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.

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!

What a set!.. it's worthy of a UCS TitleGot this on 1st day release and couldn't wait to get it built up.. from the first day I saw pictures of it that had been leaked on Instagram I knew that I had to have it.. and wow does it impress! I was expecting it to be good but it's even better in person, it's a set that surprises you with its size because you see on the box that it's overall height is 26cm and you naturally think 'Thats not very tall' but when it's built and in front of you it's surprisingly bigger than what you first thought. The build took me 5 hours and was one of the more pleasent builds I've done.. there's a little repitition involved but nothing major enough to put you off. Some nice techniques are used and there's some really nice pieces in new colours that surprised me and that new dome element for the head has the most amazing printing. There's a few stickers involved in the set and they are the clear backing type so to avoid leaving finger prints on the adhesive side I used a pair of tweezers to apply them.. they are relatively easy to apply anyway.. the usual Large UCS Plaque sticker took a couple of lining up attempts to get just right with no Air bubbles but that is the norm for that particular sticker (no UCS Plaque sticker has beaten me yet so I'm still winning with that one) there's some nice glow in the dark elements in the build and they are really an improvement of previous glow in the dark pieces. The stand is a nice addition to pose and display the final model and comes complete with 2 robotic arms that look really impressive, aswel as they can be positioned in any pose, there is also an exclusive minifigure in the form of Ironman kitted up in the MK43 suit which has never appeared in a Lego set before, this also sets on its own 1x2 micro display with a small sticker applied. Also thrown in on the accessories side is a micro hot rod model, a fire extinguisher, and the Veronica Satellite. There is also a work display table that has 2 clear computer screens mounted on top, one has the image of the Veronica Satellite and the other has an image of the MK44 domed head of the Hulkbuster. Another note to mention is the robotic arms and table can be moved and repositioned from either the left or the right side of the display platform.. there is 8 technic axles that can accommodate them (4 on the left of the base and 4 on the right) the creme dear la crème of the base is the flip up UCS Plaque.. it can either be laid flat or flipped upright with all the details on display for all to see.. I love that little touch and really applaud the work of the designers for using a simple yet brilliant idea makes its way into an official set. When the build all finally comes together and you but the Finished Hulkbuster on its display stand it looks truly awesome! It really really does.. all you have to do then is find a suitable and good pose for it, I admit I would love to have seen this with knee articulation but I have a feeling it can be added with a little tweaking here and there, and I'm sure the MOCCERS out there are going to be adding knee joints as we speak and posting their results online. What you will realise whilst building the set is how much detail there is in the thing.. there is tonnes of detail! Even the soles of the feet have the rocket thrusters in! It's a detail that hardly anybody will ever see but it's there and its good that the design team wanted to put it in to make it feel complete, also the light brick in the chest to represent the power core... it didn't have to be in there but it is and it looks and works perfectly, also all the small gold elements and the little Greebling techniques really add to make this one of the most beautiful and impressive sets out there now and that there has ever been. As for playability I really do think it's limited in many regards, mainly down to these small pieces getting knocked off, I personally think it's a display set, It looks absolutely brilliant on display and is a truly phenomenal representation of the MK44.. I honestly can't recommend this enough. Get one now before it gets put into the infamous 'back order' status

DisappointmentThere is only a few good things I can say about this set. You get some excellent parts to build your own hulkbuster set. You get a nice iron man minifigure. The display stand is nice. Being able to switch out the arms is a nice feature.
This set is terrible. I attached a picture of my absolute biggest problem. There is no support in the feet and the entire hulkbuster leans forward. This is strictly a display set, and I can't even display it due to the fact it looks terrible.
The knees don't bend.
I don't like the glow pieces.
I thought the blue pins would really bother me as they stick out like a sore thumb, but they aren't terrible. I guess the set leaning forward catches my attention more than the pins do.
I will be doing some serious modifications to this set, but I shouldn't have to.
Expect to do some serious modifications to this set if you get it.
