LEGO Doctor Strange Set Revealed & Photo! LEGO 76060

It’s actually taken a lot longer than I expected for the first image of the LEGO Marvel Doctor Strange set to appear. While the set was shown at the London Toy Fair in January 2016 (with photography forbidden), the Sorcerer Supreme was absent entirely at the New York Toy Fair 2016 in February. But it was only a matter of time until the Master of Mysticism made his brick-form presence felt, and the LEGO Doctor Strange 76060 movie set has now been revealed!

UPDATE: Images have been removed from the site as per the request of The LEGO Group.

When I read the first-hand account description of this fall’s Doctor Strange LEGO set from those who attended the UK Toy Fair back in January 2016, it sounded like all sorts of craziness abounded in the set. And now that I finally get to see the completed model for myself, well… the insanity factory sure doesn’t disappoint!

What we seem to have here is a portion of Doctor Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum (complete with a cool chest of weapons and artifacts, bookcase and summoning circle decal), along with an extra-dimensional portal ripping open on the far right wall and a tentacle creature tearing through reality. (Uh-huh.)

I began speculating that the tentacle monster might be an MCU version of Shuma Gorath (one of my favorite ┬ávillains thanks to the Marvel vs. Capcom series) when I first heard about this set in the winter, but now that I actually see the creature, I sure hope it isn’t.

Whereas Shuma-Gorath has always looked super-cool to me, this looks more like a dopey, random demon. This looks more like Fred from Big Hero Six to me than a credible monster, honestly.

Meanwhile, the set includes three Minifigures: a LEGO Doctor Strange Minifigure, along with LEGO Wong and Baron Mordo Minifigures. I believe this is the first time Wong has ever been released as an articulated figure ever, which I think is pretty exciting (and I dig Wong’s translucent LEGO fan pieces).

The Doctor Strange figure is obviously movie-styled, but it looks like it could double as a comic-based Dr. Strange LEGO Minifigure in a pinch easily enough–which is good, since I doubt we’ll be getting another anytime soon. I like his spell effects pieces, though I would have preferred them in pink (clear is good too, though, I guess).

This only photo of this set available right now is just the cover of the first instructional manual, so we still don’t know the official name, piece count or MSRP for this set. Even so, comparing it to comparably sized licensed sets, I would guesstimate a $29.99-$39.99 MSRP for LEGO 76060.

I’ll post an update once more specific details regarding the 76060 Doctor Strange LEGO set are known, including the official release date and pricing information, and you can follow the Marvel Toy News Twitter and Facebook Page to get updates via your favorite forms of social media. My best guess on the release window for this set would be August/September 2016 based off my own experience and intuition.

What do you think of our very first look at the inaugural LEGO Doctor Strange minifigure and his brick-built Sanctum Sanctorum, Marvel collectors? Is this on your must-buy list for later this year, or does the good doctor fail to impress you in his other-dimensional brick form?

  1. Is it possible that this is only part of the set, since they only are showing one manual.

    • Nope–the covers of the manuals always show the full set, and this matches the description for what was shown in London.

  2. That is NOT Wong, that is a female minifigure (look at the facial expression, Wong doesn’t wear lipstick), therefore it is the Ancient One (modeled after Tilda Swinton).

    Another reason we can be certain that isn’t Wong: the color of the minifigure’s clothing. Power Rangers got in trouble 24 years ago for making the Trini Kwan the Yellow Ranger, do you think it is wise to do something like that again, in a film already under fire for white washing the Ancient One?

    • Additionally, in the teaser trailer we saw The Ancient One using those exact magic fans to pull the soul out of Stephen’s body.
