One of the items at toy fair that blew me away was Hasbro’s 3ft Avengers Helicarrier, big toys are rare in the market today, so it was great to see a huge Marvel toy. Well apparently they get huger, as Hasbro announced today, via the LA Times, a 4ft Helicarrier for SDCC. This special edition Helicarrier is a foot longer than the normal retail release, and includes a new version of Captain America and debuts S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Maria Hill and also includes “additional weaponry”. This piece will retail for $129.99 at the show.
Comparing the pic of the SDCC Helicarrier to the one at toy fair does show its a new mold of the deck with greater distance between the pairs of turbines, a different number on the runway and a SDCC 2012 designator at the end. See below for both pics (SDCC first, then toy fair). I’ll admit, I love this piece and it is on my list.
