After the reveal of this year’s first LEGO SDCC exclusive minifigure in the character of Sheriff Deadpool, we now have our second one coming from DC Comics, or more specifically from CW’s rendition of him. Revealed via Twitter, the LEGO DC Black Lightning minifigure features the television version of the retired superhero Jefferson Pierce who has the ability to harness and manipulate electricity at will. This is the first time ever that Black Lightning is in LEGO minifigure form, though he is not the first CW character to be given the honor of having the said LEGO SDCC tribute. Starting 2015, we have the characters of Arsenal, Atom in 2016, and Vixen from last year given the SDCC exclusive LEGO treatment.
True to form, Black Lightning’s minifigure comes with finely detailed printing against a black background. The level of detail on the head piece is also spot on, with emphasis on his blue goggles that goes very well with the blue and yellow streaks of lightning on his torso.
This SDCC exclusive, LEGO DC Black Lightning minifigure will be available for convention attendees via a lottery system, on July 20 from 10AM to 12NN, while Sheriff Deadpool will be on Saturday, July 21 also during the same time. This leaves us with the last minifigure reveal coming from the LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part. This minifig is slated to be available on the last day of the comic-con, July 22, and will be revealed anytime soon tomorrow or on Saturday.
