London Olympics & Paralympics 2012... and LEGO
Posted 02 April 2012 - 05:07 PM
And to kick things off, I have heard a rumour; there may be a special sporting minifig set available at all UK brand stores. I wonder if they would be new figs or just a collection of existing sports ones. Customised "London 2012" ones would be ace.

While I dont remember the Los Angeles Olympics (I was 4 years old at the time) my wife and I visited her mom in Vancouver when the 2010 Winter Olympics were there. We were far enough from the crowds it wasnt too bad. But trying to get to see the Olympic fire is just tiresome.
We waited over an hour to get into the Hudson Bay flagship store. The main licensed retailer for official Olympic Merch. The most popular item was the red Canada soft shell jacket. They were literally flying of the racks. the store employees would secretly bring out a batch every so often. They would also stealthily ask if you want one to random people. If you asked for it, you get the generic answer; "Sorry, we are all out. We are getting more soon"

I wouldn't be surprised if they re-use existing parts as much as they can. But I hope the bodies have specially printed Olympic outfits.

This would be a great set of figures for just populating someone's LEGO city...
