This design matches the source material reasonably closely but the space between the three armour segments is larger than would be ideal.

The attachment of the legs to the torso is also done better, although it is still far from being accurate. There's also an alternate element, with two different lower left arm options - a standard and the jackhammer arm that rotates sharply. It is certainly no replica search for Hot Toys Hulkbuster if you want to see how it ought to look and even with the limited poseability it does not feel 100% stable although it probably is. Next in the pipeline is the large Star Wars Y-Wing I picked up on May the 4th Be With You. The Build The first part of the Hulkbuster to be built is the torso.
The upper limbs are a much more mobile, with shoulder, elbow and hand movements all possible at those joints. This solves some of the problems of the previous Hulkbuster looking too square and robot-like. Another interesting 2018 part is the with rounded ends. It makes for a very striking piece on your shelf, that much is certain. There are two mobile robot arms — one for each side of the platform — which can be moved between 8 alternate attachment points. The platform with Veronica control on the screen is simple, with stickers applied to the Trans.
It is about the same size as the first Hulkbuster, but with more rounded shapes, taking advantage of a number of recently introduced pieces. The base itself is a fairly solid build with one of the 8×16 Black tiles connected to allow it to act as a display. The Ultron Edition Hulkbuster includes two interchangeable left arms; a regular one, and a jackhammer arm with punching function. I am really impressed by the look of this set, and look forward to seeing it in real life after its release. And lastly, there is an exclusive Iron Man Mark 43 minifigure that has unique printing that has never been before featured in previous Marvel sets. I was looking for this set since the fan submitted Lego Ideas kit was not approved by Lego. A pair of trans-light blue control panels are found inside the chest and there is room to place Iron Man between them.

The pearl gold details look magnificent though and they continue onto the sides of the torso, ensuring that the model looks complete when viewed from every angle. The torso is made up out of two bags, so it takes a little time to get the first body part done. An alternative jackhammer arm is also included, replicating a memorable moment from Avengers: Age of Ultron as Iron Man attempts to subdue the Hulk. This particular colour has been appearing in more and more 2018 sets, and there are five supplied in this set, used to build two of the accessories that sit on the base. The most common fan complaint was that the initial build offered was too large, and wildly out of scale with Lego's Hulk fig. Theme: Marvel Super Heroes No: 76105 Release Year: 2018 Cost: Pieces: 1363 with one minifigure When was in mid-February, it was the cause of both some serious excitement and a lot of not so great feedback. Furthermore, the articulation is limited which is an inevitable result of the Hulkbuster's impressive size but makes it quite difficult to create dynamic poses.
The manufacturer suggests this set for ages 14+. What it sacrifices in playability it more than makes up for in detail. As you can see, even the fire extinguisher has to be balanced onto the fingers rather than actually being grasped. Where the shaping of the model lacks is at the hips; the joints are exposed, and the transition between the torso and legs is crude. Their proportions could be improved though as the upper arms appear too narrow in relation to the Hulkbuster's design in the movie. A method of remotely activating this jackhammer function would have been ideal but that may have compromised the articulation.
There a couple of two hinged panels though which conceal additional thrusters. One of the arms has a fire extinguisher in it. The build alone was amazing and I had a great time putting him all together. The first thing I'll say is the Hulkbuster is a solid kit. The small details of this Hulkbuster is what does it for me.

These stand out against the surrounding armour and the pearl gold highlights look wonderful too. I'm a huge Lego marvel fan and knew I had to have this as soon as I saw it. I think bulking up the shoulders would significantly improve the look of this model, although that may also limit the posability. Alternatively, there are is a bit of play with this part of the set as the robot arms can be manipulated into positions and the little accessories can be enjoyed. Oh, I put the build time at 12 hours. The rubber tires on the feet, I assume are to give it traction so it doesn't slide around, but at least for the one I put together, the tires make the whole thing difficult to stand up since the tires protrude from the bottom of the feet. I really enjoyed building it and it looks great on display.
This list includes the Plate W. One thing that I think could've been worked on is the tendency to lean forward or backwards based on the pose for stability like maybe special weighted bricks in the feet but this isn't a fail on the set. Even so, this set has numerous positive attributes in my opinion so is worthy of further discussion. Even if they scaled back the detail of the display stand so that they could get the suit really looking the hefty part. It includes space for a minifigure to sit, along with the light brick which allows the Arc Reactor to glow. For fans of Iron Man, I suspect it is an easy decision to purchase this set. He also has a tendency to lean when in a standing position, due to those flexible ankles and lack of knees.
