Which should you fear more, Ayesha or the Vulture?
In all seriousness though, these two MCU sets are likely to be compared by undecided folks in the LEGO section. So today I’m comparing them and hopefully help you choose which you prefer!
76080 Ayesha’s Revenge is a February 2017 set that retailed for £29.99 in the UK, $29.99 in the US, $49.99 in Australia, and $59.99 in New Zealand.
76083 Beware the Vulture is a June 2017 set that retailed for £44.99 in the UK, $39.99 in the US, $49.99 in Australia, and $59.99 in New Zealand.
76080 Ayesha’s Revenge has four minifigures: Ayesha, Yondu, Star-Lord, and Baby Groot.
76083 Beware the Vulture has four minifigures too: Iron Man MK47, Spider-Man, Shocker, and the Vulture.
Both sets have four minifigures, which makes it rather fair to compare. What is worth noting is that 76083 gives you the four main characters of the Spider-Man: Homecoming movie (that we know of). However, I feel the quality of 76080’s minifigures give it an edge: Ayesha’s gold hair and head is fantastic, Yondu is a long-awaited minifigure, and Baby Groot is so cute. 76083’s minifigures are weaker, as Vulture reuses Iron Man’s helmet mold, and both he and Shocker have unprinted legs. Iron Man also does not have dual-molded legs, which make the silver parts on his legs look like robes.
Winner: 76080 Ayesha’s Revenge
76080 Ayesha’s Revenge has a few play features: a slide-open cockpit, a spring-loaded shooter, stud shooters on the drone, and an exploding rock section.
76083 Beware the Vulture has poseable wings for Vulture, stud shooters, opening van rear with pop-out rapid stud shooter, an buildable rifle, opening crates, and a seat in the front of the van. Also has opening ramp at the back that can be replaced with a web.
Personally, I feel 76080’s play features are a bit unnecessary and get old after a while (especially that rock exploding feature), while 76083 has better quality play features overall. Vulture’s wings are quite poseable and look suitably menacing, the truck is pretty fun to drive around, and the fact that they stored such a large shooter in the back of the truck is quite impressive.
Winner: 76083 Beware the Vulture
76080 Ayesha’s Revenge is $29.99 in the US, £29.99 in the UK, $49.99 in Australia, and $59.99 in New Zealand.
76083 Beware the Vulture is $39.99 in the US, £44.99 in the UK, $49.99 in Australia, and $59.99 in New Zealand.
It’s quite noteworthy to see the big price discrepancy in the US and UK prices (despite Australia’s and New Zealand’s prices remaining the same). Based on that, it’s hard to pick a winner. I’ll leave it at this:
Winner: 76080 if you are in the US/UK, 76083 if you are in Australia/New Zealand.
All in all, this is perhaps the strangest comparison review I’ve done. The final result, in my opinion, is that 76080 Ayesha’s Revenge is better if you live in the US or UK; 76083 Beware the Vulture is better if you are in Australia or New Zealand.
