Lego has been a leader in the pop culture toy industry for the past ten years with sets to accompany major properties from Marvel, DC Comics and Star Wars, to name a few.
Yesterday a few new Lego sets were unveiled online and are already available for sale. The new sets are from the DC Comics and Marvel Comics universes and include popular brands like Batman, Spider-Man and the Suicide Squad.
