LEGO Spider-Man (Marvel Cinematic Universe)

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

With Spider-Man: No Way Home dominating the box office worldwide, it's no better time than now to kick off the new year with a Brickology Episode about the MCU version of the web-slinger! LegoLee goes through the strange catalog of sets based on Peter Parker's appearances in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in this episode. 

Good morning, good afternoon, good evening, whenever, wherever you are listening. Thank you so much for making me a part of your day. My name is Lee Palmy. Might know me as Lego Lee or Lego Lee three to nine from facebook, instagram, twitter, youtube, page, trenning, name it. I'm all over the Internet and this is the brick Ology podcast, the study of small plastic bricks. How are you doing today? I sincerely hope you're having an absolutely fantastic day and I honestly I hate I had to say us again, but I hope you're healthy. COVID is rampaging once again. I was actually at a wedding this past weekend and I think I know at least seven people now from that wedding who got covid and I was in close contact with all of them. Your boy over here completely asymptomatic, which is kind of wild. I feel like I should have covid and honestly I might, but I did get the booster shot and I currently have no symptoms, but I have to go somewhere next weekend, so I will get a covid test before then. But thank you, guys so much for joining me again here on brick ology and yeah, it's been a little bit since the last episode. Honestly, I think I was doing a very solid job up towards the end of two thousand and twenty one with pumping out consistent content, but then spider man happened, I went home for Christmas, the holidays happened, I had a crazy celebration. Like I said, I was at one of my best friend's wedding. I was in his wedding over New Year's, so that was a big party time. So I have been very busy the past few weeks and I really had any time to sit down and record an episode of Brick Ology. But we back. Brick Ology is back and I am stoked for the New Year. I'm going to fulfill my promise. I'm still doing the episode that I said I was going to do in the last episode, that I've been kind of hinting at for the past few episodes of this show, and then after that it's a free for all. The schedule was going to be kind of up in the air and honestly, I'm stoked about that. I'm very excited for the future of this podcast and hopefully I sound a little bit better than I normally do. That's because I got a new microphone. I finally sucked it up and got a brand new mic set up. I also have a new monitor set up. So this week's episode of Brick Ology I'm going to try once again doing kind of the more informal Ad Lib Style of episode. A few episodes back I tried that with the Harry Potter Twenty Anniversary and I thought it was a decent recording, but not my favorite in the world. However, I was literally recording that episode on my Cell Phone and additionally I was also recording that episode in my closet with just my laptop. Now I have my laptop, I have a second monitor and I have a different microphone. So hopefully, now that I had this more professional podcasting set up, the AD libbing can be a little bit easier because I have some basic notes on one screen and then the other screen, the big screen, I have the pictures of the set themselves. I can see all of the statistics and data I need to see. So hopefully that improves. The one issue is I am recording now in my actual bedroom as opposed to my closet, so the sound proving isn't quite as good and my cat is just running around page and keeps body my legs. So if you ever hear me screen just a little bit, it's probably because Yoshi, my adorable little amazing cat. I love Yoshi, but sometimes you get a little bit too frisky around my legs while I'm sitting at this desk. So all of those things being addressed, welcome back to brick ology. I'm super excited to have you back, and happy New Year. Obviously a little bit late, but it is two thousand and twenty two and I am stoked for what this year can bring in Lego, for this podcast and for my various...

...social channels. Now, before we get started with today's episode, of course I need to shamelessly plug myself. Go find me online on facebook, instagram, twitter, Youtube, Patreon, you name it. I have other podcasts as well, the very mally muppet show and the are you not podcast. Go check those out and also, if you are Stru reaming this podcast, hit me with the follow on spotify or subscribe and Apple podcasts. And normally this is the part of the show where I say you lucky people, and apple podcast can rate the podcast out of five stars, but now that's a feature on spotify. Yes, spotify has added a review feature for podcast which is awesome. So if you're listening on spotify, please give the show the rating you see fit. You can't write a review. You can actually still write a review on apple podcast. They still have a slight advantage over spotify, but I love you guys. Gave me some feedback on s spotify as well. That would mean the world to me. All right, announcements out of the way. The New Year has begun and it's New Year. Knew me, but it's still an episode that's very topical to something that happen at the end of two thousand and twenty one, and that, of course, is spider man. So let's transition and start talking about Lego spider man, but specifically spider man from the marvel cinematic universe. So before I get into the Lego mcu spider man sets, I need to give some context to the mcu spider man, which of course means given context, you just the history of spider man on film in general. Now there's a ton of stuff going on with spider man's history. The character has existed for is it the sixty anniversary this year? I think it might be. I believe spider man might have stared in one thousand nine hundred and sixty two, and it's not two thousand and twenty two, which would make the character or spider man sixty years old, which is absolutely crazy. Obviously this is going to be the twenty anniversary this May of the original spider man film. Now, if you want to hear me talk about the Rami Spider man trilogy and specifically the Lego sets based off the Ramy Spider man trilogy, well, two thirds of children they didn't make any sets for spider man. Three, listen to the last episode of Brick Ology, which has become quickly one of my most streaked episodes of all time. I was very happy with the popularity of that episode and I think it's a fun episode in general. Now I would have loved to make an episode about Lego sets from the amazing spider man film series that started in two thousand and twelve and also had a film in two thousand and fourteen, and technically Lego did make some stuff for the amazing spider man. There was a comic Con Amazing Spider Man to costume exclusive figure and then toys r us had this electro poly bag that pretty much anybody could get back in the day, but that was pretty much it for the amazing spider man. Otherwise, Lego really did not touch that series. I don't think those things warrant their own episode of Brick Ology. So we're skipping the amazing spider man and jumping into the mcu spider man. But before we talk about the Lego sets, let's kind of talk about how spider man ended up in the mcu. Now, obviously, like I said, spider man's want to turn six, two years old, one of the most all time popular comic book characters of all time. He honestly might be third as what I honestly this point might be number one, but kind of all time. In the Pantheon of all complic characters, I feel like Superman and Batman are probably considered the top two. But as for Marvel Comics, spider man is deaf number one and he might be number three over all. He is an insanely popular character. Everybody Love Spider Man. Everybody can relate to spider man. I Love Spider Man. I wore spider man costume to the spider man no way home premiere, a few weeks ago. I mean spider man means a lot to a lot of people. However, marvel in the late s for a various number of reasons,...

...a lot of it being the comic book bubble that burst in the s. But they were struggling, just needless to say, marvel as a company was really struggling and they sold the rights of their characters to big studios. So, for example, they sold the rights to the xmen to Fox, same thing with daredevil and fantastic, for those went to Fox. They sold the rights of the character hulk to universal, which actually universal still owns the rights to the incredible hulk. And then, probably the most notable one is they sold the rights of the character spider man to Sony for what, I believe the number is is seven million dollars. That seems so low, but that's what happened. Marvel sold the rights of the character to Sony and then Sony, of course, made the Sam Rami Spider man trilogy. One thing in the contract with marvel and Sony is they have to make a spider man movie once every five years or the rights would reverse back to marvel, which is exactly why, five years after the Rami trilogy ended, Sony went ahead and had to make another spiderman movie, the amazing spider man, to keep the rights to their beloved character. But the amazing spider man series, while it did fine at the box office, it didn't do the game busters kind of numbers that the Sam Rami Spider man trilogy did and honestly, because of all the marketing costs that went into the amazing spider man to that movie might have actually potentially lost Sony some money. Even though it made like seven hundred million something dollars. It was kind of considered a box office disappointment because they spent so much Dang money on the movie it was hard for them to recoup all that they had spent on the film. and Sony was kind of panicking because they were planning this spider man cinematic universe. They could do all these siniature six movies, a black cat movie, there's even an aunt may movie at one point which was rumored, which was kind of ridiculous. But what ended up happening is Sony cut a deal with Marvel Studios, which is of course owned by Disney, to incorporate spider man and into the mcu. Now they do not sell the rights of the character back to marvel or to Disney. They basically could a deal where it's like, all right, you can use spider man in Marvel Cinemac Universe movies and then we'll make new spider man movies that are in the mcu. They will be funded by Sony but made by Marvel Studios, and we're going to split the profits. I believe Sony gets seventy five percent of the gross they do get, and then Disney Marvel studios gets the other twenty five percent. Sony also distributes the movies. Of they're in charge of marketing again, the trailers and all that jazz, and that is how spider man ended up in the mceu. Now his future in the mcu was kind of up in the air. Of A lead. The contract is over, but based on the amount of money the spider man no way home has made, I would imagine they're probably going to make more mcu spider man movies because they are just so freaking successful. But that is how spider man ended up in the mcu. He was first announced to be joining the mcu into thousand and fifteen with his first appearance in the mcu, of course, and Captain America Civil War in two thousand and sixteen. Now, for today's episode of Brick Oology, I'm only talking about the Lego spider man mcu sets. Technically speaking, the character has appeared in other marvel sub themes that aren't special, typically spider man, for example. Actually, the first time we got a spider man figure from the mcu in Lego form was with a set based off catch America civil war. We also got spider man and his iron spider costume and completely exclusive figure in the Infinity War wave in two...

...thousand and eighteen with the big sanctum sanctorum. So that was like one hundred dollars. So spider man has appeared in Non Spider Man centric movie base sets, but for today's episode we're only going to talk about the spider man movie sets themselves. Got It. I think it's fairly simple. But let's move on and talk about these sets now. So first up, of course, the first movie in the new spider man trilogy from Disney and from Marvel and from Sony was spider man homecoming in two thousand and seventeen. At first I thought that name was so stupid. Now I kind of love the name and I love this is like the home trilogy and every movie has the word home in it to some extent, in some different way, which is really fun and honestly, that movie, I really think, is a very, very good movie compared to the other ones that in some ways it might be the worst. I kind of flip between homecoming and far from home and which one is better. But overall it's a very solid movie and Lego made two sets from this movie when it first came out. So leg it was extremely inconsistent with a number of sets each marvel property gets. It honestly doesn't really make a whole lot of sits. I touched base on this in my episode about eternals, where eternals got four sets, literally four different sets. Would seemed like overkill for that movie. Meanwhile black widow got some random, you know, promotional set of the main set and only got one set. Doctor Strange in the multiverse of madness, one singular set, and then Shaung Chi gets two sets, and I feel like I can guarantee it after strangers probably going to be a little bit of a bigger movie than Hung Chi, much as I love Shung Chi. That wasn't the biggest marvel movie to come out here recently. So it's very confusing and I do not really know why Lego does this, but they made two sets for spider man homecoming back in two thousand and seventeen. The first set was a twenty dollar set that contained one hundred and eighty five pieces and they is called the ATM Heist Battle. This was actually a feature prominently in the trailers for the movie. So you do this. That was accurate right out the gate. And this said, of course includes the figures of spider man in his mcu attire and you get to thug spider man, of course, was not exclusive to this set. He came and the other set that this was the cheapest way at the time to get this spider man figure. The thugs, though, we're completely exclusive. They had generic torsos, generic hair pieces, generic legs, but their face prints, which is to the movie, are these kind of cheap halloween mask versions of avengers heroes. So in the movie kind of the four core avengers, so iron man, for Hulk and cats in America, are all featured this tete on. They comes with two figures. You get Captain America and you get the hulk as the masks for these robber characters and honestly it's really fun exclusive characters. Now it would have been cool to actually get like a more important character from the movie besides these two, but it is accurate to this scene, so I completely understand why Lego included them here. They also had some interesting accessories, including this kind of strange chatari alien weapon gun that is a big pivotal plot point within the film, which is very cool. As for the build of the set, it's called the ATM Heist and you actually get a somewhat mostly enclosed little bank now, and the movie this bank is kind of on the corner of a street block. The LEGO bill doesn't quite accurately get that shape. For the most part it's closed up and it can swing open. It has the ATMs on the inside. You can rip the ATMs out of the wall like in the movie. Does not have a roof, which is kind of weird. But besides that it honestly is a decent small little build for a twenty dollar set. So overall I think this is...

...a pretty good twenty dollar set that actually mostly accurately represents a scene from the film. So, all that being said, I think this set is pretty solid. I'm actually pretty impressed with it. The one other set from spider man homecoming that came out in two thousand and seventeen was called beware the vulture. The name of this set pretty stupid, really strange name, but it was a forty dollar set with three hundred and seventy five pieces and it included for mini figures, three of which are completely exclusive. The one not exclusive figure, of course, is the mcu spider man, which side note. They did a really good job with the spider man's figures in these spider man sets. They have arm printing, they have dual more legs, all the details are very well done, so Bravo Lego on that. This set also included iron man, which it was a completely exclusive version of iron man. He looked very cool with this armor, kind of the bottom half being silver and he actually had kind of a blank head underneath, which was an accurate detail to the movie, because Tony Stark was not actually in the iron man suit during this scene. He was pilot to get remotely. So that it is kind of a fun thing Lego included and then you also got two of the main villains of the movie. You got the Shocker, who was one of the main Hinchman from the movie. The Shaker figure actually looks pretty good and they gave him some unnecessary but nicely included arm printing, which was very cool. And then they use, I believe, a cheema kind of fist piece as his gauntlet. Not The best part choice in the world, but it works for what we got from the film. And then we also get the vulture figure. Now we had gotten vulture from comic spider man sets in the past. This was our first MSU version of the vulture and, admittedly, especially when you compare to the remake of this character they did actually this past year, it doesn't look great. The helmet mold they use is that how mold of actually using a lot of iron man comic figures? It's all printed and it looks mediocre. His jacket is not the accurate color. I don't love the look of this vulture figure and they reuse the comic face print for this figure, which doesn't really look like Michael Keaton. So not a big fan of this vulture figure. But of course he also has his wings, which or ginormous and brick built. Used a lot of next one night shield pieces. They're way too big, their way too heavy. They have good articulation and I like the kind of design and esthetic of them, but overall I just think this vulture figure, especially compared to the new version, which is much improved, wasn't all that great. Now, obviously lego might have gotten some faulty concept art or something. I'm not entirely sure what happened behind the scenes with the design of this figure, but from my perspective it's not the best build ever. As for the main built of the set, you get a van truck thing. I believe in the movie it's very clearly a van. It looks more like a truck and this set it's not a half bad design like it fits in with Lego city. Holds a kind of scuff marks and web stickers on them, but if you want to put it into a Lego city you could easily leave those stickers off. It fits a mini figure. And then the back actually has a decent amount of room and there is a six stubb shooter that can come out the top by folding down the backsides. That's not an accurate detail. Of the movie, but I understand it for a playability's sake. But overall this kind of represents a scene from the movie. There is a scene in the movie we're spider man chases a van with the shocker in it and then the vulture kind of apprehends them and then iron man being piled a remotely save the day. However, on...

...the box art for this set it looks like this scene is taking place on like a mountain side road and I believe in the movie it takes place in like a suburb of New York, like a little neighborhood. So not exactly completely accurate, but it's not the least accurate set I've ever seen. Marvel sets are all over the place in terms of accuracy and sometimes you get one like this. We're like sixty percent of the set is accurate. The other set, the smaller set, definitely has the less interesting figure and character selection but is a better representation of the scene from the movie. But overall, not the best sets in the world. They're both pretty small and I think they could have been better. However, they did make a new set for this movie, kind of, but I'm not going to talk about it until I talk about the spider man no way home sets. It's confusing. Just bear with me, I'll get to it. But now let's move on and talk about the sets from spider man far from home, which actually, oddly enough, now has six different sets. Three sets from the original wave, and accessory pack that came out a little bit later, a polybag and then a junior set that came out last year. Let's talk about the initial wave, from two thousand and nineteen. The first set from the first wave of spider man far from home sets is called the molten man battle. It had two hundred and ninety four pieces and it retailed for thirty dollars. This set include the figure of Spider Man in his night monkey outfit, his kind of spider man stealth suit that is black and gray, and I think Lego did a pretty solid job of recreating that suit in Lego minifigure form. It's completely exclusive to this set. Will probably never see that suit again. It's probably my least favorite mcu spider man suit. It's not the coolest looking one, but the Lego figure was pretty well done. Also included here you got a firefighter which had a nice face print but otherwise just generic Lego city printing, which honestly only remember. There was a firefighter in this scene and it makes sense because its multen man, so kind of a random figure inclusion. And then finally you get Mysterio, the main, spoiler alert, but you probably would have seen this movie by now, main bad guy of spider man far from home. Mysterio had a great fishbowl piece, a nice color for his Cape, good printing. The colors were entirely accurate and they actually do fix that a couple years later. But this mysterio figure was very easy to get in this initial way, which is kind of odd, as with the build here. It is multen man, and look, Multa man is in the movie. However, he doesn't look anything like this. I don't know legos design a multen man. This design of Multen man is very reminiscent of kind of the rock monsters from power miners and it actually uses a lot of the same pieces from that. Has Good articulation, using some bald joints and whatnot, and I don't hate this design. It's just not entirely accurate. They use the CCBS star wars shoulder piece with a print for its face, which looks kind of Jenky if you ask me. It has like a street sign with a stoplight coming out of it, part of a car coming out of it, lots stuff going on. The use some pieces as like dripping multen love. It all just looks interesting to me and I like this build when I got it, because I got it before the movie and then I saw the movie and I was like, Dang, this really isn't all that accurate to what's in the film. So overall, not the best design in the world, it is going for something that's in the movie. So again it's their one. That's like sixty percent accurate to the film, but not all that great. So that is the smallest set from the way. The next...

...set, which was a forty dollar set with four hundred and seventy one pieces, so a fantastic priced apart ratio, is hydro man attack. This scene actually takes place before the multed man scene and this set is fabulous. I love this set. The build of this set here is basically a piece of Venice, but the figures included here. One you get Mysterio, exact same version. The other three figures are completely exclusive. You get spider man, but he's wearing a hoodie with the spider man suit underneath it, slightly unset at the top. He has a Peter Parker face print and a Peter Parker hair piece and he also includes the basically the piece they used for a beanie with the spider man eyes printed on, so like his mask is halfway up his face. That's so cool. I love that. That is a fantastic stick detail. Also, MJ finally gets a figure in this set. Very generic figure. Think the MJ figure we got with no way home is slightly better, but it was really nice to get hurt in this set. You also get hydroman in this set, who it's kind of weird looking, but they really built this interesting design to make him bigger with a lot of transparent blue pieces and I think overall it looks pretty interesting. So good looking figures for this set and allot of them are exclusive this set as well. But the build here. It's basically a small version of the Rialto Bridge from Venis. You can a small little Gondola boat that looks very cute. You get a little cafe off to the side with a small little table, the Coffee Cup and a newspaper and a little bell tower with some spider webs and good little details. There are also places all over this set where you can put wet pieces or studs that have spider man on the side of a wall, which is all very cool. There is a feature with the small little coffee table off to the side we can push a button and make things go flying, which is Super Fun. As for the bridge itself, it looks really good and, of course, like in the movie, there is a feature to blow the thing up, which is really fun. It's a nicely size build. It looks pretty accurate to just veness and general which is cool to see, and it has good action play features as well and is incredibly accurate to the movie. This is about as good as it gets for a decent size lego marvel superheroes set. I think this set is honestly pretty brilliant. The next set from this line is a seventy set and the only set in this entire episode that I don't own, and that is the stark jet and drone attack. Seventy Bucks. Like I said, five hundred and four pieces, so not a good price apart ratio. How are the figures, though? Spider man and his generic suit from the last wave, so not interesting. There Mysterio, a new figure but came in two cheaper sets. Not Interesting. There Nick Fury, the same version that came and non specific mcu set. So not really accurate, not a great figure. And then happy Hogan. John fabers cut your happy Hogan, the only time we've ever gotten happy Hogan and Lego set, and it's not accurate at all. It literally looks nothing like him. He has a goatee in these movies and the Lego figure just has a generic face round. No, got horrible figure, complete waste and utter disgrace of a minifigure. Those are the figures included with this set. There does not accurate at all. But you also get two of the drones mysteria uses. They're shaping this good, but the drones are in black and they're very clearly white in the movie. So the drones aren't accurate. Now the stark jet itself is actually decently accurate. The build here doesn't look half bad. It has a nice printed cockpit piece. However, the...

...window pieces are just stickers and they look very awkward. They're not even stickers on transparent pieces. There's stickers on opaque pieces, which make them look even worse. The Interior was fine. You could fit the minifigures, there is a bomb dropping play feature and some storage towards the back, and it has a fairly accurate design. But the set was horribly overpriced. It came with very inaccurate and ugly figures and overall, there's really no reason to actually buy this set. I don't love the playing enough to spend this much money on an otherwise pretty crappy set. So it's actually the only set from this line that I don't personally own, which I find very interesting. Now there are some additional sets from spider man far from home that have come out in the preceding years, into those a nineteen. They made basically a set called the spider man and the museum break in accessory pack this and included three minifigures. It came with a drone, which wasn't accurate all. I'll get out of the way again. The drone is black and looks nothing like the drones from the movie. Not even accurate shaping wise. So a bad drone figure. But you get spider man in this set, not in the accurate suit. He wears the black and red suit during this scene. This spider man figure is just the black and blue suit from the last ways, but he actually came with an alternate face print where his face is actually slightly pulled up. The mask is suddy pulled up over his mouth and it looks like he's chewing. And it comes with the piece of pizza. Not really sure why they decide to make this, but I'm not complaining about getting slightly different variations on spider man's mask print, so that is very cool. Also included here you get Maria Hill, her first appearance in a long time in a lego marble superheroes set. All of her pieces and prints are completely generic. You could have built this figure from other sets, but whatever, it's not the end of the world. And definitely the most exciting exclusive character here is ned leads. Actually, the only ned leads figure we have ever gotten was he come be Hobgoblin from the Comic Book Sets for Ned leads from the mcu. This is his only appearance. He looks great. The youth the Professor Flitwick hair form with the middle part. That looks great. His torso print is fairly generic, but for the most part I think this is a pretty fantastic looking ned figure. The rest of the builds here small museum displays. Not much going on, but not a half bad accessory pack. And then a couple years later we got another set from this movie in the spider man no way home wave. So it had no way home packaging. But it's said based off the scenes from spider man far from home, and it is a very obvious scene. But this is a four plus set. So this set is basically called mysterios drone attack. It comes with a drone finally, in white. However, the drone is four plus, so it has a disc launcher and is very chunky and blocky. Not a very good looking build. It also comes with a generic car for Nick Fury. Again a pretty ugly build, nothing to write home about, for plus builds just aren't good in general. However, the figures here are pretty amazing. You get nick fury. Now, the Nick Fury included here is the same one from that jet set, so not entirely accurate. I wish Lego would make more mcu specific nick fury figures, but I'll digress about that. You also get Mysterio here, who's been redesigned. His fishball head has been recolor kind of a sparkly glitter blue color that looks fantastic, and the printing for his torso and legs and the colors had been changed from dark green to just gold and more pink, and I think it looks amazing. They did a great job with this update on mysterio. And then finally we got the upgraded spider man suit, the...

...black and red one from this movie, my personal favorite spider man suit maybe ever. I love the look of this suit. I have the hot toy figure of this suit. I think it looks brilliant and it was great to finally get it in Lego minifigure form in this set. So a twenty dollar junior set with only seventy three pieces, so a terrible value, but honestly it was worth it to me just to get those two figures. And then in two Tho twenty two they made a polybag based off spider man far from home, called Spider Man Bridge Battle. Everyone thought this set would actually be based off of the bridge battle between spider man and DOC OC and no way home, and then people are really led down to find out it was the bridge battle from Tower Bridge in far from home and it does come with the same exact spider man figure holding a tower bridge sticker on a two by three tile. That looks pretty cool, and then it comes with a pretty nice design for a mysterio drone that has the new stud shooters on there as well, with some additional sticker details. So actually, honestly, for a poly bad it's a really solid set. I think people just got some false hope this would be the doct bridge battle from spider man no way home. But speaking of spider man no way home, let's talk about the Lego sets based off no way home. So they made this no way home packaging that looks amazing with the new no way home suit that is the black and the red but also has the gold details on it. They made a great looking packaging box art for this film. But then they included that aforementioned far from home for plus set under that packaging with the small logo that says based off the events from spider man far from home. And then there's another twenty dollar set that says based on the events from spider man homecoming. And the reason I've waited on telling you about this set is because it comes with a figure that's very clearly based off spider man no way home, and then a bill. That's just complete nonsense. But then the villain from spider man homecoming. This set is so confusing. It's called Spider Man's drone duel. It's a tween dollar set, when hundred ninety eight pieces almost a perfect price to part ratio. And this set comes with spider man in the black and gold suit as seen in spider man no way home. Now the black and gold suit is actually just the red and black suit, but inside out, which I found very interesting that lego decide to make an entire figure of that and that's actually how the suit was in the movie. But it also kind of explains what this suit looks like. It has wires and stuff all over it because it's exactly what it was in the film and it's a highly detailed and very cool looking figure. And all of his wedding comes in gold, which makes no sense. That does not happen in the movie. So that is rather confusing. But you also in this set get the vulture, a updated version of the vulture who has a way more accurate looking torso print, a great face print using the new kind of breathing apparatus pieces that interduce with city a couple of years ago for his head and he has a double set of face that they revealed Michael Keaton face that looks really, really good. His wings are still a little too large, but they slim them down just a bit and then look a little bit less ridiculous and overall this version of the vulture, in my opinion, is a big improvement from the last version, so that was great to see. The main build of this set is a black and gold spider man drone helicopter thing, which it's called a drone, but then...

...spider man can pilot it, which is weird, and then deploys small spider drones. It's got four propellers and it's black and gold and themed with his new suit. This obviously doesn't exist in the film. I have no idea why Lego made this the build. It's something that completely made up. It wouldn't have even been a good build if it were a comic base set. We're LEGO has more liberty to make stuff up. This set is not very good, but luckily it's only twenty dollars and it came with such amazing figures that I didn't care that much, but it's definitely not based off anything in particular, at least to my knowledge, and it's a very strange looking set. So kind of a waste of a set. I think if they were going to Redo a homecoming set, I would have liked for them to have make it a little bit more accurate. I don't know, it's very, very strange, but that is when the sets included in the no way home sub theme, but is actually based off spider man homecoming, really confusing stuff from Lego. They definitely made it way more complicated they didn't needed to be. But now we can talk about finally, the spider man no way home set, the biggest marvel movie ever besides avengers in game. Literally got one set. Now I know why I only got one set in particular, it's because spoilers. They're trying to avoid spoilers and I do think that we're going to get more stuff from this movie. Maybe this year, I don't know, but I have a feeling they're going to do more stuff from this film because they didn't want to spoil anything. Sony wasn't revealing anything and that's completely fair and I understand why, and I'm not going to spoil it in this episode, but I will talk about if this set is accurate to the movie or not. But that's not really a spoiler to the film. I do think they're going to revisit this and I do think we're going to get some better spider man no way home content from Lego at some point in time. It took avengers in game a couple of years to actually have accurate Lego sets, but now we finally do and I have faith like it will come through with this movie as well and give us some awesome content that is accurate to the film. But as for the one set we did get, it's called spider man at the sanctum workshop. It has three hundred and fifty five pieces. It's a forty dollar set. They love that forty price point for these mcu spider man waves. Each wave actually had a forty dollar set, and this it includes the figures of spider man and what is now called his integrated suit, which is very cool and accurate figure to the movie, really good looking version of spider man. I love that particular suit. You also get Mj here, who has a nice hairpiece. Overall Generic Torso Prinson everything, but I think the face and hair sell the character for me. You also get doctor strange here, a really good version of Dr Strange, who introduced a brand new Cape piece for his Cape. Before his Cape was cloth pieces. Now his Cape has been made with plastic and it slips around his neck. It's a very cool looking piece. I really do like that. And finally, you get long in this set. Long is hardly in the movie. He basically has a small cameo appearance, but this version of long here is simple. The wearing basically a jacket to represent kind of how cold it is in their house in the movie, as you can kind of see in the trailers. So those are the figures included with this set. As for the set itself, they do spend a lot of time in the basement, essentially the crypt, or dungeon as they call it. All the sanctum Sanctorum, and you know they have like a tool drawer and that is kind of...

...in the movie. The couch isn't super accurate shell full of crap. That makes some sense to me. Computer that makes sense to me. That's actually an accurate detail to the movie. There is a big gateway which is seen in the movie. That has some nice details, although annoying stickers. There's a kind of rocky stuff going on and then like some Weird Scorpions and spiders. Those are really need to be there as a candle Labra. I don't remember seeing that at all in the movie. And then there's a treasured chest that has some kind of tentacles coming out. That's not in the movie. And the main kind of antagonist of this set is some kind of Scorpion looking thing that is just one hundred percent not in the movie. I honestly predicted this as soon as I saw this set. I was like, I bet that Scorpion thing. It's just not accurate to the film and Lego made something up, and it turns out that was completely right. So this set, I'd say, is like fifty percent accurate. The figures are great. It's octually be a pretty goodlooking build and I think it goes well with the other sectum saying to rum sets. We've gotten to kind of make a bigger interior scene, but overall not the best and I really am crossing my fingers that Leo will come through and give us like they did in the Infinity Saga in the Summer Two Thousand and twenty one, they'll give us some updates on these spider man sets, because there's a lot of stuff from spider man no way home. If you seen the movie you would know would make for some pretty fantastic Lego sets. But that is it for the Lego mcu spider man. I've now covered all of these spider man movie sets, as a plethora of sets based on spider man comics that I have not talked about. At some point I'll get to them, but I need to take a little bit of break from Marvel and kind of focus on some other things for brick ology. But thank you so much for joining me today. I thought this went pretty well. Smoother in the Harry Potter episode. I think my news hit up here should bode well for doing kind of more informal and easier to produce episodes of brick ology. Hopefully the microphone sounded really good. Give me some feedback. Came with a DM on instagram if you really want to tell me what you thought of this episode. Thank you so much for listening today. Have a fantastic rest of your day, week, month, whatever it is for you. Piece out God, bless God by.
