LEGO Super Heroes: Spider-Man, Daily Bugle Showdown

Product information

Dr. Doom has launched a tyrannical attack upon the Daily Bugle with the help of his trusty henchman, Beetle, all in the hope of being able to land the secret identity of Spider-Man.

It comes down to the web-slinging hero himself to swing into action and prevent this from happening by setting off the Daily Bugle's explosion functions to cause destruction as the jet fires missiles.

He can stop Dr. Doom from hitching the jet's anchor hook to the safe that contains the vital information inside by knocking Beetle off the building with the swinging web attack and dropping Dr. Doom inside with the rooftop trapdoor.

That leave him to fly Nova in through the broken window with the dumpster catapult function and send those villains back to where they came from.

Includes Spider-Man, Nova, Dr. Doom, Beetle and J. Jonah Jameson minifigures with accessories and weapons.

Editors Notes

The company that was destined to become LEGO started life as being a small workshop that produced wooden toys, run by Ole Kirk Christiansen in 1932. The name ‘LEGO’ was adopted in 1934, coming from the Danish phrase ‘leg godt’, which means ‘play well’. It wasn’t until 1947 that they started producing plastic toys, with the first version of the now infamous interlocking bricks coming in 1949.

They weren’t quite the bricks that people are used to nowadays, being made from a different material and having a slightly different locking system. It was actually Christiansen’s son Godtfred Kirk that saw the potential for the bricks to become a tool for creative play and in 1958, the modern brick design was born. From this date, despite variation in the design and purpose of individual pieces over the years, each remains compatible in some way with previous pieces. So you could have a LEGO set from 1958 and it would still be completely compatible with a modern set.

Since the 1960, thousands of sets have been released covering everything from Aliens to the Wild West. The only area that the company has never tackled directly is military-themed sets, because Ole Kirk set a policy that they must never make war seem like child’s play. The largest ever LEGO set to date is a scale-model of the Taj Mahal, which was made out of 5922 pieces.

The LEGO Group's motto is ‘det bedste er ikke for godt’, which roughly translates to "only the best is the best". Ole Kirk Christiansen came up with this phrase to encourage workers to always produce the highest quality toys possible.

Nowadays, LEGO makes a vast range of toys for all ages, as well as teaching materials for children, which are distributed in over 130 countries. The company has approximately 10,000 employees and is the world's third largest manufacturer of play materials.

Lego Bought this for my 5 year old grandson who loved it. He played for hours with this building it up and taken it apart. 02 August 2014
Hours of fun ! My son loves the super hero characters. This product provided endless hours of fun and he found it easy to assemble. Good value for the price paid. 16 July 2014
Fantastic LEGO set, great value! Bought this for my nephew and was surprised by how much you get in the box; loads of building potential and lots of bits to play with once built, he's played with it for hours already. Great to have Spider-Man himself in Lego form and baddies too... makes for hours of fun! Some features which you can't see by looking at the box but which are brilliant additions include secret trap doors and mechanisms for pushing the baddies off the roof and breaking out of windows! Lots of stickers too. Well worth the money. 23 November 2013
