LEGO is hyping up the highly-awaited premiere of Spider-Man: No Way Home with the unveiling of its latest offering: an enormous 3,772-piece set of the famous Daily Bugle building.

The toy company's “intricate” recreation of the iconic newspaper building is by far the tallest Marvel set LEGO ever created, which stands at 82cm tall. The latest standalone piece has a total of three floors and also includes a front street and a back alley.

Inside, the ground floor entrance can be arranged to make it look like an explosion has taken place while the newsroom on the first floor comes with a variety of office furniture and equipment.

Next up, the second floor features a hovering Green Goblin while Doctor Octopus can be seen hanging on the top floor, where Betty Brant and J. Jonah Jameson's offices are located.

Since the whole set is also modular, fans can remove the walls and floors of the building to recreate their favorite scenes from the franchise.

Aside from the "incredibly detailed" Daily Bugle building, the newest LEGO set also comes with 25 minifigures from the Spider-Man franchise including the web-crawler himself, Miles Morales, Gwen Stacy, Venom, Carnage, Green Goblin, J. Jonah Jameson, Punisher, as well as exclusive minifigures of Blade and Daredevil.

“I was seven years old when I was given my first Spider-man comic and I have always had an image of creating a LEGO model of the Daily Bugle and having Spidey and his Amazing Friends in conflict with his various enemies,” LEGO set designer Mark John Stafford said in a statement.

“One of my favourite elements is the Green Goblin flying inside the building through the window. Being able to design a moment of frozen action like this in a LEGO set has always been a dream and I finally got to make it happen!” he added.

The LEGO Daily Bugle building set goes on sale on June 1 for $300 (P14,363).
