The new LEGO 71012 Disney LEGO Collectable Series Minifigures is now sold out at the LEGO Shop at Home (USA | Canada). They were sold out midday on the initial date of release on May 1st, 2016. Your best bet now is to check your local stores for availability.
For those living in Europe, LEGO Shop at Home UK still has them instock at £2.49 each. However, they probably won’t last too long over there so if you haven’t ordered yours yet, you should soon!

The LEGO Group, a private company owned by the Kirk Kristiansen family has announced that it will pass over its ownership to the next generation. Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen will switch roles with his son, Thomas Kirk Kristiansen. Thomas is the fourth generation of the LEGO family.
“The Kirk Kristiansen family, which owns the LEGO Group, announces today that the family will now take important steps in the smooth handover of active ownership to the next generation – a process which has been under way for several years.
Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen (68) and his son, Thomas Kirk Kristiansen (37), will swap roles on the board of directors of LEGO A/S – with Thomas Kirk Kristiansen becoming deputy chairman and his father becoming an ordinary member of the board. On the board of the LEGO Foundation Thomas Kirk Kristiansen becomes chairman, with Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen becoming deputy chairman.”
