LEGO continues to us here at Comicbook.com. The toy company has transformed itself into a pop culture juggernaut with multimedia hits like The LEGO Movie, LEGO video including LEGO Jurassic World, LEGO Batman, and many other great titles. LEGO is one of the most solidified and recognizable names worldwide.
But - LEGO is still LEGO. Their core products, plastic building blocks, continue to get better and better as time goes on. But don't mistake these toys as just kid's stuff. The sets are (not so) guilty pleasure for adults like ourselves.
Today, we took a look at the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Quinjet City Chase set. 722 pieces of awesome. Let's take a closer look. Join us in the video below as we unbox and build the set based on a scene straight out of Avengers: Age of Ultron.
The Quinjet City Chase set includes five minifigures. At it's more humble price for a set this size, that's impressive. They're not just any figures, either. These 5 figures are core and fan favorite characters from Avengers: Age of Ultron: Iron Man, Captain America, Black Widow, the Vision, and Ultron.
The rest of the set includes the truck featured in Age of Ultron which Captain America and Ultron sparred on top of as it contained the Vision in transport. Then, of course, there's the Quinjet. It's massive. It's detailed. It's fantastic.
Consuming well over half of the pieces out of the box, the Quinjet itself is the reason you buy this set and the reason you'll love it. Personally, I'm hanging it from the cieling with a little fishing wire. It comes complete with a cockpit which opens from the top to insert a pilot, an eject button for Captain America or Black Widow to launch out of on their motorcycle, flexible, compactible wings, and even a back door which opens for the figures to walk on out, ready to do battle.
Priced at $79.99, the Quinjet City Chase set is a great value. LEGO's are typically an expensive toy but the Quinjet set comes in cheaper than one might estimate from looking at the box. With 722 pieces included and five minifigures crucial to a LEGO collection, it's worthy of purchase for true LEGO fans.
Young children may need some assistance on this one. It has a more technical aspect to it then some other sets. For younger kids, I'd personally recommend the Attack on Avengers Tower set but if you're looking for some time with your children or, on the other hand, a Father's Day gift, the Quinjet set is what you're looking for. I can't say the Quinjet captures the same magic of the Milano set from the Guardians of the Galaxy line, but that's because the Milano is just an overall cooler, cosmic, and more complex ship itself.
