"When I saw this set I had no qualms about getting it. I love the game characters & both are easy favorites. DVa's mecha is fairly well done & detailed. My only real qualm with it is the back where the design, quite literally, is a bit too flat. Still it a very cool & fun to build design.
Reinhardt I'm conflicted about. Don't misunderstand, it is also pretty cool but the legs simply kill the overall look. I can live with Lego's stiff leg design choice for their huge kits since weigh is a consideration but Reinhardt is small & having no joints or at least a convincing appearance (as in DVa's design) makes for one stiff & shorter than it should be mecha.
That said the lego figures in this set are spot on, DVa in particular. Great choice for the head expressions, quality print, really well done."
"Other reviews have covered in detail how good this set is. It has great presence due to its size and many great play features. The ship build is pretty fun with many custom pieces that aren't common in most sets. The combination feature is pretty cool and brought memories of some of the older space sets.
Most of the figures are truly well made and represent their video counterparts accurately.
Except Mercy. The figure's head is printed in exactly the same disappointing manner as Misako from the Ninjago Movie sets. Instead of opting for a thicker primer, Lego seems to have skimped during the printing process, yet again, resulting in a grayish face. It's color is uneven and mine even sports remains of paint bubbles around the nose area. Feel free to take a look at the included picture.
As a Lego & Overwatch fan I would have forgiven Lego had they sacrificed the black portion of the headpiece for a properly printed face.
In fact, Lego, how about a re-printing her head? I would even pay for it, even though it really is a bad quality decision.
Now, I realize this is a lot of strong nitpicking for one figure in a fairly big set. That said, we now have Lego Overwatch because of how well designed and polished their game characters are. Besides being good play sets, the one thing that will sell these sets are the figures because fans of the game will want them. I know I do... er, for my kids. ;)
So finding out one of the fan favorites is poorly represented is sorely disappointing."
"I was looking for this set since the fan submitted Lego Ideas kit was not approved by Lego. We all knew they had something in the plans and this is it.
Let me first start by saying this is a very enjoyable build. The platform, extras, and interchangeable arm are a brilliant idea, adding context and detail. The Hulkbuster armor itself has enough bulk and detail to make any fan happy. I wish the knees would bend, but I guess the designers opted for stability and more detail instead of actual knees. Can't really blame them.
Up to that point I was back to being a little boy, excitedly building the figure.
But I cannot express enough disappointment at the choice of LED light to represent the ARC reactor. Instead of the bright bluish white, as it was in the movies and on the Lego box kit, Lego opted for a (very much cheaper) yellowish/orange LED and has you place a blue translucent block in front of it. My guess to try and mask the color.
It does not work. It is an horrible choice and would ruin the set if it wasn't such a cool build. For that reason I am knocking one star out of what should be a perfect 5 star kit imo.
If you don't mind such details, by all means go for it. It is and looks pretty awesome.
But I can't help but wish that Lego would re-issue the LED light to every owner. It is that bad. Realistically, I will be looking for a replacement and will refrain from pre-ordering sets like this until they are reviewed."

Someone replaced the Arc reaction with a flashlight,Tony!
"Brick Headz models fit some characters better than others. In this case, the design for Cyborg fits perfectly. Easily one of my favorites, in particular because Lego choose to also portray Cyborg's favorite go-to weapon in the design. It sits right next to Bats, Flash, & Wonder Woman."
