Fairytale and Historic Minifigure Set

December 27, 2010

A new set has popped up on lego.com, unfortunately, it is not available in the States, at least not yet. :(

This is a very different set from most LEGO sets and seems like a fantasy version of the new Community Minifigure Set which also will be available starting in Jan. (again, not sure if it will be in the States yet).

I really like both of these sets. They are full of fun minifigs, great for both boys and girls, and have a lot of potential for all kinds of fun scenes. :)

Apparently both sets will be available in the UK, Australia and European countries. Maybe all of us AFOLs in the States will have to petition Customer Service to bring the set over the pond. That or contact a friend (if you have one) that lives where these are available. ;)

Collectible Minifigure Series 2 starting to show up in the US

August 18, 2010

While Europe has had the new Collectible Minifigures for a while now, they are slowly starting to trickle over on this side of the pond.

There has been only one confirmed sighting that I know of so far, at least among my friends. Tony Sava down in Texas found them at his local Toys “R” Us. I imagine that if it is a one TRU, than it will be at many soon.

Like Series 1, this is a small production run. So if you see them, get them, as they will most likely disappear just as fast or faster than the previous set.

I don’t know what will be the “hot” figures from this set. There definitely seems to be more winners than losers in this one. There are so many fun new elements, my favorite being the tiny Minifig trophy the karate master has.

There is a very nicely done review of all the figures on Eurobricks and Tony was nice enough to compile a barcode sheet for the US.

What’s even more exciting is that Steve Witt confirmed LEGO already has up through Series 5 designed and that they will keep making them as long as they are popular.

I look forward to the hunt and good luck at finding your favorites! :)

LEGO Collectible Minifigures Series 2

May 18, 2010

Grogall of Eurobricks has provided us with the first hi-res images of the LEGO Collectible Minifigures Series 2.

There are quite a few wonderful gems in this set. The Pharaoh, the Centurion, and the Surfer all look really cool. I have to say, one of my favorites is the Karate master with the trophy. :)

The coolest thing is that when I was at Bricks by the Bay Mads Nipper said that the plan for these collectible minifigures is to have two series a year until they either run out of ideas or they stop being popular. From the vast popularity that is already evident both on and off the internet I don’t think that will happen anytime soon. ;)
