We’re still just under six months away from the release of Thor: Ragnarok, but by the looks of [the teaser trailer that dropped last month], we’re in for one heck of a a ride. The footage we’ve seen so far looks amazing, and has the potential to be the best installment in the franchise to date. The color aesthetics and character designs were bright and colorful, and many of the set and action pieces looked like they jumped straight off of the classic Jack Kirby illustrations from the comics and onto the screen. We’re expecting to get a full-length trailer within the next couple of months, but until then, Lego has unveiled official images of two of their upcoming sets devoted to the film, giving us another look at a couple of key action scenes in the film. Spoiler warning: if you don’t want to see any potential spoilers for the film, don’t proceed past this picture of Jeff Goldblum.
Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, for those brave souls who have stuck with us, you can check out the images of the new sets in the gallery below!
The first set shown above is called The Ultimate Battle of Asgard, and includes minifigures of Thor, Hela, Bruce Banner, and Valkyrie, along with two Berserkers. The ship featured in the set seemingly belongs to Valkyrie, and was seen briefly in the aforementioned trailer. If you missed it, we’ll include a link at the end of this article (the ship appears briefly at the 1:02 mark). The second set, Thor Vs. Hulk Arena Crash, includes Thor, Hulk, Grandmaster, Loki, and a Sakaaran Guard. This gladiator match between the two Avengers appears to be one of, if not the biggest action pieces in the film, and while this set doesn’t reveal any new information about the scene, it still gets us excited to see the epic clash between the two former friends.
Given Lego’s track record, we understand that these sets aren’t always the most reliable sources of information for the films they’re based on. Some sets are released that have absolutely nothing to do with any actual scenes in the film, but these two seem to be legit. We’ve seen both of these respective scenes show up in the trailer, so we’re fairly confident that these two sets at least are indeed based on events in the film. There aren’t any confirmed price tags on either of these two sets, but given the number of pieces in each, we’re guessing that The Ultimate Battle of Asgard and Thor Vs. Hulk Arena Crash will run around $40 and $50 respectively.
Thor: Ragnarok is set for release on November 3, 2017.
