New LEGO Minifigure Catalogs

Posted by on Mar 22, 2012 in Design | 1 comment

I am proud to announce the availability of three new Minifigure Catalogs. The books are available from CreateSpace, Amazon and as a eBooks from Lulu. I am in particular happy to be able to offer the 2011 Minifigures as a new companion book. You do not need to purchase another big book, but you can simply update you reference with this series of annual catalogs. The Harry Potter and Star Wars catalogs are specifically targeted to collectors that focus their collections and who have no need for a complete overview.

The three new catalogs use a new and improved design that shows multiple photographs and the associated meta data right next to each other. A price guide will offer you insights into the rarity of the Minifigures.

The App will also soon be updated to include the 2011 Minifigures. Stay tuned.
