We first saw them back in February during the New York Toy Fair, but even then, LEGO was a little shy in showing all of its wares as far as being cautious about showing too much on what’s next for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. After the reveal of this year’s first MCU-related LEGO set with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, we now have our first look at the official box art images for Spider-Man: Homecoming. If you recall, LEGO was still keeping a particular set – or a minifig to be exact – under wraps probably for reasons that it may become too much of a spoiler. However, thanks to images posted by Brick Heroes, we now have a look at the mystery minifigure that comes along with LEGO Marvel Superheroes Beware the Vulture (76083). Included also in this reveal are official images of the ATM Heist Battle (76082). Check these out.

As we can see, the not-so-surprising minifig in this set is none other than the Shocker. Played by actor Bokeem Woodbine, Herman Schultz or more commonly known as Shocker to Marvel fans, is one of the film’s hardcore criminals. Equipped with a tech suit that allows him to send lethal shock waves towards anyone who comes in his way, he has proven himself to be a formidable foe against the web slinger in the comics, and together with the Vulture, will probably give Spidey a really hard time throughout the film. Frankly, I hardly see this set as a spoiler and his minifig version does not offer too much of a hint either, save for his shocker-gauntlet thing. The main selling point of the Beware the Vulture set is definitely the Vulture minifig itself, with its brick-built flight suit. I really do hope that the Vulture’s minifig can be posed together with his suit, but considering the overall weight of all those bricks (I like how the designers used the modified gray tiles by the way), I find it difficult to imagine how.
The ATM Heist Battle set on the other hand is relatively small, considering the piece count being at 185 pieces only. However, same as the Beware the Vulture set, I believe that what makes 76082 attractive are the minifigures of the bank robbers that goes along with it. They both come with dual printed heads that shows regular bad guy expressions, and their masked versions as well that takes a hint from the Hulk and Captain America. Both sets also offer newer versions of Spider-Man equipped with the new Power Blast minifig feature.
Spider-Man: Homecoming will swing into US theaters on July 7. But before that, be sure to see first the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 next month, on May 5. The last MCU film of this year is Thor: Ragnarok, which LEGO has dedicated two sets as well.
