Most of us barely finished collecting the LEGO Collectible Minifigs in Series 9, and Series 10 has already been spotted. Well, so far only in Hungary, where several LEGO fans were lucky enough to pick up some Series 10 minifigures early. 🙂
So far no report on finding one of the 5,000 golden minifigs that is randomly inserted into boxes around the world. It is still not clear if the golden minifigure is chrome gold, pearl gold, or metallic gold. Some sources say he is fully chromed, but since nobody had actually photographed one yet, doubts remain. Pictures of him appear more pearl gold or metallic gold. (Pearl gold is a molded color, whereas metallic gold is basically spray-paint – LEGO has been using both versions of gold in the past).
The above picture is from the leaflet inside the packaging – showing off Mr. Gold on one side, and at the back of the leaflet there is a picture of each of the regular 16 minifigures in the series to help you in collecting them. (Photo courtesy of Kockamania.)
As we discussed before in this series of Collectible Minifigures, we have the Librarian, Medusa, Roman Officer, Warrior Woman, Tomahawk Warrior, Skydiver, Bumblebee Girl, Grandpa, Paintball Player, Sea Captain, Sad Clown, Revolution Soldier, Baseball Player, Trendsetter Girl, Painter, and Motorcycle Mechanic. You can read more about them at LEGO Collectible Minifigures Series 10 Revealed!
And this is a picture of the packing. As you can see it is deliciously gold to remind you there might be a golden minifigure inside. 🙄
Collectible Minifigures Series 10 should be available in a couple of months, but as you can see some markets have been receiving them early. If you can’t wait to start collecting yours, they are already showing up on eBay and Bricklink, so keep an eye out for them.
