Green Lantern’s Light!

12611988784_5076d95dbf_o

Fellow chat troll murphquake found this picture of a new Green Lantern keychain light on Entertainment Earth. Could this be a sign of a new fig on the horizon? A set we haven’t yet seen or an upcoming exclusive poly to accompany the remainder of The LEGO Movie releases in June? Who knows, but first Martian Manhunter and now this glimmer of hope for a new GL.
In brightest day, indeed.

Wheels of Justice Contest Reminder

Announcing The Wheels of Justice Contest

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.

Superman Minifig Unveiled

Superman Minifig

I just received the official images for the Superman minifig that the DC booth will be giving away at New York Comic Con this weekend. I’m not entirely sure what the distribution method will be but I’m pretty sure it’ll involve a line of some kind, waiting around for an undetermined number of minutes, and will be repeated daily. I know, helpful right? Below are more official images of the Batman and Green Lantern minifigs that will also be given away; they are the same exact figs that were offered at San Diego Comic Con earlier this year.

Staff Writer Rick Theroux will be attending the con on Friday and will be providing his initial impressions of the Batcave set along with a slew of images so stay tuned!

Want SDCC Exclusives? LEGO & Brickset Are Giving Them Away!

Win these minifigs!

Huw Millington over at Brickset.com is hosting a nice little giveaway. I won’t go into details here, but if you’d like to win the two SDCC exclusives above click the picture and follow the trail of breadcrumbs. The aim of this is to raise awareness for the LEGO Super Heroes Challenge building contest so I figured I’d include the link in that spirit. Otherwise, I want to win so you’ll get nothing more from me ;)

Walmart Blu-ray and DVD Deals

Wal-Mart.com USA, LLC

Let it be known that I prefer referring sales to Amazon if the price for a particular item is the same as another retailer since they offer both free shipping to your home and no charges for sales tax to most states. But Walmart’s affiliate program gave me an offer I couldn’t refuse, so I figure I’d make a post to try and push some sales. So, if you live in a state that doesn’t charge sales tax or you don’t mind paying it to support the state you live in, and you don’t mind supporting Walmart, and you want to support FBTB, and you don’t mind picking up your order with free site-to-store shipping, then maybe there’s a deal or two here for you.

If you haven’t picked up Star Wars on Blu-ray yet, Walmart is offering the complete saga for $79.99. They also have the original trilogy and the prequel trilogy both for $39.99. And lastly, LEGO Star Wars: The Padawan Menace is a Walmart exclusive and can still be had for a measly $13 dollars. If you have little ones that are into LEGO Star Wars, a small investment will provide hours of entertainment.

In Cars 2 news, there is a Walmart-exclusive Blu-ray/DVD combo pack that also comes with a diecast car of Finn McMissile. No details yet if this version of the British spy is any different than the one that’s clogging up the pegs everywhere you go, but if it is we’ll let you know. The combo pack + car will run you $29.96. If you care more about 3D Blu-ray than a collectible, the 3D Blu-ray/Blu-ray/DVD combo pack might suit you better at $31.96. And if you don’t care about either and just want the movie, there’s a deal for that too for $24.96. All of the Cars 2 preorders will ship free to your home on the day it’s released on November 1, 2011.

For all you Pirates of the Caribbean fans, there’s a Walmart-exclusive release of the Blu-ray/DVD for On Stranger Tides that includes a Pirate Tin Bank. The tin bank set will set you back $24.96. This item will ship free to your home on October 18, 2011.

And finally, for you comic book movie fans, there’s Thor on Blu-ray/DVD for $22.96 plus a 3D version for $7 dollars more ($29.96), both with free Site-to-Store shipping. I think it’s funny that Green Lantern on Blu-ray/DVD costs more ($24.96) than Thor considering how terrible Green Lantern was. There’s a 3D version as well for $29.96. Green Lantern stinks up the DVD aisles on October 14, 2011.

Superheroes Community Window at Costa Mesa

LEGO Brand Retail Costa Mesa Community Window - 1

Paul Lee, LEGO Ambassador for LUGOLA and all around good guy, set the theme for the Costa Mesa LEGO Brand Retail store for the next few weeks: Superheroes of Marvel and DC Comics. The display featured some large scale figs of famous superheroes from both brands, though DC Comics had a slightly larger presence. SandLUG member Matt Armstrong (monsterbrick), Mariann Asanuma (Model Gal) along with LUGOLA members Ezra (B. Ezra), Paul Lee (polywen), and myself helped fill out the display with miniland scale superheroes, miniature models, m-wings, and other items all to promote next year’s Superheroes license.

You can get a close up of Ezra’s contributions in his photostream.
