LEGO and DC Comics

Start saving your pennies now, news as of today is that LEGO has locked in a stranglehold of a licensing deal for DC Comics. Not just a few Batman sets that most of us didn't buy when we should have, but the full ride; Superman, Wonder Woman, the Joker, Bane, Harley Quinn, Lex Luthor to name just a few. There's thirteen characters slated in the initial January lineup.

Sure, LEGO X-Men would be awesome but something tells me we're going to get more mileage for our brick, err buck, out of a mini-fig lineup from DC.

This is pretty big news and is spreading around the brick blogs around the net. It originally broke online at Variety, for full details check out their writeup.

EDIT: Thanks to aptly named minifigure below (no really, thanks!) there's even better news. Looks like we can have our cake and eat it too since Lego's also getting a Marvel Comics license as well. It's toned down comparatively but Lego X-Men, Avengers, etc. are now a reality. Seriously, start saving your money today.

Here's a couple of solid links that give even more information:
