So I know this was posted on the main site before, but I'm hoping for an update or something. I've been following a couple discussions about re-releasing sets, and high prices for retired sets, and legend series, and while this topic almost coincides with those, I figured it would be best to start a new one.
Basically what went through my mind was I wanted to purchase a couple more series 1 zombies off bricklink for around 10 bucks each, figuring the prices on them can only go up, so it would be best to snag em now while they're affordable. Right before I checked out I remembered about series 1 being at the BAM bar. So I was wondering if anyone has inside information about future releases or if anyone's talked to an employee who could shed some light on this.
I think the BAM bar is a great idea, it's not technically re-releasing series 1 which would bring the prices down, but it's a good way to get selected elements. As of now they only have I believe 3-4 figs out, but no accessories, and no base plates. So BAM satisfies both cases, people can get the figs they missed out on, but there are elements that will still be unique to the original series. I for one (I'm sure everyone else is with me on this) am just interested in zombie heads or maybe the whole fig, for MOCs/displays, so I don't really care about the base plate or spade/turkey leg. So is anyone else waiting for this possibility or what?

Build-A-Minifig. It's a little station found in Lego stores where you can assemble assorted minifig parts into figures and purchase them. I think its [email protected]$10 in the US.
Here's something I found(about 3 weeks back)...some people have been seeing Series 1 parts at their BAM bars... -
Looks like they found Forest Men, Clown and even Mermaid parts.
I'm going over to my local shop tomorrow to see if they have anything new in their Bam. Last time I found these that they didn't previously have (Blacktron torso's, white space helmets and Atlantis legs).
I'm not certain it's an "officially sanctioned" way of doing the BaM, but it's worth a shot.
I know its more expensive at LEGOLAND, and doesn't include accessories, but it only launched there a few weeks ago when this years season started. Is that where you experienced it?
I didn't know that Legoland isn't owned by LEGO either (Merlin bought it apparently).
I worked at LEGOLAND for 10 years, and the difference in the two eras is so obvious.... All very interesting though.
I am assuming they only handle recent Minifig Torsos - BUT do they ever stock older MiniFigs? Or how about Headgear - is there a good variety?
The last time I was there I found a bunch of pieces that were mostly of Town/City theme.
I'd be happy to see any other torso there, but a CMF1 torso would make my day.
