I just recently thought about that LEGO should do this cover as a set.  Not as a SDCC exclusive. This would fly off the shelves. What will be next? Toy Fair exclusive modular? An obscure minifig is OK, however doing iconic stuff like this is too much.

Yeah...boo!

But, I doubt Lego is only creating a run of 2000 of this part in green.  Just like the 2x2 Trans-Green plate that seems to be non-existent accept for the forthcoming Dagobah SW micro build, I have to think we're going to see both of those bricks somewhere else soon.  Time to start sleuthing on where else those might show up.  (It won't be in the Scooby Doo sets, I know that much).

There was a "Q" element in the Tatooine set as well. I think Lego is doing this on purpose now. Maybe because of people like me making reproductions.

It wouldn't surprise me in the least that LEGO is doing it on purpose to stop people from reproducing them and selling them... They may not blatantly stop resellers but they clearly have a few strategies to deal with them.

this is actually a perfect way to make them exclusive with minimal cost.  creating new parts is expensive, changing colors is not.    it should be just enough to make the set unique will still allowing MOCers to make their own recreations.

I predict $300 on 1st day of availability, and it won't go lower than $200 afterwards :money:

This might be the first comic-con exclusive I go after...hoping it dips below $200 at some point.  Might be a good Brickclassifieds want ad/trade opportunity.

You can only get one if you're lucky, or maybe your kids, gang, posse, bingo team, etc. can get tickets too.  Read the rules in the main post.

Waddamon - If you are going to SDCC and have not been before to get the LEGO exclusives then you must prepare yourself.  There are many die-hard LEGO fans and scalpers going after these same exclusives and the per day allotment is usually small (like 75-100 of each exclusive).  It may seem like a decent amount but with over 100k people at Comic-Con each day you will have lots of competition.  They are doing a raffle this year for the chance to buy the exclusives instead of having people rush their booth first thing in the morning which is an improvement.  However be prepared to spend the first part of your day going through a long raffle line and may the odds ever be in your favor.

Where are the whitewall tires? Those are a must for vintage cars.

The Wall Street Journal has just revealed a second minifigure that'll be available at San Diego Comic Con next month.

It represents the Arrow character Arsenal, AKA Roy Harper, and 1500 will be given away on Thursday July 9 via a raffle.

Well, he looks cheerful.
