LEGO Spider-Man: Homecoming sets review

in LEGO Super Heroes

There are only two LEGO Super Heroes sets this summer, both from the Marvel Comics universe, and related to the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming film. We will look at both sets in detail below. 🙂

#76082 LEGO SUPER HEROES ATM HEIST BATTLE: This is a small set with a minimalist bank kiosk, and three minifigures. As you will see in the video-review below by JANGBRiCKS, the bank itself is not particularly well designed and the play-features don’t work that well either. The three minifigures however are excellent, with very detailed printing all over their bodies, and great looking masks.

Here is the official description of the set: Help Spider-Man to stop the masked robbers burglarizing the bank in this action-packed LEGO Marvel Super Heroes set. The bank opens out for easy play and features an exploding window function, a removable ATM, and an ATM with an explode function to send LEGO cash elements flying everywhere. The two robbers are equipped with a stud-shooting ATM Buster and a gun with hybrid-tech chain to drag the removable ATM away, plus a getaway bike. Attach and fire Spider-Man’s Power Blast weapons to take down the villains. Includes 3 minifigures: Spider-Man and 2 masked robbers. 185 pieces. Price: $19.99 – BUY HERE

#76083 LEGO SUPER HEROES BEWARE THE VULTURE: This set is twice as large both in piece-count and price, and is definitely more substantial and better designed. I really like the look and features of the van; sort of a combination between a van and a space shuttle. I could see having quite a bit of fun with it even outside of the Spider-Man story. The set comes with four excellent minifigures that you can see in the video-review below.

Here is the official description of the set: Team up with Spider-Man and Iron Man to catch up with The Shocker’s Van and tackle the Vulture’s attacks in this thrilling LEGO Marvel Super Heroes set. The Shocker’s Van opens up for easy play and includes a mounted, adjustable 6-stud rapid shooter, a buildable rifle and buildable tech egg, while Vulture’s wings have 2 detachable stud shooters. Includes 4 minifigures: Spider-Man, Vulture, Iron Man and The Shocker. 375 pieces. Price: $39.99 – BUY HERE

LEGO Super Heroes Spider-Man sets are pretty rare, so it’s nice to have two new sets at the same time. They are small, and don’t really offer much as far as displayability, but they do have some play-value, and LEGO went all out with the minifigures. I would say the bank is not really worth it for the set itself, but it is the cheapest way to get the new Spider-Man design. The larger set has better play-value and design, and you also get four excellent minifigs, including Spider-Man, and a unique Iron Man armor. Comparing the two sets, I would say that the second one is an overall better value, but of course you are free to pick your favorite. Both sets are available at the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes section of the Online LEGO Shop.

What do you think? How do you like these two new LEGO Spider-Man: Homecoming sets? Are you looking forward to the movie? Feel free to share your thoughts and discuss in the comment section below! 😉

I like the fact that Spider man can have everyday thugs to Chase down( or should I say swing down). But, other then that I am not that impressed by the sets them selves. My all time favorite ( to this day) is the Web Warriors Ultimate bridge battle .

Yes, it’s nice to see generic guys in Super Heroes sets! The bridge is definitely one of the best sets that came out of the theme. These little sets are more like just ad-ons. 😀

Of which I might do ( add on) at some point , but right now I am focused on city sets . I hear their is supposed to be a couple of Marvel Thor sets coming out in August, I think?

Yes, there are a couple of new Marvel sets coming; one is the #76084 Battle for Asgard, and the other the #76088 Thor vs. Hulk. I really want that big armored Hulk figure! 😀

Yes, same here. I was a little disappointed with the Hulk vs Red Hulk . Mostly on the price but, really it was the vehicles that was a little off putting. I might just change my mind and use the parts for the vehicles as things to throw at each other with? Maybe, have a junkyard set up.

The price of that Hulk vs. Red Hulk set is outrageous. I don’t know what LEGO was thinking. All the other sets are normally priced. You can probably get it on sale somewhere.

The sets are kind of small, but I agree the minifigs are great. I also can’t unsee the Classic Space style of the white van. I might just have to get that and maybe remake it in blue and grey?

Sounds like a great idea for an awesome spacevan! 😀

Or just switch the windscreen to trans-dark-blue and make it Futuron!

That works too! 😀

Spider-Man is actually one of my oldest favorite heroes, but none of these sets do it for me.

Bridge Battle is a cool set, though, although I kinda lack the space and money for it.

It’s nice to hear from a Spider-Man fan to really critique these sets. What would you have preferred to see?

Reply

Håkan June 9, 2017 at 7:28 PM

Part of it could be I’m just being cheap, and that I already have two Spidey minifigs… And I guess the designers would be required to base their works on the movie, instead of choosing freely between characters and locations from the comic book.

I guess I just find them a bit bland, although I could see it could be fun to play out battles with the characters in the Vulture set.

Super Heroes sets do have the reputation of being bland, except for a few exceptional larger sets. But Super Heroes mostly appeals to minifig collectors anyway, so I do understand LEGO’s strategy. The sets themselves are almost always just afterthoughts.

Before I got into LEGO , I collected comic books and my main collection was Spider man comics various versions ( they have different titles) . If this LEGO collection gets to expensive for me I my get back into comics again( one addiction at a time).

Håkan June 9, 2017 at 7:31 PM

I still have a bunch of Spider-Man comics more or less sorted in my shelves, but I’d probably have to move out to the suburbs to be able to store both of my collections…

Naw, addictions work better in pairs. 🙄

Don’t say that . I fall in category as Obi Wan would say ” the weak minded” . Of course I balance the force and do a little bit of both. Mmm, wisdom I have . Found solution I did. Bankruptcy in the near future I see. Troublesome feel , a disturbance in the force I sense. Must meditate on this.

He-he… know the feeling. Still, LEGO is an awesome hobby, and life is short. 😉

Legostuff71 June 9, 2017 at 10:36 PM

LEGO is so much fun and I Couldn’t quit it even if tried and who would want to. It is the most creative and universal hobby out there . It’s like the language of love because LEGO brings out the good things in life. We need that more than ever these days.
