Marvel fever is back again in 2021 and we get a first look at upcoming sets revealing the Avengers and Spider-Man. Buildable Mechs are a theme while the smaller playsets feature an assortment of vehicles. A set featuring Spider-Man’s liar is the largest set in this lineup. This wave of Marvel will be on sale on January 1st 2021.
Rumors are flying about all the live-action Spider-folk who could appear in the next Spider-Man movies, but what about LEGO versions? This brick-built web-head by Build Better Bricks seems like another quality addition. The shaping of Spidey’s mask is well done, with the eyes being particularly nifty. The figure has some great articulation, too, although that did lead to a small trade-off: those Mixel ball joint connectors currently only come in light grey. Still, that’s the price you sometimes pay for a physical model over a digital flight of fancy.
We’ve spotlighted some other creations from this team before. Check them out here!
A new month means new LEGO sets are now available, so here is your TBB New LEGO Set Guide for March 2020. There are 23 new items available (much less than the 153 sets from January but more than the 12 sets from February).

LEGO unveiled one additional set yesterday at Toy Fair New York, LEGO Spider-Man 76151 Venomosaurus Ambush. The 640-piece set features a Venomized tyrannosaurus, a Spider-Buggy, and four minifigures including Spider-Man, Spider-Ham, Iron Spider and Venom.
LEGO requested that pictures of the set not be published until today, hence the confidential marking on the box. The set will retail for US $79.99 beginning June 1st.
As we near the year’s end, LEGO is taking the wraps off all its upcoming 2020 lines, and today we’re getting our first look at eight of the new Marvel sets. Spanning both the Avengers and Spider-Man franchises, the sets include several regular film tie-ins, as well as a new line of mini-mechs for the heroes and villains in the same light-hearted vein as LEGO’s Mighty Micros vehicles. The sets should be available on or slightly before January 1.
Check out all the new sets below, and don’t miss the other new LEGO sets for 2020:
When I was little, one of my favorites nick-nacks was filled with water, a plastic carrot and a few tiny pieces of plastic “coal,” and was labeled “Florida Snowman.” (Look, trust me here. This was hilarious when I was six years old.) I’ve always had a fondness for snow globes. In unrelated trivia, I was also a big Spider-Man fan. I never dreamed, though, that both of those childhood loves would come crashing together. Builder Flambo14 changed all that with a fun LEGO build inspired by Spider-Man: Far From Home. In this creation, Mysterio’s trademark fishbowl-dome head is a LEGO Christmas ornament filled with 1×1 round plates for snow. You’ll aslo find a simple-but-effective microscale New York City skyline and, of course, Spider-Man himself. There’s even a sand-green minifigure telescope as an itty-bitty Statue of Liberty.
Mysterio’s torso has some fun details, too. I like the use of the minifigure ring to help create the eyeball-patterns present on the cape clasps. The smoothness of the wedges used to construct the cape makes the exposed-stud build of the chest feel much more textured, just like the movie’s costume design. There’s also just the right touch of other gold elements to give him a bit of showmanship.
I’d love to see a whole series of Mysterio snow globes. If anyone else takes a swing at one, let us know!
The comic book concept of a multiverse is a cool thing. The heroes and villains you know are seen through a distorted lens, bringing new twists to established characters. Markus Rollbühler brings us a steampunk version of Spider-Man and Doc Ock that could easily fit into a sequel of Into The Spider-Verse.
Spider-Man is still pretty recognizable with signature torso and mask, but the red cloak gives us our first hint that things are different. Markus then makes use of rare parts to complete the look: the hat from the Toy Soldier and legs from The Lone Ranger’s Captain Fuller.
You may know him from Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse or from the comics but, regardless of how you were introduced, Spider-Ham is one of the more creative characters in the Marvel Universe. Alanboar Cheung has captured that creativity in LEGO-form, and this build is fun! Not just in the playful pose, but in the use of parts too. I personally love the hammer built out of turret walls and the chairs used as the ends of his ears. What other creative parts usage can you see? Overall, I think this model is great – a real ham, if you will!
LEGO has officially revealed three new sets from the upcoming Spiderman-Man: Far from Home, which will hit the big screens in July. They bring several new additions to the LEGO Marvel universe, including a some that have been a very long time coming, such as Happy Hogan, who’s finally getting a minifigure 11 years after first appearing in Iron Man. The exact date that these sets will come to shelves is not certain yet, but you can bet they’ll be on shelves by the time the movie debuts; after all, the LEGO sets for Avengers: Endgame are already available now. Check out all the details below.
LEGO has revealed five new sets based on Marvel’s webslinging superhero, Spider-Man. The five sets range from battling mechs to Junior’s racers. The sets will be available for purchase from LEGO this weekend, starting November 24th.
The largest set featuring an imposing mechanized Venom was revealed earlier this summer, but this is the first we’ve seen official photos of the rest of the wave, including lots of new minifigures.
