I am happy to announce that three new books are now available. First to mention is The 2012 LEGO Minifigure Catalog. On its 170 pages it contains more than 500 minifigures that were released in 2012. I have even been able to include photographs for the ultra rare Super Heroes ComicCon and Toyfair Minifigures (thanks Dan, Greg & Huw!).
Second, I updated The 2011 LEGO Minifigure Catalog. In this second edition, many corrections and addititions have been incorporated. The book has now 146 pages and also uses the new layout introduced in the 2012 catalog.
Last, I would like to mention the second edition of The Star Wars LEGO Minifigure Catalog. This second edition includes all the 2012 Star Wars Minifigures and I am proud to have a photograph for every minifigure. The book also contains a new name index.
All books are available immediately on CreateSpace and they will all soon show up on Amazon.com. I hope that you enjoy the books and I would like to thank everybody that helped creating them.
I imported another 564 new photos into the database. Frans was so kind to allow me to photograph many rare and wonderful figures last weekend. Now it is another sorting session ahead of me. Looks like there is enough material to also justify a second edition on the figure book.
Andrew Sielen wrote an interesting article on the price of LEGO. Many AFOLs and non-AFOLs are under the impression that LEGO has become more expensive over time, but that is not the case. Andrew presents a thorough analysis of the historical data. Interesting read!
