[NYCC] New York Comic Con

I’ve been attending New York Comic Con since 2009. This year was my first time as an exhibitor, which was a completely new experience. I am a member of I LUG NY, the New York tri-state area LEGO User Group. A few months ago, LEGO community relations manager Jim Foulds approached us with the opportunity to create a fan display for the convention. We were asked to have Star Wars, Marvel, DC, and Lord of the Rings represented. A LUG member each took charge of a theme, and we worked in teams over many weeks to build a display. We adopted the MILS standard of building to produce a modular display that could be rearranged depending on what area dimensions we had to fill. It worked out great, and we are all really proud of the result.

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!

DC Comics at NYCC Gives Away Superman Minifig, Debuts Batcave

Superman - LEGO Super Heroes Minifigs - DC Comics

Going to New York Comic Con next week (October 13-16)? Well if you are stop by the DC Comics booth. In addition to the LEGO Batman and Green Lantern minfigs they’ll be given away, you may be lucky enough to walk away with a Superman minifig as well. I’ve been told that it will be “packaged” the same way as the Batman and Green Lantern minifigs from San Diego Comic Con. Also, somewhere in their booth they will be debuting the upcoming Batcave set in all its finalized glory.

Will you be attending NYCC with a camera in tow? Or willing to pick me up a Supes minifig for trade? Hit me up if you are!
