TOP 100 REVIEWERon 14 September 2013
This build is ok, but other than Iron Man and the Mandarin it has nothing to do with the movie "Ironman 3" as the box states.

You get 2 mini figures:

- Ironman - 2 faced - "Heartbreaker" armour printing - great printing torso (front and back) and legs (front only), and superb Ironman helmet. The front (gold) panel of the helmet flips up to show the "Tony Stark" face - this is, however, the same face(s) as you get in the "Avengers" builds. The suit comes with clear blue "thruster" bricks for the feet and hands.

- Mandarin - 2 faced - good torso printing (front and back) though the printing makes him look like he should be a baddy in the "Magnificent Seven" or a "Good, Bad and Ugly" type spaghetti western - very cowboy-ish. The beard is separate to the hair (as was such as Saruman in the Lego Lord of the Rings sets) and it covers most of the body printing.

The vehicle is not that impressive - it is supposed to be an armoured tank and yet it looks like a dune buggy with some rather nice orange tipped finger missiles. The build it quite easy and the buggy looks okay with its green highlighting, but it is hardly "ultimate".

To be honest when I see something labelled "Ultimate Showdown" I expect something more spectacular than this little set - at least something that had been in the movie.

This build has a RRP of 11.99 for 91 pieces meaning it's a not-too-bad 13 pence per piece, and you do get the very nice Iron Man "Heartbreaker" armour mini-figure.

As a Lego set in its own right this is an OK set. This is definitely a set for children and not collectors.
I wouldn't say that this was value for money as there are better similar sized sets from other Lego ranges that are far cheaper and offer more, but I think the main reason anyone would buy this is for the mini figures.
The Iron Man heartbreaker armour is a great figure and the Mandarin is also worth having, and as a collector that would be the only reason for getting this set.
My main problem with this set is that it just doesn't seem to have anything to do with the movie.
This vehicle doesn't feature anywhere in the film and Iron Man/Tony Stark doesn't have a showdown with the Mandarin.
This set really does not make any sense.

I got this when it was on offer a while back. I believe it was about £8 and if I'm honest, that was closer to the correct price.

It's a very small set with not a lot of playability. I'm not a child but I still don't think it offers all that much. If you can get it on offer it's definitely worth it because selling on the Iron Man figure (who is very cool) can sometimes bring you more than you actually paid for the entire set.

I got this in the sale and was the cheapest I have seen since. I mainly got this as you look around for an Iron Man figure and they are around £7.00+ and in this set you get Iron Man figure and the Mandarin and a vehicle. The Vehicle is quite sturdy and no bits have come off since making it. The Mandarin figure is good, but the Iron Man figure is best thing in the set, very detailed.

Okay so Lego is expensive. But when you buy this stuff at some sort of discount (this was 30% off) it makes spending 8 or 9 pounds a waste of money on other rubbish. My son loves this lego series especially as it ties in so well with the console games.

Bought as a Christmas gift for a lego fan aged 6 who I understand, really enjoys taking it apart and putting it back together again. He has other lego from the range, so it now making up games with them all.

A great little Lego set! Only bought it as I really wanted a Iron Man minifig, and this was the cheapest way of getting one! The whole set pleasantly surprised me, some nice little details and a solid build!

This is a good set, although the size of the box is a little disappointing for the money. That said, Grandson very pleased with it, especially as it has an Iron man character in the box!!

My grandson absolutely loved this. He's a big fan of Lego and Superheroes so had the best of both worlds! I was very pleased with the service received and the packaging was excellent.
