Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 30
Rated 5 out of 5 by Docsteel Picture doesn't do it justice -
For $12.99 USD this set is a steal, as the unique "Heart-breaker" armor variant for Iron-Man comes with very good printing, and the cool figure of the Mandarin (despite the overdone beard) alone make it worth the price of admission. The picture of the vehicle might give one pause as it looks rather odd and frankly a little weird in it, but once assembled it is much cooler to see in person and suddenly comes alive with the figures and actually makes one look forward to whatever actually shows up in the movie that it represents. Considering the Mandarin and Iron-Man variants, plus a rather cool vehicle with some very useful parts for fans, this set is definitely one to pick up!

Rated 3 out of 5 by AnakinSkywalker46 Mandarin vs Iron Man
This pains me to say this but I did not like this set very much. I am a Mandarin fan and appreciate his figure in this set. Iron Man is just average( I now have 6 Iron Man figures! ). The picture on the box makes the set look simple and small. The vehicle on the box should be brandishing its menacing flame thrower and not just sitting there like a duck! Overall teh set is almost below average, it is a small set meant for collectors. Sadly, the price almost turned me away(At least Iron Man should have a small vehicle or something). I am looking forward to the next wave of sets!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Alecthesugarfreebaker Awesome minifigs, weird vehicle
This set is very interesting. The golf cart (or whatever it's called) is obviously not highlight of this set. It's the awesome minifigures, the heartbreaker armor is simply awesome. That and the mark 42 armor are the best. The mandarin is a pretty good minifig, but to make it more accurate they should have made his hair the ponytail hair. Also, this scene never happened in the movie, and they never fought.
this version of the mandarin that is exclusive to this set
overall, its a decent set. Get it for the minifigs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by brickprince1999 Good, but not ultimate!
this set is overall cheap and is a great addition to the iron man 3 collection but theres one problem which is "the ultimate showdown". This set is not ultimate but its nice. So the ultimate should have been cut out . Anyway on to the minifigures;
Heart Breaker Iron man : one of the best iron man suits, great detail and looks awesome.
The mandarin : nice to have different variety of him as in the mansion attack he has robes on. Look pretty good and like a villain.
all the figures are exclusive which is great.
the buggy is ok, looks better once built, i like the design but maybe a bit more detail and bigger however you cant complain due to the price. The flick fires are good and overall its a nice little set to have.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CzechMate1 Mandarin vs Iron Man
Welcome to my review of 76008 Mandarin vs Iron Man ultimate battle.
I had been wanting to complete my collection of IM3 sets, and this one looked pretty good, thus, I bought it. The figures are very good, both sporting exclusive variants. And yes - this scene didn't really happen, but remember these set are "loosely based off" the movie. I am a fan of the movie, so I won't go into detail about the characters in this, either.
The buggy is pretty cute, and with the rotating flame-thrower, it is armed well.
Overall, I rate this set, very highly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Chris79 Can't think of a poorer set!
This is a truly terrible set apart from the very nice iron man figure. The set has absolutely no relevance to the film, I have no idea what the vehicle is but it looks ridiculous and has no playable features.
Over to the mini-figures the iron man figure is nice but unless you are a serious collector it's not worth buying the set for. The mandarin figure is just plain awful, nothing like the mandarin in the film or comics, it might as we'll be titled drunken bum instead of the mandarin!
In summary I would not recommend buying this set unless you can pick it up for half the price or less. If you want a really nice Iron Man set, save your money and get the Tony Stark mansion set which looks great, has many features and a nice mandarin figure

Rated 5 out of 5 by LegoDino8203 Iron Man vs The Mandarain; Ultimate Showdown
The smallest of the Iron Man 3 sets, it is a great set to buy. The figs are quite unique. Iron Man ( Mark 17), aka the Heartbreaker has a specialy printed helmet that has new printing all over. The Mandarain has a new suit with no sleeves. Now the set. It is a small kart with a flame thrower and flick missiles attached to an arm. Now, this nehice has not in the movie nor does Iron Man wear the Heartbreaker, it makes a small cameo. Plus Stark doesnt fight Mandarain, in fact, Mandarain isnt in the final battle. But otherwise, this set is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ellis A Good Set!
This set is not bad for a couple of reasons first is the new Iron Man Suit AKA the Heartbreaker Armor and I have to say this Iron Man is alot better than the past Iron Man Figures not including the new War Machine figure I really like the blue eyes and the blue core reactor the Mandrain is not bad compaired to the other one in the Mailbu Mansion set and his flame buggy is pretty cool and I think it is cool that the Mandrain has a gun he carries in case Tony Stark blows up the buggy so he can maybe have a fighting chance.Overall I think this is a good set for two reasons 1 if your looking for a cheap way to get a Lego Iron Man figure I would get this set and 2 this is a cheap way to get a good Super Hero set if you don't have the money for the other Super or Dc Hero sets. Thank you Lego.
