Meet the Lego Harry Potter Fantastic Beasts Mini figures, this set can be purchased retail. In it you get the complete set of 22 Factory sealed character pieces. If you decide not to invest in the whole set, and try your luck at purchasing individually, then you have to take your chances and purchase a single pack, for 3.99 and hope you get the hero that you want. Otherwise you keep trying. I believe that the set in Canadian dollars is about 180$ give or take.
The figures are rather cute, the collector that I am thought, I want one. I liked the figure third from the left, front row. My first bag, I got Harry himself along with his owl, my second try I got #11 (yes they are numbered,) the character with the red hair and green uniform holding a tea cup. 2nd row, to the right of the other figure I would like, the one with the pointed ears.
My next bag I tore open to find that I got #6, he is standing behind the one I want, in the back row with the green plant. So far three tries, and each one is 3.99 with tax. Do you see where I am going with this. By the time I am done, trying to get the two or three that I want, I will likely end up paying for the cost of the full set. but then what do I do with the other figures?
They are darn cute, I see the attraction, my reality is, with arthritic fingers, and often diabetic numbness that visits these same fingers…. I ask myself if this is a collection that I really really want to start playing with. Of course the one option is that I find others who would want to trade. LOL.. somehow I think that the age group I usually “play” with, won’t have any interest in mini Lego figures.
Oh!!! I was smitten by the dragon and figures in Lego #75951 (Fantastic Beasts) why? One figure looks like a Chinese magistrate, and the other is a an older character who looks dignified with his white hair. Grindelwald’s Escape, it is 132 pieces, suggested for ages 7-14. Take the hyphen away and turn the numbers around, maybe…… the characters are Gellert Grindelwald, and the other is Seraphina Picquery I did get it, how long will it take for me to put 132 small pieces together. It is anyone’s guess. =^_^= will I try?
Some people never grow up, I could be one of them. However, where my mind might be willing to explore the opportunities, The body will often give me hints on the realities of actually following through.
