LEGO Marvel Superheroes Spider-Man: Daily Bugle Showdown Review (LEGO)

What It Is

The LEGO Marvel Superheroes Spider-Man: Daily Bugle Showdown set is a large, 476-piece construction set that comes with everything kids need to build the Daily Bugle Corporation (DBC) building, a plane and 5 LEGO Mini-Figures.

Is It Fun?

Some LEGO sets are fun to build and then place on a shelf for display. This is one of those LEGO sets that's quick to build and then fun to play with. The three stories Daily Bugle Corporation building has all sorts of details and fun features, like an exploding window, rooftop trapdoor, a catapult dumpster and pivoting fire escapes. Kids can even make Spidey fly through the air with a LEGO web that attaches to the building.

The set also includes five LEGO Mini-Figures of Spider-Man, Dr. Doom, J. Jonah Jameson, Beetle and Nova.

Who It’s For

Designed for LEGO and Spider-Man fans, ages 6 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

This is a simple construction set that even young LEGO fans should be able to complete in a couple hours. It took us just over one hour.

The DBC building has lots of additional features like swiveling chairs, a computer and drafting board for the Daily Bugle's next edition. There's even a small comic book with a story that takes place at the Daily Bugle and stars the five mini-figures.
