Attention LEGO fans and collectors: if you happen to be a fan of both the interlocking brick toys and supeheroes — and I’m sure there are plenty of you out there that meet both of those criteria — then this summer is going to be awesome for you. Via Comic Book Resources, the folks at LEGO have just given us a first look at several new Marvel and DC playsets that are heading our way soon, featuring characters like Spider-Man, Batman, and the Suicide Squad. Well, sort of the Suicide Squad. What, did you think they’re going to make a toy for “ages 4 and up” with the words “Suicide” scrawled across the box? (between us chickens though, I kind of wish they could too).
Check out pictures of the sets in the gallery below!
First up in the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Spider-Man set is Spider-Man: Web Warriors Ultimate Bridge Battle. This one comes with seven minifigures, which include the Scorpion, Kraven the Hunter, Green Goblin, Aunt May, Spider-Girl, Scarlet Spider and Spider-Man. The building parts of the set offer a section of bridge, Goblin Glider, Taxi and a Police ATV. Unfortunately, there is no Gwen Stacy figure, so you can’t play “Green Goblin throws Gwen off the bridge and her lame boyfriend accidently kills her.” Sorry
kids weird adults.
The second Spidey set is a smaller one, the Spider-Man: Ghost Rider Team-Up. This set offers just three minifigures, Hobgoblin, Ghost Rider and Spider-Man. Buildable vehicles include a Ghost Rider Bike, Goblin Glider and a traffic light model. Ghost Rider currently doesn’t have a comic on the stands or a movie in development, so I have to wonder why him and not, say, Iron Man, but there you have it.
The final Spider-Man set looks to be the coolest, and it’s Spider-Man: Doc Ock’s Tentacle Trap. For this one you get five minifigures including Doc Ock, the Vulture, Captain Stacy, White Tiger and Spidey. The buildable portions of the set include Doc Ock’s Octo-Bot and a police speedboat.
On the DC Superheroes tip, we’ve got the Dark Knight in Batman Scarecrow Harvest of Fear. This set offers five minifigures, including Gas Mask Batman, Blue Beetle, Scarecrow, Killer Moth and a farmer. The three vehicles that can be built in the set include The Batcopter, Scarecrow’s harvester and the farmer’s tractor. Not entirely sure why Blue Beetle is there, but hey, why not.
And finally, we’ve got the Suicide Squad set that isn’t really a Suicide Squad set. Technically, this LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes set is titled Batman Killer Croc Sewer Smash. But included among the set’s five minifigures are Suicide Squad members Killer Croc, Captain Boomerang and Katana. So, it’s a tie-in without being a tie-in. The set also includes Batman and Red Hood minifigures. The three vehicles that can be built include the Bat-Tank, Killer Croc’s Battle Chomper and Red Hood’s motorbike.
