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! 🙂
