Starting today, LEGO Collectible Minifigures 71032 Series 22 are now available, bringing 12 more unique characters to your LEGO collection ranging from a Robot Repair Tech to a Forest Elf. Just like last year’s Minifigures Series 21, if you want the full set of 12, you should be in luck as every case contains three complete sets. LEGO’s blind packaging prevents you from seeing the figures, but we’re here to help you feel your way to getting exactly the figures you want. So we’ve compiled a handy guide that contains all the info you need to get started.
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 Series 22. But before we get to the Feel Guide, it’s worth noting that the easiest way to get a full set is to buy a case. Each case contains exactly three complete sets of characters. That means you can split a case with a few friends or have lots of extras yourself. 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).
For a few series now, we’ve found that the packs in our review cases weren’t randomly distributed but instead have a pattern, so here’s a graphic of what we found with our case. We can’t guarantee that every case will have exactly this distribution so don’t rely on it exclusively, but it may work as a handy starting point in conjunction with the Feel Guide. And obviously, this will only be helpful if you get your hands on a brand new case that hasn’t had any removed or shuffled. Note that this is a top-down view of a case, so the case front is at the bottom.

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.
