See the Massive 'Avengers' Helicarrier LEGO Set Coming in March
Ever since The LEGO Movie hit theaters last year, the building block toy has become even more popular than before. And with big blockbusters like Star Wars: The Force Awakens and The Avengers: Age of Ultron on the way, you can expect to see some cool new sets for those movies hitting shelves this year. Normally we don't highlight all of that kind of merchandising stuff, but LEGO has just revealed an incredible new set from the Marvel superhero sequel. Coming in March is the LEGO version of the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier, and it comes with five new minifigures and tiny microfigures to fit in it. Look!
The LEGO helicarrier measures over 11 inces high, 31 inches long and 17 inches wide, so this is a huge LEGO set. As you can see in the image, it comes with three microscale Quinjets, three fighter jets, a gasoline truck, two forklift trucks, two runways, four road blockades, armored exterior with translucent elements, detailed interior, plus 12 microfigures (Nick Fury, Hawkeye, Captain America, Iron Man and eight S.H.I.E.L.D. agents). There's also regular sized minifigures of Nick Fury, Black Widow, Captain America, Hawkeye and Maria Hill. The LEGO helicarrier set will have 2,996 pieces, and will retail for $349.99. The set be available for LEGO VIPs starting on February 17th and everyone else on March 1st. I can't wait to build it!

Why are all the figures so angry?

They're fighting crime. It angers them.

That's amazing. I love Lego! Price tag is a bit steep, but it's a pretty badass set.

Looks cool, too bad it will be over priced as hell.

I was never a lego person, but wasn't it cooler when you just built what you wanted with the regular pieces? You put this together yourself obviously but I remember not liking the sets with specific pieces and directions. I'd love to see someone who made a helicarrier with a standard lego set.

I think the price is actually pretty standard. I guarantee this thing will be worth more than a couple thousand $$ in a few years, mint of course. Now take this with a grain of salt, as I'm just making a little comparison. The Ultimate Millenium Falcon Lego #10179 was 500$ when it came out. It's a little under twice number of pieces. Even Amazon sells it for $4600 now, good luck getting it for under 5k anywhere else. Of course, we all know how much more awesome the M.F is.
