Its look like LEGO is into mechs recently. Following last June’s reveal of the LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes Batman Mech vs. Poison Ivy Mech (76117), it will be joined by another exclusive set coming from the Marvel side of the fence, during this week at San Diego Comic Con. UK’s pop culture hub site, Gizmodo UK, reports that another pair of LEGO mechs will make its way to SDCC in the next few days: the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Spider-Man Mech vs. Venom Mech (76115).
Just to be clear, these first 2019 LEGO Super Heroes sets will not be on sale during SDCC 2018, but will be available starting December 1. The Spider-Man Mech vs. Venom Mech (76115) comes in 604 pieces and will retail for $50 on launch day. It features the minifigures of Spider-Man, Ghost Spider (aka Spider Gwen), Venom and Aunt May. All of the LEGO Marvel superheroes minifigure included in this set comes with their own high-tech weaponry: Spider-Man and Venom with their respective battle mechs, and Ghost Spider with her hoverboard. As for the builds themselves, the Venom Mech is bulkier and more superior in design as compared to that of Spider-Man. It very well suits the intimidating character of my all-time favorite symbiote. In fact, Venom is one of my favorite anti-hero characters in Marvel, and seeing him with an impressive LEGO brick-built ride of his own is absolutely exciting. This is also the third time that we will see a minifigure version of Venom, which is quite different from his past renditions as seen in 2013’s Spider-Man: Spider-Cycle Chase (76004) and 2014’s LEGO Juniors Spider-Man: Spider-Car Pursuit (10665). The Spider-Man Mech vs. Venom Mech (76115) set also sees the return of Aunt May in minifigure form which we last saw from Spider-Man: Web Warriors Ultimate Bridge Battle (76057). This newer version of Aunt May comes with a different torso print, though the face print and hair accessory is basically the same. Finally, fans of Ghost Spider will be glad to see that she finally has an actual LEGO minifigure of her own. We already saw how great she was in LEGO minifig form as a playable character in LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2, and it was a good call on LEGO’s part to have her this time as an actual minifigure.
Here’s LEGO’s press release and product description for the LEGO Marvel Superheroes Spider-Man Mech vs. Venom Mech (76115). Thanks to The Brothers Brick for more info.
