Lego 76125 – The Ironman Hall of Armour is set in the Avengers Endgame collection and has 524 Pieces and 6 Mini figures, including 4 different Ironman armours. It focuses on the Lab and invading Outriders and has Tony Stark himself in it.
I’ll be honest, this wasn’t on the cards to be done yet but its a set I’ve wanted for a while, and when I got it, I wanted to build it straight away, as did Tigger. Not only because we are big Marvel fans, especially the films, but Iron man is one of the favourites, probably mine. Infinity War was one of my favourite films, though I liked Endgame I loved infinity war. I have quite a few versions of Tony and Ironman, including the big Hulkbuster so this was set obviously was a purchase for us, and with this set, it looked fairly easy so Tigger took the lead.
Bag 1 charges in with the bulk of the appeal of the set, It has an Iron man MKL which is great with its detailed printed Armour, as it is his latest one, and double head with helmet or hair combination, the Double face has a blue screen much like the Infinity war set done the year previous. Along with him is the first Outrider, these are now very common, much like Stormtroopers or Orcs, which is handy for many collectors or Set builders that want several of one type for a battle, as the films show hundreds of these then having more is never an issue.
The rest of the bag then focuses on the central Pad that would house an Iron man Armour in fixing/building mode, much like the films the older ones would be taken on with the robotic arms, unlike his new Nano versions. There is also the first three of the Armour Bays that hold the suits, these all have clear blue plastic windows to show a futuristic view of the lab, along with stickers of the different Armour suits including MarkV and Mark XXV, and the house protocol screen. Lastly is Dum-E and two fires, this is a great nod to the past as he has been done for many years, holding a fire extinguisher is a really nice touch to the past as he put out fires.
Bag 2 has more of these bays but unfortunately no more stickers for the screens, however randomly there are 3 white boxes with equipment dotted in these placements, one with a spanner, stud shooter and workbench type thing. they look a little odd and out of place, both the colour being white and located in these bays, I wonder why they weren’t on a separate place to the side. A satellite dish sits on top, again I’m not sure why but at least this and the other equipment can be moved anywhere, should you need to. The bag also has 2 more Iron man Armours suits, the Mark 1 is a great return and fantastic to be in here, I’m so glad it is as I didn’t own it, its great, I would have prefered more clunky feel but I’m being fussy as it really is good, the Mark V version used from Iron man 2, which means all three films are represented, looks great as well, another different design of course and metal trim much like the film.
Bag 3 adds yet more bays but also a blender stand, and equipment stand for Tony’s hair when he’s wearing the suit, the helmet could sit on it as well, though it’s not as sturdy. Tonys office is made with 4 screens circling around a desk, chair, and coffee cup, much like the bays that also circle round the platform in the middle. The Iron man Armour in this bag is MK XL1 or Bones armour, which is in Iron man 3, it’s very different in colours t the rest with the black and then gold bones like pattern, all over.
Bag 4 and separate book for some random reason, has the second Outrider, but more importantly the Iron man Mark XXXVIII or known as Igor which was designed for heavy lifting etc… much like the hulk buster the iron man suited Stark fits in the front of it, its much bigger than the other versions and is blue. It uses some technic pieces, ball joints etc.. to add to its size and play value, as its completely moveable through Ironman doesn’t quite fit in it properly.
Overall this set will divide people, the choice of Iron man Armour suits is great, the big Mk XXXVIII isn’t fantastic, for me they seem to struggle to get this larger mech style builds any good, but it’s still good to see it in the set. I’m fine for more Outriders as I mentioned earlier some people will want as many as they can. BUT this set has some drawbacks, its RRP is £54.99 which is a little pricey for the piece count and mini-figure selection, the build is ultimately the same, the bays are made almost exact every time with the same style mini-figures and the same equipment, so not exactly the most enthralling of builds. The Bays are a nice idea as many people have bought more pieces to create more bays for there display, and that’s part of the problem of the set, it’s just a big display for Iron man, so the price is pricey.
What’s annoying for me is there aren’t enough stickers for the bays, I appreciate they couldn’t do every Ironman in the films for stickers, but at least one for each in this set lol. Lastly, this set is from Endgame? this has no reference to the film and vice versa, ts more of an Iron man collection through the films, I’ve had issues with the Avengers set and this for me is disappointing, I think it will split people, get it cheap enough, you like Iron Man? Do you like a display? then fantastic! if not this is not a set I would recommend.
