Postby Staff » Fri Jul 13, 2012 7:44 am

Update: there will be other prizes, the below list is just the bigger ticket items.


Hulk


I just received word that there will be additional prizes to be awarded to the lucky few that win an exclusive minifig today. If you win a minifig, look at the back of it. If you find a sticker, you will win one of the following bonus prizes:


  • 18" LEGO Built Hulk and Batman Model – These are awesome! Like a mini version of the Hulk in our booth!!

  • Signed Comic Books

  • Green Lantern & Kilowog DC Collectibles Comic-Con Exclusive Figure 2-Packs

  • The Batcave signed by Jim Lee and Geoff Johns.

  • LEGO Batman 2 Video Games

  • Framed LEGO DC and Marvel Model Design Sketches

  • Exclusive Superman and Batman Maquettes

  • Four-Pack of LEGOLAND California Tickets

  • PS Vita Video Game Console



Good luck to all!

Geez, you'd think, with as difficult to acquire and desirable as they made those figs, that making those additional prizes go to the people who already lucked into a fig would be kind of overkill. You'd think maybe the people who DIDN'T get lucky enough to get a fig would be the ones tossed into that prize pool...

Ouch. Like adding salt to an open wound. Great customer relations, Lego. :roll:

Why don't you spread out the prizes to the unlucky "few" who aren't winning a minifigure already?!?! >8(

Ah, entitlement strikes again. It's a convention, they're designed to hype up products and generate excitement. Everyone can't be a prize winner, you just have to be lucky!
eBay store, contact me if you'd like to perform trades from my inventory. I'm looking for original genosian fighers, second version a-wing fighters and tie bombers. I may be interested in other sets so let me know what you have.

It's not entitlement. I'm not attending, and likely never will be. It just seems like good sense. Exactly how does concentrating all the prizes in a smaller pool of attendees hype anything up more, or generate more excitement? It doesn't. The people that got figs are likely already plenty excited and "hyped". What's the value in limiting any further hype and excitement only to that small group?

Frankly, I would think the "excitement" level would be better maintained if even those that didn't get a figure thought there was at least a CHANCE that they MIGHT get something else. As it stands, if you don't get the fig, the hype and excitement value ends right there.

I'm upset at Comic-con in general. I waited for hours to get my badges online only to have the link that they provided us not to work. when it finally did work, Friday was already sold out. I only had the option to purchase Thursday or Sunday tickets. So I got Thursday tickets. All they had going on yesterday was the Bilbo thing and that was over by 11. They should have had the raffles for a minifig each day. That would have been cool. 4 minifigs. 4 days. 4 raffles. The extra prizes are cool, but they kinda leave you out in hte cold if you picked the wrong day to attend. Since you had to buy the badge back in March there would be no way in knowing which day to attend.

Of course I probably would have gone on the day that they would have given away the Phoenix minifig and I would be bitter about that too. :facepalm:

Wait, are these Green Lantern & Kilowog figures minifigs? I would be surprised (and mad) if they were, but I'm just checking.

I agree completely. My Comic-con badge buying experiences have been less than smooth or ideal. I also agree that Lego should have spread the minifig raffle out over 4 days rather than all on Friday - or at least over 2 days.

Nope. They're just regular old action figures.

I was lucky enough to win the raffle within the raffle. I didn't want to wait around to pick up the minifigure I won as it was a zoo w/ everyone there.

I got my figure around 6pm and won an Avengers hat. I'm not complaining, but one of those big ticket items would have been pretty awesome. LOL
