MARVEL's ANT-MAN scored big this summer by becoming the first true "family film" in the MARVEL Cinematic Universe. I covered the film extensively, interviewing the entire principle cast (including Paul Rudd, Evangeline LillyCorey StollMichael DouglasT.I., Michael Pena and David Dastmalchian), Director Peyton Reed, and MARVEL Studios Chief Kevin Feige. In speaking with all of those folks, I had to talk toys - and the one thing that really stood out is how excited Paul Rudd, Corey Stoll and Michael Douglas were about getting the LEGO treatment. Out of all the toys and collectibles that hit stores this summer, it was becoming a LEGO Minifigure that truly made some eyes light up. Released as part of the LEGO MARVEL Super Heroes line, the ANT-MAN FINAL BATTLE is a terrific, 183-piece set recommended for ages 6+, and one that lands as a featured pick in my 2015 Holiday Wish Guide at THE ROCK FATHER Magazine.
