[SDCC] A LEGO Nerd’s Choice of Panels – Thursday

Hello, Comic Con attendees! Like last year, I’ve compiled a list of panels that I think might interest you, fans of LEGO licensed themes! So if you’re looking for things to do and see that doesn’t involve a line to get some exclusive toy, take a peek below. I know I will be trying my best to go to some of these. I’ll be posting daily so that you don’t have to keep searching back for the schedule. Just check the site each morning and I hope to see some of you there.

Toy Story That Time Forgot
11:15am Room 6A
Calling all Toy Story fans! ABC and Disney•Pixar present an exclusive first look at the upcoming holiday special, Toy Story That Time Forgot. Executive producer Galyn Susman (Toy Story OF TERROR!), director Steve Purcell (Brave), and head of story Derek Thompson (WALL•E) give you an exclusive inside look at the sketches, storyboards, and concepts that went into the making of this Disney•Pixar special!

The Heroes of Star Wars Rebels
6:00pm Room 6BCF
The almost 20-year stretch of Star Wars history between Episodes III and IV is a dark time in the galaxy that has never before been explored on screen. The evil Galactic Empire has tightened its grip and only a select few are brave enough to stand against tyranny and ignite a rebellion. Join Star Wars Rebels executive producers Dave Filoni and Simon Kinberg as well as series stars Freddie Prinze, Jr., Vanessa Marshall, Steve Blum, Tiya Sircar, and Taylor Gray for an exclusive preview of what’s to come this Fall on Disney XD in this eagerly awaited television series from Lucasfilm Animation.

The Definitive History of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles – A Look Under the Shell
8:15pm Room 6DE
In celebration of the new documentary film, Turtle Power: The Definitive History of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, co-creator Kevin Eastman will lead this fascinating panel including Randall Lobb (writer/director), Isaac Elliott-Fisher (executive producer), Mark Hussey (executive producer), and Galen Walker (executive producer), taking fans behind-the-scenes and beneath the streets into the incredible 30-year journey and reveal the real origin story of four of pop culture’s most enduring heroes. Featuring clips from the documentary, followed by a Q&A discussion, fans will get to see how this so-called “happy accident” defied every naysayer to become one of the most popular and beloved franchises in the world.

New Pixar TV Special Toy Story of Terror on ABC 10/16

There is a new Toy Story special debuting next week at 8pm (7pm Central) Wednesday October 16, on ABC. From director Angus MacLane, Toy Story of Terror is Pixar’s first television production. The synopsis may seem a tad familiar if you’re at all a fan of horror movies, but count on Pixar to add their sense of humor to the mix. It’s a shame it’s only slotted for 30 minutes, which means about 22 minutes of actual screen time.

What starts out as a fun road trip for the Toy Story gang takes an unexpected turn for the worse when the trip detours to a roadside motel. After one of the toys goes missing, the others find themselves caught up in a mysterious sequence of events that must be solved before they all suffer the same fate in this Toy Story OF TERROR!

LEGO Darth Tater

LEGO Darth Tater

Trying to get caught up on my “To Do” list and this great build by Bruce Lowell has sat on top since I got sidetracked last week. I’m a huge fan of the geeksploitation Potato Heads and the Boba Fett version is the star in my tater collection (though Optimash Prime is a close second). I’m sure some see them as a blight on the face of a classic toy and feel these versions trample all over their precious childhood memories, so for those people… enjoy.

FBTB Draft Five: Last Call for Pizza Planet

Registration officially closes at midnight PST tonight for the 5th FBTB Parts Draft. There are only a couple spots left to fill in this forum topic.


Check out the set on Brickset here, or browse the inventory on Bricklink

If at the end of today we only have 8 participants, that’s the number of sets I’ll sort to keep it the split lots even. Anyone who decides to join after the sets are sorted will be added to the end of the list, since everyone else will have already paid and decided the draft order.

FBTB Parts Draft Five: Pizza Planet Truck Rescue

The next FBTB Parts Draft will take place on Saturday February 18th at 11 am PST.

We’ll be drafting 10 copies of Toy Story set 9598 Pizza Planet Truck Rescue for $18.50 a pop, more than 50% off MSRP! (shipping charges will be calculated later for each participant.) Our very own Don Solo reviewed it on the site here a year ago, and had high praises for it.

You can see the inventory for this set on Bricklink.

The draft will follow the same rules as the last couple drafts, since we seem to have finally streamlined the process enough.

Draft registration will commence on Monday February 6th at 12 pm PST, which you can do in in this dedicated forum topic by simply posting “PIZZA!” Feel free to post any and all questions or comments in the thread; however, anyone posting “PIZZA!” before the clock hits noon on February 6th will be banned from participating. I will then confirm your registration via private message and give you PayPal payment instructions, and our draft order will be decided by the order of payment received from participants.

The Little Green Men Xmas Tree

The Little Green Men Xmas Tree

I don’t know what I find more adorable, andybear@hk‘s build or that fact that there is a giant tree somewhere completely covered in LGM’s.

New Toy Story Short ‘Small Fry’

There’s a new Toy Story short written and directed by Angus “CubeDude” MacLane called Small Fry. It’s set to debut in front of The Muppets hitting theaters on November 23rd.

Says Angus:

“It’s like the Prince and the Pauper tale for toys,” says writer/director Angus MacLane. “Except one of them happens to be 3 inches tall.”

TRU 8 Hour BOGO Sale Ends Soon

As I write this there is only 1 hour 20 minutes left to take advantage of this offer, but maybe someone can take advantage.

Toys’R’Us is having a special 8 hour BOGO sale on select LEGO sets. LEGO Toy Story 7599 Garbage Truck Getaway is a TRU exclusive and is priced at $42.98 and is eligible for the BOGO. The best deal, however, is my personal favorite set from the Atlantis theme, 8075 Neptune Carrier, is priced at $44.98, already discounted down from MSRP of $59.99. Buying two copies of that will set you back $67.47. Tax and shipping applies if applicable, but you’ll get free shipping once your cart total reaches $75 or more. Sale ends 7pm EST.

Thanks to kojitator for the heads up.
