Worldwide series 5 availabilityPosted by Huw, 14 Aug 2011 11:07Fitness Instructor8805-10 Collectable Minifigures Series 05 2011 ©2011 LEGO Groupkylejohnson11 has still set up a series 5 availability map using Google Maps. Check it out and put your pin in the map when you've found them near you. 86 comments on this article By jonbuddy in United States, 14 Aug 2011 11:25Lego Discovery Centre in Downtown Disney, Lake Buena Vista, FL still has Series 3 & 4 available. By Talas Antares in United States, 14 Aug 2011 12:43TRU in Appleton, WI does not yet have them. Manager said expected within the next two weeks. By chantastic in United States, 14 Aug 2011 13:25TRU in Hawthorne, CA had nearly one full case as of Saturday night 8/13. No limit. They were selling them for $3.49, though. This TRU is notorious for marking things up even higher than the normal TRU markup. By Matthew in United Kingdom, 14 Aug 2011 14:26Huw, it's a different Kyle ;-)kylejohnson11 on the forums.http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF8&msa=19&msid=215702604894151272636.0004a8cc59702c6372503 By yys4u in United States, 14 Aug 2011 14:44^Hah I wondered so, I remember him mentioning it in a post By Brickalot in United States, 14 Aug 2011 14:48I found series 5 in TRU in atlanta georgia By robb in United States, 14 Aug 2011 14:56The map appears to be messed up. When I just looked, Ft Collins CO appears to be near La Paz, MX and California shows up in Alaska, SK, and Maine. Is the map faulty or are these errors the result of users' misplacing of the markers? By goengar in United States, 14 Aug 2011 15:04Anything in Washington State??? By brankell5566 in Canada, 14 Aug 2011 15:21Has anyone found them in Canada? By LEGOSLUG in New Zealand, 14 Aug 2011 15:23Does anyone know if the series 5 Minifigures will be availible in New Zealand?Please let me know!! By legogeek in United States, 14 Aug 2011 15:56As far as the US locations, the map is totally messed up with pins being in the wrong locations by hundreds or thousands of miles... By Huw in United States, 14 Aug 2011 16:16Thank you @legocoastguard, now corrected :-) By spency13 in United States, 14 Aug 2011 16:30Checked my local TRU in Yuma, AZ and found none. They still have 3 & 4 and said 5 will be there on Thursday. By Zrath in United States, 14 Aug 2011 18:02If you zoom in, the pins in the US are all in the right places.N00BS! :D By Zordboy in Australia, 14 Aug 2011 20:06New Zealand? Darn. But they'd have to either be in Australia or close. By sinfanti in Taiwan, 14 Aug 2011 21:08Zrath, I think some of the non-US pins are in the wrong spots. I strongly doubt there was an open but complete box in the middle of the Brazilian rain forest on Aug. 8. By legofan6206 in United States, 14 Aug 2011 21:17Has anyone seen them in louisville, Kentucky? By legogeek in United States, 14 Aug 2011 23:25@Zrath no, they aren't. And I'm not a NOOB ;-P I live in So Cal, and I know Torrance isn't in Oklahoma, and San Jose isn't in Saskatchewan, Canada. When you click the pins on the left with city names, you get a bad lesson in geography. By Dodge in Canada, 14 Aug 2011 23:54@brankell5566 I've checked in at the Wal-Mart that seems to get them before anyone else in town and nothing so far. It would seem that we get them up here about a month after I read them available in the UK.@legogeek I WISH San Jose was here in Saskatchewan! We'd fianlly have an NHL team! That pin really did get my hopes up though... By legogirl19 in United States, 15 Aug 2011 00:04The Phoenix AZ TRU had them this morning but someone had bought them all before I got there! Guess I'll have to wait 'til next shipment! By starfire2 in United States, 15 Aug 2011 00:27@legogirl19: which Phoenix store? Arrowhead says they aren't getting in until Tuesday at the earliest and the Dunlap store is closing and moving to 3rd St and Greenway. By xymox in United States, 15 Aug 2011 00:48@dodge haha the sharks finally have sound D they won't be leaving from our beloved San Jose anytime soon :Pbut darn i wish i knew about this or i'd have gotten off my tussie and checked out the SJ TRU :( does any body know if the lego store close to the tru has them ? By Zrath in United States, 15 Aug 2011 00:57Ah, okay, I'm seeing the ones in the wrong places now. I looked at a few pins initially and they were correct.How strange. I checked one of my two local TRUs, which is on La Cienega near the 10 freeway in the Westside of L.A. and sucks, and of course they didn't have Series 5 minifigs.When they get them, they will probably put a 3-minifig limit on them, like they always do.I didn't check my other local TRU, which is in Culver City where Sepulveda and Jefferson merge, because that one sucks even more than the La Cienega TRU. BUT I'M NOT BITTER! :D By legogirl19 in United States, 15 Aug 2011 02:38@starfire2: The TRU by Paradise Valley Mall approx. Tatum & Cactus. By Brickfinger in New Zealand, 15 Aug 2011 02:51LEGOSLUG- they've been in New Zealand since last Friday. Plus if you turn on your contact thing people can contact you... By ETAV8R in United States, 15 Aug 2011 05:06How can a TRU mark up the price? Aren't they obligated to the online price? I'm glad I don't have Nazi TRUs near me. By bluemoose in United Kingdom, 15 Aug 2011 05:28Some idiot by the name of 'James' has been maliciously editing the locations of some of the sightings - one of the Milton Keynes sightings had been moved to the Middle East, the other to eastern Germany. The one in South America was supposed to be in High Wycombe in the UK, but this 'James' thought it would be funny to vandalise the map. A load of the others have been moved too; I'd suggest anyone that has added to the map check that their entry hasn't been vandalised. By TheImmortalPlatypus in United Kingdom, 15 Aug 2011 07:34That editor is giving the name "James" a bad reputation! Anyway, I've added a pin to Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire, where I found them in WHSmith. By legofan6206 in United States, 15 Aug 2011 10:05I went to TRU the other day and they didn't have them. THe manager said they would most likely be in today or tuesday. By spency13 in United States, 15 Aug 2011 10:09Whoa, I didn't even realize some stores made a limit!! MY local TRU (which'll get 'em Thursday) doesn't care what the *bleep* I do!! By jackmcar99 in United States, 15 Aug 2011 11:35according to the sales clerk on the phone at the HUNTINGTON BEACH TOYS'R'US, they had some but, im beyond sick of the limit 5 per customer thats just asking us to give them less business because they want there to be enough for everyone, im planning on spending 80.00 on these so just let me get the ones i want. i sorta understand the limit, but come on, when you have 8 of the minifigures boxes stacked behind the counter!!!!???? By Carnigee77 in United States, 15 Aug 2011 12:25There should be markers on the map for places people have checked but found none. They could have the date on them so people know how old they are. By Carnigee77 in United States, 15 Aug 2011 12:26Oh, and has anyone even attempted a dot code sheet or is it just not possible. By xcrossx in United Kingdom, 15 Aug 2011 13:19For anyone in the UK Tesco now has them in stock @ £1.97 and I found a couple that had totally different bumps to the ones I had got from WHSmith! By legogeek in United States, 15 Aug 2011 13:26@jackmcar99Hey, that's the TRU near me. Leave me a few bags will ya! Guess I'll stop by after work. :oD By minifig051 in United States, 15 Aug 2011 13:48I'll be sure to check my local TRU soon. I hope they have them. By madforLEGO in United States, 15 Aug 2011 13:50Got my box off of eBay, have to wait a bit for them, but I can wait.. and no limit 5 per person garbage.I'm through trying to run to three different TRU's looking for a box of these when the stores open, when I know they will be readily available in excess at TRUS for the next 2-3 months and I can get any spares then. By commodorelego in United States, 15 Aug 2011 17:40None in here yet. :( By Galactico in Germany, 16 Aug 2011 09:09I had saw a box in the ABC Market in Varkaus, Finland! By legogeek in United States, 16 Aug 2011 10:57Picked some up at the H.B. CA store, The box was almost cleaned out. Only bought 5, but I think I could have grabbed more - the sales clerk didn't seem to think there was a limit.I've got a $5 TRU coupon so will buy more when a new box hits the shelf. By Cult_Of_Skaro in United States, 16 Aug 2011 13:09I wanna go to a TRU this week. By TimothySRossi in United States, 16 Aug 2011 13:12TRU has them in Concord, NC. I just bought a box. By chantastic in United States, 16 Aug 2011 14:242 boxes at Culver City, CA TRU. $2.99 By brankell5566 in Canada, 16 Aug 2011 18:33@TimothySRossi How much did it cost to buy a full box of 60? By starfire2 in United States, 16 Aug 2011 18:45I found them at 75th ave and W Bell in Phoenix AZ. They had 2 boxes. I unopened and one picked through. I bought 20. They said there was no limit. I was tempted to get a box, so I wasn't standing at their customer service counter looking like and idiot filling up pouches, but decided against it. I want to be fair. I think I got all I wanted but even the feeling method was hard. The clown is the easiest. Just feel for his short legs. I also think the royal guard was easy because you could find his big head piece. BTW they also had Lego Star Wars advent calendars for $39.99 By coolpix in United States, 16 Aug 2011 19:44Went to Coral Springs, FL and Boca Raton, FL TRUs today and they had none. Not even Series 4 anymore. As far as Series 5, one of the employees told me this series will be available in October???? I know they are know to be completely clueless... but this was too far in the future when plenty of TRUs across the country already have them. By starfire2 in United States, 16 Aug 2011 20:34Ok. I opened mine and was 90% accurate. I ended up with 3 zookeepers, 2 cave women, dwarf and gangster as my extras. I mistook the short legs on the dwarf for a clown. As for the others, I think it was because I just grabbed a few more bags at random before I checked out. By TimothySRossi in United States, 16 Aug 2011 20:59I paid $2.99 ea. It was $179 and some change. I was surprised that they let me buy the whole box. They got 3 in today. The box contained 3 full sets and a few extras. I was happy with that. By BooMakuta! in United States, 16 Aug 2011 21:50I'm getting tired of collectable minifigures...now, a Star Wars: The Clone Wars one would definitely offer some novelty. Just imagine all the ideas! My ideas are:-Robonino-Ahsoka (Season 3)-Osi Sobeck-Mother Talzin-Tons of clones: Slick, Thire, Chopper, Stone, Ponds, Argyus, Hotshot, Fives, Echo, Rys and Jek, just to name a few.-Riyo ChuchiI really hope TLG does make a Star Wars: The Clone Wars collectable minifigures theme, because there are thousands of characters to choose from. By ifixedurvw in United States, 16 Aug 2011 22:10Got an email from 5 Below today saying they had them in stock at $2.99 each. Stopped off at the Quakertown, PA store and they had 4 boxes buy the register. Just FYI, I wouldn't buy a full case at 5 Below, they're always opened and never have the assortment of a sealed box. By AZFIREWOLF in United States, 16 Aug 2011 23:56Scored 34 yeaterday at 2.99 plus tax and then scored a full box today. Yesterday they were at the front counter. Today they were out on the floor. Just by feeling the bags you should have no problem finding the soldier and warrior. Just based on the helmets. The other ones are pretty easy as well if you have the time. In my opinion the best thing is to just take a pair of scissors are the best. By native1 in United States, 17 Aug 2011 10:15@AZFIREWOLF where did you happen to find your mini figs? Was it at TRU or another store?Thanks! By xymox in United States, 17 Aug 2011 12:45has any body found them in the fremont/san jose, CA area ? and why aren't they on the lego shop page ? By cflyg in United States, 17 Aug 2011 13:06Found them at the TRU in Layton, Utah. They just had an arrival of several boxes this morning (August 17). $2.99 each. By brickeater100 in United States, 17 Aug 2011 15:17they are avalible at five below also By blomper in United States, 18 Aug 2011 00:54Legoland = Carlsbad, CA, Now has the Series 5, also when you are there, they will trade Minifigures, from their name tag, with you. You can trade any minifigure with them and they have to trade with you. They are not allowed to say no. By Huw in United States, 18 Aug 2011 08:13Please use the member contact system to discuss trades, this isn't an appropriate place to do so. By Cult_Of_Skaro in United States, 18 Aug 2011 09:01^Unfortunately, not all members have allowed themselves to be contacted via brickset. Therefore, until the ACM trading function is activated, many trades will be rendered impossible. Besides, I doubt it will include minifigs and parts. By spency13 in United States, 18 Aug 2011 21:11Purchased all 16 at my local TRU in Yuma, AZ!!!! By Texslot in United States, 19 Aug 2011 01:07I purchased all 16 at my local TRU in Dallas, TX. I love the Gladiator helmet, it has really great details. I actually think the boxer was the easiest to feel because of his gloves on the body. Overall, I think this is one of the better series. By Cult_Of_Skaro in United States, 19 Aug 2011 07:51Could someone help me? I still haven't found any, but in case I do, I want to know how to place the pins! By Morgan19 in United States, 19 Aug 2011 08:45Has anyone found the "code" to call up the main TRU line and have them check for stock in the area? By ggauge in United States, 19 Aug 2011 11:22Bought a full box from TRU in North Charleston, SC today. By commodorelego in United States, 19 Aug 2011 17:39@ Commodorelegolas Bou-ya!! I found them here!!! Ya! By JDLego in Canada, 19 Aug 2011 19:47Has anybody seen them in Canada yet? If so can u let me know where or post it on the rollout map. Or if any americans have seen them near Niagara Falls USA? Thanks By legogirl19 in United States, 19 Aug 2011 20:30Was able to find some at my local TRU, so it is a Happy Birthday for me! By Ghost Target in United States, 20 Aug 2011 00:04Five Below in Saratoga Springs, NY had 4 boxes (2 were unopened) By Cult_Of_Skaro in United States, 20 Aug 2011 07:26The idiot, James (No offense, Gandalf1) has moved more markers. I found one in the ocean, and the ones in TN are all screwy. Unfortunately, the ones in Tennessee must be fixed by the original pinners, because they were un-specific, pinning them merely as "Toys R Us". Could someone please correct these? And is there any way to lock the pins and render them unmovable? By wildcherryp3psi in United States, 20 Aug 2011 13:40Got six at TRU in Mesa last night By wiredforsound in United States, 20 Aug 2011 16:32Pick up five from the west side TRU location in Portland, OR last night for $2.99 each - http://www.flickr.com/photos/wiredforsound23/6059248031/ By minifig051 in United States, 20 Aug 2011 16:59I went to my local TRU today, and they had some! I got all 16 from one box (the only box). By nadnerb112 in United States, 20 Aug 2011 22:16None in Metairie, LA TRU D: By shootvolio in United States, 20 Aug 2011 23:48@Morgan19 the TRU item # is 691144 and can be found on the Toys R Us Series 5 minifig page under the "Additional Info" tab. By diabolix in Netherlands, 21 Aug 2011 06:07Did somebody spot the series 5 in Germany? Strangly there aren't any placemarks in Germany By Cult_Of_Skaro in United States, 21 Aug 2011 07:34I went to TRU last night. Picked up Lizard Man, Lumberjack, and Evil Dwarf, but I traded him for a boxer. My sisters got 2 Cavewomen, one Egyptian Queen, one Zookeeper, one Royal Guard, and one Ice Fisherman. By bb15080 in Netherlands, 22 Aug 2011 11:26I saw a box serie 3, 4, and 5 ad marskramer nistelrode netherlands By brixton in Canada, 22 Aug 2011 12:44@JDLegoI have not seen them in Canada yet. Not to worry though, when they do show up they'll be at pretty much every toy store. I just hope the stores don't mark them up to $3.49 or $3.99 like they did with series 4. Many stores still have multiple boxes of series 4. By ncbarrett in United States, 22 Aug 2011 13:51now available on s@h for US and CAN By JDLego in Canada, 22 Aug 2011 16:43FINALLY! went to my local wal-mart today to pick up a laptop, but they were out of stock, so being all sad walking down the Lego isle I saw 7 Box`s of Series 5, my heart raced, I bought 11 cause i only had $40, they cost $3.68 for 1, cost me $33.60 for all 11, and it was a good pick, i didnt feel i just picked and ran to the cash, got out and opened them all, it was a good find, I got the boxer, the detective, the egyptian queen, the gladitor, the graduate, the grenadier guard, the small viking, and the lumberjack, then got 3 doubles being the boxer, grenadier guard, and detective. I was so happy though, now i got 8 and gotta get 8 more, cant wait to go back!!! :) By spency13 in United States, 22 Aug 2011 19:46Ok, JDlego, where at Walmart have you seen these? I keep hearing about the CM's at Walmarts, but I have never seen any at my local one! BTW, JDlego, it's a Dwarf Warrior, not a small viking. Just FYI By minifignick in United Kingdom, 23 Aug 2011 06:00Anyone in the Plymouth (UK) area check out Whoopee (On the map) The staff are brilliant each bag has been carefully felt and labelled bought a full set there Now off to get some more of my favourites By minifig051 in United States, 23 Aug 2011 12:23@ spency13: I found Series 3 at my local Wal-Mart last December. They were in the Lego aisle. I haven't seen any other ones at that Wal-Mart since. I got Series 4 and 5 at the same TRU. JDLego is in Canada, so we don't know if they'll be in any US Wal-Marts. TRU is the most likely place right now. By modena in Italy, 23 Aug 2011 15:16I need to find out how to use that map! And how to add a location! By suckerpunch83 in Canada, 23 Aug 2011 17:20Found 4 boxes of series 5 at WalMart in Mississauga, Ontario. The unit price was $3.28 a piece. bought a box of 60.Good luck! By JDLego in Canada, 23 Aug 2011 21:41@spency13- I got them at the Wal-mart super centre in Niagara Falls, and some Wal-marts dont carry them, only the super centre`s usually do, but I know right, its weird, usually i would go to the states to get lego, but they didnt have them at the local wal-mart and target I go too, and thanks for letting me know about the Dwarf Warrior, I would have never known seeing how these just came out.@suckerpunch- Congrats on the find. By legopants in Germany, 24 Aug 2011 10:58Series 5 figures now on the shelves in Backnang (SW Germany). Spielwaren Wiedmann, Uhlandstr. 20 to be precise.
