There’s been some LEGO happenings lately that we never properly covered, so I figured that now in post Toy Fair world we could do a little post to round some of them up.
First off, the ever popular LEGO Minifigure series is finally getting a chase figure. That’s right after nine different collections of standard 16 mystery minifigures per series we will now be getting something new thrown into the mix. It turns out that LEGO will be introducing a rare gold minifigure starting with Minifigure Series 10 and that gold minifig will be limited to 5000 pieces world wide. Each Golden Minifigure will have a unique code that will allow them to be tracked on LEGO.com to see how many have been found.
Speaking of special minifigures, certain VIP members have been receiving a little surprise in their mailboxes recently. A red chrome minifig keychain has been making it’s way to certain customers along with a Valentine’s Day card which thanks the customer for being a valued LEGO VIP customer. It was said that not every LEGO VIP member will receive one, and there is speculation that the criteria may be based on purchase frequency or amount from a physical LEGO store or from shop.LEGO.com.
And finally we now have images of the boxart for another LEGO DVD/Blu-Ray release. LEGO Batman: The Movie – DC Super Heroes Unite will apparently come to us in a Blu-Ray + DVD + Ultraviolet combo pack AND will be packed with a special Clark Kent Minifigure as a bonus. The movie is due out on May 21, 2013.
