LEGO Sanctum Sanctorum Showdown comprises a new Marvel Super Heroes set to tie in with the new 2018 Marvel Movie Avengers Infinity War.
The set includes just over 1,000 pieces to build a New York City Building that includes Dr Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum, Spiderman or Peter Parker’s apartment and Pepe’s Pizza Restaurant. It also comes with mini figures which we’ll discuss later.
You have the building flat, in an L shape or closed so that The Sanctum Sanctorum is back to back with Peter Parker’s apartment and the Pizzeria. The building is hinged which makes it great for playing and display.
The outside of the building includes a side street with some web related Spiderman details including a web that can be grabbed by a figure that knocks a window out. There is a fire escape that can be raised and lowered.
On the roof is a water tower and button function, you can attach a winch to a mini figure and lower it to the sidewalk.
Exactly what is the LEGO Sanctum Sanctorum Showdown?
This is a 3 level building where Doctor Strange hangs out and it’s full of little details including a chest that opens to reveal weapons, a bookcase that holds a hidden Infinity Stone and an exploding wall feature. There are spares of the Infinity Stone just in case you lose them.
Spiderman Peter Parker’s Apartment
Peter Parker spends most of his time here when he’s not out fighting crime with the Avengers as Spiderman. His apartment includes his bedroom area and a modest detailed office. The bedroom has a trap door and also another exploding window function.
Pepe’s Pizzeria is a fast food restaurant located under Peter’s apartment. It includes a pizza oven and a buildable Shawarma station and lots of other detailed accessories. Once again this one has an exploding window as well.
What mini figures are in LEGO Sanctum Sanctorum Showdown box?
The set comes with 5 figures.
Dr Strange– is a well detailed figure and does a good job of resembling the character from the movies and comic book. He is wearing his cloak of levitation and has the trademark white streaks in his hair.
2. Iron Spider – Has a sharply printed costume and is a new look for the Avengers Infinity War Movie with this gift from Tony Stark that makes him look a lot more spider like. He also comes with a power blast weapon.
3. Iron Man – the Iron Man MK48 costume looks a bit different from previous version and we like it a lot. His visor can be removed or lifted to reveal the face of Tony Stark.
4. Ebony Maw – the first of the two villains included in this set. Ebony Maw is an alien and one of the Black Order.
We don’t want to give away too many spoilers so watch the film to find out more.
LEGO has done a reasonable job of recreating him as a mini figure for this set. Like Iron Spiderman he also has a Power Blast weapon.
5. Cull Obsidian – Is a menacing looking mini figure carrying dual hammers. He is another of the Black Order. In the comics he has fought with the Guardians of the Galaxy and Black Panther.
Final thoughts on the LEGO Infinity War Sanctum
If you’re into LEGO as well as super heroes then this would make a nice set to display or play with. It has a good amount of functionality and accessories for hours of play and the mini figures have plenty of detail. The LEGO Sanctum Sanctorum building is simply another great set from LEGO.
