THE 76145 ETERNALS AERIAL ASSAULT REVIEW
We are thrilled to be given early access to review the LEGO sets for the MARVELS Eternals movie. We will start off with the most affordable set of the wave, 76145 Eternals’ Aerial Assault. Priced at USD 9.99, we have no doubt that many will pick this up come October which will be the global launch date for all the sets.
The Marvels Eternals film will be released in early November as part of Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The boxart is pretty eyecatching with the whole wave having a similar design concept, the Eternals main cast is pictured on the front top right of the box and the minifigures included in the set are named and placed at the bottom right. This particular set can fit into the palm of your hand!
Contents for this set is simple, there are two packets of bricks, a sticker sheet and an instruction manual. The entire brick contents are in the third picture.
Apart from the minifigures, there is the only printed piece, used for the mandible of the Deviant. We are not sure why this particular piece was chosen to be printed while other graphics used on a similar brick are made with stickers instead (perhaps this piece will be used in multiple sets?)
A bunch of anchovy/ikan bilis looking transparent satin blue pieces are also included
The only build of the set is a winged Deviant. The anchovy looking pieces are used for the fins of the wings. We believe that this Deviant is the one that appears from the water from the Eternals trailer. This build is highly poseable with articulation for the arms, hands and legs and light enough to be placed in most poses without it toppling over.
Two Eternals are included in this set, namely Sprite and Akaris
Out of the four sets in this release, Sprite (played by Lia McHugh) is only available in this set while Ikaris (played by Richard Madden) will make an appearance in 2 other sets. The details of the Eternals cloths are very intricate. There is no arm printing for both minifigures.
The set also came with a selection of weapons. The “fire elements” are tied to Ikaris in the instruction manual while the golden sai and katana were random inclusions (Are these part of a family mold with the golden claws?)
As a USD 9.99 set, you can’t go wrong. The inclusion of two licensed minigures (inclusive of an exclusive) sweetens the deal. We give this set a solid 4/5 rating.
