Should Lego put an end to blind bag minifigures?

justb1justb1 Member Posts: 28
I’m posting this to gather some people’s views on blind bag minifigures. Trying to figure out if I’m just being an old grump or if others share some of my views. 

I would really like a complete set of the series 2 Disney Minifigures but to be frank I really can’t be bothered with the whole fiasco of either having to stand in the shop for a lifetime feeling a ton of bags to try to find a complete set. Nor do I fancy ordering a complete box and doing the same at home, then once I’ve got a complete set sending back the remaining for a refund or trying to sell the other bags, at potentially a loss. Also there is the option of buying opened bags on eBay, but again this isn’t ideal in my honest opinion. 

It it got me thinking, overall do people actually like and find enjoyment in feeling bags in stores to try and find the desired minifigure, or is it just a pain to everyone. Maybe it’s more fun for kids, really don’t know. I’ve been in the Lego store countless times and seen people doing this and have often wondered how much enjoyment they are actually getting or it’s just sheer determination to get that complete set or the figure they desire. I’ve also witnessed countless times Lego store colleagues doing the same for customers, and have often thought that while this is fantastic customer service is this really good use of their time. 

Now don’t get me wrong, Lego minifigures sold in this way must clearly work for Lego due to the number of series that have been sold, and there’s been no sign of a change to selling in blind bags but I’ve began to wonder how many people actually buy loads of blind bags and get involved in swapping sessions. Do Lego actually run these in stores?? Is it really that much of a money earner and they sell more minifigures that way? 

Just thought id gather some thoughts. Personally if the blind bags and feeling bags works for most there must surely be others that feel the same as me. Perhaps Lego could continue to sell as blind bags but also offer the option of a complete set, perhaps at a higher price than say 18x £2.99.

    Well for me personally, I do enjoy the whole searching out process. I got hooked on CMFs on coming out of my dark age around Series 11 & TLM1. I did most of my catching up of series 1 to 10 on eBay and found a similar level of enjoyment tracking down the best deals I could find. Over subsequent series I’ve refined my bag feeling skills and feel no shame at bag fondling in various retail outlets. For convenience, I’ve also bought a couple of recent series direct from Bricksetters at RRP plus postage but still felt out extras that I wanted.
    I recognise my slightly addictive collecting tendency and got somewhat obsessed chasing down more S18 policemen and WW Percival Graves than I have any reasonable need for, mostly for the thrill of the find and with no intention to resell (sorry, Timmy!).
    It’s not clear if you collect CMFs generally or just like Disney S2 but you’ll probably find opened or sealed sets for sale through the Marketplace thread or through minifig resellers if you’re happy to pay a small premium to avoid the hassle factor of feeling them out yourself.
    And just as a matter of opinion, I think Lego store staffers helping feel out figures for customers is actually a perfect use of their time and a good reason to shop there rather than a generic toy retailer. I enjoy the buzz of trying to feel out a full set just after release and helping others with what they’re looking for at the same time.

    Honestly, I am not a huge fan of blind bags, but I think @CCC is correct, and I also recognize that there are a lot of people like @Gibbo1959 who DO enjoy them.  For the CMF series in particular, I feel much more ambivalent than the outright dislike I usually have for blind bag style sales mechanics, because you CAN identify and get the ones you want if you put a small amount of effort in.  If they were like most of the other blond purchase options I see (IE in a box that you can't feel through) where it was sheer luck, I would probably agree with you @justb1.

    As it is though, I just end up leaning on the services of @MinifiguresPlus to get the full sets when they come out, and occasionally boxes when I know I like all the figures enough.  That way I generally pay about the value of the whole set (and often get a deal!) and don't have to worry about the whole process of picking them out myself.

    I do enjoy standing around searching for particular figures whilst my boys look at the toy aisle. Helps that there hasn’t yet been a series where I’ve really needed each and every one, has made the search more enjoyable

    I dislike them enough that I would pay double for the one that I want rather than search for it myself.

    That said, my granddaughter loves them. It's a surprise every time and we get to have fun together playing guess what's in the bag. Plus, she knows that if we get the one I actually want I get it and she gets all the others plus any dupes. She's still young enough that quantity is always better than quality.

    I have to say that I don't love nor hate the blind bag search. Generally the minifigures are easy enough to identify with a little effort, which I expect if I'm to get my set at RRP, with one of the few exceptions being the HP series which had similar accessories etc making them more difficult.

    The one series I got via 3rd parties was the DFB CMFs both because they weren't widely available in the UK and because I realised just how hard it would have been to find a set given the similarities in hair pieces, footballs, and lack of accessories.

    Staff are generally happy to help too instore which makes the process quicker and as @CCC mentioned any easier means of identifying them would result in the more collectable ones being much harder to find as many would hoard them to resell at a premium at others expense (the chase minifigures are a good example for recent ones which were frustrating and difficult to find as most places were quickly wiped out of them). As an adult I don't mind waiting but I doubt it's easy if you've got children wanting them (and have more than one).

    I’m not a fan so don’t do CMFs. But for the reasons here, and watching kids go nuts over small surprises, I can see why they do it.

    I enjoy the chase of looking for a whole set, I have no shame and will happily fondle the CMF bags in store. While doing this I’ve often got chatting to people curious about what I’m doing, helped people find ones they are after and even introduced a closeted AFOL to the world of AFOLs - it’s surprising in this day and age that some people still think they are alone, but they are out there.

    Blind bag toys are popular with kids as well, if you look at how the range of blind bag toys has increased over the last 5 years you can see how much of a bigger thing it is now than when LEGO started the CMF line. I think a lot of it has been fuelled by the youtube unboxing videos etc, but that’s a corner of the collecting world I stay away from so I could be wrong.

    The type of blind bag products I completely disagree with are the LOL Surprise type nonsense where they have products that cost £50+ and come in hard plastic pods so there is absolutely 0 chance of knowing what you are going to get. To my mind blind bags products are best in the impulse buy category, anything above £10 is utter madness to buy without knowing what’s inside - though I realise that everyone will have a different threshold of what they’ll think is acceptable.

    To my mind this is exactly why there are now so many people who buy a box, ID them and sell them separately. I’m not knocking anyone here, as IDing a full box does take time, but for me I’ve been around 99% accurate on IDing figs since around series 7 (prior to that had a couple of hiccups) so I don’t feel the need to pay someone else to do that for me.

    I have no problems with blind bags because I only buy one and hope for the best.
    I do not buy much of them because I think that buying a bunch of them is not worth it.

    I'm not a fan of blind bags but if doesn't really bother me. For newer series there's a couple of good specialist LEGO retailers in Australia that sell complete sets online, usually a little under RRP. For older series stuff I've been lucky enough to stumble across a few fastidious local BrickLinkers who don't ask for totally over the top prices. Still, if TLG ever decided to drop the idea I'd be all for it. Saves a bit of mucking about.

    I actually enjoy them and am thankful Lego does them in a way you can figure out what you are buying. The one per box (or less) can be a bit tough, but even then the thrill of the hunt, and excitement when you find that one figure. Keep in mind, Lego could go to blind boxes and we would never know which figure we are getting.

    I used to like the fondling for a few series, but these days I prefer to outsource this to other people ;-)

    I don't mind the fondling in-store (and in the official retail store the staff will happily do it for you) as such but the time it consumes, that's another matter...

    I don't mind the hunt or standing at an endcap feeling for the ones I want, but I would say that perhaps TLG should slow down the churn.  My local stores seem to consistently lag 1-2 series behind and in certain cases, they skip over a series entirely because they still have so much inventory from the previous.
  • LordmoralLordmoral Puerto RicoMember Posts: 306
    I don't mind them at all but I would love for the company to incorporate them in sets both large and small, LEGO had some small vignettes with various figures that they sold but stopped as it seems they weren't that popular.
  • klintonklinton CanadaMember Posts: 645
    It's kind of a moot point. Even if you absolutely loathe the concept, the line only exists on account of it's current model. All of the new molded parts and accessories that are generated for this line are justified by the current sales targets, which in turn are based on the blind bag model. 

    I would much rather spend the time feeling for the figures I want than never having the opportunity to get them at all. Whining about it is completely irrelevant.

    The whole concept of a "blind bag" is not new. Sports cards have been doing this for well over 150 years; whether it was hiding cards in cigarette/Tobacco or packs of cards with taffy or gum. I do now what I did back in the day; just buy a box of CMF's and I know I'll have at least 2 full sets and I can trade or keep the extras. 

    As far as paying a premium for sets on Ebay and the like: I don't mind because someone has taken the time to drive to the stores(s) and feel the bags. It's just like anything in life; it is generally cheaper to do all the work yourself than to have someone else do it for you ;)

    I don't mind it.  A little impulse purchase can be fun at times.  I don't even mind chase figures.  But it would be nice if Lego also sold complete sets so you have that option without going through the hassle of feeling up bags.
  • mattytreksmattytreks San Diego, CAMember Posts: 148
    Call me crazy, but I absolutely love the idea of regionalizing at least some product.

    for the blind-bag minifigures, this might mean there is a widely-available minifig or two there are only available in APAC, etc.

    That was each region can have their own version of exclusivity, while being totally accessible to people of that given area.  This, not really a “chase”.

    People might then feel so inclined to go out to auction sites or trade people in other countries in an effort to go from having a complete regional set to having a complete global set.

    Things like this absolutely inject a little more fun and intrigue into a product.  And in my opinion, the people that get upset with things labeled as “regional exclusives” are absolutely welcome to go fly a kite.

    no, it's not an official Lego store, just a local Lego retailer. he has a display board with the figures assembled hanging from pegs.
  • Jern92Jern92 MalaysiaMember Posts: 801
    What I usually find is if I'm not in stores feeling bags within the first hour or two of release, all the desirable figures will be gone. Usually the stores won't open up a new box until there are very few packs left, and I can't exactly wait around for people to buy the unwanted minifigures or buy them all myself, so I end up missing out.

    I guess maybe this isn't a popular opinion reading some of the replies above, but personally I agree with the OP.  I hate the blind bags and find the whole thing to be a hassle and almost anti-consumer.  Can you imagine any other goods besides toys being sold this way?  What if you tried to buy a t-shirt from a store and they made you pick out of a random set of 20 and you had to hope you got the one you wanted?  Just let me buy what I want.

    It obviously makes more money for LEGO this way - that's why they do it.  As some people mentioned, there seems to have been an explosion of this in the toy industry in recent years.  And some people enjoy it or get hooked on it, especially kids.  It actually reminds me of the randomized loot box controversies that are huge in video games right now.  The companies know it works - they have the analytics data and behavioral psychologists on staff; they know what they're doing.  It's gotten to the point where legislation is being considered to ban them because it's essentially (just not technically) gambling that minors can participate in.  Of course digital purchases like that are probably a bigger problem because it's easier for kids to spend money without realizing it, or without the parents knowing.

    I never really saw the appeal in randomized card games like Magic the Gathering and such, either.  So whoever spends the most time and/or money acquiring the best cards has a huge advantage? Doesn't sound like a fun game to me.

    Thankfully, yeah, with minifigs you at least have a decent chance to identify the bags.  But that is still a pain and requires a lot of time.  And I have to imagine LEGO would make them totally random and unidentifiable if they could do it without spending more on the packaging.  After all, they could easily have left the dot code system in place for collectors like us who are in-the-know and it still would have been pretty "random" for your typical parent grabbing a couple for their kids in the checkout line, but they didn't.

    And I think CCC makes a good point about the popular figures selling out fast if they were non-random, assuming they kept the same distributions they have today.  But wouldn't that just mean LEGO wasn't doing a good job of anticipating demand for their products?  Ideally, wouldn't they anticipate that certain figures are going to be more popular, just like they do for full sets?  I think the blind bags just gives them an easy out to basically say, "there are this many out there...if you want figure X you better just keep buying bags and hope to get lucky".

    I acknowledge that part of the issue is I'm not a "collector".  I buy a lot of LEGO, sure, but having a complete set of something never enters into the equation.  So if there are 8/20 figures that interest me, I'd prefer to just buy those.  Offering a full set would be a nice option, but not necessarily ideal for me personally, either.

    I think that's why the baseball card analogy falls flat for me, too.  A baseball card really has very little purpose aside from being part of a collection.  You look at it and you keep it somewhere with others, but it doesn't do anything.  A CMF is a unique toy that serves a useful purpose on its own and that's why it frustrates me that I can't buy it in a straightforward transaction.

    I'm still glad the CMFs exist, but that doesn't mean I have to be happy about how they are sold.  I'm glad cars exist, but I'm not happy about the way those are sold, either (at least in the US).

    Admittedly it's not very common, but I actually remember getting an email from a company offering exactly that.  Probably clearing out stock before xmas or something but it was so many random T's for £10 or £20 etc.  Mostly pop icon type designs; movies/games/bands etc and was pretty good value.  I was actually tempted to buy a set or 2; would've been fine for wearing under coveralls at work etc.

    Apparently, there are people that aren't familiar with companies that offer to send you random stuff for a monthly subscription fee. "Brickloot" is one of them. You have no idea what you are getting in the box every month, yet people still want it. My wife and many of her friends have an Ipsy subscription; they send you cosmetics every month in a "blind bag" and they love it. This model sells and so do the Lego version. You have to remember that Lego is first and foremost geared towards children and young adults and CMF's are and easy grab and buy at the till for parents to appease their kids.

    I really don't get those Lootcrate subscriptions at all. It really is like throwing money away. I wonder how much of the stuff people get sent ends up in the bin.
    As far as the CMF blind bags go, it's kinda fun feeling them up and seeing if you can suss out what one you've got. I normally manage to get it right, and the mistakes i've made have been swapped here on Brickset, which is a bonus of being here.
    Having said all that I will point out that i'm not a completest and only get the two or three of each set that I really want. I only ever got the whole set of Series 1, 2, 14, The two Batman sets and the Harry Potter set.

    It doesn't matter one bit that a lot of people enjoy gambling, Belgium and the EU are coming down hard on gambling products sold to children. Lootboxes are the first target but blind bag toys are surely next. And good riddance. The disgusting behaviour of these companies has gone on long enough. They could have easily avoided being targeted for regulation just by making it possible to buy individual figures and ensuring an even distribution of figures in blind packs.

    I'm happy to put up with the "Blind Bag" game as it allows me to get unique figures and accessories that otherwise wouldn't be produced. I think this is especially true for classic castle, space, and western themes that seem to be on permanent hiatus while TLG is focused on licensed themes.

    Hahaha. What now? There is no correlation between government regulated gambling and blind packaged figures. No matter which figure you get, you will always get a figure for your spend. You get exactly what is advertised. It's nothing like video game lootboxes (or lotto, or casinos), which draw on an infinite pool of possibility where you can spend all day long and never get what you're after. The absolute worst case scenario here is that you buy a box and you will get every figure in the series. It's not an infinite money pit, it's a bit of cheeky fun.

    Nobody is going to come after blind bag figures nor trading cards to appease this level of cringe, I assure you. Your crusade is especially absurd, in a community that claims mortal detriment when redeeming bonus points involves a new extra step. 

    They are exactly the same as lootboxes, and I remember a lot of people laughing at how silly it would be to regulate those. Your opinion is not shared by lawmakers lootboxes are gambling under Belgium law and soon EU law, and rightly viewed as such. Blind pack toys are exactly the same, an unknown reward with an uneven distribution. Its cringeworthy to try to deny it, its what they are. That doesn't mean they need to stop, they just need to stop being gross. If you want to be taken seriously then its time to talk about how far these regulations should go, because they are not going stop because you think its funny.

    Oh, I agree that lootboxes and their ilk are indeed gambling. The regulations are justified and should extend beyond the handful of European countries that have embraced this stance. 

    Blind packaged toys - everything from Kinder Eggs, to Cracker Jacks, to hockey cards, to Lego Minifigs - are another matter entirely. They're aimed at kids who really don't give a rat's ass what they get. Half of the appeal to them is the surprise. Parents are actually buying it for the surprise. If the marketing style doesn't appeal to you as an anal collector...that's completely irrelevant. You were never the intended audience, and it's a pity that your life is so tragically impacted by children's playthings.

    Thats a weird thing to say for someone posting on this forum lol.

    Lootboxes are being regulated because they are so prevalent in games aimed at children, from mobile games to fornite. It never would have made it to lawmakers if this was just about adult customers getting screwed. Things aimed at children like blind pack toys are exactly what they are looking at.

    They're being regulated because they directly resemble regulated games classified as gambling. Purchasing merchandise marketed as a surprise will never be considered "gambling" by anyone, save for disgruntled collectors... who are not the intended market. Why do you think lootboxes caught the eye of regulators while trading cards and Cracker Jacks have been around for generations without any concern? 

    Nobody but you is looking at them this way, I assure you. :)

    Lootboxes are being cracked down on mostly because you only get a digital 'reward' which remains the property of the company.

    Blind bags, you get something physical that is your property.

    These are very different things
