San Diego Comic-Con 2019 has now come to a close, and for those who didn’t get a chance to see what LEGO has in store at their massive booth, our friends from Beyond the Brick was kind enough to share their first-hand account of the different happenings at the LEGO Booth at SDCC 2019. Check out their video below.
Aside from the life-sized brick-built statues such as the LEGO DC Batman, Avengers: Endgame Iron Man and the new Star Wars Sith Trooper that welcomed visitors, there are plenty of hands-on activities that kept enthusiasts glued to the LEGO brick. One of these is the usual meet and greet with some of LEGO’s top-notch of designers including Justin Ramsden, the person behind the LEGO Stranger Things The Upside Down (75810) set. LEGO fans and comic-con attendees may have their Stranger Things sets and even their LEGO SDCC minifigs such as the LEGO Strangers Things Barb exclusive minifigure.
There is also the LEGO Comic Creation Station where you can create a minifigure version of yourself and be the star of your own comic book. You just have to answer a series of questions that determines the personality and looks of your minifigure avatar, and choose your own comic book theme. After a couple of hours, you can claim your own personalized comic book to bring home as a cool LEGO SDCC souvenir.
Younger LEGO fans also had a blast at the LEGO Booth making their very own minifigure adventures. After creating their physical minifigures at the building stations, these young builders can place their customized minifigs to any of the numerous LEGO Brick Boxes for a fun minifigure scene and photo ops. Designed by Tristan Cain and other top-notch LEGO builders, these minifig scaled backdrops are based on several of LEGO’s licensed themes and other abstract concepts.
There is also a handful of LEGO sets that were put on sale at the LEGO Booth which includes fan favorites such as the LEGO Jurassic Park: T.rex Rampage (75936), the LEGO Star Wars Droid Commander (75253), and the LEGO Star Wars Tantive IV (75244) just to name a few. On display are also a couple of soon to be released LEGO Star Wars sets, the LEGO Marvel Avengers Hulk Helicopter Drop (76144), and other LEGO SDCC 2019 exclusives such as Captain Marvel and the Asis (77902), The Dark Knight of Gotham City (77903), and LEGO Star Wars Sith Trooper Bust (77901). There was a bit of confusion when the LEGO Ideas Treehouse (21318) was accidentally placed on sale in spite of the embargo that was currently in effect. Needless to say, the set was immediately pulled out but not without any eagle-eyed LEGO fan making the first purchase.
