January 2021 Marvel Superheroes Sets Announced

Hot on the heels of the Chinese New Year, Harry Potter, and Super Mario sets, the LEGO® Group just announced the January 2021 Marvel Superheroes sets! While I do not generally purchase the Marvel sets, I remain a fan. Consequently, the Minifigures seen in these set images have tempted me. While none of them are characters we have not see before, many are characters that I do not have. Keep reading for set specifics!

I am really looking forward to Carnage, Miles Morales, Spider-Gwen, and Ghost Rider. While I would enjoy a more classic looking Ghost Rider, I am glad to see one included here. I also do not have a new version of Captain America with the separate helmet, or Thor with his helmet. From my perspective, these sets comprise a great Minifigure selection. I am neither here nor there about the builds themselves. However, that is often the case with Superheroes sets. Luckily, these sets are a good value (with the exception of the Sandman set). Additionally, they feature good brick-to-fig ratios. Therefore, they make good Minifigure purchases. How do you feel about the January 2021 Marvel Superheroes sets?

Until next time,

    That lower body piece for Sandman is awesome! I could see that going into a lot of neat custom builds.
