I have Darth Vader and Emperor minifigs from a McDonald's set a while back.

Don't tell anyone.

Here is my Avengers Age of Ultron fig collection so far.  I am only lacking the Black Widow, Vision, and Iron legion minifigs to complete the set.  I don't need to, but I am probably going to pick up the final 2 sets as well, because I have 4 of the 6.  BTW, Hulkbuster has got to be the coolest damn thing I have seen in a long time!

Hulkbuster looks about the scale I expect my buildable figure Jango to be. Still not had a chance to do much aside from open the box...

It's a good size, but it's not scaled to the minifigs correctly, because in the movie Hulkbuster and Hulk are the same size, as you can see in my photo they aren't in the Lego version.  Still, Iron Man fits inside it and it's still awesome!

My latest is the Chima Pheonix. http://shop.lego.com/en-US/Flinx-s-Ultimate-Phoenix-70221

I don't care for the birdish minifigs, but the pheonix is very pretty. This one is not getting broken down for parts, but will probably make a few appearances in RPG sessions. Now I need to find a good dragon to go with.

finally had a chance to put him together, and today I needed the distraction, however short lived it was...

This should give you a pretty good idea of scale vs traditional minifigs (generic mando)

That's awesome!  I think it's a tad bigger than Hulkbuster.

This lasted a grand total of 10 minutes before being disassembled and turned into a gun and a rocket. I need to have serious talk with that boy.

I should stop reading this thread. I was in the Dollar Store a few days ago and came across these generic non Lego sets.

they had those in our Primark store around Christmas a few years back... I resisted and now almost feel like I shouldn't have.

Also those Call of Duty Mega Bloks sets  :ahhh :ahhh

I hear you on the Call of Duty sets. Lucky for me, I got out of that after buying the complete series 1 sets, and gave them all to a neighbourhood kid that didn't have much.

Yea, I can sometimes be found drooling over the Halo megablocks sets.  I really wish Halo would have been released as a Lego set, I'm sure they would have been awesome.  Big time Halo fan here!!!

Alright, I'm super smurfing mad.

I have only been waiting like 30 years for a Lego TARDIS. An official set gets released next week. And as part of the 'Dimensions' video game. For $30 SMURFING bucks!

Smurf that! As neat as I think it is, I'm not dropping $30 on a TARDIS, Dr. Who minifig, and K9.

 :rant:

Ah,but which Doctor?
