Today some new figures arrived to the Den, some of which i’ll speak in the next couple of days. They are 13 at total! A “small” buy i made to a person i regularly by minifigures.
Two of the figures that came in the group i bought were from the series Sponge Bob Square Pants, an american cartoon series owned by Nickelodeon. I don’t know why this series has so much success, but the fact is that, according to wikipedia, Nickelodeon has generated more than 8 bilion dollars in revenue only in merchandising.
Maybe because of its success, LEGO decided to launch a collection of 14 sets between the years of 2007 and 2011.
From the left we have the main character, Sponge Bob and at its right we have his friend Patrick Star. Both figures came with the set 3816: Glove World from 2011.
I confess that I’m not a fan of the cartoon, but because they came in a package deal I will not say that I don’t want them.
I estimate that the cost of the minifigures was about $3 each. A awesome price for some figures which the set was removed from circulation in 2011.
