Not only do you get a Spider-Man minifig in his classic red and blue costume, but you also get a Miles Morales minifig. This is the same character who took center stage in the film “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” and comes wearing his standard black and red costume.
Also included is a minifig of Carnage, one of the top Spider-Man villains of all time. Designed for kids six and up, the set features 235 LEGO bricks and accessories. Those bricks include everything needed to build the bike that Spider-Man rides and a scene of Carnage attacking.
With 358 bricks and accessories as well as minifigs included in the box, this LEGO set allows Black Panther fans to recreate one of the top battle scenes from the film of the same name. The Royal Talon Fighter serves both a ship and a playset in this box. Most of the included parts create the boat, which measures eight inches long and more than two inches tall when fully assembled. The exterior of the boat creates a surface that lets you attach the included minifigs too.
LEGO gives you a Black Panther minifig that shows the hero dressed in his classic black costume. You also get a Nakia minifig to give the hero some back up as he encounters the two villain minifigs of Ulysses and Killmonger. To make sure that you enjoy all the action of the flick, LEGO gives you small weapons for each one of those minifigs too.
“Avengers: Infinity War” is one of the top films of all time and one of the highest-grossing movies too. One of the top scenes from that film showed the beloved characters coming together in Wakanda to stop Thanos. You can now recreate all of that action with this LEGO set. It comes with 416 bricks, many of which fit together to form the wall outside the country that protected the heroes.
When you put the bricks together correctly, you’ll find that the wall features a section that opens and a tower with two turrets that you can spin.

Thanks to the five included minifigs, you can battle with the good guys against the bad buys. LEGO includes Vision, Black Panther and Shuri as well as an outrider and Corvus Glaive.
Captain America and Black Widow are two of the top characters from the Marvel hero films. Both of those characters are represented in this LEGO set with minifigs that resemble their looks from the Infinity War saga. This set picks up on the action as a ship dropped out of the air and an outrider attacked. Most of the included 124 pieces create the dropship, which has a cockpit that can accommodate an Infinity War element as well as the included outrider minifig.
This ship has a small shooter that releases two studs sides that fold out. Each of the two outrider minifigs has six arms that can hold weapons and other accessories. You also get a Captain America minifig that comes with two guns and a Black Widow minifig that holds batons in each hand. When you buy all the Infinity Wars LEGO sets, you can recreate the whole film and collect a full set of Infinity Stones.

The more than 200 included pieces create the Batcycle, which is the black and yellow motorcycle that Batman rides through the streets of Gotham. Some of the other pieces create the colorful cycle that Harley Quinn rides too. That cycle includes a large working hammer that she can bring down on Batman to stop him and get away.
The cycle that Batman rides includes some realistic and working weapons too, which he can use to stop Harley. Both cycles have attachment places designed for the included Batman and Harley Quinn minifigs. To help Harley on her quest, LEGO includes a Deadshot minifig too. Deadshot comes with a backpack that helps him take off and a large gun that he can fire at Batman.
During the Infinity War saga, Thor found himself floating through space and meeting up with the Guardians of the Galaxy. He later split off with Rocket Raccoon and Groot to track down the one weapon that would stop Thanos. If you loved the scenes of those three characters working together, you’ll love this LEGO set.

Fans of both Marvel flicks and the adventures of Captain America in the comic books will like this set, which lets Cap battle against the evil forces of Hydra. The 172 included bricks and accessories are suitable for kids as young as seven. They can build a tank that moves across the floor with those bricks and four wheels.

LEGO recommends the set for those who are at least six years older.
It’s almost impossible to think about “Avengers: Infinity War” without thinking about Bruce Banner in the Hulkbuster suit.

It has a small flap that lifts to place the Bruce Banner minifig inside. Also included are other minifigs from that film scene.

You also get bricks that form a gun turret you can set one of the villains on to attack Bruce Banner. This turret has space for a hidden Infinity Stone and shoots LEGO balls.
While “The Avengers” was a hot film, “Avengers vs. Ultron” was even hotter because it brought together a number of characters and had them fight together against a major villain. In this Iron Man. vs. Ultron LEGO set, you can now recreate the scene from that hit film where the hero went one on one against the bad guy. The Ultron minifig fits into the included vehicle that you build from LEGO bricks.
That vehicle can fit other minifigs from LEGO hero sets too. Suitable for ages six and up, LEGO recommends this playset for users of up to 12, but it’s a good choice for fans of the film series. In addition to the Iron Man minifig, you get accessories that work with that figure, including weapons that shoot LEGO studs and a Super Jumper that makes him fly. LEGO also gives you a removable Iron Man helmet and accessories that go with both Ultron and his vehicle.
“Batman vs. Superman” was a popular Hollywood blockbuster that showed what happened when these two heroes met for the first time. This LEGO set includes bricks and other parts that let you make a version of that scene in your home. The included Superman minifig comes dressed in his costume from the film, which uses red and blue with the yellow logo on his chest.

Batman holds both the Batarang and a bazooka that you can put together in three different ways. You can even make the bazooka fire LEGO studs at Superman. Also included are the bricks needed to build the Super Jumper, which helps Superman fly through the air. LEGO even includes bricks that let you build the iconic Bat-Signal.
