Not even the pandemic will slow LEGO down when it comes to making new sets. In fact, it was during 2020 when LEGO introduced a new art-oriented theme line. Where LEGO Art sets comprise plentiful colored tiles on a baseplate, Brick Sketches uses conventional flat pieces. There’re still plenty of contours on them to give the completed brick-built portraits a 3D-like relief effect. Several Brick Sketches sets debuted these past two years, featuring characters from DC and Disney. Now, LEGO is gearing to launch two new additions to the line. This time they’re featuring familiar faces among Marvel Super Heroes.
According to German LEGO news source Stone Wars, we can expect two new LEGO Brick Sketches sets come April. They were officially listed on LEGO Shop online earlier this month. Quite tellingly, they depict the faces of two key film franchises on cinematic Marvel. One’s from the now-massive MCU focused on the Avengers, while the other is from Sony-Columbia’s separate Spider-Man projects. Expect these two sets next month and collect them both if you’re an artistically inclined LEGO Marvel fan.
