We quickly take stock of the novelties expected for the second half of 2021 in the LEGO Marvel range with a large assortment of products that will compensate for the rather sketchy first wave launched last January.
Below is the list of expected sets for which we have at least a LEGO reference and possibly a title. For some of them, we also have the number of pieces, the identity of the characters provided and a public price that may need to be increased by a few euros in France.
On the menu, two boxes and a polybag based on the film Shang-Chi: The Legend of the Ten Rings which is in principle expected in theaters this summer, four sets based on the film Eternals scheduled for release in November 2021, a slew of Avengers / Black Panther / Iron Man / Guardians of the Galaxy sets including a buildable and displayable Infinity Gauntlet and a few Spider-Man boxes including a Venom head similar to that of the set 76199 Rampage already online on the official store.
It should also be noted that the Marvel range will enter this year in the very closed circle of licenses which are entitled to a LEGO Advent calendar.

Today we make the tour of the LEGO Star Wars set very quickly 75281 Anakin's Jedi Interceptor (248 pieces), a remake of the set 75038 Jedi Interceptor marketed in 2014 which will at least have the merit of allowing all those who arrived in the hobby after the withdrawal of the relevant reference from the LEGO catalog to afford this small vessel at a relatively reasonable price.
We will remember the few changes made to this new interpretation of the ship, especially at the level of the two guns placed inside the wings which benefit from a more accomplished finish. The cockpit is also more comfortable with a headrest, but it is always necessary to ignore a possible presentation support that would have allowed the vessel to be exposed with its fins deployed.
Note also that the solution used to tilt the wings on this new version is different from that proposed in 2014: the plates are replaced by two hinges independent with integrated pins. The effect produced is the same and the solidity of the model does not suffer from this modification. Of them Spring-Shooters are integrated under the cabin, they are discreet and can possibly be removed if their presence disturbs you.
The canopy is a new reference to the slightly different pad printing of the element seen in 2014 in the set 75038 Jedi Interceptor then in 2016 in the set 75135 Obi-Wan's Jedi Interceptor. Two small details disappear at the front, but for the rest the part is identical, injection point placed in the middle included. The dish placed on the front of the cockpit is a part available since 2005 from LEGO.
The LEGO designers do not hide it, they try to offer reissues in which certain details are modified or improved so as not to be satisfied with releasing the same product identically. This is therefore the case here with some changes which, although they will probably not be enough to make this new box a radically different version from the previous one, will convince the most demanding collectors that it is nevertheless a variant. essential.
The ship is assembled in a few minutes, we glue the eight stickers and we move on. It should be noted that the meanness is here pushed to its paroxysm with a sticker representing the logo of the Galactic Republic to stick on the Tile 1x1 round while this same coin was pad printed on the 2014 version. As a bonus, the cutout of this sticker is not even correctly centered and the result is a bit disappointing.
The two minifigs provided in this box are not new or exclusive, they reuse parts already seen in other sets: Anakin's torso and legs are the elements delivered in 2020 in the set 75269 Duel on Mustafar, the legs and the head even dating from 2018 and then delivered in the set 75214 Anakin's Jedi Starfighter.
The R2-D2 figurine here uses the dome updated in 2020 which is also present in the sets 75270 Obi_Wan's Hut et 75273 Poe Dameron's X-wing Fighter. On the version of the set that I received, the pad printing of the dome is also slightly askew. The droid body is the one marketed since 2014.
In short, there is nothing to philosophize about this product for a long time: If you have the previous version, this new box should logically not seem essential to you and you have saved 30 €. Otherwise, you can already find this set for less than 23 euros at Amazon in Germany and it is still cheaper than the fifty euros requested by dealers on the secondary market for the 2014 version.
Note: The set presented here, supplied by LEGO, is as usual in play. Deadline fixed at 2th October next at 23pm.
Update : The winner was drawn and was notified by email, his nickname is indicated below. Without a response from him to my request for contact details within 5 days, a new winner will be drawn.

To be able to discuss it here in the comments, here is a quick recap of the rumors that are circulating more or less actively at the moment on the forums and on social networks. As usual, this unverified and unconfirmed information by LEGO should be taken with a grain of salt pending official announcements or more consistent leaks.
The next big set "18+" would be, according to several users ofEurobricks, the reference 10276 Roman Colosseum which could be a reproduction of more than 9000 pieces of the monument in question. As usual, fans see in retrospect the packaging, content and various teasers of the set. 10271 Fiat 500 this year marketed clues to this future reproduction of the Colosseum which would become the largest set ever marketed by LEGO.
Still in the "18+" range and still according to a user ofEurobricks, the Ecto-1 could make an appearance again at LEGO in the set bearing the reference 10274 Ghostbusters Ecto-1. The reproduction of the vehicle would be more consistent than that of the LEGO Ideas set 21108 Ghostbusters marketed in 2014 with a public price around $ 200 and a model in the spirit of vehicles seen for example in sets 10262 James Bond Aston Martin DB5 et 10265 Ford Mustang.
The festive set that would eventually come this year to expand the Winter village in LEGO sauce would be, still according to a user ofEurobricks, the reference 10275 Elf Clubhouse. It would therefore, as its title seems to indicate, take over from the reference 10245 Santa's Workshop marketed in 2014.
Last but not least, brickfanatics claims to have information about the 2021 availability of a series of collectible pouch minifigs based on the license Looney Tunes owned by Warner Bros. We do not yet know which characters would eventually be available in minifig format but if the rumor is confirmed one day, we can probably count on Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Titi, Grosminet (Sylvestre), Taz, Elmer Fudd, Bip Bip and the Coyote, Speedy Gonzales and a few others.
Keep in mind that these various pieces of information are only at the stage of the rumor spread by a few people who are a priori well informed and that nothing has yet come to confirm or deny them. We will have to wait for official announcements or more solid leaks to get a first idea of the products concerned.
The trailer for the film Black Widow is now online and it looks pretty cool judging by these first images. The film is due in theaters on April 29, 2020.
As for the LEGO sets planned to accompany the release of the film, the latest rumors to date evoke two possible references, 76151 and 76162, without knowing exactly what these two boxes will contain. I don't expect big sets, as usual they will probably be small boxes featuring one or two vehicles and a few characters.
Hope that LEGO will allow us to get the minifigs of Alexei Shostakov aka Red Guardian (David Harbor) and Tony Masters aka Taskmaster. I also gladly take minifig versions of Florence Pugh and Rachel Weisz in addition to that of Scarlett Johansson in her white outfit ...
We have already known for several months that LEGO is preparing for January 2020 a series of collectible minifigs in sachets made up of 16 characters from the DC Comics universe.
Over the days, different minifigs that could come from this series of characters grouped under the reference 71026 appear on social networks and we therefore begin to have a little more precise idea of the content of the bags in question.
By relying on the different visuals already available, it should therefore be possible to obtain Sinestro (Classic Version), Stargirl, Metamorpho, Simon Baz (Green Lantern Corps), Huntress, Cheetah (1966), Cyborg (Teen Titans), Bumblebee ( Teen Titans), Wonder Woman (1966), Batman (Classic Version), Aquaman, Mr Miracle and a few others.
Minifig collectors who don't care about the bricks provided in the classic sets will no doubt be delighted to be able to add some secondary characters and some variations of characters already in the LEGO catalog to their collection.
As usual, no official confirmation for the moment, these different information should therefore be taken with a grain of salt even if the different visuals available do not leave much room for doubt.
Update : the four missing characters would be Flash (Jay Garrick), Bat-Mite, Superman (Rebirth), and the Joker.
