Out of the minifigure-scale builds in 76196 The Avengers Advent Calendar, two appear to share the same design as the modules featured in both 76125 Iron Man Hall of Armor (review) and the retired 76167 Iron Man Armoury. the metallic sloped grilles and grey grips match the various subassemblies featured in both.

Whilst neither of them appear to be capable of holding any suits of armour, they should be able to bring a festive touch to any Iron Man display, complete with an extra seasonal suit as one of the Advent Calendar’s exclusive minifigures.

The expansion of 76125 Iron Man Hall of Armor is nothing new for the LEGO Group, with 76167 Iron Man Armoury being introduced to do just that, but only the former is still available on the official online store, meaning you can order it now for a high-tech backdrop to your LEGO Marvel Advent Calendar experience.

LEGO Marvel 76196 Advent Calendar has not been added to the official online store just yet, so the official release date and price is not yet known. However, it’s likely to follow the same pattern as the other variants for Harry Potter and Star Wars with a price near to £24.99 / $39.99 / €29.99 for launch on September 1. We’ll let you know when we know for sure though.
