If you're a fan of the LEGO blind bagged minifigs, you should check out the new Character Encyclopedia from DK Publishing. It comes with an exclusive Toy Soldier minifig.

It covers all the minifigs up to Series 10 which just hit stores at the start of this month.
Each minifig is given its own page with a description and factoids.
Thanks to the site Minature Trading, I was able to get the last figure I wanted from Series 9, the Fortune Teller. Here are the minifigs joining my Cabin in the Woods display cases.
First up is the Battle Mech. According to its LEGO.com bio, this is actually a giant robot that fights space monsters. I think he'd make a pretty cool airborne shock trooper.
I really like this Cyclops. He has a two sided head. The other side has his eye half scrunched like he's mad about something. Probably about getting photo-bombed! He also has another feature LEGO's been dabbling with lately, graphics on his back as well as front.
Although I force myself to stick to the sci-fi and monster minifigs to keep the collection under control, I can totally justify having a gypsy Fortune Teller in the bunch. In fact, the first thing that came to mind when I knew about her was that she'd be good next to the Werewolf minifig. She's one of my favorites in the whole line. She's got a little shawl on and check out the gold discs on her head wrap and different patterns on her lower half.
She also comes with two tiny Tarot cards!
Ok, who keeps bombing my photo-shoot?
Looks like some change is in the cards for you, Jack! I got him from Five Below as part of a Nintendo DS accessory pack for $1. You can't beat a buck for a LEGO minifig!
