On May 1st, Disney and LEGO officially released their fantastic assortment of highly anticipated blind bag Minifigures- featuring 18 classic Disney/Pixar characters to collect and trade! Though these have been showing up early at Target stores for a couple weeks now, they are now widely available at "all major toy retailers" and retail for $3.99 each (to help you track them down, I included a picture of the bar code/item number below).
Of course I was just interested in getting the Pixar characters. I'm happy to say that I had some great luck yesterday as I pulled Mr. Incredible AND Syndrome! These were the two I was most excited about.
Here are they are fresh out of the bags. Syndrome was relatively easy to pick out, since his hair is such a unique shape and size. Getting Mr. Incredible was mostly luck (but he is the only other one that comes with a tile piece, so it felt right).
This checklist also comes with each blind bag figure. The next ones I'm looking to grab are Buzz and the Alien.
Let's take a closer look at these "incredible" Minifigures all assembled!
These are both so cool! I love how each one feels like a collector's piece with the included black display stands and unique accessories. Mr. Incredible's "Doing Our Part" poster (as seen in his home office in the film) as well as Syndrome's Omnidroid schematics are both great details.
I would love full LEGO sets based on The Incredibles. These make me wonder why that never happened! Maybe I'll get my wish with the sequel in a few years.
Again, you can find these at general toy stores now. You can also pick them up at the LEGO store (online HERE), Disney Parks or the DisneyStore.com. Good luck on the hunt and have a blast!
