[SDCC] LEGO’s Exclusive Minifigure Giveaway Recap

Success

Another year and another San Diego Comic Con under our collective belts. I am more or less fully recovered from my trip and decompressed enough to gather my thoughts on how LEGO handled their minifigure giveaway this year. I’ll only be talking about the minifigure giveaway and not the exclusive sets that were for sale. That will be in another post which you probably won’t want to miss.

So this year, LEGO did something they’ve never done before and actually put out information early on how the queueing process would be handled. There would be a line upstairs away from the exhibit hall floor. Attendee badges would be scanned and fans would walk up to an iPad where there was a custom built app and a single “Play” button. Press the button and you had a 50/50 chance on winning that day’s exclusive minifigure. If you lost, you would walk down what I affectionately call Loser’s Lane and if you won, you would walk over and pick up your figure right then and there. And how did it go? Fantastically! It went so smoothly and efficiently that I almost forgot how bad it was the previous years. I really have to tip my hat to the events team that planned it this year as they addressed every major problem from years past and created a non-riotous, almost enjoyable experience.

Today’s exclusive minifig giveaway was the all too colorful Zur-En-Arrh Batman. His head has double-sided printing with one side looking a little too maniacal. And considering he’s holding a baseball bat it just adds to the looney effect.

[SDCC] Official Images of Zur-En-Arrh Batman Minifigure Comic Con Exclusive

Posted on USA Today, we finally get a look at the official Zur-En-Arrh Batman minifigure as well as the packaging. Batman will come with a baseball bat accessory and will feature a double-sided head. The packaging looks very similar to last year’s exclusives: a plastic clamshell containing a folded cardboard backdrop.

[SDCC] Zur-En-Arrh Batman Is DC’s LEGO Exclusive Minifigure Giveaway

Update: Forum member Gooker1 reminded me of the above poster that features the Zur-En-Arrh Batsuit. I have no idea where it came from but I think it’s a pretty safe bet that what we are seeing in that poster is what we will be getting.

LEGO’s final Comic Con exclusive minifigure for DC Comics has been revealed to be Zur-En-Arrh Batman. I have not received a picture of the actual figure yet but it will be based on the batsuit pictured above.

We already know that Bard is to be given away on Thursday and Unikitty on Sunday. So if I was a betting man, I’d have to venture a guess that the DC minifigure giveaway will be Saturday with Marvel’s The Collector being given away on Friday. My chances are 50/50 of being right though so I could just as easily be wrong but I like my chances.

Minifigure giveaways will begin at 12:30 every day upstairs in the Sails Pavilion. Check out this post for more details.
