i wasn't into the figures series, but last week i had some un-expected time off for recovery and needed to keep walking.
so we went: SHOPPING!

anyhow, our local Blokker-store had some left-over series 1,2 and 3 bags for €1,99
I saw the image of the uncle sam and lady liberty, so i thought: let's give it a try.  :P
Fiddling around with the package, i managed to get uncle sam 2 times  ;D  Even my wife liked to do it lol.

So, now i just need to find Lady Liberty and a couple of others.  :P

I went to Tuesday Morning today, and they had the Series 3 women - the first f?gures I've seen at all locally.  But they were pretty well picked through, and I'm not too great at guessing (and the bags are filled with air due to elevation). I want the female baker, but no luck.

Ha, I've never really thought about that before. The pressure would be so much lower at some high altitude towns that they'd have to be bigger. :lol: That's unfortunate for you though, but at least you saved the awkwardness of feeling them. :-\

Guys, even if the bag is full of air you can shake piecesinto the corners and identify them that way.

I really tried. I'm about a mile up, so it's a lot of air. I could feel the surfing board, the Statue of Liberty crown, and the neck piece for the singer; and I could tell the difference between skirts and pants (though the hoop skirt ones were gone). It's pretty hard to find that cake. Or maybe there weren't any bakers left.

TRU here JUST got in series 4 (a little late?!), so they had an entire box full of both males and females. I wanted to buy a bunch of the boys for my kiddo, but I just dont have the time to stand there feeling around in the bags, so I just grabbed a random 15 of them out of the box and left. To my utter dismay I ended up getting 4 kings, 3 baseball players, 2 pirates, 2 clowns, a wizard (YAY!), the rapper guy, pilot, and an alien. 4 kings!! Boo :( So now Im just missing the mad scientist, indian, gladiator and fireman, which Ill prolly just buy off ebay to complete the sets. Maybe if I could figure out how to sell the extras on ebay... lol
