    If I see 5.99 on the tag, they will be left in the store. I will not be buying figures for 6 dollars, accessories or not.

    Let's not give them any ideas!  

    (Or save $5.99 for Disney CMF S2.)

    Yeah...please no ideas to TLG, $5.99 for one minifigure with minimal accessories is a no-buy for me. Might as well buy the smaller sets with four minifugures than these.

    Oh...yeah. I forgot about that giant box of Lesters that passed through your care. No one got seventeen though, did they?

    I am very happy to say that the most duplicates I've had was maybe two or three. I don't even have more than two of the same Stormtrooper (that's kind of a problem though).

    In all fairness, the folks at TRU marked them down to $0.99.  I bought them all.

    Also got me a few Dareth Ninjago polys that were reduced to $0.69.  I regretted that.  Couldn't give those things away!

    I would've taken one. I loved that Dareth polybag. One of my favorite TRU exclusive polys, but to be fair, I am a big fan of the Ninjago theme.
  • AnnaBuildsLegoAnnaBuildsLego IrelandMember Posts: 11
    These do look great! I definitely have pause if they really are that expensive, though. 4 euro is already really pushing it for a single figure, if they bring it up to 5 I might only get one or two figures and leave it at that.
  • SumoLegoSumoLego New YorkMember Posts: 11,724
    I suspect there will be a massive amount of these available.

    I'm thinking along the lines of TLBM or TLNM, or Disney, or S14 Monsters.

    Those early series all had similar production runs, but there was far less demand.  I was convinced that there was twice as much S3 as S1 or S2, but there was just a decrease in demand.

    That's £5.99 not $5.99, at least not yet. It's about $8.50. Same with the Hamley's Royal Guard. Yes, LEGO, people are willing to pay that and more for a single figure and accessory (even without the stand).

    Yes, people are buying polys for 5.99 USD (including myself), but to do it for polys x1, or even x5. However, would I do it for x17, 22, or even 16? No, I wouldn't.

    If you flip it around, you have a LOT of people that will refuse to buy 5.99 polys, but have no problem buying the CMFs for 3.99 USD. So that tells me that, again, you lose more buyers than gain by raising costs, and last time I checked LEGO wants to make money (heck this talk of bumping the prices).
    I just fail to see these sticking around for long if they cross that 4 USD threshold. If they do, sales will likely decrease with the price increase, and likely will need to be kept behind a counter due to an increase in theft (and likely so much for feeling them out)

    ^ Add that to the fact that they seem so easily available the past couple of years (at least where I am), and they’ll really sit at $5 or even $6. The amount of TLNM and TLBM2 on shelves at my Targets and Walmarts is crazy. Last time I remember a series being even a little scarce was S14. Since then, each series has been stocked well enough that there are a great deal available for the next two (even three) series to come out. I think it was S16, Disney, TLBM, and S17 that were all on shelves at the same time in my area. Some of the Targets had them falling off the display they were packed so tight.

    I'm sooo excited for series 18!!! There are so many I LOVE, I don't know which one is my favorite. Probably the kid race car and the firecracker. But I love the cactus and cowboy too! 
  • smileyvalsmileyval United StatesMember Posts: 24
    I think the only thing I wish, is that there was another baby lego. I LOVE the cute little baby legos. It's what my kids like the most. They even made a Lego Baby Nursery. https://ideas.lego.com/projects/e3b2331c-a53f-4c20-8183-c30deef42b4a

    Ah. If I found a poly for 0.99, I would have bought them all too! The Dareth poly isn't that bad, it's got a cool Nindroid.
  • FauchFauch FranceMember Posts: 2,254
    cmf used to cost 2 to 2 € 50 until the price got bumped to 4€. even for 2€ they didn't seem to sell that much. for 4€, it looks like the nearby shops may just have given up selling them.
  • SumoLegoSumoLego New YorkMember Posts: 11,724
    One of the independent toy stores in my area occassionally carry them at a whopping $5.99. 

    I'll pay the shipping through BrickLink, thank you very much, if I were ever that desparate.

    Yeah, when the Disney series came out, the only place that had them in my area for the longest time was a local toy store where regular price was $6. I finally gave in and bought them there when they had them on sale, cost me about $4.50 each.

    That mouse piece looks adorable! I will probably be buying multiples of the elephant suit girl. It's fun that I always get a lot of CMF:s, but it's not really the figs that I'm interested in...

    Not to mention it’s the only way to get Dareth unless you feel inclined to buy the Temple of Aitjitzu or someone’s figure from it.

    They're different though, so that version is polybag exclusive.

    Eh, it's not as bad as it could've been honestly - whilst it sounds a tad irritating to feel for (a one in 60 chance is... yeah), at least it ain't completely impossible to obtain like with Mr Gold innit

    Some speculation here ...

    Given that there are 17, I wonder what the distribution will be like. It'll be interesting if one is rarer (maybe one per box). And if one is rare, it makes sense that it is the odd one out, the policeman. The classic figure that is there all by himself in a series that he doesn't seem to belong. So people could end up paying $20-30 or something crazy for a figure that would probably be $1 on BL.

    Yeah, my speculation was correct!

    This was the one minifigure I was most excited about, so of course this would be limited and a pain in the rear to find.

    yeah, it could have been the dragon you only have 1 in 60 chance to get. it's not like you won't all solve the problem by buying the whole box.
  • truck730truck730 Member Posts: 199
    Every so often don't CMF minifigs make their way into sets so collectability is pointless plus the bases aren't really functional even to make a podium ,how many podiums would a city need, price is also off putting, even at 3euro they're not value

    'There is not a problem in the world that cannot be solved with money'.. yeah yeah... The problem is it makes it infinitely more difficult to get more than one complete set from a box.
    If I buy a box it is because I can get three whole sets from it. That will not be the case here. Take Mr Gold. IMO Mr Gold was a specialty figure, not really part of the set as it were (because it was specifically a chase figure). Nor does he show up on the figure checklist pamphlet that comes which each figure (yeas, he is on the back due to the promotion, but does not really appear as part of the set IMO).

    It appears the Cop is part of this set, so if you miss him you do not have a whole series 18... Poor move by LEGO IMO. Now, if the cop does not appear on the checklist? Then maybe he is a 'chase' figure and really not needed to 'complete' the set, there is always that. We will not know until someone posts the checklist for the figures

    The bases are perfectly functional. I've got about 300 Blackmore's that I use for roofs.

    From New York Toy Fair, the cop is dead-center on the blind bag and in the middle of the checklist.

    I personally think it should have been a modern printed face with the classic body. 

    Finding him will be painful.

    (Actually, it should be pretty easy.  He'll be the only flat bag in the case.)
