Avengers, assemble! Literally. Lego just unveiled what may be the ultimate collector's item for Iron Man fans. Behold, the Marvel Super Heroes The Hulkbuster: Ultron Edition.
Lego announced the new Hulkbuster mech set at the 2018 Toy Fair New York on Saturday. The set will hit shelves March 3 and retail for $119.99. With 1,362 pieces, the new Hulkbuster is much larger than Lego's first version of the mech (which was released in 2015 and came with 248 pieces).
The new Hulkbuster stands 9 inches high (25 centimeters), is 3 inches long (10 cm) and 8 inches wide (22 cm). It includes a flip-up head (revealing an Iron Man Mark 43 minifigure inside), as well as a rotating torso, posable fingers, arms, legs and feet. Two interchangeable arms let you choose between a jackhammer arm and standard limb.
As in Avengers: Age of Ultron, this Hulkbuster set features a chest light that you can activate by pressing a button on the back. Miniature versions of Tony Stark's hot rod and the Veronica satellite (to hold the Hulkbuster until it's needed) are also included.
While the set can stand on its own, Lego also includes a display platform, complete with an information plate and robot arms to hold Hulkbuster's arms in a nifty scene.
The Hulkbuster: Ultron Edition is clearly meant for display Iron Man fans and collectors, separating it from 2015's smaller The Hulk Buster Smash set, which was designed for kid play.
