Sheng Yuan MK1 Iron Man

I purposely post about SY363A, SY363B and now about Iron Man MK1 at the same time to be more fair to most of you :). Some want me to review SY363 first and some want MK1. but still, it took me a while (almost 10 days) to come out with these review. ahaha. sorry!

I bought this set for RM30 ($7) from local shop. You can get one from aliexpress for $14.39 (with free shipping). wow, look at that price different. that's why i rather wait and buy these stuff from local shop. but the minus point here is that i have to wait longer when most of you guys might already got it. (^_^)".

Product code printed on the box: MK1. Hm, I can't tell if this set is Iron Man Mark 1 or actually Hulk Buster in grey but coincident with the set number "MK1". 






They use black box instead the usual brown box to store the content. Maybe they want to add premium/exclusive look to this set? Luckily the price is about the same as previous mecha set that i already reviewed. (^_^)".





Items in the box: Instructions booklet and lego parts in 9 sealed bags.



A few work in progress photos:





Assembled set: MK 1 (with Tony Stark figure inside) and  Iron Patriot minifigure.



Front, side and rear view of the mecha:




Same design with the standard Hulk Buster Iron Man. Pop up the Hulk Buster face and open up the front chest to fit Tony Stark figure inside.




They use ball-joint as the connector hence the flexible movement.



A few badass look of the assembled set:




Size comparison with the standard Hulk Buster Iron Man from LEGO #76031. Pardon me for using LELE's Hulkbuster in this comparison.





Close up pics of some interesting parts:






Iron Patriot and Tony Stark minifigure:




IMHO, this is definitely MK1 Iron Man. just look at that transparent orange part as flame sticking out his right hand and those hose and black spikey stuff at the back of his leg. Just because they use the the same face design with LEGO Hulkbuster makes me a little confused by this character. I wonder how this guy should look if SY create special part for the head to make it look exactly like this guy:

The only printed parts for this MK1 is the face and it's superb! Prints on the torso of the minifigures look great too.. but not Tony Stark's face (^_^)". My kids don't play much with this MK1 so it's still in one piece, no loose part either :).

[update on March 9th, 2016]
Guys.. guess what. there's another version of this MK1. with decals! ahaha. thanks to one of my friends (who do not want to be named aha :)) for these pictures:

Even the pictures on the box is different from mine... so it's definitely an upgrade.








Anyway, my search on aliexpress show image of this set without decals.. so how do we get this upgraded MK1? Aliexpress

  1. Were the joints a bit loose? A couple of joints I had were a bit loose. The leg to hip parts. Had to replace the connector to get it to be more steady though.

    Which do you prefer, this or the original Hulkbuster?

    1. owh. mine still tight. but its no surprise if they become loose after a few pose. expected from these china brand (^_^)". have no choice but to replace those crucial parts with original Lego to make it more durable

  2. Wow, does this shop you buy at has any profit? They sell boxed stuff so cheap it hurts to see (as aliexpress always "no box" buyer).

    Tony's face printing is such a fail.

    1. Hi @Batsy Bats. another source for me to get em cheaper is from wholesale shop but it is quite far from my house and there's minimum order quantity to be met (^_^)".

      if they offer me these stuff without box for a lower price, I did not hesitate to accept the offer. eheh

  4. Wow, boss this is like christmas... 3 new reviews in one go!!!! thank you so much. love it!!! BTW I think you should modify this to the iron monger (the villain of the first ironman movie). Anyway, wishing you a very happy happy new year.

    1. Hi @Anonymous. at first I was not sure whether to label this as a mecha MK1 or iron monger. but seeing Tony Stark inside the cockpit and vulnerable parts on the rear of the mecha, I think it's more suitable as MK1, is not it? oh this guy also has flame thrower. hmm

      Delete
    2. You are right that this model is based off the MK1 design. However, given the size (that is way way too big to be MK1)and the color, I thought it suits the monger better however u need to MOD it (ie. putting a gatling gun on it etc)... anyway just ignore me (not intended to demand anything;just saying....).... still love what you do here!!!

  5. My Tony Stark print turned out to be pretty good actually. Did not have the face problem.

    1. Yup, mine too. Although i do agree it'd be great if they change the head, or at least the face to more MK1. But still a great figure

    2. ah you guys are all very lucky :)....

      Fortunately I've had some of the same head from another set so i could switch them ahaha

    1. This versión come with the extra pieces with decals

      Delete
    2. @Anonymous. . I think all of the latest batch will come with decals. I might be wrong.. maybe you could directly ask the seller. in aliexpress, they use the same old image for newer batch with decals.
