However, this set is not tied to the movie at all. Apparently Mega Blechs has the license, based on some photos I believe I saw over on Brickset. LEGO only picked up the rights to make sets based on the cartoon series. Based on the pics in the comics that come with the Super Heroes sets, I think the Spidey and Iron Fist figures look good. Not sure how I feel about Doc Ock though. I kind of like the older figures better that came with Hollywood line of sets. I always felt the movie version of the Doc captured the character pretty much as he appeared in the comic...minus the green body suit.
The AU price they have listed is $99.99, but I know Aussies pay insane prices for LEGO. The set looks pretty similar in size to the Helicarrier or the Dynamic Duo Funhouse, so I'm guessing we'll probably see this in the US at more of a $40-50 price point. At $40, I'd have no problem picking this up...and maybe tucking one or two away for later. I'd love it if it came in at $35, like the Battle over Gotham set.

I have made another concession in my build. The 1x4x5 light bley door with trans clear glass is just too stupid expensive for a single element. I can't justify spending that much on a piece that is going to end up near the back wall of my current display. I've replaced the piece with an identical style of door that has a black frame instead. It cost me less than a dollar. After looking at the $30+ going rate for the correct door, I think I'll be able to live with that decision.
