I bought the Civil War sets this morning and I wanted to share some thoughts about them with you as some of you do not get them till march! To be honest, I was quite happy when I saw that my local store had them in stock. Last year it took them around 1 month longer to get the Age of Ultron sets which was frustrating.
Crossbones Hazard Heist:
I really like the Falcon figure, well, at least the torso, the wings and the head. The rest is boring and not really accurate to the movie design. Especially, Redwing looks nothing like the movie counterpart and it make the whole figure twice as big. It is a real shame as I cannot put Falcon with Redwing in my minifigure display. Black Widow is the same as last year. Unfortunately, it is not very accurate. I think a plain black body suit would have been great. Crossbones is also a big dissapointment. Not only does he not have a helmet, no, the whole minifigure design was probably taken from early concept art. The build itself is also rubbish, the colors does not match the movie version of the truck. Nevertheless, the play features are quite cool, for children I guess.
Black Panther Pursuit:
Minifigures are great, I don't mind when Lego reuses heads for them. Though, Black Panther's head could have been a new mold which would look tremendously better, I find, and they could have included a normal civilian head for him to exchange. The van is kind of cool, the play feature is good and very well implemented in the car itself. The jet of Black Panther is a great build and it looks even better when you hold it in your hands. Building it was a great pleasure, especially the wings.
Superhero Airport Battle:
The biggest set in the wave and by far the best one! The minifigures are great! Iron Man, Warmachine and Scarlet Witch are really great! They are very detailed. This time I have to agree with Kevkipo: Hawkeye is missing . Hopefully, we see him or a new Ant-Man in the fourth set. I got the feeling that one Winter Soldier wo It is great to have Agent Carter as well in the set, she is a nice addition. The builds are neat. The tower and the airport transport car are great for everyone with an airport. The quinjet is compared to the other two too small though the play feature is great. But Giant-Man definetly steals the show in this set. He is a very great and fun build. I really enjoyed to build him. Though, he has some stickers (7) he is my favourite of the whole wave!
