San Diego Comic-Con 2019 is now set, and the throngs of this year’s SDCC attendees may now have a chance to grab one of its exclusives. As revealed today via SDCC’s blog site and Yahoo! Entertainment, we now have this year’s SDCC LEGO exclusive which is the Captain Marvel and the ASIS (77902) building set.
Like other SDCC exclusives from last year, LEGO will be adopting the SDCC Online Exclusives Portal System via lottery in order to determine who is eligible to purchase this set. I guess LEGO event exclusives are here to stay despite LEGO’s efforts some sets available in all regions.
The Captain Marvel and the ASIS (77902) set comes in at 271 pieces and is expected to retail for $45. It features a new minifigure iteration of Captain Marvel herself, a new minifig of Carol Danver’s former flying partner and ace pilot Monica Rambeau, and Goose going Flerken-crazy. The central part of the build is Captain Marvel’s signature jet – the Asis. The box art also sports Captain Marvel, drawn over as a stylized comic book cover. Similar to last year’s LEGO SDCC exclusives, we can somehow expect that LEGO will be releasing the building instructions for this set, though the real catch here is the new minifigs of Captain Marvel and Monica Rambeau. LEGO has only released three non-exclusive sets featuring Captain Marvel: Avenjet Space Mission (76049) from 2016, and the more recent Captain Marvel and the Skrull Attack (76127) and Avengers Compound Battle (76131) sets from Avengers Endgame.
We can also expect more SDCC 2019 LEGO exclusives to be revealed anytime soon, so be sure to turn on your notifications for the latest LEGO news and updates here on The Brick Show.
