LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes Legends of Tomorrow SDCC 2017 Vixen Review

LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes Legends of Tomorrow Vixen

On two separate days at San Diego Comic Con 2017, LEGO was giving away to attendees an exclusive LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes Legends of Tomorrow Vixen. If you’re not a fan of the show, you may be wondering who this character is. There are actually two versions of the character in the Arrowverse with this one being Mari’s grandmother. Like with previous exclusive SDCC LEGO minifigures, she comes in a clamshell with a backing card.

Vixen wears a dark brown outfit with some tan armor printing. There’s also printing of the Anansi Totem necklace that goes around her neck. The legs also have some more detail printing including the knee armor. Her double-sided head piece is nouget colored with a normal expression on one side and a smirk on the other. Her hair piece is brown with a braid in the back.

The LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes Legends of Tomorrow Vixen minifigure is a pretty obscure character for those who aren’t familiar with the show. This also marks the second SDCC minifigure in a row for Legends of Tomorrow joining Atom from last year. Will we continue this trend of seeing more LoT minifigures at SDCC or will we be seeing other DC properties? We shall see in less than a year. Admittedly, Vixen isn’t as popular as the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Deadpool Duck but she was popular enough for people to line up hours before the raffle started for a chance to get her.

LEGO Ninjago Showrunner Responds to Concerns for Season 8

LEGO NInjago Sons of Garmadon

Yesterday was the LEGO Ninjago TV series panel at SDCC 2017 and attendees were able to see a short clip of the Season 8 Sons of Garmadon. While I was live-tweeting, some fans had more questions that were answered at the panel while others were somewhat skeptical of what to expect. Showrunner Tommy Andreasen has taken to Twitter to give a response on some of the feedback. Here’s the transcribed version.

Hi All!

Thank you all for your responses to our season 8 sneak peak, revealed at San Diego Comic Con. Some of you have asked some questions or expressed concerns, so here is a response which hopefully will address most of them.

Season 8 of Ninjago is scheduled to come out in 2018. Though it may not be evident from the opening scene revealed at Comic Con, it is indeed the continuation of the TV series story line. It has been specifically written with a keen eye on what long time fans of the series have expressed desire to know more about.

One of Ninjago’s key strengths has always been it’s ability to change. We want each season to feel unique, and the show has a long history of twisting plots, structure and taking daring chances.

Several characters like Zane and Cole has had major updates during the series long run. Usually these changes happen within the episodes. This time however since time has passed since the end o Hands of Time, the changes are simply there. Where it may raise questions as you first encounter it, most of these changes will be touched upon in the episodes. The most notable change you have already seen on Lloyd. The other Ninja, though they may have some adjustments, will be using the original face rigs from teh series and be voiced by the original voice cast, so rest assured that these are in fact the characters you know and love. Strengths, flaws, relationships, back stories and all.

Season 8 is still quite a way away, so we will not reveal any specifics for a while.

Most other things about Ninjago are business as usual:

  • The story line is writeen by the Hagemans who are also executive producers.
  • The season is produced by Wilfilm.
  • Peter Hauser is lead director and Louise Barkholt producer.
  • It will be scored by Michael Kramer and Jay Vincent.
  • Designs are overseen by Simon Lucas and his team.
  • Vicky Kjaer Jensen, Tommy Kalmar and I are there helping out on the production and provide concept, creative and continuity sparring.

In short: The new season(s) are being developed by the original creators and long time participants, who also happen to be some of the biggest Ninjago fans in the world.

One thing that has changed:

Wilfilm has made changes to their production pipeline which allows for an even better visuals and special effects. Though it is still early in production we can honestly say that it will be the best looking Ninjago you have ever seen of TV.

I hope this this helps answer some of your questions/concerns. In the wise words of good old Wu (shamelessly copied after the great Bruce Lee): Be water! Change can be good.

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes SDCC 2017 Deadpool Duck Review

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes SDCC 2017 Deadpool Duck

It wasn’t announced until Preview Night of San Diego Comic Con 2017 but I have managed to get the exclusive LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Deadpool Duck. He is basically what happens when Deadpool is combined with Howard the Duck which was first introduced in a five issue miniseries at the beginning of the year. The clamshell that Deadpool Duck uses is the same one as before in previous years. The backing is just a two-sided one with the back promoting LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2.

The torso is a new one with updated printing. There are now straps that go around the shoulders and around the back. There’s also some brown pouches around the waist as well. The Deadpool buckle is a little bit larger. The legs are of the short variety as he is a duck. The head gets a makeover which uses the Donald and Daisy head mold from the LEGO Collectible Minifigures Disney Series (71012). The head is now painted with the red and black Deadpool mask with one eye squinting.

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes SDCC 2017 Deadpool Duck

Overall, the exclusive SDCC 2017 LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Deadpool Duck is a great addition to any collection. Considering Deadpool hasn’t appeared in a set since 2013 with the Wolverine’s Chopper Showdown (6866), any variant of him is a good. Unfortunately for fans who weren’t able to attend SDCC, the only way to possibly get it is having really good friends or on the secondary market. The price of it has dropped somewhat since SDCC ended but it’s still one of the more expensive exclusive LEGO minifigures.

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes SDCC 2017 Deadpool Duck

To tell you about the process of how I got Deadpool Duck, I didn’t try for him on Thursday mainly because of what happened last year at SDCC. Basically, my press badge wouldn’t allow me to get him although it didn’t specifically say that press couldn’t do it. I assumed that this year would be the same until I found out that I could try for it. As a result, I had to wait until Saturday to try for it. Luckily the iPad gods were generous enough to give me the green Good Cop sign and I managed to walk away with it. Right after, I walked out of the line, there were a number of scalpers waiting to buy them off of people by offering $100 for it just so they can flip it a few seconds later on eBay. Like I’ve said many times before, time is the most important thing at SDCC. If you guys want to know, I waited in line for three plus hours with my group for a chance to win this so I got pretty lucky.
