Includes two buildable vehicles: Avengers 4x4 vehicle with cockpit, walkie-talkie holder, removable roof and rotating turret with two flick missiles; Hydra offroader, with cockpit with opening roll cage, aerial and stud shooter. Includes three minifigures, weapons and accessories, stickers, comic book and instructions. Avengers 4x4 measures over 3” (9cm) high, 4" (12cm) long and 2" (6cm) wide. Hydra offroader measures over 4” (11cm) high, 4" (12cm) long and 2" (6cm) wide. Suitable for children aged 6 years upwards. 

GOOD POINTS: Marvel Super Heroes is just one of the wonderful new themes from LEGO which offers Marvel fans an impressive selection to choose from, including among others the brilliant Avengers collection, and in particular the Avengers Hydra Showdown construction set!

The set consists of a good number of LEGO pieces to enable the construction of a fantastic action-packed heroes-versus-villain play scene where Thor and Hawkeye must chase the Hydra henchman through the Sokovia winter forest! 

The set consists of numerous parts and pieces in all shapes, sizes and colours, which are divided up into two numbered bags to make assembly as easy as possible. The accompanying instruction manual has clear step-by-step diagrams to enable children to easily follow each stage of the build, and a fun comic adds an extra layer of adventure to the experience!

Lego Avengers Hydra2There are three fantastic character minifigures included with the set, including Thor, Hawkeye and Hydra henchman. As always, these figures are very impressive, with superb facial and torso detailing, along with some great body accessories including distinctive hair pieces and Thor's red cape! In addition, all the figure's faces are double sided, showing alternative expressions to suit play, and each of the characters has his own accessories, including Hawkeye's bow and Thor's hammer, as well as Thor's fun 'Super Jumper' - a springy launch pad which helps throw him straight into the action!

The two separate vehicle constructions are good fun to build. The Avengers 4x4 vehicle has some brilliant design features, with a 'cool' black exterior and large sturdy rolling wheels, along with a removable roof, walkie-talkie holder (for the accompanying walkie-talkie accessory), and a turret on the roof that not only rotates but holds two flick missiles that can literally be 'launched' at the enemy (as the name suggests, these are fired out of their holding place with a flick of the finger!). 

The other vehicle to construct, the Hydra offroader, is a simpler build, but just as impressive Lego Avengers Hydra3in its look and features, with its chunky wheels, cockpit with roll cage that opens up, large aerial (although watch out for eyes!), and stud shooter which also fires at the touch of a button. 

In our opinion, the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Avengers Hydra Showdown is a great little construction set featuring some fantastic minifigures and some great props...perfect for both LEGO collectors and fans of the Avengers franchise.

BAD POINTS: The set is quite expensive, however you do get good quality for your money! As with any such type of product, there are many tiny parts which are prone to being lost over time.
