Amazing Helicarrier set revealed

Lego have announced their latest Marvel Super Heroes set, and it's one of the biggest, most impressive, and feature-packed sets to date! Coming in March in 76042 The SHIELD Helicarrier, a glorious micro-scale build - Though far from micro over-all, with just short of three-thousand pieces building an eighty centimetre long model!

The helicarrier has functioning engines (in that they spin, rather than actually make it fly), lovely micro-scale printed runway tiles, and a host of vehicles and characters - Included are three quinjets, three fighter jets, an assortment of support vehicles and eight microfigures.

At micro-scale the set includes Nick Fury, Hawkeye, Captain America, Iron Man and no less than eight generic SHIELD agents, all ready to work out on the decks, or populate the interior command center. But that's not all, there are also five regular minifigures included; Nick Fury, Black Widow, Captain America, Hawkeye and Maria Hill, who are presented on a bespoke stand with a SHIELD emblem as back-drop.

You can check out the designer video below, and continue after the jump for loads of images showing all the great features of the model.
