Straight from the LEGO Summer 2018 launch event, we’re bringing you the latest product reveal in the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes line, scheduled for release later this year — Ant-Man 76109 Quantum Realm Explorers set!
Before you mistake this for 76105 Hulkbuster: Ultron Edition, it’s not! It’s a modified version of it by the famous Singaporean Mecha builder Kelvin Low, who’s better known in the fan-builder circles as Chubbybots. Hardcore Mecha fans like Kelvin will never be satisfied with stock builds which sometimes may have limitations because of the way parts are used. The only right thing to do is fix it! I think with the mods he’s made, it turned out well much better than what LEGO did!
Officially unveiled this morning, we were able to see the new 76105 LEGO Marvel Super Heroes The Hulkbuster: Ultron Edition set at Toy Fair in New York ourselves. The set will retail for $120 and includes 1,363 pieces, with a release date on March 3.
Standing at 10.4 inches (26.5 cm) tall, we can see an interchangeable weaponry arm and an arc reactor that hosts a light brick. Also unique is an exclusive minifigure of Tony Stark’s Mark 34 Iron Man armor, complete with a tiny UCS-like panel.
Warner Bros Games and LEGO have united once more to create an all-new, epic adventure and sequel to the smash hit, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes with their new game, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2. The game follows an original branching storyline, co-written by comic book veteran Kurt Busiek, that follows on directly where LEGO Marvel Super Heroes left off. Players are transported into 18 different Marvel locations that have been “ripped from time and space into the incredible open hub world of Chronopolis”.
You can see a bit of the gameplay in the official trailer:
As one of the worlds largest toys manufacturers, the LEGO Company won’t miss the upcoming San Diego Comic-Con convention to present the new 2018 Super Heroes sets. Even though the convention starts next week, official pictures of the LEGO Super Heroes sets are already available online. The three new medium-sized sets will feature some of our favorite heroes, like Superman and Wonder Woman, as well as characters that have never been released as LEGO minifigures before. Sets will range from $19.99 to $39.99, which is definitely good news considering all the awesome minifigures.
76096 Superman Krypto Team-Up
Love him or hate him, Lex Luther is a pretty cool bad guy! Kale Frost has captured Superman’s archenemy in his famous Warsuit. With its huge Popeye-like forearms and big solid stomping boots, he is intent on ridding the earth of the alien Superman. Kale has taken the color scheme (and a printed tile) from the LEGO Juniors set Batman & Superman vs Lex Luther and created the souped-up custom Lex Mech. I love how he has blended Bionicle parts with System to create this suit of awesome power. Superman better watch his back!
LEGO Super Heroes sets have some of our most favorite minifigures of all times. And, of course, superheroes need epic surroundings for their epic brawls. But the buildings we get in official sets sometimes are not as big and detailed as we would like them to be. Gzu Bricks takes matters into his hands and upgrades the 76038 Attack on Avengers Tower set in the most adorable way — by adding some friendship! The cheery 41119 Cupcake Café set takes up residence right below Tony Stark’s apartment, and now fighting over the last blueberry muffin is the only acceptable reason to start a war.
Who will win is anyone’s guess as these delightful poseable figures go brick head to brick head. Featuring fantastic custom LEGO minifig capes, these custom BrickHeadz designed by Kale Frost are simply brilliant! The scene pits two of DC’s most popular superheroes against each other in a friendly game, as these characters battle it out across the table. Judging by the pieces left on the Chess board, it looks like Superman is losing pieces faster than a speeding bullet.
Retail giant Amazon has published images of the new LEGO sets for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2, which hits theaters May 5. As with previous films in the Marvel cinematic universe, LEGO will release a small wave of sets prior to the film’s opening, and in this case the sets are slated for release April 25. We don’t have word yet on the US prices, but expect them to run just slightly less than the Pound and Euro prices.
