Chances are you already saw the box images from when the set hit the shelves prematurely in Indonesia, but today the 76210 Ironman Hulkbuster is officially revealed.
Based on ‘Veronica,’ appearing in Avengers 2: The Age of Ultron the 52cm, Tall Iron Man Armour Mk 44 ‘hulk Buster’ is the tallest Hulk Buster released to date. It is also the priciest, at $USD549.99 €549.99 £474.00 $CAD699.99/AUD849.99! the previous record holder, 76105 released in 2018 had 1362 elements, while this new version has 4049 pieces! In 2018, when the last larger scal hulkbuster was released, a 4000 part set would have ranked in the top 15 sets for part count. In 2022, this set barely makes it into the top 30!
But I digress.
The 76210 also has space to hold this year’s Iron Man Figure, 76206 inside the chest cavity. In retrospect, this figure, released eariler this year, bears an interesting comparision with 4529 from 2012, appearing almost 10 years after the initial constration figures helped kick off the Super Heroes range.
The model measures 52 cm high, and 37cm wide. It comes with a sticker on an information plate, as well as a stand to support the model.
18 October 2022: Today, the LEGO® Group is excited to announce its latest LEGO Marvel Studios’™ Release – The Iron Man™ Hulkbuster™ set, featuring Iron Man as he appeared in the mega-hit film Infinity Saga – Age of Ultron.
Consisting of 4,049 pieces and standing 52 cm tall, the LEGO Hulkbuster is impressive in size and boasts an incredible amount of detail. The red and gold set depicts the MK44 – the 44th version of the Iron Man suit and features posable arms, a light brick on the chest, and a light brick on each hands. There is also an accessible cockpit, which can fit the Iron Man figure 76206 inside. The set also includes a Tony Stark Minifigure and an information stand for the separator to be displayed on.
This premium and highly collectible massive LEGO set is a great way to show off your passion for superhero films, comic books and of course, Iron Man and the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).
The LEGO® Marvel™ Iron Man™ Hulkbuster™ set is RRP €549.99 / $549.99 / £474.99 and is available exclusively for LEGO VIP members from 4th November 2022 and from LEGO Stores and www.LEGO.com/hulkbuster from 9th November 2022.
As has been the trend in recent months – I’m looking at you, Black Panther Bust and Razor Crest, this is a big set, featuring a lot of bricks, occupying a good deal of shelf space, and emptying your wallet in the process. Perhaps one of those ‘Mid priced sets’ such as the Sanctum Sanctorum, or the Mighty Bowser is more your style: If this is a model that appeals to you, and you have space to display it, then I suspect you will love it, despite any concerns you might have regarding its resemblence to the source material. Of course, the price is significant: at AUD$849.99 it is not for the faint hearted. But if you have dedicated yourself to collecting every available Iron Man Suit to date, you may well feel obliged to take this one on, even if it is designed to fit in witha pilot that is larger than Minifigure scale.
The time has come where collecting every Adult Focussed LEGO set, because that’s what you do, is quite possibly over, and it may be more appropriate to reconsider what you will actually enjoy building and displaying.
