Lego made a 2,996-piece set of Avengers’ SHIELD Helicarrier

Avengers fans have to wait until May for Age of Ultron to hit theaters, but Lego just announced something that might help pass the time. The Wall Street Journal has an exclusive look at the new set based on the Helicarrier from the first Avengers movie, and it’s massive. The main attraction here is the two-foot-long Helicarrier itself, but the full set also includes two Quinjets and various fighter jets and ground vehicles.

Nvidia Shield review

2013-05-13_00-33-33-1020-hero_large

Last summer, I bought an iPad 3. I convinced myself I’d use it for everything: showing off wedding photos, reading all those neglected articles I save to Pocket, and as a second monitor for my laptop.
