6867 Loki's Cosmic Cube Escape

As TheLegoAdrian points out in the comments, here is another well-felt video review that makes you want to rush to your nearest store to get this set. 6867 Loki's Cosmic Cube Escape.

With the added bonus of a comparison between the two versions of Iron Man from the new LEGO Super Heroes Marvel range and always as many crazy special effects. The editing at the end of the review is also worth its weight in action and peanuts ...

6866 Wolverine's Chopper Showdown

Another impeccable review of the friend Artifex with this presentation in order of the set 6866 Wolverine's Chopper Showdown.

Deadpool shows us his stop-motion abilities and it's simply a feast for the eyes. Don't miss the last seconds of the video, it's the trailer for what's to come and it's simply excellent!

Once you've seen this review, then go see the next video, I promise you action like you rarely see when it comes to brickfilms ....

As a reminder, Artifex had agreed to answer a few questions about its production techniques. You can read his interview at this address.

30160 Batman Jetski

And it is on YouTube that smutoys posted the first video review of this sachet set which therefore contains Batman with the new version of the mask I was telling you about. in this article.

Nothing really revolutionary, except the possibility of obtaining a minifig of Batman and a rather successful mini jetski at a low price. According to the author of the review, the set 30160 is already available for $ 3.99 in some LEGO stores.

I haven't found anything on bricklink but this set is already offered on eBay for those in a hurry.

LEGO Super Heroes Marvel - 6869 Quinjet Aerial Battle

This is the big piece of this wave of LEGO Super Heroes Marvel sets: 735 pieces, 5 minifigs and a Quinjet, the machine that carries the Avengers: The set 6869 Quinjet Aerial Battle.

Loki, I'm having a little trouble with his headdress and his scepter which could have been a little more ... not sure what, but a little more. Black Widow, I love this minifigure not necessarily similar to Scarlett but which remains a pretty feminine minifig with well detailed legs. Thor, I have a little trouble with his hair but we'll get used to it, Iron Man, everything has been said a hundred times ...

Note that this video gives pride of place to special effects and that Artifex really let go to animate this review and make it rather fun.

On the Quinjet we will note the use as usual by LEGO of many parts in colors not necessarily matched to the set and which I always wonder what they are doing there: Is it to give reference points to the youngest? during construction? To achieve an economy of scale on certain parts? No one has really gotten any information on this from the manufacturer, although I'm leaning towards the first answer.

The various features of the Quinjet are staged and the drone ejection mechanism is quite successful.

Anyway, take a look and make up your own mind. Me, it's clear, I need this set ....

6866 Wolverine's Chopper Showdown - Picture from hmillington @ Brickset

For the most impatient and for all those who have not yet seen everything from the Marvel range, many more or less detailed reviews are popping up here and there, it's normal, it's the race ...

So on the menu, a review du 6869 Quinjet Aerial Battle by Tereglith on Eurobricks, during which you learn ... not much that you don't already know. The Quinjet is nice, but a little messy for my taste, with a non-retractable landing gear, stickers to the shovel, a well-appointed cockpit, it comes with a drone from the SHIELD which we will certainly discover the interest in the movie, and the storage space on the Quinjet cannot accommodate Captain America's motorcycle or the Hulk minifigure.

The Joker1, another Eurobricks member, offers a review of the set 6867 Loki's Cosmic Cube Escape. Another minifigure of Loki, also present in the 6869, a vehicle that will delight those who like to play with their LEGOs, the others will have an extra 4x4 on their shelf, Hawkeye is a successful minifig, it is possible to eject Loki from the back of the truck and the cosmic cube is a part transparent ....

jammiedodger also posted a review why 6867 Loki's Cosmic Cube Escape.

With much better photos, Huw Millington of Brickset also goes there for his mini-reviews. Less talk, more quality images: 6869 Quinjet Aerial Battle6866 Wolverine's Chopper Showdown6865 Captain America's Avenging Cycle6867 Loki's Cosmic Cube Escape.
