Lego Captain America's Avenging Cycle 6865 - Release Dates, Prices, Super Heroes Lego
Today we are going to take a look at the Lego Captain America’s Avenging Cycle 6865. This new Lego Super Heroes set is based on the Avengers film, we will take a look at release dates, prices and where you can buy Captain America’s Avenging Cycle online. Plus we will give you some information about other forthcoming Avengers Lego sets.
At the start of 2012 Lego released a massive new line of toys. They called this new theme, Super Heroes. The sets are based on both Marvel and DC Universe characters. We have already seen lots of new Batman Lego sets and next up we are going to see some Avengers Lego sets. The main reason for this is due to the fact that Marvel are releasing the Avengers movie in the April of 2012, so the Lego sets will coincide with the release of the film. One of these new sets is going to be Captain America’s Avenging Cycle, so let see what we can tell you about this new toy.
The Avenging Cycle
Captain America’s Avenging Cycle Lego Set 6865
There are going to be four new Avengers sets and this one looks like being the smallest of the lot. Captain America’s Avenging Cycle will have the Lego item number 6865 and we are expecting it to be released some time in the April of 2012. There is no definite release date currently we just know it will be sometime in April, so around a month before the film hits the big screen. UPDATE - Now all the Avengers Lego sets have officially been released and you can purchase them online.
As you can see from the picture this is quite a small set. All you really get is the little cycle that Captain America sits on. Admittedly even though it is small it’s quite a nice little set and very bright and colorful. Included with this one are three minifigures. The main one of interest is Captain America, he really does look good with his little shield. You also get the General and one of the General’s foot soldiers. Of the four sets we would say this one seems to feature the least in the actual movie. The only time you see Captain America on his cycle is right at the end of the film. In 2013 we are expecting a Captain America 2 film so maybe we will see a lot more of the Avenging Cycle when this film is released.
The good thing about this one is the price. As it is only a relatively small set it is also small in price. We have nothing confirmed yet but this one looks set to retail at under $20 so it should be pretty good value all round. As is often the case if you are looking to buy online you may well be able to pick it up even cheaper.
Although there are certainly better Lego sets out there at the moment, if you are looking for some Avengers toys then this one is well worth buying and as mentioned it is the cheapest of the new toys being released. Plus you do get the rather nice little Captain America minifigure with this set.

More Avengers Lego Released
So as well as Captain America’s Avenging Cycle we are also going to see three other new sets from this theme. The first of these is going to be Loki’s Cosmic Cube Escape. This is another quite small set that features a blue pick-up truck and it is based on one of the opening scenes in the film where Loki has stolen the cube and is on the run with Hawkeye. You get three minifigures with this one which are going to be Loki, Hawkeye and Ironman. For the minifigures alone this one looks like being a really nice little set.
Next up is Hulk’s Helicarrier Breakout. This set features around 400 pieces and will include Bruce Banners lab and a small jet for Hawkeye. This one has four minifigures which will be Hulk, Thor, Loki and Hawkeye. The Hulk minifigure is brilliant in this one and it really is a very nice set. This one will be more expensive than the other two we have looked at but it is a fair bit bigger as well. This is based on one of the classic scenes from the movie where we finally get to see Bruce Banner lose his temper and we all know what that means.
The final set to be released from the Avengers film is the Quinjet Aerial Battle. This is by far the largest of the new toys and does look rather impressive. This one has over 700 pieces and includes four minifigures which will be Thor, Ironman, Black Widow and Loki. This one has quite a few movable sections and looks like it will have lots of playability. As you would expect this is also the most expensive of the new toys. When you see the Quinjet in the film it does look pretty close to the Lego version.
As well as all the Avengers sets we are getting released in April we will also see the set Wolverine's Chopper Showdown and also possibly a Spider-Man set. Lego are constantly looking to bring out more Super Heroes toys and due to the fact that this line is so popular, who can blame them. The coming months and years will no doubt see lots more toys released under this theme and we should really see some great Lego sets coming out. Captain America’s Avenging Cycle may only be a small one compared to many others, but it is still seen as a very desirable set.
