LEGO Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Milano vs. Abilisk Set! Baby Groot!

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 LEGO The Milano vs. The Abilisk 76081 Box

While 2017 is off to a hot start from many of the most popular Marvel manufacturers such as Hasbro, Sideshow Collectibles, Kotobukiya and Diamond Select Toys, the offerings have been a little… light… this year, with only the new Marvel Micro Muggs having hit thus far. But there’s a lot to look forward to in the coming months, including not only the Coulson and Ms. Marvel sets–but also new LEGO Guardians of the Galaxy 2 sets! And the headliner is the new LEGO Milano vs. The Abilisk 76081 set…

LEGO Marvel 2017 Mighty Micros Sets Released! Thanos!

lego-marvel-wolverine-vs-magneto-mighty-micros-box

Last year, The LEGO Group (TLG) burst onto the scene with the inaugural series of bizarre LEGO Marvel Mighty Micros sets featuring superheroes and villains battling it out… in race cars. Most of us crusty old folks agreed that the ludicrous line was destined to be a spectacular failure, crashing and burning as quickly as it came. So of course the line turned out to be a huge success, containing some of the best-selling LEGO Marvel sets ever. And now, the 2017 LEGO Marvel Mighty Micros are up for order, including Magneto, Wolverine, Scorpion, and… Thanos driving the Infinity Gauntlet Mobile?!

LEGO Spider-Man Ghost Rider Team-Up 76058 Review

LEGO Ghost-Rider Team-Up Review and Photos

Although they don’t release anywhere near the quantity of Marvel toys each year as Hasbro does, The LEGO Group has become one of the most consistently great manufacturers of Marvel figures over the last few years. And the set I’m covering for review today may be one of the single-best entries they’ve ever put out: the LEGO Spider-Man Ghost Rider Team-Up is available for $19 right now, and is a must-own for Ghost Rider fans…

LEGO Marvel Summer 2016 Sets Released! Doctor Strange!

LEGO Spider-Man Web Warriors Ultimate Bridge Battle Set Box

While Hasbro has spoiled Marvel Legends collectors with new figures released every month this year, LEGO collectors have it rougher, with only two full waves of LEGO Marvel sets being released per year. The Winter sets were focused on Captain America Civil War, but the LEGO Marvel Summer 2016 sets came available for sale online and in stores this month and include a variety of Spider-Man sets, as well as exclusive Civil War and Doctor Strange movie sets!

LEGO Doctor Strange Set Revealed & Photo! LEGO 76060

It’s taken a lot longer than I expected for the first image of the LEGO Marvel Doctor Strange set to appear. While the set was shown at the UK Toy Fair in January (with photography forbidden), the Sorcerer Supreme was absent entirely at the New York Toy Fair 2016 in February. But it was only a matter of time until the Master of Mysticism made his brick-form presence felt, and the LEGO Doctor Strange 76060 movie set has now been revealed!

UPDATE: Images have been removed from the site as per the request of The LEGO Group.

Toy Fair 2016: LEGO Marvel Spider-Man Bridge Battle Set!

Toy Fair 2016 LEGO Marvel Ultimate Bridge Battle 76057 Box

Usually I can fit the entire name of a product into the allowed number of characters for an article title, but such is not the case with this year’s single biggest LEGO Marvel Summer 2016 set: the LEGO Marvel Spider-Man Web Warriors Ultimate Bridge Battle 76057 (try saying that three times fast). I gained a new appreciation for the LEGO Doc Ock’s Tentacle Trap set at New York Toy Fair 2016, but even so, that set can’t even approach the sheer coolness of what is almost certainly my favorite LEGO Marvel set yet…

Summer 2016 LEGO Marvel Sets Photos! Vulture! Scorpion!

Ghost Rider LEGO Minifigure Summer 2016 Set

Traditionally, LEGO doesn’t allow photography of its licensed summer sets until the New York Toy Fair that takes place in February. But some traditions are made to be broken, and at the Nuremberg Toy Fair 2016, TLG is allowing photography of three out of the four summer 2016 LEGO Marvel sets for the very first time! It looks like it’ll be at least a few weeks before we see the Doctor Strange set, but the Spider-Man sets (including Scorpion, Spider-Woman, Kraven, Vulture, Scarlet Spider and more!) are looking mighty fine…

LEGO Civil War Crossbones' Hazard Heist 76050 Set Box

2016 LEGO Marvel & DC Sets Released In Stores & Photos!

LEGO Avenjet Space Mission Set Released

I had a thoroughly invigorating New Year’s Eve, full of playing LEGO video games and then getting to bed soon after midnight. Why? Because I wanted to be well-rested, as today is one of my favorite holidays–the first LEGO new release day of the year!

LEGO Marvel 2016 Mighty Micros Sets & Minifigures!

2016 LEGO Mighty Micros Marvel Sets Revealed

When the chibi-styled LEGO Star Wars Micro-Fighters first hit stores in 2014, initial reactions to the cutesy take on classic Star Wars vehicles was a bit mixed (to say the least). But the low-priced Micro-Fighters sets found their footing and have become a consistent top-seller for LEGO–so much so that now the style is expanding to other licenses! I imagine that these 2016 LEGO Marvel Mighty Micros sets are going to be a but, uh… controversial… but no one can say they’re not “unique”, that’s for sure!

2016 LEGO Civil War Sets Revealed

Obviously I went and jinxed myself by making the assertion that this was going to be a slow Marvel toy news week because of the release of Star Wars, because now I’m getting positively slammed with new photos, news and pre-orders for all manner of Marvel toys! And the latest news to leak out continues the trend of early-announced Captain America: Civil War movie toys–this time, in brick form!

LEGO Marvel 2016 Sets Revealed! THANOS Minifigure!

LEGO Marvel 2016 Avenjet Space Mission Box

Seeing as how the calendar claims today is the first day of December 2015, it’s probably time that we heard about the Winter 2016 LEGO Marvel sets, right…? Well, yes and no. While most of LEGO themes’ sets for the new year roll out January 1st, the LEGO Marvel 2016 sets are not among them. We’ll have to wait a while longer for those.
