5005358 LEGO Minifigure Factory revealed!

Posted by ,

A couple of upcoming promotions have been revealed in the April 2018 LEGO store calendar for North America, most notable of which is the hitherto unknown 5005358 LEGO Minifigure Factory!

This small set is packaged in a cardboard box and celebrates the fortieth anniversary of the LEGO minifigure, featuring a LEGO employee and four printed microfigures, one of which appears to take inspiration from the classic blue Spaceman. It will be available with purchases of over $75 in the US.

Furthermore, 5005376 Star Wars Anniversary Pod will be available with Star Wars purchases of over $60. I expect similar offers to be available around the world, although this has yet to be confirmed.

You can view the entire calendar after the break...

The reverse of the calendar also confirms that the eighteenth series of Collectable Minifigures and 41597 Go Brick Me will be available in April, presumably from the 1st.

I got the third view!
So, the minifigure factory set will be available with orders over $75 in April and the US?

I like how the factory offer is from the 1st to the 15th and the pod fron the 13th onwards gonna have a lot of lego fans weighing pros and cons of trying to snag both with a single order.

Well played lego, well played.

Looks like they fixed whatever the problem was with the Darth Vader pods...

This will be sold out within a couple of days, like the 60 years anniversary set.

Definately want that Minfigure Factory Set, even though it looks like there aren't that many actual pieces in it. It appears most of the interesting decorations come from printing on the inside of the box, which then becomes the display.

Funny that Mandrproductions made a youtube video about the darth vader pod cancellation yesterday which was already news about 2 months, now it looks like it's going to be made. Cool. A fine addition to my collection.

Pixal- rebooted from #70724 appears to be on the left side. Purple and white is unique.

No Double VIP points event nor in March, neither in April. I'm dissapointed:(

Aw come on is LEGO seriouly releasing the Solo sets a week after both of Darth Vader and Minifigure Factory offer has passed? I planned to buy Tie Fighther and two Imperial Speeder BP to nab both.
Edit: seems I misinterpreted the April 23-June dates as the launch of new sets, the Darth Vader offer ends right before May the Fourth, I wonder......

The set is awful. There are like 40 pieces and a cardboard wall.

Love the idea of more printed microfigures!!

Kind of hard to make out, but does the microfigure all the way to the right look like the classic policeman (a.k.a. the first minifigure, iirc)?

Has anyone heard about the 2018 ucs? I would love to buy the May one to get the dearth Vader pod but looks like Thebes promo endangered before May the fourth. I heard it’s a ywing but still no leaks…

Glad all those articles online and on youTube weren't accurate about the Vader Pod NEVER coming out. All of them made it seem they had insider knowledge and knew for a fact it was cancelled.

they keep teasing us with micro builds or micro figs of classic space but never an actual classic space set to celebrate its 40th anniversary. ??

It’s available in the UK with purchases over £55. 2-22 April.

Wow, I hadn't even realised that wall was cardboard! Lego really is getting cheaper by the minute.

Does this mean another month without 2x VIP or any new exclusive set? In comparison to the last year's exclusives storm my wallet is happy.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Well I suppose that's an excuse to buy a bunch of costume series minifigs!

Gravatar

I think the minifigures are...

NinjaGo Rebooted figure
Astronaut / Scientist
Classic Space
Batman / Classic Cop

As others have noted, I am pretty bummed about another month with no x2 VIP points. Amazon it is... sorry Shop Lego.

Looks like five nanos to me there's a ed one behind the minifig.

Another month without a double VIP points day? :(
