Series 10 minfigures are now starting to appear at various retailers. Start checking your local stores and see if you can find Mr.Gold! The official release date is in early May (you can visit your local LEGO Store on May 6 to look for Mr.Gold).
When 9526 Palpatine’s Arrest was revealed, it was a set that was highly sought after (mainly for the minifigures). But with the high retail price of $120 Canadian, it was a no to most people and already foreshadowed that a clearance is needed to actually move these sets. Even the US price at $90 is ridiculous for a set this size.
And it looks like we’re right. This week from April 19-25, Toys R Us Canada will be offering 40% off on their exclusive 9526 Palpatine’s Arrest set. Its now available for $71.87 (reg.$119.99) which should really have been the regular price to start off with. Free shipping when you purchase 3 or more LEGO sets for online purchases. They also got these other sets discounted as well. Thanks to forum member sneaky07 for the news.
City 4202 Mining Truck $29.87 (reg. $49.99) 40% off
City 8069 Backhoe Loader $47.87 (reg. $79.99) 40% off
Hobbit 79010 The Goblin King Battle $99.87 (reg. $129.99) 23% off
In addition, they also have the online exclusive LEGO 10218 Pet Shop on sale for $159.97 (reg.$199.99) which works out to be 20% off. This particular sale price is for a limited time offer only so act fast if you want one. Thanks to forum member swills for the news.
Another set image for the DC Man of Steel Superman Movie has been revealed! This time, its 76009 Superman Black Zero Escape. The set will contain 168 pieces and 3 minifigures including Lois Lane, General Zod and of course, Superman. Thanks to forum member legohunter for the news. (via whung at Eurobricks)

More LEGO Friends 2013 Summer pictures have surfaced from LEGO.com. This includes the highly anticipated and sought after LEGO Friends Dolphin Cruiser and Downtown Bakery! The other sets are the smaller ones and should be priced at $9.99 USD / $12.99 CAD / £9.99 GBP. (via Eurobricks)
An eBay listing has revealed the first images of the highly anticipated LEGO Mr.Gold Minifigure from the new LEGO 71001 Series 10. The German seller has the price listed as EUR 999.00 ($1300). Number 865. Thanks to Jonathan and forum members BrickWild and lordbrick for the news.
Another eBay listing also shows another picture of Mr.Gold. This US seller has it listed at $3000 or best offer. Number 4628. The seller’s location is in Portland, Oregon where it is one of the States that Fred Meyer stores are located (their stores are now carrying Series 10 minifigures).
With only 5000 of these minifigures released worldwide, this obviously is going to result in a shortage. I’m sure that after we see more of these listings (and they go off via auction), we’ll see the real market equilibrium price. Back in 2007, something similar happened when LEGO randomly inserted 10 000 Gold-plated C-3PO minifigure in 2007 LEGO Star Wars sets. When they first started appearing, prices were very high. As more of them started appearing, the prices for these minifigures went to about $100 on eBay.
If you really want one of these Mr.Gold minifigures and planning to fork out this much money, we would advise finding it yourself first. If you do some simple math, you can already buy 433 Series 10 minifigures already (7 boxes) with $1300. For the $3000 price tag, you can get 1000 Series 10 minifigures (16 boxes).
