After the reveal of this year’s first LEGO SDCC exclusive minifigure in the character of Sheriff Deadpool, we now 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.
We’re literally counting the remaining days before the 2018 San Diego Comic Con kicks off. For those who are lucky to be going there among the LEGO fandom, there are already a whole lot of awesome things in store. From an advance screening of LEGO DC Super Heroes: Aquaman – Rage of Atlantis, to a panel for LEGO Ninjago, and one for the LEGO DC Super Villains game, it’s all there. But more is still in store. Following in the heels of the production team and voice talent for LEGO Ninjago showing up in their panel, the team for Unikitty! is also getting a Q&A portion. Unlike with Ninjago though, Unikitty! is nebulous on who among the show-runners and cast they’ll have appearing for the Q&A.
LEGO Ninjago has always made its presence known at San Diego Comic Cons and this year is no less different. Almost like an annual tradition, the LEGO Ninjago panel is expected to be a part of SDCC 2018’s programming in which LEGO fans can likewise enjoy.
LEGO builders in the UK have had the pleasure of having a LEGO-themed reality TV show in the comfort of their homes. Entitled as LEGO Masters, the show is produced by Tuesday’s Child and airing on Channel 4 since its 2017 launch. It’s proven popular enough that two overseas versions are now on their way.
It looks like the LEGO Store Calendar for the month of August 2018 has been sent out early, and eventually, new polybag has been revealed – the LEGO Unikitty Castle Room (5005239). This is the second polybag offering that LEGO has announced following the reveal of the Unikitty Roller Coaster Wagon (30406) which will launch on August 1 together with the rest of the LEGO Unikitty sets featuring the ever so positive local resident of Cloud Cuckoo Land.
