The next LEGO Marvel 2024 set that we’ll be checking out is Rocket’s Warbird vs. Ronan (76278) which retails for $37.99 and has 290 pieces. This set is only the second iteration of the ship with the first being the San Diego Comic Con 2014 (COMCON034) exclusive.
There’s only two minifigures in the set, Rocket Raccoon and Ronan. Rocket has an updated torso showing him with an sleeveless armored vest. The head is the newer version that was introduced last year. His accessory is a blaster.
Ronan is back also sporting a slightly updated look. This version has him in all black and gray without any other colors like with before. He now has a double-sided head showing a stern face on one side and an angry expression on the other. He has a black hood and a cloak to complete his look. His accessory is the Cosmi-Rod hammer.
The Warbird is not too small but also not too big and that’s on par with LEGO’s pricing structure. The frame uses mostly plates to give it the triangular shape. Underneath the frame, there’s a bar that has the thrusters as well as the stud-shooting gatling guns on the front. You can shoot the studs by turning the thrusters on the back.
The cockpit area only has enough room for Rocket which he stands in since he uses the short legs. Behind the cockpit are some cannons which are spring loaded missiles.
Overall, I think the LEGO Marvel Rocket’s Warbird vs. Ronan (76278) is a decent set and you can finally get the ship without paying secondary prices for the SDCC version. The pricing is a little higher than what it should be and what you get for it but what you get is a highly playable ship with some updated minifigures.
