Recommendation: meh average 4.8 / 5 from 478 reviews

For getting Iron Man(and his Hulkbuster), along with a Hulk bigfig, Ultron, and Scarlet Witch, the $30 price is unbeatable. Of the Age of Ultron sets, this is clearly the winner.

These two sets are must buy for hulkbuster fans like me. They are really nice to pose and play and photograph with! They do make me kind of ignored the existence of the minifigures in the sets. Haha.

Recommendation: yes average 9 / 10 by Tereglith

When the first pictures came out, I was skeptical - the Hulkbuster looked like a bit of a mish-mash, and too big for its own good. But now that I've built it and held it, I have a great appreciation for what the designers managed to do. They packed a ton of detail and articulation into one of the smallest Lego mechs yet, and the end result is really slick. And when it comes with three great figures and an awesome new version of the Hulk too? Well, that's just icing on the cake.

Overall even with the few minor issues I have with with The Hulk Buster Smash (76031) set, it is still probably my second favorite set of the Age of Ultron wave. I do like the general look of the Hulk Buster suit including the new printed head piece for it. Another draw of the set are the minifigures that are included. Both Scarlet Witch and Ultron Prime will only appear in this particular wave of sets.

As a MARVEL and LEGO fan, it was great to find this set had been made to reflect a key battle scene in the recent film. The set comes in a usual box with high detail print showing off the contents of the box. Upon opening, you find the parts have been seperated into numbered bags which hints at a slightly more complicated build. This was a fun set to build and was very well delivered in the instruction manual, breaking up the build into stages to save opening all of the bags that contain the parts at once. I think this would help greatly for those who are younger as it makes the build seem much more simpler, and saves losing any small parts whilst searching for the ones required as you are making each set. The four characters are well detailed, with Hulk scaled up to better match his size in comparison to the other figures. The Iron Man character has a different print on the armour to that of other sets, reflecting the different suits Tony has. Ultron also has a different print and detail to his suit when compared to other sets as his suit has been improved from his initial physical creation The Hulk Buster suit itself was the best part of this set, building it felt more advanced, and the use of the model is great because of the ability to place Iron Man inside the suit and then actually use it in the way you see it move in the film. The addition of the wrist cannon that actually fires barrel studs is great too, meaning less is needed to be left to the imagination when it comes to playing One thing that let this set down a little bit was the scale of the container that is meant to hold Hulk back. The panels could have been a third of the size larger to better match the height of the Hulk figure.> This is a minor issue really, as the cage does what it is intended for with this set, and does make having it on display better because the Hulk is openly visible when the panels are still raised

Hulkbuster looks nice, but it's a bit too big next to Hulk. The net thing seems tacked on.

I'm pretty sure I've never owned a LEGO superhero set before this one, and it's definitely a great one to buy if you're a fan of Marvel or just like cool LEGO sets. $30 for 248 pieces might seem high, but the sum of the parts is absolutely worth it. I'm glad I pick this up and if there's only one LEGO superheroes set you buy this year, you should make it this one!

Once you are done building the Hulk Buster, you will have an amazing articulating machine, that not only holds Iron Man inside, but it shoots blasters from its right arm. It can also grasp a mini figure in its hand, like the Ultron in this set, for example! Also, keep in mind, the blasters actually shoot very well. Make sure the kids aren't pointing them at each other, especially someones eye!
