Tony can also be slotted into the gigantic mech. The Hulkbuster will retail for US $549.99 | CAN $699.99 | UK £474.99 when it’s available starting Nov. 4 for LEGO VIP members.

LEGO Marvel 76216 Iron Man Armory [Review]

Iron Man 2 came out more than a decade ago. But the power of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is such that, even 12 years later, LEGO’s target audience can still be expected to have seen the film. At the time, LEGO didn’t do any real, specific tie-in for the movie. But they’re making up for that now with set 76216 Iron Man Armory. While this set draws from multiple of Tony Stark’s on-screen adventures, it’s got a definite preference for the Armored Avenger’s second cinematic outing. This 496-piece set will be available on June 1st from the LEGO Shop Online for US $89.99 | CAN $119.99 | UK TBD.

LEGO Marvel Superheroes Mech Armor mania: Wolverine, Iron Man, & Black Panther [Review]

The one constant about Tony Stark is that he’s always working on upgrades; portable suitcase armor, Hulkbuster add-ons, nanotech. And now it seems he’s helping his friends armor up with a line of Marvel Mechs from LEGO. Miles Morales, Thor, and Cap already got in on the fun, and now Wolverine and Black Panther are joining Tony in a new wave. Does mech armor make the hero as much as clothes make the man? Or are these largely extraneous accessories for what are already Earth’s Mightiest Heroes? Let’s find out with a closer look at 76202 Wolverine Mech Armor (142 pieces, US $9.99 | CAN $13.99 | UK £8.99), 76203 Iron Man Mech Armor (131 pieces, US $9.99 | CAN $13.99 | UK £8.99), and 76204 Black Panther Mech Armor (125 pieces, US $9.99 | CAN $13.99 | UK £8.99), which are scheduled to drop on April 1st.

LEGO Brick Sketches 40535 Iron Man & 40536 Miles Morales [Review]

Brick Sketches are a relatively new LEGO theme that debuted in 2020, based on a popular series of builds by LEGO designer Chris McVeigh, from back when he was just a humble fan. Brick Sketches blend 3D sculpture and 2D art to create brick-built portraits of popular characters suitable for hanging on your wall. So far, LEGO has officially released Brick Sketches for only three of its IP licenses – Star Wars, Disney, and DC Comics. But Marvel joins in the fun this April 1st with the release of the 200-piece 40535 Iron Man US $16.99 | CAN $19.99 | UK £14.99 and the 214-piece 40536 Miles Morales US $16.99 | CAN $19.99 | UK £14.99. But will these sets draw you in? Or are they kind of sketchy?

This upgraded Iron Man armor is ready for battle.

I recently reviewed LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 76206 Iron Man Figure and found it to be a fun, if slightly flawed, take on the ol’ Aluminum Avenger. Builder Nobu_Tary must have felt similarly, because they’ve taken a stab at giving the set an upgrade. Nobu’s approach gives the armor a thicker neck, reshapes the torso, and hides the visible hip joints beneath some inverted slopes. Plus Nobu has eliminated the need for many of the stickers on the set’s arms and legs by building out similar detail with appropriately colored tiles and slopes. If you dig the upgrades, you might want to check out Nobu’s other mech and figure builds right here.


LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 76206 Iron Man Figure [Review]

The cinematic story of Tony Stark came to an end with the release of 2019’s Avengers: Endgame. But, for the true icons of pop culture, the merch doesn’t stop just because the story has ended. Robert Downey, Jr.’s portrayal of Iron Man is joining the likes of Darth Vader and Optimus Prime as someone who lives on in the toy aisle long after they’ve passed away on screen. LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 76206 Iron Man Figure is a 381 piece-set that releases from LEGO on January 1st for US $39.99 | CAN $49.99 | UK £34.99. But is it a worthy celebration of Iron Man as an icon of the toy aisle? Let’s find out.

“What If...?” Killmonger drones ready for action

Spoilers ahead! If you haven’t seen this week’s episode of Maevel’s “What If…?” on Disney+ then you’ll want to avoid checking out this awesome Killmonger drone from talented TBB alum Simon Liu. Otherwise, come take a look with us!

Liberator Drone Mk3

Originally designed by Killmonger as a school project, the Liberator combat drone reached its full potential in the hands of Tony Stark. The drones saw action against the armies of Wakanda but were ultimately defeated.

Simon must have built this quickly since the Liberator drone has only been seen on screens since Wednesday. This drone makes excellent use of dark green with white highlights. I love the shaping of the torso and arms, as they look pretty accurate to what we saw in the episode. That red eye is so intimidating and shows that you don’t need a super complex LEGO building technique to pull off a cool effect.

Iron Man’s muscular mech suit, Igor, is here to save the day

First featured in Iron Man 3, the Mark 38 (as known as Igor), is the predecessor to the Hulkbuster. Ransom Fern has constructed this accurate interpretation of the original design with the ability to pose. By building in this scale, Ransom has been able to portray the muscular proportions in great detail. The bend at the torso is particularly effective in terms of suggesting the upper strength of the suit. Wedge pieces represent the eyes and ridged tiles create the angled cheek bones. At the shoulders, slide plates act as segmented sections of armour. Even the striped patterns at the arms and legs have been replicated. It’s great to see some love for the suit as Igor, especially in this intricate form.

Everything you need for your Hall of Armor [Instructions]

All the best superheroes have a cool base of operations. The Batcave, the Fortress of Solitude, an aunt’s apartment in Queens. But the best (or at least the poshest) superhero base has got to be Tony Stark’s seaside estate, and the Hall of Armor contained within. And it’s no wonder so many LEGO builders are working up custom versions of Stark’s Hall of Armor. What better way to put those multiple armor minifigures on display? But, to make a proper Hall of Armor, you need to surround Tony with all of his toys. Thankfully, KosBrick has come to the rescue with enough tutorials to fill a mansion in Malibu.

Building an Iron Man Gauntlet? It’s a snap! (maybe)

Building large-scale movie prop replicas actually isn’t easy at all, but Flickr builder Claudio Tavella makes it look like a snap. This 702-piece, Infinity-Gem-laden Iron Man gauntlet looks every bit as impressive as the real thing. There’s even a great video of it, showing off the full “in the round” view.  My favorite details are the curve at the wrist and the transparent cheese slopes as the gems. And, of course, that movie-accurate “snapping” pose.  Getting human shaping like that to read correctly is another tricky thing to reproduce well.

LEGO Iron Man Gauntlet

It feels like this would be a great companion set to the upcoming 7619 Infinity Gauntlet. We can only hope that when and if LEGO takes its own stab at this, the results are equally stellar.

First LEGO set from Marvel Studios “What If...?” revealed; 76194 Tony Stark’s Sakaarian Iron Man [News]

Thanks to Amazon, we’re getting a look at the first set based on Marvel’s upcoming alternate-universe animated show What If…? that’s set to air on Disney+ starting in August. 76194 Tony Stark’s Sakaarin Iron Man features a strange version of what appears to be the Hulkbuster armor cobbled together from Sakaarian scrap. Sakaar is the junk planet that Thor, Loki, and Hulk were stranded on in Thor: Ragnarok. The 369-piece set includes Valkyrie and The Watcher, along with Tony Stark sporting an alternate-universe Metallica shirt with an easter-egg throwback for fans of classic LEGO themes such as Exploriens. There’s no word yet on the specific release date or price.
