Today we take a quick look at the contents of the LEGO promotional set 5008076 Marvel Taxi, a small box of 150 pieces which will be offered to members of the LEGO Insiders program from November 24 to 27, 2023 for the purchase of the LEGO Marvel set 76269 Avengers Tower which I spoke to you about yesterday.

We're not going to lie, this extension to be integrated at the foot of the diorama offered by LEGO in its big box at €500 looks a bit like content that the manufacturer would have finally decided to remove from the set 76269 Avengers Tower to make it a promotional product aimed at encouraging purchase.

The product is packaged in the small soft box, and a little ugly, reserved for promotional sets available via the LEGO Insiders program, the pieces are simply thrown into a resealable bag slipped inside the packaging and that's the cover of the instruction booklet which serves as the front of the box.

LEGO is expected to ship the two products separately, the LEGO Marvel set 76269 Avengers Tower being already packaged in a dedicated box which does not leave room to add this small box. So much the better for those who hate receiving sets crushed during transport.

The contents of the set are very quickly assembled with a yellow Tesla-looking taxi and four minifigs provided: Black Panther in a version already seen in the set 76212 Shuri's Lab (€9.99), two Outriders introduced in 2023 in the set 76247 The Hulkbuster: The Battle of Wakanda and a taxi driver who uses a very common head as well as the torso of Harry Potter delivered in the set 76405 Hogwarts Express Collector's Edition.

Note the presence of a cap bearing the Avengers logo identical to the one worn by Kevin Feige in the large set associated with this promotional product and the absence of stickers in this box, all the patterned elements being pad printed. The two windshields used by the vehicle are obviously a little scratched upon unpacking, no pleasant surprises there.

The good idea of ​​the product: the possibility of staging Black Panther on the roof of the taxi thanks to the transparent parts provided and the presence of supports for the two Outriders. This is in line with the possibilities for dynamic presentation of the different characters offered in the set 76269 Avengers Tower.

It will be up to everyone to see if they should fall for the LEGO Marvel set 76269 Avengers Tower from its launch at the public price of €499.99 to be offered this little extension which should have been in the box or if it is better to try to obtain this set via the secondary market which should not fail to be quickly flooded with proposals.

The content of this promotional product therefore seems rather convincing to me overall with four figurines provided, no stickers and a little construction, it's up to you to see if all this is enough to make the pill pass more easily.
