LEGO has released its latest Marvel Universe toy line by unleashing the Avengers play-set. The Wall Street Journal has the first exclusive look at the new set based on the Helicarrier from the first Avengers movie, and it’s massive. The main attraction here is the two-foot-long Helicarrier itself, but the full set also includes two Quinjets and various fighter jets and ground vehicles. When fully assembled, the Helicarrier will measure 31-inches long, 17-inches wide, and 11-inches tall. The set will include five standard-sized LEGO figures (Captain America, Nick Fury, Hawkeye, Black Widow, and the new-to-LEGO Maria Hill).
LEGO has been doing some great things with it’s Marvel license lately but they’ve really outdone themselves with their latest Marvel-themed play-set. This play-set clocks in at a whopping 2,996 pieces and should keep collectors plenty busy for an afternoon or three. The LEGO SHIELD Helicarrier play-set will adapt the massive floating craft from the first Avengers movie in all its intricate, blocky glory.
Avengers: Age of Ultron will open in theaters on May 1st. The film stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Andy Serkis, Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo, Samuel L. Jackson, and is directed by Joss Whedon
