Attending New York Comic Con? The LEGO booth will be alive with giveaways and activities. Every day of the convention, attendees with 4-day, 3-day, or Single Day Fan badges will be eligible to enter a drawing for a Batgirl minidoll at the back of Hall 1E at 12:30pm. One drawing per person per day and the prize will be awarded onsite. This sounds very much like the same process used for the San Diego Comic Con giveaways. Please note the specificity of the badge type; press, exhibitor, professional, and any other non-Fan badge types will most likely not be eligible for the giveaway. I could be wrong but those are the same restrictions that were in effect for their giveaways at San Diego Comic Con.
If you are not attending the show, you will still have a chance to win the giveaway via twitter by following @LEGO_Group and the hashtag #LEGONYCC.
In addition to the Batgirl minidoll giveaway, the LEGO booth will showcase two life-sized models of Supergirl and Harley Quinn and a triptych mosaic of Bumblebee, Wonder Woman, and Batgirl.
The official press release is below.
