Our Five Favorite LEGO Sets for Movie-Lovers

In 1999, LEGO released their first set designed around a movie: Star Wars, of course. Ever since then, movie-inspired LEGO sets have been used to capture the wonder in front of the camera and create a fun experience for film and action-figure lovers alike. Let’s take a look at five of our favorite movie LEGO sets, perfect for movie fanatics.

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes the Avengers Quinjet Chase

If you’re a Marvel fan, you’ll know that the Quinjet is one of the most iconic aircrafts in The Avengers. It has appeared in two Captain America movies, the original Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron; and it’s even been spotted on the Netflix show Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. With that in mind, there’s no better symbol of the Avengers than this aircraft. This LEGO set specifically features the epic Quinjet chase in the Age of Ultron movie, but you can use the Quinjet to reenact countless scenes from these classic films.

This set in particular depicts Poe’s x-wing fighter jet and includes four spring-loaded shooters, two stud shooters, retractable landing gear and space in the back for BB-8. Figures for Poe Dameron, crew members, a pilot and BB-8 are also included.
