It's been long rumoured, but yes, it's finally real: Lego are making a massive SHIELD Helicarrier, and by god it looks beautiful. Ready your wallets, Marvel fans - this one's a doozy.
Why yes, that is an R/C plane launching off a working, flying R/C Helicarrier. What a marvellous world we live in.
FliteTest—a group of RC aircraft aficionados—have made a four-rotor, eight-motor-powered Helicarrier that actually flies. They tested it and it worked just fine. Watch them launching and landing airplanes equipped with built-in cameras using video goggles and remote controls.
Prepare your Wallets, Lego fans: there's been a flurry of rumours over the weekend that Lego might be planning on bringing SHIELD's floating HQ to their range of Marvel toys next year - and not just as a normal set, but a humongous (and pricey) display model.
