Those figures are incredible. $2 each is a bit cheaper than i thought but with them being randomized... its going to really frustrate those that want a particular figure.

I think you may be able to feel the parts inside the bag and can then buy which one's you want.

I like numbers 12 and 16 because I can use them to make Lego BORG minifigs!

I heard from another site that the packaging will be good and you won't be able to feel the pieces which means its totally randomized.

I'm starting to wonder if these minifigures are regular quality like the ones you get in a lego set or the cheap plastic ones in the magnets.

Besides healthy inherent skepticism, what makes you think these will be the cheap kind?

You never know but there is a possibility. We all thought the removeable magnets are like regular minifigures. But when they actually came out, they were a cheaper quality.

^ It seems like the only times we get cheap minifigs is when they're pre-built like in chess, tic tac toe, magnets, etc. It's unlikely they would put pre-built minifigs in that kind of packaging, so I would guess high quality.

Does anyone know if its possible to purchase the entire set with all the minifigures or do we have to purchase all of them randomly?

I assume you will have to purchase them separately.

From the packaging, it looks like you may be able to feel the pieces in there afterwards. Or is there some sort of substances inside that prevents that? Nice poster.

I think I'll just wait a year, and I know darn well I'll get a few in some of the lots I buy. People always throw in minifigs. I mean I can wait for a while. As AWESOME as they are, I'd rather wait so I don't have to pay a premium for em :)

They are also revealing more confidental images on their site like atlantis and kingdoms with prices. All their prices however seems higher than msrp.

LEGO has unveiled their microsites for the collectible minifig series, in three flavors:

US: http://minifigures.lego.com/en-US/Default.aspx

UK: http://minifigures.lego.com/en-gb/Default.aspx

German: http://minifigures.lego.com/de-DE/Default.aspx

The write-ups for each are funny. I'm really getting psyched for these. Do you think it would make sense to grab a case and do some sort of online trading circle?

Thanks for the news. An online trading circle would definately work. I'll try to setup another poll soon to see if there is enough interest.
