Walmart.com is discounting 6873 Spider-Man’s Doc Ock Ambush by 20%. It’s now just $23.97, down from $29.99 MSRP. I just checked Amazon if they are doing the same thing, but they are not even selling the set (only third-part resellers). 6873 comes with Spider-Man, Iron Fist and emo Doctor Octopus.

I wanted to love this set because of my life-long love of Spider-man. I am, admittedly, a fully realized and completey self aware Marvel Zombie and probably will be for the rest of my life. Marvel would have to screw something up big time for me to jump ship and they’ve screwed up so many times already I doubt they could really tick me off anymore than they already have over the years (I’m looking at you, Brand New Day!). LEGO’s announcement of the Marvel license was a joyous day in my household and while I did pick up a couple choice sets based on the movies years ago the thought of having more classically themed sets and characters was very exciting. Having the first Spider-man set pop up themed around a cartoon I’d never seen, that I assumed was based on the Ultimate Spider-man comic that I can’t stand was troubling, but I still wanted to love it.
As the man once said “You can’t always get what you want…”
LEGO Shop@Home finally has 6873 Spider-Man’s Doc Ock Ambush for sale on their site for $29.99. Pretty good for a 295-piece licensed set if you ask me. Walmart’s site still shows out of stock on this set, so if you’re itching to buy and don’t have a physical Walmart or LEGO Brand Retail store near you, now’s your chance. Throw in a Lord of the Rings set and get a free LEGO LOTR poster with your purchase.
