LEGO Marvel 76178 Daily Bugle swings back into stock ahead of potential price increase

Is your Spidey sense tingling? There’s good reason: LEGO Marvel 76178 Daily Bugle is back in stock online in the UK and Europe, ahead of what could be an imminent price increase.

76178 Daily Bugle is among the 112 sets that have shot up in price in the US as of August 1, having climbed from an already-expensive $299.99 to an eye-watering $349.99. That’s a significant increase, and one that could yet follow in the UK and Europe come September 1, when the LEGO Group’s summer 2022 price hikes go live on this side of the pond. If the web-slinger’s best set is high on your wish list, you’ll want to lock this price in while you can.

‘Best set’ is of course subjective, but when you’re talking about a 3,772-piece skyscraper brought to life by a whopping 25 minifigures – 19 of which are exclusive to 76178 Daily Bugle – it’s going to take some beating. That probably explains why the first Marvel modular building (followed this month by 76218 Sanctum Sanctorum) has proven pretty difficult to come by, spending a good chunk of its shelf life so far temporarily out of stock.

There’s no telling how long this particular restock of the biggest Marvel set to date, and its new and exclusive Daredevil, Punisher and Blade minifigures, will last. Regardless, with only three weeks until a potential price bump – which could see it rise to as much as £299.99 in the UK and €349.99 in Europe, looking at that US change – we can only recommend swinging for 76178 Daily Bugle as soon as possible.

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. You can follow me on Twitter at @brfa_chris.
