LEGO minifigures are more than little people…

LEGO minifigures are more than little plastic people… they are in fact an OBSESSION! Watch out, or they will take over your life! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

I have to confess; collecting LEGO minifigures is a large part of why I sink most of my money into LEGO. If you are like me, one of the best parts of getting a new LEGO set is putting the little people together, and seeing whether they make it up to your expectations. So after a couple years of this youโ€™re bound to have a LOT of LEGO minifigs,ย right? ๐Ÿ˜€

So, what do you DO with all those LEGO minifigures? After a little while the excitement of having your evil knights hang a poor little good soldier on the wall probably wears off, and you begin to realize that the fun behind LEGO minifigs really isnโ€™t playing with them. Itโ€™s collecting them!!!

Just like with collecting stamps, coins, and Beanie Babies (is there anyone who still does that?), your obsession grows and grows and you find yourself with a TON of LEGO minifigs! If you are a TFOL (teen-fan-of-LEGO) you can also use collecting as an excuse to still โ€œplayโ€ with LEGO. ๐Ÿ˜‰

So, how many LEGO minifigures do you own? I have about 100 LEGO Star Wars minifigures (pictured below):

Do you have a favorite LEGO theme from which you collect the minifigures? LEGO Star Wars is theย theme I collect. Or do you really like collecting LEGO Ninjago? Or some other theme? You probably also have one set of people, or one minifig thatโ€™s your most prized. Which one? By far the highlight of my collection isย the Jedi:

Do you go out and try to get the exclusive LEGO minifigures? Like a golden C-3PO? Or a chrome Stormtrooper? I have the Celebration Luke and Han that are pretty special.

What character do you want the most? Have you always tried to get a Lord Garmadon from LEGO Ninjago, but just couldnโ€™t get your hands on him? Or like me, have you always wanted a LEGO Star Wars Boba Fett? ๐Ÿ˜›

Now it is your turn! Please share in the comments section below:

  1. What is your favorite theme to get LEGO minifigs from?
  2. Which is your most precious minifig?
  3. Which LEGO minifigures do you really want to get?
  4. Roughly how many minifigures do you have?

You might also want to check out the LEGO Minifigures section, the LEGO Star Wars section, or the LEGO Ninjago section. Also the LEGOย Castle theme and the upcoming LEGO Lord of the Rings themeย come withย great minifigures that would appeal to collectors.ย So let me know what you think! Thanks for sharing, and for reading my first post here! ๐Ÿ™‚

Its so true,minifigures are indeed an obsession well: 1)My favorite lego themes are City and Collectible Minifigures. 2)I do not at all know my most precious minifig,I do not want to be in some weird cases be mean to other minifigs ๐Ÿ™‚ so I don’t choose my precious one. 3)I would like to get some minifigs from any new lego minifigure series that comes out. 4)Not even the heavens know how many minifigures I own,estimation:1000- yep you heard right- I have been collecting lego for a LONG time

gid617 April 13, 2012 at 11:05 AM

My favorite theme is ninjago, and I love collecting the spinners so I have around 20 ninjago minifigures. I would probably say that the ZX ninjas, as a group, are my favorite (I only have Jay and Kai – and Kai is awesome) but I like combining pieces from differnt minifigures. I have 33 minifigures from the collectable series, and probably around 200 total. I really want Zane ZX but I’lll wait until his booster pack. I also want several of the series six and seven minifigures (especially tha tenis player, bunny, aztec, and butcher, + the minotaur). As far as my estimation, it’s been a long time since I’ve counted (or even built) all my minifigs. So I’m sure I have a lot (I’ve been collecting legos since I was aprox. 6 – and I’m a TFOL now). ๐Ÿ˜‰

Great post, interesting discussion! Although I have around 500 minifigures, I don’t know if I would qualify for minifigure collector from a purist perspective. I’m an army-builder and customizer, and I like to make up my own minifigures, rather than collecting officially released ones. Although I do like some of the official figs too.

My favorite theme is definitely castle, and any other theme that is fantasy and history related (ninja, Lord of the Rings, Vikings, Native Americans, etc.). I pretty much like all minifigures in these themes, but again; I customize most of them.

One admission I have to make is that even though I love Star Wars, I’m afraid to get into collecting SW minifigs. There is an endless variety of them, and I’m worried I will go broke! I don’t have the space for them either. The only SW fig I could not resist is Aayla Sekura. She is the sweetest minifig ever! ๐Ÿ™‚

As far as official figs, I very much like the collectible minifigures as they really opened up the possibilities with minifigures from themes LEGO hasn’t touched yet with a full line. I don’t collect all the minifigs from the series, but I do get the ones I really like. Even use them for army-building.

As far is which one is my most favorite minifig, I do agree with Nicolas; I don’t want to make any of them feel bad, so I don’t have a most favorite one. I like them all! ๐Ÿ˜€

Oh, and I also collect LEGO Friends. Do they qualify as minifigs? ๐Ÿ™„

Here is a picture of some of my guys:

YTjedi April 13, 2012 at 11:13 AM

1. Favorite theme for minifigs:
Definitely Star Wars. I’ve been collecting them from the beginning.

2. Most precious minifig:
That’s a tough one. I really like the ones based on my favorite characters like Boba Fett and Cad Bane. There are also a few of the collectible minifigs that I like above the rest like the luchador/wrestler and the old school robot from Series 1. But as far as “precious” goes (fondest memories, most played with) I would say it’s between a black Futuron minifig, an armored knight from the older caste sets and the Jedi Luke Skywalker on Endor from one of the first LEGO Star Wars sets back in 1999. I’ve swung the lightsaber around in that Luke’s hand so much that his wrist is loose and he has difficulty holding a lightsaber upright anymore. The knight and the spaceman were the main heroes during many a playtime of my childhood years.

3. LEGO minifigs to get:
I’m always looking forward to new Star Wars figures. The thing that’s great with Star Wars is that all the characters get a little bit of the spotlight. And it’s nice that the representation is there in LEGO as much as it is in Hasbro/Kenner action figures (granted there haven’t been as many LEGO figs seeing as how the action figures had a 20 year head start on Star Wars). No character gets left behind it seems like. I mean, we have a LEGO Wald! How awesome is that?!

Anyway, also on my radar are all the new super heroes and villains as well as the Lord of the Rings minifigs. And my wife loves Lord of the Rings, so I won’t even have to convince her that we should get those; she’s probably wondering why I haven’t pre-ordered them yet! ๐Ÿ™‚

4. According to my Brickset collection I have 1000+ minifigs, over half of them are Star Wars, and about 100 of those are some version of Battle Droid.

James April 13, 2012 at 11:41 AM

Great article. I too love minifigures.
My answers are:
1. My current favourite theme for minifigs is Pirates of the Caribbean and I also love some the collectible minifigures figures in s6 and s7.
2. I don’t really have a most precious figure, but I have a soft spot for the knights from the old yellow castle set.
3. I’m really looking forward to the Lord of the Rings minifigures.
4. Not sure exactly – hundreds.

Allen April 13, 2012 at 11:46 AM

1. What is your favorite theme to get LEGO minifigs from?
Definitely Star Wars

2. Which is your most precious minifig?
I don’t like to discriminate so all of them are precious to me but if I had to pick, it would be Admiral Ackbar.

3. Which LEGO minifigures do you really want to get?
There’s so many that I want. The new series 7 minifigs, LOTR, Marvel Super Heroes, Chrome Darth Vader, White Boba Fett just to name a few.

4. Roughly how many minifigures do you have?
I have about 100 so far just because I’ve recently started collecting LEGO again.

lloyd zx April 13, 2012 at 11:54 AM

Just so you know, the spinner sets are made out of a cheaper Chinese plastic. Consequently, I do not buy them.

lloyd zx April 13, 2012 at 12:00 PM

I have about 100 minifigs. I do not necessarily collect them; I just get sets with minifigs I like. If I had to pick, though, my favorites would be my really old Bobba Fett and Gamorrean guard that I got with Jabba’s prize, a set from like 2002. I also get a kick out of the old Hans Solo Carbonite. My favorite figures to collect are city most likely. I have two fire stations and several fire trucks.

Hedgehog April 13, 2012 at 12:28 PM

Great article on mini figures! Really enjoyed reading the post.
My favorite are castle/kingdoms mini figures.. Will send u pictures shortly.

nicolas-n. April 13, 2012 at 12:30 PM

Luca April 13, 2012 at 12:59 PM

nicolas-n. April 13, 2012 at 1:01 PM

Who are you asking Luca?

Chris of Yoda Archives April 13, 2012 at 1:11 PM

What is your favorite theme to get LEGO minifigs from?
Star Wars and I’m really looking forward to the LOTR and Super Hero sets
Which is your most precious minifig? Yoda and Darth Vader are my favorite characters. Plus I have some Yellow skin figs from the early Star Wars LEGO sets.

Which LEGO minifigures do you really want to get?
Bagpaiper, Neptune, Wolverine, Black Knight.

Roughly how many minifigures do you have?
Not That many since I took along break from collecting. You can see some of mine by clicking my name and visiting my toy photography blog.

Chris of Yoda Archives April 13, 2012 at 1:13 PM

Wow Nice army collections.

nicolas-n. April 13, 2012 at 1:27 PM

Star wars and ninjago.
My McDonalds worker
I have roughly 80 mini figures.
And I totally agree with you about teens, for I myself am one and I love LEGOS!!!!!

nrggarmadonzx April 13, 2012 at 3:10 PM

hey admin does it have to be your whole collection or can i send a picture of my favourite minifigures because it would be hard to take a picture of my whole collection because i just moved and most are still in boxes

Tobymacboy April 13, 2012 at 3:34 PM

I keep count of my minfigures , adding one to the number each time I get one. My currnet number? 135 80% star wars.

Kevinhink April 13, 2012 at 3:47 PM

Great article! It’s also great to see such an active response in the comments as well… a testament to the popularity of the LEGO minifig? ๐Ÿ™‚

What is your favorite theme to get LEGO minifigs from?
Star Wars and Super Heroes (DC & Marvel)

Which is your most precious minifig?
Gold Chrome C-3PO

Which LEGO minifigures do you really want to get?
The Captain America and Iron Man minifigs given out at the LEGO Booth at the NY Toy Fair 2012. :'(

Roughly how many minifigures do you have?
Approximately 500

VIE April 13, 2012 at 4:07 PM

an I come over and play? WOW I just started collecting them , Not a Teen ,but a REAL OLD senior ( big 70 this Sept.) I love them all remind me of my mini dollhouse things. My son is coming to visit I will need to hide my my new toys I want one of everything

YTjedi April 13, 2012 at 4:53 PM

I’d say a testament to the minifig, but also a testament to the response-provoking posts constantly found on this site. There are always questions inviting participation at the end of each article and that’s what makes it one of the few, if only, sites I comment on articles.

TheGothamCostructionCo April 13, 2012 at 5:30 PM

1. Star wars, DC superheroes and Indiana Jones. I think the gravity of seeing my childhood heroes taking on the form of my favorite childhood toy was to strong to resist.

2. Indiana Jones always gets my imagination going but like most i just have too many favorites to choose from.

3. I would love Boba fett lurking among my collection there’s something about him.

4. At the last population count 200 and growing.

Thanks for sharing, Kevin! I’m so sorry that you missed the Toy Fair! I hope you will find Captain America and Iron Man soon! ๐Ÿ™‚

admin April 13, 2012 at 5:47 PM

YTjedi, thanks for appreciating the work of our contributors! They do work hard to write interesting and thoughful articles and connect with others in the community. One of the best aspects of this hobby is the friendships we can make. ๐Ÿ™‚

Legodude19 April 13, 2012 at 7:21 PM

Sweet collection!! I don’t collect the collectible series just cause I can’t afford it. But City is cool! I totally know what you mean about not being able to pick a favorite. ๐Ÿ™‚

Legodude19 April 13, 2012 at 7:22 PM

Yah I’ve never bought Ninjago. Thats a long time collecting. I started about 3-4 years ago so I’m a pretty young collector. ๐Ÿ˜€

Legodude19 April 13, 2012 at 7:25 PM

Pretty nice collection Admin! I have to agree Aayla is one of the best!! I like customizing to some extent also. I like messing with changing my clones. ๐Ÿ™‚

Legodude19 April 13, 2012 at 7:29 PM

Don’t you just get sick of battle droids!!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰ . I only have a small number, and I’m already sick of them!! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Those old school figs are pretty nice! I really like the variety in SW figs also.

Legodude19 April 13, 2012 at 7:30 PM

The more I read these comments the more I realize my collection is relatively tiny. ๐Ÿ˜€ I’m really excited about LOTR also!

Legodude19 April 13, 2012 at 7:33 PM

Yah Ackbar is definitely a favorite character from SW! sadly I don’t have is fig :(. Han in carbonite is one of the most ridiculous things ever. in a good way!

Legodude19 April 13, 2012 at 7:34 PM

Thanks for liking the post! It’s my first. ๐Ÿ˜€ I’m looking forward to the pic also

Legodude19 April 13, 2012 at 7:35 PM

Taryn (Ninja of Electronics) April 13, 2012 at 8:26 PM

Taryn (Ninja of Electronics) April 14, 2012 at 2:07 PM

well, its sort of hard to collect with nobody ever giving you lego

Legodude19 April 14, 2012 at 7:19 PM

Yah. I’ve only gotten a few figs for free. You just have to keep diligently saving your money and buying sets. ๐Ÿ™‚ If you want of course. ๐Ÿ˜€

NRG Jay April 15, 2012 at 2:44 PM

I love Ninjago, and own 50 odd figs from that theme. 15 from star wars, and a lot , lot more from various themes. I probably have around 150 or so. I dunno why, but I own a Darth Maul head…. I used it to make one of him!
My most precious is either a Yoda with colored eyes from the AAT, or a Iron Drone from Exo Force.
I have wanted a Boba Fett for 7 years now… I will fortunately get one when I buy the new skiff coming out soon.

ninjago master April 15, 2012 at 5:30 PM

Edward, I’m not clear on what is the point of this list. Are you selling these? Please note that this is not a website for selling LEGO. I would suggest eBay, Bricklink, or Craig’s List. I don’t mind LEGO-fans announcing sales here, making trades etc., but I would suggest that first you at least introduce yourself and make some friends. This is your first comment here and we have no idea if we can even trust you. There are way too many scammers trying to take advantage of LEGO-fans. ๐Ÿ˜

Tobymacboy April 17, 2012 at 6:33 PM

Tobymacboy April 17, 2012 at 7:08 PM

I sooooooooooooooo want to post a pic buuuuuuttt….. I am in the middle of remaking “sw ep 4 : a new hope ” in lego so my lego desk has stopmotion sets built on it but as soon as it is finished 9I

OOOOOOO! You HAVE to upload that video when you finish!! ๐Ÿ˜€

Tydroid April 17, 2012 at 7:24 PM

Lol, I basically LIVE to collect Minifigures! Im gonna try to answer all the questions on the post ๐Ÿ˜‰
1.Ninjago, the minifigs are just greatly printed and interesting!
2.LU astronaut. It always brings me good memories….:)
3.Ninjago’s minifigs are totally good but some are hard to get ahold of!
4.This is unanswerable due to random minifig parts scattered in several boxes(most are assembled though.)

gid617 April 17, 2012 at 8:50 PM

good, becaues it would be hard to build all my minifigs!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

gid617 April 17, 2012 at 8:51 PM

I don’t care about plastic ๐Ÿ˜‰ I have 13 spinners.

gid617 April 17, 2012 at 8:53 PM

Thoue are really cool!! I don’t have so many of the same (any army I could make would be very haphazard) And I don’t have that many minifigures either. I do like to create my own, reather than stick with the orginal minifigues (you can make so really awesome people that way!!)

gid617 April 17, 2012 at 8:55 PM

hans solo carbonite was preetty cool, but I don’tget starwars. My favortie is Ninjago.

gid617 April 17, 2012 at 8:57 PM

Indian Jones was awsome. In fact, it was the first theme I really collected – I normally just get my favorites from every theme – or several themes

gid617 April 17, 2012 at 9:01 PM

Can I ask a different question?

What kind (and how many) lego animaes do you have??
I have pigs, cows, horses, dogs, mice, snakes, spiders, a crocidile, a shark, a monkey from the minifigures series, and several scorpions. I don’t think I have any others (at least not vary many)

Legodude19 April 17, 2012 at 10:00 PM


Legodude19 April 17, 2012 at 10:02 PM

lemme see, mouse, some horses, a think a scorpion, crocs, and sharks. ๐Ÿ™‚

Legodude19 April 17, 2012 at 10:03 PM

Yah Indy was pretty cool. But they discontinued it.

Legomaniac April 18, 2012 at 3:11 AM

After reading the comments i’m so glad that i’m not the only person obsessed with Lego minifigs. i started collecting minifigs when i was a kid and bought the really cheap sets as i only wanted the minifigs…and then somehow i grew out of that phase..but when the minifig series came got me obsessed again and now i’m collecting a whole variety of minifigs.. my favourite has to be the new marvel characters as i’ve always been a die-hard fan of Marvel..
Here’s a photo of my collection

Legodude19 April 18, 2012 at 9:47 AM

I’m glad your back to collecting them!

Maybe Admin can help you with the pic?

admin April 18, 2012 at 12:29 PM

Picture added! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Legodude19 April 18, 2012 at 4:53 PM

very impressive collection!

Legomaniac April 18, 2012 at 7:54 PM

Thanks Legodude..
I’d love to see other people’s collections as well..

gid617 April 18, 2012 at 8:58 PM

I’ll take a photo of mine – when ever I get them all built!

Christoph Bartneck April 18, 2012 at 11:21 PM

I am obsessed with minifigures, but I was able to work around my obsession by focusing on taking photographs o the more than 5000 different figures. It is a bit like hunting for new species in the rain forrest. I then worked on cataloging the Minifigures into a book. Have a look at for the printed catalogs.

gid617 April 19, 2012 at 12:29 PM

My grandpa buys me the minifig series – or I should say us. and I was wrong bout my count – I only have more like 115.

gid617 April 19, 2012 at 12:32 PM

definatly!! unfortuantly I counted al my minifigs and turns out I only have 115 aprox.

admin April 19, 2012 at 1:40 PM

115 minifigs are totally awesome! Nothing unfortunate about that! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Tobymacboy April 20, 2012 at 6:10 PM

I will I will be posting it on may the 4th (official star wars day)

gid617 May 10, 2012 at 12:09 PM

Tobymacboy May 12, 2012 at 8:50 AM

Ok , here are my pictures. There are more Legos than this. I have 1 shoe box full of minifigures (city , batman , ect.) and one full of vehicles and another for vintage vehicles. I also have a display case with 3 NBA minifigures and 3 minifigs I made at the Lego store. Last but not least , I have a series 7 display case that has 4 rare minifigs (1980’s to 2008) and , my fave discontinued theme , POWER MINERS. My fave theme is Star Wars
Fave minifig I have: Battle damaged Anakin (2010) , and Jedi Knight Anakin (2012).
Fave minifig that I DON’T have: Boba Fett with the original combined helment-and-jetpack piece.
Number of minifigures : 147 80% star wars.

admin May 12, 2012 at 9:09 AM

Love your black minifigure display-case on the first picture! Yeah, Power Miners was awesome! Nice use of the metal-bars on the second picture for displaying your minifigs! ๐Ÿ˜€

Tobymacboy May 12, 2012 at 9:19 AM

Thanks! I use it for special minifigs. The r2-d2 in the display case is misprinted. It came from Anakins Jedi Interceptor. And I didn’t have anything else to do with the lego magnets so I put a captioned minifigure and a minifigure of myself on the metal bars. There is a ninja on a magnet on the metal bar not seen in the picture. Like 5000 Bricks and recieve updates at

Legodude19 May 12, 2012 at 9:45 AM

I have that same Boba Fett clock. I was gonna get the DV one for Christmas but when I opened it it didn’t work. Very Nice collection, that emperor’s shuttle looks a lot bigger than I imagined…….

Legodude19 May 12, 2012 at 9:47 AM

and where on earth did you get that grey baseplate? Its massive…….

Lego universe May 12, 2012 at 10:19 AM

Guys anyone know where u can get kai but with classic lego smile cause i really want to make an exact replica of my character on lego universe

Lego universe those were the good times

Tobymacboy May 12, 2012 at 11:48 AM

Toys r us. It cost about $15 i think. My mom bought it for me for easter. OH! and did you pay full price for your boba fett clock ? Kuz i got mine for $4! And the Emperor’s shuttle is very large. It took me about 2 hours to build it Christmas day. It is one of my fave sets.

Tobymacboy May 12, 2012 at 11:52 AM

Just buy Kai in the small ambush set he comes in and you can purchase the classic head on ebay.

Legodude19 May 12, 2012 at 7:44 PM

I think it was full price, but it was a replacement for a christmas gift.

admin May 12, 2012 at 8:31 PM

Yeah, it is sad the LU is gone! As far as your LU character, why don’t you just get a head with the classic smile and put it on a Kai minifig. Classic smile heads are readily available. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Secret Sasuto June 9, 2012 at 1:33 AM

2.Kai ZX
3.Um…I want…. THE GREEN NINJA!!!
4.I think i’m very weak on lego-i have around 9 minifigs and i don’t know where are the 5.So i have…4

pythin June 13, 2012 at 10:53 PM

Admin, I see you watch starwars the clonewars because of the custom minifigure on picture #1 on the right hand side at the very end.

pythin June 13, 2012 at 10:59 PM


#2.Watto from “Watto’s Junkyard

#3.Poggle the Lesser (custom)

#4.Around 300

admin June 14, 2012 at 8:35 AM

Pythin, I’m a huge Star Wars fan, but please note this article was not written by me, nor are the pictures mine. ๐Ÿ˜‰
I do not collect SW minifigs as I’m afraid I would go broke. I do have a few I just couldn’t resist, but in general I try to stay away from them. ๐Ÿ™

Legodude19 June 14, 2012 at 9:21 AM

I was wondering, you mentioned having a few star wars minifigs that you couldn’t resist. Which are they?

Legodude19 June 14, 2012 at 9:28 AM

hmmmm, which one are you talking about? The only minifig I’ve ever gotten outside of a LEGO product was the Mace Windu one. Is that the one you are talking about? I don’t think he is a custom ( even though his head stud doesn’t have that little grey patch most minifigs have and I don’t know why ) he was bought third party. I think its the same minifig that came with that republic assault ship thing from a couple years back.

btw, I do watch the Clone Wars, and believe me they are great!

admin June 14, 2012 at 12:02 PM

Ahem… I actually just counted my Star Wars minifigs, and I have exactly 50. I mean the ones I haven’t taken apart. I guess I’m addicted already. Seriously; I have no idea how they sneaked into my house! I thought I only had a few. Resistance is futile! ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

But my favorites are the female Jedi; particularly Aayla Secura, Ahsoka and Shaak Ti. And I’m definitely getting that female dancer from Jabba’s palace (forgot her name). I also like Stormtroopers and clone-troopers, so I have quite a few of those. And I love the Endor camo rebels! I don’t really use them for Star Wars though, but as Marines. In fact that is something I often do; use SW torsos and other parts for my other minifigs. Like I love all the Jedi robes and have tons of those because they are very useful for peasants in pretty much any setting. And I use the black Sith robes for my ninja. 8)

Legodude19 June 14, 2012 at 6:00 PM

WOW. They really are devious are they not?? I think her name is Oola btw. Have you ever taken shaak-ti or Ashoka’s head pieces and used them on an egyptian? hahahahaha

admin June 14, 2012 at 9:21 PM

Oh, yes! In fact I have a whole Egyptian army using Ahsoka’s and Nute Gunray’s headgear! I painted them of course. They look sweet! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Legodude19 June 14, 2012 at 10:01 PM

dang. ๐Ÿ˜€

admin June 14, 2012 at 10:15 PM

What? You use them that way too? ๐Ÿ™‚

Legodude19 June 14, 2012 at 10:20 PM

no. ๐Ÿ™‚ just didn’t you actually did when I asked thats all. ๐Ÿ™‚

Legoboy June 18, 2012 at 2:26 PM

I play with mine (I’m 15 k?) I got over 200 and I collected them when I was 3 stopped at about 15 and in 2009 I got the clone battle pack, this kid in front of me got the Chrome Darth Vader if I remember, rushing home thinking I would get one, never got one, I almost cried… Since then in 3 years I have brought over 180 figures ๐Ÿ˜€

2 I will do anything for the following: Chrome C3-po,Chrome Darth or even the shiny Stormy, the prices for these are disgusting, they’re supposed to be played with not sold for over ยฃ100!

3 Either my Emperors Guard, Darth Vader or maybe even my Batman

Legodude19 June 18, 2012 at 2:29 PM

Glad to hear you are a dedicated TFOL. ๐Ÿ™‚ Did you say you actually stopped collecting????? :O

Legoboy June 19, 2012 at 5:19 PM

Yes, I stopped when I was 5, I put in 15 by accident XD then got back when I was 12…

Good news everyone! Buying the TC-14 next month using all my pocket money, mom and dad are not happy paying that much for a plastic toy ๐Ÿ˜›

admin June 19, 2012 at 8:16 PM

Awesome! I think you will be happy with it! It is a super special minifig! ๐Ÿ™‚

Legoboy June 20, 2012 at 5:58 AM

Thanks, question, do you think it will go up in price like the chrome C3-PO did?

Legodude19 June 20, 2012 at 7:29 AM

Glad to hear you still collect. ๐Ÿ™‚

nace10 July 13, 2012 at 12:36 PM
