Do you want lots of Marvel minifigures and a big tall office building to stick them all in? Well do I have the set for you…

Introducing 76178 Daily Bugle

What do you think of this one? I am a bit underwhelmed by the building itself to be honest.

Press Release


18th May 2021: Today, the LEGO Group reveals the new LEGO® Daily Bugle set, an intricate version of the iconic newspaper building, complete with the demanding editor, J. Jonah Jameson’s, and Peter Parker’s offices. Designed for grown-ups, it is the tallest LEGO Marvel set to date standing at 82cm tall and featuring 3,772 pieces.

The Daily Bugle offices first featured in The Amazing Spider-Man comic series over 50 years ago in 1963 and remains a much-loved setting throughout the web-slinger’s various adventures. Workplace of Peter Parker, Ben Urich, Robbie Robertson, J. Jonah Jameson and Betty Brant, it is here that the iconic phrase of “Get me pictures of Spider-Man!” was first uttered.

The LEGO Daily Bugle is incredibly detailed both inside and out, with four floors, the front street and the back alley. The whole set is also modular meaning you can remove walls and floors to get to the action within.

Within the building there are several famous settings from the various universes, including the ground floor entrance that can be destroyed to look like an explosion has taken place and the newsroom on the first floor complete with the usual office furniture of desks and computers, but also much needed donuts and other treats!

Moving up to the second floor, the villainous Green Goblin can be seen smashing a window to get to Peter Parker’s office where his camera lies waiting for the next story. The top floor also features both Betty Brant and J. Jonah Jameson’s offices.

The detail doesn’t stop with the building, as the set includes a huge cast of 25 minifigures, featuring Spidey himself alongside his most famous friends and foes, such as Gwen Stacy, Venom, Mysterio, and Doctor Octopus. The set also features new exclusive minifigures including Daredevil and Blade.

Mark John Stafford, LEGO Set Designer commented “I was seven years old when I was given my first Spider-man comic and I have always had an image of creating a LEGO model of the Daily Bugle and having Spidey and his Amazing Friends in conflict with his various enemies.

“One of my favourite elements is the Green Goblin flying inside the building through the window. Being able to design a moment of frozen action like this in a LEGO set has always been a dream and I finally got to make it happen! ”

The impressive building is a true challenge for LEGO builders and Spider-Man fans alike thanks to its large scale and intricacies. Whether it’s part of a wider collection or a standalone piece it’s a set worthy of display.

    Basically it looks like a really really expensive play set. I saw this just before on another site with a USD price of $299 so expected the usual 40-50% increase for our price, but $500 for what is a pretty boring looking building is a lot. Anyone wanting it, wait, I’m sure it will be in retailers at a good discount by early next year at the latest! Thanks for the info 🙂

    Reviews already on youtube. Same price as Ninjago City Gardens means this is a pass for me, but I can see the attraction for fans of the MCU (and also why it featured heavily on Lego Masters this year ;)).

    Not sure I’m a fan of desirable exclusive minifigures only finding their way into $500 sets, but I can understand why that’s a good strategy for Lego.

    First set I have had any interest in for the past 18 months. But giving it’s a ‘black box’ set, it will always be full price at Myer. So may as well get it day 1 from Lego.

      Some black box sets are carried by other retailers and/or discounted by Amazon, but yeah if you want it in the near term I guess there may not be another option.

      The same Spider Gwen is available in 76174, and the same figure with the older style hood is in 76115 and 76149. Don’t pay $500 just for her!

    After Punisher and Blade. Hopefully with the large amount of minifigures I will be able to get them for less than $20 each.

    Comparing this to other sets in the price range, such as Ninjago City Gardens and Mos Eisley Cantina, I’m struggling to see how Lego can justify the price tag. Apart from the impressive range of minifigs, the rest of the build seem……well, bland, Its literally one great big grey box with some details on the inside. This pales in comparison to past sets released in this price point, especially when you consider how great the Helicarrier and Ghostbusters HQ was, not to mention the original Ninjago City set. Other than keen Marvel fans (which I guess there are probably a lot of), I can’t really see this set being all that popular, Maybe time will prove me wrong but somehow I don’t see this flying off the shelves…….
