The hunt for Collectible Minifigures Series 10 is full on all over the world. Especially for the elusive Mr. Gold (see previous discussions at the end of this post). One thing I didn’t mention previously is that if you buy your Series 10 Minifigures online you will also get an awesome poster of all the Collectible Minifigures from Series 1-10! 🙂
In celebration of the LEGO Minifigures Series 10 launch, this amazing, full-color poster displays all of the LEGO Minifigures characters which have been released in Series 1-10. Poster also includes a special call out for the LEGO Minifigures Character Encyclopedia produced and published by DK Books. Features a full-color design of LEGO Minifigures Series 1-10, poster measures 19” (48cm) x 27” (69cm), and comes folded.

Thanks to LEGO fan-site Toys-N-Bricks I can also show you a picture of the poster itself. I think it is pretty awesome for anyone who collects these minifigures. It is a bit disappointing that the minifigures are not in order according to what series they appeared in, but it still looks great! Just look at all those awesome little guys! (Click image for larger view.)
One thing to note is that the poster does include Mr. Gold. A lot of minifigure collectors who haven’t found Mr. Gold (and don’t have hundreds of dollars to buy one) have been consoling themselves by saying that Mr. Gold is really not part of the customary 16 minifigures per series, but an extra, promotional minifig. So even if they don’t get one, their series is considered complete – so they want to believe.
I do symphatize with collectors and I understand their dilemma and their reasoning. But then comes a poster like this with a grinning Mr. Gold in the corner just to remind us how cool he is in his elusive shiny awesomeness, and yes, he is in fact part of the series, thank you very much, and no he is not easy to locate. What can I say… I’m glad I don’t collect these minifigures and only buy the ones I like. 🙄
What do you think? How do you like the LEGO Collectible Minifigure poster? Did you get one yet? And what do you think about Mr. Gold being included with the other minifigures? Feel free to share your thoughts and discuss in the comment section below! 😉

I’m glad you posted a picture of the poster. I had just thought about it the other day when I ordered the character encyclopedia. Can you get the poster at the LEGO store? or is it online only?
Found the answer. So I want the poster I need to order 5 minifig from LEGO Shop. Time to check shipping on figs and see if I want to make a big online order and cancel my LEGO Store trip I had planned for the end of the week.
Is the poster available in store? That would be the way to go. I don’t want to risk it get trashed in the mail. :-/
I just got the Encyclopedia, and that was my first though, “I really wish there was a poster showing ALL the figure in one place.”
And now there is! I really must get this…
Eric, the poster is only available with online orders. At least that’s what LEGO is saying on their website.
Chris, sorry for not responding right away. I’m out of town and my connection to the Internet is very sporadic. I’m glad you figured it out! 🙂
Lego ran this promotion online only because they knew that if you didn’t get the figs you wanted you would drive to your local lego store and buy the ones you didn’t get and give them more money.
I will not be buying 5 minifigures online because:1.You can’t feel them2.I don’t want to pay shipping.
Last week I went to my local lego store and asked the best minifigure feeler there to feel my some minifigures and he said I’m sorry but Lego isn’t allowing us to feel out minifigures for ourselves or our customers. So this is bad news for people that aren’t good at feeling the cmfs.
They might not allow them to feel the minifigures because of Mr Gold. Everyone would want them to find a MR Gold. Some to collect him others to resell him.
I wouldn’t drive to the LEGO store just for minifigs. There’s too many department stores between here and there that carry them. This just means next time I order from LEGO online I’ll get one less small set and get mini figs instead. Plus I won’t buy figs in store until my shipment arrives.
Cool. Since I love airsoft and paintball, I especially like the Paintball Player minifig. Hopefully I’ll get a fully metal m4 airsoft gun soon. Lego should make a airsoft player as well.
I don’t think Lego’s going to get that involved in guns.
I agree Cole ZX. Still, it was just a thought.
How do you get the poster? I don’t see it as an option on the LEGO store website when I try to purchase 5 series 10 minifigures…. is there a promo code? Thx!
I’m out of town at the moment and can’t check for you, but as far as I remember it just says that one will automatically be included with your order of 5 minifigs. Are you in the USA? I think it was only valid in the USA and Canada. If you go to the LEGO Shop homepage, there should be a link right there for the promo details. Or you can also just call and ask to make sure. Sorry I can’t help more right now, I’m not on my regular computer to check all the details.
To make a mini version of the poster, right click on the poster and click ‘copy. Then pull up Microsoft word office, then paste and print it.
Yep, that works too! 😀
The Lego Minifigure poster contains two errors. They have included a Bumblebee Boy and a Purple Decorator. Actual Minifigures that are missing are the Swimming Champion (Series 7) and the Roller Derby Girl (Series 9). Anyone else spot this?
Interesting! Good eyes! 😀
