The LEGO 2022 set reveals continue into December, and today, we get a glimpse of these new Spidey and his Amazing Friends sets thanks to German Retailer JB Spielwaren. Special thanks to Ashnflash for the heads up!
The new Spidey & His Amazing Friends sets should be released on 1 January 2022.
These sets are based off the animated Spidey & His Amazing Friends TV series, which debuted in August 2021, and as you can tell from the box art, fall under the LEGO 4+ (used to be called Juniors) theme, so don’t expect highly detailed builds here.
Despite being aimed at young builders, the sets features an exciting lineup of minifigures, including fan-favourites such as Rhino, Ghost Spider, and most excitingly Doc Ock, who is a female in the series.
There isn’t global pricing yet, but I’ll update the below once we get pricing in the US, Australia and UK.
- 10781 Spider-man’s Techno Trike – €8.49
- 10782 Hulk vs Rhino Truck Showdown – €16.99
- 10783 Spider-man at Doc Ock’s Lab – €25.49
- 10784 Spider-Man Webquarters Hangout – €42.49
10781 Spider-man’s Techno Trike
The smallest set in the wave is notable because it’s an easy and affordable way to get your hands on a new Miles Morales Spider-Man as well as a cartoony Green Goblin, complete with Pumpkin Bombs!
Printed elements are aplenty, and the red webbing is also quite neat – a small, playable set that’s perfect for Junior builders.
10782 Hulk vs Rhino Truck Showdown
10782 Hulk vs Rhino Truck Showdown is the next set, featuring vehicles for both The Hulk and classic Spidey villain Rhino, as they go head to head. Spider-man doesn’t get a vehicle (shockingly), but has to make do with a small jetpack.
These remind me of Juniorised Mighty Micros, but this set is notable because it finally gives us a comic-accurate Rhino minifigure, complete with armour that has a horn on his head.
It’s really perfect, and the addition of a minifigure Hulk with dual-moulded legs is a nice little bonus.
10783 Spider-man at Doc Ock’s Lab
10783 Spider-man at Doc Ock’s Lab gives us a location-based sets with a very exciting line-up of minifigures, specifically Ghost Spider (aka Ghost Spider/Gwen Stacy), and a gender-reversed Doc Ock, consistent with her portrayal in the animated series.
Unfortunately, this isn’t quite Liv Octavius from Into The Spider-verse, but it’s pretty close!
10784 Spider-Man Webquarters Hangout
Last but not least is the largest set in the wave – 10784 Spider-Man Webquarters Hangout, which provides a fun Spider-base for Spider-Man and his amazing friends.
You get vehicles for Ghost Spider, and Green Goblin, and the set most notably comes with 5 minifigures – Spider-man, Green Goblin, Ghost Spider, Miles Morales and Kamala Khan (aka Ms Marvel), the latter of which is exclusive to this set.
There’s a lot of playability and fun accessories included here, so it should be a fun set for younger kids, while us older fans can no doubt appreciate the rich cast of minifigures. I like that it includes the 3 main Spidey characters in the set, so budget permitting, this set would be a good one to build your collection around.

I disagree with the choice to have Miles Morales’ and Doc Ock’s legs based on their boots rather than their legs. That makes it look like pants rather than a coherent suit…
Nevertheless, I might buy a few of the minifigs and parts separately…
