Official Details of Series 18 Minifigures

This year is not just the 60th anniversary of the LEGO brick, it is also the 40th anniversary of the LEGO Minifigure. LEGO seem to think that the best way to celebrate the minifigure’s birthday is with a huge minifigure costume party. I think it’s a great idea.

This series features 17 minifigures all taking part in a birthday costume party celebration. The series will be available from April.

Here they are…

Police Officer

The birthday boy himself – a recreation of one of the first ever minifigures. There are reports out of New York Toy Fair that this minifigure is going to be rare, with only one per box. I think that’s a stupid way of doing things.

Toys R Us Bricktober Weeks 3 & 4 Details

The Toys R US Bricktober promotion continues and thanks to the latest catalogue we have confirmation of the final two sets and when you can get them.

TRU Bricktober Weeks 3-4

October 11 – 17th: LEGO City Minifigure Pack

October 18 – 24th: LEGO Minifigures Pack

Each of the packs will require a $75 spend during the relevant period.

These probably won’t sell out as quickly as the Batman minifigures but are likley to still be popular.

On Sale: Toys R Us Bricktober Sale & Promotion

It’s almost October, or as Toys R Us like to call it Bricktober!

Every year in late September or early October Toys R Us runs some sort of LEGO giveaway. This year there are two different minifigure packs on offer. Click on the picture for a better look.

Toys R Us Bricktober 2017 Details

Here are the details…
Set 1: Spend $75 or more from September 27th to October 2nd to receive a set of 4 LEGO Ninjago minifigures. These minifigures are based on the TV show not the Ninjago Movie.
Set 2: Spend $75 or more from October 3rd to 10th to receive a set of 4 LEGO Batman Movie minifigures. The lineup of minifigures is exclusive to this promotion.

These packs are not available to purchase separately.

They also have a modest sale on to make spending that $75 a little more tempting. You can view the included sets below, or view the catalogue for yourself here. The sale runs for the same period as the promotion – from September 27th until October 10th. Note that Toys R Us sales do start online a day early (tonight) but you may not get the Ninjago minifigures until tomorrow.

Series 17 Features Some Awesome Minifigures

More news out of NY Toy Fair – an all new series of minifigures to go crazy over.

LEGO haven’t given out official names yet so we’re just going to have to guess for now…

Front row: French Man, Butterfly Girl, Atlantis Warrior (that trident seems very Atlantis to me), Corn Suit Guy (amazing), Vintage Space Explorer (that ray gun is very 60s spacey), Gym Junkie, Angry Dwarf? (No idea what this one is meant to be) and Rocket Boy (going to be a popular one.

Second row: Surfer, Pastry Chef, Diner Cook (the Hotdog and Milkshake are great), Elf Warrior Woman, Strongman (classic sideshow/circus style strongman), 1980s guy? (love the flip phone), Vet (love the new bunny).

Finally, there is some sort of mystery minifigure!? Could this be another Mr Gold situation? We’ll have to wait and see.

Toys R Us Bricktober 2016 Details

Every LEGO fan that shops at Toys R Us knows that October isn’t October, it’s Bricktober.

This annual LEGO promotion usually has some great bonuses for those spending big during the month of October. Previous years have featured mini builds, this year it’s all about minifigures.

There are 4 different packs to collect during October, with each being available for a week. To get each pack you will have to spend $100 or more on LEGO, so to get all 4 you are looking at $400 worth of LEGO at least.

With a sale kicking off today (I’ll cover that separately) the first week starts now rather than October 1st.

Here are the packs you can collect…

LEGO’s Latest Minifigure Series – German Soccer Players You Can’t Buy

Even if you aren’t a big fan of Disney characters it’s hard to deny that the Disney Collectible Minifigure series will have a broad appeal. Well the next range of minifigures that LEGO are bringing out have a much smaller target market and a smaller availability to match.

71014 DFB Soccer Minifigures features a lineup of German soccer players. There are 14 players – each featuring a torso print distinguished only by a name on the back, 1 goalkeeper – with a different torso and legs, and the coach – with blue suit torso and legs. Each minifigure comes with a soccer ball, except the coach who comes with a clipboard printed tile.

According to reports the minifigures represent: Manuel Neuer, Shkodran Mustafi, Mesut Ozil, Benedikt Höwedes, Mats Hummels, Sami Khedira, Bastian Schweinsteiger, André Schürrle, Thomas Müller, Jérôme Boateng, Toni Kroos, Mario Götze, Christoph Kramer, Marco Reus, Max Kruse and coach Joachim Loew.

These minifigures are only going to be available in Germany, Switzerland, and Austria so don’t expect to see them on shelves here. If you are after a set you are going to have to buy them online.

German speaking readers might want to check out the announcement video below.

Official Pictures Of The Disney Minifigure Series

We may have already seen the lineup thanks to pictures discovered online back in February but LEGO has posted official pictures of the Disney Collectible Minifigure lineup. You can click on the image for a larger version.

The lineup includes (top row) Syndrome, Ariel, Aladdin, Captain Hook, Donald Duck, Minnie Mouse, Mickey Mouse, Daisy Duck, Maleficent, (bottom row) Stitch, Ursula, Alice, Cheshire Cat, Peter Pan, Mr. Incredible, Buzz Lightyear, Pizza Planet Alien, Genie.

It’s an interesting mix of classic Disney and newer characters.

With the new year rapidly approaching we are seeing more and more images of upcoming products appear online. The latest picture is a look at all 16 of the Series 15 minifigures. After a single concept for series 14 it’s great to see a return to a variety of subjects.

It’s hard to pick a favourite from this lineup. Shark suit guy is a clear contender though.

Disney Minifigure Series For 2016?

LEGO and Disney have been partners for quite a while now. It’s a partnership that has been responsible for a heap of LEGO related products; all of the new Marvel and Star Wars sets fall under the Disney licensing umbrella.

One thing that we haven’t seen is classic Disney characters making their appearance in standard LEGO form. There is Duplo Mickey and Minidoll princesses but no Disney Minifigures. That could be set to change next year with the release of a Disney Collectible Minifigure Series.

Disney Minifigures 2016

There hasn’t been any official confirmation of this rumour, but it has appeared via a few sources. The current reports place this for a May release with Captain Hook and Peter Pan included in the lineup.

What do you think of the idea of a Disney Minifigure series? Amazing or terrible?
