2016 LEGO Super Heroes sets reviews

A number of new LEGO Marvel and LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes sets were released just a few days ago, and today we will look at them in more detail. The sets themselves have great designs, and there is also a number of new LEGO Super Heroes minifigures that collectors are going to be happy about. So let’s take a look. 🙂

LEGO Super Heroes Contest Prize

Under the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes line there are two excellent sets; the #76048 LEGO Super Heroes Iron Skull Sub Attack and the #76049 LEGO Super Heroes Avenjet Space Mission. I think the Scuba Iron Man and Space Iron Man minifigs look spectacular, so is Hyperion, Captain Marvel, and Thanos. You can see all the functions and features of both sets as well as the minifigs in the video-reviews below by JANGBRiCKS.

#76048 LEGO SUPER HEROES IRON SKULL SUB ATTACK: Dive to rescue Scuba Captain America from Iron Skull! Iron Skull has trapped him in his awesome Iron Skull Sub! Go deep underwater with Scuba Iron Man to save your fellow Avenger. Fend off attacks by the Hydra diver on his underwater jet and dodge the Sub’s stud shooters. Then face off against Iron Skull and defeat him to free Scuba Captain America! Includes 4 minifigures: Scuba Iron Man, Scuba Captain America, Iron Skull and a Hydra diver. Iron Skull Sub measures over 3” (9cm) high, 9” (23cm) long and 4” (12cm) wide. 335 pieces. Price: $29.99 – BUY HERE

#76049 LEGO Super Heroes

#76049 LEGO SUPER HEROES AVENJET SPACE MISSION: Stop Thanos invading planet Earth with the 2-in-1 Avenjet! Mighty Thanos and Hyperion are preparing to attack Earth! Help Iron Man, Captain Marvel and Captain America stop them with the super-fast Avenjet! Attack with the flick missiles, then separate the mini-jet and fire its stud shooters. Can the Super Heroes save the planet? Includes 4 minifigures: Captain Marvel, Space Iron Man, Space Captain America and Hyperion, plus a Thanos big figure.

We also got some new sets in the LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes line; the #76044 LEGO Super Heroes Clash of the Heroes, the #76045 LEGO Super Heroes Kryptonite Interception, and the #76046 LEGO Super Heroes Heroes of Justice: Sky High Battle. The new Batmobile and Batwing look great in my opinion; friendly size, great shaping, fun play features. Although I agree with JANG that the Batwing should really have had black pieces on the underside of the wings. It should be easy to swap them out however, as they are just standard plates. See details in the video-reviews below.

#76045 LEGO SUPER HEROES KRYPTONITE INTERCEPTION: Intercept the Kryptonite with the armored Batmobile! Speed down to the docks with Batman where LexCorp henchmen are busy storing the Kryptonite. Fire the Batmobile’s stud shooters and swerve the forklift’s flick missiles. Open the doors of the Batmobile and attack with Batman’s silver Batarang. Explode the Kryptonite from the forklift and dodge shots from the Henchman’s bazooka. Can Batman escape with the toxic cargo? Includes 3 minifigures: Batman and 2 LexCorp henchmen. Batmobile measures over 1” (5cm) high, 7” (18cm) long and 3”(10cm) wide. 306 pieces. Price: $29.99 – BUY HERE

#76046 LEGO Super Heroes

#76046 LEGO SUPER HEROES HEROES OF JUSTICE: SKY HIGH BATTLE: Pilot the Batwing to rescue Lois from Lex Luthor’s helicopter! Join forces with Super Heroes to take on Lex Luthor in thrilling battle high above Metropolis. Launch the Batwing with Batman in the cockpit and fold out the wings. Fly with Superman and Wonder Woman to stop Lois falling. Dodge the LexCorp helicopter’s Kryptonite flick missiles and fire back with the Batwing’s awesome rapid shooter. Then take the battle down to the streets with Batman’s grapple hook gun. Includes 5 minifigures: Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Lex Luthor and Lois Lane. Batwing measures over 1” (4cm) high, 9” (23cm) long and 11” (30cm) wide. 517 pieces. Price: $59.99 – BUY HERE

Shop 2016 LEGO DC Super Heroes

All in all I think this is a good wave for both LEGO Super Heroes lines. The sets are solidly built and have fun play-features. Also, compared to the modest size and price of the sets, the number of minifigures included is very high, and we get several completely new characters or variations of previous characters. Basically the minifigs themselves are worth the price of each set, but the vehicles are great too. So win on both accounts.

What do you think? How do you like the new LEGO Marvel and LEGO DC Super Heroes sets? Do you have any favorites? Are you planning to get any of them? And how do you like the minifigures? Feel free to share your thoughts and discuss in the comment section below! 😉
