Before I get any further, I want to give you guys a few heads ups! First, please forgive the photo quality. Photographing a set this big can be a bit of a pain. Second, some of the pieces may look dusty. I want to tell you that it is not dust. It is the middle of pollen season here, and pollen goes everywhere inside and out. And the final heads up is a big one of these babies:
***SPOILERS AHEAD! READ AT YOUR OWN RISK!***
Whether you've decided to listen to your conscience or not, if you're reading this, you've clicked the little button. So welcome to spoilerville! Honestly, there aren't that many spoilers. But if you're an "I don't want to know anything about a movie until I see it!" kind of person, you'd better stop reading now.
But on with the review.
LEGO: Marvel Super Heroes: 6869 Quinjet Aerial Battle
The box is nice. Big and red. The moment you hold it in your hand you want to build the set. I am planning on rebuilding it later. It was a very fun build!
There were five numbered bags included in this set, plus multiple small ones. And the bags filled the box to the brim. One of the most full boxes I've ever seen. The seventy bucks are worth every cent.
The three instruction manuals were packaged with the comic inside a plastic sleeve with a piece of cardboard. Just like the POTC sets. The first manual builds Loki's chariot and the Quinjet cockpit.
The front of the comic shows all the... well you can see it. Leave a comment with the word SPIDEY in it if you can't wait for the Spiderman set. Interesting to note was that this comic included the Captain America's Avenging Cycle comic in it. No idea why!
Open up the comic and Whola! Epic figs! Nuff said.
The beginning of the comic. "Breaking news! Loki has attacked NY, but the Avengers are on the job!"
"And the Avengers defeat Loki and save the world! Long live the Avengers! Wait, breaking news again. Max from The LEGO Club has lost his logo. Good thing the Avengers are there to help. Where's Hawkeye and Widow?"
This set included a new brick separator. You can never have too many! Seriously, this thing is great! I'll be doing a review on it soon.
Guess what! FIG TIME!
I don't really like the staff. The movie version is a lot better. Sorry LEGO, you messed up.
Sorry but I'm not gonna review the soldier. You can see his review in the Captain America set by clicking here. I will say one thing though: This guy looks nothing like the bad guys in the movie! The guys in the movie were a completely different color scheme.
To clarify another thing: HIS HELMET IS NOT TOO BIG!!! It is the same size as any storm trooper, clone trooper, Hazmat guy, Atliantis diver, gladiator, and Jack Sparrow wig! Speaking of Jack sparrow, this is not the same face either!
The front of the mask flips up so you can see his face. Yep, double sided head. Check out that back printing! Ok, next!
This guy is intensely amazing! LEGO hit spot on with him. How close can Chris Hemsworth come to plastic!? Really, I think this is my favorite of the Avenger figs so far. He is totally cool. Now all we need is a Natalie Portman fig. :P
His second face is much more awesome than the first one. I love it! And his back printing is incredible too.
This guy was super hard to photograph as his cheese-blonde hair reflects anything that sheds light.
This girl is one big mistake. Seriously, LEGO couldn't make a better face? They've already seen her in a movie, why did they mess up? The hair is horrible! But, replace the face with the Elizabeth Swan face, and you're pretty good.
Excellent printing on her too.
This ship is beautiful. Only problem is, they don't have the turbine engines like in the movie. But a shield logo is great anyway!
This ship is begging to be swooshed! Pick it up and you lose all your sensible brain cells. NRAOW!
You can see most of everything, so I won't go into too much detail. Besides, by this time you are probably screaming at me to finish. I'm screaming at myself.
Front and side.
The back has a ramp to get off.
Wings bend anyway you want.
I completely forgot to show you the missiles. Oh well! All they do is flick anyway.
This drone wasn't in the movie at all. What are you thinking LEGO?
This is a great speeder, but there are times when I forget it comes with the set. The Quinjet steals all the glory!
The final verdict: This set is a complete must have. If you are debating getting this set, debate no longer, you will not be disappointed. The whole set is great. The figs rock! and the pieces you get are very useful. But is it worth the $70? Oh yes!
Thanks for checking out this review, I'll be doing more in the future. Wait a minute, I want to know what you guys think. Should I keep on doing pictorial reviews, or should I do video reviews? Leave a comment below and tell me.
