Marvel Announces LEGO® Variant Covers

Comics and LEGO, what more could you ask for?

If you're a frequent visitor to this place, you have a pretty good idea how we feel about LEGO. We've done quite a few features on the different LEGO sets that have been coming out. With the news of a LEGO Marvel video game on the way, it only makes sense we'd eventually see LEGO variant covers as well.

From the images Marvel sent over, it appears they may be homage covers.

HAWKEYE #15 variant

This September, two of the world's most iconic brands join forces as Marvel Entertainment & The LEGO Group, unite for the greatest variant covers you’ve ever seen – LEGO® Variants. That’s right, Iron Man, Hawkeye, Wolverine, Captain America, and so many more of your favorite Marvel heroes are translated into LEGO form! Not only will you get to see so many of Earth’s Mightiest as Minifigures, but over 20 of your favorite Marvel comics will feature these one- of-a-kind variant covers depicting some of the most classic of covers!

  • · All-New X-Men #17
  • · Avengers #21
  • · Avengers A.I. #4
  • · Captain America #12
  • · Daredevil #31
  • · Fantastic Four #13
  • · Guardians Of The Galaxy #7
  • · Hawkeye #15
  • · Indestructible Hulk #14
  • · Infinity #3
  • · Iron Man #17
  • · Marvel Universe: Avengers Assemble #1
  • · Mighty Avengers 1
  • · New Avengers #11
  • · Nova #8

  • · Uncanny Avengers #12
  • · Wolverine & The X-Men #36
  • · X-Men #5

"Working with the folks at The LEGO Group to do these homage covers is an absolute blast! As soon as we came up with the concept of doing the covers, I couldn’t wait to get an idea off the ground that really does justice to both the Marvel heroes and the LEGO brand,” explained David Gabriel, SVP of Sales, Print & Digital. “This program is the best blend of both worlds and we know it will really excite our fans and hope that Lego fans also find their way into comic shops to pick these up!”

The LEGO variant covers complement the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes construction toy collection, which brings the characters, vehicles and action of Marvel’s renowned universe to the world of LEGO build-and-play adventure. There are currently eleven iconic scenes from the Avengers, Iron Man and Spider -Man franchises available including construction sets tied to Marvel’s Iron Man 3 feature film. The covers also celebrate the new LEGO® Marvel™ Super Heroes videogame which will be available beginning Fall 2013 and is the first instalment in the highly successful LEGO videogame franchise to feature a breadth of famous characters from the Marvel Comics Universe.

To celebrate this Marvel Team-Up, Marvel has pored through the vaults and selected the best images for artists Leo Castellani, Christopher Jones and Adam DeKracker to bring you a set of covers that will be forever awesome in your collection! Be sure to head on over to your local comic shop immediately and tell your retailers which one you want because all of these limited LEGO Variant covers are going to go fast!

Marvel urges retailers to check their orders on these hotly anticipated variant covers as the fan interest in the months to come can only increase. No fan will want to miss the chance to see their favorite Marvel heroes in a whole new light when the LEGO Variants hit store shelves worldwide!

Yes. Whatever could they be hoping to promote?

This is gonna be soooooo COOL!

That Wolverine cover is hilarious! Too bad none of the comic stores I go to sell variants, usually I think they sell them online for more money.

First the Skottie Young baby variants, the 8bit variants, and now this? So much awesome, but so much money.

Five minutes ago I didn't know these existed, but now I have to have them. I'm getting awfully tired of you making me spend all my money, G-Man. That goes for k4tzman, too. In all honesty, jokes aside, thanks for posting!

It's unfortunate that there isn't a Deadpool one, or a Cable and X-Force one. Lego Cable would look totally badass.

EDIT: I always love homages to the great Steranko cover to Hulk Annual #1. It's kind of become an icon in my household.

I don't get how people don't feel totally ripped off by all these Lego variants of different franchises. Why would you want an action figure of your favorite superhero that is an extremely simplified, blocky version of them with just the basic details? Same with the games, what's the appeal? They're clearly just cheap to produce because they use no complex graphics at all.

Too adorable :D

AWESOME IDEA! Can't wait to see the rest.

Pretty sweet! I want the Hawkeye one; including the action figure please!

Edited by LifePool

Kinda surprised that so many people are still into Legos, but hey, that's why they made them.

Posted by SideburnGuru

Lego Deadpool will probaby be a variant cover. Just not for an actual Deadpool comic. Why? Because that'd make sense.

I am excited for these covers though. Can't wait to pick some up of them!

Posted by SavageDragon

I am not super into lego but that wolverine cover is awesome.

Posted by wmwadeii

I was thinking it would be nice if Marvel and LEGO decided to bag these issues to include a Marvel Mini-fig.
