Lego UCS Avengers Hellicarrier!

Last month, we exclusively reported that there could be a LEGO Marvel Super Heroes UCS Avengers Helicarrier coming in 2015. In the new video, inside the letter G, it looks like Marcos Bessa is doing a designer video for the set. In the image, you can kind of see the Avengers Helicarrier and a small Quinjet right above the landing platform. It looks like LEGO is giving out clues that the set will be coming next year.

So... BIONICLE polybags are back?

@legomaster1378
Its not known yet if its a polybag or a boxed gift, however chances are that it'll be a polybag item. Given the release its probably based around the Winter Sets...

Not from ideas. frowning

And? We're still getting the set.

Umbra is likely disappointed it isn't more detailed or includes the same sort of exclusive figures as the Ideas set (Which includes double the piece count)


...which equals double the price. And I'm not too sure how many people would be willing to fork over 700-800$ for a single LEGO set, no matter how detailed.

True, though a lot of people were expecting a set that was that level of detail or accuracy, instead what we have gotten appears to be a combination between the 2012 and 2014 versions of the Helicarrier, the blue rotors being from the 2014 version.

I suppose people just had high expectations after the Lego Ideas version and all the hype, instead what we have gotten seems a little lacking (not including the power functions that it suggests, including mostly AoU based figures, etc...)

I'm disappointed because a big ideas set would have shut everyone up about the size of ideas projects. I can't afford either one.

But why would it be branded as Ideas anyway? It's the Marvel IP...

Honestly not sure what it would be branded as, same goes for the Doctor Who sets that are floating around. Would it just be a straight-out Doctor Who line (Like Lego Minecraft) or would it be Lego Ideas (Like Ghostbusters). Not sure ><
