Lego Minions, these are not by Lego, but are darn cool.

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.



Lego 2012 U.K. Olympic Minifigures

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…
