One of the most hyped LEGO Marvel sets of the year is the upcoming 76218 Dr Strange's Sanctum Sanctorum and thanks to Promobricks.de we now have even more information. This will be a brand new Sanctum Sanctorum, much bigger than the previous versions but based on two different Marvel films. 76218 will be a crossover between the new Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness film and the Avengers: Infinity War film.
The set itself will be very similar to last year's 76178 Daily Bugle and can even be connected to it like the LEGO Icons modular line. The new Sanctum will also be on a grey 32x32 baseplate just like the Daily Bugle. However, it won't be as tall as the Bugle as it's only three storeys high (ground floor, first floor and attic) but it will easily be the most detailed Sanctum so far with each level being detachable.
As the Sanctum is a corner building, it is surrounded by two 7 studs wide walkways. There's also another section outside of the sanctum of a 6 stud-wide courtyard meaning that the actual Sanctum Sanctorum building itself is 25 studs wide x 19 studs deep. But there are still many details directly in front of the main building of the set.
There are two trees, a fire hydrant, a mailbox and a lantern all located in front of the Sanctum. Meanwhile, in the backyard is a large yellow dumpster and some brick-built cardboard boxes. The back of the house is decorated with various graffiti and posters including a poster of Nick Fury a drawing of the symbol of the ten rings and a large billboard advertising the new Captain America exhibit at the Bricksonian Museum.
On to inside though, on the first floor, there's a magical portal on the wall from which Garganots protrudes. The monster can either look outwards or inwards but only his eye and some tentacles can be seen. There's also a door which contains a backdrop which can be swapped out with two others using a hidden sliding mechanism in the wall.
Meanwhile, the ground floor offers relatively little space as the grand staircase dominates the room. Underneath the stairs, however, is a hidden room where the time stone is kept. In the attic, there are lots of books, treasures and other curiosities that also expand across other floors.
The Minifigure selection is also very exciting as nine Minifigures will be included in the new Sanctum. These are Doctor Strange, Sinister Strange, Zombie Strange featuring a third eye, Karl Mordo in a green outfit and Scarlet Witch. Meanwhile, the Infinity War selection of Minifigures includes Wong, Ebony Maw, Iron Man in his Mk 50 armour and Spider-Man.
