Lego SHIELD Helicarrier Cost & Set Comparison

A Side Of Ham's Lego Set Comparison 2015

Lego recently revealed the massive SHIELD Helicarrier (76042) will be almost 3,000 pieces, with a $349.00 price tag. It can be really difficult to imagine the size of the larger Lego sets, and the box artwork doesn’t help. Chris McVeigh (Powerpig), of A Side of Ham, has created a really nifty comparison between the Helicarrier and some of the other large Lego releases. So in the end, it looks like the Helicarrier = 3 Modulars wide. Whoa.

A Lego Macintosh. “Hello.”

Chris McVeigh's Lego Macintosh Hello

There are a few iconic computer designs. One of the most recognizable is the original Apple Macintosh, also known as the Macintosh 128k. With its 512 × 342 black and white display happily greeting the world with a friendly “hello.” Chris McVeigh, aka: powerpig, has created one of the most popular Lego MOCs of one of the most popular computers. There are even free instructions available at http://chrismcveigh.com/cm/welcome.html. You can also buy a custom kit based on the 128k Mac. Hopefully the Lego version is a bit cheaper then the original $2,495 price tag.
