They went and did it. Official Press release for the Lego S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier. Anyone want to go in on this so we can build it for a MFZ battleground? :-)

I didn't know setting tiles into clips was a legal connection for official sets.

It doesn't seem to stress the clip any significant amount, so I don't see why not. This is exciting regardless. I love the micro-scale quinjets and runway tiles.

So I own no rights to this, but seeing as it looked 7p scale, I figured it would be worth it to make sure people saw this;

It's actually $350, which is 11.7 cents/piece. That's above the golden ratio of 10 cents/piece, but not offensively so.

Still, it might be outside my budget...

I know that it's a (relatively) good piece ratio, but i just don't have that kinda money lying around to buy that thing :cry:

^THIS^ However, they are using the claw and the new (to me) "rounded clip" tileclips so who knows.

It's microfigure scale, which at 6p is close enough for jazz.

Tiles into clips are legal.

Plates into clips are not.

I had an official source on this, I'll try to find it again.

Oh, snap! I hadn't even considered it. That's really exciting, too. Perhaps more motivation to crank out 4p frames and vehicles? *wrings his hands, mumbling incoherently*

Hmm, since Chris Evans is 1.83 meters tall, and 4p is 12.8mm, that's about 1:143 scale, or just about N scale in model railroad terms.

The comparison of 4P to N scale is really interesting considering that 7P is almost exactly HO scale.

Zizy has done some amazing work mixing 1/72 scale figures with LEGO in his work.
