Minifigure Spotlight - Lego Minifigure Disney Malificent

The Disney Minifigure set offers a great selection of minifigures throughout the Disney universe.  One of my favorites was Malificent.  With the new Disney Castle there is hope there might be a whole Disney line eventually, but I'm sure there will be a series 2 for these minifigures.

Malificent should be fairly easy to find since it's the only minifigure with a wedge base and the horns and staff are easy to find.  This minifigure falls in to the uncommon or 3 per box catagory.  I do love the way the cape looks and the overall whole feel of the minifigure is pretty complete.

Nothing like a thrift store score!!

Earlier this week I wasn't feeling so good so I took the day off and slept.  About mid-day I was feeling better and decided to go out and pick something up for lunch.  While out I just had this feeling I should stop into my local Value Village and ended up scoring 3 huge bags of random Legos!

Well they were mostly Legos.  In lots like this there are always a few odds and ends throw in.  If you look close you might also see the Shell logo on pieces.  Plus I could see a nice assortment of larger base pieces.  

 After looking through the bags I decided that there were at least two different Shell gas station sets represented, but incomplete.  But I noticed a lot of the blocks looked old.  I mean really old. They were worn and dirty, very well played with, but the lettering looked different.

And then I found this mixed in with the more modern bricks.

This piece helped me determine that I have a large portion of the 1958 Lego Esso Service Station set.

That's pretty incredible.  Mixed in with the modern bricks both Lego, MegaBlok, and others was a real classic.  In the bag there were also a mix of old windows and a bunch of old tires from the 1960's.  I'm glad I had a feeling.

Capt America Civil War Polybag

As luck would have it I stopped into my local Toys R Us to see if they had any new polybags and they did.  I managed to snag one of these Captain America's Motorcycle bags.  The nice thing is it was priced the same as a blind minifigure bag and you get a neat motorcycle with side card.

I'm not sure, but I'm don't believe the minifigure is unique to this set.  It looks a lot like the one you get in the Airport Battle set, 76051, but you don't have to shell out the major dinero for it.

The cycle is a nice minibuild and it even has a place for Cap's shield.

Minifigure Spotlight Disney's Buzz Lightyear

Out of all the Disney minifigures this is the one I wanted the most.  Oddly enough it was one of the toughest for me to find.  But Buzz is easy to pick out of a box with the backpack and wings being all one piece. To infinity and beyond!!

Lego Minifigures Disney Series Rarity Guide.

It's interesting that Lego has decided to add two figures to the set list with this series.  I wonder if they'll carry this over to the next set?

Anyway, 18 figures to collect, from what I can find there are only two rarities in this set.  Some figures are more common being found 4 per box, but the majority of figures are 3 per box.  Meaning you still get 3 full sets per box.

So I'll use common for the 4 per and uncommon for the 3 per.  Looking over the figures most should be easy to feel for in their packaging, with Buzz and Ariel being the two that should stick out like sore thumbs.

1. Stitch - Common
2. Toy Story Alien - Common
3. Buzz Lightyear - Uncommon
4. Aladdin - Uncommon
5. Genie - Common
6. Maleficent - Uncommon
7. Alice - Uncommon
8. Cheshire Cat - Uncommon
9. Daisy Duck - Uncommon
10. Donald Duck - Uncommon
11. Minnie Mouse - Uncommon
12. Mickey Mouse - Common
13. Mr. Incredible - Common
14. Syndrome - Common
15. Peter Pan - Uncommon
16. Captain Hook - Uncommon
17. Ursula - Uncommon
18. Ariel - Uncommon

MInifigure Spotlight - Lightning Lad

Haven't done a spotlight in a while and really haven't done much here I apologize.  The Lightning Lad minifigure comes from the 2015 Black Friday Target Exclusive 4 pack.  I was able to actually find a pack well after Black Friday.  To be honest this was the only minifigure in the pack that really interested me.  Lightning Lad is a member of the Legion of Superheroes, I'm not sure if we'll be seeing more Legionnaires in the furture.  He comes with a really nice paint job and the Legion tattoo on the bicep is nice and has an alt face.  I decided to try something new and found a cheap little turntable, see if you like the 360 idea.
