LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Black Panther Pursuit

From the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Captain America Civil War line there was one set that had Black Panther. The one was the chase with Captain America and The Winter Soldier and Black Panther. It was a pretty sweet part of the movie and there seems to be another scene like this in the Black Panther Movie. In fact there is a big deal spot with a Lexus and it being remotely driven by Shuri, Black Panther’s sister. I really wish that LEGO made that into a set. I think it would have been insane.

There are two sets from the Black Panther movie which I will build at a later date and those include some of the major characters plus a rhino that has tech on it. I am looking forward to seeing that in the movie, that is crazy. The ship in this particular set is amazing and I loved building it. The techniques used were excellent and lots of fun. I’ve begun to appreciate this so much more as of late. You can blame Built from Bricks on that one.

The Blind Bag Trap

I have a love/hate relationship with blind bags. They are exciting to open to see if you have found a chase character or a duplicate. The more blind bags you have the more chances you have of getting all the figures that you want, but there is also a higher chance of getting duplicates. I picked up a bunch of Funko Mystery Minis (Blind Bags) of Captain America Civil war characters on clearance at a couple of GameStop stores. Last night I found the rest of them at the last of the GameStops that are near me. I have all the figures except for three of them. I figured that I’d find at least one of them with this latest batch, but no. Not one new one and I even found two of the same ones. Ant-Man. I love the character but not 4 of them. So, that is the trap of Blind Bags. It is like toy gambling. It can be exciting but also disappointing.

So, now I have to figure out how to find those last three figures without taking more chances on blind bags.
