How to Win LEGO’s ‘Black Lightning’ Minifigure Exclusive at Comic-Con 2018


You know you’ve made it big when they’ve made you small.

Just ask anyone who has been immortalized as a LEGO minifigure — Elephant Costume Girl, Corn Cob Guy or Chris Pratt, who has like five versions of his different movie characters! Or you can check with some of the heroes of TV’s Arrowverse, which has provided the inspiration for the plastic-brick dynasty’s previous Comic-Con exclusives.

Two years ago, Brandon Routh’s Atom from Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow was the must-have, and last year, it was his Legends‘ cohort Maisie Richardson Sellers’ Vixen.

For 2018, LEGO has stepped a teensy bit away from the interconnected shows while still staying in the CW world of crimefighters with this sweet rendition of Black Lightning.

The diminutive take on Freeland’s electrifying vigilante Jefferson Pierce (played by Cress Williams) rocks the high-tech suit Gambi designed for him, as well as the power to make collectors the coolest kids on the block. But like the superhero himself, it’s gonna take some work to catch this guy. In fact, because he is an exclusive to the San Diego event, attendees must follow these directions for the chance to win or purchase him:
