San Diego Comic-Con 2019 is now over, and besides the exclusive LEGO sets and minifigures we talked about last week (see: San Diego Comic-Con 2019 Starting Today!), there were some other interesting exclusives and events at the LEGO booth that are worth discussing. So, let’s take a look!
First of all, I would let Joshua Hanlon from Beyond the Brick show you around the LEGO booth with the help of LEGO designers Erik Varszegi and Tristan Cain. You will see several life-size LEGO models and mosaics made for the show, the Comic-Con exclusive LEGO sets, some posters participants could take with them, the minifigure building station, and the interactive LEGO Comic Creation station, which allowed participants to make and print their very own LEGO-themed comic books. There was also an interactive diorama station where people could pose their custom minifigs and take photos of them.
As mentioned in the video above, at the LEGO Comic Creation station attendees could design their own minifig, choose from several story options, and take home a customized printed comic book! There were also some unannounced exclusives, like the SDCC 2019 keychain, and the unique minifigure torsos pictured below (photos by Beyond the Brick). If you are looking to get some of the SDCC 2019 LEGO sets and minifigs, you can find them on eBay: LEGO SDCC-2019 ON EBAY
LEGO also showed the following gameplay trailer for the upcoming LEGO Hidden Side theme. Here is the official description: Hidden Side invites kids to join a fearless team of ghost hunters, who dare see the unseen and help turn a haunted world back to normal, one ghost at a time. This new theme includes a series of “haunted” building sets full of awesome functionality and secret surprises that, on their own, provide the build and roleplay fun of any LEGO theme. Activating the free augmented reality app brings the models to life, revealing a hidden world of interactive mysteries and challenges to solve. When combined, the two worlds make each other even more compelling and fun. The app also consists of a digital game that kids can play independent of the building set. There is also going to be a series of Hidden Side animated shorts airing on YouTube in October of this year. The LEGO Hidden Side sets will be available on August 1st, but you can already check them out at the LEGO Hidden Side section of the Online LEGO Shop.
There were also several discussion panels where attendees could hear from and interact with LEGO designers, graphic artists, and more. One of the discussions was about the US version of LEGO MASTERS (we talked about this before here: LEGO MASTERS TV Show Coming Soon to U.S.!). The team is now looking for contestants for the show.

Mega Construx also had an impressive display featuring their upcoming Game of Thrones sets. A couple of the sets are already available for pre-order on Amazon: MEGA CONSTRUX GAME OF THRONES AT AMAZON
