[SDCC] More LEGO Comic Con Exclusives Revealed: Ghost Ship, Unikitty? And an Upcoming Movie Set Revealed

Eagle-eyed contributor Tohst spotted this Yahoo! Movies article revealing a few more goodies in store for us attending San Diego Comic Con.

First up is a Unikitty whose face changes from “Cuteskitty” to “Cheerkitty” with a flick of a wrist. I’m guessing this Unikitty is bigger than the brick built one you get in a set, maybe about the same size as the awesome keychain light. That being said, I don’t believe that it is one of the four exclusive minifigs that LEGO plans to give away and it is probably just an item for sale at the booth.

Next is a reveal for an upcoming set based The LEGO Movie coming out January 2015. It looks to be a small set featuring Batman, Angry Kitty, a Micromanager, and a skeleton. Hopefully this picture isn’t cropped and hiding a gigantic model in the background somewhere because this would be a cheap way to get Angry Kitty even though she is a different design than the one that comes in Emmet’s Construct-o-Mech.

The second reveal is the Star Wars themed retail exclusive mentioned in my previous article, The Ghost ship. Retailing for $39.99 it features the R2 unit, Chopper. And being built in the same Chibi style as Rocket’s Warbird, my hope of a full-sized TV series Batmobile is quickly diminishing. The Ghost, Batmobile, and Warbird all retail for $39.99 and are limited to 250 each per day of the con not including preview night.

[SDCC] LEGO Comic Con Exclusives Revealed – Guardians of the Galaxy’s The Collector, Classic TV Batmobile, and Star Wars Ghost Starship

The-Collector

Once again, the Wall Street Journal is the place to be for they have spilled the beans partially on LEGO’s offerings for this year’s San Diego Comic Con. Pictured above is The Collector from the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy film. He is the first of four minifigures to be given away at SDCC and so far the only one to be revealed.

And that’s not all. The last paragraph of the article states the following:

The two other Lego sets that will be sold at the Lego booth are of a Batmobile from the classic television series, and of the Ghost starship from “Star Wars.” Each is priced at $39.99 and Lego will sell 1000 of each set during the show, capped at 250 per day

Oh. My. Freakin’. God. A classic tv series LEGO Batmobile would make my head explode. Based on the price point, it is feasible that it could be a regular set since the Ecto-1 and DeLorean sets were priced about the same. But looking at the LEGO Rocket Raccoon’s Warbird announcement from yesterday which features a mini ship at the same price, I’m left wondering. I can only hope that the Batmobile is regular sized but we’ll find out next week.

The article also shows off a lifesized Rocket Raccoon and Groot statue made out of Megabloks just kidding LEGO.

I have to go catch my breath now.

_Tiler’s Batrod

The 'other' car  –  minifig scale lego Batmobile

It wasn’t until Calin’s (_Tiler) flickr stream was linked to in chat the other day that I finally became aware of his work. The above is his latest Batmobile, the Batrod. And yes, it fits the Batman minifig. He’s got a whole host of other incredible works, including microscale and minifig scale Tumblers. Check out his LEGO Batmobile flickr set for more.

“Why didn’t somebody tell me he had one of those… things?”

If you want to see how LEGO should have done their Batwing in the most recent set, take a look at sok117‘s Burton-esque model. He’s built himself a full set of “basic” bat vehicles (land, sea & air) all with matching red leather seats and, I assume, Bat-cup holders for when the Dark Knight gets drive through. As someone on Flickr already mentioned, all that wing needs is a balloon stealing scissor-clamp between the ears and it’s perfect.

A Totally Different Kind Of Batmobile

Batmobile: 2025!

Lino Martins is never afraid to push the envelope. For the latest LUGNuts challenge, Batmobile: 2025, his contribution is like no other Batmobile I’ve ever seen. Conceived as a COE, steeped in retro art deco, armored to the gills and badass front to back. I can just imagine what this would sound like roaring down the streets of Gotham.

Proudlove’s Batmobile

When Flickr group LUGNuts announced its Build Challenge 51 – Batmobile: 2025, I knew we were in for a treat. As is usual the big guns are always late to the party, but they rarely disappoint. Nathan Proudlove recently contributed this pretty cool Batmobile. Be sure to check out Nathan’s photostream for more pics, including the lighting features.

Artifex’s Tumbler and Batpod

Tumbler cover

It’s hard not to get excited when you see the tumbler. It’s really hard not to get excited when you see a LEGO built tumbler. But a LEGO built tumbler with spinning flames, side bombs, movable features, detailed cockpit and transforming Batpod? I defy you not to get excited. Flickr user Artifex creation offers up this excellent rendition of my favorite Batmobile.

I realize we JUST launched this contest a few days ago, so it might seem a bit premature for a contest reminder post, but I have good reason. Forum member volumex kindly pointed out to me that the deadline to enter the monthly contest on LEGOSuperHeroes.com is the 15th of every month. So to be eligible for December’s contest, which happens to be the last month they’ll be holding a contest, you must submit your entries to their site by the 15th of November. Our contest deadline isn’t changing: you have until the 30th of this month to enter in either the Batmobile and/or the GreenLanternmobile category.

Good luck to all.

Minifig Scale Tumbler

Tumbler

I love the Tumbler, Batman’s kick-ass vehicle from Batman Begins and Dark Knight. Not only for it’s complex lines and aggressive posture, but from it’s concept as a converted military prototype. True that a vehicle of such special purpose and limited use would be unlikely to ever make it to prototype form…BUT IT’S SO COOL! This version by Flickr user ZetoVince captures everything I dig about it, and does so at pretty accurate scale and with excellent technique.
