There are lots and lots of Fighter Pods and their HasbroToyShop exclusives were so HUGE this year that people brought handcarts to haul that SHIELD Helicarrier, which along with the Carbonite Chamber set, probably won't last through Sunday if past big sized exclusives like the Death Star and Galactus are  any indication.
