How To Find A Golden Mr Gold Lego Minifigure From Series 10

Updated on April 25, 2013

In this article we are going to be taking a look at how exactly to find one of the rare Golden Minifigures contained inside Lego Series 10 Minifigures. We will tell you all about these limited edition gold figures and how you can get your hands on one, plus how likely you are to find one in the mystery bags. Plus we will tell you a little bit more about Lego Minifigures Series 10.

Lego Minifigures have been going for around four years now. Each series contains sixteen collectable figures which come is sealed mystery bags. Although the toys are still considered very popular Lego have come up with an idea to give Series 10 some special significance. They have made a 17th figure, this will be a rare limited edition golden figure called Mr Gold that is going to be highly sought after. This is likely to increase interest in the series and get people out there hunting for the rare items. So let’s tell you just how likely you are to find one of these.

Mr Gold Has Arrvied

How To Find A Golden Minifigure

So the news of these new figures was announced at the London Toy Fair in January. Lego have said they are going to be making five thousand Mr Gold special limited edition Golden figures. The five thousand will be placed into random mystery bags and then spread out over the boxes and then shipped all over the world. So we are likely to see some of these rare Mr Gold figures turning up in some unusual locations.

So in reality what are the chances of you opening a mystery bag and finding one of these rare figures? Well the odds are not in your favour. Lego sell millions of these figures every year and so the odds of finding one are extremely low. Even if you opened every packet in one of the cases that you find in the stores, chances are you will be disappointed. Hundreds of thousands of these cases ship all over the world, so there is no way of pin pointing where the gold figures could be.

So if you really want to get your hands on one of these Mr Gold special figures what can you do about it? Well one option is to spend thousands of pounds buying Lego Minifigures and hoping for the best, the more sensible option is to head to eBay. Chances are these figures are going to start popping up on websites such as eBay and Amazon, just how much they are going to start going for is open to debate, but it will certainly be interesting to see when Series 10 is released in May.

When & Where Will They Be?

A clever move that Lego have also announced is the fact that with each limited edition Golden Minifigure there will be a special code provided. This means the new owner can log onto the website and record where they found their rare figure. This will be very interesting to watch as it means we should be able to keep track of how many figures have been found and how many are still out there waiting to be opened. It reminds us of the Golden Ticket from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

As to exactly what the new limited edition figure will look like this is now confirmed and we do have a picture up of the rare Mr Gold minifigure. As you can see he looks like quite a cheeky chappy and he is sure to be very popular with fans.

Series 10 of the Lego Minifigures go on sale in May so it should be soon after that when we start seeing the first gold figures turn up. Along with the rare figure there are of course going to be sixteen other figures and some of these include ones such as Medusa, a Sad Clown, Bumblebee Girl, a Paintball Player and a Tomahawk Warrior. This series looks like being a very good one and the fact that there is now going to be a rare seventeenth figure only increases the level of anticipation around these new collectables.

So whether you buy these Lego men just for fun or you are a serious collector I am sure you will agree that finding one of these rare Mr Gold Minifigures from Series 10 would be very exciting indeed. Although the chances of any one of us coming across one of them is quite slim it will be great fun tearing open those mystery bags and hoping to see something golden glimmering inside. All we can really say for now then is, happy hunting.

      Hot Wheels is doing the same thing, make something rarer than others and a children's toy becomes an adult free for all. I've seen these gold guys on eBay for $500 or more. I work at Walmart and there are at least 10 eBayers that come in search the Hot Wheels, baseball card packs and Legos on a nightly basis. I tried to let management know what they were doing and they can't or won't stop them. With the Hot Wheels, I try to get them before the other guys do and throw them in the Toys For Tots bins at Christmas.

      I don't see how it is a scam. LEGO is not making anything from fans on EBay or Amazon. they tried to do something fun and exciting for their fans that they couldn't do on a larger scale. I think it's great!!
