product images
up until now. Should a Nick Fury brick figure make it to retail, it will be the second Lego figure to sport actor Samuel L. Jackson's likeness following his Mace Windu toy
from the various Star Wars sets.
The Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes
box art plays up the game's ensemble cast of Batman, Robin, Superman (and potentially other playable heroes including the Flash, Green Lantern and Wonder Woman) as well as the villainous team of Lex Luthor and the Joker as seen in the game's trailer
. The current box art for the game's Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii and PlayStation 3 seems to be standardized, so fans can likely expect the PC and Nintendo DS versions of the game to look the same.
