Cool Minifigure of the Week: Iron Patriot

My favorite minifigure this week is the ultra-rare Iron Patriot.  Iron Patriot was made famous in the latest Iron-Man movie, Iron-Man 3.  Why LEGO decided to only have him available with a Pre-order from Walmart of the LEGO: Marvel Super Heroes Video Game, I will never know.  If you want to get your hand on one, your best bet is eBay, they run around $30 - $40 USD.  WARNING:  Be aware, there are fake/counterfeits out there.  Anyways, he's my jam.

LEGO Collectible Minifigures - The LEGO Movie Series

The new Collectible Minifigure Series has been released and it is purely focused on characters from the new The Lego Movie.  Once again it is a mix of 16 different minifigs all in random blind bags.  Most stores are selling them for $2.99 USD each, but Im sure Toys R Us marks them up a bit. Ive got a few of them so far and so far my favorites are Abraham Lincoln, Shakespeare, the Panda and the Barista.  Who is your favorite?

Here is what lego has to say:
