When LEGO reveals polybags tying into major themed releases with box sets, we tend to assume the polys are promotional. So when a LEGO Marvel polybag with an “Avengers: Endgame” theme was revealed on the heels of the movie tie-in announcements, we began waiting for a promo date and the minimum purchase needed for it.
We can probably stop waiting and start combing Wal-Mart stores now. They’ve started stocking their shelves with the LEGO Avengers: Endgame Iron Man and Dum-E (30452) polybag. First revealed on social media last month, we now know a bit about the story behind Tony’s suit.
For those who have seen the latest “Endgame” trailer, we see the surviving Avengers and other heroes dressed in this uniform white-and-black ensemble. It might serve as a sign of solidarity considering how much they’ve already lost to Thanos. This has yet to explain why the Dum-E robotic arm is in the 30452 poly though.
If you need a refresher, Dum-E was prominently featured in the first “Iron Man” film. You’d remember his as the foam-sprayer during Tony’s Mk-II armor tests, and helped created the new arc reactor element in the sequel. What’s he going to be doing in “Endgame”? We’ll learn on April 26.
Seeing as this is a poly, Iron Man and Dum-E (30452) will take effort to track down with all the Wal-Mart stores about. Not all of them might be carrying it too. Interested collectors would have to be upfront in asking the store staff if they’re carrying this $3.99 polybag.
