LEGO Marvel Avengers: Infinity War – The Hulkbuster Smash-Up (76104) Review
The new Hulkbuster set from LEGO, based on the design from Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War features a posable Hulkbuster, which features an opening minifigure cockpit and bashing arm function. This action-packed set also includes a ball-shooting gun turret with an opening rear compartment containing the Infinity Stone element, Falcon’s buildable wings with a detachable Redwing drone element and 4 minifigures, Bruce Banner, Falcon, Proxima Midnight and an Outrider.
Here is a look at the packaging:
This LEGO set offers a little bit of everything, an awesome Hulkbuster, a great villain weapon and some excellent minifigures.
The Hulkbuster is without doubt the star of the set, its fantastic and one of my favourite builds for a long time. It’s got lots of movement, due to the amount of ball joints for the limbs, plus the fingers on the hand add more flexibility. I also think having a knob on the back to move its arm up and down is another great addition. Plus having a little hatch within the front that opens up to put a Bruce Banner minifigure in is great too, especially with the two different facial expressions, one with a hint of green!
I love the Falcon minifigure, the detail on the body and face are perfect and I like how the wings are such a huge piece, I would have expected something much smaller. My only gripe is that these are stickers rather than printed directly.
The Proxima Midnight minifigure is a nice addition to this set and I love the blue hairpiece and weapon accessory. Unfortunately I’m not really too familiar with the character (yet!) so it’s difficult to be amazed by it.
The gun turret is a cool little addition and offers plenty of fun, especially with the big ball which can be fired off by squeezing the bars together. The Outrider Minifigure is also great, I love the way the extra hands on his back make it stand out. Plus the figure has lots of detail, though until I’ve seen the movie, this part doesn’t make much sense.
Here is my video review of this LEGO Marvel set:
This is one of my favourite LEGO sets I’ve built, I absolutely love the Hulkbuster, the arm mechanism, the mini cockpit and the overall attention to detail make this a must buy. Throw in Falcon and a cool turret, make this a fantastic set.
