    @kbw He usually posts either in this thread or will create a new one.  Just email him with your paypal address and he will send an invite.  While I am sure it is a finite number I've only seen him run out once and shut down pre-orders.  Disney I think, but can't recall right now.

    He'll be the only one you cannot find, as someone else got there first and really needed him (for ebay).

    ^I scored a pretty large amount of these in a bulk lot I bought a few months back. Maybe I'm sitting on a fortune now? I'll be tens of dollars richer in a matter of years!

    Thank you Series 18 Figs!

    @MinifiguresPlus Do you plan to have a complete set including the police minifigure, or will it just be the two listed? (Also, thanks for the update!)

    We do not have a pre-order price as of now, so the complete sets are without the police officer.

    Funny, I browsed their eBay store and they are listing the series 18 figures individually for $9.99 each!  The lone exception is the Classic Cop which they have at $49.99.  Do people really pay that much for something they could get for less than half the price in a store?

    Probably not, but even if one person is foolish and purchases, it is totally worth their time to putting up the free listing.  Hate this about eBay.

    While the classic police officer is technically less rare than Mr. Gold, you would think that the Mr. Gold controversy would have been remembered when making this decision. 

    Aside from that, I really do wish that we will get a regular CMF series in the future. That being said, this one’s a pretty good release. It’s just that.......LEGO, we all love you, but did you forget about the Mr. Gold fiasco? It happened right around the end of my dark ages, but I did read up on it eventually.
  • CaptainLegoCaptainLego FloridaMember Posts: 373
    Honestly, something like this sounds like it has little to do with the actual designer or designers, but more so the business side of things. Maybe they just assumed everyone forgot about Mr. Gold?

    Bottom line, the figure, like anything else on eBay, is worth what someone is willing to pay. Would I pay 49.99? No. I have a hard time paying more than 5 dollars for a figure, let alone 3.99 for a CMF figure, but if someone wants to pay it no one is holding a gun to their head, nor is this eBay's fault, or the sellers for that matter.

    That said, I despise this figure being one per box. To me, it stops you from getting a set of Series 18. Mr Gold is annoying, but he was only a chase figure, he was not on the checklist for his series and therefore, at least to me, he is not part of that set. If this figure appears on the checklist, and it sounds like he does, then this sucks for anyone wanting a truly complete set. It also means you get one complete set per box. poor move by LEGO and I hope this is not a re-occurring thing in future CMF sets as to me it is as bad as a price increase on each pack.

    I still have my original police minifigure! He looks like CCC's: sticker a little worn. I also have the #6000 Idea book with one copy of that sticker unused. I don't have much interest in this series. I think it's a neat idea, but I don't really want any of them- except the policeman. But at one per case, I'm not even going to try.

     So. I'll probably pick up a box. When you guys break yours down, can someone post the order they are in the box? I plan on keeping a complete set with policeman and throwing rest in as party favors for my son's birthday in May.

    Anyone else looking forward to the war stories of triumph and sorrow in the hunt for the policeman? It has gotten rather stale around here with not much in the way of new set news or big discounts being found.

    I am, especially because I'm just getting a box, so I know I'll have mine.  I'll be able to sit back and eat my popcorn stress free!

    I don't think they did forget. Also I don't think it was a fiasco for them. They sold boxes and boxes on the back of it. Sure it may have pissed off some collectors, but they kept on collecting.

    Now, they've remembered having a very rare figure pissed (some) people off, so they've done something similar but made him much less rare. In fact, 1 per box is not rare at all, it is just uncommon. It is also a figure that many people will not care about. Remember, while there are collectors, the biggest market for these is kids. They'll probably want the fancy colourful figures rather than the boring old fashioned policeman. One per box will mean kids won't get pissed off getting loads of a boring figure, and if fact if their parents realise it could probably be sold on to pay for a few extra figures. While he is less common, I cannot see him going for much more than $15-20, at least not while they are available in stores.

    You only need to see how may people are saying they are just going to buy the box. Lego knows that. Their plan works.

    I was in a Target, feeling CMF packets several series ago, when another customer saw me and said, "Are you a secret shopper?" I said, "No." She said, "I know you are." and walked away. I wonder what she would have concluded if I'd said yes...

    Just remember, if you're part of the conspiracy and you admit, then the conspiracy was true, and if you deny that you're part of the conspiracy... well, that's exactly what someone who was part of the conspiracy would say, so obviously you are part of the conspiracy, and the conspiracy was true.

    If you were trying to figure out what was in a blind packet - wouldn't that make you a un-Secret Shopper?

    @Bosstone100 - Yes, it was three minifigures from the back in the left hand row. I don't know whether this will be consistent.

    It should actually be fairly easy to find the Classic Police Officer as most of the packets bulge a great deal as they contain large pieces. The Police Officer really stands out in that regard.

    I'm sure someone tested the order idea before, and it depends on the location. The US ones were different to European boxes.

    It's a shame they had to do five of each of the brick suits, but I guess it is their thing.

    That’s a good point. He’s less common, but not Mr. Gold rare, so anyone who gets a sealed box will get one.

    Anyone know the North American release date for Series 18?
  • samtheqsamtheq USAMember Posts: 47
    I keep hearing April 20 is the release, which is a release date for other new Lego items.

    Here's a good question:  in the past, are all boxes of CMF identical in their internal make-up? If there are 3, 4, and 5 of some figures in a box that we've seen, does it mean it will be that way for ALL boxes, that you may run into anywhere?
