This little set packs a big punch, and that’s not referring to the Mech’s gloved hand!
For a small £8.99 (RRP) set you get a fair amount of pieces, 152 in fact.
The main build:
Crack open the box and out slide 3 numbered bags, usual for a set of this size.
Bag 1 consists of the main torso build and the Thanos Minifigure itself, which we’ll look closer at later in the review.
Bag 2 is the right arm and thighs, this is where all 4 stickers are applied, 2 to the upper arms, and 2 to the thighs. All 4 stickers are identical.
Bag 3 finishes off the Mech; feet and legs, and left hand with Gauntlet complete with Infinity Stones. Sadly the Stones are just transparent coloured tiles instead of the gem-like ones we’ve seen in the past.
The Right hand, with the Gauntlet, is quite a lot larger than the left hand. Granted it’s meant to be as its technically a glove. Just looks a little too big in my opinion. It does however have great articulation, which means you can grab objects and Minifigures more realistically!
We’ve only ever seen Thanos represented as a Bigfig, so seeing him shrunk down to Minifigure size is a tad strange I must admit.
The printing is done well as usual and consistent with LEGO’s quality. In the right light it gives off a nice golden shimmer.
Thanos comes with a gold helmet which suits him. He can however remove it and use the figure without it as it looks just as good.
Overall it’s a great little set, well worth the £8.99 price tag. Playability is great, specially with the added articulation in the fingers. Construction of the Mech is very straightforward and simple.
Spare pieces include a full set of Infinity Stones (tiles)!
