In the past, LEGO sets promoted in advance of various superhero movie releases have done a fine job of spoiling major details. Chief among them, of course, was The Amazing Spider-Man‘s Lizard-laden third act that saw that flick’s primary antagonist turn a SWAT team into reptile-human hybrids.
Well, as it turns out, that proud tradition is seemingly continuing with the highly anticipated Avengers: Infinity War. This time, though, we’re thankfully not seeing any plot points laid bare, but a new costume to possibly be worn by the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s ultimate evil may have just been unveiled thanks to some collectibles.
By now, you’ve probably seen countless memes lampooning Thanos for not wearing his familiar headgear. In fact, fans have been joking about him looking like everyone from Pawn Stars host Rick Harrison to Homer Simpson. Needless to say, we hope that he finds the right haberdasher soon enough.
Thanks to Super Bro Movies, we’ve now been given a look at a LEGO figure depicting the Mad Titan clad in a helmet and costume somewhat different from we’re used to seeing, but more familiar than what the trailer and promotional images have thus far shown us. And seeing as how other characters such as Black Panther, Captain America and Black Widow accurately reflect their next cinematic appearance, we’re inclined to believe that Thanos could very well don the gear he’s pictured in above.
Actually, we were provided with a hint that he’d be granted a new lid earlier this month, but given the lack of great detail on LEGO figures, it’s difficult to tell if it’s the very same example. That said, we’ll cross our fingers hoping that images of premium collectibles find their way online before Avengers: Infinity War arrives in theaters on May 4, 2018.
