Summer 2020 Superheroes concluding thoughts…
These summer 2020 superheroes pics reveal a lot of the same in my opinion. The superheroes theme is just one vehicle after another. Additionally, those vehicles are starting to be very similar from wave to wave. However, the theme is great for Minifigures if you are a comic book lover. The most interesting new addition here for me is the new variant of Batman’s cape. To achieve that fanned-out effect in photos I used to need two capes on one Minifigure. I am also thrilled to see that Robin has the shorter, moveable legs previously seen in the Harry Potter theme. I hate the stumpy child legs that don’t bend.
The most interesting set here for me is actually the 4+ Wrath of Loki set. I don’t buy many Marvel sets. However, I do like to have the staple characters as Minifigures. Wrath of Loki comes with three that I don’t have yet. It is such a shame that cost-per-brick is so bad for that kit. What are your thoughts on the new superheroes sets?
