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 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.

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.

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.

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2: Meet the Talent Behind the Video Game Panel Recap

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 SDCC 2017

The LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2: Meet the Talent Behind the Video Game panel happened earlier today at San Diego Comic Con 2017 and there were tons of new information about the game that was exclusively revealed. The panel consisted of Arthur Parsons (head of design, TT Games), Bill Rosemann (executive creative director, Marvel Games), Justin Ramsden (designer, LEGO), Kurt Busiek (comics writer, Avengers Forever), and Dan Veesenmeyer (comic content artist, and LEGO Marvel’s Avengers) with Ryan Penagos serving as a moderator. I was live-tweeting the panel and it was hard to keep up with all the info they gave but I survived it and here’s a recap of what happened.

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 SDCC 2017

One thing that was touched on before the new trailer was the different versions of the same character will be able to team up which means that Spider-Man Noir can team up with the normal Spider-Man if you desire. Then they dropped the new trailer on us which Arthur says the public can expect it to go live on Monday. keep watch for Rocket Raccoon with chicken blasters.

Dan talked about recreating the Kang Dynasty storyline cover, written by Kurt Busiek, and turning it into LEGO form. A copy of this LEGO cover was given out to each person in the audience which has a nice shiny gold foil in various parts. Arthur also added that you will be able to collect these classic comic book covers in the game via minikits.

Vehicles will be making a return as there were a few that were revealed at the panel. We were able to see the Black Panther Jet, Crossbones’ Truck, and a Mini Ravager Jet.

Next up was what everyone has been waiting for, the new character reveals. There was the Vulture from Spider-Man: Homecoming, Doctor Octopus, Cosmo, Greenskyn Smashtroll, Throg, Forbush Man, Howard the Duck, Iron Duck, and Gwenpool. Regarding Cosmo, Arthur said there is an epic part of the game two-thirds of the way through that involves him. There was also Ravonna Renslayer that appeared just for a few seconds in the trailer. You’ll have to see it to find her.

There are over 200 playable characters that will be in this game and one of them will be the iconic Stan Lee. He returns again in the sequel but will be in peril again. If you are able to rescue him, you will be rewarded handsomely. Although there are over 200+ characters, none of them involves Fox franchises, mainly X-Men.

There will be no console exclusive characters so that means that all platforms will have the same playable characters unlike in the first game which angered many fans.

There were also bonus missions in the game as well. One of them involves Howard the Duck trying to pitch his video game idea to the devs at Chrono Con which is basically a gaming convention.

During the Q&A part of the panel, there were some good questions that were asked. One was about the new abilities and mechanics. Arthur didn’t go into too much detail but he said there were 96 different mechanics available. One of which is Kamala Khan who can shrink down in size and do mazes.

One child asked if Moon Knight will be appearing in the game. Arthur didn’t remember if he was or not but he’ll make sure that he will be in it.

One last thing that was that was mentioned was Mysterio battling the Sinister Six in one part of the game.

There were also ticketed giveaways at the panel for the attendees which include the foil comic print of Kang Dynasty. They also had the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes The Avengers Quinjet (30304) which was from the Age of Ultron sets from 2015. This polybag was fairly rare as it wasn’t that widely available at the time.

Stay tuned as I try to edit and transcribe my developer interview with Arthur Parsons. It’ll be a few days as I will be pretty busy after SDCC ends tomorrow.
