For whatever reason, Hasbro opted not to make Marvel Legends figures for most of the new characters appearing in Age of Ultron. Quicksilver was completely left out, but at least Scarlet Witch and Vision got new comic based figures. Maybe they will eventually get around to releasing them, but until then I figured that this Vision is close enough to fill in until a movie version gets made. Vision is labeled as "Marvel Heroes" on the packaging, because he's a swap figure with Doctor Strange. They come with different Hulkbuster parts, so I don't know why they aren't just completely separate figures. I'm guessing there is some bean counting going on that this is the better financial option for Hasbro, but from the outside it is somewhat mystifying. Vision includes no accessories, unless you count his cape. It is packaged separately, and it is removable, so maybe it does count. The cape itself makes him a bit back heavy, but fortunately it is long enough that it can be used to prop him up.
