Excellent build with ONE glaring flawI was looking for this set since the fan submitted Lego Ideas kit was not approved by Lego. We all knew they had something in the plans and this is it.
Let me first start by saying this is a very enjoyable build. The platform, extras, and interchangeable arm are a brilliant idea, adding context and detail. The Hulkbuster armor itself has enough bulk and detail to make any fan happy. I wish the knees would bend, but I guess the designers opted for stability and more detail instead of actual knees. Can't really blame them.
Up to that point I was back to being a little boy, excitedly building the figure.
But I cannot express enough disappointment at the choice of LED light to represent the ARC reactor. Instead of the bright bluish white, as it was in the movies and on the Lego box kit, Lego opted for a (very much cheaper) yellowish/orange LED and has you place a blue translucent block in front of it. My guess to try and mask the color.
It does not work. It is an horrible choice and would ruin the set if it wasn't such a cool build. For that reason I am knocking one star out of what should be a perfect 5 star kit imo.
If you don't mind such details, by all means go for it. It is and looks pretty awesome.
But I can't help but wish that Lego would re-issue the LED light to every owner. It is that bad. Realistically, I will be looking for a replacement and will refrain from pre-ordering sets like this until they are reviewed.

Pretty disappointing...I'm pretty disappointed in the design of this set. There are some interesting details and it looks okay, but the proportions are a little off.
The first minifigure scale Hulkbuster set Lego released looks far more interesting and has posability and some functionality that is just awesome. This one looks kind of flat and boring and seems to lack "bulk".
The worst part about this design, however, is the complete lack of posability in the legs aside from being able to bend the "hip" joints outward in a "splits" position. The ball joints in the ankles are far too weak to hold the Hulkbuster up very well so the entire thing either leans far forward or backward making the thing look very odd, like it's about to tip over in either direction. There is no real in between and it looks awful. I think giving the set bendable knees might have helped this a little bit.
I will say, however, that the feet are wide enough and have enough grip to make this set pretty darned sturdy. Despite it looking like it's about to topple over any minute, the thing will NOT lose its balance, even with a good push or a shake of the table it's standing on. Believe me, I tested it very well.
Overall I would recommend saving your money and going with the far superior (and far more affordable) minifigure scale Hulkbuster sets. Sorry Lego, but this one is a dud!

Hulkbuster reviewI picked this one up on Saturday, and finished the build today. I have seen most of the comments on this set re the pro's and con's. So this is my two cents worth...
Overall I like it, it's a good looking set when finished, with a couple of reservations. I found the build very easy and quite satisfying. They seem to have got the red and gold colour scheme spot-on.
The articulation on the piece is not too bad. Plenty of movement on the arms, but it would have been better if the legs could move forward and backward, which would have given it more stability and poseability. With a little trial and error its not too difficult to get it into a stable position, but I may use some blu tac underneath it just in case.
The Iron Man figure fits nicely inside the head (I had seen some early reviews saying it didn't, but it most definitely does), and the light brick is a nice touch. I believe that the round white pieces are supposed to be luminous, but so far I have not been able to test this out. But I think it would also have been a nice touch to have added a light brick to one of the arms, to simulate the blaster effect.
Yes, the two blue pins on the upper body are a little off-putting, but they are very small and it would'nt be too much of a problem to replace them, or even mask them off inn some way.
Overall the good outweighs the bad for me. There is a lot of nice, chunky detail to the set, and it looks great when finished and displayed.

Excellent SetI've been meaning to get my hands on this for quite some time, so I was super excited to finally see it in store.
The build alone was amazing and I had a great time putting him all together. He stands fine, the rubber grips in both his feet and the stand are a great addition. He's very poseable and holds the poses well. He lacks knee joints which is a little bit of a drawback, but nothing so much that it takes away from the overall piece. He's sturdy, he's fun, I love it!
