Remember back in 1938 when Superman flew onto the scene in a big way on the cover of Action Comics #1? Well LEGO does, and we’ve got the exclusive first look at their upcoming San Diego Comic-Con set that pays homage to it. In LEGO’S DC Comics Super Heroes set, available only at Comic-Con 2015, LEGO recreates Joe Shuster’s iconic artwork for Superman’s introductory comicbook cover in which he lifts a green sedan over his head as easily as you or I might victoriously hoist a Comic-Con swag bag. Fans who can’t attend Comic-Con can follow @LEGO_Group for chances to win the set throughout the course of the event.
Check out our exclusive look at LEGO’s DC Comics Super Heroes piece featuring Superman:
