It was only a matter of time before we got this building as part of the Marvel LEGO collection. Dr. Strange may not be many people's favorite superhero in the franchise, but there is no doubt that he has played a pivotal role in a lot of recent movies. So, it is no surprise to see the grand Marvel Sanctum Sanctorum 76218 Lego Set set on sale.
Build The Impressive Sanctorum From All Angles And Levels
A lot is going on with this set, making it a more challenging large LEGO set for adults. For a start, we're looking at a full 360 model of a 3-story building. The finished set comprises 2708 pieces and measures 32cm high, 31cm wide, and 26cm, deep. This means not only creating the different interior levels in detail but taking the time to work on the exterior and street scene from all angles.
That exterior is a big selling point and gives the set that initial wow factor when showing it off to other fans. You get to craft all the brickwork, windows, and other fine details from the ground up, ending in that beautiful roof and skylight. The street below isn't too complicated in its design, with just enough context with the base plate, lights, dumpster, and other New York must-have features.
When we get inside the building, we find three levels with their own purpose and characteristics. Many fans will feel that the middle level is the most interesting. This is the library that contains portals to other worlds. This not only allows for greater creative play but involves some clever interactive elements to reveal the portals. Above this, you have the museums of collectibles, full of interesting accessories and details. Again, this can help propel any storyline and adds to the fun of building this grand building.
Dive Into Stories From The Avengers And Dr. Strange Movies
The best way to engage with these creative storytelling elements is to have suitable minifigures, and this set offers plenty. There are 9 in total, taking us between the Infinity War and Multiverse of Madness movies. Classic characters include Doctor Strange himself, Wong, and Master Mordo, there are also the Sinister Strange and Dead Strange variants, as well as Avengers characters in The Scarlet Witch, Spiderman, and Iron Man.
With more than 2000 pieces to put together, this 360-degree Marvel Sanctum Sanctorum 76218 Lego Set is an impressive undertaking and a labor of love. But, there is no doubt that it will prove to be a much loved addition to a collection.
