As you may already know, LEGO fans have 18 reasons to celebrate Disney’s centennial celebrations this year. Third in the series, the LEGO Collectible Minifigures 71038 Disney 100 was officially revealed last month and is set to arrive on May 1st in celebration of the House of Mouse’s 100th anniversary. With a bumper of 18 different characters, including Pinocchio, Mulan, Baymax, Cruella de Vil, and more, this new series is expected to be a hit with LEGO fans of all ages.
However, if you’re looking to get your hands on a specific minifigure, you’ll need to be strategic. The blind-bagged nature of these collectible minifigures means that you won’t know what you’re getting until you open the package. So, what are your options for getting the characters you want?
Box Distribution for the LEGO Collectible Minifigures 71038 Disney 100
It has been confirmed already that a single box of 36 packets should contain two complete sets of 18 minifigures. This means that if you buy a complete box of minifigures, you’re guaranteed to get your hands on the full batch of LEGO Disney 100th anniversary minifigures.
However, if you’re only after a few characters, you may not want to spend the money on a full box. In that case, it’s worth knowing the complete box distribution to increase your chances of finding the characters you want. Fresh boxes typically have a consistent distribution of specific characters, so if you know where your favorites are located, you’ll have a better chance of finding them.
Early reviews of the LEGO Collectible Minifigures 71038 Disney 100 such as those from Ashnflash and Jay’s Brick Blog have confirmed the exact box distribution for the new series of blind-bagged characters, and where to find each character based on their particular placement inside their box.
Take a look at the table below.

FRONT OF THE BOX
Complete Box vs. Individual Packets
Buying a complete box of minifigures isn’t the only way to get your hands on the full set of characters. You could also split the cost with a friend and divide up the two sets between you. However, if you’re only after a handful of characters, buying individual packets may be your best option.
Feeling out the Characters Maybe Your Last Option
One of the ways to get the characters is to feel your way through the individual CMF packets. While this method can be effective, it’s not foolproof. It requires a good sense of touch and can be time-consuming. Plus considering the current post-pandemic situation, feeling your way through each bag is not a safe option as well.
Knowing the box distribution layout for the series can help improve your chances of finding your favorite characters. Keep in mind that this layout may not be 100% the same across every box, but it’s a good starting point. It can reduce the amount of time required if you’re fine with feeling each blind bag and improve your chances of finding the minifigures you want. Plus, with the rumored release of the second series of LEGO Marvel Collectible Minifigures in September, which is expected to switch to new cardboard packaging, knowing where each CMF is placed inside a fresh box may be the only method available to find your favorite characters.
For now, fans can look forward to adding the LEGO Collectible Minifigures 71038 Disney 100 to their collection and displaying them proudly to commemorate Disney’s 100th anniversary.
