Not yours – The Lego SHIELD Helicarrier unveiled

SHIELD

There’s nothing that I love more in life, than Lego. Unfortunately, Lego doesn’t love me nearly as much, as buying a small Star Wars starfighter kit that consists of around a mere ten blocks is usually something that costs somewhere in the ballpark of buying your first car and bankrolling a coup de tat of Zimbabwe. That being said, I’d give Sandy’s left testicle for some of the stuff that the Danish ankle-destroying company releases these days, and I might just do that for the upcoming Lego SHIELD Helicarrier.

So what’s in the box? Hopefully not a severed head, but an actual reproduction of the SHIELD headquarters.  What you are getting, is 2996 pieces of anti-HYDRA tech, based on the mobile headquarters seen in 2012’s The Avengers. There’s also room for two runways on the helicarrier, small Quinjets, additional vehicles and a five mini-figures – Nick Fury, Black Widow, Captain America, Hawkeye and Maria Hill.

Another 12 micro-figures can be placed on the deck, to make it look like the Helicarrier is actually staffed. BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE! There’s a control center built into the helicarrier, that can be brought up from a hidden spot in the runway. You can’t see it right now, but I assure that I am drooling. The price for all of this? A cool $350 or thereabouts. That’s over R4000 of your favourite Randelas. Although if it does make it down here, you can bet that it’d cost a lot, lot more than that. Because whoever sets the prices for Lego locally, must be rolling some of the finest spliffs around.

In honour of our own helicarrier that was bought with trendy words and overly positive opinions on big game reviews, I shall name my replica the USS Hyperbole 11/10.

  1. So in an attempt to be able to bank roll this I am starting a cult. Would anyone like to join? All you need to do is pay me a ridicules large amount of money and then you can join the aliens that live among us just after you die. Also we have free Kool aid 😉

        Oros does not really hide the taste of the ….umm….. Vodka. The funny taste is Vodka I promise.

      WHY is it that ALL the cool toys like this Lego set only comes out when I’m all grown up and don’t play with toys anymore?

          You and I suffer from the same lack of sense it seems. I ate 2 minute noodles for three weeks so that I had money to put new knobblies on my dirtbike. When I snivelled to the ex that I “need” a new bike and that she doesn’t really “need” an engagement ring since it is crap dreamed up and forced upon us by De Beers, it did not end well :/

            See you first mistake was to ask permission; how would she ever have known it isn’t a real diamond.

          That’s easy. Just tell her how you can use the heli-carrier to deliver the sarmies. Demonstrate by moving your hands & making sounds effects. DONE DEAL!

            That is even more fucked up and the fact that there are people like that on the road makes me hope that they have a few drinks or seven and drive home after work.
