With less than a week away from the annual San Diego Comic-Con starting on July 21, LEGO reveals just keep on pouring in. As we mentioned before, The LEGO Group seems to be giving more attention to its LEGO Superheroes line-up as revealed with their latest Mighty Micro sets, LEGO has now announced via their Facebook page a new collectible that will also make its way in this year’s SDCC.
According to LEGO’s Facebook page, these BrickHeadz versions of DC’s Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman and the Joker, including Marvel’s Doctor Strange, Black Panther, Captain America, and Iron Man will only be available during the SDCC, and with other sets to be offered later on next year. If you noticed, LEGO’s choice on choosing these eight brick-built superheroes is based primarily on this year’s most successful and highly anticipated films: Captain America: Civil War, Batman VS Superman, and the upcoming Doctor Strange and Suicide Squad films. If you’re raring to have your hands on this new LEGO offering, but will eventually not attend this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, then fret not. LEGO is running a contest where you can have a chance to win any of these LEGO Brickheadz SDCC exclusives by following them on Twitter @LEGO_Group or hashtag #LEGOSDCC.
As pointed out by Brickset, these Brickheadz looks very similar to what LEGO has offered in the past with its SDCC 2010 LEGO Star Wars CubeDude exclusives. Here’s a closer look at this initial BrickHeadz line, and the days in which they will be offered during the course of the Comic-Con. These limited- edition, and one-run only LEGO BrickHeadz building sets will retail at $40.00 and will be offered at the SDCC LEGO Booth.
Batman and Joker; July 21, Thursday
Doctor Strange and The Black Panther; July 22, Friday
Superman and Wonder Woman; July 23, Saturday
