Happy Flash Friday everyone! It’s a pretty exciting weekend for everyone who likes to get their superhero fix through animation. DC Nation has been going for a little bit on Saturday mornings and now Marvel is going to have an animation block on Sundays with Ultimate Spiderman and the Avengers cartoon. On top of that we are getting more details about Lego Batman 2 DC Super Heroes. So where is my Flash Lego?
After all the Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Harry Potter, Pirates of the Caribbean; you pretty much know what to expect with a Lego game. You either like it or you don’t. I enjoy them a lot, but I don’t buy a lot of them. Usually I can get what I want out of them with a rental. Batman 2 may end up being a buy though. Obviously Batman and Robin are playable. The different Batman suits will be returning. Superman is confirmed and most press releases are saying Green Lantern and Wonder Woman will be in it. Again, where is my Flash Lego?
I’m not just asking about in the video game either. The first wave of DC Legos looked great, but only one of the mini-fig scaled sets wasn’t Batman related. The Lex Luthor robot suit is fantastic. Wonder Woman and Superman looked great. Wouldn’t a Flash set with a Captain Cold look great too? Lego already has a hooded parka for the mini-figs.
I realize Batman is the easiest to do building sets out of, he has the most toys. Cars, boats, motorcycles, etc… It is hard to figure out how to incorporate building blocks with the speedster character without doing what Minimates did and build a strange red spaceship. They could package him with some villains and a bank. Or a science lab. Or a Flash Museum. Okay I realize the last one will probably never happen, but I can dream can’t I?
