I am married to a man who loves his Legos. We have gallon-sized jar filled nearly to the brim with his collection of minifigs and there are several famous buildings and national landmarks rendered in Legos around the apartment.
For the last few years, Lego has produced limited edition minifig series. They come in sealed packages, so like baseball cards, you just buy some and hope you get the ones you need to complete your collection.
I ordered ten of these limited edition toys for Scott’s birthday this year (at $2.99 a piece, they’re fairly affordable) and hoped we wouldn’t get all doubles. After a few delivery issues, the package arrived. We wound up with eight different characters, including the samurai you see above.
