2018 LEGO Super Heroes Mighty Micros review

The LEGO Super Heroes Mighty Micros sets, are small, miniaturized versions of Super Heroes characters and vehicles. Each set includes two minifigs with short legs, and two tiny vehicles, plus some minifig accessories. Mighty Micros are great pocket sets for kids fun for racing and collecting, and they also popular with adult minifig collectors. This is the third year for LEGO Mighty Micros, with three sets released each year under DC Comics and three under the Marvel license. Today, we will take a look at the six new Mighty Micros released for 2018. 🙂

#76089 LEGO MIGHTY MICROS: SCARLET SPIDER VS. SANDMAN: Sandman’s Sand Loader is absolutely adorable! It makes a great little toy vehicle for minifigs. Scarlet Spider’s Spider Jet is pretty cool too, and it comes with a printed console piece. Scarlet Spider is equipped with a shovel and Sandman has a sand mallet an d apile of sand. Nice prints on both minifigs both front and back. They each have only one facial print.

➡ #76090 LEGO MIGHTY MICROS: STAR-LORD VS. NEBULA: So much to like about this little set! The tiny Milano looks really good, and if you choose to, you can remove the wheels to make a realistic looking micro-Milano. Or, with the wheels on, the Milano could make a fun little ride in a LEGO City theme park! Also, Star-Lord’s mixed tape is a printed 1×2 tile piece! And, LEGO designers left it generic enough that it could be used in many other applications. The console piece for Nebula’s Necrocraft is a printed piece as well. The two minifigs have simplified prints and cartoonish faces, but they still look great (Star-Lord comes with dual facial prints).

#76091 LEGO MIGHTY MICROS: THOR VS. LOKI: Both Thor’s and Loki’s vehicles are full of useful little pieces; wings, horns, several different shade of gold pieces, various textured slopes, and more. I also like the facial prints on both Thor and Loki (they each have only one face). It’s interesting to note that Loki’s head is a gold element, with a printed on face.

#76092 LEGO MIGHTY MICROS: BATMAN VS. HARLEY QUINN: Batman gets a miniature Batwing, and and Harley Quinn comes with a funny wind-up car. I really like the shaping for both. The bat logo is printed on the Batwing. Both minifigs come with torsos printed at the front and back, and single facial prints. Check out Batman’s face in the video-review below. It’s really well done, and different than what we normally see.

#76093 LEGO MIGHTY MICROS: NIGHTWING VS. THE JOKER: The Joker has the more interesting vehicle in this set, with a printed smile, but I also like the shaping of Nightwing’s little car. Both minifigs come with front and back torso printing, but they only have one facial print. I agree with JANGBRiCKS in the video review below, that Joker’s face is a bit weird with that extremely lopsided mouth.

#76094 LEGO MIGHTY MICROS: SUPERGIRL VS. BRAINIAC: Check out that printed 1×1 round brick Kandor piece Brainiac is holding! That’s a super collectible little item that haven’t appeared in any other set! Both Supergirl’s rocket and Brainiac’s UFO looks great, and comes with printed pieces at the front. The torso prints and face prints are also nice (only one facial print for each).

As you can see, Mighty Micros continues to be a strong line with some very fun pocket-size sets. It’s noteworthy that LEGO was able to cram in playability for kids, interesting building experiences for adults, and collectibility for both kids and adults in such small sets. Each of them are only $9.99, and there are only six sets each year, so they are very affordable collectables. You can find them under the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes and LEGO DC Super Heroes sections of the Online LEGO Shop.

    I thought there were more of them. But with only six per year, that’s not too bad for collecting at all. I was afraid to collect them because they might get out of hand like the Dimensions figures and Mixels, but six is not bad. They look fun.

      Yes, it’s an affordable collection that doesn’t take up too much space or $$$. A nice change from all the humongous sets of recent years. 😀

    I will pick up at least some of these. They look pretty cool.

    What I like the most about these sets are the exaggerated faces. They are so useful for brickfilming. And the occasional printed pieces are nice too.

      That’s a good point about the faces! They are so expressive and over the top! 😀

    I collect these!!! they are very cool!!!! I wish the torsos were more detailed like the regular minifigs , but they are great otherwise.

      It looks hard to see the torsos when they sit in their cars, as they’re meant to…
