New Spider-man set is the tallest Lego Marvel set to date and features iconic newspaper building as well as 25 minifigures.
The Lego Group has revealed its new Daily Bugle set: an intricate version of the iconic newspaper building, complete with editor, J. Jonah Jameson’s, and Peter Parker’s offices. Designed for grown-ups, it is the tallest Lego Marvel set to date, standing at 82cm tall and featuring 3,772 pieces.
The Daily Bugle offices first featured in The Amazing Spider-Man comic series over 50 years ago in 1963. Workplace of Peter Parker, Ben Urich, Robbie Robertson, J. Jonah Jameson and Betty Brant, this is the location where that the iconic phrase ‘Get me pictures of Spider-Man!’ was first uttered.
The Lego Daily Bugle is incredibly detailed both inside and out, with three floors, the front street and the back alley, and the whole set is also modular, meaning walls and floors can be moved to get to the action within.
Within the building there are several famous settings from the various universes, including the ground floor entrance that can be destroyed to look like an explosion has taken place and the newsroom on the first floor complete with office furniture as well as much needed donuts and other treats.
On the second floor, the villainous Green Goblin can be seen smashing a window to get to Peter Parker’s office where his camera lies waiting for the next story. The top floor also features both Betty Brant and J. Jonah Jameson’s offices.
The set includes a huge cast of 25 minifigures, featuring Spider-man alongside his most famous friends and foes, such as Gwen Stacy, Venom, Mysterio, and Doctor Octopus, plus new exclusive minifigures including Daredevil and Blade.
Mark John Stafford, Lego Set Designer commented: “I was seven years old when I was given my first Spider-man comic and I have always had an image of creating a Lego model of the Daily Bugle and having Spidey and his Amazing Friends in conflict with his various enemies.”
The Lego Daily Bugle set is available from 1st June, 2021.
