Lego® Batman Build Event


My kiddos and I could not be any more excited about the release of The LEGO® Batman Movie.

My youngest already has 3 of the LEGO® sets from the movie and still wants to get the whole series!

My 13 year old is mostly looking forward to the characters that will be making an appearance in the movie.

And I am psyched about getting spending quality time with my family while relaxing in the Marcus theater’s dream loungers.

Since we have to wait two more weeks to see Batman in action, we are going to head out to Barnes & Noble this Saturday for their LEGO® Batman Build Event.

Starting Saturday January 28th and continuing February 25th and March 11th, celebrate the release of the LEGO® Batman Movie. At each event, kids can collect two limited edition trading cards (while supplies last) featuring characters from the movie. The cards collected at all three events will unveil a special scene. Enjoy giveaways, make and play themed moments with LEGO® bricks and blocks plus much more.

Let me tell you, when Barnes & Noble does giveaways, their prizes are awesome!

Both of my boys have won prizes from different events. You’d think they hit the lottery! The Doctor Who prize pack and the Batman VS. Superman: Dawn of Justice movie posters fit perfectly with the other superhero decor in their bedrooms.

What is HalloweenFest?

It’s a one-of-a-kind event held at local comic shops. It gives a chance for pop-culture fans and comic book enthusiasts alike to enjoy the free comics and HCF Mini-Comic Polypacks and participate in the Greatest Halloween Costume Contest.

According to the Halloween ComicFest website, there are 32 titles—19 full-sized comics and 13 mini-comics—available, including select titles from Marvel Comics (Darth Vader: Doctor Aphra #1, Spidey #1, Unbeatable Squirrel Girl: You Choose the Story #1, and The Haunted Mansion #1), DC Comics (DC Superhero Girls #1 and Scooby Apocalypse/Hanna-Barbera Sampler), Dark Horse Comics (Harrow County #1), and IDW Publishing (My Little Pony: The Haunted Dungeon) among other spooktacular tales.

Last year my kids and I attended our first HalloweenFest at Powers Comics in Green Bay. We had such a blast! Not only did we each get to pick 3 free comic books there was also an assortment of free bookmarks, stickers and candy. Powers Comics was lucky enough to have New York Times bestselling author, John Jackson Miller, signing his own comic books for anyone that purchased his work.
