Major Spoilerite Nick sent a message our way regarding LEGO set 5004077: Lightning Lad!

What does this mean!? Speculation after the jump.


This is the second or third Minifigure Cube we’ve seen in the last couple of weeks, and since this figure is all boxed up and ready to go, it means one of three things:

  1. Lightning Lad will be a free figure with purchase of $75 or more at the website.
    • This seems rather unlikely at this point as LEGO just released a huge collection of DC Comics Superheroes LEGO sets for 2015. It could happen though, as LEGO did something like this last year with Martian Manhunter.
  2. Lightning Lad will be a San Diego Comic Con chase figure.
    • This is more likely as LEGO has released a number of these figures over the years (Shazam, Green Lantern, Batman, Plastic Man) that have been incredibly popular, and incredibly hard to find (I’m still missing several of these, nudge, nudge, wink, wink Faithful Spoilerites!).
  3. This will be a Target Exclusive
    • This is where you’ll find this figure.  The gimmick has been done before by toy manufacturer (Superboy, City Swamp Ranger, Ninjago, Chima and more), with these figures running around $15.00 per. Unfortunately, the furthest Target is over an hour a way and by the time I get there, they are all sold out. Even SkrullBryan won’t pick one of these up for me.

No official announcement on this yet, but those are my best guesses at this point.

  1. “Unfortunately, the furthest Target is over an hour a way and by the time I get there, they are all sold out.”

    I’ve got the same problem. The nearest Target is in a town about 2 hours away, and that is just getting to the city. Takes another 30 – 45 minutes to get to Target (if you are lucky, sometimes traffic is slow enough to be an hour or so). So I rarely ever get there, let alone get there when they have an exclusive. So far I’ve been lucky just to get the few exclusives I have (a couple Star Wars figures and a Skylanders variant mostly) because someone just happened to be there when they had some available.

    If only science would get cracking and build us some Star Trek transporters or Futurama travel tubes.

  2. I have about 4 Targets near me. If this is how they release it and I can get one, I’ll pick one up. The Bizzaro Batman is being released with the Lego superhero movie Justice League vs Bizzaro Justice League.
