Unikitty! New Episode Premiere and Q&A

– 11:15am – 12:15pm | Room 6A

Your favorite character from The LEGO Movie now has her own show! Journey to a joyous kingdom full of sparkle matter, happy thoughts, and the occasional rage-out in Unikitty!, an all-new animated series. As ruler of the kingdom, Unikitty has busy days full of royal responsibilities. Unikitty is most interested in making sure everyone is happy and ridding the kingdom of negativity, but don’t misunderstand her optimism-she is one kitty not to be crossed. While she may be full of boundless energy and creativity, Unikitty is a force to be reckoned with if anyone gets in the way of spreading her positive vibes, especially if anyone makes her little brother and best friend, Puppycorn, sad. Also living in the castle are Dr. Fox, the resident scientist, and Unikitty’s trusty bodyguard, Hawkodile. Producers and members of the voice cast will give a sneak peek at this new series and explain how Unikitty and her friends will make sure that every day is the happiest and most creative ever! Produced by Warner Bros. Animation, Unikitty! is coming soon to Cartoon Network.

  • ItsMeDario

    No minifigures this year?

    • Matt Bailey

      Sorry, this is what I’m wondering about

    • Leo Chuah

      I”m not a fan of the Funko bricks at all. Yeah maybe I’m the minority but if there are no Lego minifigs this year, it will make

  • colby ostrin

    Allen, how early in the morning do you have to be there? I have never been and am curious.

    • Matt Bailey

      Same question

      • People usually start waiting in line early, sometimes the night before. The doors open around 7 for the exclusive ticketing stuff and then people get into their respective lines.

        I’ve gotten there around 6-6:30 and was able to get in line for the LEGO sets but they’re more popular now so there might be more people lining up.

      • ItsMeDario

        Matt, please see my answer above.

    • ItsMeDario

      Hey Colby,

      I do comic-con and the exclusives every year. The new sets Lego has been releasing are not as popular anymore. We tend to have rotating teams who camp out every night. We all end up meeting the person that camped out around 5am. The big lines are usually the WB signing, Funcopop, Hasbro and sometimes Bandi. Lego was selling Brickheadz last year and it was very underwhelming. You could hit all the other lines and still get in the Lego line in time to have a chance and getting one of the sets. Bottom line, people won’t be chasing these sets. The prices on eBay were very reasonable after comic-con. I believe they were selling for $50-60. They retail for $40. My recommendation, don’t wait in line. Enjoy the show and have fun. But, I would wait in line for the minifigures. It just doesn’t look like they’ve announced any minifigures this year. Those usually sell for $150+ and the line gets insane. Hope this helps.

  • Erik Pfingsten

    So does that mean the brickheadz will only be available there? In other words I will have to pay ebay scalper prices? Or will they be available for regular purchase later?

    • ItsMeDario

      eBay scalper price on these sets isn’t too bad. You should easily be able to get them for $50-60 each. They retail for $40.

  • ItsMeDario

    9am would be too late.
