Horrendous photos, I can only apologise for the light we have here in Manchester. It was an incredibly sunny day and as it's usually dismal it caught me out...
Inside the box the pieces are in 6 numbered bags, with 1 sheet of stickers and 2 instruction manuals. Although the set is recommended for age 8+, our well-practised 6 1/2 year old built this alone, and he did it over two evenings.
In this set we have the Avengers Quinjet itself, the Lab Truck, and 5 minifigures including Vision, Black Widow, Iron Man MK43, Ultimate Ultron and Captain America with his bike and Superhero Super Jumper.
The minifigures are great. Lovely detailed prints to the front and backs and fabulous expressions with Black Widow and Iron Man having double-sided heads.
Iron Man has a nice opening and removeable helmet , while Ultron's headgear is a two-part construction which was new to my lads when we got this set and really impressed them.
The Super Jumper actually works! You'd be amazed how much fun a small child can have springing minifigures across the room repeatedly. According to our 5 year old backwards is best....
The Quinjet itself is awesome. The design is really very complex, and this is reflected in just how many interesting and moving parts you have with the finished model.
The main carriage of the jet has a space for Captain America on his bike to sit inside, and he can be released from the bottom of the Quinjet by pressing the black tile behind the cockpit roof.
The wings are designed to fold, move and reshape, and they're really sturdy, so they don't in any way fall off, even with rougher play from younger LEGO fans. It makes it really handy for storage! Underneath the wings are secret compartments where the Avengers can hide to launch a surprise attack.
There's an opening hatch compartment at the rear of the Quinjet, where the characters can travel and store their weapons.
Also included is the Lab Truck. This is an exploding vehicle with 'fall away' sides, an opening top with minifig stand and inside a pod for Ultron.
When the button is pressed the truck falls apart and Ultron's pod is released.
The Avengers Quinjet City Chase is a great set which has plenty to offer the builder because of the complexity of the Quinjet and even the Lab Truck. It is a good representation of the film, and makes an excellent playset which my 5 and 6 year olds have played with since it was built. The Quinjet is huge and with the bike, truck and pod there really is loads going on and plenty to occupy anyone.
At £69.99 for 722 pieces, you are paying for the intricate design and the Avengers name. The Quinjet set represents good value on a par with other licensed sets of this size, and is awesome to play with. Available from LEGO.com with free delivery and VIP points.
We were sent the LEGO Avengers Quinjet City Chase set to review as part of our role as LEGO Family Bloggers.
