This particular set is called the Wonder Woman Warrior Battle and contains 286 pieces, most of which will be used to compose the film's villain—Ares.
It provides a striking reveal of Ares character and how he'll be portrayed in the movie, which will be a mix of CG and practical effects if rumors are to be believed.
Check out the gallery for the full reveal of the LEGO images!
Ares will be a hulking figure on screen, and that's backed up by the assembled figure in this set. The orange-translucent pieces on the arms—as well as the design elements on the box—seem to indicate that Ares will be protruding flames from his body.
He sports a massive sword and shield as well as a helmet made of bone. The only details on the deity's pitch black face are his piercing red eyes.
It's certainly an intimidating appearance and certainly has us excited for how that look will translate to the screen.
The figure is assembled much in the same way as Giant Man was in the Airport Battle from the LEGO Captain America: Civil War sets. The build of the pieces mimic the form of a traditional LEGO minifigure—only with a greater range of movement in the arm joints.
There's no word yet about when the set will go on sale, but the next major wave should be released in June—just in time for the movie.
We're just a few short months away from Wonder Woman's solo film debut on June 2.
