LEGO Marvel Super Heroes: The SHIELD Helicarrier 76042 (2296 Pieces)

Let’s start with some bad news. The SHIELD Helicarrier has been retired by LEGO… SIGH!

The good news is that this epic set is still available if you know where to look but you will have to pay more to get your hands on it.

More good news is that more there is another version of the LEGO Helicarrier available and it is listed as the second set in this best LEGO Marvel sets to buy but for now, let’s get back to the epic LEGO Marvel Super Heroes SHIELD Helicarrier…

The gigantic SHIELD Helicarrier is a huge build. It is the second biggest LEGO Marvel set that has been produced to date with only the Spider-Man Daily Bugle 76178 being bigger.

Features and accessories include:

  • 3 microscale Quinjets
  • 3 fighter jets
  • Gasoline truck
  • 2 forklift trucks

With this set, you can also add lights and bring the Helicarrier to life with spinning rotors by buying the  LEGO Power Functions sets  88000, 8883 and 8870. Frustratingly these are not included with this set and it kind of sucks that after paying such a huge price for this set that you then find you have to buy additional Power Function sets to give this mammoth set the functionality it deserves.

Good LEGO for creating such a great set, Bad LEGO for the upsells on the Power Functions.

The LEGO Marvel Super Heroes SHIELD Helicarrier is really a purchase for someone who doesn’t have to worry too much about money or their everyday bills.

After the fun of building this gigantic Marvel LEGO set is over you have the small task of finding somewhere to display it. Definitely not a set if you live in a one-bedroom apartment but it certainly would be a talking point in any room.

Definitely a great set for the adult LEGO builder.

The Best LEGO Marvel Sets for Children – Buyers Guide

There are seemingly endless LEGO Marvel sets available and we have just mentioned our AFG favorites in this checklist and buyers guide. If you are looking to buy a set for your child or as a gift for someone else then here are a few pointers to narrow down your search.

 

LEGO Marvel Characters

There are some big hitters in the LEGO Marvel roster such as Spiderman, Iron Man, and the Avengers in general but there are many others that will be just as popular.

For example, we also have Venom and with the soon-to-be-released Venom 2 Let there be Carnage he is only set to become more popular. There are also the Guardians of the Galaxy sets to consider as well as the new sets being released for Shang-Chi and the Eternals.

It’s hard to get it wrong with Marvel LEGO sets but you really can get it right if you know what’s hot on the LEGO Marvel series.

 

Age Appropriateness

Everyone loves LEGO so there are LEGO sets got all ages. There are some really simple build sets aimed at the very young and then you can get sets aimed at the 6+, 9+, 15+ ages right up to sets designed really just for the hardcore builders and collectors.

And the age range on the box really is an indication of how difficult the set will be to build.

 

Number of Pieces

Big sets can be overwhelming if you are not used to building LEGO sets. If you put for example a big complex LEGO Technics set in front of a 7-year-old then they more than likely struggle and quickly lose interest. Whereas if you gave them a small BrickHeadz set or just a lower brick count set to begin with you will fair much better.

The number of pieces on a set is s strong indicator of how difficult and how time-consuming a set is to build. So carefully consider the number of pieces on a set and who you are buying for.

 

A buyers guide to LEGO Marvel Sets – Takeaways

LEGO Marvel sets make great gifts for the old and young alike. Just make sure that you do consider how big a build the proposed set is and if it’s appropriate for who you are buying it for.

Also, know your sets. New movies are continually released spawning new sets and new characters.

Like we said it’s hard to get it wrong when buying LEGO but if you know your characters and sets it’s much easier to get it really right and give the perfect LEGO gift.

 

That’s all for now!

So are you a LEGO fan, do you collect Marvel LEGO sets?
