I'd say it's due to the reboot. They're probably waiting on things to get settled, then they'll put out a TT set. Right now DC is going to go with the two biggest, and best known, properties -- Superman & Batman.

Aside from the fact that Batman and Superman are probably two of the most readily recognizable superheroes out there, there are also multiple avenues of exposure for both - comics, movies (The Dark Knight Rises, The Man of Steel) and in the case of Batman, an animated series (Batman: The Brave and the Bold) for more mainstream exposure. The Teen Titans animated series is over, if I'm not mistaken, and DC is about to do a major reset of all their titles, which might put Teen Titans out of the running for a while. I'd say we'll see a Justice League series before a Teen Titans series, seeing as how the TT is basically a team composed of JL sidekicks.

They came out with the Young Justice cartoon this year which I believe has been renewed for the fall.
It featured Robin, Superboy, Kid Flash, Aqualad, Miss Martian and Artemis. Robin would be the only recurring character from both teams on the animated show.

I've watched parts of an episode when my son was watching it. I like the feel for it, animation and story is much like the Justice League cartoons. I doubt this team would see a lego version anytime soon. The show has not been on long enough and Robin and superboy would be the only two recognizable characters to the average consumer.

I agree, If it does well though, I think that it has a good chance of being a lego theme. There is a lot of possible sets to make as well.

When I said I want to see LEGO Teen Titans sets, I wasn't talking about the cartoon, I was talking about the comic books.

We've seen the GL and Wonder Woman minifgures, but all the sets are focused on Supes and Bats. Does that mean GL and Wondy will be included in the Batcave?

Battlepack? Maybe. I almost think a collectable minifig series would be more likely.

Now that I think about it, I doubt the DC or Marvel themes will have any battlepacks. Those universes are comprised of unique and individual characters, which doesn't really leave much room for 'army building'. From a business standpoint, Lego is better off putting all these characters into different sets to encourage more sales.

So even though Green Lantern and Wonder Woman may not be in any of the sets listed above, Lego has plenty of material to work within order to produce countless waves for the years to come.

I've been wondering the same thing - where's the set with Green Lantern.

They showed Wonder Woman and GL so we know they're coming, but it doesn't look like they match up with any of the sets. I'm speculating that they expected the GL movie to be a hit and Wonder Woman to be in a TV show this fall. But I've also seen posts that there's a focus on the Batman: Brave and the Bold characters. So maybe that's the link. I'm hoping they're in the Batcave, and it's a cool superhero HQ!

Amen to that,

No Battlepacks is obvious, I believe each hero will have his own set but we might see the same hero in more sets over the time, like it is usual for licensed products (SW, etc...)

LEGO 6858 Batman vs. Catwoman (DC 1) seems a lot like the set 7779 The Batman Dragster: Catwoman Pursuit from 2006. Plus they both retailed for around $10. I wonder how different they'll be. :what?:

Hmm, so wonder woman will be in the superman versus lex luthor set eh? I always suspected Big Red and WW had something going on on the side. ;-) :shh: Don't tell Lois. I hear she's mighty jealous.
