The Hobbit LEGO Set

Geeks lucky enough to be in San Diego enjoying Comic-Con are starting to get the first looks at what LEGO has in store for the coming year, and so far some cool stuff has been revealed. Sets based on the upcoming move of The Hobbit, a pretty sweet new Star Wars set, and some new minifigures have all popped up online so far.

First off, Bag End from The Hobbit was unveiled, and it looks great. Due out in December, the Hobbit hole comes with six minifigures and is surprisingly awesome in LEGO form. I can’t wait to see what else LEGO has in store for the first Hobbit movie. Make sure to check out FBTB for a huge gallery of photos.

I’m not a collector of LEGO Star Wars sets, probably because they’ve been around so long that diving in feels too daunting, but this new Rancor Pit set really caught my eye. One of the best scenes in Return of the Jedi makes for an awesome little LEGO set.

LEGO aslo has some super cool Super Hero exclusive minifigures that I’ll probably never get to see in person. Expect to see these for crazy prices on ebay. Phoenix, Black Suit Spider-Man, Shazam, and Bizarro are all available at Comic-Con this year, and they all look great.

Alex Deligiannis

Are you headed to the San Diego Comic-Con this year? If so, you’ll want to make sure to stop by Booth 1802 and pay a visit to our friend Alex Deligiannis. Alex has been making amazing sketches every day this year and will be selling mini-prints of a select few. He’s picked 20 of his favorite sketches and has printed them on 5×7 cards. You can pick up your favorite Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle (in classic red mask or cartoon colors), Spawn, Link, Dick Tracy, X-Men, The Maxx, my personal favorite, the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, and more.

In addition to the awesome mini-prints, Boom! Studios is selling a SDCC-exclusive variant of Peanuts #1, with a cover colored by Mr. Deligiannis himself. Make sure to check out Alex’s post to see more photos of his prints and find out more info.

Posted 10 years ago by Toys

If you’re lucky enough to be able to attend SDCC this year, here is a heads up on some of Hasbro’s exclusive toys. I don’t know what I’d do with myself at an event that huge, but I’m sure I would want to spend way more money than I would have. Hell, I’d go just to get this Super Hero Squad Show exclusive featuring the mayor of Superhero City and Dr. Doom in his jammies.
