Lego Super Heroes: Marvel

The first wave of Marvel sets in the Lego Super Heroes range are imminent, and thus, so are decent pictures. I don't have a clue what's going on in most of them, as they are almost all related to the forthcoming Avengers film, which has failed to peak my interest - So I'm hoping the next wave has more Spiderman and X-Men based sets; then I might have half an idea what they're meant to be. Until then, enjoy these:

6865 Captain America's Avenging Cycle

6866 Wolverine's Chopper Showdown

6867 Loki's Cosmic Cube Chase

6868 Hulk's Helicarrier Breakout

6869 Quinjet Aerial Battle
In other Super Heroes news, an exclusive Lex Luthor figure, with a jet-pack, will be available when pre-ordering the Lego Batman II: DC Super Heroes video game from select retailers.

30164 Lex Luthor

Lego Lord of the Rings

The first Lego Lord of the Rings sets are on the way, and the first officially released pictures of the sets are starting to show up. Lots of the lovely new horses, loads of new minifigure accessories, piles of the new brickwork detailed bricks, and even some nifty use of the Games microfigs. Have a looksie:
