Those would be from the new Legends of Chima line.
Apparently Ninjago will be discontinued after "at least one more wave of sets"...

Seems like there will be more superhero sets.

If that insect guy is only available in some expensive-as-Apple set then people will die and heads will be eaten.

Am I the only person who want the Venom fig in order to make a slenderman minifig?

You can make a much more effective slenderman head with a blank peach head. If you don't have one, a pencil eraser and a little elbow grease can get the print off.

Anyway, loving the Bane torso.

Based on the show, and assuming we don't get figs not pictured here, my guess is that we'll see two sets: Spidey/J. Jonah Jameson/Beetle (based on an ep where Beetle is hired to assassinate JJ and Spidey stops him) and Spidey/Nova/Dr. Doom/Fury (based on an ep where Doom invades the Helicarrier).

On the other hand, there's no episode I know of where Doc Ock kidnaps Iron Fist, so I might be thinking about this too hard.

Also, I have a MUCH bigger geek boner for Lego Dr. Doom than I did for Lego Deadpool. Doom is my all-time favorite character in comics.

The Scarecrow, Bane, Beetle and Venom heads all look really useful, but I'm especially loving Scarecrow's head. A lot of people seem to be displeased with it, but I love the expression. With a little painting, it could be a great Jack Skellington head, too.

DC: Let's just make Batman stuff, because everything in the Batman universe is well known and awesome.

Marvel: Umm... let's make weird penis stuff, because those things are cool (not, well, besides Venom and Dr. Doom), add in Havoc (who most people have no idea who he is), Nick Fury (who's sort of cool), and some other random insect dude, and throw Aquaman in for good measure.

Marvel has a talent for finding either some of the lamest or most obscure characters to make toys of.

Well, there are literally OVER 5000 characters in the Marvel universe (yes, it is all the same plane of existance), so it's not that hard to pull off.

add in Havoc (who most people have no idea who he is),
They did not add in Havok. I'm pretty sure you're mistaking Nova for Havok.
and some other random insect dude, and throw Aquaman in for good measure.
You show Abner Jenkins some respect, he's been The Beetle for longer than you've been alive.

And for fuck's sake, Aquadink is a DC character, so I'm pretty sure he wasn't thrown into a Marvel set.
