The Lego Group has unveiled its largest Marvel set. 

The Spider-Man 76178 Daily Bugle measures over 32 inches tall and includes 3,772 pieces, ComicBook.com reported on Monday.

The set features a skyscraper with a four-story interior with removable floors, roof, and facade. This gives you access to the offices of Peter Parker as well as other characters at the Daily Bugle. 

The 76178 Daily Bugle also includes 25 mini figurines, including Mysterio, Doctor Octopus, Venom, Carnage, Peter Parker, Aunt May, Gwen Stacy, Miles Morales, Ghost-Spider, Firestar, Spider-Ham, Betty Brant, Ben Urich, Robbie Robertson, Ron Barney, Bernie the Cab Driver, Amber Grant, Green Goblin, Sandman, and Spider-Man, according to ComicBook.com. 

Additionally, there are also five new mini figurines: Blade, Black Cat, Daredevil, Punisher, and, of course, The Daily Bugle Editor-in-Chief J. Jonah Jameson. This means that you can create endless stories from the Marvel Universe.

Pre-orders for the Lego Spider-Man 76178 Daily Bugle go live on May 26, with the general public having access as of June 1. Fans can expect to pay from $299.99. 

As the Lego Group gains continued attention for its ever-expanding range, Marvel also has been making headlines in recent weeks. Most recently, Marvel Studios introduced an Asian superhero, to be played by Simu Liu, in the upcoming film, "Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings." 

There was some criticism over the casting of comedian and rapper Awkwafina in the supporting role. Awkwafina has faced accusations of the cultural appropriation of Black culture and many critics on social media have taken issue with her adopting a "Blaccent." However, most of the response has been positive.

As part of a move to be more inclusive, Marvel Comic Books also announced in March that it would introduce a gay, teen Captain America. The new take on the classic superhero debuts in special comics released to mark the 80th anniversary of Captain America's first issue. The character, Aaron Fischer, will appear in “The United States of Captain America,” a series that teams up the previous iterations of Captain America as the quartet undertakes a quest to locate the hero's stolen shield.

Commenting on the new character, limited series artist Jan Bazaldua said in a statement, “As a transgender person, I am happy to be able to present an openly gay person who admires Captain America and fights against evil to help those who are almost invisible to society." according to Rolling Stone. "While I was drawing him, I thought, well, Cap fights against super-powerful beings and saves the world almost always, but Aaron helps those who walk alone in the street with problems that they face every day."
