The Avengers LEGO sets have finally arrived! It has been a few years since LEGO last held a Marvel license, but now that they have it again, they’re wasting no time. And now I have a Batman, Harry Potter, Captain America and Jack Sparrow all in the same compatible scale!

The final pairing in the Mega Bloks Marvel line are two classic brothers locked in an eternal battle – Thor and Loki! I’ve got to hand it to Mega Bloks for managing to include three great pairings of heroes and classic villains; it works so much better than the Spider-Man-centric first wave.
