When it comes to San Diego Comic-Con exclusives, everything is awesome when it comes to LEGO’s choices the last several years. The few fortunate souls that get their hands on Lego SDCC exclusives become owners of some of the priciest prizes of all. These exclusives are incredibly difficult to get their hands on and keep their value high.
Last year, you needed a winning ticket in order to purchase LEGO’s exclusives. LEGO will once again be distributing free mini-figures upstairs on the Pavilion Terrace, beginning at 12:30PM daily. There’s a limit of one drawing per person per day. Here’s this year’s known schedule:
- Thursday, July 21 – DC’s Legends of Tomorrow Atom
- Friday, July 22 – Hydra Captain America
- Saturday, July 23 – DC’s Legends of Tomorrow Atom
- Sunday, July 24 – Hydra Captain America
For their other exclusives, while purchase and fulfillment of exclusive sets will take place in LEGO Booth #2829, attendees must first visit the Pavilion Terrace to participate in a random drawing to qualify to buy, beginning as early as 7AM daily. Tickets to purchase must be redeemed on the same day or purchase is forfeited.
Here’s what’s awesome this year from LEGO:

The second of LEGO’s two San Diego Comic-Con exclusive minifigs this year is none other than DC’s Legends of Tomorrow‘s Atom (aka Ray Palmer). The figure will be given away on Thursday and Saturday of Comic-Con, beginning at 12:30PM on the Pavilion Terrace upstairs of the convention center. The minifig comes with a removable helmet and a Palmer Tech baseplate.

Finally, some more LEGO Comic-Con news!

The sets feature DC and Marvel heroes, and will be available one set per day (schedule below). You’ll need to participate in a random drawing in the Pavilion Terrace around 7AM daily to be able to purchase later in the day at the LEGO booth.
They’ll retail for $40 per two-pack.
