Okay, I was planning on posting last night, but I was a little (well actually a lot) tired. For those who haven’t been, Comic Con can be intense!!!!
Well, LEGO premiered the new Toy Story and Prince of Persia minifigs.
No price points or official release dates yet, and sorry about the poor quality of some of the photos, its a little hard to get a good shot through the display case. You can see better pictures at FBTB.net
As I also mentioned, two of my models are on display this year at the TwoMorrows Publishing booth — publisher of BrickJournal. I have my LEGO Batman Mosaic and my Comic Con logo on display. I was given permission from Comic Con to create their logo.
LEGO also has SEVEN Comic Con exclusives this year! They are all Star Wars related, because it is the tenth anniversary of LEGO Star Wars. There are two micro ships for the BrickMaster exclusive (you have to go in a raffle to get the “chance” to buy it), sorry I haven’t taken a picture yet. There are six sets of 3 Star Wars minifigures — one exclusively for each day of the Con (also a raffle), and one that is available the whole Convention. They are all $50 each. A little pricey for my personal taste, but they are selling like hot cakes!
For the first time at Comic Con, LEGO is having a building event. That was the project I was working on today with fellow Model Builder Mark. It is a mystery mosaic build (sorry no picture yet). I know what it is, but I’m not telling. 😉
On the video game front, Warner Brothers is premiering LEGO Rock Band!
I still haven’t gotten to play the game yet, but from what I’ve seen, I really want the game!
DK Publishing also had their LEGO Star Wars Visual Dictionary panel today where they officially announced the ceremonial Luke minifig. I’ll get a picture up soon.
That’s all for now, I have to get up really early (4am) to get decent parking. I’ll try for some more pictures and more updates tomorrow.
