…finally!!! Official herofigs and sets are coming!!! Yes, “herofigs“…perhaps I’m coining a term? As you know, I’ve “gone fishin’” for a bit, so my usual daily browser pilgrimage to the AFOL news sites was a little later than usual. You can’t imagine my excitement when I saw this piece on From Bricks To Bothans (FBTB). I had me a Supergeek moment…and honestly, it still hasn’t worn off. Yes, TLG has finally set up a licensing deal that, in my mind, rivals the existing one with that George Lucas property by announcing a new Superheroes theme featuring Marvel and DC. Click the image above to access FBTB’s Flickr set of the theme’s minifigs and Bionicle / Hero Factory / Ben 10 -esque construction sets as seen at the San Diego Comic-Con which officially started today. (There was a preview yesterday.) Aside from the exciting news that we actually get a full theme featuring the heroes of my youth, the icing on the cake is that part of my little “fishin’” trip includes a day at Comic-Con on Saturday. BAMF!!! Rest assured, I’ll be snapping my own pics as well. If it still isn’t clear how much of a giant comics nerd I am, check out these Ka-GO interviews I did a little bit ago with Justin Fong and Mike Napolitan; they highlight the herofig-related work of these two other FOL’s who I imagine are about as giddy as I am right about now.
