Eurobricks Raffel and Mystery Treasure Hunt

August 30, 2010

Just like everyone else, the members of Eurobricks are searching for the new Series 2 Collectible Minifigures. But they are doing it in a fun and interesting way. A combination of a scavenger hunt and a raffle all rolled into one their newest contest is a bit of both. If you’ve been drooling to get your hands on the Pop Singer, Karate Master, Pharaoh, or any of the other figures this might be your chance.

They are systematically unveiling a figure a day and giving you a hint at where in the vast Eurobricks forums to find them. Once all 16 are revealed (they are on figure #5) you have to compile a list of the exact link of where the figures are and send it in. If your list is correct then you get put in the raffle for a chance to win one of the 16 figures.

I guess I’m not all that good at guessing the clues, I only found the first one so far and the others seem to stump me pretty good. Not that I’ve tried very hard. 😉

If you are not already a member of Eurobricks, then unfortunately you can’t enter. But if you are, this is a fun and interesting way to win one of the new figures. You can read all the official rules of the contest and then get hunting. Good luck! 🙂

LEGO San Diego Comic Con 2010 Exclusives

July 17, 2010

The rumor of yesterday’s post is in fact now a fact: Five of Angus Maclane’s fun and funky Star Wars CubeDudes will be this year’s LEGO Comic Con Exclusive. 😀

Not only is there an image of them in the latest issue of Toyfair Magazine, but none other than Angus himself confirmed it on his Facebook page.

This will be the first time LEGO has ever offered a built and guled model, much less a CubeDude model, at Comic Con. Up until now they have all been either set or minifigure exclusives. You can read the entire press release at FBTB.

The CubeDudes will most likely be offered through a raffle ticket process where only those with the “winning” tickets get the chance to purchase the exclusive. This is a pretty standard way of offering low-quantity exclusives at Comic Con. As there are five, it will probably be one per day like last year. The 2009 exclusives were $50 each, pretty steep for three minifigs in a box, but there you are. There were 300 of the daily exclusives last year, no word on the amount made or the price point for this year’s. Also, Angus will be on hand both Friday and Saturday for an hour signing his models.
