Yeah, that makes sense. It's funny, there's major reasons to NOT blind-pack these. I'm sure there are people out there that would want a LEGO minifig of their profession or hobby even if they only played with them as a kid, but didn't transition to AFOLs. The Nurse from S.1 would be one example, the cheerleader another. That said, no one who's not a collector will buy a bunch just to make sure they get a nurse to put on the desk at their workstation or a cheerleader to pin to their backpack. Additionally, your suggestion of a grad makes TOTAL sense, but no one will shell out a bunch of money in the hopes that they get a graduate figure out of an entire series of 16.

Mister Ed wrote:Well, aren't there are pictures of the figures on the box? If so, then anybody that saw that there was, say, a nurse figure, would be able to feel the packages to find it, I think.
If they didn't look close enough to notice the figures on the box, they would be unlikely to take the time to look through non-blind packages on the off chance that something of interest would be there, IMHO.
