LEGO Releasing 2,996-Piece Avengers Helicarrier Playset
This is the 2,996-piece S.H.I.E.L.D Helicarrier playset due out this March for $350. It will come with five minifigs (Nick Fury, Black Widow, Captain America, Hawkeye, and Maria Hill) and is expected to be between first and third place on my birthday wishlist this year depending on the availability of jetpacks and hoverboards by early August.
Keep going for a bunch more shots (including the secret control center hidden beneath the middle of the carrier) and a video.
Thanks to Dave R and DWG, who are holding out for life-size LEGO Iron Man suit playsets.
