LEGO 71012 COLLECTIBLE MINIFIGURE DISNEY SERIES BOX DISTRIBUTION
You have by now heard the news, and if not, well you must be a Warner Brothers Fan, so good riddance. And if you are a Disney fan but haven’t heard the news, LEGO and Disney are realizing a series of minifigures.
Are you done hyperventilating yet? good. Now on to the important things….
May 3nd. Thats your date. Yes, I know its really the first but you don’t really want to be out there with everyone else, so do us all a favor and wait till the 3rd.
And here’s the good news: each box has 3 sets, plus a few extras to give to your friends (you know those LEGO guys next door).
Last night at Comic-Con’s preview night, The latest LEGO CUUSOO set Back to the Future went on sale. Along with it came the official announcement posted on the CUUSOO site. If that’s not enough information for you. The brothers over at The Brother’s Brick got a preview copy to review. which is informative, and provides some otherwise unpublished published pictures.
I could take some time and type a whole raft of comments and notes about what I can see in the set, but instead I think I’d be better off limiting it to what I see as the major points and then letting you look through the pictures, and watch the Video for yourself.

If you or your kidlets are any sort of LEGO fan, you’ve likely heard about the Special Promotional “Mr Gold” Minifig being released as part Series 10, and just in case you haven’t heard, here’s the scoop:
As a celebration of the LEGO Minifigures 10th series release, LEGO is adding a 17th figure to this run, a figure, called “Mr Gold”. unlike all of the other series Mr Gold is extremely rare, there are only 5,000, these 5,000 figures will be randomly inserted into cases of series 10 Minifigures, so that not even every box will have one. Finding him will be require a whole lot of luck effort, doggedness, and good timing.
If your one of those who wants one of them all, I wish you luck, and if you are ready to start you search, you can begin now at Smith’s Market place stores. Not scheduled to be released until May 1st Smiths market place as jumped the gun.
See all of the series 10 minifigures on the LEGO mini-figure website.

All credit goes to "Sven" on moc-pages.com for the design. I reversed engineered it from a few pictures he posted. His model is quite faithful to trucks used by UPS that were made by International Harvester Company. I made a few minor changes. I had to make one eventually since I drive a brown truck for a living. Needs mirrors, is missing a few brown headlight bricks, and I have a plan to limit the "stamp" effect. Stickers are wrong scale, but oh well. I’m not sure if those brown tubes I used on the back are real Lego, just found them in a parts bin. …
Hey! I bought this on impulse a couple of weeks ago but I’m now trying to sell it because I need the money. Is there anyone interested in buying it. It’s brand new and unopened. I was going to sell it on Ebay but I just want to check here first to see if anyone is interested. It’s sold out in the stores at the moment, so this could be a great opportunity if you’re trying to buy one. I paid around $860 for it, with tax included, so I’m not willing to sell it for less than that. I will simply sell it to whomever is willing to pay the most.
As I am sure many of us have Lego ornaments on Christmas trees this time of year, please share a pic of one of your favorites that you have hanging this year – any design, MOC, designed by Lego, Chris McVeigh, etc. I’d love to see what people have. …
