As I am a bit cut for time at the moment this is just a figure review but I will do the rest of the set later.
To start off with Here is a picture of our fantastic trio of Minifigures that come in the set.

To kick us off Here is my personal favorite figure of the marvel line Iron Man.

And with his helmet up (happy face)

And here is a darker shot with his angry face. (sorry about loki in the background )
I personally dont like his angry face it makes his moustache go too far up his face.

And his beutiful back printing.

Now let us move on to Hawkeye.
Here is a front facing shot of him. (note all the great details on his body and legs)

More great printing on the back I really like the bag of arrows printed on.

This image of his alternate head makes him look rather like the newest Draco Malfoy dont you think?

Here is a side shot showing off the fantastic new bow peice.

And now we move onto the final figure in this great set Loki (sorry about the poor first pic)
No backprinting or double sided head on hime but heres the front

For those of you unsure yes the staff is just the old PQ staff and one of the old ninjago weapons put together.

And to finish of the figure section of the review heres some pictures of the fantastic helmet Loki wears.

Iron man is fantastic and just as he should be the only things i dislike are his angry head and the fact his mask is slightly oversized so I give him a 8.5/10
Hawkeye is nothing special though he has great printing and a nice crossbow so he gets 8/10
And loki who is perfect with a great helmet and a nice cape looks great from the front but it would be nice to see some backprinting. However I am very dissapointed at the reuse of the Lex Louther head. so i can only give him a 7/10
I hope you have enjoyed this section of the review I will be back very soon with the rest.
Hi everybody as promised i am back with the rest of the review.
The Jeep is the main part of this set so I have taken a fair amount of pictures includeing some comparison shots.
(note the missing peice )
To start off with here are some shots of it at different angles.
Lego Marvel 002 by Joker 789, on Flickr
Lego Marvel 003 by Joker 789, on Flickr
It is certanly a nice truck with lots of muscle on it.
However biulding it was not so nice it is simply tedious with loads of pages adding just one brick it is soooo frustrating
Lego Marvel 001 by Joker 789, on Flickr
Now as we all know LEGO have attemptd to give us more play features in these marvel sets.
In this particular set the play feature is being able to catapult loki into the air.
Unfortunately this has failed quite badly.
Lego Marvel 004 by Joker 789, on Flickr
Lego Marvel 005 by Joker 789, on Flickr
All it does is make loki tilt a bit and just look awkward.
And the other problem i have found with this set is the doors dont open when the missiles are down.
Lego Marvel 006 by Joker 789, on Flickr
So lets see how it compares to legos recent trucks and Jeeps
It is clearly the longest and widest of the three but is it worth the £10 more than the city set?
Lego Marvel 007 by Joker 789, on Flickr
Lego Marvel 008 by Joker 789, on Flickr
In my opinion it is the best of the three simply beceuse of its bulkiness and imposing looks.
One thing I found strange about this set is the fact that Hawkeye clips his
on the side of the Jeep it certanly isnt film accurate and just looks strange.
Now to finish off I know some people are wondering why loki nhas to get hawkeye to drive the truck well here is your awnser.

So to conclude the reveiw I think this set is fantastic simply beceuse of the price and the great figures.
I don like the tedious instructions or the stickers but i can get over them.
I give this set.
10/10 For price as it is simply a steal.
8/10 for figures as all three are brilliant but its a shame they all come in other sets alwell.
6/10 for biuld as it is slow and fairly boring.
7/10 for parts as their is nothing really unusual but their is a nice mix.
7/10 for playability as it is fun to drice about and to have Iron Man chase it but the only play feature doesnt work.
so overall i give it a 38/50
It is a great set at a great price and i would certany recommend it to anyone.
it truely is brilliant.
