This past weekend, The Boy and I sat down to build all of the new Marvel LEGO sets. I happened to take a number of pictures during the process, and shared them via my Instagram account. If you don’t follow, take the jump for a look at the Minifig versions of your favorite heroes.

Assembling Avengers! This is the first pack of five to build the Quinjet
Captain America, the first (Lego) Avenger
LEGO and Marvel have done a great job at keeping the aliens a secret. The packaging simply says, "Alien Foot Soldier"
"I have a juice box..."
"We have a Hulk..." (And a flying baby in the background)
"Hey, Dad... what if his name was really Loni, but everyone called him Loki? That would make me pretty mad," The Boy (age 4)
"Hail, Loni!"
The Quinjet has four build manuals, and five bags of parts. This completes Part One.
Safety first on the Quinjet.
Iron Man is ready for action!
"I'm soaring so high! WEEEEEE!"
"Take away the high-tech armor, and what do you have left?"
There are a lot of really cool stickers to attach to the Lego sets.
"I'm tho Thor..."
The completed Quinjet
He doesn't hold the bow correctly in the Lego set either. At least he's consistently wrong.
A cool sticker from the Hulk's Helicarrier Breakout set.
Avengers vs. X-Men vs. LEGO (AVX: LEGO)
Still don't know why or how Deadpool made the cut to get into the first wave of the Marvel Lego line. Still, it gave me a chance to insert a gag in the above image.
It hasn't shown up on the LEGO website or in any press releases I've seen, so consider this your first look at the Ultimate Spider-Man Lego line.
The remains of the day...

Overall, the Lego sets are really nice (though a tad expensive) and I know The Boy is going to have hours of fun playing with these sets.

    Listening to you talk about these in the podcast I was confused for a moment at one point.

    You said that there was a “throne” type vehicle and for some reason my head heard it as “thrown” type vehicle. For a few seconds, I sat there thinking, “Why the heck would you throw a Lego vehicle?” Yeah, that’s how my brain works.

    I really like the look of the Hulk and Iron Man figs, but looking at them all makes me wonder why they just painted Cap’s helmet onto the figure’s head. Everyone else gets external helmets or hair, but Cap’s is just part of the head. Seems like he got the short end of the stick there.

    Wow, I mean, I had some neat lego sets as a kid but NOTHING on the same order as those. Way cool!

    Any idea what the MSRP is in these?

      Yup. I do have an idea… they range in price from $12.99 to $69.99. We covered the prices on these on the most recent Major Spoilers Podcast. You should give it a listen, it’s a great enhancement to the website.
