Be still my geeky heart, LEGO debuted a gigantic Daily Bugle set yesterday! This thing is a beast, with like a dozen mini-figures, multiple settings and just so much going on that the picture I’m posting does not do it justice!
Go to the official LEGO site and zoom in on some of these pictures, people. This is a thing of beauty!
Of course, this massive LEGO set is also going to set a person back $300. Will I pay that much for this giant LEGO dreamscape? Maybe…I haven’t decided yet. It comes out on June 1, so I have time to mull it over. The biggest problem is that I don’t have anywhere to display it. I’ve already got LEGO models on the floor in my little apartment because I don’t have table or shelf space anymore.
But this is still beautiful! There’s a bunch of heroes, including Spider-Ham, Daredevil and Miles Morales, and a ton of villains, including most of the original Sinister Six, like Sandman, Doctor Octopus and the likes of both Venom and Carnage. They even through in some anti-heroes like Punisher, Blade and Black Cat! How neat! Plus civilians like J. Jonah Jameson and Robbie Robertson. There’s a Robbie Robertson LEGO!
A LEGO Marvel set this size opens up a lot of potential going forward. Marvel hasn’t done too great with LEGO in recently years…largely because Marvel doesn’t have a lot of vehicles, and they were staying away from the likes of the X-Men and Fantastic Four for a while for stupid reasons. But perhaps we’ll get a Baxter Building one of these days? I’m holding out for an X-Mansion for damn sure. There’s so much potential for good X-Men LEGO!
Here’s hoping my wallet can survive the experience!
