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.
New this year, LEGO will be utilizing the new San Diego Comic-Con Online Exclusives Portal System.
Here’s what’s awesome this year from LEGO:
[UPDATE July 12]
LEGO’s final San Diego Comic-Con exclusive minifigure is the Apocalypseburg Unikitty from The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part. And best of all, she comes with two faces, so you can change out her mood depending on how much rage you (or she) is feeling: Rage Kitty and Angry Kitty expressions. In order to get your hands on her, you’ll need to win Comic-Con International’s Online Exclusives Portal lottery, and then you can pick it up on Sunday, July 22. You can find more information on SYFY Wire.
[UPDATE July 11]
TV Insider has the details on LEGO’s DC San Diego Comic-Con exclusive – a LEGO DC minifigure of Black Lightning. The minifig is a take on the character from the CW’s iteration of him, and in order to get your hands on this free item, you’ll need to win the Exclusives Portal lottery for Friday, July 20. There will be redemption times at 9:30AM, 11:30AM, 1:30PM, and 3:30PM.
