It can be surprising just how long some LEGO-related speculative news and rumors could linger until substantiated or debunked. Just as 2021 was coming to an end, we got wind of a possible LEGO Marvel set for 2022. It was supposed to be another take on the Hulkbuster, the mecha-sized add-on to Tony Stark’s Iron Man armor. This sweet machine was already LEGO-fied in 2018 as Hulkbuster: Ultron Edition (76105). Other rumors regarding this set, was that it was actually the alternate Hulkbuster from “Avengers: Infinity War”. Now, thanks to a leak from Indonesia, we finally know what this long-awaited LEGO Marvel set looks like.
Brickset tells us that a Certified LEGO Store in Indonesia just teased the box image for Infinity Saga Hulkbuster (76210). Apparently, it’s indeed a new take on the earlier Hulkbuster (76105). Both are based on the add-on armor’s appearance in “Avengers: Age of Ultron” (2015). At age 18+, this set is quite massive at 4,049 pieces and 52cm tall when assembled. Since Infinity Saga is LEGO Marvel’s counterpart to LEGO Star Wars UCS, expect some sweet detail and features. Light bricks for the big arc reactor and palm repulsors are just the beginning of it.
Like many huge mechanical LEGO sets, Infinity Saga Hulkbuster (76210) comes with a specs plate and a Tony Stark minifig. While the Indonesian LEGO Store is keeping mum on further product info, the latest rumors claim a $549.99 set price. The likeliest launch period would be the upcoming 2022 Holiday season, but we have plenty of time left for waiting.
