How awesome is it to combine the biggest comics franchise together with the most popular modeling hobbyist product? Almost too much awesome to contain in one post, but we’re gonna try. Any one of these sets will buffer your geek street cred into the stratosphere, and if you get all of them, you probably need a separate wing of the mansion reserved just to show them off.
Marvel, now in its fifth generation of fans, has come a long way since the days of simplistic single-protagonist story-lines. Now it’s all about the Avengers, Guardians, and X-Men. Stay up-to-date with these outstanding models of scenes and scenarios from recent films.
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Avengers: Infinity War Thanos: Ultimate Battle 76107 Building Kit (674 Piece)
At 674 pieces this is a mid-range sized set, but it does contain the important base for a full-fledged Avengers Lego collection. It comes with a new M-ship, several key Avengers figures, and the all-important infinity gauntlet. The figures are impressively detailed in Lego style, with Thanos looking impressively buff.
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Avengers: Infinity War Thor’s Weapon Quest 76102 Building Kit (223 Piece)
At 223 pieces, this is a small set, but packs a mighty punch in a small box! It has the much-sought-after teenage Groot, Thor with a hammer modeled after Stormbreaker, Rocket Raccoon with his ship, and a set of “Power Burst elements” accessories, which you can attach to add a flair of still action to posed set pieces.
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Black Panther Pursuit 76047 Toy
Destined to be a sought-after collector’s classic, this set from Captain America: Civil War has Black Panther’s very first outing as a Lego figure. This 287-piece set comes with Captain America’s 4×4 truck, and Black Panther’s Jet, a sleek and beautiful model in black-and-violet color scheme. A modest-sized, but well-thought-out set.
LEGO Super Heroes Super Hero Airport Battle 76051
At 807 pieces, this set just keeps on giving with a total of six figures, one giant mini-figure, and all their accessories. Beyond that, it’s a set from Civil War depicting the airport battle, designed with play and pose value in mind as much as building value. That’s Iron Man, War Machine, Captain America, Winter Soldier, Scarlet Witch, Agent 13, and Ant-Man. All that plus airport-themed props, buildings, and vehicles.
LEGO Super Heroes Attack on Avengers Tower 76038
This Avengers: Age of Ultron set clocks in at 515 pieces, but packs an impressive punch! The main model is just the Avengers’ tower, pretty large at three floors and with packed-in play features on each level. There’s movable parts and props in beautiful miniature detail all over this building. Now add in 5 figures, Ultron Mark 1 & 2, Iron Legions, Iron Man and Thor, plus all their accessories, and it’s a lot of fun in one box.
LEGO Superheroes Avengers Hydra Showdown
A tidy 220 pieces makes this a relatively small set, but it comes with 3 figures which also come in other, larger sets, making an economical way to acquire the figures without having to buy larger sets. That’s Thor, in his updated torso design and cape, plus Hawkeye and a Hydra Henchman. Add in two vehicles, the Hydra buggy and the Avengers’ jeep, with many accessories, and the set packs in some play value for a modest price.
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Iron Man vs. Ultron (76029)
At a mere 90 pieces, this is a mini-set for collectors looking to accessorize their larger sets. Themed from Avengers : Age of Ultron, the set features the figures for Iron Man, an Ultron Sentry Officer, and 2 Ultron Sentries, with accessories for each. Also comes with the Sentry Officer’s vehicle and some token play features. A budget set for collector’s bucket lists.
LEGO Super Heroes 76036 Carnage’s Shield Sky Attack Building Kit
A spare 97 pieces makes this another add-on kit for collectors looking to fill out a large collection. This Ultimate Spiderman set comes with a SHIELD agent, Spiderman in his darker outfit, and Carnage in all his tentacled glory. Carnage is impressively realized, looking savage and menacing. The set has the SHIELD hovercraft, a notably detailed design.
LEGO Super Heroes Captain America Jet Pursuit 76076 Building Kit (160 Pieces)
This modest 160 piece set is sure to be talked about for the innovative Ms. Marvel figure, with an extra-long arm piece to represent her shape-shifting abilities. It also comes with Captain America in pilot garb and the winged Super-Adaptoid android. The vehicle is Captain America’s jet, in striking colors and design.
