  1. As the title says, I'm looking for someone who has the exclusive SDCC BrickHeadz. And I don't mean stored away MISB to sell at some point, but I mean actually built (for what they are meant). Why? Well, I'm a collector of the Brickheadz series, but no-way I'm going to spent thousand(s) of dollars to get all these exclusive brickheadz. On a sidenote, I think it's a stupid decision from Lego to make so many SDCC exclusive Brickheadz. Brickheadz is a really collectible-oriented theme and a few exclusive ones is not a problem, but now there are already as much exclusives as there are standard Brickheadz Anyway, back on topic. As I said, buying the original ones is not an option for me. So, I'd like to Bricklink the parts. And for the printed pieces, I want to try to make some custom stickers. And here's where I need the help of someone with the set(s). Someone at the LDraw forums has been making vector images of the normal Brickheadz prints. And he's fine with making some vector copies of the SDCC prints too, he just needs some scans or photo's of the part. So, if you have these sets or if you know someone with the sets, please let me know Thanks! Btw, I wasn't sure if I had to post this in Licensed or in Special Themes
  2. I spent 2 and a half hours waiting in line and all I got was a sunburn. And I was one of the few lucky that even had a chance at getting one without paying $150+. And of course 90% of them are up on ebay now. Sorry for the rant, I'm super salty I hate scalpers and I hate this whole "super exclusive" nonsense.
  3. I am selling a 100% complete NYCC/SDCC/NYTF collection that I am willing to split up and sell the pieces individually.Condition:All items are mint unless otherwise noted. These are probably the best condition you'll be able to find anywhere as I pride myself on only offering the best. Shipping (US+WW):Shipping within the continental US is free + extra cost if you want insurance. Shipping outside of the continental US will be charged at cost only. You will be invoiced after the item has been shipped so that you're only charged exact cost.Pictures:More can be provided upon request, just ask!Pricing:Some items were listed on eBay by other sellers, in which case the price I listed below is cheaper than theirs. Some items are not listed on eBay or Bricklink, therefore I had to estimate my own prices mostly based off of previous sales. A LOT MORE TO COME! I'm clearing out almost an entire 100% complete Super Hero/Marvel/Batman collection. There are minifigures, polybags, and sets (NIB) galore. The minifigures are either loose or come in gorgeous plastic cases with a comic backdrop. I haven't had a chance to go through and inventory everything yet, so stay tuned. I've posted a few pictures of the polybag/minifigure offerings to come in the next few weeks at the end of this post.Items: #sh028 + #sh027 NYTF Iron Man and Captain America Mint PM for Info #41491-1 SDCC 2016 Brick Heads 41491 Batman and Joker no 0984 Mint 155 #41492-1 SDCC 2016 Brick Heads 41492 Iron Man and Captain America no 0894 Mint 190 #41493-1 SDCC 2016 Brick Heads 41493 Black Panther and Dr. Strange no 1363 Mint 145 #41490-1 SDCC 2016 Brick Heads 41490 Superman and Wonder Woman no 0590 Mint 165 #comcon050-1 SDCC 2016 ATOM Mint 195 #comcon029-1 SDCC 2016 Steve Rogers Mint 245 #comcon048-1 SDCC 2015 Throne of Ultron no 0380 Mint 140 #comcon047-1 SCDD 2015 Action Comics #1 Superman no 0981 Mint 330 #comcon045-1 SDCC 2015 Arsenal Mint 200 #comcon046-1 SDCC 2015 Sam Wilson Captain America Mint 220 #comcon034-1 SDCC 2014 Rocket Raccoon's Warbird no 0413 Mint 220 #comcon035-1 SDCC 2014 The Collector AFA 8.5 Stan Lee 800 #comcon037-1 SDCC 2014 Batman Classic TV Series Batmobile no 0127 Mint 400 #comcon036-1 SDCC 2014 Batman Zur-En-Arrh Mint 490 #comcon028-1 SDCC 2013 Spiderman Mint 2800 #comcon027-1 SDCC 2013 Spider Woman Mint 2000 #comcon030-1 SDCC 2013 Green Arrow Mint 1600 #comcon029-1 SDCC 2013 Black Superman Mint 1450 #comcon013-1 SDCC 2011 Green Lantern NM 300 #comcon014-1 SDCC 2011 Batman NM 750 #comcon020-1 SDCC 2012 Shazaam NM 400 #comcon022-1 SDCC 2012 Bizzaro NM 400 #comcon021-1 SDCC 2012 Phoenix NM 400 #comcon023-1 SDCC 2012 Black Spiderman NM 350 #comcon018-1 NYCC 2011 Batman AFA 9.0 850 #comcon017-1 NYCC 2011 Superman AFA 9.0 1200 #comcon052-1 NYCC 2016 Batgirl Mint $30 #comcon038-1 SDCC Bard the Bowman NM $65 #comcon040-1 SDCC Unikitty NM $110 #comcon049-1 SDCC Bionicle Skull Scorpio Mask NM $35 Thanks for reading.Again, please stay tuned for a nearly complete collection of NIB Super Hero/Marvel/Batman sets, other sets, and more rare items.Thanks,Samuel
  4. Another year, another Comic Con, and as you probably know, TLG always likes to sell exclusive sets at these cons which are very popular. However, they are not the only exclusives being sold there. Another hugely popular SDCC exclusive are Funko's POP! vinyl figures. They are stylish, adorable representations of characters from various licenses. There are hundreds of them and collectors can't get enough of them. So, for this year's San Diego Comic Con, TLG seems to have decided to appeal to both LEGO and Funko fans by debuting their upcoming Brickheadz, a series of brick-built figures in a similar style to the POP! figs, just blockier. I was able to acquire one of the four sets that were available while I was at the con and it contains the stars of the latest Marvel blockbuster, Captain America: Civil War. So, do Lego bricks and the vinyl figure style go well together or do they clash like the two Marvel heroes did in the movie? Lets find out! Set Number: 41492 Name: Iron Man & Captain America Theme: Brickheadz Subtheme: Marvel Super Heroes Year of Release: 2016 Pieces: 184 Minifigs: 0 Price: $39.99 USD Links: Brickset Bricklink Before we begin, I would like to tell you about my experience at San Diego Comic Con. I have been going to this convention and its sister convention, Wondercon, for the past 3 years. I always enjoy it a lot as it is great to get together with other nerds and just geek out about the things you love. You can see everyone's cosplays, meet artists and celebrities, get sneak peeks for upcoming media, watch world premiere cartoons, and get neat stuff! However, with every passing year I have been noticing how increasingly crowded it has gotten, and the more crowded it got, the less enjoyable it has become. The first time I went to SDCC, I had no problem walking around, getting exclusives, and getting into the panels I wanted to see (except for the Marvel/DC ones in Hall H - those have always had a notoriously long line). But within just three years it has gotten to the point where navigating the exhibit hall is virtually impossible without pushing your way through masses of warm, sweaty people and you have to get in line for exclusives and panels multiple hours in advance to even stand a chance to enter them. I spent most of my time just standing in line in the hot summer sun and most of the time the exclusives were sold out or the panel was already over by the time I got halfway through the line, so I walked away with nothing but a bad sunburn and had to try my luck at the next line. The line for the exclusive minifigs stretched from one end of the convention center to the other and the worst thing is that most of the people were scalpers who were only there so they could sell them for ridiculous prices later. So while the panels and booths that I did get to see were great, I definitely think that TLG and the whole Comic Con team need to organize this event better somehow. Needless to say, I will think twice before I attempt to get an exclusive next time, if I even go at all. That said, after getting in line at 4 in the morning, getting lucky in the raffle, and standing in another line at the Lego booth to buy it for forty bucks, I did manage to get this set as a souvenir, so lets open this bad boy! The Box The set comes in a thick, shiny box which is much more sturdy than your average Lego box. The background transitions from a yellow/orange gradient on Iron Man's side to a black/red gradient on Captain America's side via a dot pattern which gives it that comic book feel. At the top of the front there is a big LEGO BRICKHEADZ logo and a little circle letting you know that this is a SDCC 2016 exclusive. Thanks yellow circle! I never would have guessed! The Brickheadz logo is a bit bland and the Z instead of an S seems a bit corny, but it's cute how they stylized the H to look like a Brickhead. On the bottom, there is the Marvel logo and labels for the two Brickheadz included in the set accompanied by a little icon for each of them which is a nice touch. The backside has a similar layout with the same logos, but what's fun is that the Brickheadz are shown from their backside here. It also features a picture that assures you that the figures are indeed removable from their base, and instead of the labels there is a bunch of legal mumbo jumbo. The sides of the box continue the theme of showing the Brickheadz as if the box was see-through by showing Iron Man's right-hand side on the left side of the box and Cap's left-hand side on the right. Even on top of the box you see the top of the "headz" of the Brickheadz. However, on the bottom you don't see the bottom of the figs. It's just black and there is a fancy tape stretching across it with the Brickheadz logo and a shadowy impression of the eyes of a Brickhead printed on it. Now I'm going to do something that is probably unthinkable for all those scalpers at SDCC: I'm actually going to open and build this Lego set! The way you open the box is you cut the tape at the bottom and slide the cover off. Contents The box contains one instructions booket and one parts bag for each Brickhead. Much like the box, the bags are not the usual kind. You don't need to rip them open as they have an easy to open flap on the back. They also each have a sticker with some mysterious numbers on it. This is the first page of both of the instruction booklets. It shows both of the SDCC exclusive Marvel Brickheadz sets together on the left side and a teaser image for the upcoming Brickheadz line on the right which confirms the release date of the theme to be March 1st, 2017. The instructions are presented on a solid black background which provides a nice contrast and gives you the sophisticated feeling that you are putting together a collectible display item rather than a kids toy. The callouts are clear and the build is very simple as it only involves some basic SNOT. Good news! There are no stickers in this set! All the decals are printed, giving us a nice assortment of exclusive parts. The most notable printed piece is the black 2x4 tile with the Lego logo and the hashtag "LEGOSDCC" which there are two of in the set. It bugs me a little that they put a hashtag onto the set itself as it seems like a blatant attempt to get social media exposure for the event, but at least it marks it as an SDCC exclusive. Aside from Cap and Tony's torso and helmet pieces, there is also the new Brickheadz eye tile and Iron Man's eye tiles which are trans-light-blue 1x1 tiles with a simple white square printed on it. As always, the light printing on dark parts is not very strong, so things like the "LEGO" and "A" fonts are not as white as they could be. There are also some new recolors in this set such as the 1x2 plate with clip in red and the 1x1 round tile with small tube in white. The trans-clear stud with handle from the latest Spider-Man sets is included as well. Now we know where Spidey got that new web-shooter tech from. Assembling the Avengers You can start the build with either one of the Brickheadz. I'd like to build these in alphabetical order, so let's start with the guy who has a big "A" on his forehead. The parts contained in the bag for Captain America are the following. You start the build from the waste up and add the legs later on as you've seen on the sample instructions page earlier. Two round bricks serve as a center support for the torso. All of the SNOT is achieved by using the double brick with four studs on the side which was introduced earlier this year. The inner walls of the head are entirely comprised of them. What's funny is that in the center of the head they included a 2x2 brick in pink so that it looks like there is a brick-shaped brain inside of the brick-headz. Well played, designers. Here is the finished Captain. He looks quite adorable with that big head and glissening eyes. It's interesting that they made the highlights in his eyes square to stick with the brick theme of these figures. Next up is Iron Man. He has a few more parts as you can see in the lineup below. Iron Man's torso is similar to Cap's, but it's more intricate as it uses a lot of headlight bricks to attach his armor plating (or should I say tiling?). The inner structure is the same, including the brain brick which is the same size as that of any other Brickhead. I guess Tony is not so smart after all. After you add the plates around the head and add the legs, you're finished! Iron Man looks quite good with his armor tiles and repulsor beams, and the trans-light-blue showing around the eyes gives them that blue glow that they have in the movies which is an effect that the minifig version has yet to achieve. My only gripe is that the red strip on his forehead is interrupted by a yellow line, but that's excusable. The Completed Set Don't they look adorable together? It's hard to imagine these little guys starting a civil war. Both of them are based on their comic counterparts, so their costumes look very colorful, especially when standing next to each other. As you can see looking at them from the front, the boost from Iron Man's jet boots makes him stand one plate taller than Cap and all the other Brickheadz. Also, the use of tiles on his chest and slopes on his shoulders give the impression that he is wearing armor. The printing on both of their faces and torsos is very minimalist, but works with the simplified look that they're going for. For comparison, here is a picture of Funko's POP! versions of these characters. They look quite similar, don't they? TLG is not even trying to hide the fact that they are copying Funko's style. Captain America looks almost the same and the only difference on Iron Man is the use of standard black eyes (although they did use white eyes in the later movie versions of the character). I like how they used that white claw piece to represent the little wings on Cap's helmet. I can see them using the same technique for the Flash. I also like the way Iron Man holds his repulsor beams. This trans-clear stud with handle is a very useful part and I hope they use the same technique for the Iron Man minifig in future sets. Like in the comics, the printing on Cap's costume is exactly the same on the back as it is in the front. It's a bit lazy, but it's nice to see that he does have printing here, unlike Iron Man who is completely blank. They already printed so many parts in this set, so it would have been nice if they would have just printed these two tiles too. Cap's shield-holding hand is different from his left hand as it uses the 1x2 plate variant with the clip on the short side rather than the long side. This is supposed to give the arm an angled look which sort of works, although it does look a bit awkward. I should also mention that they are obviously top-heavy, especially Iron Man, so they tend to fall over backwards when they are not standing on a flat surface. However, this can be fixed by mounting them onto the center of their base. When I first saw these, I was hoping that their heads and arms were mounted on turntables so that you could pose them a little bit like you can with the Funko POPs, but alas this is not the case. They have zero points of articulation, making them decidedly more display items than toys. Here they are compared to their minifig counterparts. As you can see, they are about twice the size of a minifigure. Ratings Design: 5/5 - I think both of these figures look great. The designers managed to replicate the cute vinyl figure look fairly well while putting their own blocky spin on it, and the pink "brain" brick is a nice touch. Build: 2/5 - A very quick and easy build with nothing special aside from some basic SNOT. Nothing challenging. Playability: 1/5 - The Brickheadz don't have any articulation or play features, so they are clearly meant to be displayed rather than played with. Although the fact that the set includes two characters who have quite a history in both the comics and movies does allow for some role play. Parts: 4/5 - Most of the bricks included here are fairly common, but they're useful nonetheless. Some of the parts are exclusive to the set and all decals are printed which is always nice to see, although the lack of printing on Iron Man's back armor is disappointing. Price: 1/5 - I know I don't really have a right to complain since most people have to pay extortion prices on ebay to get these, but $40 for just 184 pieces is way too high already for me. When these are officially released, I hope that they cost only half as much or less. Overall: 3/5 - I have never bought a vinyl figure since I try to limit myself to collecting only one type of toy (#Lego4Life ), but I do see the charm that people see in them, so when it was announced that Lego will be making their own Funko-style figures, I was quite excited. While I don't think that Lego will become a serious competitor to Funko and other real vinyl figures, I do think that these Brickheadz are pretty cool on their own. Kids might not be interested in them due to their lack of playability, but some adult collectors like myself might find them charming. That said, I do not recommend getting this set, especially at aftermarket prices. It's just too much money for two little figures that might get released for a much more reasonable price in about half a year. The only special thing about it is the packaging and the hashtag-tiles. The only reason I got it was that I didn't want to leave the con empty-handed. In conclusion, while the process of acquiring these wasn't much fun and I payed more for them than I would've liked, I don't regret getting them as they do look rather nice and I look forward to see what TLG will do with this theme. I really like the Brickheadz style and might even build some of my own! I hope you enjoyed this review, and since it's the trendy thing to do this year, I added a poll above where you can vote for your favorite superhero, so go and vote! It's sure to be an easier choice than the presidential election this year. To end this review, there are so many jokes that could be made with these, but I'll settle for this one:
  5. Hi, I've been looking to buy parts for the 2015 SDCC Action Comics #1 set. Upon my research I've noticed that the part with Design Number 98281 (Green Wedge 6 x 4 x 2/3 Quad Curved) only appears in this set. How is it possible that a part is a convention exclusive? And will it ever be released in a widely available set? It's baffling to me that TLG would do this.

  7. I have started collecting every single minifigures produced by Lego for superheroes theme including the old Batman/Spiderman sets and exclusive minifigures from SDCC and ToyFair, etc. I think I am at around 98% complete. I wondered if anyone has done the same and how do you display them? Any advice on getting hard-to-find minifigures?
  8. Dear LEGO Group, I have been a life-long fan of LEGO. My son and daughter are both LEGO fans. I am writing to you regarding the SDCC Exclusive Minifigures. This "Exclusive" system is really making your fans feel "Excluded". This system of distribution is extremely unfair on at least five levels: 1) Not everyone (in fact the vast, vast majority of LEGO customers) can or will ever be able to attend the SDCC. 2) The fact that the SDCC Exclusive Minifigures never gets released into general circulation means that they will always be targeted by scalpers -- people who have nothing to do with LEGO, are not loyal customers of LEGO but are simply leeches looking to exploit a supply / demand dislocation and turn it into pure, greedy profit. 3) The net effect is that the limited availability for these minifigures (already scarce to begin with) becomes even more scarce and the simple supply / demand forces pushes the prices to astronomical levels (hundreds of dollars, sometimes thousands) on the secondary markets. 4) This ends up rewarding the absolute wrong segment (i.e. scalping non-LEGO fans) -- while the vast majority of LEGO fans worldwide end up feeling very frustrated and unappreciated for their loyalty. For example, the SDCC Exclusive system has rewarded the lucky few with 2 different Spider-Man variants in as many years (Symbiote and ASM2), meanwhile, 99.99% of loyal LEGO Marvel fans have had 8 straight sets with the same ultimate Spider-Man minifigure -- absolutely no variants during that time. It has left many of us wondering what we have done to deserve such poor treatment? 5) For "completists" or collectors who wish to have every minifigure of a certain line (for me that would be the MARVEL Super Heroes line) my choices are very stark: 1) I either have to prepare to spend thousands of dollars for a few minifigures (at least hundreds per minifigure) or 2) I will simply have to accept that my collection will never be complete. SUGGESTED SOLUTIONS 1) Cease the SDCC Exclusive system 2) If after due consideration, TLG feels compelled to continue the SDCC Exclusive system, then at least rotate all of these minifigures into general circulation through future sets (even if it 1 or 2 years down the road). This will solve the issue of scarcity (and hence ridiculous hoarding and scalping of exclusive minifigures) and thus bring down the crazy secondary prices -- thereby effectively eliminating scalpers. And more importantly, your loyal customers get access to these minifigures at a reasonable price. [EDIT #1] 3) In addition to 2), perhaps TLG can offer (in due time -- or even alongside the events) the minifigures online. As some of the replies have suggested within this thread, many companies who offer SDCC items also provide the ability for customers to purchase them online (again, this is another method for addressing the issue of scalpers and outrageous secondary pricing). [EDIT #2] 4) Another excellent suggestion made by a fellow thread contributor is to make all SDCC exclusives very specific to each SDCC going forward (similar to the I NY LOVE Yoda). For example, each exclusive figure could be printed with an SDCC 2015 logo for next year (and for each year going forward). This way Convention goers can maintain the "exclusivity" and grab some Convention swag / goodies -- while the rest of us won't feel "excluded" and feel that we are missing an absolute crucial missing piece for their respective collection. [FINAL THOUGHTS] My main message to the LEGO Group is simply this: currently, the SDCC "Exclusive" system has left a lot of your loyal customers feeling "excluded" and this, in the end, runs counter to everything that LEGO should stand for -- products based on "building" and sharing that truly bring people together not pull them apart. Thank you for listening. From a loyal LEGO family.
  9. This year is not only the 6th anniversary of the Eurobricks Reviewers Academy, but also Batman's 75th Anniversary! Therefore, it only makes sense that TLG chose to give out a version of Batman from the Dark Knight's long and rich history as one of their exclusives at the San Diego Comic Con this year, and I was lucky enough to get one. But is it a good minifig? Is it worth buying for ridiculous prices on the aftermarket? And what the heck is Zur-En-Arrh? Let's find out! To the Bat-review! Set Number: SDCC036 (on Brickset) Name: Batman of Zur-En-Arrh Theme: DC Comics Super Heroes Subtheme: Batman Pieces: 6 Year of Release: 2014 Availability: Given away at SDCC 2014 on Saturday, July 26 at 12:30 pm. The Package The package is the same clear plastic clam shell with a bubble for the minifig as all the other exclusive minifigs from this and last year. It features a nice stylized picture of the minifig in the background and the "San Diego Comic Con International 2014 Exclusive" logo in the lower left corner. The back features the address of the Super Heroes product page on Lego.com and the usual small print. Like last year, the card board insert is folded and includes a picture on the inside. However, this year the picture is not a backdrop to display the minifig on, but instead it's a mini-poster of the minifig. While it may not be as useful, the stylized illustration of Batman of Zur-En-Arrh does look pretty cool. I just wish it would have depicted him in a more interesting pose than just angrily standing in the rain. The fact that it looks like he's wearing purple diapers doesn't really help. The Minifigure And here is the minifig itself. He is quite a friendly-looking fellow, isn't he? His costume is bright and colorful. Why? . It's great to get Batman's cowl in a new color, and this is the only Batman aside from the Electro Suit one to receive leg printing. I still don't understand why TLG is being so stingy with those. It's disappointing, though, that they changed the cape from a purple Batman cape (as seen in the official image above) to a regular one. What you may not know is that there are actually two different versions of Batman of Zur-En-Arrh. The first one appeared in a comic in 1958 titled "Batman - The Superman of Planet X!" in which Earth's Batman is transported to a planet called Zur-En-Arrh where he gets Superman-like powers. Yup, that happened. This sort of what-if story was actually quite common for comics in the '50s. This story was later adapted into an episode of Batman: The Brave And The Bold. Anyhoo, once Batman arrives on Zur-En-Arrh, he meets that planet's version of Batman, a scientist named Tlano, which is who this minifig is based on. Image courtesy of the DC Comics Database The second version appeared in Grant Morrison's "Batman R.I.P." storyline in 2008, after the DC Multiverse got rebooted. This was a much more gritty take on Batman of Zur-En-Arrh. I didn't read the comic myself, so all my knowledge of it is based on what I read about it on wikis and reviews of it, so don't quote me on this, but basically, this is a version of Batman who has gone off the deep end. He got druged and brainwashed by an evil organization so that his mind shuts down when he hears the trigger phrase "Zur-En-Arrh". In order to protect himself from this, he creates an alter ego called the Batman of Zur-En-Arrh by removing the Bruce Wayne part of his mind, leaving only a crazed Batman who runs around the city violently hunting down the criminals that tried to destroy him. So yeah, perfect material to base a Lego figure on. Image courtesy of DCU Comic Book Reviews In order to represent both versions, TLG was generous enough to give this minifig a double-sided head, one side with the Tlano face, and the other with the crazy Bruce Wayne face. Also, this is the first SDCC exclusive minifig to get an accessory, not counting Bard the Bowman since he's not really exclusive. The Bat comes with, well, a bat ironically, which is one of the weapons that he used to torture and defeat the villains with. The fig also has some nice back printing. You can clearly see that in one of the pockets in his utility belt, Batman of Zur-En-Arrh is carrying the Bat-Radia, which is a nice touch. The Bat-Radia is a device that can issue electronic molecules that cause controlled disturbances in the atmosphere - or just an old radio that can override Arkham's security system - depending on which version you're talking about. Here is a look at the head without the cowl. Tlano's face is pretty much the usual Batman head, except with a big happy smile, which fits the campy tone of the comic that he is from. Bruce Wayne's face on the other hand is very different. This one features a stubble and a maniacal snarling mouth. What I especially like is that his headband is tattered, which fits the grittier look of this version of Batman of Zur-En-Arrh and is a nice touch. Final Thoughts: I think this is a perfect Comic Con exclusive. It's a fairly obscure variation of a popular character that only true comic fans will know. And it's a character that we have gotten more than plenty of in normal sets, so unless you really want this particular version of Batman, there are many other ways you can get the Dark Knight. Plus it's a great way to celebrate the Caped Crusader's 75th anniversary. It is a very nice and detailed fig, and the fact that you can switch between two versions of the character with the flick of a wrist makes it especially awesome. My only gripe is that they used the wrong kind of cape, but it doesn't detract from the fig too much and the fact that they included an accessory kinda makes up for that. The packaging is nice too, although the mini-poster is kind of pointless. The only ones who would actually use that poster are little kids, and only about 1% of these sets will probably land in the hands of kids unfortunately. Still, it's better than nothing I suppose. This was a great souvenir to take home from SDCC, but if you didn't get it at the convention, I would only recommend buying it if you are a hardcore completist or a huge fan of Batman who actually knows what Zur-En-Arrh is. And no, you can't have mine, sorry. That's all there is to say about it. To conclude this review, since bashing in bad guy heads is too violent for Lego's usual standard, here is a more kid-friendly scenario to play out with Batman and his Bat-bat: Batterman by Oky - Space Ranger, on Flickr I hope you enjoyed this special review, and tune in for my next review - same Oky-time, same Oky-channel!
  10. Hi All, Honestly, I'd really prefer to keep this to cash only (I'll buy your figures), but I'm willing to trade if that's the absolute only way you'll do the deal :o) I'm looking for the following: SDCC/NYCC 2011- Green Lantern SDCC/NYCC 2011- Batman SDCC 2012- Shazam SDCC 2012- Bizarro SDCC 2012- Phoenix SDCC 2012- Black Spiderman I have to trade: SDCC 2013 Green Arrow SDCC 2013 Spiderman SDCC 2013 Spiderwoman SDCC 2014 Batman SDCC 2014 Bard SDCC 2014 Unikitty SDCC 2014 The Collector SDCC 2014 Rocket Raccoon's Warbird SDCC 2014 Batmobile SDCC 2014 Ghost Ship I'll ship WW or in the US.

  11. I recreated the SDCC 1966 Batmobile from the one picture that is available, and than extended it to it's proper size. The included figs are the ones from the Juniors set. I have no clue what the real back looks like, so I guessed... if anyone has it could they please take a shot of the back of the model? Thanks in advance! I'm 99% sure Batman and Robin will fit... the cape won't allow me to put them in their spots in LDD. LDD file: http://www.mocpages....1406164535m.lxf What do you think?

    Between us we probably own a lot of the exclusive SDCC and NYCC figs. There seems to be a lot of uncertainty over how many there are of each figure. If we all say what we have, we can probably work out the real numbers by adding ebay and BL inventory, which I think would be helpful. So, I'll go first. I own 1 NYCC Iron Man 1 NYCC Shadow Leonardo 1 NYCC Kraang 2 SDCC Pheonix 2 SDCC Shazam 1 SDCC Bizarro 1 SDCC Venom 1 SDCC Green Lantern 1 SDCC Batman (TDK) 1 SDCC ASM Spiderman 1 SDCC Green Arrow 1 SDCC Black Superman What else do we have on EB?
