The 45-piece set – which would once have been branded ‘Juniors’ – includes a 4×4 ride for Spider-Man and a mini-catapult for Sandman. Both minifigures feature new printing, which should make this a great cop for character collectors given its low price of £8.99 / $9.99 / €9.99.
As with most 4+ sets, it’s built around large, single-purpose moulds, offering a great gateway from DUPLO to System for younger builders. YouTuber Ashnflash has received an early copy of the set and published a review, praising the set for its minifigures – but lamenting the missed opportunity for something new.
“It’s a 4+ set – what more could you ask for?” he says. “You’re getting a villain that we haven’t gotten for a year and a bit now, and specifically in this outfit it’s been a very long time, so it’s great to be getting here, it really is. But I just wish that it could have been a new villain like Electro, or someone that we’ve never gotten.”
76168 Captain America Mech Armour will launch in January 2021, along with at least five other LEGO Marvel sets. You can check out all the details here. Another two Marvel sets have also been revealed, but they don’t yet have an official launch date.
