76269 Avengers Tower includes the minifigures in any single set ever designed and though many of them are existing minifigures, there’s one especially detailed iteration of a rare LEGO Marvel character. The Vision minifigure in 76269 Avengers Tower is exclusive to the massive set and includes transparent printed legs and a similar cape that showcases his unique power.
“We have a new version of Vision which has a new cape and he’s generally in a new colour scheme,” states Senior Graphic Designer Mark Tranter in the set’s designer video. “What we tried to do with this is show his phasing ability, which you see when he’s first created. We’ve given him transparent legs as if he’s phasing upwards.”
Earlier in the video, the graphic designer confirms that Vision was not his favourite minifigure to work on, despite the level of detail in this innovative minifigure. It turns out that Tranter’s favourite minifigure to work on was the revised Ultron MK1.
The original Ultron MK1 minifigure is included in the retired 76038 Attack on Avengers Tower from 2015. After eight years, it’s about time for a new version of this minifigure but considering the difference in detail between it and Vision, it’s surprising to hear that the Senior Graphic Designer’s favourite minifigure to work on wasn’t Vision.
76269 Avengers Tower and its 31 minifigures (or 32 characters) launch on November 24 for £429.99 / $499.99 / €499.99 with over 5,000 pieces. You can read our in-depth review and see our gallery of images by clicking here.
- LEGO has been a part of my life ever since I was young. It all started when my brother passed down 7657 AT-ST to me. It’s guided me through my early years, through school and eventually through my degree in journalism. I still have all my collection proudly on display, including my many NINJAGO sets, my favourite of all the LEGO Group’s themes. Outside of Brick Fanatics I am an avid gamer and enjoy a good game of Dungeons & Dragons.
