Full disclosure, big Spider-Man fan here. No newsflash to be sure, but if you’ve read my reviews of the Ultimate Spider-Man LEGO sets, you know the biggest problem I have is the fact that it’s the same Spider-Man minifigure in every set.

Every. Damn. Set.

Spidey is one of those characters that has so many outfits in his closet that Marvel loves exploiting any opportunity to take them out and strut them around. We see this over and over in toy lines, big events like the upcoming Spider-verse that boasts Every Spider-Man EVER and in the destined to be mostly terrible new season of the Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon, Web Warriors (Prove me wrong, guys… please).

Review: 76004 Spider-man: Spider Cycle Chase

76004 Overview

I’ve said before that I’m no real fan of the Ultimate Spider-man cartoon, but I’m a huge Spider-man fan in general. Seeing last year’s Spidey set got me quite excited, but in the end it failed to impress me and was a real disappointment. 2013 promised two new Spider-man sets in the first half and this one in particular caught my eye the right off, but I’ve been hurt before. I needed a set to come along and make me feel again.

Preferably one with Nick Fury.

Review: 6873 Spider-man’s Doc Ock Ambush

6873 - Overview

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…”
