A New Lego Set Reveals Spider-Man and Venom Don't Need to Be Jealous of Tony Stark's Hulkbuster Mech

By Andrew Liszewski on at

As one of the few superheroes without any powers, Tony Stark instead brings some impressive toys to battle – including the towering Hulkbuster armour – that must make other heroes jealous. But as Gizmodo can exclusively reveal today, in Lego’s new set, Spider-Man and Venom have no reason to envy Stark, as the two will soon go toe-to-toe in their very own giant mechs.

The new 604-piece set will be on display at Lego’s booth at San Diego Comic-Con this week, but it won’t actually go on sale until later this year, on December 1. There's no UK price announced just yet, but it's set to be $50 in the US.

That’s a bit of a bummer, as no collector likes having to wait to expand their hoard, but in addition to minifigure versions of Spider-Man and Venom piloting their articulated giant robots, the set also comes with minifigure versions of Ghost Spider (aka Spider-Gwen) with her hoverboard, and Aunt May trying to de-escalate everyone with a tasty ice cream cone. I’m glad I’m not the one who has to choose between an epic giant mech battle and free ice cream. [Lego]
