LEGO DC Superheroes 76002 Superman Metropolis Showdown

This is my first LEGO Superheroes set. I saw this LEGO Superman on Amazon and decided to give it a try. And I have to say that I have enjoyed it a lot, I wasn’t expecting such a nice set.

Model background

Stop General Zod with Superman!

General Zod is wreaking havoc in a downtown Metropolis Showdown against Superman. Stop General Zod from trapping Superman under the collapsing antenna tower by blocking it with the cool yellow car. Battle as you take Superman up the tower, flip him through the air with the catapult function and swing him on the antenna. Includes 2 minifigures: Superman and General Zod.

Model Box

It is a small box for such nice set… this is the front.

And this is the back of the box.


Two manuals.

Building experience

It is a small model to build but the car is quite a experience in itself. It isn’t complex to build but it looks quite well done once build… not like other cheap LEGO cars… yes, I am talking about you LEGO Train Station Taxi!

Here is the timelapse building and videoreview

Complete model




The car is really good looking although it has only room for the pilot.


This set comes with two minifigs: Superman and General Zod

Building experience
Value for money


– Nice and the car looks fantastic.


– Maybe a bit small and simple.

Does LEGO 76002 worth the money?

I have mixed feelings. Get it if you are a fan of Superman or if you love the car.
