Phil de Semiyen of Empire Magazine attended UK Toy Fair 2012 where he was able to check out the upcoming Lego Avengers Movie construction sets. While he didn’t post any photos, he did post descriptions of the sets.
WARNING, the descriptions feature SPOILERS, if you can get past that, read on for a summary, YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!
Highlight to read:
The first, “Loki’s Cosmic Cube Escape”, has the Norse god clutching his cosmic cube on the back of a S.H.I.E.L.D. pick-up. No surprise there: it features in the Captain America post-credits clip. Except that behind the wheel is Hawkeye, helping the impish diety escape. If we’re not putting two and two together and making 167, it looks like Loki is exercising mind control over the bowman.
That’s possibly borne out in ‘Hulk Helicarrier Breakout’, a scene that presumably precedes the cube escape. While his staff is being evaluated in Bruce Banner’s lab, Loki is imprisoned in a glass cell. Here’s where it gets mysterious: the kit features flickable barrels for Hulk to launch across the flight deck and stymie a rescue attempt.
Is it Hawkeye’s S.H.I.E.L.D. jet, which we spotted nearby with a mini-Jeremy Renner in the cockpit, that he’ll be trying to stop? Could this be a Tinker, Tailor man-on-the-inside scenario?
The final kits – ‘Quinjet Aerial Battle’, featuring a S.H.I.E.L.D. jet piloted by Black Widow, and ‘Captain America’s Avenging Cycle’ – had elements too secret even to reveal at the show. One figure missing was one of Loki’s co-villains. Could it be a tiny Simon Cowell? We’ll find out when the kits go onsale in early April.‘
