I'm going to be honest... I had very little idea what was coming up for the 2017 Marvel lineup outside of Ms. Marvel. In recent years, I've avoided most of the spoiler-y information around sets. There's something nice about wandering into the store, seeing something, and going "wow, that looks cool." It's fairly rare in our modern world of all leaks and spoilers all the time to get something like that. Of course, sometimes that policy ends with Ace laughing at me because I had no idea there was a LEGO Batman Dimensions fun pack featuring Excalibur Batman until yesterday. Literally. This set was one I only knew the name of before it was shown off at Toy Fair, and once I saw the pictures, I knew I was going to buy it just because I wanted an Agent Coulson minifigure. While there's certainly been a lot of movie-to-comic influence in Marvel...(read more)

Pros:I really like the selctions of mini figs. I also like the build of the set.
Cons: I agree withe the other ppls: No track and the Locomotive would be difficult (not impossible) to motorize while keeping the same look.
Comments: This is my first LEGO train i was expecting a little more but it was a fun build. I don't have a city for the train to go around or tracks for the train to sit on so it is just sitting in a display case ATM. The TLG did a good job on making it look exactly like the trian in the Toy Story movie. The scene in the movie with the train was one of my favorite scene.

Pros: It really captures the set from the movie well. It's proportions are off just enough that it feels and looks like a toy, not a scale model. Good selection of minifigs/characters.
Cons: No track and the Locomotive would be difficult(not impossible) to motorize while keeping the same look.
Comments: This is my first LEGO train(unless my daughter's DUPLO trains count) and I'm going to have to admit that I am hooked. I never realized how large they are, for whatever reason I was thinking the set was going to be about 2/3 the size it actually is. I don't usually pay that much attention to piece counts, I look more at the size of the model you get for the price and even though I paid about 1/2 price for this set I don't think I would have been disappointed at all if I had paid close to full price.

Pros: a unique addition to LEGO trains; some nice printed parts
Cons: locomotive is a bit flimsy; motor incorporation w/ loco difficult; no rail included
Comments: This set has a fun cartoony/western aesthetic; a few pieces of straight rail for display would've been welcome; the intricate wheel assemblies of the loco will make adding a motor (PF, 9v, etc.) tough to do without compromising the original design.
