Not too long ago, some new Funko POPs confirmed the Elemental villains in the sequel as Molten Man and Hydro-Man, and now it’s LEGO’s turn to show off the new bad guys in building brick form. Plus, Mysterio gets a cool new minifigure as well.
However, one of the Spider-Man Far From Home LEGO sets offers up the possibility of another Marvel Cinematic Universe character getting in on the comic book action after being relegated to the sidelines in recent movies. But that’s assuming that this sequence actually plays out as proposed in the LEGO playset, which doesn’t always translate to what we’ll see on the big screen. Read More »

This year, LEGO is celebrating the 20th anniversary of creating Star Wars building brick playsets. The year was 1999, when The Phantom Menace was bringing Star Wars back from a 16-year hiatus of new adventures on the big screen. And 20 years later, the Star Wars LEGO sets are better than ever, so there’s no better time to reveal a new set recreating the first ship to ever grace the big screen in the Star Wars universe: the Tantive IV rebel cruiser.
In Star Wars: A New Hope, the Tantive IV rebel cruiser desperately tries to evade the much larger Imperial Star Destroyer, but it only ends up being captured with the rebel leader Princess Leia aboard. Now you can build the ship yourself with this LEGO Star Wars Tantive IV playset, featuring five minifigures, shooting turrets, detachable escape pods, and more. Read More »

Jake Gyllenhaal is playing Mysterio, a key villain from the Spider-Man comics, but as we’ve heard, he’s supposedly a hero joining forces with our friendly neighborhood webslinger. That’s because there’s a new threat from these creatures called Elementals, huge, human-looking monsters made up of water, fire and the Earth. So far, fans have only assumed what Spidey bad guys these Elementals might be repurposing from the comics, and now we have official confirmation of who these Spider-Man Far From Home villains are.
