San Diego Comic-Con 2019 is starting today! The four-day event showcases a wide variety of pop culture and entertainment elements across virtually all genres, including comic books, fiction and fantasy related film, television, anime, manga, toys, collectible card games, video games, webcomics, fantasy novels, and more. There are also workshops, seminars, and discussion panels with those in the industry, as well as previews of upcoming feature films. The event draws huge crowds, including LEGO fans, who are interested to see upcoming LEGO sets, hear about LEGO related news and events, and pick up some convention exclusive LEGO sets.
As usual, LEGO fans will be able to purchase and enter into drawings for a chance to win Comic-Con exclusive sets and minifigures. If you are going to SDCC, and you would like more details on the different events, I recommend following Allen from TheBrickFan.com on Twitter, as he will be posting regular updates about what’s happening each day and when and where you can enter the various drawings.
Those who are not going to SDCC, but would like to get some of the exclusives, can look for them on eBay, BrickLink, and other secondary marketplaces starting today. The prices are high for these limited-release products, but often get better after about a week or two. Also, note that while the minifigures are exclusive to SDCC with unique printing, the sets are usually not. They can be built from your own LEGO collection once instructions become available.

The three exclusive SDCC-2019 minifigures include the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes PS4 Suit Spider-Man, the LEGO DC Super Heroes Zebra Batman, and the LEGO Stranger Things Barb minifigure.
The three exclusive SDCC-2019 sets include the #77901 LEGO Star Wars Sith Trooper Bust, the #77902 LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Captain Marvel and the Asis, and the #77903 LEGO DC Super Heroes The Dark Knight of Gotham City.
As far as what new sets and themes and other possible information we will get from this year’s comic-con, we will talk about that once the event is over. Also, if you are a Mega Construx fan, keep an eye on their updates as well (Twitter is the best place for this as well). They recently got the Game of Thrones license, which means we should be seeing some really cool sets.
