Just like The Lord of the Rings, another major property that fans have long desired is coming to LEGO this year: Marvel superheroes. The first 6 sets have been revealed, and they’re mostly (but not all) in support of The Avengers movie. Here we go…
Come May, these LEGO Marvel Superheroes sets will be available in stores near you. From the looks of things, LEGO is starting off with a healthy selection of Avengers movie-themed sets, along with a pair of sets that appear to be based on X-Men and Spider-Man comic books. Check it:
