The SHIELD Helicarrier

We know the Helicarrier came out about 2 years ago – but it is just so awesome!

I for one am glad that Lego isn’t saving its massive licensed products just for Star Wars anymore. marvel comic fans are finally starting to get their own Lego sets! The Helicarrier is definitely and incredible set that should delight Marvel fans and collectors all over the world.

The flying aircraft carrier is a major undertaking, both in terms of cost and building time.

How awesome would it be to take on the challenge of building this awesome set! The S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier! The beauty has 2 runways, microscale Quinjets, fighter jets and ground support vehicles! This particular set comes with many of the coolest favorite Lego Marvel Super Heroes MiniFigs, plus 12 microfigures to display on deck and within the highly detailed interior. So included in this set are Nick Fury, Black Widow, Captain America, Hawkeye and Maria Hill.

The box for this set is huge! That’s not all that is huge, the instruction manual is 444 pages! While there are a few advertisements in the manual, it is mostly devoted to the construction.

There are almost 3000 pieces to this build! Despite how intricate the details are, its surprisingly easy to build. Although it does take a bit of patience and dexterity to finesse some of the more detailed portions, there’s no reason to think you have to be an adult to put the Helicarrier together. The instructions make it fairly easy, as the step-by-stop details are fairly clear and concise. As we here are fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe we are pleased to see the Helicarrier in Lego form! The price tag on this is a little hefty but for a fan, you would not be disappointed with the end result! The set looks amazing on display and still challenging to build and most definitely a conversation piece.
