What is grief, if not love persevering? This profound question invites reflection as we unveil an exquisite new diorama capturing the essence of Vision (Paul Bettany) from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Created by Diamond Select Toys, this remarkable model will make its debut at the highly anticipated San Diego Comic-Con, and FilmSweep brings you an exclusive first look.
Drawing inspiration from the Avengers’ creation of Vision to combat the formidable Ultron in Avengers: Age of Ultron, this diorama showcases the battle-ready upper half of Vision. The uncanny resemblance to Bettany, who also portrayed JARVIS, Tony Stark’s (Robert Downey Jr.) artificial intelligence in the Iron Man suit, adds a captivating touch.
Within the MCU, Vision is portrayed as a synthetic humanoid with a vibranium-infused body, granting him incredible strength, durability, and the ability to take flight. His forehead houses the Mind Stone, which bestows upon him an array of powers, including energy projection, density manipulation, and the capacity to interface with computer systems.

A Brief Retrospect of Vision’s Journey in the MCU
Throughout the MCU, Vision emerges as an Avenger and plays pivotal roles in several films, including Avengers: Age of Ultron, Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War, and Avengers: Endgame. His relationship with Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen), known as Scarlet Witch, unfolds and becomes a central aspect of his character development. In Infinity War, Vision falls victim to Thanos (Josh Brolin), who seeks the Mind Stone embedded in his head—an agonizing loss for Wanda.
The aftermath of this tragedy forms the core narrative of the Disney+ limited series, WandaVision, wherein Wanda experiences emotional turmoil and creates an alternate reality where she and Vision have a family. Meanwhile, S.W.O.R.D. scientists resurrect Vision using his original body and send him after Wanda. As Vision recovers his memories, courtesy of Wanda’s creation, he embarks on a quest to rediscover his purpose.
The grand unveiling of the diorama will take place live on Wednesday, July 19th, at Booth 2607 during SDCC. Pre-orders for this remarkable piece will commence on Friday, July 21st, at diamondselecttoys.com. Standing 6″ tall at a 1/6 scale, the diorama is expected to start shipping in the first quarter of 2024, priced at $130.
