By Grabthar’s hammer—hold on, that’s not the right reference. I guess I’ll just cut to the chase; LEGO just opened pre-orders for its Thor’s Hammer kit. The 18-inch-tall Mjölnir model comes with a classy information display and includes a bundle of cute miniatures, including a mini Infinity Gauntlet.
The 979-piece kit is part of LEGO’s Marvel model series, which includes killer products like the Venom bust and the full-sized Infinity Gauntlet model. It’s an accurate recreation of the real Mjölnir hammer, with a belt loop and weighty design.
Plus, the Thor’s Hammer set comes with a Thor minifigure and miniaturized versions of Odin’s Fire, Tesseract, and the Infinity Gauntlet. These small pieces can tuck into the hammer through its sliding side door, which is a bit odd, but still kind of neat.
I should also mention that this set is intended for adults. Children can assemble it with some help, but it’s not exactly an entry-level LEGO kit.
You can now pre-order the Thor’s Hammer LEGO set at Target or the LEGO website. It costs $100 and ships March 1st. Ordering the set through LEGO’s website gets you 650 VIP points, by the way.
