Lego Marvel: Ant Man Set
So I do not normal get Super Hero Lego sets. I will probably be able to show some more on the blog in the future as my son ages into real Lego sets. He already has a pretty good collection of the Ninja Turtle Lego broken down into random parts since that is what kids do. I did decide to ask for the Ant Man as a birthday gift set though as it was only like 20 dollars. I have not gotten out to see the movie but expect to watch it on cable/dvd in the future.
They did the same thing for the two hero suits with red. They look really distinct in the minifigure line with these helmets.
The set comes with a brick built flying ant (Anthony). It is articulated at the head and thorax with some movement in the wings, pincers, and legs. Pretty good ant but not the awesomeness that was Shelob from the first wave of LOTR sets.
They also give you the parts to build some giant Lego Bricks and the correspond in regular size ones. This is supposed to set up the scale for you as the characters shrink down to the size of Lego bricks. I thought this was kind of meta so liked the idea a lot. The "bricks" form a launcher that shoots screws.
