The appeal of the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Iron Man: Detroit Steel Strikes 76077 set will vary between Marvel fans, depending on their preferred theme in the franchise. This is sold as being an Iron Man set, and rightly so with the main focus being the battle between Iron Man and another scary-looking machine out to cause mayhem. However, there is also an important element of the set that will appeal to all those that are keen viewers of Agents of Shield. It is an interesting partnership that leads to a new dynamic and fun build for many collectors.
This new 2017 Iron Man set sees Iron Man teaming up with Agent Coulson to take down the Detroit Steel Mech
The Detroit Steel Mech is a large buildable robot with fully poseable legs, arms and hands – all the better for destroying a city or two. It also has two moving wings, the choice of a six-stud shooter and chainsaw and a cockpit for its inventor – Justin Hammer. There is a lot for Iron Man to handle here as he flies around this 14cm tall figure, dodging all the weapons. Luckily this is the “invincible” Iron Man minifigure in this set so the chainsaw and gun shouldn’t be as dangerous to Stark this time. In addition to this Iron Man has the new 2017 Power Blast feature that all the best Marvel Superheroes are after these days. This function means that his powerful fists should be able to inflict more damage when used correctly. In case he has trouble keeping this troublesome machine under control, Agent Coulson is nearby in his specially-adapted convertible car called Lola. Lola has two opening doors, room for the Agent minifigure and folding wheels that activate her flying function. Once Justin Hammer is out of the machine, it wont take much for Coulson and Stark to capture him and bring him to justice.
The LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Iron Man: Detroit Steel Strikes 76077 Building set provides a whole new storyline that collectors will love.
There are sure to be many older fans that will spend as much time, if not more, playing around with Lola and testing out the features we’ve come to love from the TV series. Also, this model and Coulson figure can easily fit into other creative storylines with other Avengers based LEGO sets. There is a lot of appeal in this battle, the fighting functions and the little details, all of which make this a must-have LEGO Iron Man set.
