  1. High five! Thanks mate! Thanks! Hmm. 76039. Anthony is so exclusive and the wings are too special to be missed!
  2. Haha maybe my definition of playability is a little bit different. To me something like a mechanism equals to my definition of playability. Yes I had very much fun building them too! FYI, I swoosh Anthony around with his large wings all the time. Haha
  3. Thanks for the kind words! Can't wait for the movie too! This is the first time I used black background for the review, turns out quite okay and I will try new colored background in my next ones. Hopefully it adds some different feeling in the review. Thanks! Glad you liked it! Yeah I do love Anthony with those large wings. Thanks! It's not a spaceship but more of some arctic vehicle. Maybe they didn't copy the city helicopter to make it similar to the ones in the movie? But I do agree with you that I want leg printings..
  4. 'Hold on, you gave her wings?!''And blasters.''So I take it you didn’t have that tech available for me.''No, I did.' No blasters or wings for you poor Scott.. So this movie is about the story of antman and the wasp after Captain America: Civil War right before Infinity War. So I suppose we will know why antman is absent when Thanos invaded with is 50% discount ideology. I really love these 'one set to collect them all' LEGO sets. They really make you feel complete. Let's go into the sets. Introduction Remember the previous set of Antman when the first movie was out? I missed that set and didn't buy it. Now there are some increase in the value, but I still manage to get the set from a local reseller. So here I am, having two Antman LEGO sets and a review combo. Hope you like it! Overview Name: 76039 Ant-man Final BattleYear: 2015Pieces: 183Minifigures: 3Price: £19.99 / $19.99 / 24.99€ Name: 76109 Quantum Realm ExplorersYear: 2018Pieces: 200Minifigures: 3Price: £19.99 / $19.99 / 24.99€ The Box The box arts are incredibly amazing for both sets. The previous battle is on a coffee table and the latest battle looks more like a small lab in the Quantum Realm. I'm pleased that the super jumper is no more. The play features are quite little in both of the sets but I'm not complaining as their appearances are amazing. The antman designs are different as you can see from the actual sized photos here. The Content For 76039, we got two numbered bags, one sticker sheet, one instruction booklet, one comic book and two transparent printed wings, I love these exclusive wings! Booklet one, two, parts list 1, parts list 2 and five. Bag one, two and extra parts. 76109 also came with the same content but we don't have the comic book any more. Is it because it is not appreciated? Booklet one, two, three, four and parts list. Sticker sheet. Bag one, two and extra parts. These are the special parts in bag one. I love the printed round tile that looks like a watch battery. The ski base is quite a large part which I prefer it to be several small parts so that it can be more useful in MOCs. I loved this one so much! The printed rounded trans clear windows, wind pipes and the roller skate shoes! The wings for the wasp is nice too but I kinda hoped she got a special new mold. The Build Anthony! This giant flying ant is the main attraction of this set and you won't get it anywhere else. It was so well designed with the wings! This is the top side view after you assembled the parts. The colors used are very nice too. The wings can spread very long and it looks like taking off now. Side view. Here you can appreciate the head, thorax and abdomen of an insect. When he is 'flying'. There are actually two attachment under the thorax to make him fly. Shelob is here! You can actually put a minifig to ride him. The flexibility of the head makes him look like he got his own expression when posed at the right angle. I love this Anthony so much! This is the final build of the set with the up sized 1x1 red brick and 1x2 yellow plate. The stickers are so minimal in this set made me wonder why not just print the LEGO words on the tiles? Run Yellow Jacket! Moving on to 76109, the build only consist of this Quantum Realm Explorer. I love the spherical dock design with round and transparent parts. It looks like arctic explorer but much cooler and more advanced looking. The back of the explorer is surprisingly detailed. I do love the brilliant use of the barrels as the exhaust pipes. The wings of the explorer are attached via ball joints on both sides which makes them stretchable like this. It does feels like Anthony in the previous set to me. The cockpit can only fit one minifig at a time. Top view of the explorer. The roller skate shoes really look cute here as the details of the ship! The completed build. *The trans stand that make wasp fly is not included in the set. The Minifigures The Yellow Jacket, Ant man and Hank Pym in his old motorcycle suit. Look at the amount of details printed on the torsos and legs! If you love antman and minifigures, you wouldn't want to miss this gorgeous set! Their helmets are very nicely molded and The trans red and trans yellow part that incorporated into the helmet showing their expressions really super awesome! The back of their torso are equally detailed. You can even see the part that Ant man broke inside the Yellow jacket by shrinking between atoms. Helmets removed and you can see Darren Cross, Scott Lang and Hank Pym (Saruman?). OMG I really love the helmets. Darren only have one face while Scott is added with puzzled expression and Hank with angry face. Let me present to you. THE YELLOW JACKET! Moving on to 76109. A lot of complains goes to the wasp's helmet. Including me. WHY not use the Ant man's helmet with trans yellow visors? Now she looks ugly. Or at least I thought of this before I got my hands on her. The recycled use of the invincible iron man's helmet is really a lazy move but the printings on it does make her looks nicer. You gave her wings!? The trans blue wings are nice but also a repeated use of parts. Only her torso prints made her looks nice here as a minifigure. Leg prints are also missing for her and the Ghost. Alright enough with the complains for the Wasp. New Ant Man suit! Now he has a blaster and superb torso and leg printings. The Ghost looks nice too with two trans blue blasters. The trophy is quite a mystery to be added to this set. I think we will know after the movie. With all the complains raised for the Wasp, she is quite nice and acceptable after I acquired my copy of the set. The back of their torso is very nicely printed and you can recognize ant man here is actually similar to the ant man in the trailer. All three of them have dual facial expressions. Finally we get a scared face of Scott here. The Ghost we got a Valkyrie face that will look better with the hood on. Helmet off. Hope does have facial expressions under the helmet. Scott is happier than the previous version and for the Ghost, her helmet is printed on the head and it looks quite nice. Haha, here it looks like Scott is surprised to notice that the Ghost looks really similar to Valkyrie in Thor Ragnarok! I took Hope's hair from the other city set and it looks nice on her like that. Comparison of new and old ant man. Is he gaining weight that the belt is curved at the new suit? The back is also different and the new one looks lighter without so much clunky metals. The evolution of ant man suits and I love all of them! Ant man family! So you get what I mean of the helmet is recycled but the printings on it saves the day? Conclusion Both sets are so nice and I can't find a reason not to have them in my collection. Miss them, you will surely regret as a Marvel Ant man fan! Review Summary Playability: 6/10 - Nothing much to play with actually. Design / Building Experience: 10/10 - The design is very nice and I really love Anthony and the explorer. Minifigures: 9/10 - Great minifigures! All the printings and the details are marvelous! A little bit disappointed for the wasp but it's ok, she does look cute here. Overall: 9/10 - These two sets are must buy for ant man fans. The sets are equally worthy with the minifigures in it. I love them so much! Hope you enjoy the review, do share your thoughts in the comments!
  5. Great review! This set is massive! Now you made me wana buy it.

    REVIEW: 75933 T.Rex Transport

    Nice review as always. I wonder how many LEGO Dinosaurs are there?
  7. And let's not forget the stone @HawkLord.. Thanks mate! Thanks @Venefic! My next review is in progress. Stay tuned! I do agree with the disappointment of getting the same Banner. (That was dirt in his shirt of my copy. I wonder why cause it was already there after I took out from the seal.) Falcon's wing is definitely great but it can be better if they are printed parts. I still haven't get my other infinity war sets.. Sob :( Nailed it!
  8. Thanks for the reply. Yes, Mark II is bulkier and nicer than the first version. Here is another picture of him intimidating the Hulk!
  9. 'The end is near.' Are you excited to see Thanos destroy half the universe this April? I am! So let's snap our fingers and start this new combo review of mine. Six sets to collect is quite heavy to my pocket so I start with this much sought after set, plus a combo with the previous Hulkbuster set as a comparison. Is it too much to hope for a support set (UCS Hulkbuster) from LEGO for me to review? Hmm... 'I hope they remember you' Introduction Tony keeps making new suits for himself and Hulkbusters with Banner to contain Hulk that lose control. Here we got Hulkbuster Mark I from Age of Ultron and Mark II from Infinity War LEGO sets. The main build of these two sets are the Hulkbusters itself and a small build of the partial Hulk cage and a ball shooter piloted by Proxima midnight and outriders. Let's start. Oh, spoiler alert, the soul stone is here! Overview Name: 76031 The Hulk Buster SmashYear: 2015Pieces: 248Minifigures: 4Price: £29.99 / $29.99 / 34.99€ Name: 76104 The Hulkbuster Smash-UpYear: 2018Pieces: 375Minifigures: 4Price: £29.99 / $29.99 / 34.99€ The Box The front of the boxes featured the Hulkbusters in action and the minifigures included. The size of both sets are the same but the 2018 version is with 375 pieces at the same price. No wonder it had become a hard to find item in my place. At the back of the box you can see Bruce jumped out of the Hulkbuster and grab the soul stone. I thought he is supposed to Hulk out? The outrider looks scared and ran away, quite weird of what's happening here. The old box features scarlet witch and ultron in the battle but in the movie, the fight is only focused on Hulk and the huge iron man. So is it telling us that the new box art is not that accurate to the movie? I guess we'll know this 25th of April. Proxima Midnight and Iron Man Mark 43 in actual size. I think the super jumper (minifig leg destroyer) is not being included anymore. The Content The comic book is very nicely printed and I'm glad that sticker sheet is so small. Hulk is still in the plastic and three numbered bags. In 76104 we get four numbered bags with a sticker sheet. bag one, bag two, bag three, and bag four. We get four infinity stones in bag one still attached to the sprue. The Build These are the small builds in the sets. I didn't pay much attention to them as I'm very excited to proceed to the Hulkbusters! The turret shoots a ball by pressing the serrated arm. The center of the arm is flexible enabled it to squeeze out the ball. For 76031, the cage for the Hulk is built with a trans clear bar to make scarlet witch fly above the Hulk. There is a compartment storing the soul stone at the back of the turret. So the stone is with the outrider all these times? How confusing! Here you go. I love the trans orange new part for the infinity stones. Can't wait to get Thanos and the gauntlet along with all the stones! The Minifigures Iron Man Mark 43. He is with a round chest piece and the gold red prints. The torso is very detailed as usual and Tony's face is similar to most of other LEGO iron mans. A comparison with a later version of iron man in civil war. Mark 46. Tony added blue lights all over the torso and covered part of the chest circle. The helmet is pretty much the same. Blue lights at the back too. You can check all previous versions of iron man here. Scarlet Witch. This is a younger version of her that serves Ultron to avenge her parents. I like the dark red jacket here but why her power is blue instead of pink? The civil war Wanda has longer hair, a skirt and a more matured look. The faces and red eyes are the same, but the torso changed. But where did the leg printings go? Hulk! Now you are outnumbered. We have two Hulkbusters. This is the angrier version of Hulk affected by Wanda's magic. Seriously, what did she showed Banner made him so furious? Compared to previous versions, this one actually have a line at the collar bone area indicating that the head is shaped by new mold just to make his hair like this. But it is not separable from the torso. The skin tone is similar to the Ragnarok version. Only the pants changed color after two years in Sakaar. Pollution maybe? Ultron Prime. This is the Ultron which amputated Klaue's left hand. I like the overall printings on his head and torso and legs. The red lights also looked glowing like fluid flowing through his body. Bruce Banner. We have another Banner in human form after Ragnarok. All things similar but there are some dirt on his shirt in my copy. Can anyone clarify? Or is it a minute difference that makes him exclusive to this set? Falcon. He is another highlight in this set who had a new brick-built wings. They are attached to him with the trans clear 1x2 rounded edge plate. Underneath the plate the printings also resembles a closed wing as a backpack. The brick built wings are actually quite heavy for him as a minifigure, but the trans red cone fire gave quite a good support for him. The wings are awesome as it is flexible in horizontal way! It can now folded in front of him to block bullets. Thanos does give the Avengers some level of stress making Falcon's suit darker than the civil war version. He is in Wakanda in the trailer with Cap, does that means that the wings got vibranium upgrades too? No more carbon fibre? I think the brick built wings are so much nicer than the previous one. Proxima Midnight. One of the Black Order of Thanos. She gets a bright blue hair treatment in LEGO form and a sweet smiley face. However, you won't like when she is angry and holding her spear. Pearl gold arm and the white colored arm is very nicely matched with the armor printed torso. Do you think the grandmaster would show up in Infinity War? Hmm..His melt stick would be a great weapon against the mad titan, no? Thanos's new minions, outriders. He has the other four arm attached to this new part that attached to him like a backpack. I love the black and gold color combination here. He does look like spider from the side. The back also printed very well underneath the four armed backpack. Bad guys army. The head does look like an eye, right? Go get the Avengers! The Highlights of these two sets. Are you ready for some Hulkbusting? Let's start with the most exclusive part in the set. The dome shaped head with gold color printings. Mark II have more lines and the eyes looks angrier than the previous version. Side by side. Wow, just wow. Both are very fine build of the robot but I prefer the Infinity War version as it looks bulkier and detailed compared to the skinnier version. Mark II also looks 'complete' with the stickers applied. Let's open up. The first version is with a brown 2x4 tile inside, looks primitive. Mark II looks more technologically advanced as it got a interconnected gear inside the pilot's seat. Spoiler alert. It's a bit late for this spoiler though. Now everybody knows Banner is the one piloting the latest version of hulkbuster. I like the fit of a minifigure inside the space. Just nice rather than spacious in the first version. Sideways. Mark I have a straighter posture. Mark II kind of lean forward but both are very stable. I really love the trans blue knob that turns his right arm 360 degrees creating a hurling action. It can be locked just by clutching in the knob. Mark I is using the bionicle shoulder pad while Mark II has a shinier buildable figure era shoulder pads. The back looks nice too as the antistuds are quite covered up. Sitting position. Mark I has a better articulation at the hip area enables him to sit more properly than Mark II. Mark II kind of lack one angle at the hip area. Some modifications are needed to help him sit. Comparison of LEGO buildable figures. Mark II is taller than Mark I and quite similar height with Giant man. Sadly I don't have the UCS version to compare here. Tree beard and K2SO are way taller than them. The sole of their foot is quite wide enabled them to stand with one leg and dance off! Conclusion Both sets are so nice and I can't find a reason not to have them in my collection. The Hulkbusters are so nicely built and they looked great standing next to each other. Review Summary Playability: 9/10 - They are very nice to play with especially the posability of both Hulkbusters. Design / Building Experience: 8/10 - The design is very nice but not really movie accurate. They look quite different from the movie and still very skinny even for Mark II. Minifigures: 9/10 - Great minifigures! All the printings and the details are marvelous! Except for Proxima who looks a little bit cartoonish. Overall: 9/10 - These two sets are must buy for hulkbuster fans like me. They are really nice to pose and play and photograph with! They do make me kind of ignored the existence of the minifigures in the sets. Haha. Hope you enjoy the review, do share your thoughts in the comments! Superhero Landing!

    This set is so cool. Let's hope it glows in the dark!
  11. Awesome! How was it? Rubberly tight. The clutch power is ok, not loose. That was indeed a great technique I found in the internet. So useful!
  12. Great review @WhiteFang! Love the dragon guy and the cake and race cars can become a stand alone part! So nice!
  13. Thanks! I am hoping I can get enough support for making the Six Infinity Wars Sets Review. Oh ya, I forgot the UCS Hulkbuster, but I still haven't got it..
