Collectable Minifigs, Series 2, Now Landing in the USA

Posted by ,
Pharaoh

Tony "SavaTheAggie" Sava has reported finding & buying (and has provided photographic proof) the Series 2 Collectable Minifigs at the Toys-R-Us in Webster, Texas. We think this is the first time the series 2 figs have been confirmed as available in the US of A, so let the hunt begin ! Good luck tracking them down & let us know how you get on.

Also, check out the other photos in Tony's flickrstream: he has posted the US/Canadian barcodes !

While the figs are slowly percolating out across mainland Europe, we in the UK are still waiting for general availability :-(

Update: grogall has once again created a combined single-page crib-sheet showing the US and EU barcodes. Thanks Guido! (--Huw)

Awesome!!! Can't wait! My favs are the Surfer, Mime, and Spartan.

By in Canada,

my local wal-mart said that they should have them by the end of the week.

By in United States,

Here we go again. Not that excited about the hunt just the figs. Lets hope we don't have to run over each other or steal from small children like we did with series one. ;)

By in United States,

Any word on a wider release to Wal-Marts or Targets? I don't want to have to drive to Chicago just to find some.

Gravatar
By in United States,

YESSSSS!!!

By in Canada,

Well my sister works at a TRU in Canada... pretty sure she has a shift tomorrow. So I'll just print off the barcodes and let her check then.

Thanks for the info, though I'm not sure I'll go to great lengths to find them.

By in United States,

I already saw his post over on Eurobricks yesterday with the barcode sheet, so today, I went to my local TRU as soon as it opened. Sadly, they don't have these yet. In my area, Tuesdays are the typical days for shipments, so I won't check in again until next Tuesday...except next Tuesday school is in session again so I no longer have time. I really wish they came out this week.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Thanks so much, SavaTheAggie! This is exciting news. Even better, the best figure in the bunch (The Spartan) has the easiest barcode to recognize by eye. :o)

Gravatar
By in United States,

anybody find them in the northern part of the U.S.?

Gravatar
By in Canada,

will look for those marvelous Figs at my Local TRU this weekend!

Gravatar
By in United States,

I don't know about anybody else but I missed out on series1 because of the EBay sellers. Our local TRU's said they sold out in 20 minutes. Our local Lego store which is a 45 minute drive sold out in 2 hours and were only selling 5 per person per day. So I'm not holding my breath for series 2. I think Lego was dumb for how they released them. They should have sold them as a whole set in a display box for $40. I would have paid for that rather than running to TRU twice a week.

Gravatar
By in United States,

oh yeah

Gravatar
By in United States,

Called TRU this morning and a friend of mine said the series 1 item number has been removed. Hopefully they start getting these this week. And Wal-Mart will be getting these too? I was under the impression that only the LEGO store and TRU were getting them...

Gravatar
By in United States,

I wonder when they will be on lego.com

Gravatar
By in United States,

Found them at Toys r us in Fairview Heights il. Got them all but the Vampire, that one was already sold out, and I got to the store early. So they went fast!

Gravatar
By in United States,

For those who have found series 1 or 2 at TRU, where in the store are they displayed? The only place I found series 1 was at Urban Outfitters long after they were sold out everywhere else. Still missing 3 of em too.

Gravatar
By in United States,

YES! Then my chances of the figs being on my local Toys R Us this friday (Like they said they would) Increase by....some percent! :P

Gravatar
By in Canada,

Hopefully Nic can get the android app Minifig Collector updated asap.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@Shoobathelemur - they were on a center aisle rack top shelf right next to the main row of Lego, our store normally puts the small sets there like the mini creators and racers.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Yay! They're here! I can't wait until I get them!!!!! Yay!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Does anyone know if the minifigures landed in Maryland yet?

Gravatar
By in United States,

They arrived at the Allen, Texas TRU this past monday. They only received 2 boxes and were gone within a day or two. However, the friendly employee told me that they are trying to limit the number purchased per customer to 5 or 6. Hopefully LEGO learned their lesson with series 1 and is doing a bigger run with series 2.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Yeah thats great i live in texas and theres a toysrus near me YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!

Gravatar
By in United States,

None in the north Chicagoland Toys R Us's yet.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Anybody in Minnisota?

Gravatar
By in United States,

why can't I even find series 1 in my walmart what area of the store are they in

Gravatar
By in Canada,

@levi: the same reason you can't find any alpha team sets :P they are gone
How do you print the barcode sheet?

Gravatar
By in United States,

I called a couple of TRU's in MN and they didn't have any yet and they didn't sound too optimistic about having them in this week's shipment. I'd put money on them having them next week...if I were a betting man...which I'm not.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@ Griff - Ha, followed up behind you in Fairview Heights, IL and bought the last 29. Got them all but the vampire as well. Interstingly enough the cashier told me that the store would be placing a limit on the next batch that they have. She didn't know what it would be, but my guess is 5 per customer. Where do you live anyway? I'm in Belleville. Also, they we $1.99 each which was $1 less each than they were at Borders for Series I.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Thanks for the barcodes. I hope the majority of them go to little kids, NOT EBAY SELLERS. Its dumb how Lego only lets you have 5 minifigs :(. Hopefully they might release a lot of them so you could have maybe ten.

Gravatar
By in {Unknown country},

Just updated the Minifig Collector app for Android phones with the USA barcodes. The app should now work with both Series 1 and Series 2, USA and EUR minifigs!

By in United States,

can't find them in Washington, somebody tell me if they are here :P
I've heard borders (book store?) was selling them, do they get them the same time toys r us does or no??

Gravatar
By in United States,

@ Wagnerml - I live in the Belleville area. You would think if they are going to place a limit on them it would be 16 so you could at least get a whole set without dragging in 3 and a half of your friends in the store with you, or walking in and out the door 4 times with a different shirt and hat. I was surprised at the $1.99 for two reasons; one, they mark up everything Lego; two, I got series one at the same store near the end of the series run and paid $2.49 for them.

Also in the area, Target Greenmount has/had lots of star wars sets on sale and wal mart on 50 had 4 or 5 different (not mini figures) sets on their clearance row.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Going to Lego store MOA Tomorow hopefully. also will check borders ect.

By in United Kingdom,

It's funny how series 1 went out of stock SO quickly in USA. Last Friday I found a shop with 3 full boxes so I finished of my collection. I hope WHSmith starts off with series 2 not behind the counter because thats how I got the base of my collection.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'm going to the LEGO Shop, they'll probably have some there.

Gravatar
By in United States,

So happy I live in the US and I have mine in route from HK. This way I don't need to worry about the craziness of the minifigure chase as much

Gravatar
By in Norway,

Those old things?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Just pick up some in WHSmith in Crewe. Sounds as though they will be in most WHSmith stores this weekend.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I haven't seen any in my local stores yet.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

has anyone seen these in canada?

Gravatar
By in Canada,

@R4-G9 — None on the east coast as far as I can tell; at least, not in NB or NS.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Did anyone see them in PA?

Gravatar
By in United States,

None in Central Kentucky TRU.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Oh BTW. I am hearing people mention wal-mart and target, etc. To my knowledge, Wal-Mart did not stock ser1, nor did Target.

Not that Wal-mart would not sell them, but if Wal-Mart Stocks say a series 3 or 4. Production would need to be 10 times what ser 1 was. Wally-World would not mess around with some 2 boxes per month crap.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@Voypro - For the U.S., Series 1 did not appear in Walmart or Target. They were, however, carried by Walmart in Canada and Target in Australia, if i recall correctly. But, seeing as how neither of them carried Series 1 in the U.S. and that Series 1 and 2 were produced back to back by Lego, I would imagine that we won't see Series 2 in our Targets or Walmart either. I'll still keep checking, though, and will hold out hope for Series 3. :o)

@all - No Series 2 yet in D.C./Maryland/Virginia...

Gravatar
By in United States,

Success! Went to the Cedar Park, TX toysrus store today and my kids and I searched with the barcodes and got all of the ones that they wanted. I let them keep two and the rest are going in the closet for Christmas :) Too bad I had to have them with me so it won't be a surprise, but you have to get these things the first day they come out. We got 3 Spartans, 2 Vampires, 2 police officers, a witch, a pharoah, an explorer, two Karate dudes and two skiers. The boys picked out the skiers and the police officer/karate dude to keep right now.

Here is how I found these minifigures. Yesterday, I called the Toysrus store in Webster, TX where savaaggie had purchased his, and they gave me an Item Number. I then called 1-800-TOYSRUS early this morning and asked for a "land-based specialist" so that I could find out the inventory in my local toysrus stores because I know this is truck day at that store. They checked using the Item Number (587572) and told me that the Cedar Park store had them. The other two stores in Austin have not yet received them, so this is a good way in the coming weeks to check on those two stores. It is great to know that the store has them before heading out and being disappointed.

Hope this helps!

@yellowcastle

RE:ser 1 and 2 production. That is my thinking too. Which is why I see series 2 as likely being as scarce as ser1 was. Since TLG is a solid profit oriented company, I am guessing they will attempt to meet demand, far better that happened on ser 1 (and likely ser2). With that in mind, could production of Ser 3 be any less than 2-3 times as much, as ser 1 & 2?

I am going to be at open of my local TRU each day this week til ser 2 hits. I suggest everyone consider same thing.

@liisadd76 - Ha Ha Ha Ha! Just call TRU, gal said, "Wow that is a very popular item, I have had 3 calls on it in the past 15 minutes". thanks for the heads up!

By in United States,

tru in virginia doesnt have them yet, but they said they had chrome stormtroopers :/,

Gravatar
By in Canada,

tru's in canada will not be getting these in until sept. 1st t the earlyest, and they have been released in the us.
tru in canada's code for them is 409340, if they re released at toysrus.ca they will be put online on sept. 1st
hope this helps

Gravatar
By in United States,

Just tried out Liisadd76's method of calling 1-800-TOYSRUS and no TRU within 100 miles of Palos Hills IL has them in stock! Maybe next week, since they hit Fairview Heights IL yesterday and that is about 284 miles from me! Have to check back though! Would've been nice to find them today, could've made an awesome b-day present to myself!! ;)

Gravatar
By in United States,

@legogirl19: I think the key for me was knowing what day the store gets their trucks - the stores were kind enough to give me that information when I called them. I only called this morning because I knew this store was getting a truck on this very day. Otherwise, I know they would be sold out the next day.

Also, when I was there, the cashier tried to tell me that they were putting a limit on the purchases of 5, but we already had about 16 of them in our hand-cart, so I spoke with the manager and he made an exception. Looks like at least the Cedar Park store will be limiting to 5 from now on.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Nothing at TRU in Allen TX, sold out. Nothing at Target / Walmart (never saw series 1 at either place). LEGO store in Frisco TX doesn't have them yet either.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

the lego store in calgary will be getting these somtime in early sept.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@legominifig27 - Nothing in southeastern PA yet. I know the delivery days are not necessarily the same for the 2-3 TRU stores in my area, but the one closest did not receive any in this week's shipment. Also, the local Borders bookstores did not have any in stock. I live within a half hour drive of 2 TRU stores, 4 Borders bookstores, and 3 malls, including King of Prussia where the Lego Store is, but none of these locations have Series 2 yet nor do they have any remaining Series 1 figures. This weekend, I will have the opportunity to check one additional TRU in PA a bit farther out of my region, but I'm not expecting any positive news.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I went to a few Toys R Us stores in the Chicagoland area and I had the same results as legogirl19 but I was able to pick up a City Advent Calendar!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Clearwater, FL TRU got a box and already sold all of them. Other local TRU haven't received any yet. I should try to trade my xtra series 1s for them lol.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@liisadd76 - thanks so much for the info!

Gravatar
By in United States,

West of Chicago, I visited to TRUs this morning and neither of them had them, so i'm just gonna have to check next week. I'm getting really anxious for these little devils.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@yellowcastle: You are very welcome! :)

Gravatar
By in United States,

Excited about series 2....however, I decided to pre-order a box online to avoid the time and/or effort to track down the minifigures. I was able to get 20 of the series 1 minifigures (5 at a time) before I decided just to purchase a box on eBay. (I look at it this way.....my time and gas costs me money...so make it simply and pay a bit more without the hassle.) Hopefully series 2 is more plentiful than series 1....since I like series 2 better than series 1. Oh well, good luck on the treasure hunt.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Boreders said they would have them next week. i'm going to be on vacation, so does anyone know of any in upper Michigan?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Thanks very much for the 1-800 tip. I called and the (exceptionally nice) lady said they didn't have any at the moment, but I know the two TRUs near me have shipments tomorrow so I'm going to try again then– sooooo much easier than calling individual stores where half the time they don't even know what you're talking about.

She was pretty funny, though... The first thing she said when I told her the number was something along the lines of "Shucks, these things are popular aren't they!" because a bunch of folks had been calling... ;)

Gravatar
By in Canada,

Went to my local Wal-Mart. They weren't there.

Gravatar
By in United States,

have they been found in CA?????? i really need to know

Gravatar
By in United States,

My MN friends. I found a 1/2 box at TRU in Maplewood at the front service counter. I didn't ask if they had more in the back. I bought the ringmaster, skier, and cop for my kids. The rest are still there.

Gravatar
By in United States,

None at my local TRU in Phoenix AZ. City advent calendar now available at TRU's website.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Manager at W KY TRU told me that the store is getting these as a special shipment via Fed Ex, not a regular truck. I was there yesterday when he received a normal truck containing new Lego sets and advent calendars, but no figs. This morning they had figs at 10:43, I bought a set. Left for home, called friends so they could get some as well. They sold out by noon before they could get there.

Gravatar
By in United States,

For those wondering about availability of Wave 1 vs. Wave 2...I was told by someone at my local LEGO store that pre-orders for waves 1 and 2 were made at the same time, so the availability will be the same. Now that they know they have a hit, they'll plan to have a larger stock available for waves 3 and 4.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Going to my Local Toys R Us tomorrow to check if they have them tomorrow like they said they would. To those wondering, it's in southern california.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@Oboe thank you so much.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'm gonna call my local tru's (I'm lucky enough to have 5 within a reasonable distance) tomorrow to see if they have any because they get a shipment tomorrow. for series 1 i had to wait a while until one had 1 1/2 boxes left because some guy hit the other 4 and they were sold out in one day. Hopefully this will be different.

@Tervlon actually, some small children stole from me. When i got to the TRU there were packs scattered around the sets and they were throwing them into their parents baskets, so i asked at the desk and they brought out a fresh box. The kids saw and they grabbed them. I ended up only getting 18 packs out of the box but later completed 1 full set after finding them for $2.50 at a closer TRU a couple weeks later. I am very happy and hope to complete another set with the next wave.

@legogirl19 I hope you find them and happy birthday!

If anyone finds them in Michigan can you please tell what city or county or anything. Thanks!
Can someone also tell me if target or walmart had them, because mine didn't know what they were. Thanks!

Gravatar
By in Canada,

Went out (not looking for Lego) and found some Series 1 still circulating. Urban Behaviour of all places has Series 1 mini-figures for $6 while ToysToysToys has them for $10/minifigure. Ridiculous markups. I hope Wal-Mart and Toys R Us doesn't jack the prices up for Series 2.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

The Android app Minifig Collector has now been updated with the new barcodes.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Don't count on wal-mart getting any of the series 2 minifigs. They were produced at the same level as series 1 and limited to just the Lego stores, borders and toys r us here in the USA. They will be producing larger quantities of series 3 and of course no cheat codes to pick on those.

Gravatar
By in United States,

just got back from tru in northern va, wanted to maybe buy a stormtrooper but they didnt have any, also they didnt have any series 2 legoland figures,

Gravatar
By in United States,

None in Scottsdale AZ tonight.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Does anybody know what's the item number at toys r us? I went to 2 nearby me and they search "lego minifigures" on the TRU website and nothing comes up. They have no clue what I'm talking about. What/How do you guys ask them to search?

Gravatar
By in Germany,

Here in Germany they can now be found almost everywhere.
- Galleria Kaufhof
- Drogerie Müller
- Obletter
- Schlecker
- Idee & Spiel

I'm not sure about Toy's R Us but I'll check tomorrow. Besides that, Lucky hunting!
Oh, but not the Lego brand stores they are only aloud to release them September 1st.

By in United Kingdom,

Just picked up 3 Pharohs, 3 Witches, 3 Vampires, 3 Mimes, and 3 Spartans at my local WHSmith! Heads up people, they're in the UK!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Yes i can also confirm these are in WHS in the UK!!

Gravatar
By in United States,

I called local borders, in SE MI, and when i asked about them she punched them into her computer, and said it showed she had some, she went and checked, then came back and said they will have 120 in a couple weeks.
Makes me think they are there, but they wont sell them til sept 1st.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@ncbarrett Thanks for the tip, and it sounds to me like you're right! I may try borders to see if the in-store employees know that they cant sell them

Does anyone know if you can preorder them at borders?

And I heard that these are all high quality plastic. Can anyone verify that?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Dumb question... Where should one look for these in their local Borders store? Are they in the LEGO section of the kids area? Or by the registers? Thanks!!

Gravatar
By in United States,

^ The couple Borders I'd found Series 1 at always had them up front by the registers.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Thanks for the heads up avacadoturban(!) - just popped into my local WHSmith and picked 6 up - Karate dude, Vampire, Mexican, Mime, Pharoah and Spartan. They had 3 boxes in - 2 behind the counter, 1 in the toy section, which was nearly empty already. £1.99 each.

Gravatar
By in United States,

buddy of mine was able to get nearly two full boxes at TRU in Irving TX. Some kid got there 1st and took 3 out of each box. I am hoping to score in Dallas today.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I called 1-800-TOYSRUS asking about the Bloomington, MN store using the part number from @liisadd76 (thanks, btw). The lady said they were to get a big shipment this past Wednesday. She seemed surprised that the estimated date was in the past. I was in there yesterday and didn't see them (didn't bother asking). Earlier in the week when I called the store they said their truck comes in on Friday, but had no idea what would be on the truck. Not sure what to make of it -- anyone see any there yet?

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'm in Northern VA and I called a few of my local TRU about the Series 2 figs. One of the employees was exceptionally knowledgeable and helpful. He mentioned that these shipments usually come into the port of Long Beach, CA and that the shipments are distributed from the Western to the Eastern US. He mentioned that you can almost track the wave of shipments across the US this way. If he is correct, it would jive that TX and other Western/Midwestern states are starting to see them and that us in the East haven't quite gotten them. I'm sure they'll start popping up here in the next week or so.

I'm still dreading the search. Ugh.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@UKver2.0 I have found TRU either get trucks on Thursday, or Wed & Friday.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Does anyone know when these will be on Lego.com? Lego Store Mall of America says they wont have them untill after there online.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Further confirmation that these are available in WH Smith in the UK! I just got mine from WH Smith in Lakeside shopping centre, Thurrock. They were behind the till, but the nice lady let me stand to one side with the box to choose my own with the barcodes. Unfortunately, I made 1 error, so I've got 2 Adventurers and no Disco Stu! :-( Guess I'll be going back when I get the chance!

Gravatar
By in United States,

@Carnigee77 When I called S&H they said before the end of the year, not sure if they could be more vague. lol
Also anyone in Michigan, 1-800-TRU lady said there weren't any stores in the state with them in stock.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Today i called a bunch of stores in Austin,TX TRU is going to have them in september so there not here yet *sigh*

Gravatar
By in United States,

Burnsville, MN TRU has them. I tried to get one of each and a few extra Spartans, but in my immense hurry (and no printed bar code sheet) I somehow ended up with 27 figures! Now I'm back at work and I have to sit here the rest of the day wondering what's waiting for me in the car (...did I miss any? ...which ones did I double up on?).

There were two, possibly full, boxes at store opening. No one else came by or seemed to be looking for them.

By in United States,

RE: Android app - I have seen a lot of folks talking about the minifig app. Many of who do not have the android phone and wish they did. I have the HTC Evo android phone, and the mini fig app. It is a great idea, but far from magical

The app is perfect, its application w/ the phone is not. You need perfect lighting condition and any reflection on the barcode while you attempt to scan will throw it off. I got a box of series 1 from ebay and sitting on my couch in pretty good lighting it took me about a minute to finally read one.

For the past decade my local TRU store has chronically been run by toy Nazis that have doled out any popular toys like the fate of the world dangled in the balance. I am sure that I would be throw out of the store by a squad of GeoffreyTroopers if i attempt to scan each package of minifigs. My best bet over the years it to buy whatever I needed and leave as fast as I can before my cart items become labelled the next hot thing to be secured at the front counter from now on.

So, Android App...cool but not practical for scanning. But its visual listing of Barcodes is PERFECT for assisting you in selecting. Personally, I welcome series 3 lack of Barcodes.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

The Wal-Mart where I found Series 1 earlier in the year doesn't have any Series 2 mini-figures yet. I checked TRU and asked an employee. He said call TRU weekly to see when they're in stock. He said he doesn't expect any of the Series 2 mini-figures to be in stock until September.

Gravatar
By in United States,

BTW the iphone has a barcode reader app. that works for reading the barcodes. We used it when series one came out.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

one of my local walmarts said that they will most likely get them.

Looks like the Bloomington, MN TRU already sold out...oh well, guess there's always next shipment...

Is it an uneven distribution like Series 1?

By in United States,

TRU in Dallas, TX limited me to 4!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! only 4!!!!!!!!!!!!! argh!!!!

Gravatar
By in United States,

It looks like the spartan, dj and skier are 3 to a box. The spartan will most surely be the hottest figure of this series and just like the Zombie from series 1, will be very hard to find unless you can find some full boxes.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I kind of hope they limit the number you can buy at my stores in Ca. last time a guy bought 2 series 1 boxes out of the 4 available and it was the second store he hit up.

By in N/A,

I just found a box at TRU in Corpus Christi, Tx. The Kids were able to put together 3 sets with them. I would say they are pretty even or we just got lucky.

By in United States,

@Bluecone65 - Wow, I went to a few of the Dallas TRUs, and couldn't find them yesterday. Talked to one of the employees and they assured me they had already sold out at one of them! The other , they all seemed clueless. Which TRU did you get limited at? I would be happy to get just four at this point! Did you get them today? Debating that drive, as I am in Fort Worth. The TRU over here did not have them either, and I had a friend go to Arlington and ask the same questions - no luck.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@skaforhier - The TRU in Lewisville, TX has them. They had two half-full boxes at customer service checkout. I asked if there was a limit....the employee said 5 to 10. He radioed his supervisor and the supervisor said, "no limit." Nonetheless, I only bought 10 packs since I have a box on pre-order.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I just got back to school, and away from my TRU (Metairie) but my awesome mom went and checked for me: they had 34 bags, so she scooped them all up: I got 15/16 (missing the surfer) plus an extra weightlifter and blackbelt: my little sisters divvied up the pop stars and lifeguards, my brother took a mariachi and a blackbelt... saving other extras for a buddy. Success! but I still gotta get that surfer...

YESSSSSS! FINALY!!!!! WO-HOO!

By in United States,

Still none in Phoenix AZ. I have tried ALL the TRU's within a 25 mile radius and all the Borders, and my local Barnes and Noble and no luck ... I still wish Ebayers wouldn't charge so much, but I guess that's free enterprise right?

By in United States,

Ahh great starfire2, it is you that has been asking around here in my hood. It is a race then ; )

Gravatar
By in United States,

no luck in SE MI. They thought i was talking about series 1 at borders and TRU. Try again next week, I don't like the hunting! Barnes and Nobles Has them?

@Voypro, RE: Android App. - That sucks that your phone isnt working good with the barcode scanner.

I personally have the HTC Desire and taking pictures of barcodes is sooooo easy and fast, I keep showing off how I can scan barcodes of books, ect and price check it on Amazon. Ya, Im a geek, but I wouldent be here if I wasent.

But like you said, at the very least having all the info and a nice fancy checklist in the phone is SWEET.

By in United States,

I bought the remaining one 20 total got 10 of the 16 other where duplicates

Gravatar
By in United States,

@ skaforheir.... i found them at the Dallas TRU next to northpark mall.
Looking like we will have to wait for the next shipments at this point, TRUs in this area have been cleaned out according to this chat.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I also called the toys r us 800# that saved me alot of time finding out if they where in stock or not

Gravatar
By in United States,

@schvatts : Hopefully it is a friendly race!

By in United States,

@schvatts and @starfire2. Count me in the race as well. Maybe we should team up and split the winnings? Divide and Conquer!!

By in United States,

toysrus in mesa has nothing

By in United States,

@schvatts and @starfire2 and @erol312006 So far there are 4 of us.
Who else in Phoenix is looking for this elusive treasure?

Gravatar
By in United States,

At this rate with everyone hunting at TRU's, when they actually do hit the Lego Store in September, the "hunting" may have died down a little! Wishful thinking? It worked for me the first ti,me around--maybe I'll have the same luck this time!

BTW-- No luck here in Illinois---YET! I'm keeping my eyes peeled though!

Congrats to all of you lucky ducks that have found your "treasures"!!

I just completed my set the 'cheaty' way: bricklink! the awesome Nannan Zhang hooked me up with the surfer fig.

Gravatar
By in United States,

The problem I have with our local Lego store is it is 20 miles from me (give or take a few miles) and so, I don't have the time to keep running over there all the time. Plus last time they limited it to 5 per person per day. Just like Lego.com did. My local TRU has specific delivery days and is only 1 mile from me, so I can get there quickly. They also said they could hold 10-20 for me if I wanted to call first. As for the sharing of the booty. I wouldn't mind too much I only want a few characters ( karate kid, pharaoh, mime, mexican and disco stu). I am at the verge of buying them on Ebay though if we miss out on them again.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Sorry CA, just called a few stores and no one in orange county at least has them in yet.

Gravatar
By in United States,

i just hope i see them. i will be going on the 28th, and i HAVE to get them.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@native1 I'm also looking for these in the Mesa are, the TRU store near me isn't very informative other than they have a truck delivery on Tuesday, not sure if the little dudes will be on there though.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@wildcherryp3psi: see my earlier post - all you need to do to find out if there will be minifigs at the store when you get there on Tues is to call 1-800-TOYSRUS before they open, ask for a land-based specialist to check the store inventory using the item number for the figs: 587572. Then, hopefully it won't be a wasted trip!

Gravatar
By in Canada,

Tried at my local walmarts today. They didn't have anything but were restocking so I'll be going back tomorrow

Gravatar
By in United States,

Yeah thanks Lisadd76 I used this tip and it helped me get my hands on some thanks for sharing.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Wow, there seem to be a lot of us on this board in the DFW area... Anyway, I ended up getting frustrated and buying a box from ebay... I am not really into selling the ones I don't want on ebay, so I would entertain straight trades Spartans or mariachis for any of the other figures from the box (Although I will be keeping one of each for my collection). I will still be looking for some more spartans, and gladly will pick up other types if I find them for other people in the area.

Gravatar
By in United States,

hi again... we should combine forces ... if i see them i will post it here. I usually go here a few times a week, looking for other stuff not just lego

Gravatar
By in United States,

Checked out couple TRUs in San Francisco Bay Area, CA and hunted nothing. But the stuff of one TRU told me they had ran out 2 weeks ago. I wonder he misunderstood to series 1. Btw I have a crazy idea; Can Admin upload a map across the country and allow us to update the city/location which had series 2 stocked?

Gravatar
By in Canada,

if you are in ontario look in your local wal-marts because on ebay someone is selling them!

Gravatar
By in Canada,

Good news, everyone! Series 2 is hitting Walmart in Canada. I bought 30X this morning, from their stock of 720. $2.86 each. I was absolutely stunned to see them sitting there on the shelf, as there had been no other reports here of them hitting Canada!

Gravatar
By in United States,

orangelobster - thank you for the bar code photo.
liisadd76 - thank you for the item number.

I hope I can find some in the east coast soon.......

Gravatar
By in United States,

does anybody know if there in MN or WI.the TRU in Lacrosse,WI has the worst information about series 2.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@legoGUY100, it looks like the TRU's that had them in the twin cities are all sold out (but we did get them). You could always try Rochester, MN if you're looking for a road trip but I'm not sure if they get enough total sales to get minis right away. For series 1, they didn't get any until it was 2-3 weeks after the larger stores got theirs. The bigger problem is that stores seem to sell out of these the same day they show up.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Wal-mart in Canada.....wow.... wonder if Wal-mart USA will get them too this time.

Gravatar
By in United States,

hey peeps, does anyone know if series 2 haz landed in MD yet?

Gravatar
By in United States,

@liisadd76 thanks for the help :-)

Gravatar
By in United States,

Looks like you will be able to complete 3 sets of the minifigs per box. I still have not spotted any at wal-mart or target here in the dallas area. Also, seems like the toys r us stores are a hit and miss with some even limiting the number of figures you can buy. Check your local borders too even though their 2.99 price point is high.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Borders sells them for $3 each? Wow.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Went to Kansas City last night and found them at the big ToysRUs outside the Great Mall of the Great Plains. They only had one box at the registers but they didn't mind when we whipped out the Barcodes and picked through them. We were able to get Mr. Maraca, the Pop Singer, the Ring Master, the Surfer, and by accident the Witch (thought I picked up Pharroh but must have switched them in my hand). The bar codes are a bit harder to match on the blue packs (series 2) than on the yellow (series 1). We will try to check the TRU accross from Oak Park mall today if possible.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Oh yeah only $1.99 at TRU

Gravatar
By in United States,

aren't they $3.99 @ borders?

Gravatar
By in United States,

yep, just like last series

Gravatar
By in United States,

hey peeps, i just checked the Toysrus near me, and no luck. gonna check on another one tomorrow.

btw, i found 30070 (that mini Toy Story alien spaceship...) there selling at a cool $4. neat, huh?

By in United States,

Anybody found figs at the TRU in Hurst,TX? I called but they did not have a clue what Lego Minifigures were. Same answer with 1-800-TOYSRUS.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Everybody I talk to at TRU over the phone keeps mentioning "Collectable Toy Story Minifigures" when I ask... What should I do to find them?(Series 2, not Toy Story)

Gravatar
By in United States,

@jlegofan: No one in the brick and mortar stores will have any idea what you are talking about usually. I tried that this time around and, like you, they thought I was talking about Toy Story. Without an item number, you are out of luck. Look at my earlier post for information about using the item number to locate them in your local store before you go...this is how I found two boxes at the Cedar Park, TX Toysrus.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I gave them the item number for the box... is that the right one? Because the person on the phone line for 1-800-TOYSRUS couldn't pick anything up with the box number.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Any sightings in the Boston area?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Found 2 boxes today at Katy Mills TRU Texas using the item #587572
Thanks Liisadd76. My family son and grandson thank you for posting the information on how to locate them.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@jlegofan: I don't know what item number you gave, but I gave the lady on the phone the item number 587572. The first person who answers the phone at 1-800-TOYSRUS won't be any help to you because they can only search the internet. They will not find this item number because these minifigs aren't being sold on the toysrus.com website yet. You have to specifically ask for a "land-based specialist" who will use the Item Number to search the inventory of the individual stores in your area using your zip code. It is best to call before the store opens, on a day that you know the store gets their trucks. Hope you find them!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Tulsa, OK central TRU had an empty display case at their service desk at 5 this afternoon. Sign posted said "Limit 10 per Guest". no one could answer any questions i had about when the minifigs showed up or when they'd restock. let the hunt begin!

Gravatar
By in United States,

I really hope TRU doesn't limit the figs. I have to buy a set for me, some for my wife, and I would like to be able to help my lugmates out if I can!

Gravatar
By in United States,

@liisadd76- Thanks so much! I'll call as soon as I can.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@liisadd76 - the toysrus 800 number with the item number given to the lady on the phone was perfect. She searched my zipcode and sure enough came up with two TRU that had them. Even gave me an amount at each store 110 at one 120 at the other store.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I am going to find out on the 28th

Gravatar
By in United States,

Went to the Lego store and the store manager mentioned a limit of 16 vice 5 from series 1. Wonder if the online store will go to a 16 limit.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Was able to find some today at TRU in Riverside IL, but not a complete set! Missing a witch! Hopefully the TRU closer to me will get some this week so I can complete my set! XX Fingers crossed XX

@ liisadd76---Thanks again for the incredible info---It works!!!!

@1265--That's awesome news about the limit increase, but could mean they sell out faster! Let's hope we all beat the "scalpers" and get them before they do!!!

Gravatar
By in Canada,

lol i walked by a walmart yesterday and didn`t go in it!! Hoping to go to walmart soon

Gravatar
By in United States,

@legogirl1: Were there many left at the Riverside TRU? That's a bit of a drive for me, but none of the TRUs near me seem to have them yet. (I'm up on the northside of Chicago (Evanston) and I've been stalking the TRUs in Niles and Highland Park without much success.)

Gravatar
By in United States,

@chicagorando: No, I bought what they had left, and inquired about their next shipment, which I was told would be towards the end of next week/end of the month!

By in United States,

i am gonna FIND AND BUY series 2 on 9-8-10. (i will probably get like 16 or (if they allow) 20.)

Gravatar
By in United States,

Kansas City - There are 1 2/3 boxes of the second series at the Barry Road Toys R Us in Kansas City. They are limiting you to 5 a person. They are at the customer service desk. This was 8-22-10. Good luck to all.

Gravatar
By in United States,

called 1800toysrus, spoke to 2 different people. Nobody seemed to know what I was talking about, item number above didn't work either. In NYC/Long Island area if anybody has any leads ...

Gravatar
By in United States,

@GV357, did you ask for a land based specialist, I did this today and spoke to a guy who was very helpful, knew what I was talking about (he read the description of the item number back to me) and searched all stores for my zip code. Unfortunately no stores had them in my area but I will call again during the week coming.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@wildcherryp3psi - I did ask for land based specalist and the lady was like "huh?!??" I think she was the land based specialist as she did ask for zipcode and item number. Didn't read description back to me though. I will call again this week. This forum rocks.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@GV357, I guess there's "specialists" that are more special and informative at the end of the line when people call them than others there. I hope you have luck in the week fingers crossed for us all.

@ R4-G9: I checked, 3 Ontario Wal-Marts but no luck. I hope the ebayer didn't buy the entire stock they had.

so does anyone still know if there are any Collectible Minifigs. in the east coast?

Gravatar
By in United States,

just found them at my local toys r us in lexington kentucky .
they sold series one for $1.99
then raised to $2.49
now they're charging $2.99 for ser2

they only received 60 packages of the figures, only 48 made it to the shelved (someone there collects as well)
I bought the 48 figures.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Still no luck in north Delaware or southern Pennsylvania...

Gravatar
By in United States,

Who sets the prices? They are $1.99 here in MN TRU's. The first series started out at $1.99 and increased to $2.49. Weird.

@voypro/collectormom/et al - Please note that this is not a discussion forum and moreso that any offcolor commentary, even meant as hyperbole, is completely out of line.

By in United States,

@yellowcastle - thanks for ending the matter.

I would love for anyone in the know, to explain price policy at tru, is price decided in-store, regionally, or what. There are no other options in my area, but tru.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Called my 2 tru's and the one said they were not receiving series 2 and the other one said they were promotional and they had the toy story alien. I guess i'll try borders and walmart.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I think that instead of calling every single TRU's store in the country (waiting 30 mins for them to answer the phone) we should be calling The LEGO Company. They should be able to tell us when and where the product will be availabe. That is what customer service is about!

Gravatar
By in United States,

@lego8x8 - no LEGO just says they'll be released before the end of the year. not very helpful.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@lego8x8 -- I imagine that Lego ships to TRU warehouses and it's on TRU to get the stuff out to the stores which means LEGO would have no idea when your local store is getting them. Meanwhile, calling 1-800-TOYSRUS and asking about item number 587572 per liisadd76's instructions works for finding out how many each store in your area currently has as well as when they expect more.

Gravatar
By in United States,

The customer service reps at the Lego company are usually very nice and quite knowledgable but please don't expect them to know when your local stores might be getting series 2. I was advised by someone at the Dallas northpark Lego store that they should be available later in September. My guess is next week sometime after the first of September.

Gravatar
By in United States,

To all my peeps in Phoenix AZ they have them at the Lego store in Chandler. They are $1.99 and they are limiting them to 5 per person per day. We were able to get 15 (was with hubby and son). I got 11 of 16 characters. Got 4 duplicates. I am missing the Spartan, vampire, mime witch and lifeguard. I am checking TRU tomorrow!!!! Woohoo.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Thanks for the link.

Just bought 18 on TRU website. They are $1.99 each plus tax and shipping. Again thanx to Legogirl19.

By in United States,

I called 1-800-toysrus about the local inventory but they were like, huh?, and advised me to call the store itself. I've no idea when I can buy them in VA

Gravatar
By in United States,

@legogirl19 - Thanks for the heads-up. Went and ordered 60. Kinda hoping they ship 60 loose packages instead of a box just to make it more of a mystery to see what I get.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Argh - Called 800 Number twice, went through the same process as above - asking to search local store inventory, and they never ask me a zip code and tell me that product isn't even out yet. Not sure what I'm doing wrong. I specifically ask to search local stores, and not the website. I would buy them on the website, but then you might get 10 of the same or whatever. Thanks everyone for the info, though.

By in United States,

Just placed an order for my minifigures! Thanks legogirl19!!!
My lugmates and I are very appreciative.

By in United States,

@Brick114 I'm in the NOVA area and was able to talk to a TRU employee when I was at the store in Sterling last Friday. They looked up information in the computer and told me that it was in the warehouse and would most likely hit stores soon. She said a truck was coming Wednesday morning that would probably have them but to call to verify.
BIG THANKS!!! for the TRU.com post. As much as I love hunting for them, it is nice to know they are on their way...

By in United States,

Thanks Legogirl19!!! I ordered mine, hopefully they send me a complete minifigure box and not just 60 packs in a shipping box.. Shipping is free as well if you buy enough....

The Lego Store in the Palisades Mall in NY has the minifigures. They also just got the Advent Calendar

Gravatar
By in United States,

Did anybody order series one online? I just bought 20 on TRU.com and I'm curious what kind of mix to expect. I suppose it would be between 8 and 14 different ones depending on my luck.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I would also like to add news that I, too, have found them in my local Lego store today, and the limit was 16! I was very surprised to see them there already, I had been told Sept. 1st! The store employee also had told me that they had just received them today and there were only a few left! YAY!!!

Gravatar
By in United States,

The link has been the only way that I have been able to find the minifigures on ToysRUs.com. I tried multiple queries and nothing came up for the link. Thanks again!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Called the King of Prussia, PA Lego store and was told they got 1,000 in and all were sold out within a few hours. They said with the 16 limit policy (vs the 5 of last time) means they won't be in the Lego stores very long at all.

I just ordered 20 from the ToysRUs site, just to be safe. Thanks for the link. We'll keep checking TRU B&M stores as well.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@legogirl19: Thanks for the link, just ordered mine.

Gravatar
By in United States,

thank you legogirl19 for the TRU link. i'm hoping 60 will equal at least one complete set (free shipping)... i don't have to wait for So CA to get their shipment in now.

Gravatar
By in United States,

It's too bad shipping at TRU is only free over $100, last week it was $75. Go through fatwallet.com or ebates.com and you can earn 1-2% back. That helps if you are buying a lot to offset some of the cost...although not much!

Gravatar
By in United States,

I hope that some of us can trade if we get doubles. I like that better than the ebay or craiglist route.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@legogirl19: Thanks for the info about the toyrus website!

I was at the Lego store in Austin at Barton Creek Mall (where they got their first shipment in today!) and they put a limit of 5 - ugh! That was OK, as I was only there buying the last four that my children wanted, as a surprise for after the first day of school.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Thank you for sharing the Toys R Us link for the minifigs. No limits and at $1.99 each is great, I was able to order 60 and get free shipping. Hopefully I'll get a box or at least the same distribution as seen in a box. It would not be cool to get 60 lion tamers. I live in a high cost area and my brick and mortar TRU's always have the markup and I completey expected them to have them at $2.49 when they got them in stock. I wonder how long they will last on the website before they are marked up or limits are put on.

Gravatar
By in United States,

And it appears TRU website is now out of stock of them...

Gravatar
By in Canada,

that was fast.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I first heard about it at around 10:40 am PST, and they sold out around 7:40 pm, so it wasn't that fast... With no limit imposed by TRU.com, I thought they would only last 30 minutes LOL! Glad I already got my order confirmed. :)

By in United States,

Me too!!! Hope I get the 5 figures I am looking for....

By in United States,

@ starfire2, thanks for the heads up about the Chandler store having Series 2.
2 x Spartans
2 x Weight Lifters
2 x Traffic Cops
2 x Pop Singers (one to give to my wife)
1 x Pharoah
1 x Disco Dude
1 x Skier
1 x Ringmaster
1 x Explorer
1 x Judoka
1 x Surfer
1 x Witch

I was able to use my barcode cheat sheet, take home 16 minifigures and helped other customers pick out specific figures they wanted. Chandler store is always very helpful and friendly!

Yay, the quest to complete my Seroes 2 set is almost over, just gotta wait for the ones my mum got me from the UK.

legogirl19 - Thank you sooooooo much for the link!!!

It was a good thing that I came to this site and saw the TRU order link. I was debating if I should order or not, but I remember how hard it was with Series 1, so I immediately placed my order. I would've been so upset if I waited and it's now out of stock. My local TRU sold series 1 for $2.49 and last time they limited to 2 each! I'm pretty sure they'll limit series 2 as well in the store.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Lego Store at Roosevelt Mall in Long Island, NY had some left over at closing as I was the last customer of the day. I was able to get every minifig except the Spartan! The Spartan was #1 on my list :(
I ordered 25 on TRU.com before I found out the local lego store had them. Debating canceling my order to buy some discontinued AGENT sets, but if anybody who missed out wants these extras, i'm happy to share.

Side note - figure quality feels very cheap. Lighter colors printed on darker base torsos look pretty bad too, i.e. Pop Singer and Lifeguard. Still awesome though, just not sure I want 25 extras.

Also my Karate Kid fighting my Ninja is great. Disco Stu's chest hair is best detail ever.

Wow, Roosevelt Field's got 'em! Thanks for the tip GV357. I ordered a bunch yesterday thanks to legogirl19's tip here on Brickset. Can't wait for them to come in.

So just talked to a toysrus "land based specialist", she knew the item number already before I even asked, they must be getting a lot of calls, but she said NO store has them yet. I am thinking that they have issued a new policy on these. . . .we'll see.

S@H said no one was suppose to put them out, not even lego stores.

I bought 48 at Lexington KY toy r us for $2.99, same day they went on sale at website (at nearly same time) for $1.99, I went back to my store for price adjustment to website price. Manager said they did not price match their own website.

I called and made a complaint to the 800-TRU, someone supposed to return my call.

How much are you USA TRU buyers paying for Ser2 (and where)?

I went to the Northbrook, IL Lego store as told by izziebitt and got myself a full set. They allow you to get 16. They currently had 2 mostly-full boxes open and claimed they had 2 full boxes in back in case anyone lives near the northern Chicago burbs.

@izziebitt - I was the guy in the black dress attire and teal tie. I was on my way from working at Mt. Sinai Hospital to a lecture at my medical school up in North Chicago. The Northbrook store was on my route. =)

TRU in Pinole, CA (SF Bay Area) has them behind the counter and limited to 1 (that's right one!!!!) per customer. I didn't even bother buying one. I'll look elsewhere.

I ordered the minifigs from TRU (when they had them listed the first time) - They were shipped from Columbus OH on Tuesday. I expect to have them tomorrow, as they have just arrived in NJ according to the tracking. I'll be sure to how many of each style I wound up with.

Just got back from Toys R Us in Grand Rapids, MI. I was able to get all of the figures I wanted plus two extras!

There was no limit, but they were selling them for $2.99. All well...they're worth every cent!

Thanks so much for the info liisadd76 (the guy at 1-800-ToysRUs was extremely helpful and friendly) and everyone who posted the barcode sheets!

I bought from TRU online, and they canceled my order four days later???? Weird - since they claim they ship within two days, you would have thought that they would have known sooner that they would have to cancel it. BTW, I ordered 60.... Did anyone else have this problem?

I just bought a complete box of 60 from bricklink.com for $135.00 US shipped! That's $2.25 each!

We should all stop supporting TRU and others who decide to jack up the prices. Just type in "minifigure series 2" on bricklink. The store belonging to "Toms Brickstore" is who I bought from. Plus this way you are guaranteed to get 3 sets. You must buy at least 1 box to get them. You cannot buy less than 1 box of 60.

I am tired of calling TRU weekly and the employees saying "uhhhhh I don't know".

Heres a Denver Metro update. Park Meadows is not sure if and when they will get them. Aurora said in two weeks and Westminster say they just sold out in a day and will be expecting more. Toysrus.com is still out of stock and I called two people that are land based specialist and they say the product is unavailable. I even went through with the ladies all the possible numbers. One didn't know why so many people were calling and after explaining how rare these things were she got a good laugh at her new found enlightenment. I ordered almost all of the figures 2 weeks ago from Germany off Bricklink and they are nice but like the majority of us want the Spartan for an army. One thing i'm disappointed in is the yellow print paint on the Lifeguards chest. It's a dirty yellow since the red torso was the base and yellow printed on top of that makes it look that way. BTW, just called Lego Colorado Mills and they had them last week, there not getting them this week and not sure about next week. Lego.com will get them on Sept 1st. and there limited 16 per person like its been written before.

Just ordered 16 on the Lego website last night, will get a random assortment, with doubles and possibly triples of some, and none of others....but our closest TRU is an hour and a half drive away, AND they sell ALL of their Legos at 5% OVER MSRP...lame. Who knows how much they jacked up the price of the minifigs. I wish they had them at Target...
