A new promotion started today at official LEGO stores and the Online LEGO Shop. The #40334 LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Avengers Tower is free with purchases of $75 or more on all LEGO Marvel Super Heroes sets. This promotion will run until May 2nd, or until supplies last. This is a quite substantial set featuring a mini version of the Avengers Tower and an exclusive minifigure. There is a lot to like here, so let’s take a look. Also, note that LEGO VIP members get a free LEGO Marvel Super Heroes poster as well with purchases of $35 or more.
The #40334 LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Avengers Tower comes with 211 pieces to build a mini replica of the iconic Avengers Tower. The tower itself is built in the style of the LEGO Architecture sets with advanced building techniques and architectural details. In fact, I think it might fit with some of the LEGO Architecture sets quite well! The interior structure is surprisingly colorful and makes building the set more interesting. All those colors are eventually covered over by gray bricks, plates, tiles, and other parts. It is also worth noting that the two Avengers logos on top are printed 2×2 round tiles.
The set also comes with a mini Quinjet, which can be zoomed around, parked on the landing platform, or attached in a flying pose to the tower with a trans-clear antenna piece. This is a great little play-feature, and will probably inspire fans to build extra Quinjets.
The included minifigure is an exclusive version of Tony Stark, depicting his transformation to his Iron Man Mark 8 suit. As you can see, his right arm and part of his torso already transformed. The head is double-sided with Tony’s regular face on one side, and an Iron Man helmet display printed over his face on the other side. Both a regular hairpiece and an Iron Man helmet are included.
The box has a nice design as well. It is quite large (about 10 x 5.5 x 2.5 inches), and features the Avengers Tower, the Quinjet, and the Tony Stark minifigure from a couple of different angles, mixed with some Iron Man graphics. At the bottom of the front, back, and sides there is a Marvel Studios – The First Ten Years logo, celebrating the first ten years of Marvel Studios and all of the films from Iron Man to Captain Marvel. (As a side note; if you are interested in the history of Marvel, there is a book called Marvel Studios: The First Ten Years published by Titan Comics with in-depth sections on each film with beautiful photos and lots of great info.)
All in all, this is a fantastic set, especially considering that it’s free! It would make a great display-piece for Marvel fans, and as I said above, it could be incorporated into a LEGO Architecture scale mini cityscape. Now, the set is not entirely fee given that you do have to spend $75 to get it, but LEGO didn’t have to give away such a generous gift. In addition, there are plenty of new LEGO Marvel Super Heroes sets to easily meet the minimum requirement. We talked about the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Avengers: Endgame sets recently (see: LEGO Marvel Avengers: Endgame Sets Reviews), and some of the older sets are also still available. And remember that two of the new sets come with Double VIP Points! You can find them all at the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes section of the Online LEGO Shop.
