The newest LEGO Group SDCC Exclusive has been revealed and it’s something unique that collectors will undoubtedly be clamoring for.

The LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes Action Comics #1 Superman set will retail for $39.99, but make sure you read up on the changes they’ve made to their retail exclusives policy for the con. You have to win a drawing in order to purchase their SDCC sets this year. That might make it more difficult for people to buy up sets just to sell them on eBay.

Check out more pics and the updated policy after the break.

dc meets thomas

I’m doubly amused about this because Thomas the Tank Engine is featured in an add for Marvel’s Ant-Man at the moment, but this SDCC Exclusive Thomas & Friends Super Friends Minis DC mashup set is wild.

I dunno, what do you think?

man of steel color

The color in Man of Steel was altered to give it a grittier, darker, vibe that was in line with the successful Dark Knight trilogy. VideoLab restored the natural colors and the result is like a whole different movie.

See the comparison after the break. We think it looks better “in color”, but which version do you prefer?

Ah! The new Batmobile! It has guns! And tires! And it’s sleek like a dolphin riding a motorcycle or… a Lamborghini wearing a cape! Okay, I’m not making any sense.

batman-vs-superman

YouTuber Bobby Burns recreated the trailer for Batman V. Superman using old footage from the days of Adam West and Christopher Reeve. The audio from the actual trailer is spliced into classic scenes from the old Superman movies and it fits the dark tone really well. Then in comes goofy Batman and Robin prancing around and I just lost it.

Watch the funny and clever parody after the break.

superhero inspirational poster 1

Superheroes keep rather busy with the day to day schedule of fighting criminals and stopping nefarious plans. It’s probably hard to stay motivated. Artist Adam Thompson reminds us and them of why being a hero is the best path with his “Heroic Words of Wisdom” series. Each poster features the silhouette of a DC Comics superhero and an inspirational quote from him or her.

Thompson explains on Behance:

My work, centered around comic book characters, comes with the challenge of reaching to an audience beyond those who are already fans of those characters. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy very much to see existing fans of these characters who enjoy my work. However, up until this project, I’ve been indulgent of being a fan, and neglectful of the challenge of reaching that larger audience.

Superheroes already have a prominent place in pop culture. Their images can be seen anywhere. As a fan I enjoy seeing the strength of these characters in the spotlight, but because I am looking to reach a new audience, I needed to find a new light. I had to consider that comic books are a series of images accompanied by dialogue, and since it’s the images that are already so prominent, I decided to focus on the dialogue.

These are the kind of motivational posters I’d put on my wall.

Hit the break to see the rest of the posters.
