If you already thought 1st June was going to be an expensive day for your LEGO habit, it’s just got even more expensive. Information has just dropped of LEGO Daily Bugle, the tallest Marvel set ever released, towering at a whopping 82cm. And with a price tag of £274.99, this isn’t a build to be sniffed at – but it’s surely an exciting prospect for any Spider-Man fans.
The Daily Bugle is, of course, the famous newspaper from the Spider-Man franchise. Run by editor J. Jonah Jameson, it’s also the workplace of Peter Parker and the newspaper that frequently captures pictures of Spider-Man in action. The LEGO version is three storeys tall, with offices within, and plenty of detail on the exterior, too.
Despite being an 18+ set designed for adults, this is a modular building, meaning floors and walls can be removed to reveal the details inside. Which, let’s face it, is only useful if you intend to play with the set. And why wouldn’t you want to play with this – even if you are an adult?
It also comes with an incredible 25 minifigures, five of which are exclusive to LEGO Daily Bugle. They are: Fire Star, Blade, Doctor Octopus, Spider-Man, J. Jonah Jameson, Betty brant, Venom, Miles Morales, Spider-Ham, Green Goblin, Gwen Stacy, Carnage, Punisher, Peter Parker, Spider-Gwen, Black Cat, Robbie Robertson, Ben Urich, Mysterio, Daredevil, Sandman, Aunt May, newspaper worker, New York taxi driver, and receptionist.
LEGO Daily Bugle is made up of 3,772 pieces and will cost £274.99. It’s available as soon as next week – if you’re a VIP member, you can buy it from 26th May. Everyone else doesn’t have to wait much longer though; it’ll be available on general release from 1st June, exclusive to LEGO stores and LEGO.com.
