Oh joy, oh rapture! Oh hooray! Lego’s had their so-called “minifigs” in all sorts of costumes for years and years now, lovely, amazing, fabulous little guys. My favorites have been the Star Wars collection of course, but up until now, you’ve sort of gotten what you’d payed for. Why’s that bad? It’s not! It’s just not as HIP as buying a package with mystery contents! They’ve gotten hip though. They’ve gotten with it! This right here’s the LEGO Minifigures blind boxed series one! 2 B Reeleased early this summer. Woopie!
This news comes straight from one of the eminent LEGO reporters in the whole world: HUW of Brickset. He went to the London Toy Fair earlier this month to find out all his most amazing reports on the LEGO universe. This is what I plan to do in the future when I am rich and only go to toy fairs.
This set of figures is scheduled to be released June 2010. I am pumped up. This sort of excitement harkens back to baseball card packs, where you’d get your favorites, least favorites, and a stick of gum in every pack. Don’t eat the old packs. These LEGO packs come with one of 16 figures, each of them’ve got unique accessories, some of the accessories totally unique to this set!
At $2 a pack, I am definitely going to try for the clown, the robot, and that really confusing thing in the back that’s gray and has a chicken leg and a shovel.
I’m really into that sort of thing.
