You may have seen the big pop culture announcement yesterday but in case you didn’t, it was announced that San Diego Comic Con 2020 has been officially cancelled. It’s not too surprising as businesses still aren’t ready to be opened and probably won’t be for some time due to the COVID-19 situation.
As for the LEGO exclusives that were planned for the event, nobody knows what will happen to them since everyone had to switch strategies. It is possible that LEGO puts them on the Reward Center as a raffle but that would be somewhat unfair for the attendees who were supposed to be there as it was an exclusive thing to them. Either way, we’ll see what LEGO does with the products they had planned for SDCC, if anything.
The last few weeks have been an unprecedented time. Since it is becoming apparent that COVID-19 restrictions will not be a short-term matter, we have made the sad decision to cancel Comic-Con for the first time in its 50-year history.
