An official image of the series 12 collectible minifigs surfaced today, revealing the full lineup for the October 2014 release. The retail price will be $3.99.
EDIT (AB): As always, here’s our best guess at what these figs could be called (pending the official names from LEGO closer to the release):
- Rock Star
- Princess and Frog Prince
- Japanese Horror-Movie Ghost
- Pizza Delivery Guy
- Space Dude
- Pig Suit Guy
With the announcement of 10242 Mini Cooper, we missed covering LEGO Idea’s announcement of their next set: 21110 Research Institute, based off of Ellen Kooijman’s Female Minifigure set.
LEGO sent Ellen an advance copy of the set, which she has revealed on her blog. She takes us step by step through the box art, the construction, and includes observations about her profession and the stories the vignettes tell.
I wanted to highlight, too, this fantastic telescope design for the astronomer. I am so excited for this set to come out!
There doesn’t seem to be word yet on pricing or when it will be available, though it appears to be on target for an August release.
If you’re curious to see what other comic book characters look like in the style of Lego’s Hulk, then The Brick Creator has just what you’re looking for with their 3″ Hulk-sized “EPICFIG” figures. Shown below are Rhino, Venom, Hulkbuster Armor, Colossus, and Juggernaut. Check out Flickr for more photos on how they’re made and visit their Facebook page for details on how to purchase them.
The London Toy Fair revealed that the Series 10 Minifigures will contain 5,000 gold minifigs randomly distributed across the world. Sounds interesting, what do you think?
