We also reviewed the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes – we like our Super Heroes in this house! This is an extract from the press release to explain them.
LEGO® and Marvel join forces this summer to bring you the super hero team-up of a lifetime. To celebrate the hugely anticipated movie release of Marvel Avengers ASSEMBLE, LEGO® is launching an action packed range ready to save the world from destruction!
We got sent Loki’s™ Cosmic Cube Escape (6867) Loki is escaping from S.H.I.E.L.D. headquarters with the powerful cosmic cube. If he succeeds, he could use it to wreak havoc on the world! Can Iron Man take to the skies in his amazing armoured suit and chase down the speeding off-roader or will Loki escape with the cosmic cube? You decide! Includes 3 minifigures: Iron Man, Loki and Hawkeye.
Again the figures and detail are superb, the little figures really do look like who they are supposed to.Iron Man even has his goatee beard! We have honestly played with these loads and even combined them, so we had Batman and Iron Man fighting the bad guys together! This set has an RRP of £19.99 and with the quality of the figures and the vehicle it is in my opinion worth every penny. The LEGO Marvel Super Heroes also have the full range of characters and playsets, so once again you can collect them all. The Hulk, Captain America, Wolverine, Spiderman, to name but a few. They too have buildable figures. To see the entire collection go here.
Even though I have girls, they are so into LEGO and these little figures, that I honestly believe girls would enjoy these as much as boys. My daughter knows who a few of the tv Super Heroes are and she has charged around our house with a cape on being a Super Hero on several occasions, so to get to play with “real” Super Heroes delighted her. They have provided her with hours of fun. I have laughed outside the door listening to her putting on voices and letting her imagination take over.
My personal opinion again is that these Marvel Super Heroes are fantastic, the attention to detail once again is incredible. They are tons of fun and we will without a doubt be adding these to our ever-growing LEGO collection.
