Well, it's first Monday of the new year, and I guess that means it's back to work. If you weren't lucky enough to come across these at Toys'R'Us or at Walmart, you can now order Minifigures Series 3
directly from LEGO Shop@Home
for $2.99 each. There's a limit of 16 per customer and there's no guarantee you'll get a full set with your 16. But hey, that's what trading's for. Good luck!
