Priced £1.99 and max 16 per customer. However I don't know if that is enforced: I placed two orders each for 16. We'll see if one gets cancelled. Order them here. (thanks kram)

I've placed multiple orders for minifigs with past series... in each case, S@H took the initial order, but eventually cancelled all orders over the limited quantity, so don't get your hopes up Huw!

I'm still debating whether I should order these online or just wait until I find them in-stores. I'm getting tired of the mini-figure hunt so maybe I'll try ordering them online but I don't want duplicates. Decisions.

That's it, I've had enough. The price for these minifigs in Australia has gone up to $4.99. TLG is getting really greedy in this part of the world, and I'm not happy. We pay over the top prices for our sets as it is. At least this has made my decision easier about whether or not to collect the set this time - think I'll limit myself to just the elf, samurai and snowboarder and leave it at that.

Check your local Lego store if you live near one. Burlington, MA had them out when I stopped by today even though they are waiting for tomorrow for Ninjago. Given the price increase I only picked up 7 packs which I felt and looked at the dots to try and get different ones.

Remember to use BR120 to save an extra $5 with purchases above $20! (Get like 1 + 1/2 minifig for free :p)

@aarontrck: Wondering where you get the "BR120"? is it the catalog code? Thanks.

It's a BrickMaster code.... The heck what it is.... it saves me $$$ :D

Yup, now in the U.S.A., limit 16 for $2.99. Probably released just a few hours or minutes ago guessing from how they aren't at the top of the "Top 25 Sellers" list yet, like Series 1 and 2 were.

Either That, or people are avoiding them because of the higher prices, sitting in shock staring at the numbers 2.99. :)

@arrontrck: Thanks, by the way, where should I put the code at checking out screen?

On the checkout page there should be a box for 'coupon / catalog code' just enter it there. This basically paid for the shipping for me (with $0.05 left over... woohoo!)

Oops sorry, actually, for my above post, maybe the figs aren't on the Top 25 because the page has not been updated by Shop@Home, as they seem to do it once each day.
Hopefully, I won't have to resort to ordering from S@H if the production of this series has increased and they're made more widely available. I'm much more comfortable with knowing what's in the bag before I buy, especially at this higher price.

In my opinion the new Lego price point of $2.99 is their observance of the market baring prices the borders and Toys r us charging of $3.99-$4.99.

I have a close associate that publishes postcards, he wholesales them for .25 each. His primary retailer sells them for $1. (I know, $1 for a postcard!) That large reseller sells approximately 1000 per year. He recently addressed the issue with the retail trying to convince them that they would double their sales if they used the SRP of .50 cents, while assuring their was an unlimited stock of the postcards. Other smaller retailers sell them for the SRP of .50 cents. The only way to get the $1 seller to reduce their price is to pressure them by raising the price to .50 cents, which totally hoses the smaller retailers. Oh yeah, cost to produce post card... .02 cents.

With this scenario in mind, Lego could hold to its guns and sell its minifigs for $1.99 on the website, which would make the folks charging $2.99 - $4.99 look like they are gouging. I think by raising their own price to $2.99 they are jumping on the profit bandwagon to their own demise. If each minifig cost .10 cents I would be shocked, especially at the slave wages paid in china. I am all for profit, but by keeping prices low Lego would see the same amount of profit buy selling more products.

Ask anybody who stopped collection comics or sports cards or whatever. they all say the same thing, when the price got to high, i had to quit. After all, is a Minifig worth a gallon of milk, or gallon of gasoline?

Hooray, finally we can get them in Canada. Luckily for me, I think I am going to a LEGO Store soon, so I might get a few.:)

Sorry, but does anyone know if the previous crib sheet for the UK works? I hope to use it tomorrow.

I just got a message from the LDC Manchester saying that when they have stock they will let me buy a sealed case. I only want 1 set and a couple of duplicates. rather that ebaying or selling the others on Ebay I would like to ask if anyone on Brickset would like to send me cash in post for the ones they want. I would not want over the RRP, just £2 + the price for postage. (1st class UK £1.61 I think)
Please contact me via my profile if you are interested.

Anyone having shipping problems? I ordered mine on Jan. 1st, Lego sent me an email saying the order was processed, info sent, etc. as normal, I check back today on the tracking results it says the anticipated ship date was Jan. 3rd! Also, it hasn't even gone past the initiated stage! It just says "Shipment information sent to FedEx
Please check back later for shipment status." Is this normal?

Just so everyone knows TRU.com came back down to earth. $2.99 per pack and free shipping online..
Also Notice how shipping for 60 packs is now a small $5.55 now when it was 80 around the holidays...
