Lego and Marvel : Young love
The success of the Marvel franchises could not go unnoticed much longer.
Recently, the brick brand got back on track by adapting popular franchises like Star Wars, Batman and now Marvel.
Let’s see what they made for us kids, young and not so young.
- The video game
There already are several lego video games, Lego marvel is not exception and its game is scheduled to launch on the 15th of november in Europe.
Even if there are a little classic, the Lego games are fun to play and recently included open world maps (like every games and their dogs).
Zero puntuation did a fun critic of Lego Indiana Jones if you want a overview of Lego games in general.
- The boxes
Ten boxes have been created inspired mostly by the Avengers and Iron man 3 movies.
There are some exceptions, like one with Wolverine, Deadpool, Magneto and a chopper (The exception of doom !).
The characters figures are nice but the environments could be better (apparently the DC boxes were better inspired)
It’s a shame the characters are not sold individually (officially ).
- The fun
Once you have acquired the plastic wonders, the fun can begin for players of all ages.
I have yet to complete the device that will allow me to read children’s thoughts, so I cannot say if your kids (or kids relatives) will like them but I know some grown-up do.
Here comes one of my favorites twitter account : Lego Loki.
(the illustrations come from there)
I already loved Loki as a character but the concept (just capturing the Loki lego in all kind of situation) is really well played.
The comments with the pictures are in character and really hilarious each time.
I have my own Lego Loki, I just need to find the perfect moment to immortalize him.
BONUS : Marvel released a webserie on its youtube account based on the Lego figures : LEGO Marvel Super Heroes: Maximum Overload
