Parting Shot: Fanmade S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier Soars Over Russian Skies [Video]
As popular as Hasbro’s S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier and SDCC exclusive Super S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier toys have been, the action figure playsets lack one important feature: the power of flight. Fans can’t really fault the toymaker too much – a working playset isn’t exactly practical to manufacture and many a ceiling could be damaged by young or generally unskilled pilots. Russian YouTuber user Native118 has taken matters into their own hands, however, by building a flying remote-controlled Helicarrier model all their own. Sure, it probably can’t support the weight of the combined assemblage of a bunch of Avengers movie action figures, but its water-to-air capabilities more than make up for it. You can see the flying machine in action after the cut.
