One of my highlights each month is getting hold of the latest LEGO Marvel magazine, there have only been three issues so far but they have been spectacular.
With each issue we’ve got a quality Minifigure, the first was Spider-man, followed by Iron Man, and in this release we get a rather cool looking Captain Marvel!
It features one of the most enjoyable comic strips out of all the different iterations of LEGO magazine, of course ai am a little bias as Marvel is one of my favourite themes.
It features most of the more popular Avengers and sees them facing off against MODOK, a relatively unknown villain in the current MCU.
Of course the heroine that is given away as the free Minifigure makes an appearance, Caption Marvel, I won’t give away the ending as it’s a good story.
It has the usual activities and puzzles found in every other issue of the LEGO magazine. From wordsearches and a maze, to a dice based hame. It keeps the intended younger fans occupied for a while.
The dice based game requires you to out your ultimate team together by total chance, each roll of the dice adds a random team member t your team. How fun is that!?
You don’t see the next activity very often in LEGO magazines but should be a staple, a colouring in page. It gives you the chance to create a new superhero and colour it in. What suit, name and powers will you choose?
After myself and my Son have finished with the Magazine we carefully tear our the included double-sided poster and either pop it up in his room or add it the the ever growing pile. This issue features the Avengers A logo with some of the teams faces scattered around the background. Flip it over and we get two of theost powerful Avengers, Hulk & Thor!
Although this particular Minifigure isn’t necessarily a rare one as it does come in the previously released Marvel set LEGO Avengers Helicarrier 76153, it is most certainly the cheapest way to bag this awesome Captain Marvel varient.
I do already have a Captain Marvel in my Minifigure collection, I acquired her from the LEGO Captain Marvel and The Skrull Attack 76127 set, back when the movie released. It’s a great Minifigure but it did lack her helmet piece, I guess at the time it wasn’t even on Marvel’s radar let alone LEGO’s!
The printing on the head, torso, and thankfully the legs too is amazing, it’s really well designed and done. Bright colours and crisp lines work really well and really add to this Minifigure and bringing her to life. The cowl/helmet element is so cool and slotting in the blonde mohawk is very satisfying. Finally a fully suited up Captain Marvel to call my own, and for a fraction of the cost.
The included accessories are great but limited, there aren’t as many as we got in the first issue (Spider-man) sadly. Two medium flames are added to her feet and two power blast shooters are held in her hands.
It perhaps would of been nice to include a display option for the Minifigure, a bit like the one in a previous Iron Man Polybag (30542), usually consisting of only a few pieces, it would add so much more display ability to the foil bag.
In the next issue, out 17th February, is another Superhero, make that anti-hero, that often doesn’t get much limelight but should, he’s a great character and makes for a very interesting Minifigure. It is of course… VENOM!
Overall the Magazine is great, with a lot to see, read, and do. There are a hand of puzzles and games that keep even the older fans occupied.
The Minifigure is the real draw here, as usual, and features a Minifigure that would otherwise cost more to split from its original Set. Captain Marvel has become very popular since joining the Avengers on the big screen so having her in the LEGO Minifigure collection is a must. Great design and print, cowl looks stunning with the added blonde mohawk. Great job LEGO!
