$.98 keychains - keychains = $.98 minifigs with tiny holes in their heads.

I may have to get over to the LEGO store soon. Thanks for the report. :)

Looks like a Double VIP point sale starts on March 1 and runs through the 15th as well.

Getting ready to place a big order today and noticed the sale when checking my points balance in the VIP section. I think I'll wait until Tuesday and take the double points over a free police boat.

Good to know. I was about to start a thread to ask if anyone knew where they usually announced the double points deals ahead of time or if we just find out when they hit.

Yeah seriously, I can just see the rash of negative feedbacks and pissed of customers across Ebay and other sources once people start trying to selling these. It could get ugly since they look good from the front. I'm sure there will be no end to these being put in 'lots' where they make it look like a great deal and of course the seller will have some stupid disclaimer that is just vague enough that you might take a chance on them. :facepalm:

I am happy. At least with two of the three. But well, it was my first time, so one damaged out of three is a rate I can live with.
And I don't intend to sell them on ebay as 'real' minifigs. Neither my former keychain figs.

Call before making a special trip but i know the sacramento store has a large bin in the back of the store, has been for weeks, it is somewhat picked over but there are still some SW in there.

To change the subject a bit, what is the best way to remove figs from the key chain? I bought a couple for the capes but want to do as little damage as possible to the rest of the fig to get them. Thanks

I like my separated keychain figs... :x Especially for $2.50 or less.

Just got back from the Garden City store. They had just about everything that was online.

I think Ryan was referencing the magnet fig separation technique post-gluing, not the keychains.
