It’s a general rule of thumb that when a movie that LEGO has rights to produce merchandise of is coming up, we can expect the tie-in sets to arrive well before the actual premiere date. Not only does it help with promotion, the sets can tantalize LEGO fans with spoilers regarding the film’s possible plot. Case in point, this July we’re up to see Spider-Man: Far From Home, the first segment of the new “Phase 4” of the MCU franchise. From trailers, Marvel Comics readers might already have a handle on the supporting cast and villains. Now, casual MCU fans will get the low-down too. Actually, this isn’t a scheduled LEGO reveal. The official images were posted onto the Ukrainian online toy site Playzone (which seems to have been removed already as of this posting). In a well-worn story, the items couldn’t be taken down fast enough and the photos were saved by for all to see. So MINOR SPOILERS AHEAD: here’s an early look at the set images of the LEGO Marvel Superheroes Spider-Man: Far From Home sets grabbed by French LEGO news source Brick Heroes.
Molten Man Battle (76128)
As can be seen from its number, the LEGO Marvel Superheroes Spider-Man: Far From Home Molten Man Battle (76128) goes right after the Captain Marvel tie-in, Skrull Attack (76127). It consists of 294 pieces, expected to retail for $30 USD. Minifigures of Spider-Man (in black, Spider-Man Noir styled costume), Mysterio (with energy hands) and NPC firefighter (with fire extinguisher accessory).
Hydro-Man Attack (76129)
The LEGO Marvel Superheroes Spider-Man: Far From Home Hydro-Man Attack (76129) contains 471 pieces, and includes a brick-built Venice bridge setting and Hydro-Man’s watery platform. Minifigures include: Peter Parker (with web-props), Michelle “MJ” Jones (with gondola and pole), Mysterio and Hydro-Man.
Stark Jet and Drone Attack (76130)
The LEGO Marvel Superheroes Stark Jet and Drone Attack (76130) includes 504 pieces to build the Stark Jet and two attack drones (all with stud shooters). Jet has room for a pilot and two passengers, plus a hidden compartment with chemical canisters that open to store or drop like bombs. Minifigures of Spider-Man (with web-line), Nick Fury (with gun accessory), Happy Hogan and Mysterio (with energy hands).
Its kind of interesting to see how close these LEGO Marvel Superheroes Spider-Man: Far From Home sets are to our initial predictions when the first trailer dropped last January. It only proves further how LEGO Superheroes sets are mostly based on the initial trailers that are usually released by Disney and Marvel. It also looks like that three sets are enough for this subtheme, but we’ll probably know only with an official LEGO preview whether these are all the Far From Home tie-ins or if there will be more. We have no confirmed release date yet, but we may well assume that these will be available sometime in June before Spider-Man: Far From Home premieres in theaters July 5, 2019.
