More bumping: Lego Minifigures Series 11

As you might recall, in September, Paul acquired a few of the “grab bag” type minifigures from Lego.  A few weeks ago, we went to the Mall of America Lego store and acquired a few more.

Why do I have all of this stuff? Remember when my apartment was empty? I’m sure Paul does and wonders when in the hell it’s ever going to be clutter free again.
