Classic Toy Museum LEGO Minifigure Trading Event

If you’re in the Burlingame/San Mateo/San Francisco area on Saturday, October 26th, we have something that may interest you. Gary Doss, the Curator of the Classic Toy Museum, has reached out to us to tell you about a LEGO Minifigure Trading Event they are holding at the museum. Bring in any of your duplicate minifigures and trade them with other visitors at the museum to build up your collection. You can make some new friends as well as get new minifigures that you may not have before. Head over to or call 650-347-2301 for more information. The event is held at 214 California Drive, Burlingame, CA 94010 at the Burlingame Museum of PEZ Memorabilia from 1pm-2pm. During the trading event, you will also have free admission to the museums.


LEGO Iron Man 3 Posters

LEGO Iron Man 3 Poster

LEGO has released a couple of posters of the Iron Man 3 movie using all the Iron Man minifigures from the Marvel Super Heroes sets. The above poster also shows the Iron Patriot minifigure which hasn’t been released in a set before. Does this mean that there might be one coming out in the near future? The bottom poster shows Tony Stark getting out of the ocean while his fleet of Iron Man suits flying above him.

Project Swapfig Needs Your Help on Kickstarter

Drew Maughan, aka SilentMode, has created a nifty LEGO project called Project Swapfig and he needs your support on Kickstarter. If you haven’t heard of Kickstarter, it is a crowd funding site that allows individuals to promote their ideas and hopefully have enough supporters to get their project off the ground.

So what is Project Swapfig? It is a “site where collectors of LEGO minifigures can trade their unwanted figures for ones they want.” Why is this a good idea to support? It’s because there’s not really any good trading sites out there and this is where Project Swapfig bridges the gap for traders even more.

Right now the project is at about 38% supported but it still needs your help to reach the goal of £3,000 but time is of the essence because there is only 6 days left to support it. I believe the goal is still reachable but only if you help spread the word on this awesome project.

Project Swapfig will be launching May 1st whether or not the goal will be reached but the funds will immensely help with the development of the site. There are some bonuses you get if you do pledge your money to support Drew and his creation such as some custom minifigures you won’t find anywhere else. Head on over to Kickstarter to see what you could get as well as demo images of what the site has to offer.


LEGO Lord of the Rings 2013 Minifigures Leaked

An image of the new LEGO Lord of the Rings minifigures for the 2013 sets have been leaked on the very popular site, Reddit. The image is marked “Confidential” so we won’t be posting or linking to the page but if you do some digging, you can probably find it. What I can tell you is that there are 20 new minifigures for the 2013 sets including the long-waited Gandalf the White and the Mouth of Sauron. There is also a minifigure called Pirate of Umbar which is the character that Peter Jackson did the cameo for. You can see that minifig in our post of the Pirate Ship Ambush here. Which minifig(s) are you looking forward to picking up when they come out?


LEGO Collectible Minifigures Series 9 News Update

LEGO Collectible Minifigures Series 9

According to Brick Fanatics, there will be some changes coming to the Series 9 LEGO Collectible Minifigures. A month ago, WhiteFang on Eurobricks did a review on the minifigures and did a breakdown of what he got in the box. He noted that he only had two full sets in the box instead of the usual three as in previous series, which has caused some ruckus in the LEGO community. But that is not the end of the changes as Kim Thomsen on the Ambassador site states that:

The reason for the new split is that we are introducing a smaller box with only 30 bags – and 3 is such a troublesome amount to split in half.

So now (soon) you can buy a box and get a whole set plus 14 instead of buying a box of 60.

For me as a casual collector, I don’t see an issue with this. I’m very comfortable in buying a smaller and cheaper box and know that I’m guaranteed of getting one full set plus some extras. I can also see the other side of the coin where people would like more minifigures to build an army or to resell them later. What on your thoughts on this major change to this series of Collectible Minifigures and possible future series?
