LEGO San Diego Comic Con 2013 Day 2 Recap

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes SDCC 2013 Exclusive Spider-Man Minifigure

On the second day of the 2013 San Diego Comic Con, it went mostly well at the LEGO booth. The main concern was how the LEGO staff was planning to control the overcrowding issue for the exclusive minifigure giveaway that was stopped abruptly yesterday. The management team figured out one way to deal with the issue was to hold the raffle outside in the West Terrace of the Convention Center. From what it looked like, it was a pretty successful raffle. The only thing that was bad about it was that it was outside and the sun was beaming down on our heads. The line moved pretty quickly and there were two staff members handing out the raffle tickets. After that, you just have to wait until 3:30pm for the LEGO booth to announce the winners. There was also a bonus drawing for the rest of yesterday’s Spider-Woman minifigure. When the winners were announced, I tweeted that I was one of the winners of exclusive The Amazing Spider-Man minifigure! After I calmly picked up my prize, I posted an image on my Instagram account to prove that I was actually a winner. Above is the picture I took after I got back home. In other giveaway news, there another minifigure that was given out to Comic Con attendees. FBTB reported that an Azog minifig was given out somewhere that was not the LEGO booth. We’re still not sure where or how to get Azog as of this time.

Today, LEGO also revealed the new LEGO … Continue

LEGO San Diego Comic Con 2013 Day 1 Recap

LEGO Sign

Day 1 at the 2013 San Diego Comic Con is finally over and I haven’t been this tired in a very long time. Let me do a recap on all things LEGO related today at the Con. The biggest news there was probably the failure of the exclusive Spider-Woman minifigure giveaway. As you may have seen in my earlier post, the LEGO floor staff had to shut down the whole thing 15-20 minutes into the giveaway due to overcrowding. If you’ve been to SDCC before, once there’s any sort of overcrowding, they would be forced to shut down things like this. As a result, there are still some left over raffle tickets left over for Spider-Woman and will be given out tomorrow morning at 11:30 but this time it’s at the West Terrace. At that time, LEGO will also be giving out tickets for the Amazing Spider-Man minifigure as well. At 3:30pm, check if you have a winning ticket on LEGOraffle.com and if you do, head back to the LEGO booth to pick up your precious.

Another thing that I noticed that was a little out of control was the line for the LEGO The Hobbit Micro Scale Bag End and the LEGO Star Wars JEK-14 Mini Stealth Starfighter exclusive sets. People were lining up for the minifigure giveaway when the line was for tickets to get the two sets. This confusion led to a line that snaked a couple of times around the whole booth. There were only a limited amount of each set … Continue

LEGO San Diego Comic Con 2013 Half Day Report

Day 1 so far at the 2013 San Diego Comic Con has been a doozy. The day started off hectic right as we got to enter the exhibit hall. Right when we got in, there was a line to purchase the exclusive The Hobbit Micro Bag End and the Star Wars Mini JEK-14 Star Stealth Starfighter. There were only a limited amount of sets being sold each day and I was fortunate to be able to get the last sets available. The line wrapped around the booth twice and if you weren’t one of the first people in line for the exclusives, you were out of luck. The LEGO CUUSOO Back to the Future DeLorean Time Machine was also available for purchase.

Now to what went bad today at the booth. If you follow my Twitter, you probably saw my update that the staff people stopped the giveaway for the exclusive Spider-Woman minifigure. The crowds so out of control that they had to stop the whole thing altogether. This was very bad planning on the floor staff. There was absolutely no control of the crowd as people were just randomly lining up early and causing congestion. One of the staff members told me that they would have to rethink their strategy for tomorrow’s giveaway.

Update: There will now be two minifigures given away at 11:30am. Let’s see what the LEGO staff has in mind tomorrow or else we’ll have the same exact issue as today.

Not all things went bad at the LEGO booth though. … Continue

LEGO Reveals 2013 San Diego Comic Con Exclusive Sets

LEGO has revealed the exclusive sets they will be selling at the 2013 San Diego Comic Con. They are the LEGO The Hobbit Micro Scale Bag End and the LEGO Star Wars JEK-14 Mini Stealth Starfighter. There is no word on how much they will be going for but we’re predicting around $40 like last year’s. There will also be a limited quantity being sold as well.

The Micro Scale Bag End consists of 130 pieces and includes a Bilbo Baggins minifigure. The JEK-14 Mini Stealth Starfighter has only 105 pieces and includes the JEK-14 minifigure. These sets are a smaller version of there regular counterparts. It looks like LEGO went with the box packaging, much like the Minecraft sets, this year instead of the tin packaging for the past couple of years.
