As we count down the days to Marvel’s
LEGO has been a surprising sources of good Marvel tips over the past few years, so we’ve decided to take a closer look at their latest range of super cool LEGO Super Heroes
The Space Stone
The first set has one of the most anticipated minifigs of all time: sexy beard Cap, and boy does Steve look good. “The Outrider Dropship Attack” set includes bearded Captain America, two nice new Wakandan shields, Black Widow, two of what LEGO calls “Outriders,” and their “dropship.” The Outriders are the beastly four-armed aliens Cap and T’Challa fight in Wakanda during in the
The Outriders’ inclusion makes a lot of sense, as in the comics they report to Corvus Glaive, one of the Black Order—Thanos’ children. This tells us one very specific thing about
At the end of
The Power Stone
The second set features Thor, Rocket Raccoon, and Teenage Groot in “Thor’s Weapon Quest”! This holds just as many exciting secrets as the Beard Cap set, revealing another Infinity Stone and giving us insights into what Thor and the Guardians will be up to! The set comes with a purple “Infinity Stone element,” none other than the Power Stone a.k.a. the Orb. We last saw the Orb in the hands of the Nova Corps, so we can assume the Guardians either stole it back or maybe they gave the Nova Corps a fake, which seems like a very Star-Lord thing to do.
We know Thor will end up with the Guardians, and the escape pod you can build in this set actually connects to the larger Guardians’ ship, part of the “Thanos: Ultimate Battle” set. So it’s pretty likely that Thor, Groot, and Rocket will attempt to abscond with the Power Stone whilst the rest of the Guardians of the Galaxy battle Thanos.
The Mind Stone
Our third set, “Corvus Glaive Thresher Attack,” includes one of the most exciting team-ups thus far, as we find Vision, Shuri, and Black Panther facing off against Corvus Glaive and one of his alien Outriders in Shuri’s lab. Shuri was a standout character in the fantastic
The Time Stone
The fourth and largest set is the “Sanctum Sanctorum Showdown,” a huge New York block that consists of both Doctor Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum and Peter Parker’s apartment! Continuing our theme, it includes the Infinity Stone that we know is held in Strange’s Eye of Agamotto—the green Time Stone—and it also confirms that once again the Big Apple is likely be ravaged by the Avengers and their foes. In this expansive and intricate set, we see Peter in his officially titled “Iron Spider-Man” suit, already teased at the end of
The Reality Stone
A shocking reveal awaits in the “Thanos Ultimate Battle Set”! If we’re to believe the fine folks at LEGO, then Thanos already holds the Aether a.k.a. the Reality Stone, yet to be shown in any MCU film in its proper solid form. But this set includes the Infinity Gauntlet, which already holds the red Reality Stone! The fact that this rad set includes the Gauntlet with spaces for each of the other gems suggests that Thanos will get his wish and unite the gold glove with its shiny stone pals. This set also includes the Milano ship, Iron Man in a very fancy new suit, Gamora, and Star-Lord, from which we can glean that the final battle will likely take place in space, seeing the Guardians and Iron Man teaming up to take on Thanos!
The Soul Stone
But “The Hulkbuster Smash Up” set might include the biggest
The orange Soul Stone is the only Infinity Stone we’ve yet to see. If you’ve delved into the T.H.A.N.O.S. theory, you’ll know that each stone has been found or held by someone/something with a letter corresponding to the Mad Titan’s name: Tesseract, Aether, Necklace, Orb, and Scepter, with only that pesky “H” unaccounted for, leaving many fans to assume that Hela would wield the Soul Stone during
Phew! So that sure was a ride, that taught us a whole lot about the direction
