Thor: Love And Thunder's 'Goat Boat' Gets Its Own LEGO Set

Most of the members of the Marvel Cinematic Universe's original Avengers team are either dead, retired, or trying really hard to retire in the wake of "Avengers: Endgame," with the exceptions of Bruce Banner/Hulk and the God of Thunder himself, Thor. Sadly, the "Thor: Ragnarok" duo won't be reuniting in the upcoming sequel, "Thor: Love and Thunder," although Mark Ruffalo recently made a post-credits cameo as Bruce in "Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings" and will play a recurring role in the impending "She-Hulk" series. 

As for Chris Hemsworth's Thor, he will re-team with his "Ragnarok" co-star Tessa Thompson (who plays Valkyrie) and director Taika Waititi in this year's "Love and Thunder," with Natalie Portman also reprising her role as Jane Foster for the first time since 2013's "Thor: The Dark World." "Love and Thunder" will transform Jane into the Mighty Thor as part of a story that takes heavy inspiration from Jason Aaron's run on Marvel's "Mighty Thor" comic books in the 2010s. Equally importantly, the film will see Thor, Valkyrie, Jane, and Korg (Waititi, again) traveling across the Nine Realms on Thor's "Goat Boat." And when I say "Goat," I don't mean the "Greatest of All Time" boat — I mean a boat powered by two of the greatest goats of all time.

All aboard the Goat Boat!

"Thor: Love and Thunder" has gotten an official LEGO set for what has listed as "The Goat Boat," a ship that soars through the skies and gets its name from "the two legendary goats at the helm." You can check out the first images of the LEGO set below courtesy of the "Love and Thunder" news fan account, which also provide a look at the LEGO figurine for Christian Bale's villainous Gorr the God Butcher from the film.

The toy description doesn't specify, but the "two legendary goats" in "Love and Thunder" are all-but-certainly the MCU's versions of Toothgnasher and Toothgrinder, the mystical goats that pull Thor's chariot in the Marvel Comics Universe and are loosely based on the goats Tanngrisnir and Tanngnjóstr in Norse mythology. They're nothing to mess with, either, as Toothgrinder is strong enough to damage Thor's hammer, Mjolnir, and, with a little help from Toothgnasher, is capable of transporting Thor and his pals throughout the cosmos at incredible speeds.

Suffice it to say, the God of Thunder's MCU movies have come a long way since the original "Thor" hit theaters in 2011, at a time when people were worried that a film about a muscle-bound superhero who flies around by using his hammer to pull himself off the ground ("The hammer pulled you off?") would be too out-there for mainstream audiences. Now we're just casually throwing Thor's magical goats into the mix, and I, for one, couldn't be more excited to see those four-legged champions get their day in the sun.

"Thor: Love and Thunder" charges into theaters on July 8, 2022, "Goat Boat" and all.
