If you happen to be around to join in the celebration of LEGOLAND Billund’s 50th anniversary, or you know someone who is there right now, you may want to ask that person to pay a visit at the theme park’s LEGO Store and be one of the few to first have LEGO’s Collectible Minifigure Series 18. This latest CMF series is scheduled for a worldwide release on April 1 (and mind you, this is not an advanced April Fool’s day joke), and visitors of the Danish amusement park is in for treat for being the first buyers of this highly desired collectible minifigs.
Promobricks once again shared these first images of the pre-launch of the LEGO CMF Series 18 which is now put on public display and retail at LEGOLAND Billund.
As I’ve mentioned before regarding the series’ minifigure distribution, Series 18 actually comes with 16 minifigures + 1 chase minifig which is the Classic Policeman from 1978’s LEGO Classic Town Police Car (600-2). If you are a LEGO CMF completionist, then the only way to be assured of the Classic Policeman minifigure is to purchase an entire Series 18 box. The fact is, if you’re in Billund right now and from the looks of it, the park’s in-house LEGO Store has plenty of Series 18 boxes stockpiled for eager collectors.
As you can see from the above image, the entire LEGO CMF Series 18 box retails in LEGOLAND Billund for 1,797 DKK or roughly equivalent to $300 USD. Frankly, this is a higher amount due to current currency exchange, but it is somehow expected that each box will be sold around $200 to $220 once it makes it way on store shelves in the US on April 1, with each blind bag retailing for $3.99.
