The Avengers: Infinity War Lego Sets Have a Gauntlet’s Worth of Infinity Stones – Chip Chick

The Avengers: Infinity War Lego Sets Have a Gauntlet’s Worth of Infinity Stones

It’s our favorite brand of moderate spoilers — official Lego sets! Every time a huge-budget movie is about to come out, Lego unloads a bunch of really sweet sets that also happen to give hints, if not straight up revelations, about what happens in the movie. Infinity War is, unsurprisingly, no different. Over the weekend, Lego started selling six sets ahead of the movie, each with one of the Infinity Stones that fit into the gauntlet — despite the fact that they haven’t all been seen in the movies yet!

So, perfunctory spoiler alert: there’s nothing that shocking here, but if you’re super concerned about spoilers, maybe take a hard pass on looking at these sets anyway. Otherwise, enjoy — the sets also cover most of the heroes, all of Thanos’s Black Order squad, and a comically oversized Thanos minifig (maxifig?).

Outrider Dropship Attack

This set includes a fold-out Outrider dropship manned by two of the four-armed troublemakers. Looks like Captain America and Black Widow are on the scene, with the Cap minifig getting a beard head element, absolutely the real prize here. Looks like this set features the Tesseract, which seems odd! Pretty sure Thanos jacked that stone from Loki off-screen, so it’ll be interesting to see if the stone really does end up being transported by a pair of scrub henchmen for some reason. Seems unlikely!

Thor’s Weapon Quest

We know from the trailers that at some point, Thor gets way out there in space and makes something involving a big blue light show. Speculation has been that with Mjolnir destroyed, he’s getting Jarnbjorn, the axe he’s wielded before in the comics. This set very much supports that theory. The Thor minifig (with alternate glowing blue eyes!) is joined by Groot and Rocket Raccoon, who we know he’ll meet after meeting the Guardians’ windshield. Looks like the Orb has a part to play in making Jarnbjorn, so the Guardians must recover it somehow in Infinity War.

Corvus Glaive Thresher Attack

In this one we’ve got the first of the Black Order and the favorite of Thanos, Corvus Glaive. He’s the dude that sends those Outriders riding out, so it’s no surprise he’s got one in tow here. Looks like him and a big buzz saw launcher are coming at Wakanda, which means we get appearances from Black Panther and an extremely cool Shuri minifig (there just weren’t enough Lego sets for Black Panther). The Vision is here, too, probably because the Mind Stone in his head is forcibly extracted in one of the trailers.

The Hulkbuster Smash-Up

Here’s where things get interesting. This set includes the Soul Stone, which has not made an appearance in the films yet. Wherever it is, it looks like Hulk could be involved in the fight for it — the set includes an awesome buildable Hulkbuster armor, plus minifigs for Bruce Banner, Falcon, an Outrider, and another member of the Black Order, Proxima Midnight.

Thanos: Ultimate Battle

Giant Thanos minifig! This set also includes the gauntlet that ties the whole series together. It’s also got the Guardians flying in, with Star-Lord and Gamora meeting Iron Man in whatever sweet new armor Tony Stark has cooked up for this outing. Thanos already has the mysterious Reality Stone in the gauntlet, so I guess we don’t need to debate who has ownership of that one. Sure enough, there is space on the gauntlet for all six of the Infinity Stones, which can only be collected and assembled by buying all six sets. Seems like Thanos has to go through a lot more trouble to get them all.

Sanctum Sanctorum Showdown

And, last but not least, Black Order members Cull Obsidian and Ebony Maw pay a house call to Doctor Strange, who along with Iron Man and Spider-Man will try to protect the Eye of Agomotto and its Time Stone from being pilfered. This looks like one of the coolest of the six sets, combining the Sanctum Sanctorum with Peter Parker’s apartment in one block loaded with details.
