See where LEGO minifigure Mr. Gold is found!

by admin on May 5, 2013

in LEGO Minifigures

The map to track the LEGO Collectible Minifigs Series 10 Mr. Gold is now up and running on LEGO’s website. As you know, only 5000 fully gold-chromed Mr. Gold minifigures have been released. Each of them are individually numbered, and those lucky people who find them can enter the unique code found in Mr. Gold’s packet on LEGO’s website (see map here).

LEGO Minifigure Series Mr. Gold

As of this writing out of the 5000 LEGO Mr. Gold minifigures 66 have been found (according to the map – I’m sure a lot of people don’t even report them). One of those is our own contributor William, who just told me he has found one after going through several full boxes. William is wickedly fast and accurate at identifying each minifigure due to being legally blind, which makes his other senses much more developed - clearly giving him an advantage. (See William’s article: Guide to Feeling LEGO Minifigs Series 10) Congratulations, William! :P

LEGO Mr. Gold Map

If you would like to try your luck finding your own LEGO Mr. Gold minifigure they are now officially released and should be available at all LEGO stores, Toys’R’Us stores, Target, Wal-Mart, and wherever else the Collectible Minifigure Series are regularly carried.

LEGO Collectible Minifigs Series 10 is also available at the Online LEGO Shop. The disadvantage of buying online is that you can’t feel the bags, however there is also a significant advantage; it is unlikely that employees and other people who are out hunting for Mr. Gold have gone through the bags already, leaving you with a lot more chance of finding one. :cool:

And of course besides the elusive Mr. Gold, this series is full of wonderful minifigures. So even if you don’t find Mr. Gold you can still collect a full series of these awesome minifigs, or just get the ones you like the most.

or is it “Me and my Dad”?

also… 3rd attempted message: when u look for a certain kind of lego minifig, look at the box, or package and see what it has that is unique, then close your eyes and feel for it. (always helps me, i now have all the robots, cyborgs, and space guys since series 6, also the biohazard fella)

Reply

admin May 14, 2013 at 9:15 PM

That’s actually a really good suggestion. I have never tried closing my eyes when feeling for the minfigs, but I have used the technique before with other things. I’m going to try it next time with minifigs too! Thanks for the idea! :D

Bohrok Tru May 14, 2013 at 9:51 PM

so… i dont suppose i get a free Mr. Gold? =P
Also when u close ur eyes, make sure you have a good picture of the specific piece in ur head, or else your just sitting among a pile of gold lego bags with your eyes closed =)
P.S. when I get back from hunting sunday night i will relay the results, also will the lego/walmart/target people kick me out if i ask if they can bring me a fresh box?

Reply

admin May 15, 2013 at 3:21 PM

LOL! and LOL! Love your humor! I think asking for a fresh box is reasonable if the box that is displayed is close to being empty. However if the box on display is still full, or almost full, it is unlikely they will get you a new box.

Reply

Bohrok Tru May 15, 2013 at 8:42 PM

*stuffs all bags behind other boxes* Exscuse me Ma’am, this one is empty *halo hovering over head*
lol, thank for the help, first time ive done this, i hope im not too shy to ak the person for a new unopened box =/
P.S. i have a rlly old Chrome-Gold lego minifig helmet-crown, got it at an old garage sale along with 2nd generation bionicle (gloating btw) anyways, is it worth much? (its actually kinda more shiny and brighter gold than Fredrick)

Reply

admin May 15, 2013 at 10:43 PM

I actually have a friend who does that with the minifigs… :roll:
As far as the gold-chrome crown, it is very common. Worth about 50 cents: http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=71015

Bohrok Tru May 16, 2013 at 12:18 PM

umm…. I’m REAAALLLYYY hoping im not the only one here who can recite Bionicle history/names/weapons in order from the 1st gen to where it ended….. im not alone in my pitiful Bionicle-nerdyness, right?
cant wait for saturday…

This is crazy! I’ve been to at least 18 stores looking for Mr. Gold, feeling hundreds of bags. Then I realized only 5 have been found in my entire state of North Carolina. I’m very upset at Lego for doing this, is anyone else? Our only chance of getting one for sure seems to be eBay for $500!

Here’s a map of my quest for Mr. Gold:

Can anyone else find Mr. Gold without spending a fortune on eBay? lol!

Andy, yeah, he is out there! I have gotten several private emails and also people have been sharing here in the comments they have foudn one. According to the BrickShow, one guy even found two! :mrgreen:

hellooo Mr/Mrs/Ms admin!!
I have a few questions, 1: when I look at Fredricks staff/sceptre, at the lightsaber hilt, where the blade would come out, on alotta pictures it is gold/yellowish, and on alot of them it is typical lightsaber grey, I’m like, whats with that?
So if you would be so kind as to explain to my lil mind whats going on, I would be very happy!!

P.S. sick for 2 weeks, starting up hunting again this sunday.

admin June 2, 2013 at 9:31 AM

My guess is that you were looking at customs. There are several customizers selling their own versions of Mr. Gold on eBay. Some of them look very-very close to the real thing, so be watchful. The “real” Frederick has a gold chromed ligth-saber. The chrome is on top of regular pearl-gold and you can see that at the hilt. ;)

Reply

Bohrok Tru June 5, 2013 at 6:54 PM

THANKYOUSOVERYMUCH, you just saved me 200$, i was almost about to buy that Imposter! I should have known that Fredrick only has gold or chrome, no grey, tyvm.

P.S. week 3 is almost over, havent gotten one yet, I will, I will, and when I do, there will be ONE MORE IN OREGON!! Dont give up Fredrick-hunters!!!

What’s somewhat unfortunate is that I’ve found that some people rip open the Minifigure bags (once in a while when I find a box of Minifigures) and steal the minifig and its accessories while leaving behind the stand and the directions/checklist. I get a little vexed that people steal those. :mad: It’s just not right.

Reply

admin June 12, 2013 at 10:39 AM

Haven’t seen that here – those baggies are actually pretty hard to open and would require scissors or something – but I did see the problem with the DK books that include a special minifig. Those are easy to just pop out. Sad. :(

Reply

Meneldur son of Garamar June 12, 2013 at 2:18 PM

That’s true and people probably might be inclined to do that with the new Ninjago book out. It has Lloyd in his green ninja outfit. I’m not exactly sure if it’s considered his kimono garb or what, but I do know he only comes in that encyclopedia and many LEGO fans don’t have him….thus people might be more likely to try and steal him. I know I wouldn’t though. My conscience would bother me and it would make the play/MOCing experience very unpleasant. I’d much rather get him the right way.

Reply

admin June 12, 2013 at 2:49 PM

Yeah, I agree. No need to spoil the LEGO hobby with shady practices. :|

Reply

Bohrok Tru June 13, 2013 at 3:37 PM

erm…. if you take a baggie by its lil hole on the top, and pull, the bag opens right up….. I just know this cuz thats how I open mine =P
But yea, ive run into several with like, stuff taken out. In one box , 5 bags were opened, but all the minifigs were left…. its sad, it just a peice of plastic, no need to like steal/cheat to try and get one -.-

(but an epic piece of plastic called Fredrick)

Reply

admin June 13, 2013 at 8:29 PM

Very clever. I should give that a try. Never attempted to open the baggies that way. I will try it next time I get one. :P

Bohrok Tru July 9, 2013 at 3:36 PM

TYVM, if I dont try, I’ll never get one. Stores 41 and 42 held no Fredrick, Lotsa Skydivers and Clowns, not many Bumblebees My fingers are soo sore…. at my local Fred Meyers, Mr. Gold boxes are almost out tho, I hope they buy new ones.

PS. A reaaalllyy mean trick was played on me…..Someone had stuck everything from “Mr Good annd evil” in a gold package, and stuck in in the far back of the box…. I felt the hat and went crazy -.-…. I dont know how that person got it in there, I didnt see any glue/tape.. Not entirely legal.. but I got my cash back.
the moral of this: Dont go crazy with the hat. Feel for every unique piece.

I think that LEGO should’ve had this find Mr. Gold contest and maybe award you something (not sure what).

But then allow the rest of us to get a Mr. Gold in series 11. This way there wouldn’t be professionals grabbing them all up and jacking up the prices. I’ve been collecting LEGO on and off for about 20 years now and feel cheated by this Mr. Gold figure. I have over 500 sets and was a member for years (I used to get a set mailed to me on my birthday even when I was in college.)

Patrick, yes, a lot of people feel like you do and have voiced their opinions on various LEGO forums and blogs. And probably also to LEGO directly. You can contact them with your concers directly if you like. They are usually very good at listening to feedback from customers and long-time LEGO fans. The more people report their concerns the better. This is true with Mr. Gold as well as quality of parts, sets, instructions, etc. They do listen and make changes accordingly to the best of their ability. So it is always worth it to let them know what you think. :)

My 8 year old son was lucky enough to buy a mr gold today. He threw away the wrapping in a bucket outside the morrisons we bought it from. He was delighted with his mr gold. We had no idea that they were selling for solo much money. We went back to the bucket and found the wrapper and paper inside so now have the complete packaging. We stay in Edinburgh, Scotland. We hope this is the first Scottish mr gold……hooray.

admin August 1, 2013 at 9:19 PM

Nice! You can check on the map if there are any other Mr. Golds in Scotland! Have fun with your shiny guy! :D

I think I have failed in my 3 1/2 month mission… I didnt find Friedrick…. 51 stores have been raided unsucessfully…. oh woe is me…
OWELL! back to saving up money until I can buy a Mr. Gold

P.S. I have only given up because none of the stores i can reach have seiries 10 boxes anymore.
