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.
LEGO Releases First X-Men '97 LEGO Set
The 359-piece buildable jet has twin cockpits with space for four LEGO Minifigures.
In addition to two stud shooters on either side of the jet and two spring shooters under the wing, the X-Jet has two removable containers for storing spare studs and Wolverine's removable adamantium claws.
The X-Men X-Jet LEGO playset retails for $84.99 USD and is available for purchase on Monday, January 1, 2024.
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.
X-Men '97 arrives on Disney+ in early 2024.
