Yet more Collectable Minifigure News

Posted by ,
LEGO Minifigures Series 1 {Random bag}

Both Huw & I are travelling for our respective full-time jobs at the moment, so news is a little slower than it would be normally, so apologies for the delay posting this ...

US based Brickset member 'yellowcastle' has obtained a full set of the collectable minifigs from his TRU & has put together a handy 'reference card' for the US bar codes, which he has kindly allowed us to host here on Brickset ! Thanks mate !

UPDATE - I've uploaded a higher resolution version of the 'cheat sheet', again thanks to 'yellowcastle'

What can we do with these barcodes?

Even though I don't know what we can do with them I want to thank yellowcastle for giving these to us all! =-)

Thanks so much yellowcastle!

@StarWarsManiac - The collectable minifigures feature two barcodes, a regular barcode which is the same for all figures and a special barcode which differentiates between the figures. In order to get a full set of 16, yellowcastle has created a barcode key for lucky U.S. citizens like us! :-)

I went to my local Toys R Us today and was ableto grab a display case.I was able to complete 3 sets with almosta 4th completed set. I didn't feel the bags and didn't use a bar code chart and was able to open all 16 by just sorting the packages just I would do baseball cards using the bar codes. The Crash Test Dummy, Ninja and Diver were the most plentiful (5 each).

By in United States,

great cheat sheet yellow castle. it helped me out today when I bought a 2nd set for a friend and wanted choice extras for my collection (spaceman, zombie, heck, nearly all of them!). thank you!

If you forget to bring the cheat sheet with you and want a whole set, don't forget the obvious, which is to find 16 different bar codes!

Courtesy of my Google G1 and the free barcode scanner app I’ve scanned all of the barcodes that were posted thanks to yellow castle and the wonderful Admins of Brickset.com Below is the numerical result from scanning each of the barcodes listed above and in case your curious no I have not found any of the figs in my neck of the woods this is all form the cheat sheet posted online. Please note I know that the first seven digits are the same for all of the figs however I left them in here in case anyone decides to post this online say perhaps with a pic corresponding fig (on a gallery that will show up in a Google search hint hint) I hope that they will use the full # as opposed to just the last five digits

By in Germany,

Thank you mrdennings! Hopefully this will cut down on the hoarding? Also, I don't want 5 of one and none of another so this is a big help

By in United States,

For the few Windows Mobile users out there: If you use Barcodezilla http://www.barcodezilla.net/Mobile.aspx - it should do all the work for you.
I just finished scanning in that cheat sheet, and uploading anything that wasn't already in the database for BarcodeZilla, so everything should be in there now.

@mrdennings - If you don't have a WM phone, but you can get the raw numbers like you have, just punch them into barcodezilla's web page.

Gravatar
By in United States,

In addation to Barcodezilla it appears that someone has been updating upcdatabase.com with these barcodes as well I'd like to take this time to personally thank that person as I only recently realized that 1. it was searchable from my phone and 2. I could have updated it as well (I added spaceman before I noticed that others were added) any way thanks much and hopefully whoever you are you read these comments.

By in United States,

i have confirmed with my local brand store in TX that they will limit these to 5 bags per person.

Gravatar
By in United States,

ONLY 5!!!! thats rediculous!!! or however you spell it ! But anyways, the barcode cheat sheat is a great help! thanks!

For members in CA, TRU at San Mateo and Redwood City got the minifigures now, as well as the Kingdom Impulse 7955 & 7953, which already out of stock at TRU's web site.

Gravatar
By in United States,

YES!!! Perfect! I'm going to definitely print this!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Wow yellowcastle what can we say...................Thanks!!!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Just wanted to thank Yellowcastle for this list. It helped me get my full set at Toys R Us today!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Just finished calling around the San Francisco Bay Area... nothing. Not in San Mateo or Redwood City; must be sold out already. :(

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

is it me or is the printing on tribal hunter different to the picture on the leaflet? (sorry if this is off topic)

Gravatar
By in United States,

Could someone who has found these at a TRU in the US please post the 6 digit Item Number from their receipt so I can call around to my local TRUs. Thanks!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Meat - the item number for us tru is 673419130479 for the minifigs. Good luck!!

Gravatar
By in United States,

To: meat1980 - There is no 6 digit item number on the receipt, the cashier scan one of the bag and for all. But the twelve digits shown on my receipt: 673419130479, not matching any item of MRDENNINGS provided.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Great thanks so much!

Gravatar
By in United States,

I was given this invoice number from an employee at TRU that he wrote down....306565
Hope that helps!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Yes by use their item #306565 it's easier when calling or inquiring, about the series 1 minifigures.The long sku number they have to go to another screen / system when checking, by using #306565 you'll cut down on waiting especially on the phone..

Gravatar
By in United States,

Are the numbers Mr.Dennings gave us on the packaging or is there just one barcode that you can use? Also, is it easy to feel through the bags for distinct parts such as the magician's top hat?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Thank you for sharing the barcode scans. I only wanted three and really didn't want to deal with hit or miss. A lady in the aisle saw me comparing barcodes and said what a great idea it was and that it was silly that you don't know what you're going to get. I offered her my sheet but she didn't want any figs as she was buying three $20 sets already. Moral of the story: AFOL's are awesome.

By in United States,

Hear, hear!

By in United States,

If you're in Orange County check out the La Mirada toys r us, there might not be much left but there are some there. a guy there bought 2 boxes and there were 2 boxes left which have been picked over by myself.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Can I ask - to the people who have bought full boxes. We know that each box comes with the same quantity of different figs - BUT - Are the figures always packed in the same order?? Is for example the cheerleader always in a specific section of the box, or are they entirely mixed up? I read that some people kept opening the same figures in sequence. With this information it would be possible to really speed up the search for a specific figure if we know which row it is in, etc.

Many thanks

By in United States,

@absolutelylez: Saaaaaay.....You've Got Something Goin' There! But I Doubt That's How it's Done. :(

Gravatar
By in United States,

Very interesting question...

And since all our boxes had the same numbers of figures, it's possible they are packed a certain way...

Mine were indeed bunched together, for the most part...

Looking at the open box from the front, and starting from the right side to the left side, this was the order I found

Cowboy
Spaceman
Skater
Cheerleader
Ninja
Magician
Nurse
Dummy
Robin Hood
Wrestler
Caveman
Zombie
Indian
Diver
Clown
Robot

Let me know if this is what others found! :o)

By in United States,

Got almost all of them today. Missed it by 3, but got 5 dummies, 3 indians, and 2 clowns extra. Advantage me. Thinking that someone should do a Killer Klowns from Outspace Lego movie now.

According to my contact at TRU. The distribution center that feeds Arizona, Nevada, and parts of CA only has 600 boxes left and then they are gone. If the TRU that is close to you is not a high generator for the company good luck. My contact told me that those stores will not be getting any (in most cases)

Thou it was fun going all over town to find the minifigures I am still going to be happy when my 2 packages arrive from ASIA and when my local Lego store has them on sale. However 5 per day per customer does suck. Oh well at least I have 2 complete series. It will be a good time.

Now to wait for series 2 and has anyone heard if there is going to be a series 3? You would think that there is going to be. Series 1 has only been out a few weeks and some stores are already sold out and will not be getting anymore in.

Gravatar
By in United States,

At the tru in Fort Laderdale they are selling them.

Gravatar
By in United States,

This was so helpful. I just picked up a complete set at my local TRU! It took a long time to figure out which bar codes were which [UGH!], but it was worth it! Thanks Brickset and yellowcastle!

Gravatar
By in United States,

UGH!!!!!!!!!!!! i have not found anything in the Dallas area.... has anyone else?

Gravatar
By in United States,

I've checked many TRU in the North Dallas area.....nothing yet.

Gravatar
By in United States,

2010 sets have hit Long Island! Collectible figures can be found at TRUs in Riverhead and across Long Island, but in very limited quantities. I almost picked up SP central, but didn't have enough with me... The new sets look great though.

Gravatar
By in United States,

ROBOBRICK which TRU? I hit the ones in boca, on Broward Blvd and by the pembroke lakes mall and non of em had them in stock.

Gravatar
By in United States,

One of the TRU in San Antonio got a single display box. They put them in a hanging basket near all the other legos. I only missed getting what I wanted by a few packs that someone else got before i got there. You could tell it was random stuff missing. I hit them for about 25 of them (no full set but I wasn't trying for it). I am hoping to catch some if the next store gets any. I really want a zombie horde and 1 zombie is not a horde.

I was surprised they only got a single display box and not a case of them. They did not expect to get any more in anytime soon as the lego rep told them they would be lucky if they got the one box.

Should these be showing up anywhere else other than TRU and Lego brand stores? There are a couple of specialty toy stores that carry lego here that I could hope get them. But anytime I call and ask about stuff they have no idea what I am talking about. It took my 10 minutes to convince a guy that I was not looking for a set like city/kingdom/atlantis or otherwise and then he was all uppity about it when he found them.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@WolfnWendy: erm, Is It Possible That you Should Feel/Compare Barcodes to Get your Horde? >_>

Gravatar
By in United States,

Does anyone know if the packages for the minifigs say only made in China or does it have a bunch of diferent countries listed as country of manufacture?

Gravatar
By in Curaçao,

They are 'Made in China'. Nowhere else.

Gravatar
By in United States,

It is not an issue of cannot find which one is the zombie (thanks Yellowcastle). It is the matter that there was only 1 little box in all of my area. Not even a case.

Gravatar
By in United States,

There were like a million boxes at my local TRU! We dug through the boxes for at least a half an hour, trying to get a whole set plus a few extras [Zombies!]...

Gravatar
By in United States,

For those who ordered a vast amount from Lego S&H....did you receive a box and/or just individual bags?

Gravatar
By in United States,

just confirmed......both LEGO brand stores in the North Dallas area have them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Gravatar
By in United States,

There are two TRUs in my area. Both got a box in yesterday. One had the box literally hidden under the front desk. We had to ask for them to let us buy some and the limit was five each. My wife and I each got 5, early in the morning and we came back later when the shift had changed to buy 5 more each for a total of 20. It looked like the box was still almost full, probably because no one knew it was even there.

We called the other TRU about 30 minutes away and they said the limit was 2 per person. The box was at the front counter but unattended. By avoiding anyone with a supervisor name tag we managed to get 20 from there as well bringing our total to 40. I get the feeling, however, that the this box had been ransacked by bar code experts for Cheerleaders and Clowns.

With help from the barcode image on this site (thanks) We managed to get a least one of each but not a very balanced selection. I have five of some and only one some others. Still, some of you lucky people got a case but I bet I had more fun tracking them down. ;)

PS: I have a case coming in June!
PPS: The local Lego store said that they will have a limit of 5 per person (per day) as well.

Gravatar
By in United States,

My TRU still has no Collectable Minifigures, I want to get them there because the workers are sharp as marbels; I can probably walk out with a sealed box. The Lego store near me Limits 5/person/day, at that rate it will take me 7 years to get all 16... my math could be wrong.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Thanks yellowcastle for the list. it helped me get 6 of the CMs today at the modesto TRU!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Thank you Yellowcastle!!!! I went to my local TRU a few days ago and they only had five left so I bought what they had, I went back today and they had just opened two new boxes. I was able to complete one set and then bought another set. The Victorville TRU had not limit on what you could buy. =)
My girlfriend was able to find them all with the barcodes within 20 minutes.
Shes the best!!!

GO LEGO MINIFIGURES!!!!!!!!
Now just have to wait for series 2!

Gravatar
By in United States,

When does Series 2 come out, or when will it leak out @ TRU?

Gravatar
By in Germany,

Found most figures at the Palisades Mall Lego Store today in NY. My husband mixed up one of the barcodes so we wound up with 2 nurses. And there were no cheerleaders so the hunt continues. They were located up front by the registers in the bins not in their own box. And they did not limit how many we got.

Ironically the 2 TRU stores in this area still haven't gotten them and don't even show them coming as part of their inventory

Gravatar
By in United States,

Hi Yellowcastle, I just recently ran into this forum and read that there is a cheat sheet you posted. I didnt find the link. Could you kindly post it again?

Thanks!

Gravatar
By in Canada,

I just noticed something! The US Barcodes are the same as the Canadian ones!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Could anyone who has the barcode list post on this forum so I could print it out? Thanks!!!

By in United States,

The Modesto TRU is Sold out Now..................Still Hope I Can get a full set!! :)
