Hasbro’s latest Vision action figure will make you believe that even an android can cry.

I’ve been seriously loving this Marvel Legends Vintage series. It gives Hasbro a chance to redo some favorite characters. The first wave consisted of Marvel’s more popular characters, but now with series 2, we are really getting into the nitty-gritty, with the Vision being one of them.

This isn’t Vision’s first time as an action figure. Toy Biz first did him in 2004, but I wasn’t overly impressed. Something was just off on this figure. When Hasbro first got the Marvel Legends license, the Ares wave had the Vision, but I thought the entire sculpt wasn’t that great. Since then we, Hasbro gave us different versions of the Vision, but for me, none of them hit the mark. (Don’t even get me started on the movie version. Ugh!) To me, it wasn’t MY Vision. The iconic one designed by Roy Thomas and John Buscema. That was the one I really wanted.

Now when I saw the pictures of the Marvel Legends Vintage Vision figure, I seriously had to have it.

This figure is just plain awesome! 

It’s a more slender figure, and it really works for Vision. He has the standard points of articulation of all Marvel Legends. 

The paints are just solid. I not seeing any paint slop. Really nice. What I truly love is the metallic shine that the figure has, except for his face. His face is a nice flat red. Just looks great. For those who don’t know, the Vision actually has red flesh underneath the costume. 

The cape is removable and he comes with an extra head. In this case, it’s Ultron. So you can swap between the 2 heads.

Yes, this figure is pretty much very vanilla with the lack of accessories, but I’m just so happy to get that iconic Vision I remember fondly from the comics!

I highly recommend this Vision for your collection!
