Hey guys! Today I have a review of a LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Mighty Micros set – 76091 Mighty Micros: Thor vs. Loki. This set retails for £8.99 (UK), $9.99 (U.S.), $17.99 (Aus), and $19.99 (NZ), and contains 79 pieces. There are two minifigures included – Thor and Loki.
- Loki wears an ostentatious green and gold outfit. His trademark horned helmet is back, and he has a new head print. Interestingly, his head is golden with flesh printing on it, though his head print is a little faint on mine. He has a very devious grin on his face. His torso print is a little too simplistic for my liking – I’d have liked something slightly more detailed. His scepter is represented by a diamond in a lightsaber hilt.
- Thor wears a black, blue, and red outfit that is fairly faithful to his comic appearances. His light blond hair is reused but his head piece is new – though the crazy expression is a bit too much if you ask me. His torso print, short cape, and bare arms do look pretty good, though. He comes with Mjolnir.
The two minifigures are okay, but I still don’t really like how over-the-top these Mighty Micros figures are.There are two cars in the set – the first is Thor’s. It’s built on the standard Mighty Micros wheelbase and has a big silver engine at the front. Some headlights and a grill embellish the front. The back has a windscreen and steering wheel for Thor, some gold pieces, and two white wings which are meant to represent the winged design on Thor’s comic book helmet designs. Some lightning bolts also come out of the back to show the God of Thunder’s powers. It’s a decent build but like most Mighty Micros, I’m not sure that it’s entirely relevant or useful for Thor.The other build is the car for Loki. It has a green color scheme with two big claws (cleverly connected via a golden handlebar) at the front meant to represent Loki’s horned helmet. It’s a good idea but I think they should have been in gold. Loki gets a steering wheel and a golden backrest.
I’ll be frank, guys… I guess I just don’t really get the Mighty Micros line. Unlike Thanos’ awesome Infinity Gauntlet from 76072, neither of the builds are particularly great or relevant to the characters. I guess it will be fun for LEGO’s younger audience to play with the cars, but for the older audience I’d recommend you spend a bit more to get a proper set like 76029 Iron Man vs. Ultron or 76101 The Outrider Dropship Attack.
