Comic-Con 2016

Has anything been leaked about Lego's plan for this year's Comic-Con? I got tickets during the pre-registration for all 4 days, so I'm excited! Did anyone else get tickets?

    If there's a MARVEL minifigure & anyone can get an extra, I'll pay double what you paid to get it... :)

    Is this true for all previous Comicon figures too? I can get you any you want if it is :)

    Don't forget that they will have paid at the very least travel and admission price to get it...could be a far worse deal than you think ;-)

    #facepalm Oh goodness, I do apologise for my husbands antics. Sometimes it's hard to see he's being a sarcastic prick over the internet. He's referring to the fact that double of $0 is still 0. But if anyone can offer a reasonable price he would prefer to buy from someone here over dealing with e-bay.

    To be honest, if a ComCon newbie had a agreed to that deal, I wouldn't have made them stick to it, a jokes a joke, but that would just be cruel. :)

    Mando, we usually see what the exclusives are a week or two ahead of SDCC.  We got a VERY LONG wait.  

    Congrats on getting passes!!  Such a tough get every year.  Now the next step...good luck getting a hotel. ;)

    @Mandalorian_Builder if you get any of the minibuilds(if they have any) or the sets and want to sell any I'm interested. Also interested in the figures, but they are usually too much for me to justify.
  • AanchirAanchir United StatesMember Posts: 2,674
    I did NYCC for one day in 2014 (in order to attend the LEGO Group's Bionicle reveal), and I can honestly say I would probably not have the stamina to attend an event that size for four days! If there are any Bionicle, Ninjago, or Nexo Knights exclusives, I might end up buying them on eBay after the fact, depending on their price and whether the designs interest me. But it's a LONG time before we find out any news about what exclusives there might be. We're not even to Toy Fair yet!

    I got all excited seeing this thread, thinking 'already?'. Ah well, guess it'll be another 6 months until there's some news. time to start saving!

    I really hate when ppl try to include travel, stay, and admission into the cost of CC exclusives.

    I went about 10 years ago, before I came out of my dark ages unfortunately, and got a four day pass the Sunday before it started. It meant I had to spend 2 1/2 days on a bus from Washington DC, but it was worth it.

    Ahh, the good old days!

    I can't imagine my wife being in this forum; she already rolls her eyes at me when I talk about the forum.
    She seemed pretty thrilled about PitfallCon...

    I got annoyed by him going on about what was on the forum, but only giving me half details before switching to something else. The joys of living with someone who has ADHD, So I did the only logical thing and joined up myself... And now I'm doing most of the big purchases -.- I blame you all with your infectious enthusiasm...

    ADHD is great, so what are your opinions on the Doctor Who set, think we'll see a Daredevil set, do we know what the ComCon exclusives are yet? Bored now...

    Why do people think I have ADHD?

    Maybe they will have daredevil and Jessica jones for comic con to go with the TV shows.  Would be nice but I'd be jealous I wouldn't be able to get it.

    I'm hoping if we're getting a Ghost Rider set, that a retail release Daredevil set is in the pipeline. I'd like to see TLG start doing sets that have the previously released SDCC MARVEL minifigures, even if they are slightly different, I have Jean Grey (Phoenix), Taneleer Tivan (the Collector) & the Sam Wilson Captain America, but I think it's a shame there hasn't been a set with these characters. Especially Taneleer, a small set with some of his collection would have been awesome for an extra GotG set.

  • SumoLegoSumoLego New YorkMember Posts: 10,901
    There's always a possibility with the upcoming GotG and the Infinity War.  Tivan still has the Aether and the Adam Warlock cocoon.

    It would certainly make the minifigure less exclusive, but who cares?!  (Not sarcasm.)

    @SumoLego, might want to rewatch GotG, the cocoon is empty in the end credits scene with Howard...

    They should wait until the Defenders comes out. Daredevil,  Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, Hellcat (Patsy Walker aka Trish). Also Howard the Duck, Ghost Rider and Doctor Strange were members.

    @Bosstone100, you left out Namor, Hulk & the Silver Surfer... :)

  • Bosstone100Bosstone100 USAMember Posts: 1,372
    @VorpalRyu - I left them out on purpose actually. We've seen the Hulk so he won't be in there plus the massive CGI expense. I'm honestly not sure where Silver Surfer fits in because of his association with the Fantastic Four. And finally two reasons for excluding Namor. First, I think there is some murky rights issues and second, I think with his ability to swim and to fly, he's better suited for the big screen again considering the CGI expense.

    Probably won't hear anything about it til early July.  They're always pretty late.

    standing in the hot sun for that SDCC Lego Line for a 50/50 CHANCE of acquiring a fig is what's making the minifig value so high...

    but be careful when buying this year...they all might just show up in sets later on...

    There have been some close reprints like black superman and dark knight turning grey and the closet being green arrow (even though sdcc green arrow's torso, leg and face print are still exclusive) In the last 2 years (2014, 2015) lego has put a great effort into character decision that they dont have to produce in a set (the collector might be touch and go due to the upcoming films but lego might still keep him exclusive and even he is produced it'll be completely different print) but you'll never see arsenal, zur en arrh or sam wilson captain america in sets and its safe the say that the 2016 figures will be carefully picked keeping in mind that they don't want to screw up on character decisions like green arrow 2013. I'd say future comic con figures probably will never see the inside of a set.
