FIRST IMPRESSION | Score: 9

Not a comic book expert, I'm a Lego fan first, so this review may help collectors and investors alike who may also not know everything.  I liked the picture on the box,  I ummed and erred on buy g this set. The cons,  the recent spiderman movies, what with the love story,  the movies are probably never going o loose the chick so I guess I will never watch them again or any new ones.  Pros.  Well as a kid I liked spiderman, the one wth friends, iceman and the fire woman, I never wanted to miss an episode, the one wth just spidey and family was not half as good.  So I decided I wanted a spiderman figure, don't like maguire, but hey.  So I guess the one with tentacles is a baddie.  I dId some research, the other figure is nick fury, it's sammie j from the avenger movie, so why is the set not called, nick furys flying car?  It turns out fury has even in comic books for yeaRs, a spy, then head of shield,  I neary missed out on this set, check the pics,  the custom one in blue looks good, but I'm happy wth green, it has been in many colours http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=nick+fury+flying+car&client=safari&hl=en&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=iLiqUofWGYyThgeQkoD4BA&ved=0CAkQ_AUoAA&biw=1024&bih=672#biv=i%7C8%3Bd%7Cz-h_XBaSHnS5UM%3A

 

So having just wanted spiderman, which is cheap his way in a £20 set, Im now going to get fury inting flying car and a really cool looking baddie.

 

So my first impression, I still liked what I saw even though I didn't  know who the other 2 figs were.

UNIQUE PARTS | Score: 10

2 unique figs, it's gotstickers, who cares about  the technicalities how it was made, as a Lego buyer seller of vintage, its the sticker parts that counts.  You'd be stupid to buy this from a MOC point of view unless you wanted to make another car.

PLAYABILITY/BUILD EXPERIENCE | Score: 9

It's a small set, doesn't matter I haven't built it, would say 10 minutes tops, may build one, I have 5. So tempted, probably best to do so now before EOL and the price rockets.  No cabinet for my marvel you see, just the one, that's got DC.

VALUE FOR MONEY | Score: 10

£12 on amazon, as good as it gets, without having to scour stores clearing their shelves for the new waves.  Sets like this have 6 months on the shelves here in England, of course available online.

THEME POPULARITY | Score: 10

Marvel could soon be leaving dc in its wake, but yeah superheroes, a top line.

EXCLUSIVITY | Score: 5

Online availability vast.  In shops, not guaranteed to find it, so right down the middle, 5 score seems fair.

PACKAGING | Score: 9

These £20 sets come n strong boxes, good art work, bad title, so 9

GROWTH POTENTIAL | Score: 10

You may never see furys flying car again, long long long term , say 20 years, this could selL in the high hundreds.  Eol, will do well because of the figures.

DISPLAY QUALITY | Score: 8

I will build it sure,  can't comment really, a neat looking car, good sticker on spidermans bike, perfect scal, good colours.  A bit of spidery/avengers fusion.

CONCLUSION & FINAL ANALYSIS | Score: 10

Get this set if you like superheroes, but only once you get your favourites first.  Or on sale, snap em up.
