Unfortunately our review of 76057 Spider-Man: Web Warriors Ultimate Bridge Battle is not quite ready yet so instead we are going to take a trip inside LEGO headquarters where the set was designed and perhaps manufactured.
Huw is currently representing Brickset at a media event in Billund and will be posting his full report in the next couple of weeks. Today he has been exploring the Kornmarken factory and the LEGO Ideas House. Photography is not usually permitted inside the factory but representatives of several LEGO websites have been allowed to take photos to share with readers, which you will find after the break...
