Comic Con Day 1 and LEGO Hobbit News

by

Bag End

What is a hobbit without his home? We saw the figures, but not the set until today when it was unveiled at Comic Con.

My first thought was — Green Parts Pack!!! Oh, and you get some figures too. :D

Okay at $59.99 its not exactly a steal for all that green, but of course you do get all those awesome new figs with fun new elements!

Today at the booth was all about Lord of the Rings and Hobbit. There was a scavenger hunt at the very, very start of the day where you got a map and had to get the parts of Bilbo

Unfortunately due to the crazy factor, the line for this was capped very early so even I was not able to get a map or a fig :(

There was also a mosaic build, part of a 4 day mosaic build. That anyone could participate in and a station so you could play LEGO Lord of the Rings Video Game.

Tomorrow the craziness factor increases to a factor of 11 (at least) due to it being Super Heros’ Day. Where they will be giving four different figures (100 of each) to those lucky enough to get their badges scanned early. You will only get a chance to win one of the four, if you win one at all.

It will be slightly (and I do mean slightly) better than last year’s fiasco with the Batman and Green Lantern figs. It will be more fair, but still the crazy factor will be off the charts. Lucky for me, I’m not working the LEGO booth this year, so I don’t have to deal with disappointed people unhappy with not getting a chance to participate.

I will be doing something I’ve never done before tomorrow (well today since its already 1:30 am) — I will be on a panel! I’m excited about it. Of course there are eight of us on the panel so I will only have about 5 minutes to talk, but hey, that’s more than most people get at Comic Con. I’m looking forward to my 5 minutes of Comic Con fame. :D

That’s all for now. I still have 3 days to go and very little time to sleep before I start all over again tomorrow. ;)

    Great looking set. I love the mosaic. The scavenger hunt for Bilbo sounds cool. Thanks for keeping us informed. I haven’t been to a convention with a LEGO theme yet but I’ll attend and vend at one this Nov in Memphis.
