Collectible Minifigures Series 10 is expected to contain a rare golden minifigure in addition to the normal serving of sixteen designs. LEGO is intending to limit the randomly distributed golden minifigures to 5000 worldwide. Of course they will become truly collectible items and I am worried that we will have another insanely expensive piece of plastic. The 2012 Toy Fair exclusives, Captain America and Iron Man, are currently for sale for a whopping 5000 USD each! Seriously, go and buy yourself a car, enjoy a nice vacation, safe the money for the education of your kids.
Series 9 arrived in New Zealand and I got my hands on a complete set (thanks Sammy!). The silver packaging looks smashing. Can’t wait to get them in front of my lens.
The 2012 edition is making some progress. Today Hulk and Chase McCain arrived. I wonder how these two got along during the time they spend together in the envelope :-)
Today I received an “Unexpected Package”. All the Hobbit Minifigures arrived! More photos for the upcoming 2012 catalog…
