|Tickle! Tickle! Tickle!|
"Veronica" is Marvel's nod towards how Elizabeth "Betty" Ross is able to bring down the enraged gamma-irradiated beast just be standing there and being a calm presence (First seen in the 2003 "Hulk" film with Eric Bana as the Hulk and Jennifer Connelly as Betty Ross).
The ability to calm down the Hulk in such a way was lost on some people who were surprised that the Black Widow was able to repeat the process - which the Avengers had dubbed as a "lullaby" They either have not seen the Hulk movies prior to the Avengers, or simply object to the Hulk/Black Widow love story.
Personally Black Widow's explanation as to why she's in love with Banner makes sense to us: all her friends are fighters, and so she falls for the one guy who doesn't want to fight because he would win.
Anyway this Heroes Assemble "Super Friends" Hulkbuster set is a rip off of the LEGO Super Heroes The Hulk Buster Smash - 76031- which retails for US$ 49.95 ( Roughly PhP 2,547.50 plus shipping). Both sets include:
- A 5" tall Hulkbuster armored suit
- Iron Man
- The Scarlet Witch
- Ultron - who we actually completely forgot about and did not shoot.
- A 2" tall Hulk
- A "Hulk" prison with a jump/levitation platform at the back.

- FIRST: The price. PhP 475 (Less than US$10) in the black market here in the Philippines gave us this beautiful playset a few years ago.
- SECOND: The pieces. The Heroes Assemble Action figures are really quite well made, and it really is difficult to tell that they aren't genuine Lego pieces. Here are the main protagonists:
- The Incredible Hulk: As mentioned he stands 2" tall and comes with limited articulation, but he can still smash:
|Puny Metal Man!|
- The Hulk can be placed in a "trap" (Yeah that won't hold him) which we believe is a nod to the cage that Iron Man tried to contain the Hulk in before he suited up in Veronica.
|This will seriously NOT hold the Hulk|
- The Scarlet Witch: Wanda comes armed with a pare of energy power manifestations:
|What can I cut with these|
- Iron Man. Tony Stark comes with "Jets" and "Repulsor glows" His helmet can be opened and removed:
- THIRD: Veronica. Since we know that Iron Man can't beat the Hulk on his own, here's the Hulkbuster!
- The Hulkbuster is true to movie form: A suit of armor for a guy in a suit of armor:
|This is my Hulkbuster|
- Place Tony inside the Armor, and close it up:
|How did I get up here?|
- The Hulkbuster may seem a bit scrawny at the waist, but standing at 5" tall, he's quite an intimidating figure. Check out the detailing that went into him.
- The jets at his back can be re positioned. Note the cushy tushy armor :)
- Articulation? It's EXCELLENT!!! Veronica comes armed with a pair of push "bolts" but his uni-beam, repulsors and jets are clearly marked with "Energy" parts.
- Add the now "Puny" Hulk
