Title: Lego
Post by: Michael M on April 05, 2015, 05:35:15 AM
So I probably shouldn't ask this, cause then if I start getting answers I'll start going in the direction of adding another type of collectible to the list of things I o collect...but anyways...

While wandering around at the philly show this weekend, there were a couple of vendors that had individual lego figs...now, as much as I know, the only way to get individual figures is to buy the sets that have other things (like the GotG set gets you the ship you need to build, along with a couple figs)...the figures aren't available on their own.

So, do these vendors just buy boxes and boxes of these sets, and then just sell the individual figures?

Thanks for the n00b question. - M

Yep there is a big industry for busting up sets and farming out the pieces / minifigures.

Are these figures carded?  Carded single figures are available in the SDCC Lego lottery.  Each day there is a raffle for carded exclusive figures during Comic-Con.  The lines are crazy long.

Individual figures are also available in blind packages at retail.

Post by: Michael M on April 05, 2015, 08:02:23 PM
They weren't carded, just individual figs out on display.  I should have taken pictures.  So silly question...how does one know if they're genuine, if they're not in any packaging?  I was looking specifically at the Marvel ones.

i ran into a guy selling lego at the Boston Comic Con today.  I posted the pick i took in the booth in the BCC thread. http://friendsofcc.com/forum/index.php?topic=4104.msg130659#msg130659

they were $5 each.  on further chatting with the guy he was very clear that they were not genuine lego's but by a china knock off.  they looked and felt just like lego mini fig.

I actually bought some of the knockoffs in Malaysia last year.  They come individually packed in a fake lego box with a generic knockoff lego logo.  They do come close to lego quality but you can tell the difference when you hold them.

Lego also sells individual minifigures in blind bags. They are up to the 14th Series of those now. Each series has 16 figures and they cost $3-$4 each depending on where you buy them. Sometimes they will sell a minifigure on it's own in a polybag, that's how I got my Rocket Raccoon minifigure. He was just on an endcap at Toys R Us one weekend when I was there.

I dabble in minifigure collecting. I probably have about 100 of them.

Lol, I only keep 32 of them in rotating display. The rest are bagged and in a storage container in the closet. I do have a lot of toys on display though.  My friend brought his kid over and said.,"woah, don't touch anything, this is like a toy museum" ahahaha

Here's my display, it's usually whatever I last bought. Though the top one has been Lego Movie for a while.

Barnes & Noble is wrapping out their promotions for The LEGO Batman Movie and for their last event for the movie is a building event for a mini Batmobile. This exclusive version of the Speedwagon is different from the 30521 polybag so if you want to collect everthing for the movie, you should participate in the event. The Make & Take event is held next Saturday, March 11. The times vary so you will have to find out what time a particular store will be holding the event.

At the finale for our three-month celebration of The LEGO Batman Movie, kids will be able to help Batman protect Gotham from the Joker by making their very own LEGO Batman Speedwagon! Kids can also collect the final two limited edition trading cards featuring characters from the movie. Join us for this fun LEGO Make & Take event (while supplies last).

Great news for the hunt, from http://www.thebrickfan.com/lego-brand-stores-to-start-carrying-store-exclusive-sets/

Quote
Have you walked into a LEGO Store looking for a particular set but end up finding out that it is an exclusive set to another store? One example is The Penguin Arctic Roller (70911) which is actually a Target exclusive so you can only find that set there.

After many customer complaints, what I am hearing is that there will no longer be store exclusives and LEGO Stores will start carrying all the sets from a particular wave. This means that stores like Target, Walmart, and Toys R Us will no longer be the place to go for one set. Of course you can buy the set on [email protected] but if you’re already at a LEGO Store, why wait for shipping on it.

There’s no word on when the change will take effect but I’m already seeing the Arkham Asylum (70912) at LEGO Stores which was previously a Toys R Us exclusive.

Limited edition, collectible LEGO® Star Wars™ VIP Card

Get your special edition membership card when you buy the Millennium Falcon™ (75192) and enjoy a full year of LEGO® Star Wars™ themed benefits!

Who is eligible for the LEGO® Star Wars™ VIP Card?

All VIP Members that purchase the Millennium Falconâ„¢ (75192), including members signing up for the first time. This includes all countries VIP operates in, including countries that don’t normally receive physical membership cards. For country list, please see VIP.LEGO.com/terms.

How will I receive my card?

The card will be sent via postal mail - please note that cards are not available in Brand Retail Stores. These will also be sent via post to ensure they're personalised and if applicable, linked to a pre-existing account. This means that all previously earned points will be available on the new card and it will already be activated. The original account will need to be fully registered by December 31, 2017.

What does the card do?

Card holders will still receive all standard VIP benefits, in addition, they'll be eligible for a full year of special Star Wars-themed offers throughout 2018.

What are the special offers that this card entitles a member to?

Special offers will include points promotions, special events, gifts with purchase and more! The offers will be shared directly with applicable VIPs throughout 2018.

Will the VIP Number on this card be different from my regular VIP card?

Existing members will keep their existing number. It will be printed on both their original card and the Star Warsâ„¢ collectible one. They can be used interchangeably.

Can I obtain this card without purchasing the Millennium Falconâ„¢ (75192)?

Unfortunately not. This card is meant as a special gift with the purchase of the Millennium Falconâ„¢ (75192).

Why can’t I have my card right when I purchase the Millennium Falconâ„¢ (75192) in a LEGO® Brand Retail Store?

This is to ensure the card is linked to any existing VIP accounts and personalized with the member's name, they need to be custom-printed, which is not possible at the Store.

How long is the card available for?

The collectible card is a limited-time offer until 12/31, or while stocks last.

How long will it take to receive the card?

It can take up to 6 weeks after purchase of the Millennium Falconâ„¢ (75192) to receive the card.

In an unexpected surprise, the LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192) is now available again on [email protected] in Europe and Australia for VIPs. As of this writing, it is still available for purchase but you have to be signed in to your account. This is probably the last chance to get it this year and also score the exclusive black VIP card. There’s still no word on when the US will have it available again.

Quote
Last year around this time, 99 Cents Only Stores started carrying various LEGO Dimensions including Fun Packs and Team Packs. It looks like they’re doing it again this year as a number of stores around the country are selling them again for only $1.99 each which is a great deal on some retired and soon to be retired expansion packs. All of the packs are still currently working even though LEGO Dimensions has been officially cancelled but there will be no new content. It seems that the 99 Cents stores have different inventories so I can say for sure which store has what so you’ll have to check out what your location has.

Sometimes i wish lego stuff was a lil cheaper then what they cost for reals. they done so many so i guessing it not easy to come up with new ones cause of all they have done they had get permission or get through copyright hassles to create lego stuff based on those properties and all. so guess the cost helps to cover they they spend on buying rights and keep all on track overall.  saw more lego funpacks i wanted and got some more from 99 cent store by chance of any i wanted and didnt have lol. more i wanted but wont crazy the crazy prices toys us want u to pay just for a fun pack and saw same hassles with target with hi price reg or clearance they assume i guess if u like them so much u willing to pay whatever they want to get any u want lol. so i can wait since waited this long to get any since not buy alot lol. maybe more later if decent price and all later.

Onion #1 (Kass) had his first day at Legoland and  after training, he took a stroll and was taking a photo of a skeleton in the master builders window. One of the people inside remembered meeting him at orientation and waved him in. He got to see them working on the Chinese Theatre. The galhe was speaking to made a bunch of the Star Wars builds and showed him a true Lego sphere vs a sphere from the web. And that's why they are master builders. Super impressive. So this tour he got is supposedly not typical and he was blown away. I can hear him in his room building his name tag.

Yeah! He was told no bigger than FOURTEEN INCHES!!!! I said he must have heard wrong. No way, that would be a chest plate. He was told only put figures on his badge he's willing to trade and never wear Darth Vader, he will be gone in 2 seconds. Wardrobe give them pieces to build a figure to trade. That's so cool! Photo coming soon.

Ready to form Voltron! Accepted by LEGO Ideas in 2017, the popular mecha from the original 80's Voltron will soon be available to purchase! Premiering at San Diego Comic-Con (and then widely on August 1), this set will have 2,321 pieces and, according to LEGO, is the biggest buildable LEGO mech ever. It will retail for $179.99! We've got some images below for the set and it is beyond impressive.

We've also got some details for the set which you can read below. Voltron fans, this one looks like it won't disappoint!

-Features 5 buildable and posable lions that can be transformed and combined to create the giant Voltron super robot.

-Play with the lions individually or combine them using extra-strong joints to form Voltron—the black lion forms the head and torso; the red and green lions form the arms; and the yellow and blue lions form the legs.

-Pose the head, shoulders, arms and wrists of Voltron (legs are not posable).

-Also includes a sword and shield (each with silver-colored elements) that attach firmly to Voltron’s hands.

-Includes a booklet with building instructions, plus information about the set’s fan creator and super force of LEGO® designers.

-Display or play out exciting stories from the original 1980s animated Voltron TV series and the modern DreamWorks Voltron: Legendary Defender series.

-Voltron measures over 15” (40cm) high, 5” (14cm) long and 8” (21cm) wide.

-Black lion measures over 6” (17cm) high, 8” (22cm) long and 5” (15cm) wide.

-Yellow and blue lions each measure over 3” (8cm) high, 8” (21cm) long and 3” (8cm) wide.

-Green and red lions each measure over 3” (8cm) high, 7” (18cm) long and 1” (5cm) wide.

-Voltron’s sword measures 11” (29cm) long.

-Voltron’s shield measures 6” (16cm) in diameter.

This is a dream come true for old school Voltron fans so make sure to pick one up at SDCC if you can!



WIN!

San Diego Comic-Con is less than a month away, and as we've come to expect LEGO will have a presence there. In advance of the show, TLG is announcing two new sets based on Overwatch in their continued partnership with Blizzard Entertainment. 75976 Wrecking Ball and 75977 Junkrat & Roadhog take more iconic characters from the game and convert them into LEGO form, with interesting designs and a bevy of new pieces (like orange Hordika necks!). LEGO is also going to be hosting a Twitch Rivals Overwatch tournament on July 25th and providing a special prize for the winner! You'll be able to see the sets at SDCC and buy them in October, but if you can't wait until then, check out the high-res images and read all about the next wave right now

Here's The Onions name tag. Isn't it cool?!Legoland now has an etching machine, which is how the Nuka Cola part was done. Then he used something to fill in the white. I thought he should destress it a bit. He's going to put a "bottle" inside too.(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190628/71d8a9d787f9d90bdc3d4a120b0c4f9b.jpg)

The LEGO Group Launches New Online Safety Initiative

July 21, 2020 | Toy Association member the LEGO Group has launched a new Small Builds for Big Conversations initiative, which offers families a series of creative challenges to engage in conversations about being a good digital citizen and the importance of online safety.

LEGO has released nine free ‘Build and Talk’ activities to provide parents with simple, fun ways to talk to children ages six to 10 about digital safety and well-being through play. From The Online Explorers to The Watch-Outs, the characters built from LEGO bricks represent both the positive and negative aspects of life online.

“Safety is the No. 1 priority of The Toy Association, and just as it important for kids to play safely in their own backyards, it’s equally important for families to ensure safe play online,” said Leigh Moyers, senior manager of federal government affairs. “This is a perfect example of how our members are taking creative steps to encourage parents to have important conversations with their children about digital safety and citizenship.”

The Toy Association and its Children’s Online Safety Committee continue to be actively involved in state and federal policy discussions concerning children’s online privacy and safety including the Federal Trade Commission’s initiatives to update the 2013 Children’s Online Privacy Protection Rule (COPPA); legislative proposals to create a federal data privacy framework; and the recent enforcement of California’s Consumer Privacy Act. It has also developed a variety of COPPA compliance tools and training materials for Toy Association members over the years.

IDK; the first year LEGO did the lotto I scored a minifig for the first time ever: minimal waiting in line, minimal work, etc.  In past years I 'failed' with the (essentially) in-person "lotto" draw.  I guess if you approach the whole thing as 'icing on the Comic-Con cake,' and not 'I _REALLY HAVE_ to score a free minifig' then I suspect this is a MUCH better system for most fans.  Both systems have (had) their flaws & strengths, it's all about perspective/mindset, I think

I had grabbed a minifig the first time in line (I think if I remember correctly it was with @alyssa (https://www.friendsofcc.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=1) and @Mario Wario (https://www.friendsofcc.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=2389))..I even think the fig was...DC atom?  I can't remember back that far, haha
