Blue vs. Orange
Lego is back with an all new release of their Collectible Minifigures theme. There are a total of sixteen unique Minifigs in the Lego Collectible Minifigures Series 12.
With a recent departure to do some spinoff (The Lego Movie, and The Simpsons) it is good to see Lego pick up where they left off. These new figures will be available in October, although if you are lucky you may find them in stores now. This new series is by far the most detailed, with a whole lot of fancy new sculpts and printing. The only bad news is that Lego has carried over the higher price point that was first used in The Simpsons, $3.99. This feels like the maximum price Lego can sell these for.
One new thing about this release is that every figure comes with a code to activate itself on Lego Minifigures Online.
A super detailed review of each figure has been posted by WhiteFang over on Eurobricks. These reviews have earned their reputation for greatness. You cannot find a better review anywhere. In each box of Series 12 you will find 3 complete sets of Minifigures. Lego seems to be doing a better job of choosing which ones are the most wanted. With the most common being: Video Game Guy (5), Space Miner (5), and Swashbuckler (5). The uncommon Minifigs are: Wizard (4), Battle Goddess (4), Dino Tracker (4), Pizza Delivery Guy (4), Rock Star (4), and Piggy Guy (4). Finally, the rare figures are: Hun Warrior (3), Fairytale Princess (3), Lifeguard (3), Prospector (3), Jester (3), Genie Girl (3), and Spooky Girl (3). The biggest surprise here is that the Princess is a rare figure, with the recent popularity of the Disney Princess Lego theme it doesn’t make sense.
The best thing about these figures is that everyone has a different favorite. As for me, I will spend my time looking for a Gamer (and maybe a Wizard).

This is the first complete set photo for the upcoming Lego Collectible Minifigures Series 12. After taking a break from the standard format (The Lego Movie, The Simpsons) Lego is back with an incredibly strong line up. Lego has this down to a science at this point. A few historical figures, a few modern characters, a few sci-fi minifigs, and one person in an animal suit.
It looks like there is a Gamer, Prospector, Rocker, Swashbuckler, Jester, Princess with a Frog, Goth, Pizza Deliver Man, Hun Warrior, Genie, Lifeguard, Wizard (Merlin?), Hunter (Lara Croft?), Space Miner, Athena, and a man in a Pig Suit (maybe one of the Griswolds from a Pig in a Poke?)
There are rumblings that the recent price increase with the Simpsons set will be made permanent. Meaning that the Lego Minifigures Series 12 will probably retail around $3.99 each.
