LEGO outs Official Avengers S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier SetJanuary 29th, 2015
There have been numerous fan builds of the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier from The Avengers. Soon, you’ll be able to build one for yourself thanks to LEGO’s official S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier set.
This massive, 31″ long x 17″ wide, 2,996 piece set offers tons of details both inside and out, and will ship with a variety of miniature jets, trucks, forklifts and other items to put on deck. The set even includes a dozen microfigures, which are properly scaled for use with the set. LEGO also throws in regular sized minifigs of Nick Fury, Black Widow, Captain America, Hawkeye and Maria Hill for you to display separately.
