I’m back with another daily recap for San Diego Comic Con 2015. In this post, I’ll cover both Friday and Saturday since nothing much happened on Friday. On Friday, my day was pretty open since there were no LEGO panels happening that day. The LEGO booth was also pretty bland that day. The reveal of the day was the LEGO Ninjago Temple of Airjitzu (70751).
The exclusives for the day were the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Throne of Ultron and the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes All new Captain America (Sam Wilson). For the Throne of Ultron set, I didn’t really want to try to get the ticket but I had some time to waste in the morning and I snuck in line. For the Sam Wilson Captain America minifigure, the line started way early and I was further back than I was the day before at the same time.
For Saturday, I was pretty busy throughout the whole day which kind of made up for nothing happening on Friday. In the morning, I went to line up for the ticket to get the LEGO Star Wars Dagobah Mini-Build was all the way down the boardwalk. The wait paid off since I was able to get the set. The LEGO BIONICLE Skull Scorpio Mask giveaway wasn’t as busy as I thought when it was time to line up for that because I was able to get in the shaded area where the raffle was taking place at. Again, I was able to get that exclusive too. At the current time, I’m at 4/4 for LEGO SDCC 2015 exclusives.
The LEGO booth reveal for Saturday was the LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens Stormtrooper Buildable Figure (75114) which comes out in January 2015. It has 81 pieces and will retail for $19.99.
In the afternoon, I was inside most of the day since there were two panels. The first panel was A Look at LEGO Fans and the members of it was Joe meno, Paul Lee, Brandon Griffith, Nathan Sawaya, and Tommy Williamson. You’ve probably heard of these guys before. The panel basically just showed off some of their creations with the audience being pretty engaged. At the end Tommy showed the sequel to his LEGO Batman Vs Superman video which was equally as funny as the first one.
The next panel was for the LEGO Marvel’s Avengers video game where they revealed some new playable characters and a special appearance by Stan Lee. At the end of the panel, tickets were handed out to everyone in the audience for an exclusive LEGO Marvel’s Avengers t-shirt featuring Hulk beating up on Loki.
