Rumoured LEGO Marvel 76215 Hulkbuster said to include nearly 3,000 pieces

Fresh details on this year’s rumoured LEGO Marvel 76215 Hulkbuster suggest the mech will more than double the piece count (and price) of its predecessor.

2018’s 76105 The Hulkbuster: Ultron Edition weighed in at 1,363 pieces for £119.99 / $119.99 / €129.99 at retail, and delivered the biggest version of Iron Man’s mega-suit we’ve seen in bricks to date. That sounds like it’s all about to change, however, as the latest details on the rumoured follow-up point to an even bigger and more impressive Hulkbuster coming this year.

Initial reports of the next Marvel direct-to-consumer set indicated it would include approximately 2,500 pieces for $299.99. But according to Instagram user 1414falconfan (via Promobricks), the final part count will actually come in at 2,961 – or more than double the pieces of the 2018 version. And it will sport the price tag to match, reportedly retailing for $349.99.

Whether the set was once genuinely planned to launch at $299.99 and has now fallen victim to the imminent price increases is unknown, and will likely never be confirmed, but it’s not out of the question – if this set exists at all, of course. For now, it’s still only a rumour, and should be treated as such until we get any official word from the LEGO Group.

76215 Hulkbuster is slated to arrive in October, which would see it land on shelves alongside the already-revealed 21336 The Office, 71411 The Mighty Bowser and the first wave of Avatar sets. If it really is that close to launch, we may not have to wait too much longer to get our first glimpse of this supposedly mammoth mech.

In the meantime, there’s still 76218 Sanctum Sanctorum to look forward to, which will be available to buy from August 1.

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. You can follow me on Twitter at @brfa_chris.
