It Takes Over 22,000 Bricks Build A LEGO Avengers' Helicarrier

LEGO Ideas is the new name for the grassroots program that's seen sets like Ghostbusters, Minecraft and Back to the Future become LEGO reality. It will also, in my wildest dreams, let this monstrosity become something we can buy.

It looks like a nightmare to build, and would be prohibitively expensive. And that's assuming you've got somewhere to keep it once you'd built it.

But those are questions best left to academics and party poopers. When confronted with the chance to buy an Avengers Helicarrier that is 216cm long and uses 22,694 bricks, you support it first and ask questions later.

LEGO will take a look at the project's commercial viability if it gets 10,000 votes on the page below. So get voting. (via Toyark)

    Let's be honest, all husbands reading this article are currently think of ways they can get away with buying and assembling it without their wives finding out.

      I wish I had a wife, so I could sit here wondering how I could get away with building this thing in secret!

      I'm going to try to convince the mrs to get me one for my bday next year =p Here's hoping it goes commercial!

        Here's hoping you have a car to sell first so you can afford it ;)

        I'd love to know how much this baby would cost.

          given it's 22k pieces, my guess would be around $4k in the US, $5k in Australia

      It would be easier for me to hide a mail order Russian bride in my house than this thing but I almost want it more than the old Star Destroyer. Drool........

    Have kids, then you can claim it's for them :)

    Doubt it. The UCS Falcon was bit over 5000 pieces and RRP'd at $1000 AUD. This is four times the brick count, add inflation and Marvel licensing... oof.

    22,000 pieces, that would make it about AUD$5000.
    Eeek!

    I want to assemble it but I don't want to have to find space for it. Maybe I should start a website where adults who want to build giant LEGO sets like this but don't want to keep it are matched up with people whose partners won't let them spend this much on LEGO. We go halves with the agreement that I can assemble it first but you get to keep it. Now I type it out I guess that's pretty much just selling it cheap on eBay after I've had my fun with it.

    Looks awesome but the weight of that kit would be immense! The SD and SSD were both around the 3kg mark for 2-3k pieces, so that might mean this'd come in somewhere around the 20kg mark. Reinforced shelving!

    Speechless...

    you know so people just have to much time in there hands.
    Well done!!!!!
