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?
I’ve read elsewhere that the release date is April 1st.
$5? Odd. Lego Shop at home is saying $3.99 - they have it posted and "coming soon".
Called into Smyths in Galway today and saw they had a box at one of the closed registers so dove in and managed to snag the 17. Had some weird looks from the girl on the register beside me and the security guard by the door! :-) But they were impressed I was able to work out what was in each bag
Stopped by Target today and saw them hanging by registers. Easy to spot. Was surprised. Spent time finding the ones I wanted including a police man. Went to self checkout and it wouldn't ring up. Lady came over and tried. Didn't work. She called someone. Guy comes over, plugs in a bunch of codes and tries. Still doesn't work. Says they can't sell until 4/1. He confiscated them and proceeded to go down the isle collecting those that were put out. I wasn't too happy with that.
I would have just gone and picked up an equal number of Batman or other cmf and rang out that way. Leave the Batman figs and take the series 18. At least for the cop.
Found them at my local Tesco (Bradley Stoke for anyone in the area) - three boxes already rifled and police men removed (unless my feeling skills have failed which is also possible...)
There is never a police man about when you want one!!
Ever since I struggled to get the diver in Series 1 (box stats anyone?) and practically fainted when I happened to get one loose without feeling it, I think my luck was spent.
4 Cowboys, Forestmen, Magicians, Robots, Spacemen, Cavemen
5 Deep Sea Divers, Demolition Dummies, Ninjas.
I struggled to find a cheerleader to complete my set and a few more for a squad. Then once I had managed that, I discovered the bar code thing. Doh! I still recall how chuffed I was I found the cheerleaders at last, even if the shortcut was too late.
So far I've managed to grope my way to complete sets of all CMFs without ever having picked a double (unless I chose to do so). I remember having a printout of the early series barcodes to compare with packs so as to get them all. The only series I couldn't do that for, as they weren't available over here in Ireland, were the German Football team and the UK Olympics set - those I had to buy (possibly here).That is... until now...In my haste on Saturday to get the series picked quickly and then pick up food before heading home, I managed to pick 2 sodding flower pot girls instead of 1 and a Birthday Cake guy. Needless to say I'm annoyed. Never happened before. Normally I check for several markers to verify contents but I didn't do it this time - just felt something round and took it that was it. Now I'm going to have to wait til next weekend before I can try and get it to finish the set. Dang it.
