Today, The LEGO Group revealed a massive, 3,772-piece building set of the Daily Bugle office, which first appeared as Peter Parker’s workplace in The Amazing Spider-Man comics in 1963. The set, which is more than 2.5 feet tall when built, features three floors, the front street, and the back alley. The entire set is modular, too, so fans can remove walls and floors to see the action within.
And there is plenty of action to see: The building is packed with recreations of scenes from throughout the Spider-Man universes. Builders can destroy the ground floor entrance to make it look like there has been an explosion, while the first floor features the newsroom, complete with desks, computers, and even donuts. The second floor has Peter Parker’s office, and the third floor houses Betty Brand and J. Jonah Jameson’s offices. The exterior has plenty of fun details, too, including the Daily Bugle sign, the fire escape, a DB News screen, and a yellow cab.
However, aside from its height, this set’s crowning feature is the massive cast of mini-figures that it includes. There are 25 characters in all, including a variety of Spidey’s friends and foes. The full lineup is Spider-Man, J. Jonah Jameson, Betty Brant, Venom, Miles Morales, Spider-Ham, Doctor Octopus, Green Goblin, Gwen Stacy, Carnage, Punisher, Peter Parker, Spider-Gwen, Black Cat, Fire Star, Blade, Robbie Robertson, Ben Urich, Mysterio, Daredevil, Sandman, Aunt May, a newspaper worker, a New York taxi driver, and a receptionist. Blade, J. Jonah Jameson, Punisher, Black Cat, and Daredevil are all exclusive to this set.
The Daily Bugle set, which is specifically designed for adult builders, will cost $299.99. VIP Early Access for this set opens on May 26, and general sales open on June 1, exclusively at LEGO Stores and from lego.com.
