The new collectable LEGO minifigures (CMF) seems to be a tribute to classic DC heroes and villains from the golden and silver age of comics.
The first pictures of the new series of CMFs was released yesterday. It is not the first time we get DC heroes in CMF form – there has previously been two series of Batman related CMFs. However, to my knowledge, this is the first time we are seeing CMFs that depict classic, golden- and silver-age DC characters.
While the clues may be subtle, there are definitely something interesting going on with these figures. The blue/grey Batman fig is holding a copy of Detective Comics #27 which is the first time appearance of Batman. Wonderwoman has her classic skirt rather than the newer bathing suit attire. And, the Flash is donning his classic golden winged helmet and blue pants.
This AFOL is a long-standing fan of DC superheroes and Batman in particular. While I missed out on the classic Batcave in LEGO I hope that this CMF series is a clue that we’ll get more golden- and silver-age sets!
