LEGO Super Heroes Ant-Man Final Battle

in LEGO Super Heroes

One of the most interesting sets LEGO released this month is the #76039 LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Ant-Man Final Battle. This set is related to the upcoming Marvel superhero film titled “Ant-Man” that is scheduled to make its world premiere in Los Angeles on June 29th, before the general release in North America on July 17th. The film is based on the Marvel Comics characters Scott Lang and his mentor Dr. Hank Pym who are safeguarding the mystery of the Ant-Man technology – which allows its user to decrease in size, but increase in strength. Of course – as in all superhero stories – the heroes will have to face various threats from badguys. 🙂

#76039 LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Ant-Man Review

In the #76039 LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Ant-Man set you can see the story played out. Here is the official description: Capture Yellowjacket in the flying ant’s pincers! Get set for a massive battle on a micro-scale! Ride with Ant-Man on the giant flying ant, firing the flick missiles on each wing. Evade Yellowjacket’s stud-shooters and LEGO brick-built catapult. After landing, use Ant-Man’s special powers to communicate with the ants and activate the Super Jumper to knock over Yellowjacket. Take off again on the flying ant and swoop to capture Yellowjacket in its pincers! Includes 3 minifigures with weapon and accessory elements: Ant-Man, Hank Pym and Yellowjacket. 195 pieces. Price: $19.99 – BUY HERE

The #76039 LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Ant-Man set has a lot going for it. First of all there is the giant ant itself, which looks quite realistic and ant-like. The only thing I don’t like so much is the blue pieces to connect the wings, but these could be changed easily, if you want to.

One of the most talked about feature of this set, ever since we have seen the first images, is the giant LEGO bricks. Having regular LEGO elements and large versions of the same elements is a great way to change the scale of the entire setup. I was hoping that the LEGO logo is printed on the round tiles, but they are in fact stickered. That’s a bit sad, but the large bricks themselves look great! They also serve a functional purpose by being a launcher that you can use to shoot out giant brick-built screws (with stickered round tiles for the screw-heads).

#76039 LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Ant-Man Set Minifigures

Another most talked about feature is the included minifigures. The fact that LEGO added three exclusive and well designed minifigs to such a small licensed set is just awesome. As you can see in the video-review below by JANGBRiCKS, each of the minifigs are fully printed front and back, with double sided head-printing as well. And those helmet pieces are absolutely gorgeous. LEGO has been playing with this new technique they recently developed of moulding together different color plastics, and the helmets made this way look ridiculously good.

Pretty awesome, isn’t it? I think this is one of the best LEGO sets and wisest LEGO purchases of the year; small price, interesting building-techniques, fun play-features, and three amazing minifigs. It’s hard to beat this combination! You should be able to find the set at most LEGO retailers by now (it does fly off the shelves fast though), and also at the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes section of the Online LEGO Shop.

What I don’t get is why you called the flying bug an ant… Ants don’t have wings, do they? :S

Of course they do! Most ant species have wings. At least temporarily during the mating season. 😀

Male and female ants (of all species) have wings. Worker ants don’t.

Female ants (queens) often eat their wings once the nuptial flight is over (and males are dead).

Release dates are often different in different countries. As far as I know we should be getting the rest of the sets in August.

A must need if you ask me. This will defiantly be in my house on the 17th! The figures look great and the set looks perfect. All the Marvel sets that came out and are coming out are worth the prices (Maybe except for that $50 Age of Ultron set with Hulk, Quicksilver, and Captain America), and all the Marvel sets are “Marvel”ous. Pun intended.

So Hank Pym isn’t the main Ant-Man in this incarnation. He was the original Ant-Man in the comics. (That he also has a suit seems to be a shout-out, though.)

From what I gather in the trailer, Hank Pym and Scott Lang have a suit, but only the latter is “Ant-Man”; of course, that doesn’t mean Hank Pym wasn’t an Ant-Man before him. What piques my interest is how Yellowjacket seems to be an antagonist- it’s almost as if they’re poking fun at Hank Pym’s many name changes.

I had to look this up, but Yellowjacket was at first another one of Pym’s incarnations, although there’s also a supervillainess, Rita DeMara, bearing the same name… (although she currently appears to be a superheroine…)

Okay, that giant flying ant is the cutest thing I’ve ever seen.

Yeah, I really like the minifigs too! Funny that you stopped by. I was just thinking of you yesterday, that I haven’t seen you around for a while. Love your new avatar! 😀
