With 3,772 pieces and an eye-watering 25 minifigures in the box, this is one Marvel set you won’t want to miss out on – largely because it’s, well, the largest LEGO Super Heroes set to date. That’s not only by virtue of its part count, but also its dimensions, as the towering skyscraper comes in at an unbelievable 82cm tall.
That means it stretches even higher than 71741 NINJAGO City Gardens, and completely dwarfs the rest of the LEGO Group’s modular buildings. That comparison is only apt because 76178 Daily Bugle also includes connection points to allow you to slot it into your growing LEGO city – or perhaps even connect with future massive Marvel buildings.
If that prediction does pan out, make sure you’re ready for a brand new modular collection by bagging 76178 Daily Bugle. In-store stock is reportedly going to be thin on the ground when shops open later today, so your best is ordering the £274.99 / $299.99 / €299.99 set through LEGO.com as early as possible to avoid disappointment.
You’ll need to be a VIP member to do so, but don’t worry if you’re not yet signed up to the LEGO Group’s loyalty program: it’s absolutely free to join, and nets you all kinds of benefits including early access to sets and points to spend on future purchases and exclusive rewards.
