Anyone here find money in their toy budgets for Legos?

It's always been an on-again, off-again sort of thing for me, but now they're selling the Minifigures individually and it's appealing to my "action figure" buying habit even more.

The first series has hit (yellow case) and they're only $2, blind boxed (but easily determined), and have some really awesome designs. I don't like everyone from series one, but Vault bought them all and reviewed them at IAT.

Anyone here planning on picking these up?

First I've heard of them, but if I can find them in a local shop I will pick some up.

Just looking at the box art I can tell I am going to be jonesing for the Luchadore, the Mexican drunk (I'm so sorry I went there), the Ninja, and maybe Green Arrow (I know, I know, its Robin Hood but still ...)

The Pharaoh looks cool as well but I would want some Set or Anubis Guardians to go with him for a nice "Stargate" setup...

If I could figure out which ones were which, I'd definately get some Ninjas.

Now they just need to do this with the Star Wars figures so I can bulk up my population of Stormtroopers on the Deathstar set I built two years ago.

I'm hoping that Lego uses this as a chance to try some really "out there" character costumes.

Maybe a Tiki head, short legged characters, super heroes and villains, etc. in addition to the cowboys, indians (sorry, how am I supposed to refer to them now?), aliens, spacemen, police, firefighters, criminals, et. al.

That's what I hope too. I like a lot of the offering so far, but I hope they go crazy in the next few waves.

Awesome idea from Lego! Somewhere I have a bunch of Spy Legos and the generic Indiana Jones style sets from 6 or 7 years ago. I might have dig them out of storage.

BTW....is that a mime in series 2? Sweet!

I wish they would do this for Star Wars. Can't tell you how many mini-figures I would've liked to have but didn't care for the set they came with.

Oh, man, so true. I got on a kick after playing through LEGO Star Wars a couple years ago but had to put the brakes on after I realized how expensive it would get trying to get individual characters the eBay route. Make it happen!

They do, sort of, with the mini fig magnet 3 packs though they're only available at the Lego store or Lego's online store.

I just bought Ackbar/Leia/C3PO along with Paploo/Biker Scout/Han recently. Basically the sets are just the mini figs plus a magnetic brick for them to stand on and Lego has to do this as part of their licensing agreement so as to not directly compete with Hasbro in the SW figures department.

You saw the minifigs at Toys R Us? I'm going to be at Legoland California next week, and I'll be picking up at least a dozen of these. Thanks for the barcode ID...that'll make this a bit easier. Now I just have to decide which to get.

And for those of you looking for individual characters, an alternative to eBay is www.bricklink.com -- theyy've got good prices and hundreds of sellers. I've bought lots of loose LEGO figures and bricks on there to finish up projects.

LegoLand is a lot of fun, my 8 yr old son LOVED that place. Have a blast!
