It has been pretty cold, snowy, and icy around here this winter. It has been very frustrating to know that the new Series 9 Lego Minifigures were in town, yet at a store pretty far when considering driving through an ice storm. It seemed like every day there was a new excuse that kept me inside. Finally we got a break from the 10's and non melting street snow, and I was able to hit the store!
Luckily my market had like 12 boxes of these, so there was no short supply. I also had a lone aisle to dig through, play bump codes, and smoosh. For a first run I did pretty well, 13 out of 16, with four repeats (repeats being the good ones too).
I will say this is a very strong series from the last couple. Many epic characters to play with.
