    I wish I liked it more. The V bit at the front is really loose and flimsy. Argos in the UK. Not a massive discount but probably the cheapest I’ve seen it and I figured it wouldn’t be around much longer.

    Picked up the Captain Marvel set on discount (another satisfyingly robust plane like Black Panther’s and Happy Hogan’s) and fell into the trap of getting the Hulk Helicopter with a 1/3 discount at the same time. Am so disappointed in myself. There are more pieces than I expected, I guess? But otherwise it really is as bad as it looks. Maybe worse, it’s all flimsy connections and rattle-y. Wings bashing against Black Widow’s batons when they’re in the clips. There’s not even a good place to hold it and spin the rotor. (And nearly got Pepper Potts’ hair stuck on a Chitauri - but that one’s on me.) It’s just such a confusing misfire of a set.

    So are the obligatory fire extinguishers not a thing for the Square Enix sets? Can’t see one in the tower.

    Iron Man 2; Formula 1 car that splits down the middle with Technic pins, am I right? Anyone know the footprint of the new tower? Specifically I’m wondering if (with a back corner support) it would fit nicely on top of the Sanctum set opened in its L-formation, for a quick and dirty ‘rising out of New York skyline’ effect?

    INSUFFICIENT VENOM. REQUEST DENIED. I think I might be being part of the problem. Sorry.

    It's a shame that the Steve Rogers WWII Iron-Armour-Buster thing isn't likely to be on the cards. I think people would devour that set. Whatever the game-tie-in Hulkbuster looks like, I'm surprised people are stressed that it might use weird parts or look different. Like, counting War Machine, we've had four of them now, three of which were very similar designs. Wouldn't another one in the same style be the boring thing to do?

    (Although I'm gung-ho for the transparent blue Breath of the Wild animals, the actual scientific and objectively correct approach for Lego is to do Wind Waker, with the same head-sizes as the Dimensions Powerpuff Girls. And once they've done all the lovely boats from that game they can give us the https://zelda.gamepedia.com/Spirit_Train, which as far as I know wouldn't be like anything Lego have ever done?) Yay Mario, yes minifigures would be great except that Wario should be a little bit buildable like those Minions figures.

    Prepare to live your nightmare. It's on the back of the box, bottom left. Pushy arrow, spinny arrows. Wheeee! Oh. You're right, aren't you? 'Oversized big tyres bike' and 'stick a Venom on it' are two trends which are orbiting each other but have somehow failed to overlap. It can't last, can it? I've mentioned this a lot of pages back already, but it always amuses me: If you look at the original Thanoscopter comic, it involves Spiderman, an alleyway with a trashcan, and a random civilian kid on a skateboard, which is basically a Marvel set contents checklist already. Harbulary batteries.

    The tilting rotors are kind of interesting. I presume it's similar to the system inside BB-8 (75187) where a single turn moves the housing (due to resistance) before it operates the mechanism inside the same housing. I thought it was pretty neat while putting that set together.

    I would have thought so too, but I've otherwise got no idea what they are, and I guess the set is wide enough that from most angles you might not see a little stack if it was kept in the centre?

    (Since this thread is where we sneak off for Nintendo general chat when no one's looking, the Harry Potter sets are doing the Lord's work in providing potential Zelda set parts. I know they're not completely accurate, but would I be happy with the transparent blue Potter stag and rabbits as The Lord of the Mountain and group of Blupees in a Breath of the Wild Satori Mountain set? Yes, yes I would.) I mean, yay, Mario, I hope they have a Pianta figure in the blind bags.

    Possibly for stacking underneath the set for the illusion of flight? Particularly since it seems like it might as standard be on wheels like 75103 First Order Transporter.

    Looks like this person got it right. Hail the prophet!

    Works both ways though; in that case I'd expect someone somewhere is having a fit that the piece got made in the first place!

    Sticking in pin in what people do or don't like - From a product development point of view it is just so weird that they had a specific head that was made for MODOK, could only really ever be used on MODOK, and now they're not using it for MODOK. Someone somewhere must be having a fit about that. Quinjet shrinkflation continues at an alarming rate. By next year I'm assuming we'll have hit the singularity and we'll need to donate a Quinjet to Lego in order to acquire the rest of a set.
