Upcoming set hint from contest rules

One other piece of news I missed. Classic-Castle forum member Azaghal pointed out that one of the prizes mentioned in the contest at is the "LEGO Super Heroes: DC Universe Batcave set". So we know at least one of the sets. Let the speculation begin on what other sets will be released.

BTW, the contest rules note that "entries will be judged every month through December 2011" and prizes including "the complete 2012 LEGO Super Heroes: DC Universe collection" will be "awarded each month", leading up to the grand prize (which includes a trip to Legoland and Warner Brothers) in December 2011. The press release said that the initial sets will "launch in January 2012", and the Variety article says they "will launch a new set of playthings around next summer's "The Dark Knight Rises" through the Lego Batman collection" (next summer). But I interpret the contest rules as saying that at least a few people will have sets in their hands within the next couple of months (and surely there will be photos posted online). Or perhaps the contest winners will be given IOU's from LEGO promising that they'll get a big package of LEGO on January 1? Time will tell, but if anyone who reads this blog does win one of the contests, please please please send me any information and photos.

BTW, they are already starting to post fan submissions at, including my up, up and away vignette.
