Super Hero LEGO - Captain America's Avenging Cycle

by nickupton

The Captain America's Avenging Cycle Super Hero LEGO set is an inexpensive way to get the great Captain America mini figure as well as two Alien soldiers plus the Avenging Cycle.

This LEGO Super Hero Captain America's Avenging Cycle set was released in 2012 and is part of the Marvel Super Heroes theme that is bound to be very popular, particularly with young fans. This set is the only one, at the time of release, to contain a Captain America mini figure and the Alien General is also exclusive whilst the Alien soldier is the same as those in other sets. Two cool vehicles and a missile launcher are also included.

On this page I will show you the three mini figures included in this LEGO set whilst pointing out their good and not so good points. I will also feature the other parts of this set and talk about those too. A video review is also included.

I think you will see that this is a really nice little LEGO set that kids will love and it makes a great gift.

New in 2012: LEGO Captain Americas Avenging Cycle 6865

LEGO Captain Americas Avenging Cycle 6865
Only $74.89

This Captain America Marvel Super Hero LEGO set is based upon action from the Avengers movie in which the evil Loki has an alien army as his backup. At the time of release this set is the only one to contain a Captain America mini figure; this may change but considering that it is likely to be redesigned later this set is likely to be the only one with this minifigure. The alien mini figures are very detailed too and each character has either a vehicle or equipment to keep them occupied.

The Lego Minifigures

Captain America

What's Cool

 Nice color scheme in classic Captain America style.

 Body printing makes the character instantly recognizable.

 Face printing gives Captain America serious appearance and blue mask.

 Comes armed with very stylish shield for throwing at enemies.

What's Not Cool

 No leg printing.

 Captain America is left with a LEGO stud on top of his head.

Alien General

What's Cool

 Dark grey base color makes the General distinct from Alien soldiers.

 Highly detailed head printing, front and back; unique to this mini figure.

 Printing on torso and legs is extremely intricate creating a really cool look. Unique printing to this figure.

 Comes armed with customized blaster.

What's Not Cool

 Face printing is confusing to look at.

 Bare head with LEGO stud showing.

Alien Soldier

What's Cool

 Highly detailed front and back head printing for alien look.

 Stylish torso and leg printing for cool look.

 Identical to alien soldiers in other sets allowing this figure to slip straight into a larger alien army.

 Nice color scheme.

What's Not Cool

 Confusing face printing.

 LEGO stud showing on top of the alien's head.

You can get a close up look at the mini figures and other parts of this Marvel Super Hero LEGO set and hear the opinion of the Brickshow on how good this set is.

An alien raiding party descends to earth and threatens humanity with their flying platform and missiles. No need to worry though as Captain America races into action on his stylish Avenging Cycle to do battle with the aliens and take them out with a throw of his shield.

LEGO Avenging Cycle

Captain America's Avenging Cycle looks really cool and kids will love its style and color scheme. However, many LEGO fans will not like it as it comprises mostly of one large molded piece which gives the vehicle its shape.

A few stickers are applied to the model to give it the Captain America look but basically this is a customized LEGO City motorcycle.

The cycle has moving wheels, little headlights, a rack at the back in which his shield can fit and cool exhaust pipes at the rear.

Young kids will love this Avenging Cycle for its playability, ease of build and cool look.

LEGO Alien General's Flyer

The Alien General's flyer is actually a pretty cool piece of this set - more interesting than the Avenging Cycle in my opinion. 

Made up of two wings and a protective shield for the Alein General to attack from. The color scheme is really nice and there are some cool gold pieces which add style to this vehicle. A small flick-firing missile adds some firepower and a few stickers add further detail.

This is a really nice little vehicle which kids will love using to attack Captain America.

LEGO Alien Rocket Launcher

This little piece is a small rocket-launching post for the Alien soldier to operate in battle with Captain America.

Some gold pieces give this quite a nice look but the main feature of it is a single flick-firing missile which will be used to attempt to kill the super hero.

Although this is a very small feature it does add some playability to the set and, again, small kids will love using the missile in their imaginary battles.

Older LEGO fans will like this set primarily for the mini figures, two of which are exclusive to this set at the time of release. The other aspects of the set will be of less interest to older LEGO builders although there are a few nice pieces included.

The younger fans of LEGO are going to love this set and it is relatively inexpensively priced so parents will be happy about it too. The level of playabilty here is high as all three minifigures have something to use in their battles and with two fast-moving vehicles kids will be playing with this set for ages.
