LEGO Marvel’s Avengers Won’t Assemble Until January 2016 (Will a Silver Centurion Iron Man Pre-Order Minifig Cheer You Up?)


So, I have bad news and good news.

Bad news first: LEGO Marvel’s Avengers, originally planned for a late 2015 release, has been delayed to an official launch date of January 26, 2016. That’s too bad, but in the end it’ll probably be for the best with LEGO Dimensions poised to dominate the LEGO video game market this fall through the holiday season.

The good news comes in the form of a sweet pre-order perk Warner Bros. is now offering exclusively through GameStop. Reserve a copy of LEGO Marvel’s Avengers on your preferred platform–Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo Wii U, PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Xbox 360, or Xbox One–and you will receive a collectible Silver Centurion Iron Man LEGO minifigure (pictured below) modeled after one of the playable suits from the game.


That’ll definitely win over pre-order customers more so than some bullshit, no-substance DLC.

Now for some bonus good news. In new screenshots from Gamescom, Bruce Banner, Hulk, Ms. Marvel (Kamala Khan), Speed, Thor (Jane Foster), and the Unbeatable Squirrel Girl have been revealed as playable characters. Check those out below.
