LEGO Collectible Minifigures Series 12 Not Available Until Oct 2014

Brick Fanatics is reporting that the Series 12 of the LEGO Collectible Minifigures will not be available until October 2014. As we know by now, The LEGO Movie Collectible Minifigures (71004) and The Simpsons Collectible Minifigures (71005) will be a subtheme of the Minifigures line and not part of the main numbered series. The LEGO Movie minifigures are starting to hit stores here in the US and will be officially available on January 1st and The Simpsons Collectible Minifigures will be available in May 2014.

As we have mentioned last week, the LEGO Minifigures Online MMO will be out next summer and they will have a special line of minifigures to go along with the game. These minifigures will also include a code to unlock that character digitally. With three waves of minifigures coming out with a a short break in between waves, this pushes Series 12 back until next fall.

We’re looking forward to getting all the minifigures coming out next year. If Series 12 is indeed coming out next October, it’ll be the first time that LEGO will have four different waves of Collectible Minifigures coming out in a single year. What do you think of potentially having four waves of minifigures coming out in 2014?

    At least now we have something more official than speculation in referance to Series 12. Well, it doesn’t bother me too much considering I won’t bother with the Simpsons line but that is just me. Next year definately looks to be ‘the year of the smoosher’ with all these releases!

    • Well Series 12 is still up in the air. I haven’t heard anything close to official about it but BF is a pretty reliable source. I assumed that since we were already getting 3 waves, Series 12 would be bumped to 2015.

    Sounds to me like more figs to be resold. I agree though that the Simpsons wave is not going to be a hit.

    • Your movie minifigs are selling like hotcakes! It seems that not many people are digging the Simpsons. I think they look fine.

        Because who is possibly going to want more than 1 of each. They aren’t exactly useful.
