For those of you who don't know, I'm a big Lego fan. And I'm also super hyped for Avengers: Infinity War. The Lego sets for the upcoming film have finally been officially revealed.
Warning: The following Lego sets may contain spoilers for Avengers: Infinity War. Read at your own risk.
76101 Outrider Dropship Attack
Minifigures: Captain America, Black Widow, Outriders 2x
Infinity Stone: Space Stone
This is the smallest of the bunch, containing a small ship with four Minifigures. What's most intriguing is the presence of the Space Stone, since it was seen in Loki's possession and later Thanos' in the trailer. The ship isn't anything special and doesn't have many features, but I love the new Captain America and Black Widow.
76102 Thor's Weapon Quest
Minifigures: Thor, Groot, Rocket
Infinity Stone: Power Stone
Like the last set, the figures are great, but the build itself is pretty average. I love the teenage Groot and new Thor, and since I missed the Guardians 2 sets, I don't mind the reused version of Rocket. The ship is cool, and it has a feature I'll explain later. The other build is just a small thing used to make Thor's new axe, Stormbreaker, which belonged to Beta Ray Bill in the comics.
76103 Corvus Glaive Thresher Atttack
Minifigures: Corvus Glaive, Vision, Black Panther, Shuri, Outrider
Infinity Stone: Mind Stone
This one isn't too much of a spoiler, as we already know that the Black Order is after Vision from the first trailer. But I doubt that's where he meets his end, since in the Superbowl trailer, we see him walking without the stone in his head. The wall looks like part of a building in Wakanda, particularly a medical hall. I guess this is some time before the Outrider invasion, since the sets aren't always accurate.
76104 The Hulkbuster Smash-Up
Minifigures: Bruce Banner, Proxima Midnight, Falcon, Outrider
Infinity Stone: Soul Stone
I think this set confirms that the Soul Stone is in Wakanda and that Bruce Banner is piloting the Hulkbuster instead of Tony Stark. The upgraded Hulkbuster looks better than the Age of Ultron version, which I didn't get. Falcon is the same as he was in the Civil War line except for his wings, which look better.
76107 Thanos: Ultimate Battle
Minifigures: Thanos, Iron Man, Star-Lord, Gamora
Infinity Stone: Reality Stone
Definitely my favourite of the line, althought I'm getting all of the sets. Iron Man's suit looks so damn cool, and although I have my problems with Thanos, I still like the way he looks. The Infinity Gauntlet is included, and can actually hold the Reality Stone as well as the other Infinity Stones from the other sets. Gamora is another new figure, and, like Rocket, Star-Lord is the same as from the Guardians 2 line. The ship included is actually not the Milano, as it was destroyed in GotGV2. It's the Ravager ship the Guardians got at the end of the movie, and it looks dope. It can connect to the ship from the Thor set.
76108 Sanctum Sanctorum Showdown
Minifigures: Doctor Strange, Iron Man, Spider-Man (Iron Spider suit), Cull Obsidian, Ebony Maw
Infinity Stone: Time Stone
This is my second-favourite of the line (why does Iron Man always come in the best sets?). The Minifigures are great, even though Iron Man doesn't have his jetpack from the Thanos set and the Iron Spider doesn't have any printing on the sides of the legs, and I love that new hair piece on Doctor Strange. The actual build itself is one of the best from any Lego Marvel set, being overstuffed with play features like collapsible windows and a web from which my boi Spider-Man can swing.
So overall, I like this line. I'm getting all of the sets because I'm so excited for the movie. Here's how I rank them from worst to best:
6. Thor's Weapon Quest
5. Outrider Dropship Attack
4. Corvus Glaive Thresher Attack
3. The Hulkbuster Smash-Up
2. Sanctum Sanctorum Showdown
1. Thanos: Ultimate Battle
