First I doubt Christians believe Mary is NOT in heaven. After that ML's positions on Mary have been answered like this on another thread:

A personal opinion of brother Martin that isn't substantiated by Scripture so it isn't a part of the Lutheran Confessions. But I personally don't hold it against him since he was a Catholic, just an ingrained habit.

Regarding Real Presence: Confessional Lutherans believe in the Real Presence, not transubstantiation.

Well, that leaves one in somewhat of a pickle doesn’t it? Luther, in his own words and writings, said some pretty catholic things about Mary. As did his heretical brethren. After they left the church.

And now you are saying that it was just one of his/their ‘personal opinions?’ Is that right?

Then Luther was either wrong or he was right. If he was wrong, what else was he/they wrong about? If he was right, where does that leave you?

Regarding Real Presence: they say if you search for the truth with your whole heart mind and soul, that you will find it.

But the Bible Answer Man at CRI and his followers don’t give much attention to John chapter 6.
