The up and coming LEGO set for Marvel Super Heroes’ Doctor Strange has been given a set description. According to the LEGO online shop (via. The Brick Fan), Doctor Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum will include minifigures for Doctor Strange, Baron Karl Mardo and The Ancient One, whilst a mysterious ‘portal beast’ was also alluded to.
The beast is described on the site to feature “rotating teeth, moving eyes and tentacles that can trap minifigures”, which suggests that the set could contain multi-limbed monster Shuma-Gorath.
