For Marvel fans, Thor’s Hammer presents an interesting collectible. The size of it alone makes it a great display item. However, the build looks equally interesting. Even non-Marvel fans will enjoy the brick selection in this kit. Look at all those grey 6×6 plates! What do you think of Thor’s Hammer? Are you worthy of handling Mjolnir?

Until next time,
