Legohaulic’s “Brute” Strength

Iron Man 3 Hulkbuster Armor

LEGO isn’t waiting until the highly anticipated Iron Man 3 hits theaters on May 3rd to release it’s sets based on the property and the fans aren’t waiting to build either. Legohaulic built this version of what many are calling the “Hulkbuster” armour as a commission and the overall shape of the body is great. Seeing it in the trailer bust through the shipping containers in a full tilt dash reminded me much more of Marvel’s unstoppable Juggernaut. The only info attached to the original concept art where it appeared in the standard red and gold described it as “Brute” armour and that certainly fits. Its chunky design, hunched back and forearm hazard stripes (not included on the model, but that would have been impressive to pull off in purist form) indicate this guy was built less for busting monsters and more for Tony’s heavy lifting. I expect to see a great many suits pop up when the movie comes out and everyone has had a good look, but the early bird gets the worm.

With suits of armour in the trailer resembling the Stealth, Deep Space, Silver Centurion and other classic looks, which would you most like to see in LEGO form? Brick-built or minifig? I’m still down for Iron Patriot, but I’d take a Silver Centurion any way you build it as well…
