Just announced by the LEGO Group, 76178 Daily Bugle is the biggest Marvel set the company has ever launched – both in dimensions and piece count, given its 82cm height and 3,772 bricks. That means it’s a model with a lot to take in, both inside and out.
Yep, this skyscraper has a full interior. And best of all, it’s completely modular – more so even than the actual Modular Buildings Collection, which features removable floors but not walls. 76178 Daily Bugle goes one step further by allowing unprecedented access to the offices hiding behind its sleek, glass-fronted exterior, sidestepping any issues previously experienced by those of us with adult-sized fingers.
The enormous set also includes the necessary minifigures to populate it (and then some), with the full line-up consisting of several members of the Spider-Family – but not the rumoured Spider-Woman, alas – and a cabal of Spider-Villains. All in all, it sounds like a lot of bang for your £274.99 / $299.99 / €299.99 – but while you wait for release, best to let the pictures do the talking…
76178 Daily Bugle will be available exclusively for VIP members from May 26 until June 1, when it will launch for everyone at LEGO.com and in LEGO Stores. Find out more in the original announcement story, then discover why it’s transformed designer Mark Stafford’s dreams into reality.
