Toy Fair: LEGO Ghost Rider Team-Up Summer 2016 Set!

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! One of the most-requested Marvel characters cruises into stores this summer–it’s the LEGO Spider-Man Ghost Rider Team-Up 76058!

Despite the fact that he lends himself better to being in a vehicle set that almost any other Marvel character and has had two not-quite-hit movies, I wasn’t sure that there would ever be a LEGO Ghost Rider toy. After all, it’s possible that the powers at be over at TLG might view “The Spirit of Vengeance” as, well… not kid-friendly.

But clearly that is not the case and TLG was just waiting for the right moment for this grand debut, as this summer, the Ghost Rider LEGO finally rides into stores!

LEGO Ghost Rider Motorcycle and Minifigure 2016I’d seen one or two photos of this set from the Nuremberg Toy Fair, but those really didn’t do justice to how awesome the Ghost Rider Minifigure and his motorcycle are.

The little red and blue newspaper dispensers are also simple elements that really add to the environment and make it feel authentic.

76058 LEGO Marvel Ghost Rider Teamup Street SignThere’s a brick-built New York City “Second Ave” street sign included with a trash can next to it that Ghost Rider can latch onto with his chain for making sharp turns on his motorcycle–brilliant, fun idea by TLG!

LEGO Spider-Man Minifigure Shooting Web Effects Piece AccessoryThe obligatory generic comic book-based Spider-Man figure is also included, although even he scores some points because he comes with the cool new web-shooting effects piece accessory.

LEGO Hobgoblin Minifigure on Goblin GliderAnd oh yeah–the LEGO Hobgoglin Minifigure is also flying into town atop his purple brick-built Goblin Glider!

LEGO Marvel Summer 2016 Sets Price Release Date Ghost Rider Team UpThe 76058 LEGO Spider-Man Ghost Rider Team-Up set is scheduled to officially arrive in stores in August 2016 (although it’ll likely pop up in some places weeks before that).

Even though this 76058 Ghost Rider Team-Up set contains two highly-demanded new characters and their rides, the set is also thankfully the cheapest in the LEGO Marvel Summer 2016 sets wave. And as 217 pieces for $19.99 falls under 10 cents per piece, LEGO 76958 earns a thumbs-up from me in the value department.

LEGO Marvel Summer 2016 Ghost Rider Team-Up Set Toy Fair 2016That’s it for Summer Marvel Super Heroes, but I’ll continuing updating with hi-res photos previews of every Summer 2016 LEGO set throughout the next few weeks. Be sure to check back on this site and the Brick Toy News Twitter and Facebook Pages so you don’t miss anything!

What do you think of the LEGO Marvel Ghost Rider Team-Up set, brick fans? Will this low-priced set containing two of the slickest-looking Marvel characters around (and their rides) be joining your collection this summer?

  1. How can I say no to this? I’ve never been much of a Ghost Rider fan but I’ve always loved the Hobgoblin! At this price it’s a no brainier.

  2. The Captain America Civil War sets are hitting stores just bought super hero airport battle at toys r us. Also question, what about the doctor strange set that was at the German toy expo? Did they not have that at toy fair? Are there any pictures anywhere?

    • LEGO Doctor Strange was not brought to the NY Toy Fair at all, and no photos of the set have been allowed yet at any event anywhere in the world, unfortunately.

  3. This set is a MUST HAVE if you are a BIG Marvel collector this set has Ghost Rider so I definitely recommend this set!

  4. There’s a pic of the doctor strange set on movie pilot. The sets called Sanctum Sanctorum. It spoils the villian like it spoiled the giant man transformation
