August 23-25 were the dates for the 2019 D23 Expo, a Disney-sponsored Disney fan convention. In the three-day event, there were presentations by the many different departments of the Walt Disney Company, including Walt Disney Feature Animation, Pixar, Marvel, Disney Theme Parks and Resorts, and Disney Imagineering. About 100,000 fans attended the Expo, which took place at the Anaheim Convention Center.
The LEGO Group had a small presence at the event, with the display of some large scale models. These were not found in a LEGO-sponsored site, but outside the LEGO Store spaces. Inside a display room presenting the Sith Troopers in action figure form stood a life-size version of the trooper, rendered in LEGO bricks.
Outside of the store display were models that were originally presented at the Avengers: Endgame premiere – a 25X scale model of LEGO minifigure parts including:
Iron Man’s head and torso, which was signed by Scarlett Johansson (and also moustached by her),
Captain America’s shield, signed by Chris Evans,
Hulk’s Fists, signed by Mark Ruffalo, and
The Infinity Gauntlet.
The Disney Railroad set (71044) was also available for purchase at the Disney Dream store.
