Build a Minifig at LEGO stores

Recommended Posts

So last time I was at the LEGO store I noticed the build a Minifig display. 3 for $9.99. I just glanced for a second (was on another mission, PAB) but it looked like you can make some interesting Minifigs. I might have to take the time next time I go.

For a little over $3.00 per Minifig, it doesn't seem too bad a way to go.

Has anyone here built any cool Minifigs this way?

Ya,you can find lots of CMF parts in there too. The lady told me they never have a complete CMF, but I was able to make a S2 baseball player, just without the bat. Saw several other cool elements as well.

I got Doc and Marty from BTTF just missing the heads... Not bad considering they're from a cuusoo set.

Some parts are pretty rare while most are commun. Ask the employees if the know about it. My store has knowledgeable employees that knows what parts are a must get (like only availlable in big sets and the likes).

the stores near me have had the same pieces in their build a mini for like 2 years now, nothing really interesting either, all city and a very few older CMF's all of which at this point ive gotten plenty of. Is there something I dont know, is there more in the back?

I usually try to do at least one while I'm at a store (and PAB cup of course). I've built some interesting figures, but usually I just buy hats/hairs or accessories. Depending on the store, some will allow you to get 15 pieces as opposed to 3 full figures ( hat/hair, head, torso, legs, accessory).

I haven't been to a store in almost a year now, yikes!

I haven't been to the Lego store yet, is it possible to just buy a whole bunch of heads with different expressions on them?

or do you have to build an actual full figure?

You should ask the employees, but I've been to a couple Lego stores that will just let you pick out any 15 parts. It's quite handy if your local store has nifty parts and you don't feel like doing a little Bricklinking.
