Lego Marvel Super Heroes is one of the most anticipated themes of 2012. After all, this is the first time Lego has covered most of these comic based super hero characters- Iron Man, Wolverine, Magneto, Deadpool, Captain America, etc.
With films like Spider-Man, Iron Man, Thor, Hulk, Captain America and the upcoming Avengers and Amazing Spider-Man movies garnering the comics new legions of fans it seems certain the theme is going to be a huge winner for Lego.

While we already have the sets for DC Comics’ arm of the Super Hero theme safely in our hands, the Marvel sets have been kept under wraps…until now.
The New York Toy Fair is happening right now and no less than Marvel themselves have let us have some amazing shots of the upcoming sets. Action Figure Insider was also there to see and take photos of the new sets and minifigures. As a comic fan who obviously loves Lego I can safely say, “The wait was worth it!”
Oh, and stay away from the set descriptions if you want to avoid Spoilers for the upcoming Joss Whedon written and directed Avengers movie!
