The superhero theme was notably absent from the slew of recently-revealed brand new summer 2021 sets, which includes full waves for Creator, CITY, Speed Champions, Friends and more. However, Instagram user lego_club_news now reports that the next wave of Marvel sets will be revealed on May 11.
Earlier rumours indicated that this summer’s Marvel line-up will circle back to older movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including Captain America: The First Avenger, Iron Man, Guardians of the Galaxy and Black Panther, under the banner of ‘Infinity Saga’.
It’s those sets that lego_club_news reckons will be unveiled next week. According to rumours originally published in March, the wave will consist of six sets ranging from €9.99 to €149.99 in price. Here’s the full list as it stood at the time:
76186 Black Panther Dragon Flyer – 202 pieces, three minifigures, €19.99
76189 Captain America and Hydra Face-Off – 49 pieces, two minifigures, €9.99
76190 Iron Man: Iron Monger Mayhem – 479 pieces, three minifigures, €39.99
76192 Avengers Endgame: Final Battle – 527 pieces, eight minifigures, €89.99
76193 Benatar – 1,901 pieces, six minifigures, €149.99
76200 Sanctuary II – 265 pieces, three minifigures, €29.99
We’ll keep you posted if and when the LEGO Group does lift the lid on these sets (and their also-rumoured follow-up wave in 2022). For now, both their existence and alleged reveal date are all hearsay, so treat them with the same scepticism as all LEGO rumours.
- 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.
