LEGO have released two tie-in sets for Thor: Ragnarok as part of their summer 2017 releases. Both sets are mid-range in terms of pricing and absolutely excel in the minifigure department.

The first set ‘The Ultimate Battle for Asgard’ focuses on Thor and Bruce battle with Hela and her forces while defending Asgard and features a 6 minifigures plus a buildable wolf. It also comes with a small Commodore spacehip.

The second set ‘Thor vs. Hulk: Arena Clash’ recreates the most exciting scene from the Thor: Ragnarok trailer wherein Thor takes on Gladiator Hulk in the Grandmaster’s Arena. This set also comes with some arena scenery and a total 4 minifigures plus the Gladiator Hulk bigfig.

My opinion is that these sets will be a minifigure collector’s dream, they’re choc-a-bloc with brand new sculpts and characters and it’s difficult to deny how epic the Gladiator Hulk bigfig is. The issue I have with these sets, is that other than the minifigures I don’t feel they offer a lot to display or play with. Combine that with the RRPs and it may prove to be a difficult purchase for some collectors.

You can find all the information you need about the new sets below, enjoy!
