An Essential Set
" This set is critical as it contains Thanos himself with his Gauntlet, and the Guardians' new spacecraft, the Benatar. I do enjoy the comic-style Thanos as opposed to what he could have looked like if his design was based on the movie. The "butter knife" was unnecessary and went straight into my spare parts bin. The set contains possibly the best LEGO interpretation of Iron Man, with a great looking jetpack and Tony's faces blanketed in blue light: an instantly recognizable nod to the movies. This Star-Lord was identical to the one in Ayesha's Revenge, which is fine with me, but my only complaint is that none of his faces feature his signature helmet, which is pretty disappointing. Gamora was well designed; no worries about that.
As for the Benatar itself, it's one of my favorite LEGO Marvel vehicle interpretations, with such character, you can personify this ship as one that is adventurous yet humble. And it's exactly that: with unique angles and interesting connections, some of the ideas in this build left me wondering why I didn't think of them earlier.
My mod for this set included changing the seat count from four to six by adding two benches in the back, which was wasted as a space for the "captured" Gauntlet, which is not plot relevant to Infinity War. I also added a primary booster, missing in the set but present in the movie, to the abrupt "wall" where Thor's Weapon Quest is supposed to connect. The photos below are of my mods, not of the original set (sorry for bad quality and the first one not being upright)
In conclusion, this set provides exceptional build-and-play for youngsters and makes an eye-catching display piece for older fans, although not 100% relevant to Avengers: Infinity War.
