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.

Recommendation: no 3.5 / 5 by Jackaroo1701

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.

Recommendation: no 3 / 5 by Jay

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.

Recommendation: no 3 / 5 by Vaderfan2187

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.

Recommendation: no 3 / 5 by Allen "Tormentalous" Tran

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.

Recommendation: no 2 / 5 by Nick Martin

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.
