Last year we saw a ridiculously complex concept for a LEGO scale model of the SHIELD Helicarrier. Fortunately, LEGO has unveiled its official take on the flying fortress. It’s a manageable kit that comes with many unique parts.
The Helicarrier itself measures 31″ long, and is made of 2,996 pieces, including ones for the control room inside the ship as well as rotors that you can spin by rotating a tiny crank. But you’ll also be able to automate the rotors and even add working lights using LEGO Power Functions parts.
The set also comes with tiny vehicles and an all new set of microfigures, character models that are even smaller than minifigures that scale much better to the ship than minifigs. Speaking of which, the set will also come with minifigures of Nick Fury, Black Widow, Captain America, Hawkeye and Maria Hill and a display stand for all five.
