An Avenging amount of fun!I've wanted this set every since it was announced. The thought of building a virtual big fig was very interesting and a great choice from LEGO.
The quality of the build along with the features are always great! My favorite build was Ant-man. The amount of detail and the print parts were a great touch. Once finished the antman build was able to move pretty much the a regular LEGO figure with the added removable mask feature that reveals a very friendly smile!
The features of the set are many playable figures with a QuinJet, cargo truck and air tower. The QuinJet has standard wing and cockpit features that open and close but in addition it has a swivel gun underneath that I think a lot of kids will enjoy. The air tower is a standard build but with a neat little explosion effect that can be used with the antman micro figure.
Now onto the figures themselves. Lego has always used great detail when designing their figures and the Avengers are no different, The builder will get quite a few figs with this set and they will definitely find their favorite hero right when they open the first poly bag! My favorite is the Scarlett Witch who has the a nice little cloth piece that fits around her waist and can be easily placed and removed if needed.
In summary the airport battle set is a great addition for families and collectors alike and the biggest draw will of course be the buildable Giantman!

Avengers ShowdownHaving watched the movie a total of five full times, I decided to buy the Civil War line as my introduction to the Lego Marvel universe and it was a great decision. The individual builds themselves were great as were the myriad of minifigures which fit in perfectly.
The airport control tower was a great part of this set with detailed interior designs on each floor and the two explosion functions. It also fits in well with the Lego City airport theme of this year.
The Quinjet was a nice build with some interesting play features such as the hatch with the rope and the lowering stud shooters.
The star of this set was the Giant Man build with posable limbs and the printed half cylinder element was very well done. I liked the fact that he could grab minifigures in his hands and also lower his mouthpiece.
The small luggage trolley didn't stand out too much to me but I particularly liked its play feature which catapulted the suitcases everywhere.
As for the minifigures, my favourite was War Machine with his awesome reprint and accessories including a baton and the stud shooter. However, I felt that team Iron Man was outnumbered and the inclusion of Vision or Spider-Man would have rounded this set out nicely but it matters not since they will be released in another set very soon.

The Super Hero Airport Battle is a new classic that combines really interesting builds with great characterization and play possibilities. First off, I have to talk about the Giant Man. Building Giant Man was one of the most fun builds that we have ever completed. When you are finished, you literally have a giant Lego minifigure. It has the proportions, poseability, and feel of a Lego minifigure, just magnified to giant proportions! The crafting the headpiece alone is a masterful arrangement of bricks. So much fun!
The airport tower has some very nice breakaway elements that can be blasted apart during a super-powered melee. The top section has a some really nice angles in it as well, showcasing some very nice techniques for getting shapes that are more octagonal than square. I don't fully understand the addition of the floating fence element, as it seems out of place with the rest of the model. It would have been better to perhaps enhance that wall element a bit. The cargo vehicle is on the smaller side, but it just the right size for Giant Man to pick up and provide a mega-sized wallop! I loved all the little suitcases and their movie-centric stickers.
The Avengers Quinjet is a more compact version than we've seen in the past, although it stays true to the basic design. The blue and gray really looks sharp together and it well sized and compact for play with smaller hands. The bottom mounted gun cannons are not the most interesting play-feature, and look a little out of place on the model when deployed. They do however make the jet very fearsome for encounters with the bad (or other good) guys!
This set comes with a very nice assortment of minifigures, including many of the big players in Civil War. My son's favourite was War Machine, although I really like the addition of Scarlett Witch. Without any other superhero sets, this one leaves you with a great little collection of Avengers for future missions (when they are not battling each other, that is)! Overall this was a very fun set to build and play with, and a must-have for Avengers fans.

Warning: Quinjets smaller than they appearAnother awesome build in the Marvel Line for Lego. The tower may be kind of a side build for the set, but it is substantial and would serve well in a Lego city or other display. Giant-Man is done very well, made to be as much like an actual minifig as possible. Something I didn't expect but enjoyed very much was the labels for the suitcases and packages. 2 of the suitcases have "Wakanda" and "Sokovia" stickers respectively, and the 3 packages are labeled with either Stark Industries, Hammer Tech, or A.I.M. logos.The figure selection is very good, but could have done with, say, Vision to even out the numbers between the teams, as in this set, Cap, Bucky, Agent 13, Ant/Giant-Man, and Scarlet Witch outnumber Iron Man and War Machine. The one gripe I do have is that the Quinjet is a good bit smaller than it appears, and has very little minifigure room inside. It fits a function where a stud shooter flips down, but I personally am not into such interactive play functions, so I spent a good 2 hours today tearing the ship apart and widening the bay (was too narrow for figures), removing the function, and overall bettering (sorry, Lego) the design. I also replaced the stud shooter on War Machine's back with the same gun that Bucky has in this set, a claw element, and a single-stud back clip. This is slightly more movie-accurate for those of you out there who prefer cosmetic appeal over playability.
Pros: Terrific figure detailing, particularly Iron Man's torso and Bucky's arm
satisfying Giant-Man build
well-done airport tower
Cons: Small quinjet
Whopping 27 stickers (not a big issue for me, but many don't appreciate this)
