Action figures and toys are notorious for spoiling blockbuster movies, so fans looking for clues as to what to expect from Avengers: Infinity War should check out images of several new LEGO sets for the film that feature the Avengers, Guardians of the Galaxy, Thanos, the Black Order, and more.
Avengers: Infinity War, a film that's been hyped as the biggest MCU movie to date, is expected to serve as "the final chapter" for many MCU characters as they face off against Josh Brolin's Thanos, a character who has been described as the "biggest and baddest" villain in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Aided by the Black Order, Thanos will lead a hunt for the six Infinity Stones so that he can assemble the all-powerful weapon, the Infinity Gauntlet. The Avengers, the Guardians of the Galaxy, Spider-Man, Black Panther, and Doctor Strange will have to team up to stop him from destroying the universe.
Official images of five new LEGO sets for Avengers: Infinity War that could potentially spoil which characters will appear in certain key scenes in the film. The sets match the descriptions of the ones that were leaked in December. "Outrider Drop Ship" features Steve Rogers and Black Widow and reveals another look at the four-armed aliens known as the Outriders, who were briefly seen in the trailer. The second set, "Thor's Weapon Quest," teams Rocket Raccoon and Groot with the God of Thunder, armed with his new weapon, Stormbreaker.

"Corvus Glaive Thresher Attack" introduces Corvus Glaive, a member of the Black Order. Corvus Glaive can be seen using his double-bladed weapon in a battle against Vision, Black Panther, and Shuri. "Hulkbuster Smash Up" sees the return of Age of Ultron's Hulkbuster as it takes on Proxima Midnight. Proxima Midnight's movie look was previously revealed in promo art and with the release of a new wave of Marvel Legends figures. Also included in this set are Bruce Banner, the Falcon, and an Outrider.
"Thanos: The Ultimate Battle" seems to tease the film's final showdown. We can guess from the set that Gamora, Star-Lord, and Iron Man will make it into the big fight with Thanos. "Sanctum Sanctorum Showdown" has Cull Obsidian (known in the comics as Black Dwarf) attacking Doctor Strange's home. The Sorcerer Supreme is joined by Iron Man and Spider-Man.
Release dates for these sets have yet to be announced.
