LEGO’s new Collectible Minifigures Series 16 is hitting stores around the world, so be sure to check out our review of Series 16. But how do you find the ones you want? Some people are happy taking their luck with purchasing a random bag, but many fans — be they kids, collectors, or just regular joes — will want to collect the whole set, or maybe just one or two very specific figures. You could guarantee that by purchasing an entire case, but buying 60 figures just to guarantee a set of 16 is very expensive. So, of course, the alternative is to ready your nimble figures and prognosticate what’s in the bags by touch alone. With years of experience doing this since Series 1, we’re here to help make that task a bit easier.
Get your digits ready, it’s time to start poking and prodding plastic bags of minifigs.
