"A lasting reminder of an epic saga - Marvel enthusiasts will recognize this authentic recreation as Mjölnir, the magical weapon used to devastating effect by Thor throughout Marvel Studios' 23-movie Infinity Saga."
The near-life-size model is currently available for pre-order on their official site and will also exclusively retail at Target stores.

Pre-orders for the Mjölnir set began on February 1 and are currently limited to two units per customer. As per the firm's official online store, the set will ship from March 1. It is expected that Target will retail the product around the same time.

The set comes with 979 pieces and will be around 18-inches high with the included stand. As per the dimensions in the official site, the Mjölnir will be 11.6-inches wide. The stand incorporates a crystal and stone-like appearance with the Lego pieces. It includes a display plate, which reads: "THE INFINITY SAGA, MJÖLNIR," along with the brand logos.

These models can be placed on the main stand plate of the model or can stand together on a separate tile.The Thor Hammer set also comes with a miniature model of the "God of Thunder" himself.
According to the promotional pictures of the product, the mini Thor model has his own little Mjölnir and comes with his Asgardian armor design from MCU's Phase-1 movies. Currently, the building difficulty of the set is unknown, as the building instructions are not available yet. It is expected to be updated on their site in mid to late February.
