Lego Series 12 Minifigures – the complete set.
Which one is your favorite?
Today I learned that Lego Minifig Series 12 came out. It actually was released on October 1, 2014, and I’m 3 days late in hearing about this. I guess I’m not as well connected into the Lego World as I thought I was. But as soon as I heard about it, I looked up the sets at the Lego store, to see if it was real, and it was!
There were 16 new poly bags released, each with a new, original Minifig. I had to have them all. And I had to have them right away. I didn’t want to order them on-line and have to wait 2-3 days to have them shipped to me. So I got in the car, and drove to my nearest Target store. I got some Series 11 Minifigs at this store before, and I was hoping they had the new Series 12.
They did! There was a display at the end of the Lego aisle with the Yellow Polybags. Plus there were a lot there. I don’t think very many people had discovered them yet, so I had my choice. And I bought a bunch of them. I picked up 20 Minifigs, hoping that I would get at least one of each. I paid only 2.99 per Minifig. They were less expensive at Target than at the Lego store. I only paid $2.99 per poly-bag instead of the $3.99 being advertised on shop.lego.com. I also looked on Amazon.com and couldn’t find single poly bags, only the massive 60 pack series 12 retail set that you see at stores. The price was $277 for 60 pags ($4.16 per minifig).
Details about the Series 12 Lego Minifigs
There are 16 different Minifigs in this new series. It was released in October of 2014. They come in unmarked yellow poly bags. Inside each bag is a dis-assembled, but complete Minifig, a black display plate, and a small piece of paper with photos of all 16, as well as a special code you can enter on-line to play a massive multi-player lego game with.
These are the 16 different series 12 Lego Minifigs:
- Space Miner
- Battle Goddess
- Dino Tracker
- Piggy Guy
- Hun Warrior
- Fairytale Princess
- Pizza Delivery Man
- Video Game Guy
- Spooky Girl
- Genie Girl
- Rock Star
Like I said, I bought 20, and was hoping for one of each, but I got a several duplicates, and even a few triplicates, so I’m going to have to go back and buy some more bags tomorrow to complete my set. You can click on each of the names in the list above to see photos, and a description of each of the new Series 12 Lego Minifigs.
When I bought the packs, I tried to look for some bump codes, or other distinguishing marking to see if I could tell the difference in each pack. While I have read about people trying to feel for differences in each bag, I just decided to buy as many as I could hoping I would get one of each. There was a production code at the bottom of the poly bags, however- 421B4. Each of my bags had this code, but I couldn’t find any bump codes, or other markings to help you figure out which minifig is in each bag.
I’m not sure what I will do with the duplicates right now. I guess I’ll add them to my collection. You can never have too many Lego, right?
