This month saw the launch of the 14th series of the highly collectible Lego Mini Figures (minifig). With each series, you get 16 unique figures following a specific theme, with the last one being the second series of the Simpsons minifig line. The figures are sold through stand up boxes containing 60 mini figures each, where there will be at least 3 of each mini figure in each box. The remainder 12 are randomized with some common ones having up to 5 pieces per box. Each mini figure retails in blind packs at $4.90 on launch and usually cost alot more after the limited series had been sold-out/no longer in production.
Series 14 is identifiable by their black packaging, if you can have a go at feeling the blind packs before buying, here are tips and unique identifiers of how to bag the mini-figure you are looking for to complete your Series 14 collection. Do note that bump codes (i.e. unique identification dots at the base of the pack) does not work for the packs sold in the SEA region and Singapore at least. Bump codes used to be clearer for the earlier series but are much harder and unreliable to read now.
