A couple of days ago, LEGO fan forums were set into a frenzy once more when an image of the instructions booklet for the much awaited LEGO Marvel Superheroes Doctor Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum surfaced over the internet. Featuring three new minifigures based on Disney and MCU’s upcoming Doctor Strange movie, the set depicts a battle scene against what seems to be a tentacle monster inside the mystical abode of the Sorcerer Supreme. As it seems, the image was leaked and the TLG immediately when into collateral damage control mode and had the image taken down. However, if you’re raring to take a peek on how it looks like, I believe Price Vortex maybe of help.
Frankly speaking, it will be better to wait until the official images are released so we can have a better look at what the set has to offer. Surprisingly, shop.lego.com has recently updated their database to include the official set description of 76060 ahead of its official images. Here’s what it says:
LEGO Marvel Superheroes
Doctor Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum 76060
Pieces: 358; Price: $29.99
Banish the portal beast from Doctor Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum!
Team up and expel the portal beast from Doctor Strange’s mysterious headquarters with some super-heroic supernatural action! Fend it off with Doctor Strange’s mystical artifacts, and evade being captured by the portal beast’s tentacles using the cape of levitation. Send in Karl Mordo to battle the beast with his quarterstaff, and help The Ancient One strike with the powerful magical fans at her fingertips!
Includes 3 minifigures: Doctor Strange, Karl Mordo and The Ancient One.
Doctor Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum features a portal beast with rotating teeth, moving eyes and tentacles that can trap minifigures, shelves for mystical artifact accessories, levitation effect for 2 minifigures, and levitation function for Doctor Strange’s cloak.
Weapons include Karl Mordo’s quarterstaff and The Ancient One’s magical fans with eldritch calligraphy.
Accessory elements include Doctor Strange’s cloak of levitation and magical power elements with eldritch calligraphy markings.
This set offers an age-appropriate building experience for ages 7-14.
Sanctum Sanctorum measures over 4” (11cm) high, 12” (31cm) wide and 7” (18cm) deep.
As the description suggests, 76060 likely depicts a crucial plot scene in the upcoming MCU film, ‘Doctor Strange’, which is slated to hit theaters on November 4, 2016. LEGO’s August 1 release date for 76060 is somehow odd given the potential spoiler that it may reveal ahead of the film’s theatrical release.
We’ll keep you posted on the latest development surrounding this set, considering that official images of 76060 may most likely appear anytime soon. Be sure to stay tuned here at the Brick Show!
