San Diego Comic Con 2016 will be kicking off very soon and there are plenty of LEGO-related things to do at the event. As part of the press, we’ve been invited to attend a roundtable session with some of the developers of TT Games including Game Directors James Mcloughlin and Arthur Parsons as well as some unannounced voice talents to discuss the new Year 2 content for LEGO Dimensions before their panel.
If you have any questions to ask about the upcoming LEGO Dimensions content, let me know in the comments section below all I’ll try my best to relay the messages. Please keep the questions strictly to what has been already announced and not to future LEGO themes or minifigures because they will most likely give a suggestive response.

LEGO has officially revealed another exclusive minifigure that will be given away next week at San Diego Comic Con 2016 which is the LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes Atom (Ray Palmer) from the CW’s Arrow, Flash, and the Legends of Tomorrow series. You also get a printed 4×4 plate decorated with Ray Palmer’s company, Palmer Technologies. Atom will be given away on Thursday, July 21 and on Saturday, July 23.
A few days ago, LEGO also revealed the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Steve Rogers Captain America as one of the exclusives at the event.
The minifigures will be given away in the Pavilion Terrace starting at 12:30pm but they usually start it a little earlier. LEGO will also be doing the giveaways on Twitter if you aren’t able to make it to SDCC.
As you probably saw from yesterday’s post about the LEGO Collectible Minifigures Series 16 (71013) being available in stores, there are some new details about them. It seems that there are reports the street date for them is possibly tomorrow, July 18. There is also a box breakdown of the minifigure distribution from CM4Sci on Eurobricks:
5 per box
4 per box
Dog Show Judge
3 per box
If you’re searching for some of the more highly sought-after minifigures like the Babysitter, Penguin Guy, or the Wildlife Photographer, you might have a harder time finding them since they only come three in a box. However, a popular one like the Banana Guy should be plentiful. I’ll have my “feel guide” for the Series 16 Collectible Minifigures up in a day or so stay tuned if you’re waiting for it.
It appears that the LEGO Collectible Minifigures Series 16 (71013) has starting to hit some stores like Toy R Us as well as some LEGO Stores. Considering that there has been any official news or announcements on this latest wave from LEGO, it’s interesting to see them being sold so early since they were scheduled for a September release. LEGO sleuth CM4Sci has been doing some phone calling and has found out that:
They want the Disney series to come back in September so it can be sold alongside the Disney castle, so they pushed Series 16 up.
I’m not sure if this is legitimate from LEGO but remember we do have the general release of the LEGO Disney Castle (71040) on September 1 while VIPs can get it from August 17-31. If you’ve been waiting for Series 16 to come out, you may want to check around because they might be already out in the wild and you might get lucky. Let us know in the comments if you did indeed find them available for purchase in stores.
I’m not sure where the image above came from as I linked it from Eurobricks, so let me know so I can give credit.
Remember a few months ago, when it was revealed that the LEGO Dimensions Green Arrow (71342) polybag was given out at E3 2016? It looks like that the same polybag will be given out at San Diego Comic Con next week during the LEGO Dimensions panel on Sunday, July 24. Attendees will be given the Green Arrow polybag upon entry to the panel as a “thank you” for attending the panel. Hopefully there aren’t people that just go there to get the polybag and leave right after but I’m pretty sure there will be.
