LEGO Avengers Tower – Review

Let’s be honest, there is too much of a good thing. Well, at least in some areas. On the one hand you can never have too much LEGO, on the other we’re all a bit superhero fatigued right now.

So it is with a level of childhood glee to discover LEGO has released an all singing, all dancing LEGO Avengers Tower!

Of all the Marvel films to date the Avengers films were always the most fun. Seeing all those big heroes and even bigger Hollywood names all on screen together was cinematic joy. And this LEGO set is no different.

It comes complete with no less than 31 mini LEGO figures, including two Iron Men, a larger than usual Hulk and, just for good measure, a Kevin Feige figure – do with him as you see fit depending on your current feelings towards the state of cinema. But what impresses even more is that the Avengers Tower stands a staggering 90cm tall! If you’re old, like me, that’s three school rulers placed on top of each other. As if that wasn’t enough it also comes with a Quinjet, a host of Chitauri vehicles and a Hulk smashable Chitauri Leviathan.


This is the kind of LEGO project that would make a centrepiece for any LEGO collection. Remember the LEGO city in The LEGO Movie at the end that it turns out Will Farrell has been building for years, this would look glorious as the focal point of that work of art.

Now this particular construction comprises of over 5,000 pieces and, at least the box declares, is aimed at 18+ builders. But I’ve been happily constructing it with the aid of my 5 year old son. Admittedly he is something of a LEGO fan but at no point has he been deterred. In fact, much as it pains to say, I feel like I’ve become his assistant, merely a blunt instrument for him to deploy on piece finding rather than doing of the actual building aside from the more complicated parts.

And therein lies the biggest joy of the LEGO Avengers Tower – it is the perfect Christmas project. The kind of big build you start on Boxing Day and whittle away the cold limbo between Christmas and New Year with.

I’ve recently had the pleasure of building the LEGO Walt Disney Tribute Camera, which was a hugely enjoyable build. This LEGO Avengers Tower is every bit as satisfying, potentially more so if you’re a Marvel fan. 

A joyous LEGO build, the LEGO Avengers Tower gives all new meaning to Captain America shouting “AVENGERS, Assemble!”. 

The LEGO Avengers Tower is available to buy now directly from LEGO and all good retailers.

Alex Moss’ obsession with film began the moment he witnessed the Alien burst forth from John Hurt’s stomach. It was perhaps ill-advised to witness this aged 6 but much like the beast within Hurt, he became infected by a parasite called ‘Movies’. Rarely away from his computer or a big screen, as he muses on Cinematic Deities, Alex is “more machine now than man. His mind is twisted and evil”. Email: alex.moss@filmjuice.com
