Lego Collectible Minifigures Series 12

The excitement of the new LEGO collectible minifigures series 12 photos have been circulating around the web back in August, with a projected release date of October with a retail price of $3.99.  During the second week of September, images of the people owning the actual minifigures have been popping up in many social media post, showing that some brick and mortar stores have been stocking their shelves with the minifigs ahead of time.  Leaving some of us to wonder if our local stores have them stocked as well.

After viewing the hundreds of posted photos on social media of people finding these minifigs, I figured that maybe my local Walmart, Kmart, Toys r Us or Target might have them stocked in stock.  I visited the stores these stores in different locations for the past 3 weeks starting the second week of September and with no luck I wasn’t able to find a single one.  My hope of finding a store that had released it was the LEGO Store.  I talked to the Store Manager, but he said that the release date that they were going to stock their shelves was October 1st.

eBay

I finally found the minifigures for sale but not at my local store, instead I found them on eBay.  There were a handful of sellers selling the minifigures at almost double the price of retail with a product title listing stating “rare”, which was some what true since they haven’t officially been released.  I wasn’t the only one looking to buy on eBay for my own collection, there were many people that wanted to purchase them before release as well.  Some of the listings when I looked at the stock had something like 9 available (42 sold).

Pig and the GrillThe Game of Life

I eventually bought the Piggy Guy and the Video Game Guy minifigures, which I featured on Instagram, Twitter, Google+ and so on, from a seller that sold them at a decent price, although I was really looking forward to buying the Spooky Girl minifigure to complement my other black and white collectible minifigures but not at $10.00.  But the price does not seem to matter to some because the collectible minifigures may be a rarity in the area where they live, even when it’s released, which brings them to eBay and other online sites to purchase.

Lego Collectible Minifigures Series 12 are indeed finally here! And if you were one of those people that were able to get your hands on some, consider yourself lucky.   Will we be able to find these minifigures in our local stores when they are stocked? If you see them, then chances are that you better buy some before the next time you visit the store they’ll be sold out.
