Moments ago, USAToday posted their exclusive look at this year’s San Diego Comic Con exclusive LEGO minifigures. This year’s line up for DC Universe features Black Suit Superman and Green Arrow while Marvel is being repped by Spider-Woman and alternate-suit Spider-Man. As usual, there are no details no how to obtain them. That information will have to be discovered at the con. We will be posting details as soon as we find out any more information so stay tuned.

At last year’s San Diego Comic Con, Marvel was selling pre-orders for their Avengers ultimate 10-disc box set and as an incentive, you received this awesome poster. Plans fell through on that box set, and it was released much later than the expected date. Now, if you’re headed to Comic Con, and are a fan of Skottie Young, and want to purchase Phase One of Marvel’s Cinematic Universe on Blu-ray in a 6-disc set, then this deal may be for you. Mr. Young has created the above poster and Marvel is including it as an incentive if you purchase the box set at the Marvel booth. Price is $150 for everything. On a side note, Amazon is selling that amazing 10-disc limited edition set which includes Blu-ray copies of the film in the special case with the Tesseract for $155. Don’t know what other goodies are included in the SDCC 2013 version, but we’ll see. More info below:

In what seems to be a convention tradition now, LEGO had a giant mural that booth visitors can help build. Since each day of the con had a certain theme, the 30′x7.5′ wall was divided into four even sections with each section dedicated to a day’s theme. The baseplates comprising the wall had a numbered grid printed on top corresponding to 6×6 stud plates. The 8×8 plates were also printed with colors where the matching 1×1 bricks are supposed to go. Once the 6×6 plate is complete, it is then hammered onto the wall.
Bizarro and Phoenix minifigs have been officially revealed. They will be part of a giveaway on Friday. To enter the chance to win these minifigs, you’ll have to visit the LEGO booth on Friday starting at around 10 am. You’ll have your badge scanned and you’ll be placed into a pool. Badge scanning will stop sometime in the afternoon. After that, names will be randomly selected to win 1 of the four exclusive minifigs. The other two are Shazam! and Venom. There are 1,000 of each figure. And just to be extra clear on this point: these figures will NOT be available in any future set.
Huw over on Brickset has shared a tip eagle eyed LEGO fan blueduck78 found on ksitetv.com:
“Join ever-informed, fancentric WAC Podcast hosts George Feltenstein, Matthew Patterson, and DW Ferranti as they give fans a look at the upcoming DVD release of the popular 1970s series Shazam! The series’ own Billy Batson, Michael Gray, will be on hand, and an exclusive, limited-edition Shazam! LEGO figure will be awarded to a lucky number of fans in attendance.”
A LEGO employee even popped by to confirm there would in fact be a LEGO presence at both the San Diego and New York Comic Con this year. While this is no surprise after last years DC exclusive Batman, Superman and the coveted Green Lantern figures, I’m sure some may be surprised by the choice of the character. Rest assured, we are working hard to get more info about the available exclusives and stay tuned for more info as it comes in.
