LEGO is a worldwide phenomenon as far as toys go, and that means that new sets are discovered all over the world all the time–not just in “the usual countries” like England and the United States. And the newest example of this is a previously-unseen (and totally cool) LEGO Marvel set that’s just turned up for sale online in the Republic of Croatia: the LEGO Spider-Man vs. The Venom Symbiote 30448 Polybag set!
But for those who need a little something extra to tide them over (or a little something that’s both cool and terrifying), the 30448 Spider-Man vs. The Venom Symbiote set has now appeared!
This set includes a Super Jumper accessory, a Spider-Man minifigure and a brick-built Venom symbiote. For those who aren’t familiar with Venom (or forgot what he looked like without a human host), this set includes what is basically the “pure form” of the Venom symbiote, having not yet attached itself to a lucky (or unlucky) victim.
I think the fact that this Venom build includes five Venom minifigure heads is both creepy and fantastic. This polybag’s release is going to give a lot of fans a chance to create their own Venom MOCs at a very cheap price. In addition, I believe that this is the highest number of minifig heads to ever be released in one polybag set (and if you can think of any polybags with nearly as many or more, please remind me, dear readers!).
There can a range in times from days to weeks to months between when a new LEGO polybag set arrives in stores overseas and when it’s eventually released in the United States, so this Spider-Man versus the Venom Symbiote set could show up here in the U.S. anywhere from this winter to next winter. There’s really no way of knowing until it’s spotted somewhere in the country (although my intuition says we’ll be seeing this set stateside by spring).
What do you think of the Spider-Man vs The Venom Symbiote 30448 LEGO set, Marvel fans? Will you be ordering this new-release set from overseas, waiting for it to arrive in your native country, or passing on one of the more nifty Marvel polybags ever altogether?
