By the, err, bricky hosts of Hoggoth, it’s a Doctor Strange Lego set! It’s pretty nifty, but there may be more going on here than meets the eye (of Agamotto).


Amazon Japan has unveiled pictures of the set, unsurprisingly dubbed “Doctor Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum.” It stylizes itself as a little recreation of Stephen Strange’s magical New York pad, right down to the seal of the Vishanti across his window, and the... large angry looking tentacle demon? You can’t really trust what happens in the Lego sets to happen in the film, but a spell going awry leading to demonic shenanigans doesn’t seem that out of place.

The box art confirms something intriguing, though—Doctor Strange (who has Benedict Cumberbatch’s cheekbones painted onto his face, because how else would you tell it’s him in Lego form?) and Baron Mordo are joined in the set by Tilda Swinton’s Ancient One—not, perhaps as you might have expected at first glance, Strange’s servant Wong. And she’s swapped her fancy robes for glowy fans and... dungarees? And what appears to be some sort of flick knife attached to her foot? (EDIT: Commenter Quint points out that, sadly, it is in fact a clear piece for figures to be attached to to look like they’re floating. Boo!)


God, if anything makes it from this set into the film, let it be that. Please. The set will be available in early August.
