LEGO has been quite mum about this one, until now. We saw from last year that CW’s Rey Palmer (aka Atom) of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow was one of San Diego Comic Con’s exclusive swags, alongside Steve Roger’s Captain America. This time around, we have another character from Legends of Tomorrow that a few brick fans will be so fortunate enough to have. LEGO has shared via its Twitter account that Vixen will now be getting the exclusive LEGO SDCC treatment for this year’s SDCC.
For those of you who are not familiar with her character, Vixen (aka Amaya Jiwe) is a CW character and a former member of Justice Society of America played on screen by Maisie Richardson-Sellers. Hailing from Africa, Vixen is an expert in hand-to-hand combat, made even more deadly by the powerful Anansi Totem – a magically imbued necklace that allows her to summon or harness the life force of animals, giving her superhuman strength, speed, agility, and resistance to the elements.
The manner of having Vixen in her exclusive LEGO minifigure form will be basically the same as that from previous years. If you’re attending this year’s Comic Con, you must be at the Pavilion Terrace at 12:30PM and wait in line from July 20 to 23. This limited edition, SDCC exclusive minifig is expected to shoot up in value in the aftermarket for as much as $200 to $250. Even as of this writing, a couple of pre-auction listings on eBay are now posted.
If you’re unable to attend this year’s Comic Con, LEGO will still be running its usual online raffle via Twitter, so be sure to keep tabs with their social media accounts. Be sure to stay tuned with us for more LEGO SDCC updates only here at the Brick Show!
