Lego has finally revealed it’s official images of the newest Marvel’s The Avengers set, The SHEILD Helicarrier. This set was been rumored for over a year, and has finally been officially confirmed. The set will include a hefty 2996 pieces at a price point of $349.99. Meaning I will more than likely miss out on this one unless I win the lottery. 🙂 Here are the pictures we have all been waiting for!
This will be our first time seeing Maria Hill in Lego form. We also get a brand new version of Nick Fury. As for Hawkey, Black Widow, and Captain America, the changes seem somewhat subtle. We have seen them all multiple times before. I am loving that display stand though, it looks great and very SHEILD’y. Yes, I just turned SHELD into an adjective. 😛
The fact that this is micro-scale is very disappointing. I realize that it would be nearly impossible to make this minifigure scale and be at a reasonable price, but I would have liked to see Lego work something out to fit the minifigures inside the ship, regardless of how tight they fit. It also seems a bit overpriced. At 3000 pieces, I would have liked to see a $300 price tag. Lego did a similar thing with the Star Wars Ewok Village, which had 2000 pieces and a price of $250. I have to give Lego credit though, they did an awsome job with the ship itself. It looks absolutely amazing! I love the way they made the runways and the engine fans are spot on. There is actually a play feature in there that allows you to turn those fans all at once.
That’s all for now. That is until the next Marvel set…
