|Not the droid I'm looking for?|
It will depend greatly on what sets get any discounts for the "May the Fourth" promotion, but I might end up sitting out on the TC-14 in favor of a line I'm enjoying much more so far...Super Heroes.
As someone who grew up reading comic books, I have been fairly impressed with the sets in the Super Heroes line. I think the DC sets have been the better of the bunch so far. I've picked up most of the smaller sets from the Batman line, and Fun House and Bat Cave are likely to be picked up in my future. My personal favorite of the bunch has to be the Lex Luthor power armor set, but that's largely because Superman is in there.
The only Marvel set I have really liked so far is the Chopper Showdown, although that's largely tied to the minifigs as well. Magneto, Wolverine, and Deadpool are all excellent choices and a great value to pick up in a $20 set.
Most of the Avengers sets just are not doing it for me though. I want to get a Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, and the big Hulk, but the rest of the figs are not anything I'm crazy about. The generic drones are boring, Loki is a ho-hum villan, and Black Widow and Hawkeye are back benchers. I really hope future sets in the line produce a much wider array of characters and offer us vehicles and terrain that are more iconic to the Marvel Universe. I also want to see more classic villans show up, rather than just the generic henchmen we have so far.
So, which of these two are you more excited about in May? Do you think TC-14 is really of interest only to the "gotta have 'em all" Star Wars minifig collectors?
