These are not made by Lego, but are darn cool and made from Lego parts. So just ordered a full set from Bricks & Minifigs out Albuquerque New Mexico.
The Olympic minifigs are some of the rarest collectible Lego minfigs to come out this year. Second, I think only to the Marvel and DC comic minfigs that are exclusives at select conventions. Though still available on eBay these minifigs are normally sold in retail stores throughout the U.K. and Ireland. So buying these anywhere else is expensive, however the time to buy is now… the price will only go up in years to come.
Luckily for me I spend hours working in front of the computer, and thus have time to check for deals on a regular basis. With some careful purchases I was able to secure a full set of 9, along with a spare relay runner and gymnast as well. Average cost (ouch) which includes shipping for me was $6.81, I think cost wise I did “ok” for these in the end.
Anyways here is a quick pic of a full set…
And once again the search begins! Series 7 of the Collectible Minifigures has started appearing in stores. Although the LEGO Store Catalog claims they will be available in May, they are already showing up in Toys R Us, Fred Meyer, and other retailers around the US.
