I’m calling in Veronica… Avengers Age of Ultron may not top the Avengers movies in terms of fan favorites, but it did introduce one of the best Iron Man armors of them all – the Mark XLIV aka the Hulkbuster. It’s presence and the fight with Hulk were one of the best MCU moments for me. As such, I’ve grabbed versions of it as much as I could over the years. Today marks an official upgrade on my shelf with the arrival of threezero’s DLX Hulkbuster. It’s part of their DLX line of figures, which take their awesome detail, paint and tech from the larger pieces and shrink it down to about 1/12 scale. It pairs well with their standard XLIII figure (see our gallery here), which actually fits inside this one! This is due to ship in Q1 2022 – and threezero was kind enough to send through a copy a bit early for us to check out. Read on for some additional thoughts and over 80 HD images!

ThreeZero have been expanding their line up of high end collectibles figures over the last several years. They started primarily with 1/6th scale figures now called Figzero, then moved into high end Transformers replicas from the movies, now called Premium Scale. They’ve since created the DLX line for Transformers, which spawned ROBO-DOU, both smaller yet high end robotic themes in the 8-16 inch range. ThreeZeroX is super premium crossover re-imaginings. They even dipped into 1:12 scale clothed figures for a bit with Figzero S.
Now they are bringing that sweet spot of the DLX and ROBO-DOU line into a new segment – Marvel DLX. These are advertised as 1:12 scale figures with die-cast, high end paint, lights, and massive articulation. A serious figure at a smaller scale. The first up is Iron Man in his Mark XLIII (43) armor from Avengers age of Ultron. And pretty soon after the announcement – yes, they are also doing an in-scale Hulkbuster.
ThreeZero was kind enough to send through a copy to check out a bit early. We’ve run it for a set of pics, basic and fancy, after the break. These are currently open again for a second round of pre-orders, so if you dig it get those orders in. You can grab him at the ThreeZero Store or your preferred ThreeZero stockist. The second batch is due to ship in Q1 2022.
