The LEGO Super Heroes theme has improved dramatically since its inception, and whereas once upon a time most collectors were only buy the sets for the minifigs, the builds are oftentimes just as desirable as the minifigures these days. But if there was one set that 99% of collectors were going to buy in 2017 solely for the figures–this would probably be it: the LEGO Marvel 2017 Hulk vs. Red Hulk 76078 set has now been fully revealed!Continue Reading →
I started out my coverage of the winter LEGO Marvel 2017 Sets with a photos preview of the LEGO Iron Man Detroit Steel Showdown with Coulson and Lola the Flying Car earlier today on my Marvel blog, but I’m going to move coverage back here to discuss the final two sets in the winter wave. One of the more bizarre Marvel sets ever brings us one of the most unique new Marvel characters–it’s the LEGO Captain America Jet Pursuit 76076 set with Ms. Marvel minifigure!Continue Reading →

I should have realized immediately why this set was delayed a bit, but it’s pretty clear now: the first-ever MCU Spider-Man minifigure is the headliner in the exclusive LEGO Marvel Tanker Truck Takedown 76067 Civil War set!Continue Reading →

I’m in a LEGO Marvel kind of mood today, which I why I talked about the Doc Ock Tentacle Trap here and the spectacular Spider-Man Web Warriors Ultimate Bridge Battle on my Marvel site this morning. That leaves one LEGO Marvel 2016 set to talk about, and it’s a (small) biggie!
