The new LEGO Marvel Avengers Tower (76269) is now officially the largest set in the long-running theme coming in at 5,201 pieces while also retailing for $499.99. Let’s take a look at it to see if the price is justified with what you get.
As with a set this big, it also comes with a whopping 31 minifigures which include Tony Stark, Iron Man MK7, Iron Man MK6, two Captain America, Thor, Black Widow, The Wasp, Hawkeye, Wanda Maximoff, Falcon, Vision, War Machine, Pepper Potts, Wong, Nick Fury, Dr. Cho, Erik Selvig, Tony Stark SHIELD Agent, two SHIELD Agent, Alexander Pierce, four Chitauri, Loki, Ultron, Kevin Feige, a bigfig of Hulk, a nanofigure of Ant-Man, and a buildable Dum-E.
Tony Stark is shown wearing the Black Sabbath shirt with the logo reprinted as a helmet from the LEGO Exploriens theme. He does have a clear neck bracket for one of the play features later on when one of his suits is getting ready to be put on in the air. His double-sided head shows him with a stern look on one side and the other shows him with the HUD.
Iron Man MK7 has some detailed armor printing on both sides of the torso as well as on the legs. It does have some trans-light blue pieces for the repulsors and thrusters. The head is the same one as the regular Tony minifigure. He does have a separate hairpiece if he doesn’t want the helmet on.
Iron Man MK6 is the previous generation suit with the triangle arc reaction and has lots of battle damage on it. It has the same pieces for the repulsors and thrusters but also a trans-light blue head.
Captain America has on the red, white, and blue uniform with the star on the chest. There are some metallic silver printing sprinkles on both sides of the torso. He has a double-sided head showing a smile on one side and a stern look on the other. Since this version is from Endgame, he only has the brown hair. His accessory is his shield.
The other Captain America has the same outfit but the 2012 version has a covered head which also shows him with the same expressions as the other one along with a helmet.
Thor is back in his 2012 version with the round areas on the armor. A red fabric cape completes his look. His double-sided head shows him with a smile on one side and lightning eyes on the other. His accessories include his hammer Mjolnir with a lightning piece around it as well as a a clear curve piece to show him throwing Mjolnir.
Black Widow has on a simple black outfit with printing on the arms as well as on the legs. Her double-sided head shows her with a calm look on one side and an angry expression on the other one. Her accessory is a gun.
The Wasp has a slightly updated torso than from the previous version of her that was released. She wears a neck bracket that holds on to the plastic wings which is better than the fairy ones used in the previous version. Her double-sided head shows her with smiling and angry expressions. She has a helmet but also a extra ponytail piece.
Hawkeye is in his black outfit with red accents and lots of straps on both sides of the torso. He only has a single-sided head with a stern look. His accessories include the quiver and bow and arrow.
Wanda Maximoff wears a dark red outfit with black pants and there’s a fabric piece that goes around the waist. The corset is highly detailed but it’s not accurate to the outfit from the Age of Ultron. Her double-sided head shows her with a stern look on one side and an angry one on the other. She has some trans-red plates for her hex powers. She also has a clear brick to show her flying.
Falcon has the gray outfit from Age of Ultron with the armor going around the torso. Too bad there’s no arm printing on him. The legs also have some nice detailing as well. He has a single-sided head with his googles on. His accessories include two guns along with his brick-built wings that is covered with stickers. I’m not sure why LEGO didn’t just use the one from the Marvel Studio Series Collectible Minifigures.
Vision has on a really detailed teal and purple suit which looks good but looks a little too bright. The lower part of the legs as well as the plastic cape is translucent so it looks like it’s phasing. He also has the same clear brick Wanda has to show him flying.
War Machine is the same one from the Iron Man Armory (75216) with the gun-metal gray armor. He has a single-sided head showing a smirk but is covered up with the helmet. His accessories include some trans-red studs and bricks for his repulsors and thrusters as well as a neck bracket for his shoulder cannon.
Pepper Potts has on a generic black suit. Her double-sided head shows her with a smile on one side and an angry one on the other. Her accessory is a tablet screen showing a cheeseburger which is a reference for Tony’s love for cheeseburgers.
Wong is a weird inclusion to this set because I don’t believe he has even been to the Avengers Tower in the MCU. His outfit looks to be the one that he wore during Infinity War with the blue and red robes. His accessories include a pair of barrier spells. He also has a hot dog for some reason although I don’t think I’ve seen him eat a hot dog either.
Nick Fury has on the gray shirt with the black trenchcoat which goes down to the legs. His accessories include a gun and a radio.
Dr. Cho is a character that is in LEGO form for the first time. She wears the medical outfit that she’s seen wearing when she was creating Vision. Her double-sided head shows her with a smirk on one side and a scared expression on the other. Her accessory is a syringe.
Erik Selvig is also a brand new LEGO minifigure and he’s wearing the same blue shirt as Jerry Seinfeld. His double-sided head shows a stern look on one side and an annoyed one on the other. His accessory is a laptop.
The Tony Stark SHIELD Agent has on the blue uniform and bulletproof vest with the word SHIELD onn the back. He uses the same Tony Stark head with the HUD printing but I wish LEGO would have a different head for him since this is the third one used in this set. His accessory is a suitcase for the Tesseract but it’s empty.
There are two other SHIELD Agents, one male and one female, and they wear the same SHIELD uniforms as Tony.
Alexander Pierce wears a striped gray suit and he has an evil smile on his face. He seems to be a very generic minifigure.
There are four Chitauri who all have the same torso and face printing. This version of the Chitauri isn’t new as it has appeared in other sets. Two of them also has some weapons.
Loki is also not a new variant and he wears the dark gray robes with the gold and green detailing and a green fabric cape. His double-sided head shows him with an evil smile and the other with his mouth covered with the Asgardian Collar. He can either wear his gold helmet or just the regular hairpiece.
Ultron is an updated version of the MK1 suit showing off parts of his body with various damaged Iron Legion parts. He has soe trans-blue parts for his thrusters.
President of Marvel Studios Kevin Feige joins this set as an exclusive and is shown wearing a black shirt with a blue jacket. The Avengers logo hat could be very sought after as there hasn’t been one been produced until now. His accessories include a cup of coffee and a taco.
The Hulk has been updated and he now has a separate head piece so it can now rotate. The hair piece on him is also separate but it does not hold in place well. The body is pretty much the same as before with the rotating arms and wrists but the legs don’t move. Somehow I wish LEGO would’ve used a regular Bruce Banner minifigure instead or maybe have him replace one of the Chitauri.
Ant-Man is in nanofigure form and has been used in the Avengers: Endgame Final Battle (76192).
One look at the Avengers Tower is that it is very easily recognizable and everything sits on a 32×32 baseplate. Not only that, it stands at a towering 91cm which is about 3ft tall. Just a comparison, it’s as tall as a small child!
One of the panel of windows can be removed to access the inside. The ground floor has the tower lobby with the security/reception desk in front of the elevators. There’s also a Vita Rush vending machine along with some chairs as well. In the middle of the room, the Tesseract is just sitting there.
Heading up a floor, we have one of Tony Stark’s many labs and here we can see the Ultron A.I. attacking J.A.R.V.I.S. which is represented by trans-light blue rock and trans-orange dish.
Above the lab is a platform where present-day Captain America fights 2012 Captain America for the scepter and you can recreate the scene with America’s ass. Although LEGO doesn’t mention it, you can remove the glass platform to reach the lab in the back.
Going up another floor, we have another one of Tony’s labs, this one for his suits. Dum-E fits in here in the corner and is fully articulated. There are a lot of stickered screens used such as the Rescue Mark XLIX with the number 3000 which represents Morgan’s “I Love You 3000”, the Quinjet, and a tracker for Loki. A workbench on the side has Tony’s arc reactor as well as a dark red nanofigure of an Iron Man suit. There’s also a blueprint of Ultron with the numbers 19-68#54 which represents The Avengers Issue #54 from 1968 which was the first appearance of Ultron.
Next up, we have the room that was reconstructed from the Helicarrier which is the prison room for Loki. Next to it is a computer showing Arnim Zola from The Winter Soldier as well as a newspaper asking who is the Iron Man. The elevator next to it showing it broken down and also showing no Hulks allowed.
The Quinjet is built next is it’s a chibi version of the ship. Although it is small, it does still have a lot of the little details that the regular ship also has such as the angled wings that can fold in. A couple of stud shooters are flanked behind the cockpit which can hold one minifigure.
Following that, we have the room where the Avengers gather at during Ultron’s appearance. The back wall has the bar with various drinks. There’s two couches and a table in front of it. The table has a newspaper showing the Battle of New York along with Mjolnir which references the game to see who is worthy to wield it.
Connected to the front of room is the landing area for the Quinjet. The front area uses some flex tubes that are clipped on to give the round shape. In addition to the landing pad, there’s also a small hanger that the Quinjet can fit in when the wings are folded up.
The top floor has Bruce Banner’s lab where Loki’s scepter is being tested on. The room below is what’s supposed to be Tony Stark’s penthouse suite that has a couple of objects. There’s also a comic of the Avengers #1 from 1963. The floor on the other side of the wall has Loki’s imprints from when he was Hulk smashed.
The roof area has a very interesting build for the curved part in which it uses a series tiles connected to a run of flex tubes. It doesn’t connect to anything but just slots in between the skylight windows and the section on the back.
At the very top of the tower, we have the Tesseract-powered generator that uses a number of random parts.
On the outside of the tower, there are some Easter eggs going around it. Next to the front entrance is the Battle of New York Memorial which shows the Avengers names. Around the back of the tower, there’s a little pager on the floor which references Nick Fury contacting Captain Marvel at the end of Infinity War. There are Technic pins included to allow the tower to connect to other modular buildings.
Going up the tower, you’ll see that there are a ton of trans-black windows used, 269 to be exact. Building all the windows was extremely repetitive and the worst part of this set.
Halfway up the tower, there’s a part of the windows that is damaged and there’s a bar that allows Hulk to hang on it so you can recreate him smashing some Chitauri against the glass.
On the support beams throughout the tower going up, there are cross axle slots so you can plug in the trans-clear beams for the minifigures as well effects like the portal for Wong.
Under the hanger, there’s a spot to recreate Tony being thrown off the tower and the Mark VII armor being deployed.
There’s also one for Loki’s chariot which uses a mix of gold parts. Claw pieces are used for the handlebars. Loki’s cart is connected by a ball joint.
Although it can’t connect to the tower, the Leviathan also has the same color scheme as the chariot. The armor uses a lot of claw pieces for the various sections of the body and they are connected to each other using ball joints as well. The facial features on the head is somewhat limited but the jaw can be opened showing the purple tongue. The back of the head has a couple of studs for a Chitauri to stand on. The Leviathan connects to a trans-clear stand to simulate it flying.
Behind the Quinjet hanger, you get the iconic Avengers symbol on both sides of the tower. I do like how LEGO made the angles on it as it does pretty accurate. The back of the tower also has an “A” visible on the railings.
The LEGO Marvel Avengers Tower (76269) is the third rendition of the building and is a welcome one due to the other two being much smaller scale. It looks great but the number of windows you have to make is quite a lot. Both the interior and exterior have a lot of details and references to the Avengers movies.
The minifigure selection is decent but some of the more notable characters were omitted like Quicksilver and Maria Hill. LEGO could’ve replaced a couple of Chitauri for them but I’m not sure of the rationale of having four of them. The Kevin Feige minifigure could be a sneaky exclusive as I don’t expect him to be in any other sets.
The price of $499 seems a little expensive but you do get a lot in return in terms of looks and playability as there’s a lot to do on the outside and inside of the tower. I thoroughly enjoyed building it besides the steps with the windows.
