Next week, Captain Marvel finally makes it into Lego Marvel's Avengers. Not only that, but unlike many of the characters already included in the massive roster for TT Games' latest Marvel adventure, she'll be getting her own level pack as well. If you count mobile titles, this is not the first time Carol Danvers will be a playable character in a video game, but her addition to the roster of Lego Marvel's Avengers is the closest thing many of us will get to a true Captain Marvel video game... at least until she finally joins the Avengers and someone figures out how to make a great movie-licensed video game again.
The Captain Marvel level pack will also introduce the likes of Kang The Conqueror, Magnitron, Moonstone, Poundcakes, Tic, Warbird, and Wonder Man. This is quite possibly the only time characters like Poundcakes and Tic will ever be considered for playable characters in a video game, and again shows just how deep of a well TT is willing to dive into to bolster Lego Marvel's Avengers roster. Carol's skycycle and Helen Cobb's plane will be added too, vehicles all control like melty sticks of butter in the game. Why would I ever use one when I can just fly everywhere?
Remember those LEGO Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie sets we saw at Toy Fair 2014 but weren't allowed to photograph? Two of them have finally rolled online at Canadian retailer Indigo. Hit the jump to see the Big Rig Snow Getaway and Turtle Van Takedown sets, along with their official product descriptions which may contain spoiler-ish information about the movie's plot.
A while back we reported on a very cool 'Back to the Future' LEGO set concept, where fans submit their ideas for new LEGO sets in hopes of seeing those sets become reality. And the results are in -- the 'Back to the Future' LEGO set has been approved and is coming next year!
As a child I loved 'Lego's' there was nothing you could not build. I guess they just tapped into the inner builder in me, they became an obsession. I found a story I would like to share with you on why the Lego company is the coolest company ever.
