Whew, this one ticks a lot of boxes for us. Avengers. Peking opera masks. Made from LEGO?! Oh yes.

As Marvel and Disney crank up the hype machine ahead of Avengers: Endgame‘s release (with the movie coming out in China a full two days earlier than in the US), a set of Peking opera masks made from tens of thousands of LEGO bricks and portraying various Avengers has landed in downtown Shanghai.

The display on one of the city’s biggest shopping streets, Nanjing East Road, is being touted as “the world’s first Chinese-style Marvel heroes opera makeup exhibition” Not sure how much competition there was in that category, but still, a world’s first is a world’s first, we suppose.

Whatever, they look awesome:

Each of the six masks is about 1.3 meters high and 1.1 meters wide, with 600,000 bricks used for the whole collection. It took master builder Prince Jiang around 180 hours to complete them all.
