Welcome to my review of 6866 Wolverine's Chopper Showdown! I pre-ordered this set from LEGO.com a few weeks back and it's finally arrived. In this review, I won't guide you through the building process (I'd already built it before writing this, and I don't want to see it in pieces again :P) but I will be highlighting particular features in this set.
The box is pretty sweet, detailing our hero Wolverine jumping through the air and slashing a flick-fire missile in half with his claws. It features the classic X-Men logo, the minifigures included (with shadows of their faces behind them, how cool is that?) and a banner above proudly proclaiming "COMIC ADVENTURE INCLUDED"! For those of you wondering what this comic adventure is, I've taken the time to take pictures of the pages, which you can see in the gallery at the bottom of the review, on the right. Not only does it feature Wolverine's anticlimatic chopper showdown redrawn in LEGO style, but also the Avengers running around collecting parts of the LEGO Club logo for Max, who seems to have replaced Nick Fury as director of SHIELD for some reason. (So THAT'S why Nick Fury doesn't come in any sets. He's been assassinated by Max...)
...Moving swiftly on...
The instructions are, well, the instructions. There's nothing special about them, apart from this humourous picture of Wolverine giving Max a haircut. That made me laugh a lot. :P
(On a more serious note, does this mean Max has enslaved the X-Men as well as our Avengers?! He must be stopped before the next casualty! Maybe he's already been to the DC sets... maybe he had a meeting with Hal Jordan shortly after his appearance at the ComicCon and that's why he hasn't appeared in any sets since... D:)
