These figures are available in three different ways! If you’re looking for a complete set, then you can snag it right here and be done with it, having everything in your hands in one fell swoop. If you prefer to buy just one at a time, then take your pick and get any of the figures you’re looking for right here. Or, if you’re just looking for any figure to add to your collection, then have some fun and leave it up to chance by snagging a random booster pack!
A pair of Toronto teens sent a Lego man into space, capturing their plastic astronaut’s entire 97-minute adventure in an eye-catching video.
Mathew Ho and Asad Muhammad, both 17-year-old Grade 12 students at Agincourt Collegiate Institute in Scarborough, used a helium-filled balloon to send the Lego man into space 24 kilometres above sea level two weeks ago. They were inspired to try their mission after watching avideo of a balloon sent to near space by some Massachusetts Institute of Technology students.
The Toronto students used a Styrofoam box containing four cameras and a cellphone fitted with a GPS program so their vehicle could be recovered. They even sewed the nylon parachute to ensure their Lego man would return to Earth safely.
The eye-catching images captured from the flight show the Lego man, gripping a Canadian flag, against a backdrop of a fast-shrinking skyline that gives way to the darkness of space.
Then the balloon pops and tumbles back to Earth. Ho and Muhammad were able to recover the balloon — with their astronaut intact — more than 120 kilometres from the field were it was launched.

The Ame-Comi Heroine Mini-Figures are here! The girls of Gotham City – Batgirl, Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy – are the first in an all new, super-cute line of mini-figures, affectionately known as “mini-comis.” Based on the larger Ame-Comi Heroine PVC Statue line, these miniature Ame-Comi PVC figures are all brand-new sculpts! Batgirl cuddles a squishable baby bat toy, as Harley Quinn wields a deadly pop-gun and Poison Ivy charms a serpentine vine.
Each Mini-figure stands at 5″ high and is packaged in a 4-color window box with J-hook, each non-articulated PVC mini figure is sold separately (or as a complete set from Cmdstore.com), and includes a display base.
A huuuuge number of Lego Mini-figures have now arrived. I’ve always love the little guys with their contented expressions that only occasionally changed to something brighter (or more cynical/mischievous/evil/anything) and now they’re coming in a series that showcases the incredible variety you can get out of a little, one-and-a-half-inch figure.
The first series includes: Demolition Dummy, Forestman, Cowboy ,Super Wrestler, Zombie, Ninja, Cheerleader, Skater, Tribal Hunter, Circus Clown, Magician, Deep Sea Diver, Robot, Nurse, Caveman, and Spaceman. You can get them individually or as a full set!
Series #2 can already be pre-ordered! It comes out next month and includes a selection of figures including the Pop Star, Dracula, the Ringmaster, Mime, Traffic Cop, Mexican and more. They make great additions to a Lego collector’s cache of figures and add a little bit of flair to your average Lego construction.
