Big shout out to Brickset for bringing the first images of the new LEGO Thor: Ragnarok sets due out later this year inline with the release of the highly anticipated third installment of the Marvel Thor franchise – Ragnarok.
LEGO Thor: Ragnarok The Ultimate Battle for Asgard 76084 is the first set of two supporting the new movie. The set includes 6 x minifigures (Hela, 2 x Berserkers, Valkyrie, Bruce Banner and Thor), Hela’s attacking force and a ringed vehicle piloted by Valkyrie. I think the star of the show for this set will be the minifigures, as sadly the builds disappoint a little and leave you feeling flat. It’s a shame when you consider how beautiful Asgard is that some build elements didn’t make it into this battle scene. So far only pricing information is in Euros (49.99€).
Rounding up the the release is LEGO Thor: Ragnarok Thor vs. Hulk Arena Clash 76088 and is the larger of the two sets. The set includes 5 x minifigures (large Hulk, Thor, Loki, Sakaarian Guard and Grandmaster) and a nice simple but effective Arena surround. Again the set comes with some fairly awesome minifigures, but the Arena build is still noteworthy and compares well to the Arena seen in the movie trailers so far. As before pricing information is in Euros (49.99€).
I think the sets will do well and if priced reasonably will tempt me, but only for the awesome minifigure lineup.
Now back to eagerly awaiting for the Movie – only 6 months to go!
