LEGO DC Super Hero Girls NYCC 2016 Exclusive Batgirl Revealed

LEGO DC Super Hero Girls NYCC 2016 Exclusive Batgirl

During LEGO’s tour of the New York Comic Con 2016 booth, the host showed off the exclusive that will be given away at the convention this week which will be the Batgirl minidoll. If you didn’t see the press release from this morning, LEGO will be doing daily drawings to give away Batgirl. There’s no word on how the drawing will work but I have a feeling that it’ll be similar to SDCC where you tap the iPad to see if you’re a winner or not. If you can’t make it to NYCC, LEGO is also doing a giveaway on Twitter where you just retweet their giveaway tweet and they’ll randomly choose a winner.

As for the exclusive Batgirl minidoll itself, it looks to be similar to the one in the Batgirl Batjet (41230) but you also get the clamshell with the New York Comic Con cardboard. The images I used are clipped from the video so the resolution isn’t that good but check out the tour of the LEGO NYCC 2016 booth below to see a clearer image of it.

More Fake LEGO Products Showing Up at Comic Cons

Last week was New York Comic Con and The Brick Show was there with West End Toys, a company that sells legitimate LEGO products. However there are other “companies” there that also sell what appears to be LEGO but in reality, they’re just cheap knock-offs from China.

Stephen went around to a few booths showing what products they’re selling and found there were about “20-30” booths selling all kinds of counterfeit LEGO from bricks to minifigures. As LEGO fans, we know which minifigures are legit and which are not but parents and kids who aren’t enthusiasts can’t really tell the difference because they look so similar and are priced way cheaper. As one person at these booths states about selling fake LEGO,

“Doesn’t matter, that’s the best part. They fit on the thing and that’s all that matters to me. I’m all about capitalism.”

That statements bugs me because they’re all about the money. Notice they don’t even use the correct terminology when describing where the minifigures are standing on as they only call it “the thing.” Not a stand or on studs but “the thing.”

Note that this was at New York Comic Con, one of the largest fan conventions in the US. This is my first time hearing about booths selling fake LEGO products at these conventions as I don’t see them at San Diego Comic Con but then again, they are different organizers so they probably don’t care what is sold there.

As LEGO keeps growing bigger and bigger, the more likely companies … Continue

LEGO BIONICLE 2014 NYCC VIP LEGO BIONICLE Event - Exclusive Tahu Mask

Earlier today, we reported on an exclusive LEGO BIONICLE Tahu Mask for the first 200 attendees to line up at the LEGO booth at New York Comic Con 2014. For those who had the special invite to the BIONICLE panel, they were also invited to an after hours event at the new Flatiron District store. There they were given one of the limited Exclusive Tahu Masks which are individually numbered to only 100.

On this one, you get a different card backing from the one that was given out at the booth. There’s a red strip across the center saying “2014 NYCC VIP LEGO BIONICLE Event” and on the bottom left corner, you’re told which one out of 100 you have.

Thanks to Chad from Your Creative Friends for sending over an image of the Tahu Mask.
