In our final LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Avengers: Age of Ultron set review, we have The Avengers Quinjet Chase (76032). The set has 772 pieces and retails $79.99 which is around a $0.10/piece. The box consists of six numbered bags, two instruction booklets, a sticker sheet, and a comic.
There are a total of five minifigures in the set: Iron Man MK 43, Captain America, Vision, Black Widow, and Ultimate Ultron.
We’ve seen Iron Man MK 43 already in The Hulk Buster Smash (76031) and the Attack on Avengers Tower (76038). Like with the other ones, Iron Man is mostly red and gold but the main difference is the helmet where it has some black outlines to give it a more prominent look. The Tony Stark head is the same as before. Iron man MK 43’s accessories are the trans-blue studs and round bricks.
The next minifigure in the set is Captain America. He’s the exact same one as in The Hydra Fortress Smash (76041). He has an updated uniform that’s more movie accurate. The main colors are pretty much red, white, and blue with some brown printing for his shield harness. His head piece shows Cap wearing his cowl which also has some chin strap printing. His accessory is his Vibranium shield.
Up next is Vision which is a new character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In the comics, Vision was created by Ultron but in the MCU, he is an android that is programmed by Tony Stark and Bruce Banner. For AOU, he is still a mystery as of this writing because there’s not much revealed about him yet. What we do know about him is that he is an exclusive minifigure to this set. His torso and legs are a muted green color with some very nice printing on the front and back of the torso. The hands and head is a purple color with the head having lots of detailed printing. You can see some of the robotic marks on both sides of the head. The yellow cape is the new kind that’s been showing up in the recent sets.
Black Widow returns as a minifigure this year with a more updated look as well. However she is not exclusive to this set as she also appears in The SHIELD Helicarrier (76042). The torso and legs are mostly black with some subtle blue on the outline of the body. She does have a double-sided head with a smirk on one side and an angry expression on the other. Her hair is a new piece with some curl molding on the bottom part of the hair. Black Widow’s accessory is the ADU gun.
Finally we have Ultimate Ultron. In the comics, this version of it is made of Adamantium to upgrade its body but in the movie, it’ll probably be made of Vibranium just like Captain America’s shield. Unlike the previous minifigures of Ultron, the Ultimate version has a new grey armor that gives it a more complete look. The printing on both sides of the torso and legs have sort of a silver metallic look to it. The head piece is actually the same one as the Iron Legion minifigures with the trans-orange piece with printed details. The helmet and neck brace piece completes the look of Ultimate Ultron. The accessories included are trans-orange studs and round bricks. This version of Ultron is exclusive to this set.
The first part of the build is not really a build but the motorcycle that drops down from the Quinjet that Captain America rides. The black frame of the bike has the new 2015 sleek molding style. There are some stickers with the Avengers logo for both sides as well as a clip for Cap’s shield on the back.
The next part is the lab truck. The truck is your typical looking vehicle with not much to it on the outside. There are a couple of stickers that says Cho Research as well as the Korean characters 조연구실 for Cho Research Lab. There are also some stickers on the front and back for the license plates. Inside the lab truck, there is a container that holds Vision. This may give a clue that the Cho Research Lab may have a hand in creating Vision. One of the play features is on the back of the truck where there’s a lever you push down to make the truck explode freeing Vision’s container. The other play feature is by lifting up the back roof area and putting Ultron on it. There you would use the Super Jumper to launch Iron Man at him to knock him down.
The main part of the build is the Quinjet itself. It has an updated color scheme with it now being white and blue. It’s quite large and is a great size for the aircraft.
The front cockpit area can open up to put Black Widow in the pilot’s seat. One thing to note is that the windshield is a sticker so that’s a bummer. I thing I don’t really like is that the controls are pretty high up. When the minifig is sitting, she has to extend her arms way high to reach the controls. Having her stand up in the seat is probably the way to go.
In the middle section of the Quinjet, we get some more small stickers throughout the area as well as on the edge areas. The wings can fold up or down depending if it’s in flight mode or landing mode. In the center, there are a couple of stud shooters on top. One thing that’s annoying about these stud shooters is that they will possibly be shot on accident when you’re maneuvering the Quinjet. On the right middle area, there is a button with the Avengers logo you can press for a neat play feature. Underneath the Quinjet is a string piece attached on the bottom. The feature here is to attach a minifigure to it and then to the white inverted brick and press the button. This gives an illusion of air dropping whatever minifigure you have attached. The other side of the wing has a couple of stud shooters that you can rotate out.
In the back area of the aircraft, you get some engines which are pretty hidden inside the wings so there’s a more sleeker look. On the top wing flaps, you can see some stickers with the Stark Industries logo. The back cargo area can fold down to see the small interior.
The main play feature of the set is actually in the middle area of the Quinjet. There’s a piece you can flip up which reveals the interior. Inside is a space to fit in Captain America’s motorcycle with the minifigure riding it. After that, there’s an area that you can press to release the latch and drops the motorcycle down.
Overall, I really do like the all-around design of the Avengers Quinjet. It is definitely an upgrade over the 2012 version although there isn’t much of an interior on both versions. However the lack of a larger interior is replaced with a very neat play feature with the motorcycle drop ship. In addition to the Quinset, we also get the lab truck that also has a cool exploding feature. On top of that, we have some great minifigures with a couple of exclusive ones with Vision and Ultimate Ultron. To me, The Avengers Quinjet Chase (76032) does feel like a $80 set and it’s well worth the price.
