I guess I missed the announcement somewhere, but Hasbro is releasing the Avengers Hellicarier in a SUPER set for SDCC this year. I can pretty much guarantee this is going to be the San Diego Comic Con item to get. It’s a four foot long Hellicarrier!
The catch? You have to go to SDCC to pick it up. Kind of lame on that front, given that it makes it a true SDCC exclusive, but if we’ve come to learn anything in recent years from toy companies… You’re not important unless you’re at SDCC. If you’re there go to Hasbro’s booth (No. 3329) and drop $129.99 on it. The Super Hellicarrier also comes with exclusive figures of Captain America and S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Maria Hill. Hopefully that’s not the only way to get her, but I can’t recall if she’s been announced for retail assortments.
I assume they won’t ship that beast because of it’s size and that’s also why stores won’t stock it. Amazingly the old GI Joe U.S.S. Flagg aircraft carrier was over SEVEN foot long. Almost double what this toy is. How Hasbro ever got that thing to shelves, I’ll never know.
But for you plebians who aren’t going to SDCC, Hasbro is tossing you a bone too. They will have a retail version of the S.H.I.E.L.D. Hellicarrier that is around 3 foot long and is presumably to be sold in stores. I haven’t seen it yet, but I guess it’s coming.
