The latest LEGO theme to be converted into a monthly magazine is Marvel’s Avengers!
That’s right, we finally have a Marvel. magazine. After years of having countless DC Batman issues which, don’t get me wrong, are amazing too, but you can only have so many Batman Minifigures in your collection.
When I first saw this magazine I knew I had to have it, being a Marvel fan and Minifigure collector!
The first freebie Minifigure included is Spider-man, ok he’s not exclusive but I’ll definitely take another any day. This particular Minifigure has been seen before, in 6 different sets to be exact.
- 76133 Spider-Man Car Chase
- 242001 Spider-Man foil pack
- 76146 Spider-Man Mech
- 76134 Spider-Man: Doc Ock Diamond Heist
- 76149 The Menace of Mysterio
- 76147 Vulture’s Trucker Robbery
The printing, front & back, is done to LEGO’s high standards and looks clean and detailed.
Unfortunately the legs are plain blue and aren’t dual-moulded, but you can’t have everything right?! I hope these magazines get better with each issue and we see some exclusive freebies coming our way.
Accompanying Spider-man are a ton of Web accessories, great for playability and using in photographs.
I really like these Web pieces, they add so much to the Minifigure, great for grating scenes and letting your imagination run wild.
Onto the magazine itself, and what can I say. It’s a standard LEGO magazine filled with puzzles, comics, and a poster or 2.
I must say that I rarely read the comic stories included, but again being a Marvel fan I really wanted to see what they did and how the story went. It’s a great little read and myself and my 5 year old Son really enjoyed it.
Nothing really special inside the magazine for AFOLs but then it is aimed at Kids, and there are plenty of activities to do for those younger fans in the family.
I always carefully tear out the posters and keep them in a folder, just incase one day I want to frame and display them. The poster included in this Marvel edition is absolutely amazing! It depicts the original six Avengers in LEGO form with the rest of the line-up in silhouette. It’s a great piece of art and it would look great on anyones wall!
Overall the new LEGO Marvel Avengers Magazine Issue 1 is pretty decent, comes with everyone’s favourite neighbourhood hero, Spider-man. Who’s doesn’t like Spider-man!
Magazine itself is generic but does have some good points, mainly the comic.
For the price, £3.99, it is very good indeed. I recommend it to any Marvel fan!
The back page is normally where I skip to for that glimpse of next issues freebie, and I wasn’t disappointed, the man himself…. Iron Man!

LEGO Marvel Avengers Magazine Issue 1
Great first issue and awesome freebie. The Spider-man Minifigure has appeared in sets before but you can never have too many! The magazine itself is generic with the usual puzzles and comics.
