I have the luck of having a friend that has a friend that as a cousin that can arranje a closed box of LEGO minifigures at a fair price. I bought my first case with the 14th series and i repeated that with the series 15.
This time i decided to make a small video with the opening and selection of the minifigures. To have an idea, each box has 60 minifigures. From those 60, we can get 3 complete collections of minifigures. From the remaining 12, there is usually 3 figures that repeate themselves 5 time in a box.
Everything is in the below video including statistics of the minifigures in the box. Hope you like it.
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.
This image confirms some rumours from the last couple of months: there will be an exclusive collection of LEGO disneys minifigures!!!
This is huge because not only it appeals to a market of fans of the disney world (my wife is going to love this), but it also appeals to young ones and adults that love LEGO and reinforces the connection between LEGO and disney.
The probable list of minifigures will be:
- Malificent (Sleeping Beauty)
- Alice (Alice in Wonderland)
- The Cat (Alice in Wonderland)
- Syndrome (The Incredibles)
- Dash (The Incredibles)
- Buzz Lightyear (Toy Story)
- Toy Aliens (Toy Story)
- Captain Hook
- Peter Pan
- Stitch(Lilo & Stitch)
- Ursula (Little Mermaid)
- Ariel (Little Mermaid)
There is a total of 18 figures (2 more than the usual collection) and there is not a expected release date, but i have a feeling that this collection will be release in the beginning of May.
Rumors appear about the new cover of the series 16. If it’s true, it means that we will have a new tematic series by the spring (the we had The Simpsons) before series 16.
The eurobricks website also confirms this fact and launches the probable list of minifigures:
Penguin Suit Guy
Banana Suit Guy
Dog Show Judge
According to the website, this new series will be launched by fall, it will have the yellow color and its number will be 71013.
