It’s been awhile since I’ve watched any of the Marvel movies where the Tesseract was a key element in the plot. But I guess at some point Thor had to bust it out of a pile of rocks, or at least that’s what today’s polybag, 30163 Thor and the Cosmic Cube, would have me believe.
There’s rock formation with a simple lever that rotates the Tesseract into view. Doing so is suppose to knock off this rock, simulating an explosion. In case that wasn’t an obvious thing to do, the picture on the polybag demonstrates that exact action.
The rock that comes off is anchored down on a single point on a jumper plate. The exploding action is quite satisfying as it sends the rock flying off with a surprising amount of velocity. It’s a neat gimmick and pretty fun to play around with.
Thor has a double sided head and there it is.
That pretty much is the review there. It’s a bit light, I mean there’s only Thor and this small rock formation. You’d think maybe this was a way for LEGO to just sell Thor without landing on Hasbro’s radar for infringing on their action figure license or something.
Does It Suck or Does It Rock?
This set rocks! I can imagine someone out there that may just be a casual avengers fan that may just want to get a Thor minifigure with Mjölnir and not have to pay a whole lot of bucks to get it. Well, that’s where this polybag can fulfill that guy’s wish. Even if this is your first, second, or eleventh Thor, the exploding rock action is kind of fun. And for that, I’ll give it a thumbs up.
