Exculsive Minifigs with DVD or Target and Back Again


March was great for Mini-fig collectors. There were two dvd releases that included exclusive min-figs. Target had an exclusive Bilbo Baggins mini fig with the Hobbit DVD/Blu-ray combo pack. Plus the Cartoon network LEGO Star Wars special, The Empire Strikes Out had an exclusives Darth Vader mini-fig. I’ll tell you about my experience with each.

Bilbo LEGO from Target.

I’ll start with The Empire Strikes Out DVD cause it a shorter story. The special aired on Cartoon Network last September. Last time there was a Star Wars:LEGO special the dvd release was announced right after wards. This time it took a while for the announcement. Speculation was what would mini-fig if any, would be included in the dvd release. This time it was Darth Vader with a medal.

The figure looks pretty cool and an alternate Darth Vader is always cool. The dvd retail for $14.99 but Amazon and Target have it for $9.99. It was easy to find on the shelfs at Target unlike the Hobbit dvd. The dvd was released on March 26.

When it was revealed that Target would offer an exclusive mini-fig with the purchase of The Hobbit dvd/Blu-ray combo I was eager to shop at Target. I decided to pre-order the set. I was afraid the store would sell out before I could get there. So I ordered from target.com, the delivery date was a few days after the date the dvds would be in store. I didn’t expect to be able to watch the movie that night anyway so it wasn’t that big of a deal. But I remember the days when you could pre-order a dvd or game and it would be delivered the same day it was in the stores. I had the same problem with the LEGO:Lord of The Rings Game.
The Sunday ads were released and the in store price was two dollars cheaper than the online price. Did Target guarantee and match prices like amazon did? No. The day the dvd came the online target.com listed the set as unavailable. I was worried they’d sell out. But They tell me if they were out right? I thought about going to the store but didn’t. The next day still no shipping notification. the set was still listed as unavailable online. I had to run some errands and went to Target. They still had about four sets with the mini-fig so I grabbed one. Turned out to be a good decision. This was on Wednesday.

The expected delivery date was between Friday the 22-tues 26. I thought about cancelling the order but I knew some birthdays were coming up and that make a good gift. Finally they send a shipping notification on Saturday. But the pic they sent with it was of the regular DVD/Blu-ray set sans Bilbo. But when I clicked the link in the email it showed the set with Bilbo. And the expected delivery date was changed to March 30. a week after the original expected date.
Finally on Saturday I open the mailbox and inside in a small package, It’s thin so I know before I open that there is no figure in the set. It was a holiday weekend so I waited till Monday to return the dvd to a Target store. The Hobbit dvd was released on March 19 it arrived on March 30. From the time it was released and arrived i had gone to Target bought the Hobbit dvd, made another trip to Target and got the Star Wars special. So lesson learned don’t preorder from Target. get out there and fight the crowds.
The Bilbo figure is very well done. He has blue jacket, a vest and an ascot. His head is double-sided. You will see him in this blog again.

In LEGO Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Out, the original Death Star has just been destroyed, but Luke, Han, Chewie, and Leia can’t celebrate for too long — a new Imperial threat has arisen. And while Luke has become a household name as “Death-Star-Blower-Upper,” he finds that not even the Force can protect him from a new menace: crazed fans! Things aren’t looking so good for Darth Vader, either, who finds himself locked in a hilarious “Sith-ling” rivalry with Darth Maul. LEGO Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Out is an action-packed, comedic romp, perfect for fans of any age.

When LEGO Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Out premiered on Cartoon Network, it became the number-one telecast of the day with kids ages 6-11 and boys ages 2-17. Written by Emmy Award-winner Michael Price (The Simpsons), the special features many of the beloved Star Wars voice actors fans know and love, including Anthony Daniels, Sam Witwer, Ahmed Best, and more.

Darth “no Legs” Maul has returned * Spoilers.


The “Brothers” episode of the Clone Wars has aired. We finally caught a glimpse of the new Darth Maul and for now at least he has spider like legs. The Sith was found weak, insane, and thirsting for vengeance. Hopefully next week we will get answers to where he’s been and how did he survive. The preview for next week’s episode showed him bipedal.

any here’s one of our guesses from feb of what he’d look like and a pic from Star Wars.com of what he really did look like. Kind of close.


Darth Maul Returns. #6


The Phantom Menace has returned to the big screen, this time in 3D. Lucasfilm is promoting the re-release with packaging and advertising featuring Darth Maul. This spring he returns to the small screen in The Clone Wars on Cartoon Network. Wait what? He was cut in two.

Here’s another Yoda Archives prediction of what the new Darth Maul will look like.

#6 Neimoidian Legs

Maybe he steals the legs from Neimoidian, Nute Gunray.


Darth Maul Returns. #5


The Phantom Menace has returned to the big screen, this time in 3D. Lucasfilm is promoting the re-release with packaging and advertising featuring Darth Maul. This spring he returns to the small screen in The Clone Wars on Cartoon Network. Wait what? He was cut in two. That’s no flesh wound.

Here’s another Yoda Archives prediction of what the new Darth Maul will look like.

#5 Dalek Maul


At ConNooga this past week I found some Doctor Who Micro-Figure from Character Building. Thank you Fan Boy glass For carrying them. The figures are sold in blind bags so you don’t know which mini you will get. I got a few packs wanted more but had to stay on budget for the con.

Darth “Bones” McMaul Returns. #3


This weekend The Phantom Menace returns to the big screen but this time in 3D. Lucasfilm is promoting the re-release with packaging and advertising featuring Darth Maul. Darth Maul was cut in two and plummeted to his death in the final act of the movie.
But this spring he returns to the small screen in The Clone Wars on Cartoon Network. Since the Clone Wars takes place after Phantom Menace you probably have some question like, How did he survive? If he survived why is he just now showing up? legs? or Does George Lucas know what continuity means?

We’d like to help answer one of those questions, here’s another prediction of what the new Darth Maul will look like.
