First Look at LEGO Star Wars 15th Anniversary Minifigure Case

Continuing with our LEGO San Diego Comic Con 2014 coverage, has given a first look at the LEGO Star Wars 15th Anniversary Minifigure Case that will be displayed at the LEGO booth (#2829). As we mentioned before, the case will consist of over 600 LEGO Star Wars minifigures and measures 6.5 feet high. The case itself is also constructed out of 54,404 LEGO bricks and weighs 268 lbs. It took LEGO Master Model Builder Erik Varszegi, who also created the Smaug statue for the Warner Bros. booth (#4545), 500 hours to design and build the whole case. This will be the first time that every single LEGO Star Wars minifigure, from 1999 to the present, including big figs, will be displayed at one location. I’ll be there all four days so stay tuned for more LEGO news coming out of SDCC 2014!

Zur-En-Arrh Batman Revealed as Exclusive Minifigure at SDCC 2014

FBTB has just dropped one of the biggest bombshells for LEGO at San Diego Comic Con 2014. Ace has revealed that LEGO will be giving away the DC Comics Zur-En-Arrh Batman as one of their exclusive minifigures. Although there are no images at this time, the outfit will probably look similar to the one picture above. Zur-En-Arrh will probably be given away either Friday or Saturday and The Collector on the day that’s left over. This will probably be one of the most sought for minifigures this year at SDCC. Check out the details of the giveaway process here.

If you’re not familiar with Batman of Zur-En-Arrh, he was first introduced by France Herron as an alien named Tlano from the planet Zur-En-Arrh. Later on in Grant Morrison’s version, he was brought back as Bruce Wayne’s backup personality in case Batman was mindwiped or driven to insanity.

Update: Back in May, LEGO released an image (see below) promoting LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham. Batman is shown standing in front of different suits and also pictured was the Zur-En-Arrh outfit which could be the one that will be given out at SDCC. Thanks to Dave for the reminder.

LEGO Classic TV Series Batmobile Revealed for SDCC 2014

LEGO SDCC 2014 Classic Batmobile

Complex has revealed the exclusive LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes Classic TV series Batmobile that will be sold at San Diego Comic Con 2014. Since this year marks the 75th anniversary of Batman, LEGO has created this little beauty for SDCC and Batman fans will no doubt be wanting to get their hands on this little set. It has all the details of the ’66 Batmobile including the front part of the car and the tail fins as well. The only thing that missing is the Batman logo on the side of the car but we can’t expect everything little detail in this already cool little set. The Batmobile has 152 pieces and will be sold for $39.99 like the other exclusive sets. It also includes the Batman and Robin minifigures in their classic outfits as well, which unfortunately are the same ones from the Juniors sets. Thanks to Chris for the heads up.

Full LEGO Booth Details at San Diego Comic Con 2014

LEGO has sent out a press release giving all the details on what will be going on at the LEGO booth (#2829) at San Diego Comic Con 2014 from more exclusive reveals to statues that you can take pictures with. For the first time, attendees will have access to a free build area but this year, they can take their creations home. There are also some details on which exclusive minifigures will be given out on which days. If you aren’t able to attend SDCC 2014, you will have a chance to win the minifigures by following LEGO on Twitter. Read the the full press release below my summary.

LEGO Star Wars

The celebrate 15 years of LEGO Star Wars, LEGO will be showcasing every LEGO Star Wars minifigure ever created which is over 600 in total. There will also be a remote-controlled life-size model of LEGO Chopper from Star Wars Rebels. The press release also notes there will be an unveiling of a 2015 LEGO Star Wars set which I can pretty much say is the UCS Slave I (75060). Finally, the limited mini version of The Ghost will be for sale for $39.99

LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes

To celebrate the 75th anniversay of Batman, LEGO will have a life-size model of the Batcycle and sidecar from the classic TV series.

More Details of SDCC 2014 Exclusive LEGO Minifigure Giveaway Process

Ace over at FBTB has now confirmed a majority of the details on how LEGO will be giving away their exclusive minifigures at San Diego Comic Con 2014. We knew of some of the details a few days ago such as the staff using an iPad for the ticketing process and attendees entering once a day.

The giveaways start at 12:30pm in the Sails Pavilion. There will be multiple iPads stations so the you can choose which one you want to test your luck on. If you are a winner, you will be going to another line to claim whatever prize that day is for. If you’re not a winner, you can try again the next day. There will be about 1,750 of each minifigure given out each day which is a lot more than last year so your chances of winning are a lot higher. Children’s badges don’t have barcodes so you will need a parent to be there with them. Both the parent and child can enter too with the parent’s badge scanned twice.

After seeing these details, I’m even more satisfied with the changes from last year. Since there are 1,750 minifigures given away each day, everyone’s chances just got higher. People (scalpers) who put it on the aftermarket probably won’t be getting much for them and they’re probably be more affordable for people who can’t attend SDCC. So I guess all the changes is almost a win-win situation for everybody.


San Diego Comic Con 2014 LEGO DC Comic Book Image


LEGO Comic Artist Paul Lee has posted a few images of the exclusive DC Comics Super Heroes comic book that you can get from LEGO at San Diego Comic Con 2014. Paul is scheduled to be doing a signing at the LEGO Booth (#2829) on Saturday, July 26th at 5pm so you can get your copy signed by him as well along with writer Rachel Lareau.

As you can see, there are a number of DC Comics characters that aren’t official minifigures yet. As we reported before, there will again be four exclusive minifigures that will be given away this year. Three of them have already been revealed: The Collector, Unikitty, and Bard the Bowman. The last minifigure hasn’t been revealed at of this writing but it was mentioned that it will be a character from DC Comics. Could this minifigure be one of the characters shown above? We shall see in the next few days.

Note: Paul states, “I have had no advanced knowledge of the minfig exclusives for Comic-con. The depictions of characters and choices of characters were entirely based on personal preference and aesthetics.” Although the exclusive will be a DC character, it doesn’t mean that it will be based on Paul’s drawings.
