Anyone have extras of Series 1 or 2. It seems I am addicted to these now...

Who has found these?
Where?
Are there any packaging "clues" as to what is in each pack?

They are overdue at this point aren't they?

I am completely addicted to them and can't wait to get my next fix!

I saw them at my local TRU last week in Los Angeles. Picked up 3 of them - rocker, geisha, and sailor. They are still using the bump system. There is a cheat sheet out there for this wave already.

I was at Legoland, Ca last week and they didn't even have wave 4 yet, just a ton of wave 3. I was able to get the gorilla... now I'm just missing the cyborg for wave 3!

I love them too, I have slightly over 100, mostly of series two.

However, the whole thing is a bit annoying. When I finally find some of the Lego Minifigures in the store all the good ones have been taken. Lego should stop putting any individual markings on these at all, only then will people truly be able to enjoy the fun and mystery.

Yup, seen these at TRU. First time I've seen them have several (3 to 5) cases at one time.

Here we go again...

So I go into my local TRU today after reading that some of you have found them. When I walk down the Lego aisle I am greeted by the Lego merchandiser and we start talking while she stocks the shelves. I ask about the Minifigs and she comments on how great they are, how popular, wonderful idea, etc.

I ask where they are?

She smiles and says, "I just put 3 boxes up at the customer service desk."

I thank her and head up front.

I don't see them, but I KNOW they are there (I was just told after all) and wait in line for the Customer Service girl to be free. Finally, my turn, and I ask for the Minifigs.

"Sorry, they are limited to 5 per person per visit." Ugh.

She reaches down pulls out 5 packs at random and hands them over to me. "Sorry, you can't exchange them, ask for a specific dot pattern, or go through the box yourself. We have too much theft on these. This is how its done."

UGH!!!

I understand, but, UGH!!!

So, I have the Punk Rocker (x2), Werewolf, Surfer Girl, and Race Car Champion (what is he supposed to be exactly?).

Guess I'm going to have to rely on trades and eBay to get the set unless Target starts stocking them again.

The Race Car Champion is actually a Soccer Player.

Yeah, thanks.

I saw that once I got the decoder. But I appreciate the heads up regardless.

Lego really should start putting security tags inside the minifigure packages. Then stores wouldn't have to keep them behind the counter. If trading card companies can do it, why not Lego?

They don't need to put a tag in every package, just randomly insert 1 tag per 3 minifigs. This would prevent people from indiscriminately cramming a ton in their pockets (or if women, purses) and walking out.

So, apparently my local TRU is now selling these 2 per person per day.

Awesome, and still at their random selection.
Collecting these is going to be more difficult than JLU at this rate...

Just got back from my now daily run to TRU

added 3 more today to the mix (and with it being their choice and utterly random of course 2 of them were dupes.)

So...

My Series 4 collection is now"
Kimono Girl
Musketeer
Punk Rocker (x3)
Surfer Girl
Hockey Player (I wouldn't mind if these were my doubles, it is play off season after all :wink: )
Soccer Player
Werewolf (x2)
Artist

Anyone willing to trade or sell their dupes, I am all for it.

I have around one hundred minifigures from series two, the only one I don't have extras of from that series is the spartan warrior.

Why do you have 100?

Are you that bad at decoding them? :P
