Last week, we joined in the guessing game of figuring out what is this year’s exclusive San Diego Comic-Con LEGO minifigure. We already have a hint from fan forums and other LEGO enthusiasts that the two most likely candidates are DC Comic’s Atom as he is seen from the CW Network, and Steve Rogers in his latest Captain America costume and shield. The latter took its inspiration from Marvel Comic’s ‘shocking’ new take on the character of the most revered American super soldier who turns out to be a HYDRA double-agent operative. SPOILER ALERT: If you haven’t read the comics yet, I highly recommend that you do so before diving into the details of these exclusive minifigures. We also reported that a handful of LEGO minifigure knockoffs have been circulating around eBay claiming to be the Atom and Captain America HYDRA minifigs, and we’re glad that the real thing is far from how these bootlegs look like.
Now the guessing game has ‘officially’ ended with LEGO revealing one of the two minifigures that it will offer as San Diego Comic-Con exclusives. Over it social media channels, namely on Facebook and Twitter, LEGO announced (and confirmed) that Steve Roger’s Captain America is this year’s SDCC exclusive. Take a look.
We have no details yet on the exact time or schedule when this exclusive minifig will be given away, but The Brick Fan reports that there will be a minifigure given away for each day of the SDCC specifically at the Pavilion Terrace at 12:30PM. The good thing is that LEGO assured fans who cannot attend the San Diego Comic-Con that they still have a chance of owning this Steve Rogers Captain America minifig by following them at Twitter via #LEGOSDCC.
As of now, we haven’t heard any confirmation from LEGO regarding their LEGO Atom minifigure SDCC exclusive. We’ll keep you posted as new info comes in, so be sure to stay tuned here at the Brick Show!
