At next month’s Toy Fair in New York, LEGO will unveil the SHIELD Helicarrier set.
Release Date: March 2015
In the 2012 film “The Avengers,” the Helicarrier is a gigantic aircraft carrier capable of flight that serves as a base for the defense and intelligence agency S.H.I.E.L.D. (The new Lego set isn’t tied to the upcoming sequel, “The Avengers: Age of Ultron.”)
The set features two runways, microscale Quinjets, fighter jets and ground support vehicles. It includes five minifigures — Nick Fury, Black Widow, Captain America, Hawkeye and, new for Spring 2015, Maria Hill.
Minifigures Hawkeye, Maria Hill, Captain America, Nick Fury, Black Widow.
The Helicarrier also comes with 12 microfigures to scatter around the carrier’s enormous deck and interior. (It’s that big.) The microfigures are Nick Fury, Hawkeye, Captain America, Iron Man and eight SHIELD agents.
The LEGO Helicarrier stands over 11 inches high, 31 inches long and 17 inches wide.
Control center is hidden underneath the runway in the middle of the Helicarrier.
