With just three weeks to go before the largest comic fan convention on the planet kicks in, The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that this year’s San Diego Comic Con LEGO exclusive is none other than the LEGO BrickHeadz Marvel Spider-Man and Venom (41497). These chibi-sized versions of the most popular names in comic book fandom have been quite popular recently. From Star Wars to Disney’s Inside Out, virtually all of your favorite characters can be given the LEGO BrickHeadz treatment.
Last 2016’s SDCC saw the debut of these fun, brick-built character sets that pay tribute to some of the icons of the comic book industry, including Superman & Wonder Woman (41490), Batman & Joker (41491), Iron Man & Captain America (41492), and Black Panther & Doctor Strange (41493). In continuing with the trend, LEGO will once more offer these exclusive BrickHeadz collectibles starting with our friendly neighborhood web-slinger and the alien symbiote Venom. Check out these images courtesy of THR.
Interestingly, the set number for this upcoming set (41497) suggests that this may just be the fourth in a series of SDCC 2017 LEGO Brick Headz that will be offered. We just have to wait and see if the gaps for set nos. 41494 to 41496 will also be revealed in connection to this year’s San Diego Comic Con.
Same as before, not all SDCC attendees may be able to avail of these highly popular exclusives. A lottery system will be set in place to determine who is eligible to purchase the 144-piece set retailing at $40 each from July 19 to 23, as THR reports.
Because the demand for exclusive Lego items has skyrocketed over the past few years (these items are only available for purchase on the Con), the company has instituted a lottery system. Attendees must first visit the Pavilion Terrace to participate in a random drawing to qualify to buy beginning as early as 6 a.m. Tickets to purchase must be redeemed on the same day or the purchase is forfeited.
Well, I think it’s about time that Spidey and Venom gets the LEGO BrickHeadz treatment. So what do you say about these latest SDCC 2017 LEGO exclusives?
