LEGO Collectible Minifigures Series 13 (71008) Review

LEGO Collectible Minifigures Series 13 (71008)

A new year and a new wave of LEGO Collectible Minifigure has been released, Series 13 (71008). The packaging for this series is more of a lime green color. Like with recent minifigures, they will retail for $3.99 each and there are 16 to collect.

Like with Series 12, Series 13 will be collaborating with the LEGO Minifigures Online video game where you can unlock the corresponding minifigure in-game but that’s not all. In one of our previous posts, we also talked about the “Collect & Win” thing LEGO has going with Series 13. Not only will you be able to unlock a character, there’s also a chance to win in game currency with free diamonds, looting Super Chests, 3 days of membership, or gaining Stars faster. If you enter your email, you can also try your luck to win some LEGO sets straight from the company. The more codes you enter, the more chances there are to win.

As with previous the past couple of series of minifigures I’ve been collecting, I’ve been using the feeling method to find the correct minifigures. You can read more about it on our feel guide post.

LEGO Collectible Minifigures Series 13 (71008) Collect & Win

LEGO Collectible Minifigures Series 13 (71008)

The Series 13 LEGO Collectible Minifigures (71008) have been officially released for a day now and many of you have gotten a couple of them, probably all of them. You may notice a mysterious “Collect & Win” logo on the box, packets, as well as on the inserts.

LEGO Collectible Minifigures Series 13 (71008)

When you follow the link, it’ll direct you to enter the code that is included with every minifigure. This code allows you to unlock the corresponding character in the LEGO Minifigures Online game as well as a chance for free Diamonds, 3 days of membership, be able to loot Super Chests, and gain Stars faster when you enter it in-game but that’s not all. Keep in mind that you won’t be getting all the things listed. I entered the codes for all my minifigures and I got Diamonds only once or twice. All of the other ones were the 3 day memberships.

On the next page, you can try your luck to win some random LEGO sets. All you need to do is to enter your email that LEGO can use to contact you if you are chosen as a winner. Each code you enter gives you more chances to win so it’s sort of an incentive to buy more minifigures. Odds of actually winning is probably small to none but it doesn’t hurt to try.

LEGO Collectible Minifigures Series 13 (71008) Feel Guide

LEGO Collectible Minifigures Series 13 (71008)

With an overwhelming positive response through emails and comments on our Feel Guide for the Series 12 LEGO Collectible Minifigures (71007), we’re going to do another one for the upcoming Series 13 as well. since there are no physical copies yet in hand yet, we’ll just go off the images from WhiteFang’s review on Eurobricks of some of the more notable things to look for with each minifigure. We should start seeing Series 13 hitting the shelves early again in a couple of weeks at retailers such as Walgreens, Target, Walmart, and Toys R Us.

1. King
The easiest thing to feel for will probably be the crown/hair piece. The pointed greatsword is also helpful but be careful since there there are three other minifigures in this series that also have swords.

2. Sheriff
Since there are no other minifigures that have a 2×2 tile, this will be one of the easiest things to feel for along with the hat for the Sheriff.

3. Unicorn Girl
Her bulky horse headpiece is probably the best indication that you’ve found her. The tail piece is also helpful.

4. Snake Charmer
There are a number of things for the Snake Charmer that can differentiate him from the others in Series 13. The turban, stick, and cobra snake are all good things to feel for.

5. Goblin
Like the previous minifigure, the Goblin also has three things you can feel for to him him, the scimitar, bag, and headpiece with ears.

6. Paleontologist
To find the Paleontologist, her safari hat … Continue

LEGO Collectible Minifigures Series 13 (71008)

WhiteFang over on Eurobricks has done his review of the Series 13 LEGO Collectible Minifigures (71008) and has given a distribution of each minifigure in a full box. Again, LEGO has gone back to having three complete sets per box.

Looking at the distribution, it looks like some of the more populars ones so far will be fairly hard to find including the Unicorn Girl and the Hot Dog Man. For the army builders, it’ll be fairly easy to find the Goblins, Galaxy Troopers, and Alien Troopers.

4 Sheriffs
4 Snake Charmers
4 Alien Troopers
4 Egyptian Warriors

LEGO Collectible Minifigures Series 13 (71008) will be available at LEGO Stores and on [email protected] on January 1st and I assume the price will be same at $3.99/pack. You can probably start seeing them at larger retailers like Walmart, Target, Toys R Us, and Walgreens in mid to late December.

LEGO Club Magazine Shows Off Series 13 Collectible Minifigure (71008)?

LEGO Collectible Minifigures Series 13 (71008) - Unicorn?

There’s some interesting details coming out of the Twitterverse today. Goggleblox noticed something new on the back of the new LEGO Club Magazine. It must be different from the US version because my copy does not show the image. The image shows what appears to be a person in a Unicorn costume. Could this be one of the characters in the Series 13 LEGO Collectible Minifigures (71008)?

As you may have known, costumed characters have always been a staple in the the LEGO Collectible Minifigures line and this looks like proof that another one will be in the upcoming series. The Unicorn that is pictured shows a female in a costume with some star printing on the torso and some hoof printing on the feet. The head is a horse head with a horn piece attached to the top. She is also shown holding some 1×1 round plates which could represent some snow. I’m not sure if they will be included with the minifigure or not.

What do you guys think of having an Unicorn as one of the Series 13 LEGO Collectible Minifigures (71008)?
