The new and massive Super Heroes SHIELD Carrier has finally been unveiled. This masterpiece of design and creativity has almost three thousand (!!!) pieces, features a huge list of amazing details and features that includes twelve exclusive micro-figures, five mini-figures (Nick Fury, Black Widow, Captain America, Hawkeye and Maria Hill) and several micro scale vehicles.
Two things immediately caught my attention. First, the new big black and printed plates used for the entire airstrip. Second, the four big engines that can be triggered manually with a lever placed at the back ,or just by adapting a power function kit, which according to its designer seems pretty easy!
The list of micro scale vehicles is also extensive and seems quite pleasant to build. It includes a couple of forklift trucks, three micro scale Quinjets, three fighter jets, two runways, four road blockades and finally a gasoline truck. But if we’re talking about playability, I can’t imagine how exciting it would be to build the entire model.
Inside and below the airstrip plates, the command center is highly detailed with lots of micro control panels, with an entire room prepared to receive all the micro scale guys. Outside the superior control tower is also quite impressive, featuring a big windshield and a considerable number of different antennas.
Globally the set is absolutely outstanding. For most of us it’s won’t be easy to get it, after all it will cost around three hundred and fifty dollars but it surely worth it! The details, all around the carrier, are huge as well as its features and I’m sure those who have the opportunity and money won’t certainly pass by this set without achieving it!
Have a look at a few additional details in the gallery and press release:
