This is a Fantastic set. My favorite hero is Iron Man so this is one of my most favorite sets (other than Hulkbuster, of course, which I did a review on). The Iron Man suit is absolutely awesome, but I think they have over used the Tony Stark head. I think Lego should make more than two Tony Stark heads but thats just my opinion. The Ultron sentries are cool and the way they stick to the vehicle is neat. The gray stud guns are a nice plus to the set. the super-jumper function is the best one yet, very easy to use (once you get the hang of the super-jumper, I got it quickly but other people have not. its the getting the minifig off thats hard). I think it is very much worth buying.
I'm not sure what LEGO was doing with the Ultron figure here, but it's a decent set. The ship is based on an Ultron-5 scout ship from the original comics. I'm impressed with the research the designer did and it's a good set for kids.
Kids are going to love the new Super Jumper piece in this set, which brings a little more action to the building play. This is a cool set for letting fans of Avengers: Age of Ultron build and play out a favorite scene or use their imaginations to create all-new superhero stories.
The Iron Man vs Ultron set gives me mixed feelings. It's got good figures but the build is worse than that of the 76008 set, which isn't held in high regard by the AFOL community. Still, it has some play value (although not many people like super-jumpers, so that limits play significantly) but all in all, this is a cheap set. In Australia I can buy 4 minifigures, or I can buy this and get 4 minifigures plus a build.

If you're a Super Heroes or Avengers fan, you're almost mandated to get this set because of the Mark 45 armour and Ultron henchmen. At $5 per minifigure, it's almost the same as buying Minifigure Blind Bags and you also have the added bonus of a bunch of varied grey parts. If you don't care about Super Heroes or the Avengers, there's not much here that will interest you.
Overall, an exceptional minifigure selection with an utterly disappointing build. The playability comes from the four minifigures but the build itself contributes little to no play value. The price is okay, but the model feels kind of piece-light which is disappointing.
Overall, I feel this set is rather weak mainly because of the actual vehicle build. The main draw are actually the minifigures and as stated before, all four minifigurs are exclusive to this set. I'm not sure why the set is called Iron Man vs. Ultron (76029) because with a set name like that, you would think that the actual Ultron minifigure would be included instead of his minions.
Holding this in your hand, even for a $13 set, you feel like something is missing. Even the Star Wars battle packs come with more parts than this, honestly. Part of the problem is once you pull the minifigs out, you're left with so little, while most of the packs don't use minifigs as parts.
I am having a tough time making a judgement about this set. The minifigures are outstanding and it is excellent to be able to so easily assemble an army for Ultron to command. The model itself on the other hand is pretty awful in my opinion, particularly if you do not wish to attach the minifigures to it.
Compared to the Iron Man vs Mandarin set from 2013 and Captain America's Avenging Cycle in 2012, this one is streets ahead. More minifigs and a better vehicle for the same $13 is pretty great and it'd work great as an army builder. I may pick up another one for that exact purpose. That said, the minifigs are your main reason for getting it as there's not much else going on here.
