In our last post (which was also our first post on this site), we reviewed The Hulkbuster Smash-Up #76104 set. You can check out that review here. Today, we’re taking a look at the Thanos: Ultimate Battle #76107 set.
You can pick up #76107 on Lego.com for $69.99. However, I was able to get the set on sale on Amazon for $55.99. So, obviously, I would go there (if it’s available in your country) for the lower price and the fast shipping.
We did a timelapse build of this set on our YouTube channel and if you want to check it out, you can either go directly to our channel or scroll down to the bottom of this review as it is embedded below.
Also, if you want a chance to win this set, we are giving it away—along with The Hulkbuster Smash-Up—to one winner. You can check out our giveaway page for details on how you can enter in to win both of those sets. But, with all that being said, let’s take a look at what the Thanos: Ultimate Battle set has to offer.
What You Get With Thanos: Ultimate Battle #76107
The Thanos: Ultimate Battle #76107 set comes with 674 total pieces and includes the following four minifigures:
- Iron Man
As I mentioned above, the original retail price of the Thanos: Ultimate Battle set is ~$70. And, while I think the set is a decent value at that price, at the $55 I was able to pick it up for on Amazon, it’s obviously a much easier recommendation at that lower price.
While I think the Guardian’s Ship is the main reason behind the higher original ~$70 price tag, I think the biggest selling point of this set is the fact that you get a Thanos big figure and the Infinity Gauntlet to go with him.
But, let’s dive a little more into the minifigures that come in this set…
Again, the standout figure in this set—and perhaps one of the main reasons to pick this set up—is Thanos (and his Infinity Gauntlet). As should be expected, Thanos comes in a big figure form, which puts him at about twice the size (at least, height-wise) as a standard minifigure.
Along with the Infinity Gauntlet—which has six total slots for the six different Infinity stones—the set also comes with the red Reality stone (the five other Infinity stones can be acquired through different Infinity War LEGO sets), as well as a large sword.
The other minifig that I really liked in this set is the Iron Man figure. The Iron Man in this set is a step above your ordinary minifigure as it comes with four wings that attach to the over-the-neck back-piece. Iron Man also comes with a bunch of “Power Burst” elements that can be added to his wings and/or hands. And, in my opinion, the coolest feature of this Iron Man minifig is the fact that he has a flip-up helmet that allows you to see his face even when his helmet is on.
The other minifigures in this set—Star-Lord and Gamora—aren’t bad. For Gamora, there really isn’t anything over the top can be done for her. And, the set does come with three extra swords for her. For Star-Lord, though, while the minifig is decent and it does come with two quad blasters for dual-wielding, unfortunately, it does not come with a helmet.
Still, though, with this set, you get two pretty standout figures (Iron Man and Thanos) and two decent minifigures as well. So, probably not much to complain there in the grand scheme of things.
Infinity Gauntlet Stand
The set also comes with a stand for the Infinity Gauntlet. For me, I probably won’t use the stand much, but it is a nice option for anyone that likes to put their sets on display.
The stand can also fit inside of the back of the spaceship as well.
The Guardian’s Space Ship (The Benatar)
Along with Thanos, the main selling point of #76107 is the large spaceship it comes with. In Infinity War, the Guardians have apparently upgraded their ship over their ship from the previous two films, The Milano. Their new ship is dubbed, The Benatar, which is named after Pat Benatar, most likely because of Peter Quill’s (Star-Lord) love for music from the 70’s and 80’s.
The ship is very well done and was a bit larger than I was expecting. It comes with a cockpit that can be opened both by the transparent window on the front and at the base of the cockpit as well.
Inside the cockpit, you can fit the included space scooter, which can hold two minifigures and up to four weapons (Gamora’s swords and Star-Lord’s quad blasters.)
The ship also comes with two stud shooters on the top of its wings and the ends of the wings are adjustable.
You can also open the rear of the ship as well and inside of the compartment at the back of the ship, there are two seats available.
One cool feature of this ship is that it can be combined with the Escape Pod from Thor’s Weapon Quest #76102. This lines up with how in the movies the Guardian’s get separated upon Thor’s arrival. But, if you want to get the whole gang back together, this set, along with #76102 will allow you to do so.
Overall, while I think most people will be excited to get this set for the Thanos bigfig, most will be very happy with how the spaceship turned out.
Is the Thanos: Ultimate Battle Set Worth It?
While the original price tag of $69.99 feels a little steep for this set, the Thanos bigfig is likely worth paying a little extra to get. However, as I’ve mentioned above, you can now get this set for ~$55 on Amazon and, at that price, this set seems like a steal for what you get.
From Thanos to the Infinity Gauntlet to the upgraded Iron Man minifigure to the large new spaceship (The Benatar), this set is a must-have for fans of the Marvel franchise and the latest Infinity Wars movie.
The Gamora and Star-Lord minifigures aren’t going to blow you away as they are just standard minifigs with weapons (a sword for Gamor and quad blasters for Star-Lord). But, other than the fact that Star-Lord doesn’t come with a helmet or jetpack, there’s not a whole lot you can do to make those characters into over-the-top minifigs like you can with Iron Man (or, someone like the Falcon, which was included in the last set we reviewed.)
All-in-all, though, I think that most LEGO enthusiasts and Marvel fans will enjoy Thanos: Ultimate Battle because of the inclusion of the Thanos bigfig and I think that the fact that the spaceship exceeds expectations and that the set comes with three other minifigures, makes this a really nice set all-around.
