Misc

 

I saw this collection over on ebay this morning and I decided to pull up all of my links and add these to the price guide.     I have been collecting links of these over the past 2 years since I am pretty sure that I am not going to be able to add any of these to my collection. due to how expensive that they are.

I have found about 51 of these so far and I believe that I may still be missing a few.  But not too many.

Based on the price and the rarity of these, I am just going to make a virtual collection of these.    I will continue to look for more of these and add them as I find the.    Click on one of the links below to see the full collection.

Lego TT Games Acrylic Minifigure Trophy Complete List

http://www.minifigpriceguide.com/TTGAMES.0.html

These special Minifigure bricks are created by TT Games to mark the end of the development cycle for each of their Lego Video Games.    Each of the bricks features a Title, The Lego Logo, A place for the minifigure to stand, The game that it is commemorating and the release date.  It also appears that the bricks are able to be stacked on top of each other as you can see in the pictures.

According to Brickset, in an article published last year…

These acrylic bricks are only given to employees of TT Games if they have made a significant contribution to the production of one of their published LEGO titles

In that same article, it spoke about Fairy Bricks raffling one of these off for charity.   I believe that this went for a crazy price here.  $1069.00.  WOW!

This block was raffled off for charity by Fairy Bricks

I have not seen one of these up close, but as far as I can tell, the minifigure is inside of the trophy and is not able to be takes out.  You can see for yourself in the images and video below.  In the video it is pretty clear that the figure is sealed, and I assume that it is like this in all of the trophy’s.

Here is a listing on eBay that has some detailed pictures of a Captain Rex Trophy which I have included below to show the full picture around one of these figures.

Here is a video of that figure as well, and it definitely looks like it is stuck inside the trophy.

Here are a few of the other links that I found on eBay.

This is a collection for 12K pounds.  It is a pretty big collection, but it may be a little bit too expensive.  This is probably a programmer’s collection fro TT Games.

You can also see a relatively large collection of these over here from the TT Games office.

Here is a pic from Flickr as well of another collection.   This is from Carl Greatrix Flickr Account.  Carl Greatrix is a Senior Model Designer at TT and a good friend of Fairy Bricks.  From his Flickr page, he states that he posted these to promote Fairy Bricks.

Unique bricks only supplied to those of us involved on the game projects, so needless to say quite highly coveted. These are the 10 I’ve had so far (more on the way!).The reason for posting these up, is to try and promote a charity auction for Fairy Bricks. These guys do a superb job of gaining as much money as possible , purchasing LEGO and then giving it to childrens hospitals. A very worthy cause. TT have very kindly supplied a game brick (which are impossible to get hold of) purposely for the intention of auctioning it off via Fairy Bricks. With Flickrs rules and regs I’m not sure I can link to either the “well known internet auction site” or even FairyBricks chairty site, so if you search I’m sure you will find it.  PLEASE, try and spread the word with this on all media sites and lets see if we can get these guys some good funding.  Cheers.

They sound like a really good cause.

Here is a recent picture from Arthur Parson’s Twitter page.  They look pretty nice.  I think that I see 5 more that I have not added to the price guide yet.  🙂

See http://www.minifigpriceguide.com/Top100LegoMinifigures.html

According to the press release, Mega Bloks will be producing TMNT starting in 2016.  FOr those of you that remember, Mega Bloks had this license a few years back and they produced some pretty nice sets.  I do have a copy of all of their minifigures and I will post them here later.

Here is a copy of the Press Release below.

LEGO 19″ Display Figure Brand New in the Box. I always wondered where these came from

This post and site may contain Affiliate links.

 

 

A few of these have surfaced in the past on Ebay and I have always wondered where they come from and how people get them.  I know that they must come from Lego as Store Displays, but it is pretty neat to see these in the package from Lego.  I was also wondering if they had these created from another company or if they were produced by Lego.  It looks like Lego must make them and ship them out to the stores.Lego 19 inch minifigure store display box

 

 

 

 

I recently posted about the largest collection of these that I have ever seen here

http://minifigpriceguide.com/wordpress/lego-19-inch-giant-store-display-collection-of-minifigures-over-45/

The above link takes you to the largest collection of these figures that I have ever seen for sale at any one time.  It looks like he has about 45 of these for sale for a whopping $60,000.

I found the figure below on eBay where it is currently for sale for about $775 here

I located 9 more Lego Employee Business Card Minifigures for a total of 48 now

I have attempted to make a complete collection of all Lego Minifig Employee Business cards.  I am probbaly still missing some, but I think that this is the most complete list yet.  Please let me kno if you know of any others that I have not found.  You can click on the image to see my full list.

Lego Employee Business Cards Collection

Let me know if you know of any that I do not have in this list?

Previously, I had located about 39 Lego Employee Minifigure Business Cards from a Collector in Spain.  Lluis Gilbert can be contacted through twitter at @lluisgib or Facebook facebook.com/lluisgib

While trolling through Google+, I believe that I have located about 9 more minifigures and I think if I threw another hour at it, I could probably find about 10 more.  I have heard rumors that about 100 exist and I bet that is true.

I saw one of these on eBay a few months ago.  Here is the search I used.  However, I think that most of these change hands privately.

Alternatively, you can do what I did and pick up one of these.

Here are the new ones that I have located and as before, I have updated the price guide to keep a running record of all of them here.

As I stated before, I have all of the listed at about $50 dollars since that I what I think that they are worth.  However, in all reality this will depend on what people are willing to pay.  With that said, I would be willing to pay at least $50 for most of these, so I am guessing that this number is a little light if any of these were to come onto the market since they are so rare.

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Winter Soldier Exclusive Minifigure with 76042 Helicarrier Purchase

Lego Winter Soldier PolyBag 5002943 Free with 76042 Helicarrier purchase

It looks like Lego is running a promotion in Europe and Australia for this set and throwing in a free Winter Soldier Polybag.  I am hoping that they run a similiar promotion in the United States as well.  This is a figure that I am still missing.

It looks like someone at PromoBricks already picked one up and did a review on it.  I also posted a link to the YouTube video below.   This looks like a very nice Minifigure.

 

I think that if it was Lego’s intention is to give this figure away with the Shield Helicarrier, then they should have just included it as the 350$ set does not contain very many minifigures to begin with.  I do not think that it would have been too much to add this one in as well.  Additionally, I just went and bought this set as a pre-release for VIP members in the US and they did not give this figure away with it.  They really should be more consistent with this.  I was very excited to get this set, but now it feels like I am missing a part.  🙂

Purchase The S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier before anyone else, at LEGO® Stores and LEGO.com/shop.   Plus, as part of early access, get a FREE LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Winter Soldier Exclusive Minifigure. Only until 28th February!

Lego Solid 14K Gold and Sterling Silver Boba Fett Minifigure Versions given away at 2010 SDCC and Star Wars Celebration IV

This post and site may contain Affiliate links.

I have been meaning to write about these two figures for a while, but I was having a problem finding complete information about these figures.  This collection of figures was given away at SDCC 2010 and Celebration V in 2010.

Lego Star Wars Gold and Silver Boba Fett SDCC 2010 and Celebration V giveaway

 

The above picture was taken by Flickr User JennFL2 and is one of the 9500+ images in her collection.

The three figures included in this collection are all in the top 100 most expensive and rare minifigures of all time and will probably never be in my collection.  🙂

Sterling Silver Boba Fett

White Boba Fett

Lego Star Wars Gold and Silver Boba Fett SDCC 2010 and Celebration V Minifigures Closeup

If you look at this VIdeo from Fernando Cantu from Star Wars Celebration V, you can see the display that was used to give this away and a few other details.  They had this locked up pretty nicely and in a very nice display case.

I suggest watching the video to see better pictures, but here is a screen capture of the case and the sign that they had for the give-away.  If anyone has any pics of this case from the 2010 SDCC, I would be interested in hearing from you.

Lego Star Wars Gold and Silver Boba Fett Celebration V giveaway Sign Lego Star Wars Gold and Silver Boba Fett Celebration V giveaway

The Gold and Silver Boba Fett Figures are each limited to two copies and they only exist in these cases.  I really would be interested in knowing who has these now, but it probably does not matter as I cannot afford them any ways.  The white figure was also given away as part of the 2010 toy fair and as a poly-bag from Toys R Us.  So this one a little more affordable and can be purchased for about $65-$80 depending on when are where you find it.

I am assuming that these figures are three pieces in the same fashion as the Gold and Silver c-3po and the Bronze Bobba Fett.  I am not positive, but Lego stated that the Gold c-3po was made of three different pieces with the torso having additional engraving.  Even as I say this, I am questioning myself as it really looks like the arms and the helmet are movable.

I am pretty certain that we will never know as they will probably never be removed from the display.

On a lighter note, back in 2010, FBTB reported that one of these was listed on Craigslist.

See here.

“One of the two exclusive Comic-con sets of 1 White, 1 Gold plated, and 1 Silver plated boba fett showed up on craigslist about an hour ago. He wanted best offers or trades. I offered him everything in my house and lots of cash, but he said he was overwelmed with emails and taking the ad down. I was so close!! I feel like breaking something or getting trashed now. Just felt I needed to tell you guys.”

It sounds like it never sold, but if you are really looking for one of these, here is the place to start.  I am sure he received some crazy offers.

I have some prices on these figures based on reasonable estimates and what I would be willing to pay.  I have also spoken to a few other collectors and I am pretty sure that these values are under what they are really worth.  Especially in the case and with all three as the world is full of some really dedicated Star Wars fans.

I would not be surprised if this collection went north of $20,000 in an auction setting.    Especially if it could be authenticated.

It goes without saying, that if you know where any of these are located, I would be interested in hearing from you.  Please feel free to contact me if you know anything, or if you know of additional images of these.
