Yesterday was our first experience at Comic-Con. While I saw a ton of stuff, I learned a little about attending Comic-Con.
Get there early.
We got there about 11:00 am and headed straight to the Lego display only to discover there were no more minifigs to hunt down and the minifig raffle was on Friday (we only had tickets to Thursday) We didn’t even get to see the exclusive minifigs they were giving away. We headed over to the Mattel booth so my daughter could get the Monster High exclusive doll.
So, if you are going to SDCC to get anything, get there early. Although I did score some Walking Dead Minimates which I will go over this weekend. Now, to what you clicked on this blog to see:
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Gathering is priced at $59.99 and will be released in December. The minifigures are the same ones ( Gandalf, Dwalin, Bombur, Bofur, Bilbo, and Balin.) that we already saw in my last post. The set is a pretty cool representation of Bag End and with 6 minifigs, you get a bunch of play value. I love the fence component and the fact that they got the round Hobbit door pretty much correct.
Inside Bilbo’s house we see a big table with some food on it. We also see what looks to be a new piece: a pretzel! Other than that, it’s pretty sparse. The tiles on the floor appear to be maps of some sort.
Other than that, there wasn’t a ton of news yesterday. It looks like there is a bunch of news going on today. Head on over to FBTB.net to see the reveals from today.
One last thing, head on over to our Flickr page to check out some more pics of the Lego booth.
