LEGO Super Heroes 2014

  • Updated date:

In 2014, Marvel superheroes would get the most diverse selection of building sets. DC mainly focused on Batman and a couple promotional minifigures, that tie into the new LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham video game.

Avengers

The Avengers are Earth's mightiest heroes and are also a great way for LEGO to create an assortment of Marvel super hero building sets, without having to give any one character a larger sub-theme.

Avengers: Captain America vs. Hydra

Item #: 76017

Universe: Marvel

Ages: 6-12

Pieces: 172

Minifigures:

  1. Captain America
  2. Red Skull
  3. HYDRA Henchman

Captain America is chasing after the Red Skull and Hydra, who have acquired the cosmic cube. The set contains two models. Captain America's motorcycle is very similar to Mac McCloud's, from the Pharaho's Quest theme. LEGO was proud of saying Cap's motorcycle has "working suspension wheels". The HYDRA tank is the largest model in the set. It seated two minifigures. One drives the off-road vehicle, while the other operates the turret. The gun can rotate and is armed with dual flick-fire missiles.

Avengers: Hulk Lab Smash

Universe: Marvel

Ages: 6-12

Pieces: 398

Minifigures:

  1. Hulk
  2. Thor
  3. Falcon
  4. MADOK
  5. Taskmaster

This building set is based on the Disney XD Avengers Assemble cartoon. Thor has been captured by A.I.M. and being held in one of their underground bases. The laboratory measures 9" high, 10" wide and 6" deep. It comes with lots of things for the Hulk to smash. He can burst through the collapsible wall, to gain access to the facility, and then destroy the breakable wall and shielded cell. The villains' hideout is guarded by a rotating laser cannon and attack droid armed with two flick-fire missiles.

Batman

Batman, his rogue gallery of villains and all their fantastic vehicles were the main focus for this year's DC Super Heroes building sets.

Batman Classic T.V. Series Batmobile

Item #: SDC037

Universe: DC

Ages: 8-14

Pieces: 152

Minifigures:

  1. Batman
  2. Robin

Fans of the 1966 Adam West, Batman television series were in for a real treat this year. After almost 50 year, this campy take on Batman was being released on bluray/DVD. LEGO would also create a model of the Batmobile. The promotional set was released at the 2014 San Diego Comic-Con. The model is a relatively accurate representation of the car seen on t.v. There are some small inaccuracies, like two exhaust pipes instead of three and some gadget placements. The Batman and Robin minifigures do not match the television show and come from the Juniors line.

Batman: The Joker Steam Roller

Item #: 76013

Universe: DC

Ages: 7-14

Pieces: 486

Minifigures:

  1. Batman
  2. Robin (Damian Wayne)
  3. Batgirl
  4. Joker
  5. Joker Henchman

The Joker and his Henchman are causing random destruction in a steam roller and it's up to Batman and his allies to stop them. The steam roller is built in crazy Joker fashion. The large smile makes the chunky movable roller even more terrifying. It is armed with the Joker's signature laughing gas bombs, that can be flicked at enemies. For close combat, the Joker has his flag gun. Batman is flying the Batwing to intercept. The opening cockpit allows Batman to sit comfortably inside. The wings fold into attack position and are armed with four flick-fire missiles. Damian Wayne and Batgirl make their first appearance in this set, but the box accidentally calls Damian by his alias of Robin.

Batman: Man-Bat Attack

Item #: 76011

Universe: DC

Ages: 6-12

Pieces: 184

Minifigures:

  1. Batman
  2. Nightwing
  3. Man-Bat

The main model in this set is the redesigned Batcopter. It is slightly smaller than the version released in 2007 and has been given highlights to fit in with the other bat-vehicles in the relatively newer DC Super Heroes theme. The Batcopter gas one flick-fire missile on each of its wings. A working winch can be used to rescue Nightwing from falling or ensnaring Man-Bat. For realistic detail, the cockpit opens and the rotor blades spin. Nightwing's glider is simple in its design and armed with grappling hooks. Since Man-Bat can fly naturally, all he needs are sticks of dynamite.

Batman: The Penguin Face Off

Item #: 76010

Universe: DC

Ages: 5-12

Pieces: 136

Minifigures:

  1. Batman
  2. Penguin
  3. Penguin Minion (2)

The story for this set is your classic diamond heist. With two vehicles, two robot penguins and two minifigures, no one model is too large, but they are all packed with fun detail. Batman's SCUBA vehicle is armed with two flick-fire missiles and he is wearing SCUBA gear. The Penguin drives a vehicle shaped like a duck armed with two flick-fire missiles. The diamond can be secured in a block of ice.

Batman: The Riddler Chase

Item #: 76012

Universe: DC

Ages: 6-12

Pieces: 304

Minifigures:

  1. Batman
  2. Flash
  3. Riddler

The Riddler has robbed a bank and is fleeing the scene of the crime in a dragster. This would be the first LEGO building set vehicle designed for the Riddler. It has large rear wheels, a big engine and flames coming out. Detachable bombs can deter most of those in pursuit and a banana will trip the Flash. This would have the first Flash Minifigure in a building set. Batman's suit and Batmobile were redesigned and made to look like their appearance in the animated Beware the Batman, which was airing on Cartoon Network. The Batmobile has a detachable cockpit and hidden flick-fire missiles.

Batman of Zur-En-Arrh

Item #: SDCC036

Universe: DC

Ages: 6+

Pieces: 6

Minifigures:

  1. Batman of Zur-En-Arrh


Batman of Zur-En-Arrh has a couple origins within DC's multiple Earths. In one reality, it is an insane personality that would be used if Bruce Wayne's secret identity is ever discovered. Another world has Batman of Zur-En-Arrh as a separate person and completely sane. This Minifigure was a giveaway at the San Diego Comic Con. The character included many first for a Batman Minifigure. Besides the obvious coloring and use of a baseball bat, instead of a batarang, this would be the first Batman head to have an open grin and angry face with stubble.

Tumbler

Item #: 76023

Universe: DC

Ages: 16+

Pieces: 1869

Minifigures:

  1. Batman
  2. Joker


The Tumbler is based on The Dark Knight. It is an Ultimate Collector's Series set and would be the largest Super Heroes model released yet. The armored vehicle has adjustable wings and a detachable roof. LEGO created special front wheels, to recreate the look in the film, and incorporated TECHNIC pieces for a suspension system. The interior of the vehicle is extremely detailed. There are two seats, steering wheel, computer monitors, keyboards, a rear view camera and lots of levers. Both minifigures are exclusive to this set. Batman has his Batman Begins Batsuit in black and Joker is based on Heath Ledger's character. The minifigures have a display stand, that also includes a fact sheet about the Tumbler.

Guardians Of The Galaxy

This year would see the summer blockbuster movie Guardians of the Galaxy. LEGO was able to base several building sets on the popular film and add to its impressive list of Marvel Minifigure characters.

The Collector

Item #: N/A

Universe: Marvel

Ages: 6+

Pieces: 5

Minifigures:

  1. The Collector

The Collector is an Elder of the Universe, who is over 5 billion years old. He is obsessed with collecting rare objects and creatures from across the universe. He either does this to preserve them from a cataclysmic event or to stave off the boredom of eternity. This minifigure is a Comic-Con exclusive. The Minifigure has two faces printed on the head. One side shows a stern expression and the other is angry. (The Collector is not a happy man.) The figure comes with the Aether, which is built by having a 1X1 translucent stud between two round 1X1 pieces.

Knowhere Escape Mission

Item #: 76020

Universe: Marvel

Ages: 6-12

Pieces: 433

Minifigures:

  1. Rocket Racoon
  2. Groot
  3. Nebula
  4. Sakaaran Soldier

This set is based on the scene where our heroes are discovered at the Knowhere mining facility. While a lot happened during the battle, these models focus on Groot and Rocket's action sequence. The mining pod has an opening cockpit, grabbing arms and fuel bombs. The bad guys have a portable spring-loaded bazooka. A catapult can be loaded with fuel bombs and used by either side. The mine is represented by a large tower. The structure is packed with playable features. A trap door can drop minifigures to their doom. The tower can "explode" and fall down. The set also has a docking station for the mining pod. This would be the first set to contain Groot and Nebula. Groot is much taller than your average minifigure, so his character must be assembled. He stands 5" tall and is fully articulate.

Milano Spaceship Rescue

Item #: 76021

Universe: Marvel

Ages: 8-14

Pieces: 665

Minifigures:

  1. Star-Lord
  2. Gamora
  3. Drax The Destroyer
  4. Ronan The Accuser
  5. Sakaaran Soldier

The Milano Spaceship rescue is inspired by the epic action sequence at the end of the movie. With two flick-fire missiles and two stud shooters, the Milano is well armed for battle. As Star-Lord's personal vehicle and the main ship in the movie, LEGO made sure to give the Milano a lot of details. The cockpit can open and be removed, allowing access to the inside of the ship. The interior has enough room for three minifigures and contains details like a fire extinguisher and Star-Lord's signature tape recorder. Decals from the promotional Rocket Racoon 5002145 set can be used to add even more fun details. Since Ronan's base ship would be too large for a standard scale set, the box comes with the smaller Necrocraft. This fighter has an opening cockpit, adjustable wings and two missiles. This would be the first set to have Star-Lord wearing his Ravagers suit. Gamora, Drax and Ronan would all be making their debut appearance as minifigures. Ronan comes with his Cosmic-Rod Staff.

Universe: Marvel

Ages: 6+

Pieces: 13

Minifigures:

  1. Rocket Racoon

The Rocket Racoon minifigure was a promotional set given away at Toys "Я" Us stores. The figure used the ending of the film for its inspiration. Rocket has the gun that was used near the end of the film and a Groot sprout. This is the set that included extra stickers for The Milano Spaceship Rescue 76021 set mentioned above. These fun decals included things like an I♥︎80s bumper sticker, Awesome Tape #1 and Awesome Tape #2.

Rocket Racoon’s Warbird

Item #: COMCON034

Universe: Marvel

Ages: 8-14

Pieces: 145

Minifigures:

  1. Rocket Racoon

Only 1,000 of these numbered sets were available at the San Diego Comic Con. The set was released as a promotion for the Guardians of the Galaxy movie and LEGO building sets. Rocket sit on top of the ship, because it was too small for a functioning cockpit. The wings have a slight range of movement to fold in and out.

Item #: 76019

Universe: Marvel

Ages: 6-12

Pieces: 196

Minifigures:

  1. Star-Lord
  2. Nova Corps Officer
  3. Sakaaran Soldier

While Star-Lord is focused on the orb, the Nova Corps and Sakaaran are dogfighting in their starfighters. The Nova Corps' Starblaster wings fold to switch between fast pursuit and idle arrest mode. It is armed with two flick-fire missiles and has an opening cockpit. The smaller Necrocraft has an opening cockpit and movable wings. This would be the first set to contain a Nova Officer minifigure.

Martian Manhunter

Item #: 5002126

Universe: DC

Ages: 6+

Pieces: 4

Minifigures:

  1. Martian Manhunter

J’onn J’onzz has several origin stories. He is from Mars and through different circumstances becomes stuck on Earth. His story, like Superman, is one of isolation and struggle to uphold justice. He has a wide range of super powers. His abilities in telepathy, invisibility, strength and flight only touch the surface of his gifts. The polybag only contained the Martian Manhunter Minifigure, but LEGO stressed his "removable cape". This set was free with a purchase of $75 or more from LEGO store or LEGO.com during the month of March. However, it sold out by March 15th.
