LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes SDCC 2016 Atom Minifigure Review

LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes SDCC 2016 Atom

At the first day of San Diego Comic Con 2016 this past Thursday, LEGO did their first exclusive minifigure giveaway with the LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes Atom. The paper backing is only a single flat sheet unlike last year where you could fold it up to show a scene. In the bottom left corner, you have some printing that signifies that this particular minifigure is from SDCC 2016. There is also the Legends of Tomorrow logo next to the SDCC logo.

As for the minifigure itself, Atom is very detailed throughout. The torso of the A.T.O.M. exosuit has printing the red and blue of the suit as well as some silver. The legs continue with the same type of printing. Atom has a double-sided head with a confident expression on one side and an angry expression on the other. There is also some printing on the head for the chinstrap and blue over the eyes for the visor. Finally, he has a blue helmet to complete his look.

It is very rare that a San Diego Comic Con exclusive minifigure have accessories but Atom also includes a 4×4 plate with four studs. The plate also includes a chipset printing with Palmer Technologies in the middle.

Overall, the SDCC 2016 LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes Atom is a very good looking minifigure and is highly detailed. The 4×4 plate was unexpected when it was first revealed but it is a nice addition. The only way to get this exclusive minifigure was to have atteneded San Diego … Continue

The LEGO Batman Movie SDCC 2016 Official Trailer Now Available

The LEGO Batman Movie

Earlier today at San Diego Comic Con, Warner Bros. had their panel and showed off all the upcoming movies they have on the slate including The LEGO Batman Movie. The official SDCC 2016 trailer of the movie is now available and it there’s all new footage to drool over, especially for all the potential sets that may come out next year.

The trailer also shows Michael Cera as Dick Grayson and him messing around with Batman’s other suits like El Murcielago, Glam Bat, and Raggae Man which turns out to be Robin’s suit of his choosing minus a couple of pieces here and there. There are rumors that there will be a minifigure series based on the movie so don’t be surprised if we see a couple of the suits in the trailer as actual minifigures.

The LEGO Batman Movie will be released in theaters February 2017.

First Look at LEGO Dimensions Fantastic Beasts Tina Fun Pack (71257)

LEGO Dimensions Fantastic Beasts Tina Fun Pack (71257)

I’m back from the first official day of San Diego Comic Con 2016 and today I want to focus on the LEGO Warner Bros. stuff, more importantly LEGO Dimensions. The LEGO Dimensions glass case of products were unusually small with only some of the Year 2 content being displayed in a badly reachable area. I literally had to sneak in to the WB line to take a picture of them because it wasn’t displayed in a public friendly place.

One thing we haven’t seen yet that was displayed was a first look at the LEGO Dimensions Fantastic Beasts Tina Fun Pack (71257). It contains 51 pieces and it includes the Tina Goldstein minifigure along with the Swooping Evil. Tina comes in her gray coat printing along with a gray gumdrop hat although she appears to wear a green one in the movie.

The Swooping Evil, according to Pottermore is a large, butterfly-like creature and the build does look pretty similar to the source material given the limited amount of pieces that comes with the set. There was no mentioning of pricing but I’m guessing it will retail for $11.99 like the other Fun Packs.

The other new set from the Year 2 wave was the Fantastic Beasts Story Pack (71253). As mentioned before, it comes with the Newt Scamander minifigure along with a brick-built Niffler as well as the entrance to the Magical Congress of the United States of America (MACUSA). We now also know the piece count of the set coming in at 261 … Continue

Two The LEGO Batman Movie Official Set Images Revealed

The LEGO Batman Movie The Batmobile (70905)

Earlier today, LEGO has published official images of two The LEGO Batman Movie sets which are The Batmobile (70905) and The Joker Notorious Lowrider (70906). We’ll see the two sets being displayed at San Diego Comic Con this weekend. Below is a little description of the two sets.

The Batmobile (70905) has 581 pieces and it includes minifigures of Batman, Robin, Man-Bat, and the Kabuki Twins. Batman has a new belt attachment piece while Robin wears some of the new green goggles which we saw before. Man-Bat looks like the same one we’ve in in a previous set while The Kabuki Twins are brand new. We’ll see how the assassins will play part in the movie later on. The Batmobile will retail for $59.99.

The Joker Notorious Lowrider (70906) has 433 pieces and will retail for $49.99. It is the one that we saw an image of yesterday with the character reveal and it includes minifigures of Batgirl, The Joker, and Harley Quinn. All three minifigures have new printing on them and the Lowrider is an interesting looking build as well.

LEGO Super Heroes BrickHeadz SDCC 2016 Boxes

LEGO BrickHeadz Superman & Wonder Woman (41490)

I’m finally back from a pretty rushed Preview Night at San Diego Comic Con 2016. I’ll over the other stuff that was happening at the LEGO Booth later on but I want to focus on the new upcoming LEGO BrickHeadz sets that are coming out in 2017. LEGO displayed the four convention exclusive sets including the boxes for them which shows some more details about them.

As you can see, the SDCC 2016 exclusive versions of the sets will have the label on front of the box and they are the higher quality slip cover versions. They also have the little stand with the #LEGOSDCC printed tile as well. The retail versions of the set won’t have these and will probably have a slightly different piece count.

Again, drawings to be able to purchase these at SDCC will be held each morning in the Pavilion Terrace.

Superman & Wonder Woman (41490) – 220 pieces
Batman & The Joker (41491) – 212 pieces
Iron Man & Captain America (41492) – 184 pieces
Black Panther & Dr. Strange (41493) – 173 pieces
