76081 - The Milano vs. The Abilisk

11 posts in this topic

Coming Feb 17, 2017, available for pre-order now on Amazon.com. 460 pcs, 5 minifigs including Baby Groot! MSRP $49

So what do you think of this set?  Is it going to tank the value of my old 76021 Milanos (which were already having trouble moving up) ?  This new set has 200 fewer pieces than the old, yet size of the ship appears almost the same... maybe the new one is a little smaller, but not much?  Of course, Baby Groot steals the show.

If this is the only set with baby Groot, then it might have some increased value.

I am sure LEGO can figure out a way to put that figure in millions of polybags as promotional item :devil:

Another thing I like about this one is that - in the picture anyway - you can fit all five minifigs neatly facing forward in the cockpit area. It's a rare thing in a Lego set, and much nicer to display the ship that way.

Technically it is 4 minifigs + baby fig.  But I agree that it is rare and nice for them to have it that way.  Although I think Star Lord's jet pack needs to be removed for all 5 to fit

Coming to a clearance bin near you soon!

The last Milano (available for a limited time only) is still possible to find in shops here, just like it´s brother in arms 75050 B Wing.

Baby Groot also comes in 76080 ($29.99) so there goes that plus for set 76081

There has been a weird surge of tentacle monsters in LEGO sets lately.

Let's call them Graboids!

AhhHA!... But looking closer, 76080 Ayesha's Revenge has "frowny-face-baby-Groot-with-red-jumpsuit", 76081 Milano has "smiley-baby-Groot-naked"... they're different! :)
