This is confirmed fact? And there is a noticeable difference in the quality?

i love it! about freaking time. now maybe people will actually BUY the sets those "rare" minifigs come in, and, you know, BUILD THE SETS. because lego is all about BUILDING. HELLO?!?
selling figures individually as magnets (chinese plastic or not) was a stupid business model. good for you, lego - you've seen the error of your ways!
HARDEE HAR HAR

We're talking non-licensed battlepacks, Vintage collections (except for early production runs of Vol. 1), collectible series, minifig based games, magnets, keychains...that sort of thing.

All Extended Line minifigure magnet sets will as of Jan 1st 2011 be glued.
Based on new requirements, the magnet base and the minifigures will have to be permanently fixed together on LEGO Star Wars magnet sets.
To ensure a consistent consumer experience across all LEGO minifigure magnet sets we have chosen to permanently fix the minifigure to the magnet base on all magnet sets moving forward from Jan 1st 2011 (incl. Pharaoh’s Quest launching Dec 1st). This decision has been carefully considered and was not taken easily as we know that many consumers will obviously not like this change.
