Like the second wave of DC Mighty Micros, the Marvel ones will also be released in January 2017. Let’s take a closer look at the sets.
This is probably my most anticipated Marvel Mighty Micro out of the lot. We get Iron Man and most interestingly Thanos as well! In a surprise move, LEGO have created a new custom moulded Iron Man mask, which gives off a very classic comic book look. It looks like it’s one solid piece, without the opening flap.
It’s something completely different and I’m really looking forward to seeing the part in person.
The Thanos minifigure is also a very exciting prospect as we’ve never got him in this scale before. His face – even though its in the over-the-top Mighty Micros style actually manages to look very Thanos-y so you can probably re-use him to make a proper full-sized minifig Thanos if you give him proper legs.
The gold “infinity gauntlet” accessory is also really sweet.
Wolverine is paired up with Magneto. I love the X-Men and I wish that we’d get a bit more variety other than these two characters. Wolverine looks pretty cute, but he has a promising looking face with those sweet sideburns. I really like his torso, with the very prominent X-Men logo on his belt.
Wolverine pilots a miniature Blackbird (or X-Jet) which looks quite cool.
Magneto looks really adorable, and I’m most interested in his head, which seems to be a fully black piece with eyes printed on it. His vehicle which has an oversized magnet attached to it is pretty funny too.
C’mon LEGO, I’m still waiting on a Colossus minifigure. I would’ve gladly traded Wolverine for Colossus.
Last but not least is yet another Spider-Man mighty micro. In my review of the first wave of Marvel Mighty Micros, I was less than impressed with Spider-Man’s offering, and I think I’ll feel the same way with this one. At least we get a new face with him.
His adversary, Scorpion is a nice addition, although he’s not exactly a brand new minifigure, as a full-sized version of the classic Spider-Man villain makes an appearance in 76057 Web Warriors Ultimate Bridge Battle with both sporting the new (but totally awesome) tail-piece.
The new Marvel Mighty Micros sets will be out in January 2017, and if the first wave is an indicator of their popularity, series 2 should sell quite well too.
