In case you missed it, the LEGO Ideas platform has announced the winners of one of its latest building contests. Kicking off last May, the LEGO Ideas Your Friendly Neighborhood Comic Book Hero Contest challenges all LEGO Spider-Man fans out there to come up with their best LEGO rendition of the web-slinging Marvel superhero. And after two months’ worth of fan submissions, LEGO Ideas has now considered the following entries as the best among the rest. Let’s take a look at our winners.
The building contest itself consists of two categories – Brick and Art – with each category having a Grand Prize Winner and a Runner-Up. I just have to say at this point that the winning entries for the Brick Category are just mind-blowing. I can just see how these original creations can inspire future LEGO set offerings. Perhaps as a comic book cover subtheme of LEGO Art? I guess we just have to wait and see.
LEGO’s online store has been updated to now include three LEGO Marvel Spider-Man: No Way Home tie-in sets, all scheduled to be released on October 1st. I have to say that this came in as a surprise, and not to mention bundled with a possible spoiler alert. LEGO has a somewhat good track record of spoiling things for MCU fans, so if you’re mindful of these things then I guess you have to click that back button right now.
With that out of the way, let’s look at what these three sets have to offer. From the get-go, we have two standard sets included in this subtheme, with one particularly labeled for budding LEGO fans. The first and most obvious set is the Spider-Man at the Sanctum Workshop (76185) featuring a new minifigure version of the Sorcerer Supreme, including a new cape element for the Cloak of Levitation. I’m really glad that LEGO opted for an actual LEGO piece for this one, given the sentient cloak’s role in their fight against Thanos in Infinity War. I’m happy that it was not reduced to yet another piece of LEGO fabric. The second set, Spider-Man’s Drone Duel (76195), gives us a new version of both the Vulture and Spidey. I’m not really sure how these sets foreshadow any plot points in the upcoming film. But seeing how they are designed offers a strong indication of how things might turn out for Spider-Man.
Here are the set’s official images and you may click on their respective affiliate links if you wish to know more about them. Again, these sets are all slated to be released in October just in time for the holidays. Marvel’s Spider-Man: No Way Home is scheduled to be released in cinemas in December.
I guess you have to make space for one more brick-built LEGO sculpture this April. After a LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Carnage (76199) set was eventually unveiled a couple of weeks ago, it was only a matter of time before we see Marvel’s favorite symbiote officially given the LEGO treatment. LEGO Shop@Home has now officially listed a LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Venom (76187) set slated to arrive on April 26, 2021.
Though I understand that most LEGO Marvel fans are looking forward to having this new Venom set, I have to say that its reveal is a bit underwhelming. Partly because right off the bat, it is simply a recolored version of what we saw with Carnage’s brick version. In fact, it seems to use the same kind of LEGO elements (with a different color scheme of course), with 20 additional LEGO pieces thrown into it. However, to give this set its defining feature, a long protruding tongue and a unique printed tile piece bearing the anti-hero’s name, are also included in this official LEGO sculpture of Venom.
If you consider the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Venom (76187) set as a must-have this April, then you may want to take a look at its product description and official images below. It will be available at the end of the month retailing for $59.99. You may click on the following affiliate link below to add this to your LEGO wishlist.

If the first wave of LEGO Marvel 2021 sets were a bit lackluster for some, then you might find this next offering of LEGO Marvel 2021 2H (or 2nd half of the year) sets more promising – well if we will consider the rumors themselves. And after the reveal of the LEGO Marvel Carnage (76199) helmet a couple of days ago, it may seem that the rumor mill may be pretty accurate this time.
Thanks to our friends over at Promobricks, we can now have a glimpse of what LEGO has in the works for its LEGO Marvel 2021 2H sets. I’ve mentioned some of these sets in my previous posts with links provided below for your reference.

After a series of amusing misdirects from its cast, Marvel Studios have finally dropped the real, working title of its next film in Jon Watt’s Spider-Man trilogy. The Spider-Man: No Way Home is confirmed to be arriving in cinemas this Christmas. Watch the teaser trailer below.
If you recall, there was some kind of hype-building going on these past few days coming from Tom Holland (playing Peter Parker), Zendaya (MJ), and Jacob Batalon (Ned Leeds). Each of them gave their “take” on what could be the working title on this next Spider-Man film. However, it was immediately clear that these are just their way of playing with words, hinting at the idea of an impending title reveal anytime soon. And like clockwork, Marvel Studios has just released the film’s official title, delivered through a short skit about the trio’s predisposition for spoilers.
The title is definitely something to think about, and many Marvel fans took it to the internet on what this could reveal about the movie’s plot. One key element in the reveal teaser is the cryptic whiteboard found in the hallway. The board seems to reflect a brainstorming session for the film’s possible titles, riddled with enigmatic symbols and phrases that somehow relate to the film’s title. Like a trail of bread crumbs, these pieces of clues may eventually lead to what Peter Parker has thought since the previous films – the existence of the MCU multiverse. And considering that the Spider-Man: No Way Home evokes a certain feeling of frustration and despair for not finding one’s way back home, we can somehow theorize that our friendly neighborhood web-crawler has to traverse so many “worlds” (or alternate realities, perhaps) to find his very own.
With more than 4 million views as of this posting, the hype for this film is continuously building. We can also expect that the months leading to its premiere will be riddled with other promotions and tie-in merchandise to build on its publicity. LEGO for one has consistently released tie-in sets for the two previous Spider-Man installments in the form of the ATM Heist Battle (76082) and Beware the Vulture (76083) sets from Spider-Man: Homecoming, and Molten Man Battle (76128), Hydro-Man Attack (76129) and Stark Jet and the Drone Attack (76130) sets from Spider-Man: Far From Home. And given a December theatrical screening for Spider-Man: No Way Home, then we can assume that any LEGO-related sets will be revealed sometime in the third quarter of this year.
Whatever is the case, these upcoming LEGO tie-in sets will surely reveal some aspects of the film’s storyline and hopefully give us a glimpse of what to expect from this third installment. For now, let’s just see where the trail of bread crumbs and whiteboard clues will lead us.
So what do you think will this third Spider-Man film be all about? Does it really point us to the MCU multiverse moving forward? And what new LEGO Spider-Man sets can we possibly expect from this film franchise?

After making its debut at the New York Toy Fair this weekend, LEGO has finally updated its servers to list the LEGO Marvel Spider-Man Venomosaurus Ambush (76151), with a release date of June 1, 2020. Check out its high-resolution images below.
This next LEGO Marvel Spider-Man set, following the official reveal of the Venom Crawler (76163), puts the spotlight once more on Marvel fandom’s favorite Symbiote. Coming in at 640 pieces the Venomosaurus Ambush (76151) is expected to retail for $ 79.99 and includes a buildable Venomized dino (much similar to a T.rex) a mega-buggy, and four minifigures. As I’ve mentioned before, what practically could be the main selling point of this set is the inclusion of the first-ever Spider-Ham minifigure which I feel will be quite popular to collectors.

It looks like we’ll be seeing more of Venomized LEGO sets for this year. Following the official reveal of the LEGO Marvel Spider-Man Venom Crawler (76163), there is still one particular Venom-inspired set that LEGO has been putting under wraps since it was first presented at the Nuremberg Toy Fair last month. But this time, the LEGO Booth at the New York Toy Fair 2020 pulls the veil from the LEGO Marvel Spider-Man Venomosaurus Ambush (76151) for all LEGO fans to see. Zusammengebaut is still reporting from the Javits Center, sharing to us the rest of this set’s details.
For starters, I’ve opted not to post the box art image of the LEGO Marvel Spider-Man Venomosaurus Ambush (76151) just to be on the safe side of things. If you refer back to Andres’ post, the box in question that was displayed at the toy fair has the dreaded “CONFIDENTIAL” watermark clearly placed on it. Though Andres claims that the embargo for this set has been probably lifted by now as of press time, I think I will be playing it safe here.
Furthermore, I have to correct my earlier post when I said that the LEGO Marvel Spider-Man Venomosaurus Ambush (76151) features a dinosaur mech similar to what you can find in the LEGO Jurassic World T. rex vs Dino-Mech Battle (75938) set. As it turns out, it seems to be a genetically modified dino whose embryo has been corrupted by the Venom symbiote. It also includes a smaller monster truck build, a dinosaur egg incubator, and four minifigures, plus a skeleton.
I love how the Venomized dino turned out actually, especially with its black and white color scheme. Though the venom plumes are made up of stickers, it doesn’t make this Venom Dino less menacing. However, I think LEGO Marvel fans will agree that one of the main selling points of this set is the inclusion of our first-ever Spider-Ham minifigure. The minifig itself comes with a new head mold and a hotdog accessory. The print on Spider-Ham’s head is pretty impressive, especially the details on its snout.
The LEGO Marvel Spider-Man Venomosaurus Ambush (76151) comes in at 640 pieces and is expected to be released on March 1st. There’s no mention of its retail price, but since the embargo is expected to be lifted soon, expect this set to be listed at LEGO Shop@Home any moments from now.
LEGO gave us a glimpse of things to come at this year’s Nuremberg Toy Fair in Germany, and if you recall from last week, we can expect two sets coming from the LEGO Marvel Spider-Man franchise. And this time around, LEGO Shop@Home has finally unveiled the LEGO Marvel Spider-Man Venom Crawler (76163), slated to be released on March 1st.
The LEGO Marvel Spider-Man Venom Crawler (76163) comes in at 413 pieces and features Spider-Man, Iron Venom, and Carnage in their minifigure forms. The Iron Venom is the first minifigure of its kind, perhaps as a reference to the Invincible Iron Man #5 comics released in 2017. While this set also features our third Carnage minifigure following 2015’s Carnage’s SHIELD Sky Attack (76036), and last year’s Spider-Man Bike Rescue (76113).
Here’s the official product description for the LEGO Marvel Spider-Man Venom Crawler (76163) which will retail for $29.99

We caught a glimpse of things to come for LEGO’s licensed sets during the recently concluded Nuremberg Toy Fair. And for those of you who were following this news, it was pretty obvious that LEGO is putting a tight lid on some of these licensed sets until such time their respective embargos are lifted. However, news along the grapevine suggests that there is still more to expect from LEGO’s licensed themes, particularly from its 2020 LEGO Marvel Superheroes.
LEGO Marvel Eternals
According to a report from Promobricks, we can still expect a handful of LEGO Marvel sets that are based on new subthemes or titles. We already know that a LEGO Marvel Black Widow’s Helicopter Chase (76162) is coming out in March as a tie-in set for the upcoming Black Widow spin-off MCU film, and for the second half of 2020, we will also be seeing another round of MCU-inspired sets in the form of the LEGO Marvel Eternals sets. Specifically, we can expect four (4) sets for this subtheme somewhat similar to how LEGO released tie-in sets for the Spider-Man: Far From Home film. As of now, we only know of the price of the small set, 76145, under this Marvel subtheme which is expected to retail for 9.99 Euro. We’re looking for a release date sometime in October, or earlier during the second half of this year, just in time for the marketing campaign for the film which will land in theaters in November.
LEGO Marvel Spider-Man
Other than the LEGO Marvel Spider-Man Venom Crawler (76163) whose images were recently found in LEGO servers, only to be removed afterward, we can look forward to another LEGO Spidey set to follow soon. A LEGO Marvel Spider-Man vs Venom (76151) is also expected to arrive, focusing more on the web crawler’s titular symbiote nemesis. This development is exciting at many levels because other than putting the spotlight on Venom as a LEGO set, it further confirms the eventual cinematic crossover of MCU’s Spider-Man to that of Sony’s version of Venom. The LEGO Marvel Spider-Man vs Venom (76151) set is described to feature a large brick-built black mech lizard and a smaller vehicle with shooters. The black mech lizard is obviously the centerpiece of this set akin to the Venom Crawler. However, fans will be excited to know that other than the Spider-Man, Venom, and Iron-Spider minifigures included in this set, this will be our first-ever set to feature a Spider-Ham minifigure. That certainly is interesting.
LEGO Marvel Avengers
Loki is returning to the LEGO limelight with a new set dedicated to the mischievous Norse god. The LEGO Marvel Wrath of Loki (76152) is expected to be a substantially large 4+ set that features an Avenger Tower, a small Quinjet, and a green aircraft for Loki and five minifigures: Loki, Hulk, Thor, Iron Man, and Captain Marvel.
S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Helicarrier will also be returning in LEGO form this 2020, though in a smaller version. Tagged as set 76153, it is expected to retail for 120 Euros, significantly smaller to that of 2015’s The SHIELD Hellicarrier (76042) which retailed for $350. However, this newer version of the Hellicarrier packs a lot of minifigs, including Iron Man, Thor, Captain Marvel, Black Widow, Nick Fury, War Machine and a SHIELD Agent. War Machne is said to have a new shoulder cannon, while another Marvel villain will be coming back in LEGO form – MODOK will be returning in this set, though not in minifigure form as we first saw him in Avengers: Hulk Lab Smash (76018) back in 2014. This newer version of MODOK will be brick-built so its kind of interesting how this will turn out. This newer SHIELD Hellicarrier (76153) will come in a gray and blue color scheme, plus a blue-yellow Quinjet that can land on the Hellicarrier itself.
Other than these two sets, we can also expect three additional Avengers-inspired sets such: a new Hulkbuster (76164) which includes minifigures of Iron Rescue, and two SHIELD Agents; the previously reported Iron Man Bust (76165), and a new and larger Avengers Tower (76165) featuring seven new minifigs: Red Skull, Iron Man, Black Widow, two SHIELD Agents, and two undisclosed villains or superheroes.
To sum it up here’s what we know so far about these 2020 LEGO Marvel Superheroes sets slated to arrive this year.

LEGO Marvel Eternals (76154) – €19.99 | October 2020 release date

Other officially released LEGO Marvel set includes:
A couple of weeks ago, retailers have started releasing wave upon wave of product listings and images for 2020’s LEGO Marvel Avengers and Spider-Man sets. This time around, LEGO servers have been updated recently to include better images of some of these sets. Product listings are not available as of press time, but I surmise that it will be available soon.
Noticeably, this new collection of LEGO Marvel Avengers and Spider-Man sets features several brick-built mechs and a handful of interesting minifigs that serious collectors will enjoy. We have a new minifigure version of Thanos, a more detailed Iron Man armor, a Spider-Girl Anya Corazon version, and a much-coveted Spider-Man Noir minifig. As I mentioned before, the design builds may not exactly appeal to most adult fans of LEGO, but the minifigures that go with them are a good incentive to get them.
These sets are expected to go live for sale both online and in-store starting January 1st. Be sure to keep tabs with shop.LEGO.com for more product updates later on. In the meantime, check out these better, clearer official images.
