This article is about the Alpha Team minifigure. For the Hidden Side minifigure, see Seymour TeeVee.

Tee Vee, alternatively formatted as TeeVee,[1] is an Alpha Team minifigure, first introduced the 2000 video game LEGO Alpha Team before appearing as a physical minifigure in 2001.

Description

In LEGO Alpha Team, Tee Vee is portrayed as a white television (represented by a printed 1x2 brick) mounted on white minifigure legs with a black hip piece, along with black antennae and a transparent blue light bulb mounted next to the screen. His physical minifigure in 6775 Alpha Team Bomb Squad was nearly identical to his appearance in LEGO Alpha Team, but with the electric light bulb cover (part 4773) replaced with a 1x1 round plate in the same color.

In 2002, Tee Vee appears as a brick-built ROV instead of a minifigure. The ROV has a bright yellow and black colour scheme, and appears with two slight variants between 4792 Alpha Team Navigator and ROV and 4789 Alpha Team Aquatic Mech, with the latter being slightly smaller and more compact than the former.

When Alpha Team was relaunched in 2004, Tee Vee was shown to have a new android body.

Background

Tee Vee is Alpha Team's communications robot.

In the original video game LEGO Alpha Team on which the sets were based,[2] Tee Vee assists the player, giving mission briefings, gameplay tips and tutorials, and story exposition.

During Alpha Team's search for the Ogel Control Center, Tee Vee works with the Alpha Team Bomb Squad.

In Mission Deep Sea, Alpha Team goes undersea to stop Ogel from mutating sea life, and Tee Vee appears as an ROV to allow him to help underwater. As shown in the Comic Adventure Into The Deep, Tee Vee still appears in his original form, but can activate rover mode, putting his "mind" in control of the ROV and leaving his normal body back inside the submarine. In Into The Deep, the ROV is destroyed by Ogel's mutants but is then repaired by Alpha Team; shortly afterward, it is captured by Ogel's forces and then released once Dash Justice destroys Ogel's orb machine.

In Mission Deep Freeze, Tee Vee assists Alpha Team with his new android body inside the Mobile Command Center.

Notes

  • Tee Vee and Ogel are both voiced by Oliver Fredericks in LEGO Alpha Team.
  • Tee Vee originates from LEGO Logic, the game that was ultimately redesigned into LEGO Alpha Team. Tee Vee and Ogel are the only characters whose designs remain unchanged from this initial concept.
  • LEGO designers Niek van Slagmaat and Nick Vás had been trying to get a Tee Vee minifigure into newer LEGO sets since 2016.[3][4] They ultimately succeeded with Seymour TeeVee in 2020, followed by the Wu Bots in 2021.
