    More Lego SDCC Promotions & New Theme Announced!


    Brick fans, brace yourself for the newest San Diego Comic Con giveaway reveal: according to this USA Today article, Lego will be introducing a new line of collectibles starting in 2017 entitled Lego BrickHeadz.  It appears this new theme recreates cute, stylized versions of our favorite Super Heroes in Lego form, similar to Pop! Vinyl Figures.

    At San Diego Comic Con, there will be four limited edition "preview packs" that attendees will be able to purchase for $40 each.  They are:

    DC Comics

    Batman & Joker

    636041361928337033-Supes-WW.jpg

    Superman and Wonder Woman

    Marvel Comics

    636041361934889075-Cap-Iron-man.jpg

    Iron Man and Captain America

    636041361927869030-Strange-Panther.jpg

    Doctor Strange and Black Panther

    No further news has been provided on what the new 2017 BrickHeadz retail offerings will look like or which characters will be provided, but I would guess these characters will all be available at retail. 

    What do you think about this new theme?  Please give us your thoughts in the comment section below.

    And pocket the difference in sale price for themselves instead of giving it to those awful resellers ;) 

    Since they are charging $40 for each set of 2 of those new "cubedude" like characters, that would cost you $160 for the set - so in a way, they are.

    The Cubedudes back in 2010 were sold as one set together (not 4).

    Man these are UGGGGLLLLYYY!  No thanks. Big time pass on me both as an investment and as a collector.  Just like Pokemon Go, I just don't get the funko pop craze either.   This bubble will "pop" in a few years and all these will be worthless.  Then there will be all this useless funko pop figurines valued at 0 floating in the great pacific garbage patch.  

    Regardless.... I also see this as another case where Lego is kind of losing their edge.  

    While, we can champion the Disney Castle, and to some degree the Big Ben, Lego has been pretty stale on new and exciting ideas this year.

    I think they look more like Nanoblock, which has been putting out these buildable Super Heros for years.

    In case you don't know, Nanoblock is a Japanese smaller version of construction toys. Kind of fun if you don't have big hands.

    So, there IS an upside. They could've looked worse. Wow! Those are way worse. Glad Lego didn't go with that Nanoblock look!

    FUNKO pops are my guilty pleasure. I'm 40 years old, an Army officer, a medical provider, and I have subscriptions for Star Wars Smugglers Bounty, Marvel Collectors Corps, and DC Universe subscription boxes. I'm not sure what the heck is wrong with me.

    That is what I love about this  year instead of having to spend time deciding what to get Lego makes it for me by making bad sets.

    Green Arrow I don't mind since he showed up in Darkseid Invasion.  I would like a classic version of the Atom, but I don't recognize that costume.  Is it new 52 or something else?

    Edit - just saw that's the Arrow TV series version of the character.  Good choice for an exclusive minifig.  Nothing I really want.

    Green Arrow will be a giveaway during the LEGO Dimensions panel on Sunday.  Audience members will be given him when they enter the room.  (Of course, the one year I'm not going to SDCC, because I normally go on Sunday, and would have definitely hit this panel).

    I agree - I'd love to have a classic Atom.  This version is from the CW "Arrowverse" - it has appeared in Arrow, The Flash, and DC's Legends of Tomorrow.

    Where do you guys think the price for these minifigs will settle at in the next couple of days?  I have a feeling since there are only 2 minifigs, the numbers should be higher and therefore price could settle around $100...before going up again...don't know though

    Those are more Minecraft than Funko.

    You really think so? The big heads, beady little eyes, small bodies... That's no Minecraft.

    Hmmmmm... I think maybe if a Minecraft mommy and a FUNKO daddy loved each other very much.... That might be the result.
