LEGO Marvel 76178 Daily Bugle stock may be limited in-store

Supplies of 76178 Daily Bugle may be limited in LEGO Stores when the huge Marvel set launches tomorrow.

According to Brick Fanatics’ sources, LEGO brand stores will only be getting a handful of copies of 76178 Daily Bugle for the set’s VIP early access launch tomorrow, May 26. That means you’ll likely need to rock up very early to have a hope of securing one in person.

It’s a move that suggests the LEGO Group may be prioritising online sales – at least where 76178 Daily Bugle is concerned – reflecting a wider shift towards e-commerce platforms, as noted in the company’s 2020 financial results.

That is simply to say that traffic to LEGO.com nearly doubled last year compared to 2019 amid the backdrop of the pandemic, and the LEGO Group could easily be keen to keep its consumers shopping online rather than journeying into LEGO Stores in the current climate. Whatever the real reason, expect stock of the 3,772-piece Marvel set to be limited in LEGO Stores tomorrow.

If you’re desperate to pick up 76178 Daily Bugle on day one, then, your best bet might be to grab it directly from LEGO.com as soon as it goes live. That’s at midnight tonight if you’re a VIP member, so set your alarm – or sign up to our newsletter on the right hand side of this page (or at the bottom, if you’re on mobile) for a direct reminder.

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.
