With news that the San Diego Comic-Con exclusive for 2017 is a BrickHeadz Spiderman/Venom and Supergirl/Martian Manhunter many are reflecting on the entire nature of the convention exclusive. For some the annual hunt for the LEGO convention exclusive is an integral part of the event while for others - mostly those who can't go in person - it is a major speed bump to maintaining a complete collection, and the latest issue of Blocks Magazine has an editorial on it reports Brick Fanatics. It's worth noting that LEGO currently has three BrickHeadz themes - DC, Marvel and Disney - and so far two of the three are being represented at SDCC. Is there room for another or would that triple the ire aimed at LEGO already?

Roving reporter for the official Star Wars website, James Floyd, has submitted his field report from LEGOLAND California's Star Wars Days (June 3rd and 4th).

While enjoying its daily news upload this morning our tame Imperial Probe Droid took notice of all the formats it was receiving data bursts in, so we at Rebelscum also wanted to know how you take your Rebelscum in the morning? Straight up off the website, with a dash of RSS or do you sprinkle on a couple of spoons of social media? Take our latest Probe Droid Poll and let us know.

Just starting to appear outside the gates of LEGOLAND Deutschland where Star Wars Day is currently being held until June 18th is this nifty promotional DUPLO brick. There are a handful available on Bricklink.com at this moment, but numbers to increase (and prices to drop) as they become more common.
