Series 10 Collecible Minifigures Image & Series 11 info

Tormentalous18Tormentalous18 Member Posts: 29
Just found an image of the Series 10 poster with minifigs displayed and Series 11 info. They sure look like the ones that we saw back in November. Any thoughts?

    Those look cool, there's also info about the golden figure and there's a picture of the bumble bee woman here: http://www.hothbricks.com/2013/01/collectible-minifigs-series-10-une-image-chez-joueclub/

    Oooh. Neat. Not the best picture, but then these premature leaks usually never are. Does pretty much solidify many of the renderings on Eurobricks. If only I could see Medusa's legs though...

    Thanks!

    ^ medusa's legs... Medusa's LEGS!?

    If medusa doesn't look like Ray Harryhausen's, I'll be peeved. :o(

    ...Right, did ninjaga have any brown snake tails?

    *goes off muttering*

    :o)

    The chance of getting a golden minifig may just make me jump into buying a box. I'm sure somebody already has a weighing scale ready. This release is going to be wild,
  • GIR3691GIR3691 Member Posts: 674
    5000? That sounds like less than one per box. Now I don't even care.

    I wonder how many boxes are actually released. I feel because of the golden figure, extra boxes will be released just because of the fact that most will try to buy boxes to see.

    Now to mention now that most display cases hold 16 minifigures, so the extra one will throw that off

    I hope the golden figure is just a gold version of one of the original 16 or if there are 16 different gold versions. That way everyone has a chance as opposed to the employees/people that get to the box right away and know what to feel for.

    It is just the introduction of a super rare, which has happened in collectible card games since almost forever.
    I'm not sure it is a good thing for AFOL's, it will be good for Lego.
    It does give "collectors" one more thing to collect.

    I just hope I can find a few when series 10 is reduced to 50p by some shop like Tesco or Argos.
    Actually I doubt that we will ever see such bargainous CMF again, as all the figures will be sold to people trying to find the golden figures. :(

    Would be good to know how many boxes of each series of CMF were produce\sold, just to give us a rough idea of the likely ratio of boxes per limited edition Figure, 1 in every 2 or 1 in every 200. This makes a big difference to our likely hood of finding one.

    I love it. Won't deter me in the least. I will buy my boxes like I always do.
  • VenunderVenunder Grimsby, UK.Member Posts: 2,620
    I would expect 1 gold figure in 100 boxes or 1 in 200.
    If Lego really try to milk this it could be as low as 1 in 1000 boxes.
  • Pitfall69Pitfall69 0 miles to Legoboy's houseMember Posts: 11,453
    If this minifigures is truly a chase figure, then I would expect one to be in almost every box or 1 in a case.

    Ouch! Only 5000 worldwide? Great for LEGO, horrible for parents, kids and collectors. 1 in every 10 boxes or so would be nice. But 1 in every box would make them too common.
  • samiam391samiam391 A log cabin in PA, United StatesMember Posts: 4,431
    ^That's true.

    If they have defined as the total number of figures at 5,000, than there is no possible way that there will be one in ever single box.

    I'm quite sure that LEGO sells more than 5,000 boxes of CMFs ;-)
  • VenunderVenunder Grimsby, UK.Member Posts: 2,620

    Considering the size of the world market 5000 figures have to be spread quite thinly.

    Tesco have over 6000 stores in the UK alone, as most ? stores get 3 boxes of each CMF series ?
    that would give 1 figure in every 3rd or fourth box if all 5000 gold figures were just in Tesco and just in the UK.
    Since that is not going to happen, 1 gold figure in every 100 boxes seems most likely to me.


  • brickupdatebrickupdate Member Posts: 1,020
    Maybe I'm late to this discussion, but the part about being able to track which figures have been found, and able to interact with figures online seemed new to me.

    And yes, 5,000 seems like not that many, which is fine by me. It creates something more truly rare, but something accessible, unlike the con-exclusive figures.
  • Thanos75Thanos75 Member Posts: 1,120
    How many boxes come in a case and where is the best place to buy CMF's by the box/case?...straight from LEGO?
  • Pitfall69Pitfall69 0 miles to Legoboy's houseMember Posts: 11,453
    Can't buy boxes from Lego

    I didnt think you could but I wasnt sure. I have yet to see any of the series 9 in my area...
  • yys4uyys4u USA SoCalMember Posts: 1,093
    This is horrible news in my opinion... Don't get me wrong, I'd LOVE to find one of these gold figures, but that's the problem, having been a CMF collector since the start and having complete sets of all thus far (plus A LOT of extras) the thought of "missing" this one gold figure is going to hurt. I can't even imagine the prices they'll fetch on ebay...

    This could technically end up being twice as expensive as the 1 in 10,000 c3po? Imagine that, the first $1,000 plastic minifigure! :-)

  • YodaliciousYodalicious DagobahMember Posts: 1,366
    ^Which is odd because I'm the opposite. Only TRU has them in my area (but I refuse to pay $3.19). There's only one WM that I know of that ever carried CMFs and they stopped with Series 7. And the K-Mart in my area has a LEGO aisle that never consists of more than 5 different items.

    Basically, I'm waiting not-so-patiently for Target to get them in.

    I don't really care about gold figs but there are some really great new figs and parts in series 10/11. :)

    No, sorry, not happening. Just because a figure is twice as rare in quantity as another, does not mean that it's price will also be twice as rare.

    Plus, until we have even more information about the figures, we really can't even get close to giving it a price. But twice the price of Chrome C-3PO? No sir.

    And like others have already said, the NYTF figures have already well surpassed that mark. They're netting $3,500 easy in a lot of cases now a days.

    LOL, This is probably true, I find my self doing similar things. Thinking something I purchased was 12 months a go, I go and find the recipt and what do you know, it was only 6 months ago. Not so good when you realise how much money you spent on Lego in half the amount of time you thought :P

  • skherbeckskherbeck Member Posts: 33
    I'm glad these are going to be rare (i.e., not 1 per box). It takes the pressure off me as a collector... I'll just purchase my usual 2 boxes and leave it at that. However, If there was going to be 1 or 2 in every box, I might be tempted to buy a few more boxes and try to get some of them. With 8 different ones, and only 5000 total, thats only 625 of each type of golden figure. I think these will be ridiculous on e-bay!
  • yys4uyys4u USA SoCalMember Posts: 1,093
    ^Where did u see there are 8 different ones? Does anyone know if they will be figures from series 10 that will be gold? Or will it be a completely new random gold figure? Or as someone mentioned earlier, a figure from an older series turned gold?

    I imagine most likely they'll pick one (or 8) figures fron this series and make them gold. That way it would be impossible to distinguish by feeling the bag whether or not you have a gold one.
  • kwkwkwkw USAMember Posts: 1,207
    If the gold fig is one of the 16 then ill just get my fav out of the 16 which will probably be the roman commander :)
  • samiam391samiam391 A log cabin in PA, United StatesMember Posts: 4,431

    You want to know something sad?

    That was once mine.

    I almost never disclose business transactions, but I sold the item to that buyer for a whopping $700 less than one year ago.

    Talk about seller's remorse. :-(
  • Pitfall69Pitfall69 0 miles to Legoboy's houseMember Posts: 11,453
    ^We really don't know much right now. Will the gold figure be one of the 16? Will a box with the gold minifigure have 60 or 61 packets? Will they be in the same package as the regular CMF's? Will the gold figure be chrome gold? How many boxes of Series 10/11 will TLG make and distribute? Will you get a chance to obtain one if you buy directly from [email protected] or are they in boxes only?

    Does anyone know?
  • skherbeckskherbeck Member Posts: 33
    User "bricksan" stated under the forum topic "Toy Fair 2013 news":
    "Series 10 of the Collectable Minifigs will be gold and in the series will be 8 golden minifigs hidden to find, expect this series to be massive."

    I was talking to Lego store manager about the upcoming gold figs being limited to 5000. He mentioned he had seen some artwork or the case artwork, not sure which, that showed a 17th fig peering out from behind the set of 16. He was wearing a top hat…???

    If that turns out to be the gold fig, then identifying the right bag would seem a lot easier. No other fig had a top hat…..

    As far as comparing the Marvel Toy Fair figs, don't confuse rarity for desirability. Desirability trumps rarity more often than not.
  • Pitfall69Pitfall69 0 miles to Legoboy's houseMember Posts: 11,453
    ^That is correct, but 2 CMF's that I'm aware of had top hats. This is one scenario that we haven't discussed. Will the gold minifigures be one from the past CMF Series?

    This is good for me, if it's not a golden roman commander then I'm less likely to care for this fig, which in the end saves me lots of $$$. :)

    I think we're talking an exclusive figure here. I don't see the series 1 magician, series 6 leprechaun or series 9 Mr Good and Evil as a celebratory figure. I think its most likely to be some sort of 'millionaire/moneybags' type figure if it really does have a top hat.

    I'd also hazard a guess at it being pearl gold and not chrome, just from a printing point of view. Though I'd love to be wrong.

    I think his point is no other fig in series 10 is meant to have a top hat, so identification by feeling would be easier.

    I'm still not that excited about the gold figures. They don't really fit in with any theme, unless you have them as a statue. And then it depends on what they predict.

    But that is the view of someone that doesn't collect them all, but collects specific ones.

  • Pitfall69Pitfall69 0 miles to Legoboy's houseMember Posts: 11,453
    ^Ahhhh. I see. If you happen to get a gold minifigure, all you have to do is sell it and you will have the money to buy more of the minifigures you collect :)
