LEGO is always one of the hottest stands at San Diego Comic-Con, with lines often stretching down towards the Marina as ardent fans bake in the California heat to get their hands on the freshest sets.
Well, expect those lines to be back in force again (no pun intended) this July. We already knew about the first of this years SDCC exclusives from the company: a cracking mini-build of Dagobah from Star Wars Episode IV: The Empire Strikes Back, the swamp planet on which Luke tracks down Jedi Master Yoda – the set is of Yoda’s home and of Luke’s downed X-Wing. You can agree, a lot smoother and shiner than represented on film!
An iconic planet from the Star Wars films The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi in one of the most pivotal scenes is recreated in LEGO bricks; available for sale only at San Diego Comic-Con.
~ Ages 8-14 ~ 177 pieces ~ $39.99
Now, LEGO are promising to reveal further figures every Friday, leading up to this yeasr event, meaning we’ve got two more weeks of figures to come – we’ll be posting this when the news lands in our inbox. In the meantime, here’s the figure for this week: a brilliant, all-new Captain America ‘Sam Wilson / Falcon’ minifig, which lucky fans can get free on the stand. You just have to do the line wait to earn it…
