Gotham City Cycle Chase – Batman, Firefly, Harley Quinn
Batman Classic TV Series Batcave

I’m super excited for the Classic Batcave set. I’m sure it will be super popular and sell out fast when it does hit shelves. Fans have also been asking for a remake of set 7886 Harley Quinn’s Hammer Truck from the original Batman theme. Maybe we will finally be getting something like that with the Gotham City Cycle Chase set! As for Marvel, they are starting to give us more of what we actually want to see. I’m super pumped that Red Skull is making a return considering he’s one of my favorite villians. Along with new versions of Captain America and Iron Man it’s shaping up to be a great new line.


Lego Avengers Helicarrier Revealed!

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…
