2012 Olympic Games Collectible Minifigure Line

Recommended Posts

The 2012 Summer Olympics are approaching, and it appears that LEGO has been preparing. In honor of the Great Britain Olympic team, LEGO is releasing a special edition Lego Minifigure line-up representing nine different British athletes. While the minifigures will be available exclusively in the UK, I recommend you check out the images <a href='http://www.brickset.com/news/article/?ID=2991' target='offsite'>here</a>.

In case people want to see pictures, there is only one really, but it's official.lego-2012-olympic-team-gb-minifigures-02.jpgPersonally my favorite is the equestrian, because for one, I'm an equestrian, and two, I love the leg printing.

Why did you copy the picture from the linked article into this topic?-Ced
It's not the same. It's actually larger, showing the minifigures in more detail.

My boss is going to be in the UK in June, so I might get a couple if he goes to pick 'em up.Still deciding what to get if he does.

I think it's safe to say that if there's a Lego figure of yourself (or at least one based on you/your teammates), your life thus far has been a success.

Looks cool, but will we be getting any U.S. minifigs?

Potentially, next time the Olympics are held in the U.S., which hasn't been planned so far.

I'd say try to get one of each, because this is the smallest series yet, with only 9 figures instead of the regular 16.

You might want to remove the name of the site. You generally aren't allowed to mention sites with forums on BZP.There's a chance that these might be available for a price very close to the MSRP on Amazon.co.uk.

These look very cool. But even if they were sold in the US, I probably wouldn't get them.

An exclusive? For the UK?HALLELUJAHAhem.I will have to buy these, possibly just so I can shove it in the faces of all those people who have bought Target-exclusives of everything over the years. Or I could just go 'I don't need to buy all of these...' just to torment the completists who must have everything.I kid, I kid :P But I will probably get some.
