Lego Minifigure Series 11 - Rarity guide

Well it looks like Series 11 is live already, at least in some parts of the world and country, and with that we get to see how the case breaks out.  As always some figures are "rarer" than others.  A case of minifigures consists of 60 blind packs out of those 60 blind packs some figures are considered common or 6 per case, uncommon, 4 per case, and rare 2 per case.  I use these terms only to differentiate the population within a given case.  Of course if you find an unmolested case of minifigures and are adapt at figuring out what's inside you can put together a full set pretty easily as all figures are found in a case. I don't believe there are any super rare figures this time around.

Here is the break down on the population of a case.  I got this from a couple posted case breaks I've been able to find.
Rare = 2
Uncommon = 4
Common = 6

1. Barbarian - Uncommon
2. Scarecrow - Rare
3. Bavarian Pretzel Girl - Rare
4. Evil Mech - Uncommon
5. Tiki Warrior - Rare
6. Ginger Bread Man - Uncommon
7. Christmas Elf - Uncommon
8. Yeti - Common
9. Mountain Climber - Common
10. Welder - Common
11. Female Scientist - Uncommon
12. Saxiphone Player -  Rare
13. Waitress - Rare
14. Grandma - Rare
15. Constible - Common
16. Female Robot - Uncommon

So common figures make up 40% of the box with 4 figures, uncommon figures also make up 40% of the box with 6 figures, and the rare figures make up 20% with 6 figures as well.

There you go. Happy hunting.

Update 10/10/13
Got and email from reader Helen who gave me a run down on her case she opened.
Just seen your blog on the breakdown seems pretty accurate this is what I received.
Scientist x 4
Lady robot x 4
Evil mech x 4
Sax player x 2
Yeti x 6
Holiday elf x 4
Constable x 6
Pretzel x 2
Diner waitress x 2
Scarecrow x 2
Barbarian x 4
Welder x 6
Mountain climber x 6
Grandma x 2
Gingerbread man x 4
Island warrior x 2
Hope the info is use to you

I do believe it matches up with what I already had up, but I'm adding it here for confirmation.

  1. Thank You this helped me figure out which of my minifigs are rare!

  2. I only started collecting these with the current series and had never actually seen any series 11 in the shops.
    Found a shop yesterday which had 11 left: got two of Female Robot and Mountain Climber, the remainder being Scarecrow, Pretzel Girl, Evil Mech, Christmas Elf, Police Constable, Sax Player and Diner Waitress. Didn't do too bad for rarities there and they were 20% off as well!
