Priced to bust wallets at $550, the LEGO Avengers Hulkbuster set is the toy giant’s largest Marvel set to date, with an impressive 4,049 pieces. For reference, that’s $200 more but only 277 pieces more than the LEGO Daily Bugle set.

If you have a rampaging Hulk on your hands, you need Tony Stark to show up with his Hulkbuster suit and take care of business. But if Tony isn’t around, maybe this giant LEGO Hulkbuster statue will scare him away.
Veteran costume maker Thomas DePetrillo aka Extreme Costumes recently showed off his take on Iron Man’s Hulkbuster suit. The costume is 9’6″ tall and 6’6″ wide and has LED lights and eye lasers.
