The LEGO® Marvel Super Heroes buildable action figures…

Super LEGO® Iron Man™ (4529) RRP £10.99 has everything a superhero could need! Build him up to be so powerful that his villains stand no chance! Powered up armour – check! Repulsor rays – check! Jet boots – check! Shoulder-mounted blaster – check! Either alone or with his fellow Avengers he will put any villain in his place.

Take LEGO® Captain America™ (4597) RRP £10.99 for example who is more powerful than ever with his indestructible bladed Vibranium shield and expert martial arts and boxing abilities. LEGO Captain America is going to show the super villains of the world that they messed with the wrong guy!

LEGO® Hulk™ (4530) RRP £10.99 is ready for action! His super strength and scientific brain are just what the mighty Avengers need to rid the world of evil super villains. Those villains had better not make LEGO Hulk angry; they wouldn’t like him when he’s angry!

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
