It looked as thought LEGO took all their Comic Con DC exclusive  and put it up for this event. Box and set very reminiscent of Comic Con sets.
Looks like the DC set preorder is over at Lego.com

The Walmart preorder still live, though Walmart and preorders don't always harmonize.

LEGO originally planned to release the LEGO DC Wonder Woman 77906 set at San Diego Comic-Con 2020 as a tie-in for the upcoming film Wonder Woman 1984. However, when the event was cancelled, the release was shifted to the DC FanDome event last weekend. The set briefly went up for pre-order here at LEGO.com, but has since been deactivated in favor of Walmart, who now have the set up for pre-order right here as an exclusive priced at $39.99 with shipping slated for October 1st. The situation is similar to the LEGO Star Wars Bespin Duel set that was released earlier this week.

Available for preorder:

I viewed both events. It was originally going to be on August 22 and feature a Hall of Heroes with the main panels and a bunch of on-demand content, but they decided to move all the on-demand content to September 12. The Hall of Heroes on Aug. 22 featured a single stream for 8 hours which repeated twice.

The August 22 edition felt very cohesive. Everything was on one stream, so I just set my videocast to send it to the TV all day and didn't have to change it (though I had to reboot it a few times.) There were hosts to introduce the event and check in between many of the panels. Production was excellent. The room they were in featured artwork that was specially made for the Fandome. There was a drawing which you were allowed to enter 10 times every half hour. There was also merch which I clicked on but got bored and left before the page finished loading.

The September 12 edition was all on demand. There were multiple rooms and a lot more content, including a Hall of Heroes where many of the panels that were originally broadcast on Aug. 22 were available again. But like the previous edition, everything was only up for 24 hours. While I liked being able to watch everything on demand, it got a little annoying having to constantly look for and reload panels on my phone and then broadcast them to the TV especially since some of them were only 5-10 minutes long or less. I would have liked an option for a continuous stream, or at least a way for another panel to automatically load after the previous one was finished (like the YouTube app did with [email protected]).

One of my favorite parts was that they involved many different countries and languages. They had hosts who spoke multiple languages, and panels that talked about the DC fandom in different parts of the world. This is more accessible with a virtual event, so I'm glad they were able to work this into their event.

I also liked that they included the full premiere of the animated movie Superman: Man of Tomorrow. However, aside from the panel for that (which I watched after the movie), very few panels held my attention. I guess I'm just tired of pretending to like watching Zoom calls. They get more and more horrid. There's a reason why any TV show worth watching has to be produced, even the news and reality shows. I just can't intentionally subject myself to watching fuzzy webcams anymore with equally fuzzy sound (I've never been able to get into Twitch/Youtube culture). With that in mind, the panels that I liked the best weren't really panels--they were more like TV shows. My favorites (aside from Superman: Man of Tomorrow) included the episode of Static Shock, the DC in Japan panel (which was more like a talk show with the guests in the same room though spaced apart), the Behind the Scenes look at Shazam, performances by Daughtry and Phony PPL, and the 30-second commercials which were cute. The Bob Kane documentary was also interesting.

Did it feel like a con...in my opinion, no...but there is some value in offering a weekend of interesting TV.
