In the Marvel universe every superhero will have to fight the Hulk at least once. Hulk vs. Thor, Hulk vs. Wolverine, Hulk vs. Juggernaut… the DC Comics superheroes are not immune to the Hulk with Hulk vs. Superman, and Hulk vs. Batman. Even Iron Man has had his share of Hulk fights. In such a fight, Tony Stark usually comes prepared and brings out his custom Hulk fighting armor… the Hulkbuster!
Jonsanpedro has created a project for an official Lego Iron Man: Hulkbuster set over at the Lego Cuusoo page. The Hulkbuster proposed in this project is an amalgamation of many suits. This particular version is an exoskeleton that fits over the standard Iron Man armor.
This build merges together two of the most popular Lego themes out there. Iron Man and Mech suits, creating a huge fan base. This Hulkbuster is fully posable with multiple articulation points. Even the little Iron Man minifigure nestles in and become the “head” of the Mech. These details create a build that has a huge amount of charm and personality. Just look at this photo of Iron Man and Pepper Potts…

Just in time for the new release of Iron Man 3 comes a new Lego set. This one focusing on what might be the definitive scene from the film. This set comes with 5 minifigs, Tony Stark, Iron Man in Mark 42 armor, Pepper Potts, the Mandarin, and an Extremis soldier. That is a lot of figures for such a set. The Malibu mansion is a super abbreviated version from the film, containing a workshop, hall of armor, and a kitchen. Lego has done a great job with their Super Heroes line. LEGO Iron Man: Malibu Mansion Attack (76007) is currently for sale on Amazon too.
Captain Nemo over at Eurobricks posted a great review of the Lego Iron Man Malibu Mansion Attack.
Fun fact: Lego spoiled the surprise that Pepper Potts wears the Iron Man armor on the box cover!
