LEGO is going looney as the latest license to get a Collectible Minifigure series is Looney Tunes, bringing 12 classic cartoon characters to minifigure form for the very first time. LEGO Collectible Minifigures 71030 Looney Tunes blind packs will be officially available April 26, though like usual they’ve been starting to pop up in retail stores for a little while already. To help you get the full crew of ‘toons, we’ve compiled a handy Feel Guide that contains all the info you need to get started.
LEGO Collectible Minifigures 71030 Looney Tunes are available starting April 26 for US $4.99 | CAN $4.99 | UK £3.49. They may also be available from third-party sellers on Amazon and eBay. In the US and Canada you can also buy a pack of six, though it doesn’t appear that LEGO guarantees each character will be unique: US $29.94 | CAN $29.99.
If you’re not sure if you want a full set or just a few of your favorite characters, be sure to check out our in-depth review of LEGO Collectible Minifigures Looney Tunes. Just like Collectible Minifigures Series 21, the Looney Tunes figs come in a case of 36, down from the old case size of 60. Each case is evenly distributed to fit precisely three full sets of the 12 characters in each case.
If you’re aiming to get the full series, the easiest way will be to split a case with a few friends. In fact, many full cases are available on eBay, and some are even cheaper than the retail cost of a full case (which is approximately $180 for 36 packs). As we mentioned in our review, there was a hiccup during manufacturing that resulted in our review case (along with the cases of most other reviewers) containing only 11 of the 12 characters, but LEGO has assured us that most cases should contain the normal distribution with all characters present. Even with our error case, though, there is a distinct pattern to the distribution of characters within the case, which may save you some time sorting. We can’t guarantee that every case will follow this precise pattern, but we’ve found it generally holds true and can save you some hunting for a particular figure.

As with our previous guides, we’ve actually already sorted a full case by feel alone, so the guide isn’t based on guesses, but rather on our own direct experience. The elements we call out in the guide aren’t the only way to ID the figures, but we believe they are the easiest for most people.
Please practice responsible minifigure hunting and respect local and store guidelines for touching merchandise. Always sanitize your hands before and after touching packs.
