The final two pieces of the puzzle complete the huge poster of Ultron’s coming out party. The picture of Cap’s cracked shield below (courtesy of SHH) shows this battle may not go as well as the first time the band got together.

I hadn’t originally signed up to review of Hulk’s Helicarrier Breakout for two reasons, pricing and the uncertainty of how the Hulk would look in LEGO form. I volunteered for the Loki’s Cosmic Cube Escape set with a certain expectation of what that set would be and then the first pictures surfaced. I jumped ship and swam for the Helicarrier as fast as I could and I’ve never looked back. Other than a decent assortment of dark blue parts and an exclusive Iron Man print variant (circular ARC reactor FTW), I’ve found nothing of redeeming value in that set that couldn’t be found elsewhere. This set on the other hand piqued my interest instantly and became the only ‘must have’ of the super hero line. Don’t get me wrong I wanted all of the Marvel sets for one reason or another, but I had to own this set if it meant saddling up my polar bear, riding all the way down to the US of A and laying seige to the nearest LEGO store. I opted to order it online, then I waited to see if the nine year old in me would get to revel in the realization of Marvel and LEGO coming together or be as crushed as he was when they cancelled The A-Team…
My fondness of Midi-scale ships doesn’t end with Star Wars and this SHIELD Helicarrier by Ewok in Disguise is a fantatsic build that would look great on a shelf next to the Millennium Falcon. It uses some great techniques like the mixing of the old and new wheel hubs for the rotors, the angled upper deck and I even like the sticker use. One little detail it’s missing is the 64 on the side of the hull, since seeing the movie it’s left me wondering if this helicarrier is a heavily retrofitted USS Constellation or if the number is just an obscure shout-out to Whedon’s favourite game system.
