If there is one company I will always support – it is LEGO – yes, the sets have gotten astronomically high but the way I look at it – they are worth every penny. LEGOs never go out of style – they never lose their appeal – they never go bad – and amazingly, they are getting better with age!
Yes, LEGO knows what they are doing when it comes to creating a superior product! We can rejoice too – because they are FINALLY releasing Marvel LEGO sets now! As I was building this set I realized how smart Lego is in making all these sets. Not only are they well put together with brilliant little tricks to make them easy to play with – but they are pretty impossible to pilfer.
See, the Hulk figure may come in a seperate bag – but you can’t connect his arms with a couple of little connector pieces! Brilliant way to lessen the chances of theivery! Thor’s body is in seperate bags – as well as Loki and Hawkeye’s appendages. Thor’s hammer proved to be the toughest to find – but it was in there!
I had a blast putting this together – I think the last time I put a set together was when they first started to release Star Wars sets and I built the Milenium Falcoln. As cool as that ship was – this set is cooler! Why? Because, when you press the lever in the back of Hawkeye’s jet – the top pops off – like he was ejecting out! Not to mention the Helicarrier part has all sorts of little pieces to move and snap off – like Loki’s holding chamber – it’s just a very well thought out and put together set!
I have nothing but respect for the LEGO company – and seeing as this is the first set I have bought in close to a decade and STILL have glowing reviews – that says a lot! I can’t say enough positive things about this – except go get this set today! It absolutely rocks!
