San Diego Comic Con 2009 Exclusives

Postby Staff » Wed Jul 22, 2009 6:00 am

This year, LEGO is trying something new. In addition to the Brickmaster exclusive set (which is still a bit of a mystery), they are also offering "Collectible Display Set" which consist of three minifigs, a printed backdrop in a clear plastic display box. There are a total of 5 sets, one for each day of the show. No word on the total number of each set yet, but I'm pretty sure they'll be limited. The funny thing is, is that there are 5 days to Comic Con including Preview Night, and there are 6 exclusives. Not sure what the deal is but once I find out more information, I'll post it here.

Wow, I would love to get my hands on one of those. The Hoth minifigure exclusive and the ROTJ are definately the best ones in my opinion. Any indea on how you would get one of these at Comic Con...?

Seconded, and they will be nigh impossible to get at the mere obscenely expensive price if you're not in San Diego this week.

These are sweet. I might actually venture into e-bay territory to get one of these.

My thoughts exactly. I saw these went Woo Hoo, then noticed they were exclusives and used a 4 letter explicative.

How much would I have to give Ace to swipe/legitimately purchase one of these for me?

They look cool, I like the second one.

These character sets are cracking, but don't they infringe Hasbro horse's sarlacc licensing agreement?

One every day? Ugh, this is going to be unpossible (Ralph Wiggum). I have my friends there trying for it, but they didn't know about the one per day junk. UGLY.


Update: Okay, here's the scoop to why you see six sets, but the con is only going on for 5 days. One of those sets (Anakin, Obi-wan & Clone) are available everyday. There are a total of 1250 of those sets, and the exclusives are "raffled" off for 300 a day.

Here's the crazy kicker - each set is $50!!!! That's $300 for all of the sets, but that's assuming you're lucky enough to get a ticket to buy. The only ones who will buy this are collectors, as i doubt a mom or dad will pay $50 for their son/daughter. And even at that, i think most Lego collectors will balk at that price. We complain about set pricing all the time, and for $50 for three minifigs that are in other sets is really tough to chew. We're basically paying for the backdrop and reused figures.

I'm really really on the fence on this and I went crazy about the Toy Fair Han/Indy exclusive two years ago for a few hundred dollars. This one is just really tough to go through right now. The economy isn't the best and there are a ton of Star wars sets that just hit the shelves...ugh...

Update #2: Oh, I just found out that that's six figure set exclusives right? That's not including the actual Brickmaster exclusive!! That's being done every day and it's also $50. Soooo, if you want EVERY SW Lego exclusive, get ready to shell out $350 plus tax - yea...insanity.

I'm thinking about just trying to get the OT Star Wars sets. But even that is still $150. I honestly think that these sets are so overpriced that you'll be able to get these below cost for thoses who sell them online.

Good luck everyone

Well i really hope you are right, but I doubt it. They are certainly overpriced, but I would still pay those prices if I had the chance. There are a lot of us 'stupid' collectors out there. Already saw a couple listed on eBay for BIN of $150 or best offer.

Thanks Gooker1 for the update

Just got wind from my buddy at Comic Con. It appears it's a mini LAAT/c and the mini AT-TE that all ready came with a recent Brickmaster. I wonder if the LAAT/c will come out eventually.

Either way, I decided that I definitely don't need this for 50 bucks.

Yeah, Mr. Meno had a different shot of it up earlier today that I nearly posted myself, but figured I should ask Steve first since I thought it was supposed to be all secret until tomorrow. Donneyboy even posted it above. But as I've gotten no reply I'ma figure it's fine.

Wow these sets look great, but they are to expensive for something so simple. But I guess I'll decide when I see them tomorrow up close.

just got back from preview night at comic-con. didn't arrive early enough to get a raffle ticket, so i wasn't able to buy the exclusive set tonight (the one with ahsoka, mace windu, and clone trooper). each set had "XXX of 300" printed on them, and there were ahsoka sets left over after the raffle ended.

the clone wars obi-wan, luke skywalker, clone trooper set was available without a raffle ticket. 1250 are being sold. i figured it wasn't worth the cash. maybe if it had been 3 minifigs from the mos eisley cantina...

the sets are $50/each. the more exclusive sets (300 total per set) are limited to 1 per raffle ticket. i'm going to hold out for 3 sets from the original films.

the other exclusive set is a laat/c mini-set. the at-te walker looks exactly like the one i just got through brickmaster. not sure if it's worth $50 and standing in line for a raffle, but i guess that's why i got the 4-day pass. gotta complete the collection of mini-vehicles.

otherwise, the sets for sale were the same available through lego.shop.com. the new battle of endor, echo base, separatist shuttle, anakin's y-wing, venator-class cruiser, and corporate alliance tank droid were there, as well as some older sets. same price as the website. i didn't see the tantive iv set for sale, but it was on display. the displays give you a good sense of the proportion and number of pieces. battle of endor looks cool, but not sure it's worth $100.

little disappointed that the new sets for sale through target, wal-mart, and toys-r-us weren't available--or even on display. guess they're being kept under wraps until next month.

my one grab: silver stormtrooper magnet. no s&h through the lego website!

tomorrow is the release of the new lego star wars visual dictionary. first 50 in get dk swag and a chance to win a lego star wars set and free copy of the book.
