LEGO unveiled the much-awaited 76105 LEGO Marvel Super Heroes The Hulkbuster: Ultron Edition (whew!) at the New York Toy Fair earlier today. The set, based on Iron Man’s Hulkbuster armor seen in Avengers: Age of Ultron, includes 1,363 pieces and an exclusive Iron Man minifigure, with availability from LEGO stores starting on March 3rd for $119.99 USD.
Several LEGO sets based on this summer’s upcoming mega-blockbuster Marvel’s Avengers Infinity War sets have been revealed, available sometime in March. Each set comes with it’s own unique Infinity Gem, so if you want them for Thanos’ gauntlet, you’ll have to collect them all.
The Brothers Brick will bring you pictures of the actual sets this weekend with our hands-on coverage from the New York Toy Fair, so stay tuned for more information. The pictures below contain some spoilers for the movie, so proceed with caution.

A few days ago we reviewed the first four LEGO BrickHeadz characters, all from The LEGO Batman Movie. Today we’re moving on to the second four characters in BrickHeadz Series 1, the Marvel characters. We get Captain America, Iron Man, Black Widow, and The Hulk. Like all the BrickHeadz, they will retail for $9.99 USD, and they’re available beginning Feb. 15 for LEGO VIP-card holders both in LEGO stores and from the LEGO Shop Online.
As we mentioned in our last review, each of the characters’ boxes are numbered for Series 1, with the DC characters being 1-4, the Marvel characters 5-8, and the Disney characters 11-12. The back of the Disney character boxes reveal what the missing two characters are, but LEGO has asked us not to show them yet, although images are available elsewhere.
Supervillains rarely succeed, and for good reason. The minute they kill off their eternal foes, the story ends – which is why it’s so great to actually see them win! Cid Hsiao shows us one of those rare bloody victories in the form of Ultron’s throne. Here the devious robot Ultron can laugh from atop the broken corpses of the Avengers and intimidate any would-be challengers – assuming he hasn’t yet also destroyed the world, that is.
Let’s climb in the way-back machine, constant reader and check out this microscale Avengers Helicarrier from June of last year. The builder is TBB regular Jack Marquez Ewok in Disguise, who brings his typical style and skill to the rather unlikely vehicle.
A more recent take on the Helicarrier come from MOCpages resident Sariel, who adds light, motion and out of scale minifigs to the creative mix. Nick Fury would no doubt be pleased…if he is ever pleased.
