During the recent San Diego Comic-Con, LEGO has given away four exclusive LEGO Super Heroes minifigures to lucky raffle winners. The four minifigures are: Phoenix, Bizarro, Black Suit Spider-Man, and Shazam. Here is a picture of all four of these exclusive LEGO Super Heroes minifigures by Flickr member Vanjey_LEGO, who managed to get all four! 😉
The first Comic-Con exclusive LEGO Super Heroes minifigure is Phoenix. Here is a little bit of history about her, in case you are not familiar with the character: Phoenix is a Marvel Comics super-heroine. Her real name is Jean Grey-Summers, and goes by the aliases Marvel Girl, Phoenix, and Dark Phoenix. She is a mutant born with telepathic and telekinetic powers. Her powers first manifested when she saw her childhood friend being hit by a car. Jean is an important figure in the lives of other Marvel characters, mostly the X-Men, including her husband Cyclops; her mentor and father-figure Charles Xavier; her close friend and sometimes romantic interest Wolverine; her best friend and sister-like figure Storm; and her genetic children Rachel Summers, X-Man, Cable, and Stryfe.
Here are a few more pictures of Phoenix, along with a picture of the original Marvel Comics character. (Phoenix minifigure pictures by Andrew Clapham.)
The second Comic-Con exclusive LEGO Super Heroes minifigure is Bizarro. Bizarro is from the DC Universe comics. He was created as a mirror-image of Superman, with opposite powers to Superman. He often appears as an antagonist to Superman, though not always. Being a mirror-image he has a strange speech-pattern where all of his comments mean the opposite as in normal speech (i.e. “good” means “bad”). His face has a grotesque, Frankenstein-like appearance.

And here is a great picture of the Superman vs. his mirror-image, Bizarro (photo by Vanjey_LEGO). They look great together, aren’t they? 😀
The last two Comic-Con exclusive LEGO Super Heroes minifigures are Black-Suit Spider-Man and Shazam. The black Spider-Man suit is from the Spider-Man: Back in Black Marvel Comics series. The story is about Spider-Man’s anger and determination to find Aunt May’s shooter. Shazam (a.k.a. Captain Marvel) is a super-hero from the DC Universe comics. Captain marvel is the alter-ego of Billy Batson, who is struck by a magic lightning bolt that transforms him into an adult super-hero with supernatural powers whenever he says “Shazam”.

Only 250 of each of these four exclusive LEGO Super Heroes minifigures were made, so as you can imagine they are highly desirable and collectible. If you would like to get them for your collection, eBay is your best friend. The minifigs are going for about $100-$150 each. (You can also get them on BrickLink, but the prices are higher at about $200 each.) Here are the links to listings on eBay:

I think i want shazam and Bizarro so i might check the prices 😉 i bet they are high though 🙁 Oh look its a 1st post 😮
Yup highest price is 499+ O_O
Tydroid, people can ask whatever price they want, however it doesn’t mean they will get it. As I mention in the article, the actual going price is around $100-$150. Even on BrickLink they go for no more than $200. For very rare minifigures $100 is not bad at all. 🙄
Thanks for adding in the actual comic book art for comparrison!
Hey, Kevin, nice to have you back! Yeah, I thought it would be interesting to add those for comparison’s sake. 😉
Black suit Spider-Man is cool. It’d be nice to own hopefully they’ll have some kind of variant of him. I was lucky enough to find a Thor polybag (30163) to add to my Super Heroes collection.
Nice find with Thor! Yes, the black Spider-Man is pretty cool. Although not my favorite. I think the spider on his chest could have been done better. But that’s just my opinion. 😉
Like I said earlier, I would rather have LEGO not make a minifigure at all if it is going to be so rare. Variants of figures that are in sets I am fine with, but we still have no sign of any Green Lantern minifig (Hal Jordan or other wise). LEGO doing this is more annoying than anything, especially since even if a person was able to go to Comic-Con, there was no guaranteeing that they would be able to get the figure.
Jacob, yeah, I do agree. LEGO used to make minifigs for events that may have had a date and event name on the back. These were considered very unique, but were also available in regular sets. So yeah, it would be nice if they would continue that trend!
BTW, Kevin Hinkle, LEGO’s Community Coordinator for North America, and our connection to LEGO commented on this post earlier, so he will likely read your thoughts. He is the person who keeps a pulse on the LEGO community and shares our thoughts and concerns with LEGO. 😉
Brickset also had an article about this. The idea seems to be that they want to get people who are not already fans of LEGO interested in it. quoting myself there “If LEGO really wanted to attract new people, couldn’t they just release figures that will be in future sets early? Or if they really needed an exclusive, make a regular figure (any released, or to be released figure from either line), but have printing on the back that says which comic-con it was from, and the year. People who want the actual characters will not mind if they can’t get it if a regular version exists/will exist, and I’m sure there will still be a market for completionists who will want every version of every figure.”
Jacob, yeah I read that discussion on Brickset last night and I was thinking of you. The comments are really worth reading. Pretty much everyone says the same thing there; LEGO should stop this maddness! Here is the link to the BrickSet discussion if someone else would like to read it: https://brickset.com/article/3816
the figures are all fantastic, especially Phoenix and Bizarro. but it’s verging on heartbreaking that they’re impossible to get unless you can attend an event on the other side of the world 🙁
as with the Green Lantern figure, i hope they turn up in regular sets at some point
Colin, I hope LEGO is listening, because this is a very valid point. And it is really not making any difference to LEGO to make these minifigs available in regular sets, or at least mini sets. The only people who come out ahead with these super exclusive minifigs are the ones who can get their hands on them and sell them on eBay for crazy prices. LEGO should remain a toy that can be enjoyed by everyone. Not a super-rare collectors item. 😐
i like shazam the most! (im at a hotel)
admin bricklink is missing bizzaro/shazam
Naw, they are there. Here are the links. 😉
Venom/Black Spider Man: https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?S=41497-1
actually you accidentally said venom you meant to say black spider man… close enough anyways
Yeah, sorry about that! On BrickLink the character is listed as Venom/Spider-Man, as a lot of people still think he is meant to be Venom. 😉
They didn’t make 250 of each. They made 1000.
John, I’m not good at math, but isn’t 250 x 4 = 1,000? 😉
1000 of each.
Hm… I’m pretty sure I read 1,000 for all, but I could be wrong. In either case they would be quite rare, especially with all the fans who want them. 😉
It says on ign they made 1,000 each for 4,000 total.
John, thanks for the link! I have heard 1,000 total, but in either case they are quite rare! 😉
what i wanna know is how this dude got all four???… I thought you could only win once!!! Is this guy Jaime Mardox aka Multiple Man from the X men???
Vanjay bought them on ebay.
