This new LEGO set allows you to wield Thor’s power

Want to know whether you’re worthy enough to wield the power of Thor? Get ready to do just that in the comfort of your own homes because starting March 1, LEGO will let you lift the Mjölnir with this all-new LEGO Marvel Thor’s hammer set.

In celebration of Marvel Studios’ Infinity Saga, toy company LEGO is back with the life-size version of Thor’s magical weapon Mjölnir. In celebration of Marvel Studios’ Infinity Saga, toy company LEGO is back with the life-size version of Thor’s magical weapon Mjölnir. In Marvel Cinematic Universe films, Mjölnir was a powerful war-hammer given to Thor by Odin to help the former channel his godly powers. The enchanted hammer can be seen alongside Thor as his primary weapon during the battle of New York (The Avengers), the battle of Greenwich (Thor: The Dark World), and the war against HYDRA (Avengers: Age of Ultron). The hammer was destroyed in 2017 by their sister Hela (Thor: Ragnarok).

Five years after the Snap, Thor and Rocket Raccoon traveled in an alternate version of 2013 at Asgard to retrieve the Aether, one of the Infinity Stones (Avengers: Endgame). There, Thor also summoned Mjölnir, and he and Rocket went back to their original timeline along with the stone and hammer. In the battle against the alternate version of Thanos, the hammer was used both by Thor and Steve Rogers/Captain America to attack Thanos and his army. After the battle, Rogers returned Mjölnir and the Aether to its proper timeline in Asgard.

Throughout the MCU franchise, only three characters had lifted Mjölnir: Thor, Vision (Avengers: Age of Ultron), and Captain America (Avengers: Endgame).
