Great Greebles Ant-Man, Let’s Explore the Quantum Realm! [76109 Review and Competition]

In which I look at 76109 Quantum Realm Explorers and realise that not only does it have some great minifigures, but it also gives a masterclass in greebles! And there isn’t long to enter our Ant-Man Contest.

IMG_2708When the original Ant-Man film was released a few years ago, I missed seeing it at the cinema, and I missed getting hold of the single LEGO® Set related to the movie.  And as such, I missed out getting hold of an Ant-Man Minifigure.  A favourite figure amongst toy photographers, there are so many images of this figure exploring the world. A month or so ago I went to see Ant-Man and the Wasp.  It was an enjoyable film, full of humour, action and special effects.  I have finally got around to building the set, Quantum Realm Explorers.  You might have seen posts over the last few weeks, providing an opportunity to win this set in a building competition: I will come back to that later.

Quantum Realm Explorers was released in June 2018, and has 200 pieces, including 3 minifigures.  It costs $39.99AUD; or $19.99USD, 24.99€ or £19.99. 10c/part in the US, 10p/part in the UK, 12.5 eurocents/part in Germany and 20¢/part in Australia…
