Much has been revealed about The LEGO Ninjago Movie during this year’s Comic-Con and just before we hit the theaters next month, it seems that LEGO still has some surprises tucked under its sleeve. Our friends over at Promobricks stumbled upon a find over at eBay and as it seems, we will not be getting one, but two minifigure polybag versions of the Green Ninja himself, Lloyd Garmadon. If you recall back in June, we first stumbled upon Lloyd’s promotional minifigure – the Kendo Lloyd (30608) polybag – as a promotional offering that comes with an unlock code to be used in the film’s accompanying video game.
As it turns out, Lloyd will probably have another minifigure promotional as images of this new polybag appears on eBay. Check out the images below.
One will notice right away that this polybag version of Lloyd sports a hood which is basically the same as that found in the film’s CMF tie-up, a tasseled sword similar to what he is wielding in the Green Ninja Mech Dragon (70612) set, and a unique, never-before-seen torso print. The torso is quite different from Lloyd’s other minifigure iteration where he is seen wearing a sweater on top of his ninja garb. This is one minifigure that will surely be interesting to collect.
In related news, Warner Bros. Interactive has shared several exciting info regarding the film’s tie-up video of the same title. We now get to see some of the combat styles and slick moves that our Ninjago heroes have acquired. They’ve also released several in-game screenshots that highlights the game’s highly-detailed and immersive environment. With styles and techniques that takes its cue from nature, these abilities are also available to players during the game.
Lastly, as of this writing, we now have confirmation that the Kendo Lloyd (30608) polybag now comes as a GameStop pre-order exclusive while supplies last.
We’re not sure if this polybag promotional is specific only to GameStop, and we hope that this will be made available to other retailers as well. The LEGO Ninjago Movie and The LEGO Ninjago Movie Video Game will both be released in the US on September 22.

SDCC 2017 has been concluded, but the reveals that LEGO shared with fans and attendees still lingers on. I intend to do a recap any time soon about all the things related to LEGO during this year’s San Diego Comic Con, to somehow round-up all these things, and to make sense out of the information overload.
But before that, here’s another tidbit of info that Warner Bros. Interactive and TT Games have shared during Comic-Con. We already had a look at some of the new Marvel superheroes that will be added to the game’s roster of more than 200+ playable characters. This time, we now have our second official trailer of the LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2 video game that puts the spotlight on the game’s main antagonist, Kang the Conqueror. We also get a closer look at the different Marvel worlds as Kang brings them all together in an epic collision of inter-dimensional proportions in the surreal world of Chronopolis.
If the first trailer of LMSH2 introduces us to some of the characters that will grace the long-awaited sequel, this follow-up shows us more about Kang and the time-warping, open-hub world of Chronopolis. In this uber extreme mashup of Marvel worlds, we get to see familiar places such as Ancient Egypt, New York City 2099, Wakanda, Xandar, Knowhere, and many other comic book locations.
Here’s the official press release of the latest LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2 trailer released as a fitting conclusion for this year’s SDCC.
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 Spotlights Kang the Conqueror in NEW SDCC Trailer
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment today released a NEW trailer for LEGO® Marvel Super Heroes 2 featuring Kang the Conqueror, a time-travelling Super Villain who has stolen numerous cities from across time and space to form the expansive Open Hub World of Chronopolis. First revealed at Comic-Con International: San Diego, the video spotlights Kang in his ultimate quest to take over the universe, as well as the many Marvel locations that make up Chronopolis, including Ancient Egypt, New York City in 2099, Wakanda, Xandar and many other Marvel settings.
At Comic-Con, TT Games also revealed a brand new character created in tandem with Marvel Games, fusing together the ever popular Carnage and Venom to form a new Marvel Super Villain called Carnom, a character who has never existed in the Marvel Universe before and is completely unique to LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2. Along with Carnom, TT Games announced a slew of other characters coming to the game, including Howard the Duck and his Iron Duck variant, who will be voiced by Kinda Funny’s Greg Miller, Gwenpool, the fan-favorite amalgam of Gwen Stacy and Deadpool, Vulture, from the “Spider-Man: Homecoming” film, Cosmo the Spacedog,Doctor Octopus, Forbush Man, Greenskyn Smashtroll and Throg. These Super Heroes and Super Villains will join the recently revealed Medusa and Lockjaw of the Inhumans, all playable in LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2.
LEGO® Marvel Super Heroes 2 is an all-new, epic adventure and sequel to the smash hit, LEGO® Marvel Super Heroes. This original branching storyline, co-written by award-winning comics writer Kurt Busiek, transports players into a cosmic battle across a myriad of Marvel locations ripped from time and space into the incredible Open Hub World of Chronopolis. Packed with signature LEGO® humour for fans of all ages, gamers will go head-to-head with the time-travelling Kang the Conqueror in this fun-filled journey spanning the Marvel Universe.
LEGO® Marvel Super Heroes 2 will be available starting November 17, 2017 for PlayStation® 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch™ and PC.
Day 3 of this year’s San Diego Comic Con was a show-stopper for LEGO and Marvel fans. During the LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2: Meet the Talent Behind the Video Game panel, the powerhouse team of Arthur Parsons (Head of Design for TT Games), Bill Rosemann (Executive Creative Director of Marvel Games), Justin Ramsden (LEGO Designer), Kurt Busiek (Comic Book Writer for Avengers Forever), and Dan Veesenmeyer (Comic Content Artist, and artist for LEGO Marvel’s Avengers) were all present to give SDCC attendees a glimpse on the additional characters that will grace the sequel to the highly popular video game, plus tons of other interesting info about the game.
According to The Brick Fan, an exclusive, never-before-seen LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2 trailer was shown during the panel, and several new characters and vehicles from the Marvel comic books were introduced. Some of these new characters were the Vulture from Spider-Man: Homecoming, Doctor Octopus, Cosmo, Greenskyn Smashtroll, Throg, and Forbush Man. Also presented to the audience were previously revealed characters of Howard the Duck, Iron Duck and Gwenpool.
As it seems, our LEGO superheroes will also be capable of using their signature vehicles as seen in the comics and on the big screen. Examples of these are the Black Panther Jet, Crossbones’ Truck, and Star Lord’s Mini Ravage Jet.
What is also interesting is the fact that players can use several versions of the same comic book character during game play. For example, you can play as Spider-Man in his Homemade Suit version as seen in Spider-Man: Homecoming, while your friend plays as Spiderman Noir or Spiderman 2099. The legendary Stan Lee will also make a comeback in LMSH2, where you will have a chance to save him and, if you are successful in your mission, be rewarded along the way. The possibilities are endless, especially if you have more than 200 playable Marvel characters at your disposal. These 200+ characters are all available to players as they progress through the game, regardless of what type of console you are using. As such, WB Games and TT Games have no plans of offering any console-specific character packs which is fair for all gamers and fans of the franchise.
During the panel discussions and Q&A, Parsons also hinted at the possibility of Moon Knight making his way to LMSH2 as a playable character, and the inclusion of Mysterio going head-on against the Sinister Six. There was also some hints about the in-game mechanics (96 in all) and several abilities of some of the game’s characters. One example is Kamala Khan’s ability of shrinking down to size, and pass through different mazes.
Finally, Arthur Parsons also mentioned that a new LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2 trailer will be aired likely on Monday. He reiterated this announcement via his official Twitter account.
For those that are asking, the new @LEGOMarvelGame trailer will likely be released to you all on Monday…
In closing, attendees were treated with ticketed parting gifts of the foil comic print of Kang Dynasty, and the LEGO Marvel Superheroes The Avengers Quinjet (30304) polybag which was quite rare when it was introduced in 2015. An in-game, LEGOlized digital version of the Kang Dynasty comic book cover, and other similar classic covers will all be available in LMSH2 via collectable minikits.
We’ll keep an eye on the latest trailer of LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2 when it hits the web on Monday. In the meantime, you may now pre-order your copy of this highly anticipated LEGO video game via Amazon. A Deluxe Edition is also available that comes with a Season Pass, the Classic GOTG Character Pack, and an exclusive Giant-Man minifigure. The game is expected to be released to the general public on November 14.
Thanks again to The Brick Fan for giving us an inside look on the happenings during this year’s SDCC.
More news from the San Diego Comic Con 2017! One of the panels (Marvel Games) that launched earlier today highlights the exciting game sequel, LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2. With the promise of a bigger roster of playable Marvel superheroes rendered in their LEGO minifigure form, the video game sequel features an entirely different take on the Marvel universe where our favorite superheroes are pressed for time to foil the plans of the nefarious super villain, Kang the Conqueror.
After the reveal of Medusa and Homemade Suit Spider-Man a few days ago at E3 and Disney 23 respectively, we now have confirmation that 3 playable Marvel comic book characters will be available as part of LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2’s ever-growing list of LEGO superhero characters.
We have a powerful fusion between two of the most abominable creatures in the Marvel universe: Carnage and Venom. Known as Carnom, the bigfig character is a mashup of these two unholy creatures and is slated to spring into action together with Spider-Man and Spider-Gwen.
Next, we have the return of our action-packed, comedic feathered friend, Howard the Duck. Other than an exclusive SDCC minifigure dedicated in the character of Deadpool Duck, Howard the Duck will also be a huge character in the digital realm where he is expected to play a big role in the game’s storyline. It was also revealed that he can also transform into Iron Duck – I just don’t know exactly how Tony Stark ended up making a suit for him.
It was also mentioned that Goblin 2099 will also be a playable character in LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2, so it will be kind of interesting to see how this will play out.
An all-new trailer is expected to be shown on Friday, so we’ll be on a look-out for more LEGO Marvel characters that might be revealed. LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2 is now available for pre-order, with a Deluxe Edition that comes with a Season Pass, the Classic GOTG Character Pack, and an exclusive Giant-Man minifigure. The game is expected to be released to the general public on November 14.
Thanks to The Brick Fanfor sharing this news straight from SDCC 2017.
