2017 Marvel Super Heroes Mighty Micros revealed

Posted by ,

LEGO has revealed three more Mighty Micros in the last few minutes and these are all based on Marvel characters. They will be available from the 1st of January alongside the models from DC Super Heroes which were first shown a few days ago.

You can view larger images of all three after the break...

Wolverine vs. Magneto:

Spider-Man vs. Scorpion:

Iron Man vs. Thanos:

I think they all look great but Iron Man vs. Thanos is the most impressive in my opinion. Share your thoughts in the comments below.

Thanos' vehicle is awesome--love the color. And Wolverine's is a good representation of the jet.

Iron Man Vs. Thanos is the highlight of this wave much like the Batman Vs. Killer Moth was for DC Comics.

Wolverine Vs. Magneto...Why? Wolverine and Deadpool would have been a perfect fit for this concept!

LEGO will not make a Deadpool mini figure after the movie. I think they realize it's just too much for them.

These are much nicer than this years. Love the cartoon faces, just wish there were normal legs.

I've never been a very big fan of the mighty micros, but that Thanos Infinity Gauntlet is AMAZING!!! I will have to get that.

Iron Man vs. Thanos and Superman vs. Bizarro are probably the highlights of the new wave.

That Thanos one and Iron Man one may be the first micro set I get, unless I pick up the Ultron one first.

The Thanos car is fantastic and all, but holy crap, an X-Men set! I'm getting that.

Wow, I love all of these! Even that Magneto is cute.

wish they used the normal legs instead of the "kid"variant......
The Loki one had normal legs.

@allstyles: There hasn't been a Loki minifig in a mighty micros set.

These are incredible!!! The Iron Man vs. Thanos set is definitely a highlight.

Gravatar

OK, that helmet and gauntlet car are just too good!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Hold on, why is there another spiderman!?!? Thor vs Loki would have been way better. Anyway, Iron man vs thanos looks great, it might be my first mighty micros set. All the vehicles seemed to have improved a lot.

Thanos's vehicle looks amazing. Isn't that a gold lego ninjago spinner on the back too.

That face on Iron Man; is a perfect Tony Stark face! Makes me laugh!

Looks like my LEGO city will have a lot of new trick or treaters this Halloween.

Magneto's car is a big horseshoe magnet! These are getting better each wave.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Iron man vs Thanos is my first really genuine like. I'll get that one for sure. I do like the magnet for magneto as well, but will probably skip that set

Gravatar
By in United States,

I see a lot of uncommon parts that will be pretty nice to have such as the purple cape and the golden gauntlet!

Gravatar
By in United States,

I think the Iron Man is hilarious! And, despite it's cartoony appearance, the helmet does bare more than a little resemblance to the original Iron Man comics. Pretty funny, might have to pick one up.

I want all of them!!!!!! Marvel is far better than DC

Gravatar
By in United States,

"I understand these probably sell like mad with younger children...but WHY do you waste production slots on these, LEGO?"

Answered your own question there.

(Plenty of adults have expressed enthusiasm, too.)

It's a real shame they didn't use Sabertooth the pair with Wolverine. Magneto isn't bad, but he could be paired up with any of the X-Men (he would work especially well paired with a Professor X Mini Microsince, especially sincfe it feels as if we're never going to see him in set form otherwise at the rate we're going)

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Lovely to see more X-Men sets (dananana da-na da, dananana da-na daa), I can't wait! Also that Infinty Gauntlet car is officially the best thing I think anyone has ever done.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Yes, shame we have to get a second Spidey. At least the new Batman is 60s style.

Seems like you answered your own question...

Superhero Kart Racing...lego really needs to make this a thing even if its only a DLC or a Minigame attached to the next Lego Marvel game (if they make one)

Gravatar
By in United States,

@LegendsOfNinjago there's actually a Mighty Micros app!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Very cool! Will be buying these.
Some of them remind me of entries from our Brickset competition though, in particular the Magneto magnet one.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Mostly looking forward to the hair (Wolverine & Tony Stark) and any printed pieces.

I don't get the complaints about the legs. They're "Micros." Plus, don't you already have normal legs? If not, they're pretty easy to find.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Magneto face looks great.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I think they're cute, but I gotta say, Wolverine vs. Magneto? Seriously? Not only is Wolverine's skeleton made of metal, but, presumably, so is his car.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@Matt89190: These Mighty Micros sets seem to be aimed mostly at people who have this thing called a "sense of humor". Ya know, people who don't get a kick out of seeing superheroes looking and acting cute or silly.

And I don't see how you think these are wasting production slots, since they're tiny little $10 sets and there haven't BEEN any other $10 Super Heroes sets. Plus, even if you exclude Mighty Micros, 2016 had just as many normal retail Super Heroes playsets as any previous year!

2012: 6 Marvel sets, 6 DC sets (plus three constraction sets each)
2013: 5 Marvel sets, 5 DC sets
2014: 9 Marvel sets, 4 DC sets
2015: 9 Marvel sets, 7 DC sets
2016: 10 Marvel sets, 7 DC sets (plus three Mighty Micros each)

Clearly, the Mighty Micros, like the constraction/"buildable figure" sets from 2012, are released in ADDITION to the sets the Super Heroes theme normally gets, not in place of them.

Just realized Spidey's ride looks like his iconic Spider-Mobile. Awesome!

@vwong19 that 1602 spider-man would have been the best

By in Sweden,

Spider-Man again? Why not Thor, I hear he's pretty popular?

Don't really like the Iron Man mask, but they're all still really good. Would've really loved to have gotten a Thor one though.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

@Matt89190 - The Mighty Micros have proven to be extremely popular and I expect they will continue to be. The stylised minifigures included in these sets are a bit of fun and the play value is exceptional in relation to the price, hence they are such a successful concept.

All evidence suggests that many children prefer the Mighty Micros to other sets of a similar price.

Iron Man vs. Thanos best

By in Australia,

Everyone's loving these, and no, I just don't get it. I think they look awful. The Infinity Gauntlet car is a unique take, sure, but buying that requires buying a chibi Thanos, and I'm just like, why?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Dudes! This is the return of X-Men after a 2 year absence from the theme! I do hope this means we get more regular X-Men sets! :D

Gravatar
By in United States,

I don't buy superhero sets but I have to say I find these very charming. They share the same wacky novelty design sensibilities as Mario Kart and that's the kind of tongue-in-cheek fun I love to see in Lego sets! I think they're a great antithesis to how dour and joyless cape comics/movies tend to skew these days, and how few of them are actually kid-accessible. So I probably won't buy them, but I really appreciate that Lego is making them.

EDIT: actually, I forgot that Killer Moth car is extremely cute, so maybe I'll take the plunge after all!

Iron man actually looks like his old armour from the comic books. Remember when he had a nose

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

@Wolffe33 Magneto does have a shadowy appearance in some comics, with his eyes shining out. In his first appearance in 1963 his face down to his nose is in shadow, with his eyes, again, in plain view still.

Gravatar

Thanos' ride is brilliantly designed! Love it!

IRON MAN VS. THANOS... YESSSSSS.

Only disappointment is the reuse of Spidey. At least his vehicle is better this time around.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

spidey has already had an outing against the goblin guys... do daredevil vs kingpin or mr fantastic vs dr doom, or maybe thor vs a dark elf...

however i love the ironman v thanos one.

I can see that magneto head being used in a possible onslaught moc...

Gravatar
By in United States,

Paragon132, I'd been thinking of doing that with jawas, then scooby doo's black knight when that came out, so I'm right with ya.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

They make too many x men sets with wolverine and magneto.storm or Jean grey would have been fantastic instead of magneto for an x men:apocalypse themed set.

Gravatar
By in United States,

These look terrific, my kids want all of them. They love the facial expressions.

Has there been any word on DC Super Hero Girls LEGO sets? There was an article in April 2015 about it but I can't find anything more current. I've seen books and other toys in stores but no LEGO.

Really stoked for that classic 60's
Iron Man! It will make a nice addition to my Hall of Armor. Also, Magneto's head is useful for a custom MoonKnight perhaps!

Wasn't a big fan of these at first, but all the new pieces makes it nice :)

By in United States,

I really like these Marvel Mighty Micros for 2017. Iron man and Spiderman's vehicles are okay. The rest I think are very cool , especially Thanos'. And I think it's good to get another Iron man , with a new helmet, Magneto, Scorpion, and Thanos. I feel like we shouldn't have gotten another Spiderman in the next wave when we already have one but on the bright side we do get another expression.

I love the Iron Man minifigure! The cars are good too.
