San Diego Comic Con 2014 Round-Up

Name of Event: San Diego Comic Con International
Found at:
Details: It's been a little too long since I've rounded up an event I didn't personally attend. July's San Diego Comic Con International is an enormous event that attracts an unreasonable amount of media attention, so rather than try to find everything, I'll focus on grabbing the LEGO-related coverage. While there's still plenty of that out there, my understanding is that the event itself isn't conducive to the sort of in-depth LEGO photos I like to see. If you've got a highlight we missed, let us know in the comments or by sending us an e-mail.

IdleHandsBlog's Flickr photos (somehow, the blog these photos are tied to doesn't seem to have a dedicated post for LEGO coverage). MASSIVE LEGO STAR WARS 15TH ANNIVERSARY MINIFIGURE CASE – SPECIAL PREVIEW!

He also took the photo shown above and about 200 more great photos (on Flickr), including close-ups of the four exclusive minifigures he was able to acquire.

Rather impressively, LEGO and CREATACOR have put out official coverage of their presence at SDCC this year as well:
