After the second LEGO Idea titled “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. The Bus” caught me off guard and hit the 10,000 supporter mark, I vowed to keep on top of the newest batch of LEGO Ideas and keep you all updated. With this in mind the third Idea “Hulkbuster” designed by RayChow has just made it to the first 2017 review panel. For those who don’t know what or how this works refer to my previous blog on LEGO Ideas.
The design is based on a powerful Iron Man Mech utilizing a mix of LEGO Bionicle and more traditional LEGO bricks to create the overall look and feel. Raymond has done well projecting the power of the Mech unit in line with the Iron Man theme. The Idea is actually a bigger version (hence UCS tag) of an already released official LEGO set 76031.
Personally not sure how this will fair with Marvel theme and licence already covered extensively by LEGO. LEGO Ideas does make it clear that designs based on current licences have a smaller chance of getting through the review panel and also throw in the fact that a smaller version already officially exists.
Remember to support all those aspiring LEGO builders out there on LEGO Ideas.
