Average set but nice LEGO mini-figs,
This review is from: LEGO Hulk Helicarrier Breakout 6868 (Toy)
Like another reviewer stated, I got this set mainly to get the Hulk. My husband and I put the set together last night and here are my thoughts on it:
The set is just average. There are clever and fun parts like the clear panel holding Loki that comes out with a push of a button and the top of the jet that can pop out. However, the overall set just feels lacking to me. There was no sense of "oh my gosh...that's The Black Pearl/Millennium Falcon" when I was done with the set. But I chalk that up to the fact that The Avengers didn't have a whole lot of memorable locations and vehicles. At the very least, they could throw in a couple of random SHIELD agents to man all those "computers" since I don't think Thor, Loki, or the Hulk would be up to using those fancy gadgets.
The mini-figs are pretty awesome. It's a bit disappointing that the Hulk's legs can't articulate. But it's cute how he can grab other LEGO mini-figs. Thor and Hawkeye both have two faces so you can choose between angry and serious with a turn of their heads. I kinda wish it was a choice between angry and happy since I like my mini-figs silly looking. For some reason, Loki only has one expression. Maybe he's too dignified to be angry?
So overall, it's pretty fun to put together but it didn't give me the sense of satisfaction LEGO sets usually give me. I'm not rating this toy's educational value since I got it for myself for the fun of putting LEGOs together. And LEGOs are damn durable. Just put them out of reach of puppies and my nephews and they should last past my lifetime. Usually, I get LEGO sets for the sets. But I have to say, for their superhero line, I'm mostly getting their sets for the mini-figs.
