Series 3 Blind Pack Code Cracked – Updated!

Who needs barcodes? Forum member that guy has cracked the code for determining which figures are inside the blind pack for Minifigures Series 3. It involves a series of raised bumps running along the bottom seal of the individual packs. The pictures above show a black dot for each raised bump for the corresponding figure when viewing the pack from the back.

that guy, the LEGO community thanks you. Your name will go down in history.

Update: Staff writer Rick threw together this cheat sheet:

Still Looking For Series 2?

Not sure when this was posted, but TRU has listed Series 2 of the Collectible Minifigs on their site. While the price is set at $2.99, a full buck over MSRP, you’d be hard pressed to find these anywhere else as most if not all retail outlets carrying them with a reasonable price tag have been sold out, and Shop@Home is now also sold out. No limit on the order.

They also have 2 promos going on right now. Spend $49 or more to get free shipping, and spend $50 or more on LEGO and get a free LEGO City Playmat.

November Is The New January; LEGO Series 3 Minifigs Available Now

If you haven’t heard by now, LEGO Collectible Minifigures Series 3 has been found out in the wild, specifically the wilds of a Fred Meyer store in the Seattle area. Brickpop’s Jeff and Daniel scored a nice pile of loot a few days ago. They wrote an unboxing article complete with pictures yesterday.

Collectible Figs Series 2 50% Off at Target

Collectible figs

Forum member ufjason found Volume 2 of the Collectible Minifigures at Target for 50% off the $2.99 pricetag. Since these are part of the Halloween seasonal items, it seems they qualify for the day-after-Halloween clearance. Assuming they have any left, this is a pretty sweet deal. Good luck trying to find them, but if you don’t, you can always get some cheap Halloween candy while you’re there.

Collectible Minifigs Now Available at LEGO S@H

LEGO has updated their Shop@Home site with LEGO Minifiguresicon. Limit 5 per person kinda sucks, but you can probably place more than one order? I don’t know, I’ve never ordered more than my limit on any one thing through their site. They are also showing up at Walmart in Canada, and a few reports are coming in that they are starting to show up at Target stores as well. Keep an eye out on this thread for more information on availability in your area.

8683 LEGO Minifigures Series 1 Clean Images

LEGO was kind enough to send along hi-res clean images of series one. Even though they are computer renderings, they still show off each figure very nicely. These are the same images used on LEGO employee business cards. Series 1 is due out in June for $1.99 USD and $2.49 $2.99 CAN. Click through for the flickr page where you can view the hi-res image. Enjoy!

CLARIFICATION: Collectible Minifig Packs Series 2 Image Preliminary

It should be noted, if it isn’t obvious from the get go, that the image shown below of the Collectible Minifig Packs Series 2 is preliminary and does not reflect final product. I apologize for any confusion this may have caused. I am hoping to get final pictures sometime in the very near future and when I do I will post them to the flickr account and report it here.

Collectible Minifig Packs No Show @ Toy Fair

The Collectible Minifig Packs were a no show at Toy Fair this year. LEGO decided to pull them at the last minute, only to bring them out again for the regular show attendees (i.e. buyers and I suppose “real” press). No satisfactory reason was given, at least none that made any sense to me.

ANYWAYS, all griping aside, the press kit did come with a pic of the series 2 selection. Some stats:

Series 1:
» $1.99 USD
» $2.99 CAD
» Available in June

Series 2:
» $1.99 USD
» $2.99 CAD
» Available in September

Pardon the poor photo, but I did the best I could with my camera and available light and cleaned it up as much as possible. Check it out below:
