Whilst Benedict Cumberbatch’s superhero debut is set to release later this year in October’s Doctor Strange, fans have been offered a glimpse at the medicinal magician’s LEGO counterpart, in some recently released images of the upcoming Sanctum Sanctorum set.
As revealed by Amazon Japan (via. Gizmodo), the set resembles the New York home of the film (and comic books)’s protagonist, Stephen Strange. The Seal of ancient triad, the Vishanti is visibly plastered across the magical doctor’s window, whilst a discontented monster invades the seen through the portal to the right. Judging by the creature’s tentacle-y appearance, the demon appears to be Shuma-Gorath, though the colour choice is displayed as red here, in contrast to the demonic overlord’s usual greenish hue.
The set’s box art was also shared, depicting a majestic Doctor Strange minifigure (complete with Cumberbatchy facial design), along with Baron Mondo and a fan-wielding Ancient One, who’ll be played by Chiwetel Ejiofor and Tilda Swinton respectively in the film.
According to a commenter on Gizmodo, the minifigures also possibly come with clear pieces fixed to their feet, allowing them to be attached to look as if they’re floating.
Doctor Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum will be available in early August this year. A set description was also recently released, detailing some of the features the set is expected to include.
Doctor Strange hits UK cinemas on October 28 2016, releasing a week later in the USA on November 4 2016. The film will star Benedict Cumberbatch Chiwetel Ejiofor, Tilda Swinton, Mads Mikkelson, Rachel McAdams and Michael Stuhlbarg. An official trailer was released back in April, which you can find here.
