Probably my favorite of the Marvel Superheroes Line

This review is from: LEGO Wolverine Chopper Showdown 6866 (Toy)
I'm a recent convert to the cult of Lego collecting. I grew up with the toys, but was brought back into the fold as an adult. And being a huge comic book fan growing up, this Marvel line has been something that I've really looked forward to.
Of all the new Marvel sets, the Wolverine Chopper Showdown is probably my favorite (though I'm still waiting on the Quinjet, so we'll see). It's certainly a good value for the money as far as the mini figures are concerned. But the actual set's pretty cool too.
1. Wolverine - An awesome figure. He's here in his classic comic book outfit, sans mask (although you can see it rolled down on the back printing). The claws look better than I thought they would and I'm happy that they're removable. The hair is perfect Wolverine-style.
2. Magneto - The best X-Men villain, this figure is very loyal to the comics. Would have been cool to have included a hair piece for when his helmet was off, but this is still really nice.
3. Deadpool - A fan favorite, and one awesome minifig. Again, he looks just like his comic counterpart. He comes with a cool gun and an even cooler holster for his knives.
I really like the look of the helicopter here. It's not too cartoony and has a nice bulk/weight to it. The motorcycle is pretty unadorned, but true to the character of Wolverine. Fans can recreate the helicopter/motorcycle scene from X-Men Origins: Wolverine (though neither Magneto nor Deadpool were actually in that scene!). Bottom line: I like how the vehicles in this set actually make sense with the characters. Well done, LEGO!
