LEGO Wonder Woman Life-Size Statue Revealed for SDCC 2016

LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes SDCC 2016 Wonder Woman

The Wall Street Journal has revealed another LEGO brick-built statue that will be displayed at San Diego Comic Con 2016 with a life-size version of Wonder Woman. The statue stands over 6’1″ and it contains 22,736 pieces and weighs 138 pounds. It took 99 hours to design and 218 hours to build it from bottom to top. It will be displayed on the outer rim of the LEGO booth (2829) where attendees are able to take pictures of it. It’s not that surprising that this character was chosen to become a statue considering that it is Wonder Woman’s 75th anniversary and DC will be celebrating it throughout the convention.

The statue will be one of many that will be displayed at the LEGO booth at SDCC which also includes LEGO Ninjago Jay. Check out the video below of a time-lapse build of the Wonder Woman statue.

The LEGO Batman Movie

Warner Bros. has finally confirmed their San Diego Comic Con 2016 Saturday panel in Hall H which will be showing off a lot of upcoming movies including The LEGO Batman Movie. During the panel, Director Chris McKay and Will Arnett will be present to give a sneak peek of the movie. There will most likely be some new unseen footage which will probably not be made public until it gets closer to the movie release date of February 10, 2017 unless it leaks online somehow.

Other Saturday activities on the convention floor will include The LEGO Batman Movie selfie booth at the Warner Bros. booth (4545).

Over in the LEGO Booth (2829), there will be The LEGO Batman Movie talent signings as well as a selfie booth. There will also be the usual building activities where attendees can help build life-size models of LEGO Batman, Batgirl, and the Joker from The LEGO Batman movie.


LEGO Panels at San Diego Comic Con 2016

The San Diego Comic Con 2016 schedules are out and surprisingly, there aren’t that many LEGO panels this year as compared to last year. I scanned the schedules and I’ve only found there are three and they are all on Sunday.

The first panel revolves around LEGO Dimensions and the new content that will be coming out in a few months.

The second one is for LEGO Ninjago and it will be discussing the latest season and also talk about the development of the sets as well as some new stories for Ninjago.

The final panel is for LEGO Nexo Knights and they will discuss the characters and the development of the TV series as well as the product design process of the sets.

LEGO Illustrator Dan Veesenmeyer at San Diego Comic Con 2016

LEGO news has been fairly quiet so far for San Diego Comic Con 2016 but here’s something that might be of interest to you if you’re attending. LEGO illustrator Dan Veesenmeyer will be attending the event in a couple of weeks and can be found at Artist Alley #EE-21. If that name sounds familiar, you’ve probably seen his work in the LEGO Club Magazines, LEGO Marvel’s Avengers video game, as well as an upcoming book for kids called How to Draw LEGO Ninjago.

Dan will be selling prints and doing commissions (first come, first served) for SDCC attendee throughout the weekend. The prints will start at $10 each and are signed and numbered while inked LEGO minifigure sketches start at $40. Kids will also be able to get free head sketches during the event. So if you have some time, swing by Dan’s booth and check out what he has to offer.
