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.
We used the combo bump code & feel up method to try and determine what minifigures lie in the green bags, but sadly, we still don’t have a gingerbread man. The waitresses’ tray feels very similar to his head. Plus, the bump code wasn’t the same one as the waitress we already had.
One of the people at the Lego store said that the problem with the bump codes is that there could be manufacturing defects in the bags, so the bumps aren’t very reliable. Could be. I mean you can see the doubles in the above image that have different bumps.
I guess that’s part of the fun though, not really knowing what’s in the bag until you open it.
I still want that gingerbread man!
