I'm going to be honest... I had very little idea what was coming up for the 2017 Marvel lineup outside of Ms. Marvel. In recent years, I've avoided most of the spoiler-y information around sets. There's something nice about wandering into the store, seeing something, and going "wow, that looks cool." It's fairly rare in our modern world of all leaks and spoilers all the time to get something like that. Of course, sometimes that policy ends with Ace laughing at me because I had no idea there was a LEGO Batman Dimensions fun pack featuring Excalibur Batman until yesterday. Literally. This set was one I only knew the name of before it was shown off at Toy Fair, and once I saw the pictures, I knew I was going to buy it just because I wanted an Agent Coulson minifigure. While there's certainly been a lot of movie-to-comic influence in Marvel...(read more)

Pros: I don't like to say this, but the figures are amazing. Ham and Rex are insanely cute, and the overall selection of figures is quite nice. Additionally, the look of the set is spot on, and there's a number of fun features to be had.
Cons: The price.
Comments: I was striving to think of more cons for the set, but really, it's only real problem is the price. The figures are excellent, it looks almost precisely like the source material, it has an excellent parts package, and is just overall a very strong set. That being said, it is in no way worth forty bucks. I understand it's because of the large pieces and the specially-molded figures, but I can't look at it and justify it being that much. Ah, well. Besides that infraction, it is a superb set, and I'd say if you can find it discounted (I got it for Christmas myself), definitely don't miss the chance to pick it up. 7/10 overall.

Pros: Great details, printed parts, lots of figs, and it shoots pizzas!
Cons: Can't see too many with this set
Comments: This set is really darn-near perfect. The look is spot-on, which is aided by printed parts (no stickers here!). Comes with several windscreen parts. The truckbed cover pops off fairly easily to seat Rex and others in the truckbed. The pizza shooter actually works quite well, though it is mounted in the chassis so it works best on a hard surface (pizzas slide) and does not send pizzas airborne.
