Hulk’s Helicarrier breakout is another excellent Marvel’s set. With almost four hundred pieces and four mini-figures (which are the big Hulk, Thor, Loki and Hawkeye), the main building is obviously the Helicarrier, but besides this, there is also a nice blue jet fighter that together intend to recreate Loki’s Escape from the Helicarrier at the same time that Hulk and Thor try to avoid it.
The Helicarrier is simple to build and basically has three different platforms which attach to each other through some pins. The middle section is Loki’s cell that is all made of glass. There are surely some nice details in this part. The transparent door opens through a clever mechanism placed in the first floor, and there are a blue extinguisher and a couple of glass boards in both sides of this section. Above it, there is a control room with some computers and a couple of blue chairs.At its right side there are some fuel tanks similar to those that are used for instance in the city sets, and also a big transparent blue piece (that makes me remind some solar panels…). The left platform is a kind of research and studying room for Loki, which has also a computer with a digital sticker.
On the other hand there is a nice blue jet. Building it, you will notice that it is composed by two main blocks: One that includes the base and the cockpit, at the front, and another one that will include the wings and the four missile launchers. The cockpit is very nice, it has a handle for the pilot and opens easily to increase the access and the playability. At the back, the engine and the two stabilizers give the plane an imperial and fighter look for sure.
Marvel Universe Fans will surely love this set. It cost around fifty dollars and is definitely a nice addition to the collection. If necessary the instructions and the comic book can easily be downloaded from here:
