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]
