Further Clarification on LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Ant-Man Final Battle (76039) Issue

There are some more details coming out of Reddit regarding a problem with the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Ant-Man Final Battle (76039). As you can see from the image above, there are two different instructions for the same step in building the ant’s legs. The top is the updated version which also includes pairs of pins and cones to add on to the legs for more stability. This is probably the reason why [email protected]icon has the set listed with 195 pieces instead of the 183 when it was first released.

The OP also stated that both boxes where identical and that there was no sign of them showing the 12 extra pieces except when opened so I assume LEGO is just using the same boxes that list 183 pieces and adding a bag with the additional pieces with the new instructions which saves the company some money by not remaking the boxes. If you’re one of the people who don’t have the updated Ant-Man Final Battle (76039), I suggest contacting LEGO customer support to see if you can get the extra parts.

Updates to the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Ant-Man Final Battle (76039)

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Ant-Man Final Battle (76039)

Yesterday, there was a report that come out of some issues with the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Ant-Man Final Battle (76039) which was first reported by Brick Fanatics. There is now some clarification on what that issue was about. A couple of our readers who have purchased the set early contacted LEGO customer service and this was one of the responses:

LEGO felt the set was not up to standards in terms of the legs so they are adding 12 pieces total to the set, 2 for each leg. So Stephen at the Brick Show was correct.

They have pulled the sets back. They will be issuing new boxes with updated piece counts, the additional pieces and new instructions.

They are mailing me the additional pieces + 1 new page of instructions.

Another reader notes:

According to the representative, the issue with the set was an error in the instruction manual. The original design did not call for a cross-axle where the legs meet the torso, and the instructions reflected this preliminary design step. They delayed the set so they can fix the instructions page to reflect the final design of the build. There is absolutely nothing wrong with any of the pieces, or the quality control of the printing in the set, it is simply a problem with the instruction manual.

He also said that it’s more than likely that any sets that are popping up in stores are the ones that have already been fixed.

So it seems now there are conflicts with … Continue

Reports of Quality Control Issues with LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Ant-Man Final Battle (76039)

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Ant-Man Final Battle (76039)

There’s something interesting that came by this morning by our chums at Brick Fanatics regarding the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Ant-Man Final Battle (76039). To summarize, a reader emailed in saying that LEGO has found an issue with the set and as a result, “all orders being held until this is rectified. Currently we envisage all deliveries happening mid June.” There was no mention of what that issue was.

Some of us in the States have already found the Ant-Man Final Battle available for purchase at various Toys R Us stores. One of our readers has purchased the set and noted that “the connector piece for the thorax is really too weak to support the bulk of the build.” They also note that his LEGO Store employee said that it “wasn’t up to quality control standards.” I even reached out to the Brick Show since Stephen did a review on it and he noted that the legs would sometimes fall over if not positioned correctly. I’m not sure if those particular things are what LEGO is referring to but it seems that it’s a wide spread problem if the company has stopped orders because of it.

What does this mean for collectors who already bought one of these early sets before the official release date of June 1st? They could be similar to what people who collect sports cards call error cards which have an unintended flaw to them and may become more valuable in the future. If you did purchase one of these early sets, … Continue

LEGO Marvel’s Ant-Man Set Details

There’s a new report on ToyArk which gives some details of the LEGO Marvel’s Ant-Man set that will be released this summer. Fair warning, what you read next may contain movie spoilers.

The set is called Final Battle (76039) which is priced at £19.99 and it includes the minifigures of Scott Lang/Ant-Man and Hank Pym as well as a brick-built winged ant. It also was stated that Pym wears a suit like Ant-Man. Keep in mind that the person supplying the information did not get a good look at the set so some details may be left out. Obviously, there are some details missing like if a Yellowjacket minifigure would be included since he is the main villain of the movie. Hopefully we get more details at the 2015 New York Toy Fair in a couple of weeks.
