Designed with adult model makers in mind, Lego’s Thor hammer set is a lasting reminder of an epic saga that any superhero fan would be proud to put on display.

Measuring 46cm tall, the model is a challenging yet rewarding build that consists of 979 pieces and rests securely on a stand with an information plate.

An ideal collectable for Thor fans, there’s even more fun to discover inside the hammer once it’s been built as there’s a secret opening where you can store the extra goodies that come with it. The set comes with a small Lego minifigure of Thor holding his hammer, as well as three mini models of the infinity gauntlet, tesseract and Odin’s fire.

If you’re hoping to wield the mighty weapon, the bad news is that you’ll have a slight wait on your hands as the set isn’t available to purchase until Tuesday 1 March.

The perfect gift for nomads, Lego’s globe allows you to explore far-flung destinations from the comfort of your own home. Consisting of a massive 2,585-pieces, the set is a realistic, customizable brick-built Earth globe that features printed names of the continents.

But, that’s not all. It also shows the world’s oceans, which glow in the dark so you can display and see the world day and night. Plus, once built the model even recreates the spinning movement of a traditional globe – a first for a Lego globe of this scale.

Builders will also treated to a vintage-style ship and compass icons, which can attach to the globe, plus a “The Earth” nameplate that can be added to the base as the finishing touch to your display, which we think will make a worthy addition to any home.
