LEGO Spider-Man

LEGO Spider-Man Minifigures

Before the beginning of the 2011 LEGO Super Heroes line that included famous characters from both the Marvel and DC Universe, before LEGO Batman sets were released from 2005 to 2008 and culminated in LEGO Batman The Videogame, there was LEGO Spider-Man. From 2003 to 2004 LEGO created Spider-Man Building Sets for the Movies Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2, starring Tobey Maguire. Although MEGA BLOKS would acquire the licensing rights for Spider-Man from 2006 to 2011, LEGO would gain them back in 2012. LEGO would secure the rights to many of Marvel Comics superheroes and join them with DC Comic heroes in a new theme called Super Heroes.

Spider-Man’s First Chase

Item #: 4850
Released: 2003
Ages: 6-12
Pieces: 191
Minifigures:

  1. Spider-Man (Wrestling Suit)
  2. Highway Patrolman
  3. Uncle Ben’s Killer


This LEGO building set recreates the scene in the Spider-Man movie when Peter Parker is chasing after the robber who just shot his Uncle Ben. Although you will have to provide your own buildings to swing from, the set includes a police car and Ben Parker’s stolen automobile to chase after. It also has a fire hydrant, trash can and gate to crash into and add some dynamic action sequences. Neither of the cars have working doors, so Spider-Man will have to use his super strength to tear the person out of their seat.

Spider-Man and Green Goblin: The Origins

Item #: 4851
Released: 2003
Ages: 7-12
Pieces: 218
Minifigures:

  1. Spider-Man
  2. Peter Parker (Yellow Head)
  3. Mary Jane Watson (Green Shirt)
  4. Green Goblin
  5. Norman Osborn (shirtless)
  6. Scientist


This building set could have been named Oscorp, because it creates two rooms within the company. These two sets do not connect because they represent parts of the building and not joining rooms. The first room represents the public lab where Peter Parker was bitten by the spider that gave him super powers. The lab even comes with 5 colorful spiders. The room is the secret lab where Norman Osborn and his scientist were working on a military serum for the government. This is where Norman Osborn would use himself as a human guinea pig and transform into the Green Goblin (hence his minifigure not having a shirt). The containment chamber spins so you can recreate the transformation before your very eyes.

Spider-Man vs. Green Goblin: The Final Showdown

Item #: 4852
Released: 2003
Ages: 8-12
Pieces: 360
Minifigures:

  1. Spider-Man
  2. Green Goblin
  3. Mary Jane Watson (White Suit)
  4. Taxi Driver


It makes sense to have the largest building set for the first Spider-Man movie be based on the final battle. This set has lot of fun features for you to stage your own epic showdown. A New York bridge would not be complete without a taxicab and the sky tram moves. You will have to supply your own tram victims for Spider-Man to make his hero’s choice (Don’t worry, the other sets have lots of victims for you to use). The tram and bridge can also be rebuilt to create a cable train.

Spider-Man’s Street Chase

Item #: 4853
Released: 2004
Ages: 6-12
Pieces: 73
Minifigures:

  1. Spider-Man
  2. Jewel Thieves (2)


The Street Chase building set was based on Spider-Man 2, but since it recreates a jewelry heist with the thieves trying to escape, it could be from any movie, cartoon or comic book. There is a small diamond store for the crooks to pull of their heist and as the title says the rest of the set pieces are built around the chase. The robbers have a three-wheel motorcycle and skateboard to try to outrun our webslinger. (Not sure why one of the robbers would choose a Spider-Man designed skateboard?) There is also a street lamp and ramp for the crooks to jump off of.

Doc Ock’s Bank Robbery

Item #: 4854
Released: 2004
Ages: 7-12
Pieces: 174
Minifigures:

  1. Spider-Man
  2. Doc Ock
  3. Aunt May
  4. Security Guard
  5. Highway Patrolman


Every superhero needs to stop a bank robbery and this building set recreates the scene where Doctor Octopus robs a bank, so he can rebuild his fusion energy machine. The set includes a police car, a three-wheeled motorcycle and the bank itself. In typical LEGO fashion, the bank can be assembled into a couple different designs so the builder can decide which structure they like best.

Spider-Man’s Train Rescue

Item #: 4855
Released: 2004
Ages: 7-12
Pieces: 299
Minifigures:

  1. Spider-Man (Dark Blue)
  2. Doc Ock (Angry Face)
  3. Subway Train Conductor
  4. J. Jonah Jameson


J. Jonah Jameson might not have been in the train rescue sequence for the film, but since this is the scene where we witness the public accept Spider-Man as a hero instead of the menace J.J. and his newspaper would have you believe, it was the perfect set to include him in. The train can be catapulted from one end of the track to the other, where it will be caught by Spider-Man’s webs. You can also rebuild the set into a train stop with an old time handcar.

Doc Ock’s Hideout

Item #: 4856
Released: 2004
Ages: 8-12
Pieces: 486
Minifigures:

  1. Doc Ock (Smiling)
  2. Spider-Man (Dark Blue)
  3. Peter Parker
  4. Mary Jane Watson (Sweater)
  5. Harry Osborn (Blue Suit)


With over 480 pieces, this would be the largest Spider-Man LEGO building set release during its short lived run. It recreates the warehouse that Doc Ock used to continue his experiment. For our final battle, Harry Osborn races to the scene in a speedboat and Spider-Man can be launched from a catapult. The roof and side doors come apart so you can recreate the end explosion without having to break the LEGO bricks apart yourself. Of course, you still can if you are feeling extra destructive.

Doc Ock’s Fusion Lab

Item #: 4857
Released: 2004
Ages: 7-12
Pieces: 237
Minifigures:

  1. Doc Ock (Fusion Lab)
  2. Spider-Man (Dark Blue)
  3. Harry Osborn (Grey Suit)
  4. Ambulance Driver


Just like the first film had an origin building set, so does the Spider-Man 2 series. These models recreate the scene where the Fusion Lab Explodes and fuses Dr. Otto Octavius’s metal arms to his body. The Fusion Machine can be pressed down to launch Dr. Ock through the air. It also comes with an ambulance to take away the victims hurt in the explosion.

Spider-Man Combined Set

Item #: 65572
Released: 2005
Ages: 7+
Pieces: 1022
Minifigures:

  1. Spider-Man (3)
  2. Doc Ock (3)
  3. Peter Parker
  4. Mary Jane
  5. Harry Osborn (2)
  6. J Jonah Jameson
  7. Subway Train Conductor
  8. Ambulance Driver


A Product Collection Set packages several building sets from a similar LEGO theme together. This collection includes three sets based on the Spider-Man 2 movie; Doc Ock’s Fusion Lab 4857, Spider-Man’s Train Rescue 4855 and Doc Ock’s Hideout 4855. They can be a good way to build your collection quickly or buy several sets and save money.

Spider-Man 4+

The Spider-Man 4 Plus building sets were released for younger children. These sets revolved around the Spider-Man 2 movie. They contained larger pieces and the minifigures are constructed differently, to be safer for a younger audience who have a habit of sticking things in their mouth.

Doc Ock’s Crime Spree

Item #: 4858
Released: 2004
Ages: 4+
Pieces: 57
Minifigures:

  1. Spider-Man
  2. Doc Ock
  3. Policeman


This building set took a lot of liberties from the movie and definitely had a younger demographic in mind. There is a Spider-Man and Doc Ock character from the movie and then they go in a completely different direction. Spider-Man has his own helicopter, just like Batman, and Doc Ock is given a motorcycle. There is also a police motorcycle and bridge. You can create a create a great chase sequence, but think comic panel more than movie scene.

Doc Ock's Café Attack

Item #: 4860
Released: 2004
Ages: 4+
Pieces: 132
Minifigures:

  1. Spider-Man
  2. Doc Ock
  3. Peter Parker


This building set was based on the Ari's Village Deli from Spider-Man 2, when Doc Ock throws a car through the window and almost crushes Mary Jane and Peter Parker as they are sitting inside. The side of the building is designed to fall apart so you can reenact the the scene, but there is no MJ minifigure so you will have to get her from a different set. The building can also be rearranged into a gas station.

      I still play with the minifigures with these sets. Spider-Man 2's Spidey and Doc Ocks were fantastic, played with those for years. And the Green Goblin figure and glider were nothing to turn my nose up at either. Cool details.

      Thanks for the list. I liked being able to go back and look over these old sets. They're years old, but it's good to see there's see some interest.

      You are never to old for LEGOs! It can be fun to play with toys from our childhood. That is one of the reasons I love writing Hubs on LEGOs. It gives me an opportunity to relive the those childhood memories.

      Informative Hub! I love Lego, perhaps a bit too much for my age. When I was younger I had boxes upon boxes of the stuff, still hidden away up in the attic I believe. Your hub has made me want to rediscover it! Voted up.
