This is really an exciting find, so I ended up staying up extra late tonight to get the changes for this completed. I do not think I have seen a collection this large since Lluis Gilbert sent me pictures of his collection!
Back on Novemebr 1st, I noticed this post on Facebook by Marc-Andre Bazergui aka bazmarc of some of his “Special Minifigures” on his FaceBook page. bazmarc entitle this image “LinkedIn LEGO style” and I really thought how fitting that the title was and how much fun it must be to go to these conferences and collect all of these. This is probably years of collecting!
I reached out to Marc-Andre about this photo and he was kind enough to provide me some better pictures of the figures that he had that I had never seen before. I will add those pictures below.
Marc also suggested that the employee list would make more sense if the figures did not have a price attached to them since they cannot be bought. I thought that was a great idea and I changed the program that creates these lists to just put “NOT SOLD ANYWHERE” on these figures. I also removed the price charts for these figures as well.
This change really makes more sense since no one ever sells these figures and they are usually passed between business partners and friends at conventions and other AFOL event. I had originally attached an arbitrary price to these figures that did not have any sales history since these are never on eBay or Bricklink.
I have added the five figures to the list of Employee figures here.
Of obvious note are the employee minifigures that are always rare and difficult to find all of the unique figures. But he also has a few gems in this collection that I have never seen before.
Lego Great Ball Contraption Minifigure provided to him by Maico Arts. I have never seen this one.
Lego Nasa Minifigure. I cannot find anything about this one online, but I seem to remember seeing this one posted once before. I will need to ask about the orgin of this one.
Lego User Group Ambassador Minifigure.
Next up we have a Lego Idea House Minifigure. These are really tough to come by.
Finally, we have the 5 new Employee Business card figures that I did not have on the list already.
I see a few other gems in the background in the original image that I will need to look into later. I am going to go to bed now!
For those of you that do not know, tonight is when we can all go get the new sets on shop.lego.com
Here is a list of the most sought after sets that are being released tonight at 12:00 EST.
