Shazam! and Venom Minifigs SDCC Exclusive


Last post for the night.

Tomorrow is Friday, or today depending on when some of you are reading this, and Friday at San Diego Comic Con is slated to be LEGO Super Heroes day. As part of that celebration, LEGO is giving away 1,000 of each of the four exclusive minifigs: Bizarro and Shazam! for DC Universe and Venom and Phoenix for Marvel, for a total of 4,000 figures. Here's what you gotta know:


  • There are no tickets. In years past, LEGO had a box with raffle tickets where you can draw one and see if you've won. Not this time. This year they are scanning badges.

  • Badge scanning will commence once the doors open for the public starting at 9am and continue until about 12 or 2, I'm not really sure but you should get there early anyway.

  • You can only get your badge scanned ONCE, so it is pointless to get back into line.

  • Once badge scanning has stopped, winners will be selected at random to win one of the four figures. You can only win one figure.

  • A list of winners and the minifigure they won will be posted at the LEGO booth at around 4pm.

  • If you've won, you can claim your minifig at the stage. You can claim your minifigure anytime between the time the list is posted and the convention hall closes.



These measures have been implemented and changed from last year's process for several reasons, the most prominent one being to reduce the overcrowding and the carousel effect around the booth. So, in a nutshell: Get there early, have your badge scanned, come back later in the day. Good luck to everyone!

Are they giving out all 4K today, or are they spreading them out throughout the entire con?

He's officially called SHAZAM! in the comics now, so this is one of those many situations where you think everyone else is wrong, but it's just you. :D

Because Marvel politely asked DC to change the character's name. Or something to that effect, I think.

Which would be funny given the character predates the company.

Hence the "politely." DC is under no obligation to change the character's name, but for branding purposes and to reduce consumer confusion, they did anyway. I do say, the name Shazam is not nearly as cool as Captain Marvel.
