This week LEGO officially announced the availability of Custom Minifigure Series 16 on their Facebook page. The problem is, of course, that these figures were available starting last week at some retailers including the LEGO Brand stores, like the one I got mine from last weekend.
Regardless, if you hadn’t seen them, they are out there now at LEGO Brand stores and other participating retailers (Toys ‘R’ Us, Target etc).
This set has been a strange one for LEGO – not only was it available early, but it was fully leaked a long time ago. The rumors are that the release was moved up from September to make room for another release of the Disney set we saw earlier this summer.
