San Diego Comic Con not only saw some of The LEGO Movie 2 sets, and the sale of the LEGO Ideas Voltron set, but there were two other Super Heroes sets that made their debut: 76115 Spider-Man Mech vs. Venom Mech and 76095 Aquaman: Black Manta Strike.
I mean seriously. The Spider-Man set and the Batmech vs. Poison Ivy Tree could be the start of something. I blame that terrible Hulkbuster set. But you know, all these super heroes and their mechs, sounds awfully familiar…
I took some extra pics of the Spider-Man set. Those are below. I don’t have anything more for the Manta set, just what LEGO sent me.

And “Ghost Spider”? If that’s not supposed to be Spider-Gwen then I don’t know what is. This might be the closest thing we’ll ever get to her. Also, I like how they just gave up on the back of the mechs.

I honestly thought this was a Batman set just by the Black Manta thing alone. That, and LEGO’s and DC’s propensity to include Batman in 99% of the DC sets.
