Rated 5 out of 5 by PaprikaElf I got this for Thanos - and you will too!
As a fan of the Infinity Gauntlet and Infinity War comic arcs, I have a fondness for Thanos. The mad Titan is probably my favorite Marvel villain and I was pleased to get him in this set. It was also a bonus to get Captain Marvel and a relatively obscure (but still well-done) Hyperion.
I also have the 76032 Avengers Quinjet City Chase set and that Quinjet is far superior in look and size to this Avenjet, but the red and white color on this one is very nice. I also really liked the large printed engine pieces (printed on the large satellite pieces). If this is the only Avenger plane you have, it is a nice one, but the other one is better. Overall rating for the plane: 8/10.
The minifigures are where this set really shines. They are detailed below:
Hyperion - very nice with a cape and two facial expressions. 10/10
Space Captain America - not very different from the AoU Captain America and nothing that screams "space" but the air tank with the stars on it is a nice touch. 7/10
Space Iron-Man - I really like this version of Iron-Man. I already had several traditional "Iron-Men" and the differences between them were minuscule. This one stands out and looks great. 10/10
Captain Marvel - She looks really good and I was excited to get a less familiar female character. She actually has three faces (on two heads) which was something new. They definitely give you a lot of options for playing with this character. My only complaint (and really it is minor) is that the character in the comics has a lot of red on her arms and only her hands are red. A partial red printing on the arms would have looked amazing! 9/10
Thanos - He is the same size as Hulk, the cave trolls, and other similar shaped figures, which is fine. His face is intense and the color scheme is perfect. This character was at least 75% of the reason I got the set. 10/10
Other thoughts: I (like some other reviewers) wish that we had gotten Thanos' chair instead some flying boots, but that can be done as a MOC. Still, overall it is a great set with unique minifigs and a nice looking plane.

Rated 3 out of 5 by VaderFan2187 "The name's Thanos."
Oh yeah yeah!!! Who else is hyped up for Avengers III: Infinity War? I certainly am! Yes, this set is not from the MCU, but it has THANOS! I love Thanos! This seems like the Marvel version of 76028 Darkseid Invasion, with a jet and an evil conquering bigfig maniac on a platform. Well, Darkseid Invasion definitely provided good value for money, but what about the Avenjet?
Let's start with the minifigures.
Space Captain America: Definitely my least favourite minifigure out of the lineup, but hey, save the best for last, eh? He has an... ahem... underwater breather included, along with a jetpack which tips him off balance. Well, he looks better than his underwater counterpart.
Space Iron Man: Seriously, how many suits does ol' Stark have? Well, this is a fabulously detailed version of the suit! Love it!
Hyperion: Good minifigure. The only problem with this minifigure is he reuses Superman's head.
Captain Marvel: Great figure! Unfortunately she uses the classic lady head in Lego, but apart from that she's great!
Thanos: Fantastic!!! By far the BEST part of this set!!!!! Love this dude.
Now on to the builds... ahem...
Thanos' boots: Uh, since when did Thanos use rocket powered boots? I would have preferred a floating throne for him to sit on. By the way, when are bigfigs getting leg articulation?
Avenjet: Interesting. It is a sturdy build when completed at the end. Unfortunately, it lacks in play features. The only play feature is the liftoff of the mini jet. The Iron Man one is weird and flick missiles are lazy. The stud shooters stick out too much and are ugly. There is not a lot of SNOT (Studs Not On Top) techniques used in this set. I like the printed radar dishes but there are a few stickers in the set as well. Lego ought to get rid of stickers :/ This is only so-so.
This set, all in all, has great minifigures but debatable builds. The final product is also a bit small for the price. Get it if you love the figures BUT we're probably getting Thanos for the Infinity War sets (there are, right? Right???)
Play experience: 14/20

Rated 5 out of 5 by ManayDukers Awesome
I bought this set with some Birthday money cause it was on sale, but now holding it in my hand, I would have bought it if it were DOUBLE the original price. the mini figure selection is awesome. Being a huge Marvel fan, I had what I call a "geek attack". Thanos looks awesome, Captain Marvel in her captain costume looks amazing, I'm now waiting for a Ms. Marvel and Khamala Khan variants, and Hyperion looks great. Captain America and Space Iron Man are great too, but the other comic-characters are what I love most. The Avenjet looks amazing with the detachable "Minjet". ( see what I did there? Mini Quintet?) I love the red and white design, it just adds to the space-y feeling. I would definitely recommend this set to all of my friends, and I also recommend this set to whoever's reading this review

Rated 4 out of 5 by BentWright Better than it looks
Even though I wanted the Captain Marvel minifigure, I didn't intend to get his set because the vehicle looks boxy and I have more variations of Iron Man and Captain America that I know what to do with. I got the set for my birthday and was pleasantly surprised.
The build of the ship was fun. There are many internal (probably unnecessary) design elements that can't be seen from the outside of the ship that make for many interesting pieces to use in MOC building. The ship is sturdy and can be held by the adjustable missile launchers on its belly. It looks much better in real life than in photos.
I don't like that the Thanos figure is hunched over and looking down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dyego THANOS!
I would rate this set 5 stars if all it had was Thanos. However, the AvenJet and other minifigures are absolute stars as well. The two-ships-in-one design of the AvenJet is cleverly done and the finished model looks very nice. My only quibble is that I never quite got Space Iron Man to fit into the ship like the instructions showed, but that's not enough to lower the rating.
in short: awesome minifigures with excellent Space Iron Man printing, really cool AvenJet, and THANOS!

Rated 5 out of 5 by SkaldinShadows Pleasantly Surprised
I saw this set for the first time after photos of it were leaked and found myself excited by Captain Marvel, but disappointed that I would have to get another Avengers-themed, jet-looking build. The stock photos make this set look terribly boxy and makes it seem as though this set would have fit with older Lego aesthetics. This is not the case.
The Avenjet is a fun little build that looks fantastic when completed. The play features add just enough to make the model more interesting without taking away from the display potentials.
