LEGO Star Wars 2014 General Grievous Minifigure Found?

LEGO Star Wars 2014 General Grievous

A seller over on BrickLink has posted images of what appears to be the 2014 version of the LEGO Star Wars General Grievous minifigure. The seller is from the Czech Republic where a few leaks have originated from already including Batgirl and The Joker. If you gotten a chance to see the leaked images of the 2014 Star Wars sets, the minifigure from the seller does look very similar to the one in the pictures. General Grievous is listed in the General Grievous’ Wheel Bike (75040). As you can see, he is now white instead of tan and his eyes are a little bit different from previous versions.

To Azog or Not To Azog

You may have heard by now but there was a mysterious Azog given away randomly at this year’s San Diego Comic Con. Nobody knew when it was given away since it was just handed out by casual clothed employees. Only 100 of Azog was given out and the exclusiveness of it has driven the prices on the minifigure to unheard of amounts on eBay.

As of this writing, there are at least $13,000 worth of Azog minifigures that have already been sold on eBay, including one that sold for $299.95 which is a steal compared to the others. Although another fairly exclusive minifigure have been going for a lot, Mr. Gold, none have match the highest Azog minifigure at $1750. For the completists, this amount is most likely unattainable and their collection will now have a blemish. The difference is that there are 5000 Mr. Gold minifigures compared to only 100 of Azog.

The question is, who is to blame for the absurd amounts that they’re going for? Is it LEGO’s fault for giving out the exclusively exclusive Azog and limiting them to 100 and only attendees had a chance to get it or is it the sellers greediness that has made the prices so inflated?

Some may say that the blame goes to LEGO because they gave it out to random attendees and the people who couldn’t go will never have a chance to get it. Others say that it’s the sellers’ fault because they’re just there to make a quick buck. It … Continue

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Video Game UK Pre-Order Bonus

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Video Game Walmart Pre-order - Iron Patriot

Our friends over at Brick Fanatics is reporting that the UK will have the Iron Patriot minifigure (30168) as a pre-order bonus for purchasing the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes video game from Amazon.co.uk. It looks like that you can also get the Iron Patriot with the handheld versions of the game including the Playstation Vita, Nintendo 3DS, and the Nintendo DS. The game will be available in the UK on November 15th.

If you’re here in the States, Walmart is still offering the minifigure as the pre-order bonus but it is only available for the console system versions. Over here, the game is available on October 22nd, however, I do wish that Amazon here offered the same bonus as the on in the UK.

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

The polybag contains five pieces. The cape is not protected by any cardboard. The design of Jor-El looks very similar to Superman with some subtle differences. The whole costume is a little bit darker blue than his son’s. However, the “S” emblem on the middle of the chest is of brown. His cape is also brown colored instead of the red that superman has.
