Doctor Strange’s aperture science

This is a triumph! I’m making a note here, this Marvel-ous Dr. Strange LEGO build by Josh Parkinson is a huge success! Inspired by the superhero’s latest movie, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, we see the wizened sorcerer about to hop into a portal to chase down impending (spoiler-free) doom. And what a portal it is! Adorned with twinkling lights, this mystical wormhole opens up to a lovely scene created using forced perspective. But there’s quite a bit of magic outside the portal, too. For instance, the shelves in the bookcase to the left aren’t actually being held in place by anything other than gravity. Each shelf sits on four tabs, each from this special 1×1 plate, much like your standard IKEA Billy bookcase. It’s such an interesting design hiding in plain sight.

LEGO Marvel 76216 Iron Man Armory [Review]

Iron Man 2 came out more than a decade ago. But the power of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is such that, even 12 years later, LEGO’s target audience can still be expected to have seen the film. At the time, LEGO didn’t do any real, specific tie-in for the movie. But they’re making up for that now with set 76216 Iron Man Armory. While this set draws from multiple of Tony Stark’s on-screen adventures, it’s got a definite preference for the Armored Avenger’s second cinematic outing. This 496-piece set will be available on June 1st from the LEGO Shop Online for US $89.99 | CAN $119.99 | UK TBD.

LEGO Marvel 76217 I Am Groot [Review]

Groot, the lovable living tree from the Guardians of the Galaxy series, was making baby versions of characters cool long before Grogu introduced the term “Baby Yoda” to the pop culture lexicon. As Rocket Raccoon’s loyal partner in crime, he steals scenes by just repeating the words “I am Groot” for all of his dialogue (and, let me tell you, the urge to turn in this review with “I am Groot” repeated over and over was strong). Now LEGO is releasing a 1:1 scale build of this extraterrestrial Ent in his youthful form so you can have a Baby Groot of your very own. 76217 I Am Groot is a 476-piece set releasing June 1st in the UK and worldwide August 1st for US $54.99 | CAN $69.99 | UK £44.99

I…am…Groot. (I had to get one in)

An Avengers vignette that leaves an impact

Can you believe Marvel’s The Avengers just turned 10 years-old? To celebrate the momentous occasion, Okay Yaramanoglu has crafted a vignette replicating the Battle of New York from the film’s third act. Everyone’s here, from Cap to Hulk, keeping the city safe from the Chitauri. (And if you look closely, you’ll even spot a cameo by a certain scribe of super heroic shenanigans, True Believer!)

Avengers: The Battle of NYC

But my favorite detail is the pavement that’s been cratered in by a good ol’ fashioned Hulk-stomping.

LEGO Marvel 76217 I am Groot revealed [News]

The next LEGO buildable character, Baby Groot, was revealed online just now. Arguably the cutest Marvel superhero stands over 10.5 in. (26 cm) tall, which is just a couple inches taller than another fan-favorite alien, Baby Yoda from 75318 set. The scene wouldn’t be complete without an iconic accessory from the Guardians of the Galaxy stories, so Groot comes with a 1:1 cassette build. Right now the set is available for pre-order for US $54.99 | CAN $69.99 | UK £44.99 and will ship from August 1, 2022.

LEGO Thor Love and Thunder 76207 Attack on New Asgard [Review]

This July, Thor Love and Thunder is bringing us two Thors for the price of one as Jane Foster returns with a godly upgrade to wield Mjolnir alongside our favorite Asgardian Avenger. Obviously, whenever a new Marvel Cinematic Universe movie is on the horizon, the tie-in LEGO sets can’t be far behind. And LEGO is starting off with two Thor sets for a two Thor movie. We’ve already peeped a look at set 76208 The Goat Boat. Now it’s time to tackle the smaller set, LEGO 76207 Attack on New Asgard. Is this a worthy companion to The Goat Boat? Or, like Thor: The Dark World, is this a part of the franchise best forgotten? This 159-piece set will be available on April 26th from the LEGO Shop Online for US $19.99 | CAN $24.99 | UK £17.99 .

LEGO Thor Love and Thunder 76208 The Goat Boat [Review]

This July, with the release of Thor Love and Thunder, Thor becomes the first individual in the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe to get a fourth feature-length film with his name in the title. But just because the Avengers aren’t around, it doesn’t mean Thor is flying solo. His longtime love interest Jane Foster will return to wield Mjolnir herself. At their side will be fan-favorite Korg and the king of New Asgard, Valkyrie. And they’ll all be up against Gorr the God Butcher who, I assume, will be looking to butcher himself some gods. That’s bad news for our favorite Asgardians. The good news is that Taika Waititi is back in the director’s chair, and it’s a safe bet he’ll be bringing the same blend of action and whimsy that he delivered in Thor Ragnarok. Who else would make a movie with as bizarre a tie-in set as LEGO 76208 The Goat Boat? But bizarre might be just what the doctor ordered after countless MCU tie-in sets featuring mostly SHIELD vehicles and spaceships. This 564-piece set will be available on April 26th from the LEGO Shop Online for US $49.99 | CAN $64.99 | UK £44.99.

Doctor Strange is in the house!

Experiencing dimensional infestations? Doctor Strange will make a house call to clear that right up for you! This magical LEGO build from Legomocs_501 went through a few iterations before this version emerged from the multiverse. What looks to be a normal house with a tall window quickly transforms, mirror dimension style, into a curving and broken walkway, sloping down towards grasping tentacles. The walls start peeling away until they’re but a memory to the dimensional rift threatening to consume the Sorcerer Supreme! The texturing on the wall fragments is very cool, achieved with plates and bricks of varying size. The grey plates bleeding down into the black of the base balance the sloping pathway by the tentacles. This keeps your eyes focused on the conflict between Strange and the intruding presence. This build captures the mind-bending nature of Doctor Strange and his adventures, making me all the more excited for his next on-screen appearance: Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness!

LEGO Marvel Superheroes 76209 Thor’s Hammer [Review]

Whosoever holds this hammer, if he be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor. That’s the inscription on Mjolnir, the powerful hammer that belongs to the Norse God of Thunder. Thor carried the weapon through almost every major conflict in the Marvel Cinematic Universe before its destruction in Thor: Ragnarok. But Mjolnir is set to return in a big way in the upcoming Thor: Love and Thunder, and LEGO is giving the hammer it’s due with set 76209 Thor’s Hammer. This 979-piece set will be available March 1st for US $99.99 | CAN $129.99 | UK £104.99. But is this set worthy? There’s only one way to find out. Like the Dwarves of Nidavellir, we have forged our own Mjolnir to carry into battle, and we’re going to tell you all about it.
