  1. This is precious! I’m glad the old timers are welcoming the new guys (and not getting all jealous about it). Happy trails! Can’t wait to see all the new photo ops the new collectibles will bring.

    Ah, I haven’t seen those packets so I wasn’t sure what you were talking about. I can see how it would drive you crazy trying to find one of each minifig!! Is LEGO being deliberately perverse?!! 😉

  9. Something I’ve noticed about the caption; “open” is in the present tense while “gazed” is in another tense. Why is that?

  11. Great Shot Mr Phelps! You Always provide me a daily chuckle.. Thank you.

    I just completed Series 4 last night with the ever elusive Crazy Scientist. So Series 2-4 are now complete. Sadly I didn’t even know about Series 1 until it was long gone.. However I have managed to find some of Series 1, but Still don’t have the Zombie(My favorite LOL)

  12. I didn’t know about Series 1 either. I got a handful of 2, and most of 3, and now all of 4.

    I’d love a zombie! Because zombies are awesome. Closest I can do is the mummy and the frankenstein.

    • Dan,

      Yes, there is something morbidly lovable about a Lego Zombie.:-) I just haven’t gotten desperate enough to pay $14 on Ebay yet to buy one. Its insane LOL..

      What are you missing from Series 3? Let me know..


      May 5, 2011 at 12:39 am

  13. I dont even think series 1was even produced in the US, so you probably have to get them off amazon or ebay…. (i know i saw them on ebay once)

    • @Luke_G: Do you have an account on Brickipedia?

      May 4, 2011 at 10:33 pm

      • I do not. Should I?

        May 4, 2011 at 11:02 pm

        • You don’t have to, however, you I thought you might want to use it to see upcoming sets. There’s even pictures of series six minifigures!

          May 6, 2011 at 3:30 am
