LEGO Marvel summer 2022 set rumours include Baby Groot build
New rumours for LEGO Marvel in summer 2022 have surfaced, including a Baby Groot figure and more details on the reported Sanctum model.
Promobricks is reporting to have information for an upcoming wave of LEGO Marvel sets based on the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including more potential details on the Sanctum Sanctorum modular building.
The rumour suggests that the summer of LEGO Marvel in 2022 will be focused entirely on superhero films, including current and previous movies from the MCU. The first of these is said to be Iron Man 2.
76216 Iron Man 2 Workshop
According to the source, 76216 Iron Man 2 Workshop will depict a third follow-up model to 76125 Iron Man Hall of Armor and 76167 Iron Man Armory, but based on the Iron Man sequel rather than the Avengers films. They believe that the model will be marketed under the Infinity Saga range and include 496 pieces for €89.99.
The set is rumoured to contain eight slots for suits of armour, the armour testing platform, a desk and chair and a workbench as well as a recreation of an Audi R8 Spyder. When it comes to minifigures, 76216 is said to feature Whiplash, War Machine, Pepper Potts, Tony Stark, Nick Fury and the Mark four, 25 and 85 Iron Man suits, though the source isn’t certain on that last armour.
This set is reported to release on June 1, 2022.
76217 Baby Groot
Ready to compete against 75318 The Child for the title of most adorable LEGO set, 76217 Baby Groot is rumoured to launch on June 1, 2022, and depict the infant version of the Guardian of the Galaxy. As a reminder, Disney+ will see the arrival of I am Groot starring Baby Groot and it is expected to be available later this year.
The source notes that the build is believed to be similar to 76206 Iron Man Figure with poseable limbs and a rotating head. Notably, the model is rumoured to include a brick-built version of the Awesome Mix Vol. 2 tape, bringing the reported piece count to 476 for €49.99.
76218 Sanctum Sanctorum
Following previous rumours, Promobricks reports that 76218 Sanctum Sanctorum will launch first in May, with a wider release in August and be based on the upcoming Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness movie. Adding to the initial report, the source believes that the set will include Doctor Strange, Wong, Scarlet Witch and Karl Mordo as minifigures as well as a version of Spider-Man and Iron Man and three more minifigures.
Rumours suggest that 2,708 pieces will make up a three-storey build of the Sanctum Sanctorum as a 32×32 stud corner building designed to fit in with other modular creations such as 10297 Boutique Hotel or even 76178 Daily Bugle. Outside the Sanctum is said to be two trees, a lantern, a post box and a fire hydrant.
