LEGO Marvel SuperHeroes - Spider-Man (and SHIELD!)
I was so excited to see this new LEGO set! Not because it's a new LEGO Marvel Super Heroes set, but because it is a new LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Spider-Man with SHIELD set! All the Marvel Cinametic Universe fans must have heard already that Spider-Man is finally going to appear in the movie chain from next year (in Captain America: Civil War). This new LEGO set is like a confirmation that we will be seeing Spidey in our favourite movie chain very soon!
Of course I'm not saying that this set is definitely related to the movies, so I wouldn't know if Carnage will appear or if Spider-Man is going to be wearing black. But it's still very exciting!
The LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Carnage's SHIELD Sky Attack (RRP £11.99, aiming for 6 to 12 years old) comes with 3 minifigures (Spider-Man, Carnage and SHIELD agent), a jumper and a SHIELD jet.
As mentioned above, Spidey is looking pretty cool in his black suit, and Carnage is fairly creepy! Because of the tentacles, it was a bit hard to make our Carnage stand properly. He is meant to attack in the air though.
The jet, like the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes The Avengers' Quinjet, is made from different sections attached together to allow the wings to be adjusted, making it more true to the movie.
Overall we think that it is a very nice set, especially when they link Spider-Man and SHIELD together! LEGO has also released another Spider-Man set - Rhino and Sandman Super Villain Team-up (RRP £44.99), featuring 4 minifigures including Spider-Man and Iron Spider. I read online that in the original Civil War story, Iron Man studied Spider-Man's suit, could he have created one for himself?! I can't wait for the next movie!
