In case you missed it, there is another SDCC 2020 inspired set that is out there aside from that of the LEGO DC Wonder Woman (77906) and the yet to be released LEGO Star Wars Nebulon-B Frigate (77904). The cancellation of this year’s largest comic book convention has led LEGO to offer these limited edition sets online either through Amazon or LEGO Shop@Home. And this time around, Amazon seems to have the last say when it now offers the LEGO Marvel Superheroes Black Widow Taskmaster’s Ambush (77905).
Based on the upcoming MCU spin-off of the Black Widow (the film has been eventually rescheduled for an April or May 2021 release due to the pandemic), this LEGO version of the Taskmaster’s Ambush (77905) comes in at 230 pieces and was initially offered via Amazon for $40. However, due to the high demand for such exclusive collectibles, this particular set now sells for as high as $135.
The set also follows the familiar SDCC stylized box art featuring a comic book version of Natasha Romanov’s Black Widow. The set itself also features an exclusive minifigure variant of the Black Widow, and our first ever minifig rendition of the Red Guardian. The Taskmaster minifigure that comes with the set is not unique though since this particular character already appears in the LEGO Marvel Superheroes Black Widow’s Helicopter Chase (76162), less the hoodie.
If you’re still eyeing this limited edition LEGO Marvel Superheroes Black Widow Taskmaster’s Ambush (77905) despite the somewhat bloated price, then you still have a chance of getting one. It’s still unclear if this set will make an appearance over at LEGO Shop@Home same with the now out-of-stock LEGO DC Wonder Woman (77906), but when it does, I’ll update this article and keep you in the loop. For now, check out the following product description of the Taskmaster’s Ambush (77905) as posted via Amazon. If you wish to have a detailed look at this set, then Brickset’s Jacob Lyman did an excellent review that you might be interested in.
