As a belated reward for publishing Steel Justice, I treated myself to a reward over Labor Day weekend by finally building Doctor Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum. I adore the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but since I prefer building ships and buildings versus dioramas meant for younger LEGO fans, there’s not much in that theme for me. Thus, I snapped up this set when it was released. It’s definitely an “easier” build than the sets in my Creator Expert neighborhood and is not at the same scale, but I did enjoy the little details included in Doctor Strange’s New York City lair, Peter Parker’s apartment, and the necessary NYC pizza shop.

Sanctum Sanctorum Showdown (76108) — 1,004 pieces

This set is very much intended as a “play” set for younger builders, based on some build details (such as removable walls as casualties of battle) rather than strictly a display set. However, I’m more than happy to add it to my collection.
