The only two official accessories are the staff carried by Loki and Hawkeye bow. The cosmic cube and Ironman accessories are pretty much a normal bricks.


Everyone is after Ironman minifigs due to the unique helmet and I must admit that the helmet is pretty big. Ironman and Hawkeye torso is printed both side, legs are printed and the head have double expression. Loki on the other hand are just the opposite of the two, except the leg, which are printed too. Loki's helmet are very big too.

SHIELD Off-roader
The vehicle is just like any other vehicle from the City theme except flick fire missile were added on the both side of the off-roader. The off-roader is very nice and on top of that you can get a lot of dark blue parts in it. Also if you notice, I assemble the wheel rim the opposite way instead of following the instruction.

Here's are some of the nice detail at the front of the off-roader, added with bar, round head lamps and cornering lamps or signal light on both side. LEGO tires with the brand printed.

The roof of the off-roader also have parts that signify spot lights (I think) on it while the interior is equipped with a seat, steering and gear. However, the interior is quite small and narrow, fit just right for one minifig.

IMG_1947 IMG_1948 IMG_1952

While on the side of the doors there are clippers ready to snap fit a fire extinguisher and Hawkeye bow. Also at the back of the driver seat there are transparent part that signify glass which is the extra details to make it looks more accurate. But the transparent are too big.

The door can be open and close, and there are design malfunction here whereby the flick-fire missiles is blocking the door from fully open. In this case you have to adjust the missiles or remove it.

IMG_1954 IMG_1955 IMG_1956

While here's the flick-fire missiles that are built near the door on both side of the off-roader.

IMG_1926 IMG_1927 IMG_1928

The last playability of this set, is the catapulting plank at the back of the off-roader. Is optional whether you want to flip Loki of the off-roader or keep him on by just attaching him to the stud.

Extra pieces
There are still quite a number of parts lest after the assembling process.


Completed model
I like the off-roader very much, especially the front part of it. The set also comes with a few new parts and of course dark blue parts. Other than that the off-roader in my opinion is solid and of course nice minifigs. By removing the flick-fire function, this off-roader can fit into your city.


Playability: 6/10 The same bored flick-fire missiles, and catapult plank.
Building experience: 6/10 A good learning to build a good off-roader.
Parts: 8/10 A lot dark blue parts, and new part.
Value for money: 6/10 I would say pricey.
Overall: 6/10 If you can get this at a lower price, get a few sets of this. Is just so nice or have at least one if you have no other option than to buy here.

LEGO Super Heroes #6865 Captain America's Avenging Cycle Review

Theme: Super Heroes
Name: Captain America's Avenging Cycle
S/N: #6865
Year: 2012
Pieces: 72
Minifig: 3
Price: RM79.90, USD12.99, GBP11.99

This is the Marvel Super Heroes set and the theme of the box is red and the four characters of Avengers were printed on the top right. At the front we have the serial number, name of the set and a nicely made box art. The top of the box shows us the actual scale of the minifigs while the back is a little like a comic where it shows Captain America fighting against two Chitauri, and the flick fire playability.

The bricks are pack in two separate bags and the chasis of the superbike is not packed in any bag. Other things that comes with the bricks are the usual content, instruction booklet and a sticker sheet.

IMG_1634 IMG_1642 IMG_1638

To read the instruction, kindly click HERE.

The set comes with two accessories only, Captain America's Shield (the only weapon he got) and a ray gun for the Chitauri. Very very few and the ray gun is a big let down.


Captain America and Chitauri General only appears in this set at the moment. All of the minifigs got their torso printed on both side and they are finely printed on it. For the Chitauri, they got their leg printed and the back of their head printed too. Too bad the face of the Chitauri are different from the one in the movie. All on all, they are nice minifigs.

Captain America's Avenging Cycle
No idea why is a superbike given rather than old classic bike chasis. This cycle appear out of nowhere but again is a good news for superbike fans. They can add this additional cycle into their collection. So for those that bought Pharaoh's Quest #7306 Golden Staff Guardians can replace it with the motorcycle from that set.

Chitauri's Gun Stand
Reading from LEGO product description it was written as a gun stand. I think this thing here is pointless, I rather they made the craft like the one in Quinjet playset. That would be better and more accurate.

IMG_1677 IMG_1678

Chitauri General's Craft
Not really sure if there are craft that singlely maneuver by the Chitauri but this one, the designer done a good job. Although this thing is small and armed with the all time favourite designer playabilty, this craft just look right in my eyes. Like the way the designer design it.

IMG_1684 IMG_1689 IMG_1686 IMG_1687

The flick-fire missile is armed right below the craft. Your finger might get hurt if you flick wrongly and hit the base of the craft.

Two shots of both the gun stand and craft.

Extra pieces
Here's the two parts left after the assembling process.


Completed model
The set is affordable although the value does not worth something as suggested by the distributor here, maybe a little lesser would be right. For those that want only Captain America minifig, are suggested to get the set rather than buying separately for half the price of the playset since the playset comes with three minifigs and a motorbike.


Playability: 4/10 Flick-fire missile?
Building experience: 5/10 Nice craft although the stands itself are a disappointment.
Parts: 5/10 Motorbike and a printed shield for Capatain America
Value for money: 7/10 Three minifigs, a motorbike and a nice craft.
Overall: 5/10 Although not much things, but as mention on the above, it pretty much cover up the price.
