Back when Avengers came out, there were related LEGO sets released. I picked up as few as possible to get all of the Avengers minifigs. With Avengers: Age of Ultron out, LEGO's released a bunch of new LEGO sets related to the new film. However, they split up the characters across various sets, so there's no trivial way to buy the entire team. I'd like to pick up the fewest number of sets to get the minifigs for the new Avengers. Based on the trailers, that means 3 characters: Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver, and Vision.

What's the fewest number of LEGO sets I need to purchase to get the new Avengers minifigs?

    Not to belittle this SE, but maybe bricks.stackexchange.com is a better fit? – System Down Apr 26 '15 at 1:29

    Why don't you just buy the minifigs individually from eBay? – Valorum Apr 26 '15 at 6:56

    @Richard Because of a terrible markup! Vision, for instance, is running ~$13 USD on BrickLink, for a set that's only $80. So, you're paying 16%+ the cost of the whole set in that case. If you've got the time, you're much better off buying the whole set and then reselling the bricks and minifigs you don't want. The non-Vision minifigs alone in the Vision set could net ~$35. – user31178 Apr 26 '15 at 7:28

    I maybe misunderstand the question but the fact that they are Avengers figs doesn't really matter, no? If I am right, it could be a better fit for Maths.SE – Taladris Apr 26 '15 at 13:45

My sources tell me that it looks like you'll need 5 out of the 6 total Ultron sets to get the new characters;

  1. Quicksilver: Hydra Fortress Smash

  2. Vision & Ultimate Ultron: Quinjet City Chase

  3. Scarlet Witch & Ultron Prime: The Hulk Buster Smash

  4. Ultron MK1 & Iron Legion: Attack on Avengers Tower

  5. Ultron Sentry's (both variants) & Iron Man MK45: Iron Man Vs. Ultron

  6. If you want the Hawkeye from the Helicarrier: Hydra Showdown

The top 3 will get you the new avengers, the remainder will get you all of the Age of Ultron variants.

  • I think the OP meant only the new Avengers heroes, which would mean 3 sets: 76041, 76032, 76031. Alternatively, since the Quicksilver set so so godawful, you should just not buy it and opt to get the minifig separate, if you so desire. – user31178 Apr 26 '15 at 7:22
  • I would add that Hulk Buster Smash and Hydra Fortress Smash both come with a new variant of Hulk, that has darker green coloring and spiky hair more in line with the movie depiction. – user31178 Apr 26 '15 at 19:18

If you want to save yourself around $200 you can buy them individually from a Lego minifig store or from Bricklink.

  • There is no official minifig store. The only official web store for LEGO is shop.lego.com. Additionally, The LEGO Company, due to licensing agreements, can't sell any licensed minifigs individually, as it's been ruled that qualifies as selling "action figures", which other companies have the license to sell for those brands, but LEGO does not. If you want the figures separately, you have to buy through a third party. – user31178 Apr 26 '15 at 8:20

    I used to work customer service for LEGO, so I'm picky about some stuff. – user31178 Apr 26 '15 at 8:45

    @CreationEdge - It won't please you to know that I used to buy the minifig keyrings for £5, pull out the keyring and sell them for a tenner on ebay then... – Valorum Apr 26 '15 at 8:48

    Works for me. They used to sell the magnets with the figures detachable, but Hasbro threw a fit so now they are fused to the magnet. I think they should be able to sell them, but it's the other companies legal tantrums that make the decision. – user31178 Apr 26 '15 at 8:51
