Custom LEGO Build: One Huge SHIELD Helicarrier

ultimateshieldhelicarriercoverOne of the most iconic large playset toys from the 1980s was the G.I. Joe USS FLAGG aircraft, a monster 7-foot long toy of joy.  If I had the room I would own one and another iconic ship, is the SHILED Helicarrier.  Only LEGO has come close to making a identical carrier from the Marvel’s Avengers flick, but it wasn’t scaled well enough and to be able to move planes around.  From Taiwan, LEGO builder and fan ZiO Chao and his friends Dada, Kimura, Kuan-Wei, Stephanie, Tiger and Will from Formosa LEGO club builds the ultimate SHIELD Helicarrier.
