I find it strange how TRU in America are able to put the the price up straight away. Here in the UK ( or at least in my town ) they keep the sets at normal price for a year then raise them. I still find it ridiculous how people are willing to spend $5 to get sets 20 days early.

My TRU (Also UK) has regular sets at normal price, and then marks up the exclusives.
I'm disappointed that Thor isn't helmeted but otherwise that set looks fantastic. Kinda wish it had an A.I.M. trooper guy though

Do you guys think the Spider-Copter should have been a Shield-Copter ?

Most definitely (I even posted that when we got the first preliminary pictures)! I'd give the set a solid 9/10 if it had a color and logo change. If it was a SHIELD copter, it wouldn't be limited to just Spider-Man. Think about it: you could put Hawkeye, Black Widow, or even Nick Fury in the cockpits and it would STILL make since. And I hate Spider vehicles. They're redundantly redundant.
"There's an old joke - um... two elderly women are at a Catskill mountain resort, and one of 'em says: 'Boy the food at this place is really terrible.' The other one says, 'Yeah, I know; And such small portions.'  Well, that's essentially how I feel about life - full of loneliness, and misery, and suffering, and unhappiness, and it's all over much too quickly." -Annie Hall

"Sometimes I think I have felt everything I'm gonna feel, and from here on out I'm not gonna feel anything new... just... lesser versions of what I've already felt." -Her

I think every single Spiderman vehicle is stupid and should be a Shield or other kind of vehicle.  Honestly I think this latest toon version of Spiderman is pure crap ;).

And the way they never update his figure.  I do not need an Spiderman Army!  I really wish they'd offer variations.

There's one obvious way to let TLG know our collective distaste for the Spidey-vehicles...

I mean, who really needs a Power Man anyway?!

Powerman is awesome, but I mean original 70's Powerman, not kid Powerman. They need more scenes and less vehicles. Is there some evidence that suggests that kids dislike sets that don't have vehicles?

I thought that the bike was pretty cool, but other than that these are pretty annoying. I mean, what advantage could a trike have over a flying motorcycle?

This guy on eBay claims to be selling a prototype Captain America 2014 shield. He says it's different because it's a light red and not the dark red. I don't see that really, but maybe it's just the image quality.

I think it is the built in play feature that comes with vehicles. Kids probably love a combination of vehicles and places, but vehicles are just easier to build a set around, especially for the price points they are going for. Plus, the License holder would also have a say in what type of set they want produced, so I'm sure LEGO isn't at fault here.

Some of the vehicles aren't too bad, but I don't have any use for them so I never build them. I mainly buy these sets for the figures, so I guess the background brick is just icing.

I think the light red shield comes in the new 2014 cap set. I could just have been me but I thought they changed to light red along with the new medium blue Cap figure for the cartoon.

Oh, wow, thanks just2good, bringer of great Lego news, I didn't realise that the dark red shield was getting re-done. Trust me on this, that's a different colour, and the best part is it's more comic accurate. Bring on the X-Men!

Yeah, that makes sense as it's the only 2014 Captain America set that we know of. :sweet:

Got my Flash minifigure.  I must say, the bolts on the side of his head are much larger in person, but overall I'm very pleased with him.

I personally like the lighter red better, it will look perfect with the light blue Captain America!

I definitely agree with everyone who says that getting the same spiderman over and over again is very annoying. A different suit would be awesome. Or just use a different hero (I know people might think that a set won't sell well without a hero as famous as Spiderman, but when things like Chima, Ninjago, etc came out people didn't know who any of those people were and still bought the sets because they looked cool). Also a few extra villains in sets would be great. More villains and less heroes I say.

Absolutely. It still would have looked silly with a main rotor and two tiltrotors, but at least the colour scheme would have been nicer.

And yes, anyone who's paid even cursory attention to Spider-Man knows that there have been tons of costume variants.

Yes! Better pictures of Electro, thanks just2good for posting these. Five lightning bolt pieces, and two transparent arms without printing in a hopefully $12.99 set. I can't wait! :sweet:

EDIT: Just saw Thor's head. What did they do to his expression? :hmpf_bad:

No prob! I have to say, I really like the Avengers Assemble boxes. The logo looks really good, as goes for the art in the top right corner. On the other hand, I'm sad the Spidey sets use the 2012 artwork. I really wish they'd use some new artwork for him. Oh well. Also, the minifigure boxes still look weird with the fade, much like the DC sets for next year.

And, judging by the box the Hulk Lab Smash set could be $40. Now that would be great. On the other hand, the Spider Copter set uses the (normally) $60 box size. I sure hope it ain't that price. :sick:

Sorry, but is that a curved cheese slope in the Trike set?
