Coming to stores later this winter in advance of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 in theaters, it’s the LEGO Ravager Attack 76079 set!

Earlier I discussed the biggest of the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 sets–the Milano vs. The Abilisk 76081–over on Marvel Toy News. But don’t worry–I saved the other new sets to discuss here!
