Comic Con Programming For The LEGO Fan

Comic Con starts tomorrow, Wednesday, July 18th, with Preview Night. No programming that day, but there’s a handful of stuff you might be interested in seeing if you’re a fellow LEGO fan. I browsed the programming schedule and pulled all of the relevant panels into a handy list below. Not a lot and it skews heavily towards DC so it may be fun if you’re into that sort of thing.

Only one of the panels indicates a giveaway and that’s the one on Sunday for the Aquaman: Rage of Atlantis movie. You’ll get a free Jessica Cruz/Green Lantern minifig, which is the promotional free pack-in figure when it comes out on DVD later.
