Hi LEGO fan!

I really like the new line of collectible LEGO figs, but I don’t live anywhere near a LEGO Store. Do you know if there is any option for folks like me? I know that many people have gotten their hands on them (enough that Eurobricks has held a contest based on them) and some people have been able to buy cases. So, my question:

Are there any retail outlets, other than LEGO Stores, that sell them? Are there any places that sell cases? Are there any plans for LEGO to sell them through U.S. Shop @ Home? Or are my only options ebay, bricklink, amazon, etc.?


Dear Brad,

The figures are selling out at North American Toys R Us stores in around two weeks.  This is due to the small supply (around two cases) that each store is receiving.

The figures will be available on Shop at Home soon:

Figures will be sold individually from SAH.  We do not yet know if customers will receive a sealed case if they order that quantity of figures.

    Sadly, I live nowhere near a Toys R Us, either. 🙂 Them’s the breaks, eh? I’ll have to keep my eyes on LEGO Shop @ Home or pick some up via BrickLink.

    Thank you for answering my question!

    In fact, the Collectible minifigs are on the U.S. Shop @ Home page now. They are available, one each for $1.99, limit of 5 per customer.

    Just found out, that if you live in the US, and TRU isn’t cooperating with you to get a full box, or the display box when it’s empty you have a new option. You can order LEGO Minifigures Series 1 Display Box from Entertainment Earth! Right now, it’s a preorder situation, but if you have the coin, you know this way you would get 3 complete sets and some extras. Maybe you can go in on it with friends or what have you.
