Free collectable minifigure with the Beano

Posted by ,

As we reported a couple of weeks ago, the makers of the 'Beano' comic in the UK were planning to include a free minifig with a future issue of the comic... well, today, that future has arrived :-)

This week's 'Beano' includes a sealed minifigure pack, so it's not easy to get a specific figure. It also includes a collectable minifigure-based sticker sheet & poster.

Based on previous experience with Lego being included as promotional gifts with comic books in the UK, these are likely to fly off the shelves very quickly, so, if you want one, don't hang around!

Thanks to 'William' and 'Rob' for sending in the news.

That is cool and a little bit weird at the same time... Beano and lego collectable minifigs? I guess It's ok.

Is a Beano more or less expensive than buying a Minifigure on its own?

Beano is £2.25, minifig is £1.99 (if you can still find any!)

Look at it as 26p for the stickers and the poster

In the middle of the comic is a pullout that has Lego facts, puzzles and general promotional material about the figures. It also says you get 5 free minifigs if you subscribe to the Beano. In my day the Beano only used to cost 28p to buy!

Beano's a kind of mix between a kid's comic and a kid's magazine, plus at the end of the year they put out a thick book with a collection of comics & other stuff in it -- makes a good holiday present.

so its just a random figure right? not a uk exclusive?

I find it very funny that every time a UK exclusive is offered, people from the US complain. And then when a US exclusive is offered, the UK complains. It seems that Lego "always" releases "everything" to the wrong country!

I've a question. How is Beano? is it just for the kids or can older readers enjoy it as well?

Picked up a Beano at lunchtime. GBP2.25 for a Series 1 Collectible Minifig (mine was a diver which I really like), Series 1 Collectible Minifig themed sticker set and an A2 size poster of the Series 1 Collectible Minifigs. A bargain!

It's quite hard to look at the barcode to find out which fig you are getting but I still managed it - I sorted through them until I found the skater! The lego mini mag isn't that good but the poster is cool.

The poster that comes with it is quite large and excellent! I must admit, I quite enjoyed the stickers too :)
