76103 The Corvus Glaive Thresher Attack Review!

Hey guys! Today I have another LEGO Infinity War set review! This is 76103 The Corvus Glaive Thresher Attack – a 416-piece set that retails for £34.99 (UK), $39.99 (U.S.), $59.99 (Aus), and $69.99 (NZ). Let’s check it out! The first minifigure we will take a look at is Black Panther. He is reused from 76100, which is kind of annoying as I don’t really like this minifigure. I think something nice would have been an unmasked Black Panther, maybe something like this (hehe). Up next is Black Panther’s sister Shuri. She was a fairly major character in Black Panther so it’s nice to get a minifigure of her. Her orange outfit actually looks accurate to what we might see in Infinity War, though her hairpiece is more like her hairstyle in Black Panther and less like the one in that picture. Oh well. You know, LEGO should make a new hairpiece for her that can be recolored in brown for Kaydel Connix from Star Wars. Anyway, I’m off topic. She has a couple of gauntlets which are good accessories – relatively accurate without making a new mold, unlike when they were used for Ulysses Klaue in 76100Up next is the mighty Vision, who unfortunately looks like he’s in trouble in Infinity War because of that Infinity Stone on his forehead. He’s reused from his Civil War appearance, but I think it’s not too grievous a sin as he’s quite a nice minifigure. However, I think he should have had a new head print without the Mind Stone in his head because the Mind Stone is included separately here. We now move on the villain of the set, Thanos’ favorite child, and leader of the dreaded Black Order – Corvus Glaive himself! Unfortunately, his LEGO outfit is pretty inaccurate to Corvus in the film. His head is nice though, with appropriately scary expressions – devious smile and determined grimace. His torso print is nice but he really deserved leg and arm prints. He comes with an enormous glaive which is much too oversized – LEGO maybe should’ve made a new mold. His cape is a ragged, papery style which looks nice, though his hood should have had some protrusions out of the side. Rounding up the minifigure lineup is an Outrider. These minifigures also appear in 76101 and 76104 but the more of them there are, the merrier. They’re nice minifigures despite the inaccuracy of the six arms. The minifigure selection is quite nice. Five minifigures in a set of this size is a rare occurence, and they’re all decently detailed, except for Black Panther being the main disappointment. Corvus Glaive could also have been more detailed, but other than that the minifigures are a huge motivation to pick this set up. The Infinity Stone of this set is, as previously mentioned, the Mind Stone. It’s translucent yellow, comes in a sprue of four, and has a golden stand for a minifigure to hold on to.Now on to the two builds in the set. The Thresher is in the title of the set but is actually the smaller of the two builds. There are two parts – the thresher launcher and the actual thresher itself.

The thresher is built up mainly from two saw blades, with a couple of teal 2×2 round plates on either end. The thresher launcher seems to be embedded in the forest of Wakanda, and has a mishmash of green and brown bricks. I’m honestly not a fan of how the thresher launcher looks as I think it looks messy while still slightly artificial. The bright red button is also ugly.The play feature is that, when you press down on the huge obnoxious red button, it launches the thresher. This is because of the use of an upper half of a ball shooter. The thresher can roll quite far if you press it hard enough, though sometimes it falls over. The main build in the set is the Wall of Wakanda. It has a neat color scheme, with black, purple, white, and gold. There’s a wall with three windows on one side along with a tower. The section of the wall all the way to the left is actually on a hinge so can be turned 90 degrees in to enclose the interior.

One side of the build has a Technic hole, while the other side has a Technic hole with pin. LEGO seems to imply that you can buy multiples of the set, and connect them to create a big wall. Interestingly, this is not shown anywhere on the packaging or marketing materials from what I can tell. The tower has the main entrance gate. It is translucent purple and has a translucent sticker on it which was a pain in the butt to put. Buuuut the stickers in this set are translucent-backed so definitely do your best to stick them well, or brush up on sticker-sticking skills before this set 😀 There’s a Technic lever in the side of the tower. Pressing it downwards will open the gate upwards like a portcullis. It’s a very simple, slick feature, and I like it.The top of the tower has a couple of stud shooter cannons, along with a decent-sized space that can fit a couple of figures. It’s a good place to put Black Panther if he wants to survey the battlefield, though there’s no visible way to get up. The cannons are on turntables so can rotate, and can also tilt up and down using hinges. Underneath one of the windows is a disk shooter. It shoots out a 2×2 unprinted sand blue disk. I’ll show you the trigger later. Beneath the window next to the disk shooter is a big black 4×4 radar dish. This is meant to be a target for Corvus Glaive’s Thresher – launch it and see if you can hit it. I’ll show you what happens when you hit in when we check out the interior.Now on to the interior. It’s decent-sized for a build like this but still fairly cramp. There’s a lab for Shuri on the side with two stickered computer screens – one shows an Infinity Stone while the other has a warning for an incoming Outrider Dropship. She has a brown chair, and underneath it is an axle with translucent purple tip that launches the disk shooter. Next to it is a brown bed for Vision. It seems that Shuri will take out the Mind Stone, and there is a 2×2 jumper plate for you to put the stone on. Now, what happens if you successfully use the thresher to hit the 4×4 radar dish? The brown bed Vision is on flips up into a vertical position. Apparently this is to “activate the lab flip function” (from the description). I don’t know what this is supposed to represent. If you put Vision very loosely on the bed though, when you hit the dish he will go flying 😀

Okay, I think that’s it for this set! What do I think about it as a whole? Well, the builds aren’t too bad, and the minifigure selection is really nice – despite repeats, they are nicely detailed and 5 minifigures in a set at this price is quite uncommon. Playability is good with both attacking and defending forces (with builds), and the price is alright too.

  • Builds: 3/5
  • Minifigures: 4.5/5
  • Playability: 4/5
  • Price: 4/5
  • Personal Rating: 4/5
  • TOTAL: 3.9/5

  1. And…pass. The minifigures don’t really appeal to me but Vision and Shuri (minus the hairpiece) are pretty good. The build seems to have lots of play features, but a wall doesn’t really appeal to me either.

    Nice review!

      1. Holy. I was looking through Ninja Brick to see if there was a way for people to subscribe when i realised that there’s a set database! Dang, I did not see that before and am now thoroughly more impressed with Ninja Brick.

        Ok, I don’t know why i’m posting this here but anyway xD

  2. I only want this set for Shuri, Corvus Glaive and the Mind Stone. The rest I could take or leave. Of all the Infiniy War sets this is the least appealing for me, having bought all of the others already, I may wait for this to go on sale.
