I was wondering if you could answer a few questions about the first round of collectable minifigs that are set to be released in June 2010?

1. Are these exclusive to Lego Stores and/or Lego Shop@Home?

2. Will there be different levels of rarity (i.e. common, uncommon, rare)?

3. Has TLG stated how many bags will be in a case or display?

4. What countries will these be released in?

Some of this info may or may not be available yet, but anything you might have (or be able to uncover) would be great.

Dear Kyle,

Rumor has it that these figures will be available in multiple retail locations.  The display photo indicates 32 packages per case.  Logically these would contain two copies of each 16 different figures.  We do not yet know which countries will receive the sets.

The larger issue will be supply and demand.  Resellers and AFOLs will likely go to stores and buy an entire case.  Hopefully TLG will offer entire cases on Shop at Home or a later “complete set” version for collectors.  This could be similar to offerings from sports card companies.

Sincerely,

LFan
