Officially unveiled this morning, we were able to see the new 76105 LEGO Marvel Super Heroes The Hulkbuster: Ultron Edition set at Toy Fair in New York ourselves. The set will retail for $120 and includes 1,363 pieces, with a release date on March 3.
Standing at 10.4 inches (26.5 cm) tall, we can see an interchangeable weaponry arm and an arc reactor that hosts a light brick. Also unique is an exclusive minifigure of Tony Stark’s Mark 34 Iron Man armor, complete with a tiny UCS-like panel.

The term ‘cafe racer’ actually originated amongst motorcyclists from the London area in the early 1960s when bikes were used for short, quick rides between cafés. These lightweight bikes were designed for speed, agility and handling rather than comfort – hence the relatively short distance covered before the need to stop for a brew. BenFifteenTheChicken has built a LEGO version of the cafe racer owner by Marvel’s The Punisher character, it’s a fun little build with some clever techniques to capture the bike in minifigure scale.
Ben has kindly provided instructions to allow you to build your own cafe racer and the parts list is shown. Don’t worry if you do not have all the parts in the correct colours, just use the pieces you have and enjoy building a unique cafe racer for your own minifigures.

South African builder Wayne de Beer made the rounds a few months back with hisTallneck build from Horizon Zero Dawn that he graciously released with instructions to build your own. Now he’s doing the same with his own microscale version of the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier featured in a few of the Marvel movies. It uses less than a hundred pieces and can be made with regular pieces alone, or improved with a few printed pieces and stickers.

Warner Bros Games and LEGO have united once more to create an all-new, epic adventure and sequel to the smash hit, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes with their new game, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2. The game follows an original branching storyline, co-written by comic book veteran Kurt Busiek, that follows on directly where LEGO Marvel Super Heroes left off. Players are transported into 18 different Marvel locations that have been “ripped from time and space into the incredible open hub world of Chronopolis”.
You can see a bit of the gameplay in the official trailer:
At first glance this wee Hulkbuster looks enormous, then you realise that Iron Man’s head is that of the Minifigure and Tony Stark’s infamous arc reactor is a single tiny element. The Ka. Lor Project has created the Hulkbuster, Crimson for your viewing pleasure. As the name suggests, the Hulkbuster was specifically designed for hand-to-hand combat with the rampaging Hulk. During its maiden run, the armour enabled Stark to temporarily hold his own in sustained physical combat with the Hulk. This mighty miniature has so many fine details and tons of tiny greebling, I love everything about this heavy Hulk harrassing hybrid.
Builder nobu_tary delves deeply into the blocky nature of LEGO bricks with this pair of Stark hardsuits. This building style is very distinctive and I love the exaggerated effect. There’s a ton of small details to look for such as the shades of old grey vs new grey pieces in War Machine, the use of an official Iron Man print, and a very clever slit technique for the “eyes”. All topped off with that signature mecha pose; let’s puff out those chests, boys!

Many of you have probably seen the official LEGO Milano 76081 from the new Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2, or maybe even read our review of the microscale Milano which LEGO is currently giving away. Tyler Clites liked the ship so much, he made his own custom 3000 piece minifig-scale version with full interior! At 2 feet wide and a foot long, Tyler has recreated the unique shapes and curves of the craft with some very clever building techniques; the “beak” of the ship looks fantastic, and he has captured the swept back wings and feathered ailerons with style.
Tyler also teamed up with The Brick Show to show off all the details in his model:
When I first laid eyes on this, my brain refused to comprehend the crossover theme! Builder BrickinNick certainly accomplished his mission to put me in a daze. At first glance, I could see Chewbacca and Han Solo, but then something told me it was also Groot and his buddy Rocket Racoon. So is it a Groobacca and a Han Raccoon duo or a Chroot and a Rocket Solo team? You take your pick! I’m still bewildered and amazed.
