If you’re wanting a Mr. Gold minifigure from the recently released Series 10 Collectible Minifigures (71001) theme and feeling generous, now’s your chance to help out a great cause. BrickBrats has listed an auction on eBay to benefit the American Lung Association of California. May is Asthma Awareness Month and they are letting people know more about the cause because the disease has affected their family directly and now they are giving back. All the proceeds from the auction will go directly to the American Lung Association of California so you’ll know exactly where your money is going. The auction has 8 days left with a current high bid of $510 as of this writing. This Mr. Gold minifigure is numbered #4625/5000.


LEGO Collectible Minifigures Series 10 Mr. Gold Found in North America

According to Brickset, a couple of collectors in North America have found the elusive Mr. Gold minifigure from the Series 10 Collectible Minifigures (71001) line. The minifig was found at Walmart in Ontario, Canada so if you’re wondering if they could be found in normal retail stores and not just LEGO stores, there’s the proof. The image above shows Mr. Gold that was found from a collector in Georgia.

If you’ve been lucky few to find Mr. Gold this early, now’s your chance to make some quick bucks on eBay or Bricklink. There was an auction on eBay that ended just today that sold for $1200 from a seller in Oregon.


LEGO Collectible Minifigures Series 10 Mr. Gold Minifigure Found

A German seller has found 2 of the 5000 Mr. Gold minifigures that are in Series 10 LEGO Collectible Minifigures and they are now on eBay for €999 or about $1,307.09. The two minifigures are numbered 865/5000 and 870/5000.

The high prices of the Mr. Gold minifigures aren’t surprising since these are probably the first ones to show up on eBay but I know I won’t be paying insanely amounts of money just to get it. Probably a majority of collectors out there might miss out on him and might end up paying quite a penny just to get one. Hopefully more show up online and prices drop significantly to be tempting enough to pick one up.
