New Captain Marvel and The Skrull-Attack LEGO Set Review and Promo Clips

Captain Marvel releases on March 8th, and I’m so excited, that I’ve already asked for the day off to go see the movie on IMAX in the middle of the day.

I also ordered the Captain Marvel and The Skrull-Attack LEGO set the day it was available, direct from the website. It retails at $29.99. It’s a fun set with a cool Quinjet that shoots multiple missiles at once. And includes Captain Marvel, Fury, a Skrull, and Goose (formerly Chewie in the comics). It comes in 3 separate bags with clear instructions, and 1 page of stickers.

I only wish there were more LEGO sets for the film, as I’d buy them all!

Here’s the recent Captian Marvel featurette that just released:

And a special look that just released as well… enjoy!
