We knew since last September that LEGO has lined up a couple of Marvel and DC-inspired sets under its Superheroes theme, which includes a handful of new Marvel Mighty Micro sets and another that saw the debut of the Red Hulk in his bigfig form. It was also speculated at that time that Ms. Marvel, together with Iron Man’s rival, the menacing Detroit Steel, will also have their very own LEGO sets. These unconfirmed reports are now finally settled when Amazon Japan posted official images of 2017 LEGO Marvel Superheroes featuring the likes of super heroine Kamala Khan, SHIELD Agent Coulson, and Tony Stark’s adversary, Justin Hammer. According to Google’s rough translation, these sets are expected to be released to the general public by December 2 next week. The box art also indicates that the minifigure forms of Iron Man and Super Adaptoid sport a new power blast play feature.
We also have our first look at the official box art for the LEGO Marvel Superheroes Hulk vs Red Hulk 76078 which made their debut during the San Diego Comic Con 2016 last July.
Captain America Jet Pursuit (76076)
Features Ms. Marvel, Pilot Captain America, and Super Adaptoid minifigures.
Iron Man: Detroit Steel Strikes (76077)
Features Justin Hammer, Agent Coulson, Iron Man minifigures, and a brick-built version of Detroit Steel.
Hulk vs. Red Hulk (76078)
Includes bigfig versions of Hulk and Red Hulk, plus She-Hulk and Red She-Hulk in their minifigure versions.
It is interesting to note that Brickset has already listed six sets featuring the highly anticipated MCU films Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Spider-Man: Homecoming. With the climax of the Marvel Cinematic Universe almost upon us, being a LEGO and Marvel fan has never been this exciting.
