Comic-Con 2018: This Massive Lego Thanos Demands You Bow Before Him
I don't feel so good.
San Diego Comic-Con isn't just a place to check out the latest news from TV and movies. There are also plenty of booths on the show floor featuring over-the-top and impressive set pieces, statues, and more. It's all just trying to get the average con-goer to stop and pay attention. Over at the Lego booth (#2829), there is an impressive statue of Thanos from Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War.
In case you're one of the few people that didn't see Infinity War, Thanos, also know as the mad titan, is the central villain of the film who is ridiculously powerful thanks to his Infinity Gauntlet and the powerful cosmic stones on it. With these stones, he can do almost anything he can think of, even bend reality. Or he can transform into a Lego version of himself, which you can see below.
This impressive statue comes in at eight and a half feet tall and weighs 450 pounds. It took Lego master builders 418 hours to build this monstrosity. And in total, over 91,000 bricks were used in the construction of Thanos. While it may look exceptionally cool in the photos, it doesn't do the construction justice or show just how massive this piece is.
Avengers: Infinity War is Marvel's highest grossing movie to date, bringing in over $2 billion at the box office. If you missed it in theaters, don't worry because the digital release is right around the corner on July 31. It will get a physical release on August 14 as well, and it is loaded with extras.
While Avengers 4 is shrouded in secrecy, we do know a few things about the upcoming movie, including that Drax will make his return. We won't get to see more of Thanos--in non Lego form that is--until Avengers 4, when it hits theaters on May 3, 2019.
