With special edition figures of Captain America and S.H.E.I.L.D Agent Maria Hill, additional weaponry and an entire extra foot of awesomeness not available in the NY Toy Fair-released version, this might just be the most awesome SDCC exclusive yet announced – if not the biggest. Special packaging artwork by Joe Quesada means that you’re going to want to be careful toting this behemoth around to preserve a minty fresh box for later display.
I freely admit that I’m a big fan of slightly gigantic collectibles – I bought a spare bookcase to house my Angel puppet collection and built a shelf just for my gigantic TARDIS playsets – so this would fit right in with my collection (or, more precisely, “would fit right in after careful negotiation of space and perhaps another trip to Ikea”). There’s just something a bit impressive about something on this scope – not to mention the fact that it makes a fantastic platform for action figure display. All reasons to go ahead and grab this while you can – worry about lugging it around the Con floor (or through the airport) later.
The Super Helicarrier will be available at the Hasbro booth (#3329) for $129.99 and while supplies last, which will undoubtedly be a brief time.
