Instead, we’ve settled on the one or two elements that are easiest to feel through the packaging and should instantly give you a positive ID. Anyways, I did find Mr. Miracle’s chain a couple times, but the first time I thought I’d found Batman’s climbing rope (they feel very similar until you actually test for the climbing grips). It can be tricky to make out in photos or video those tiny dots, so what we did was lay a post it note under the bag, mark the center flap and then copied the dot locations in an easier to read format! 71026: LEGO Minifigures - DC Super Heroes - Sealed Box. Read the full review here. @David: If you don’t feel the need to purchase a full case (and who can blame you, since one will now run about $300) then you can use this Feel Guide to help you pick a full set from a retail case at a store, or get extras of that one figure you just really need more of. To save you some time, there’s a shortcut you can use if the case looks like it hasn’t yet been rifled through. Small yet mighty. « New February 2020 releases: LEGO International Space Station, Old Trafford, and Disney Brickheadz now available!

This is the only pack with a large doughnut like piece which sticks out very quickly when you start to feel around this bag. I was thinking it might have been for minifigs that were made in China since they seem to have an aversion to shipping loose parts that far. I’m much closer to China than to many other countries. Reminder: These bump codes might not be perfect. Batgirl’s hair piece is also pretty large in this bag and the top pony tail hair style isn’t hard to find when feeling the bag. Most of the hair and head accessories also will confuse all but the most skilled hunters. We’ll also include a tip for feeling the character in the bag if you want to double down on confirmation. The tips we outline below are not the only way to identify the figures. Also, all CMF minifigures are made in China. You can also feel for the ruffled tutu piece which is thicker textured piece. The detailed LEGO® minifigures (71026) and their accessories will thrill any kid and make a great gift for boys and girls aged 5+. Mostly I found him by the neck bracket, but a few times I was able to catch the lightning bolts. The two claws of this Batman variant are small and easy to shake to a corner. Oh, it would be nice if the new clear action-pose element could be ignored…but the truth is that thing seems to have a magnetic attraction to probing fingers. I’ve identified Batman by the cowl, the batarang, and the climbing rope. Sinestro is tough enough since you still have to find the hair to prove it’s him, but it’s so much easier to find an element than to find not-an-element. If you’re a fish lover, Zodiac is for you! Purely by chance, I was able to ID Aquaman by his hook…once. Providing TBB with products for review guarantees neither coverage nor positive reviews. And for Bat-mite, I don’t think I had any luck with the tile (really odd, given how big it is compared to the completed minifig). For a little while, I couldn’t recognize anything (I’m not interested in all of them, so I guess I had bad luck and only stumbled upon some I don’t care much for), but little by little it clicked and I got 100% success. Your email address will not be published. We definitely recommend using the Feel Guide to confirm any figures you select this way, since occasionally the figures get knocked out of order during shipping, or someone may have grabbed a figure or two already without it being obvious. We transcribed the bag code onto a bright and easy to read post it note. Of course, the quickest way to ensure you get a full set is to not sort by feel at all, and instead purchase a full case to split with friends (or keep for yourself). The big square thick utility belt is also a dead giveaway! Mostly I found the short legs (the _only_ non-standard legs in this wave), and a few times I was able to hit the cowl at just the right angle where I could detect the lopsided ears.
