It looks like the leaky faucet is at it again. We’re now getting new information from brick street and it seems that we now have our first look at a new LEGO tie-in set that focuses on Marvel Studios’ second MCU film of the year. Check out the box art image of the LEGO Marvel Shang-Chi Battle at the Ancient Village (76177).
Just to be accurate, this particular image was shared over at Instagram and does not feature any confidential watermark, suggesting that this was not lifted from any preliminary catalog. The following image also suggests that it was taken from the set’s actual box art suggesting that the set might be already in the wild, or tucked away in any third-party LEGO reseller warehouse. In any case, if the LEGO brick police should request us to remove this image, we will comply promptly.

And with those things out of the way, check out this first box art image of the LEGO Marvel Shang-Chi Battle at the Ancient Village (76177) set.
If you recall, Shang-Chi is this year’s second MCU film for the big screen. The movie is slated to be released this July, and seeing this set out in the wild given at this time does not come so much as a surprise. For starters, we already have the LEGO Marvel Black Widow’s Helicopter Chase (76162) released last year, and this is even way before we have the Black Widow film making its theatrical entry this May. So seeing this LEGO Marvel Shang-Chi set at this point is somehow expected.
The Battle at the Ancient Village (76177) set features a dragon in a white and red color scheme, on what seems to be a portal of some kind. The brick-built dragon itself is central to the set and features some of the distinct Asian features of this mythological creature. According to sources, Marvel Studios’ Shang-Chi will most likely introduce these mystical creatures in the MCU multiverse including the extraterrestrial villain Fin Fang Foom.
The LEGO Marvel Shang-Chi Battle at the Ancient Village (76177) is rumored to retail for $40 – a pretty steep price considering its modest size. However, it comes with five minifigures which include Shang-Chi, Xialing, Wenwu (or the Mandarin as the legendary leader of the Ten Rings), the enigmatic Death Dealer, and a figure of a still to be revealed creature named Morris.
Since this is out in the wild already, we can cross our fingers and hopefully see this set’s official images anytime soon. Let us know what you think about this set in the comments section below.
