The first-ever LEGO playset based on Marvel Studios' X-Men '97 arrived. 

Set to release on Disney+ in early 2024, X-Men '97 isn't just a revival of X-Men: The Animated Series but the mutants' first official project within the MCU

While LEGO has already released X-Men '97 sets, including a Wolverine Construction Figure and Wolverine's Adamantium Claws, this is the show's first playset and is directly inspired by the 2024 series, not the comics.

What LEGO's Magneto Minifigure Means

LEGO has a long-standing history of releasing sets ahead of a show or film, offering fans previews of what's to come

In the case of this first official X-Men Disney+ playset, fans are getting a close-up look at the mutant's preferred method of travel, the X-Jet. 

What's particularly notable about the set is Magneto's Minifigure. Not only is he without his signature helmet, but in the coming show, he's expected to take over for Professor X as the team's reported new leader

How this role reversal plays out is one of the fans' biggest questions heading into X-Men '97, and it will be interesting to see how he's presented in further merch and marketing ahead of the show's debut.
