London MCM Comic-Con 2019 (end of October) - any LEGO events/specials/exclusives there this year?

Hi, just wondering if there's any LEGO worth seeing or exclusives/hard to find there planned this year?

    Has there ever been anything of interest from a LEGO perspective (except maybe TTGames) at an MCM? 

    I used to go regularly but haven't been for quite some years because of the over crowding and reluctance to admit that they've oversold the event.

    I’ve never been, shame if there’s not much LEGO there, but isn’t the main reason I’m going anyway.

    All I can ever remember seeing is TTGames demos (depending on the timing) and some typical marketplace stuff. I vaguely remember when LEGO Batman 2 came out they had some of the Brick sculptures of the characters and a mural painted on the floor outside. 

    I could be wrong as its been a few years since I last went but I don't think LEGO have ever had an official presence there. 

    I know some Comic cons have added LEGO exhibits, but these tend to be voluntary AFOL displays and are more common in smaller conventions.

    I know MCM has become a general pop culture show but it started out as an Anime/Manga convention and a lot of that legacy was still quite strong to see last time I went if you knew about it.

    Indeed Edinburgh Comic Con in April has had AFOL displays for 3 years now and will have another in 2020. 2018 even had a Panel about LEGO Books!

    these weren't even provided by TLG or TTGames, it was normally the retailer Game doing the demoing!

    I know GAME often did but I've got a feeling LEGO Batman 2 and possibly LEGO Rockband weren't, could be wrong though. 

    My favourite freebie I managed from an MCM was a plastic Ocarina of Time from Nintendo when they were demoing Zelda OoT on the 3DS. For a freebie the quality was pretty good and it came with a song sheet for how to play a few of the songs from the game.
