Gets five stars just for Captain America,
= Durability: = Fun: = Educational:
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.
This is the tiniest set in the line, but super important because it comes with Captain America.
1. Captain America - I love seeing his shield in LEGO form! I do wish he had some sort of helmet and that the blue of his suit was just a tiny bit lighter, but just seeing Captain America in minifig form is pretty freaking awesome.
2. Aliens (2) - Two of the aliens (Loki's Army... or so I'm told. I haven't seen the movie yet) are included. It's cool that there's more than one of them, though I wish one would have been replaced by a classic villain like Red Skull or something. Maybe once the movie's out I'll change my opinion on them. Now they're just kind of boring.
Pretty basic. You get Captain America's cycle (which is pretty cool but nothing fancy), an alien glider-type thing, and an alien battle station. It's got a lot of play-ability for kids, but kind of boring for collectors. Still, it's definitely a highly rated set because it's the only way you can get Cap!
