Fan designer creates custom LEGO Marvel Hulkbuster BrickHeadz model

A talented fan designer has taken to social media to showcase his very own custom LEGO Marvel Hulkbuster BrickHeadz suit of armour.

One of the many criticisms levelled at last year’s 76210 Hulkbuster set was the fact that the scale and proportions of the build just weren’t accurate enough. This was primarily due to the fact that the 4,049-piece set was designed to accommodate 76206 Iron Man Figure, with the secondary model slotting into the larger version of the armour.

Whilst some Marvel fans lamented the LEGO Group’s decision to sacrifice accuracy for functionality, others have taken up the challenge of customising the set to suit their own requirements. One such fan designer has taken this idea even further and created his very own custom LEGO Hulkbuster BrickHeadz model, which is not only well-proportioned but also allows for the now-retired 41590 Iron Man BrickHeadz to be neatly placed inside.

Instagram user chubbybots‘ build features moveable arms and legs, fully-poseable knees and neck rotation, plus an opening cockpit to accommodate the small BrickHeadz Avenger inside. The overall result is extremely satisfying and certainly offers a good compromise of form and functionality.
