After Yahoo News released our first batch of official images of the LEGO Marvel Superheroes Captain Marvel and the Skrull Attack (76127), additional images of this upcoming set are now uploaded via LEGO’s servers. We can now see in close detail the features of this MCU tie-in set. The most noticeable build in this set features an older version of the Quinjet in the early days of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Captain Marvel and the Skrull Attack (76127)
Coming in at 307 pieces, the Captain Marvel and the Skrull Attack (76127) set also comes with various play features such as a pair of flick-missile shooters which can shoot 4 projectiles at once, and an opening hatch at the back of the Quinjet. It is also our first LEGO Marvel Superheroes set that features the minifigure versions of Captain Marvel, including Skrull baddie, Talos, a younger version of Nick Fury, and Captain Marvel’s (aka Carol Danvers) pet cat Goose.
LEGO has not announced an exact release date yet, but seeing that these images are now uploaded via LEGO’s servers then it might be just a matter of days before we see them listed at LEGO Shop@Home. I know some fans are not really that happy on how this set turned out- with some citing the design of the Quinjet as somewhat bland and uninspiring. However, having Captain Marvel in her first minifigure form is good enough reason to purchase this set.
Another MCU trailer has broken the internet. Currently trending at #3 over at YouTube with more than 14 million views as of this posting, Captain Marvel’s official trailer has taken the online world by storm in less than 12 hours. In this official trailer, we see the Kree heroine being thrown from space and landing on an all-too-familiar 90s pop culture symbol. In case you missed it, here’s the official trailer once again.
We don’t need the power of the Mind Stone to be certain that LEGO has something in the works for MCU 9th Phase 3 film. Since March early this year when Marvel Entertainment released its official press release about MCU’s cosmic powered heroine, I made a wishlist of LEGO tie-in sets that I would like to see before the film debuts on March 8, 2019. And this month when official set images of Captain Marvel were revealed, we had a better look at Starforce, the Kree’s elite military group whom Captain Marvel is affiliated, and the Skrulls which is the film’s supposedly main antagonists.
Similar to LEGO Marvel Superheroes Guardian of Galaxy Vol. 2 and Black Panther subthemes, we can expect that Captain Marvel will also have two or three LEGO tie-in sets under her name. Some of the things that I definitely expect are sets where we can find Captain Marvel in her various minifigure renditions which included her predominantly green Starforce uniform, another uniform iteration with the signature mask and helmet on, and the upgraded red and blue uniform as seen in the comic books.
As I mentioned before, another LEGO Marvel Superheroes Captain Marvel set will most likely include Nick Fury in his younger years as a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, and the Kree hero Captain Mar-vell (played by Jude Law). Another candidate will be a set that includes the shape-shifting Skrulls – something similar perhaps to that beachfront scene where the Skrulls have supposedly arrived.
It is somehow established that most of MCU’s recent movie trailers turn out to be teasers as well for future LEGO sets. Some of these are GOTG’s battle with the Abilisk as depicted in The Milano vs. The Abilisk (76081), Black Panther’s Royal Talon Fighter Attack (76100), and Thor Ragnarok’s Thor vs. Hulk: Arena Clash (76088). It is not therefore, a long shot to consider that any of the scenes that we saw in Captain Marvel’s official trailer will find its way as an official LEGO Marvel Superheroes set early next year.
Which particular scene from Captain Marvel’s official trailer do you think will become an official LEGO set? Let me know about your wish list and share them in the comments below.
