I recently purchased this set of lego, Daily Bugle Showdown and was very satisfied. I will start off with the mini figures.
Spiderman: The main "good guy" of this set, Spider-Man is a very nice figure with detailed printing. On his back he has a spider and he is wearing the blue/red classic Spider-Man suit. Spider man comes with two "webs" which are white rope/chains. Great fig.
Nova: I really like this figure and it is also exclusive! Nova has a new moulded helmet which has eye holes and a mouth gap. I am very happy with the way lego have done his eyes, they are white goggles, instead of doing the Bruce Wayne type head on the batmen. He has nice printing and features two shiny red studs to make him "fly". Nova also has a double sided head, one calm and one angry.
J.Jonah.Jameson: JJ is a cool minifigure, he has a double sided head, one angry (calm for JJ!) and one angrier! He has a nice blue suit and tie and comes with a camera. He is also exclusive to this set.
Beetle: GREAT WINGS! Beetle is a highly detailed figure with awesome printing. He comes with a wing piece which is new, and is holding a pistol. I can't relate beetle to the T.V series as I do not watch them but I can tell you beetle is a cool minifigure. He is exclusive as well!
Doctor Doom ( Victor Von Doom): This guy is probably my favourite minifigure in the set. He comes with a nicely printed body which is green and grey/green legs. He also has a dark green cape and hood. He has a single sided head but the printing is really really cool! Lego did a great job with this figure!
Daily Bugle Building:
This building has three stories and a roof and is very detailed and generally cool and exclusive. On the side there are fire exits on every floor which have a black ladder next to them. The front of the building has two glass doors and four windows. The door is signed "DBC" as well as the top of the building. There are various places to connect spiders web too, as well as the huge radio broadcast of JJ!
First Floor: The first floor is mainly just a plant and doors so not a lot here. Still cool though!
Second floor: the second floor features a cupboard with a newspaper on top, a nice board with pictures of spidey on it, a newspaper about Spider-Man's true identity( definitely not Peter Parker ) and three windows. This is a really cools floor and there are some mechanisms which I will mention later on.
Top Floor. This floor has a swivel chair for JJ along with a computer and keyboard on a desk. You also get a nice lamp! This is probably my favourite floor.
Roof: the roof is mainly a roof but there are three mechanisms.....
Mechanisms on the building: there are four mechanisms on this building which I will say now. The first mechanism is a trapdoor on the roof, when you pull a switch you can send the bad guys tumbling down onto JJ' computer! The second mechanism is a lever that pushes the DBC sign high up off the building like an explosion. Thirdly, my favourite, a mechanism on the roof to push spidey like he is swinging on a web. You can just attach the web to a point on
The building and push the switch to send spidey! Lastly we have a mechanism in the second floor to send one of the windows flying out. JJ won't be too happy about that! In the set we also get a green bin, which can catapult characters.
Doom jet: This is a very cool plane and it features to wings with propellers and an opening cockpit. There are some nice stickers for it and also a detachable grabbing arm for stealing the cupboard. It has nice features but my only con is that when you put doctor doom in there his cape can get a little creased, this is only minor though.
Overall this set is AMAZING and I would definitely recommend it to anyone. You get five awesome figures, a cool building and a great plane. BUY IT!!!!
