A new Marvel Cinematic Universe cosmic starship is a cool piece for collectors, especially anyone who picked up some of the Guardians of the Galaxy LEGO ships, but both sets are really about the all-new minifigures. There are not only all-new key Marvel Comics characters joining the MCU in Thor: Ragnarok (Valkyrie, Hela, The Grandmaster, etc.) but there are new takes on established major players like the armor-clad Hulk who may be the single biggest highlight of the two sets, and of course, the updated Loki, Thor, and Banner figures.
