More to come

Alongside all of the kits that are now available or up for pre-order, there are plenty of other notable LEGO kits on the horizon to look forward to.

And Marvel fans are also in luck, as there are plenty of new creations from the MCU on the way this summer, ranging from kits based on upcoming movies to builds commemorating the first 10 years of flicks as part of an Avengers Infinity Saga series. Not to mention the very first LEGO Marvel collectible minifigure series.
