LEGO has been a staple of childhood play since the 1940s. The mere mention of the name instantly brings memories of the interlocking bricks and minifigures scattered around the floor (and maybe accidentally stepping on them) From these small blocks, LEGO built an empire that includes theme parks and an animated movie franchise. The LEGO Movie brought the imagination of childhood to life as minifigs of iconic fictional characters came together to save the world. Its success, and the sequels and spin-offs, prove that seeing the world of LEGO brings out the kid in us all.
While Marvel characters haven’t been seen in any of the LEGO feature films, they have had several LEGO TV specials with them. For this holiday season, give the gift of these Marvel minifig characters and create your own LEGO Marvel universe.
Spider-Man – $9.99
Everyone’s favorite friendly neighborhood Spider-Man is yours to own! Instead of swinging from buildings in New York, Peter Parker can swing into your LEGO collection. Which Peter Parker is under the mask: Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield, or Tom Holland? That’s up to you and your imagination to determine.
Mary Jane Watson – $8.01
Face it tiger: what’s Peter Parker without his redheaded love interest? This MJ features her in the outfit she wears when she’s saved by Spider-Man from the Green Goblin for the first time in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man.
Aunt May – $9.99
Sorry to Uncle Ben, but this holiday season, give the gift of Peter Parker’s sweet aunt/parental figure. This minifig features the traditional older version of the character with an ice cream cone. It doesn’t get more wholesome than that.
Aldrich Killian – $7.59
The unappreciated villain of Iron Man 3 is forgotten no more! This Guy Pearce miniature is a great deep cut character for your villains gallery. Just make sure this minifig does not explode from too much Extremis.

Until The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special is released, make sure to play a track from the Awesome Mix when you bring this Guardian out.
Rocket & Groot – $22.95
The dynamic duo of the genetically enhanced raccoon and a teenage sentient tree is essential to every Marvel LEGO collection. After being separated from the Snap, these two are determined to stay by each other’s side because they’re each other’s family. I am Groot!
