I've always liked this folder of minifigs, and your latest additions are great. The red wizard is great! Mainly, though, I'm jealous of your rare parts. :D

Thanks for all the comments you have left.

Yes, I can't hide, I like rare pieces. I got them all from bricklink, some bricks a long time ago.

The red Wizard hat is red, not darkred. Maybe I've use the lightning next time better. It wasn't easy to find, I searched a long time for.

The torso from the red Wizard is from set 7419 Dragon Frortress

In my knowledge the other parts don't come from any sets:
- black chinese pike
- red wizardhat
- red shield ovoid
- green bandana
- purple helmet
- purple danjutorso
- black beard
- red fabuland axe

By the way, here is a Minifig I've forgotten:
Image

I wanted to know, where the guys get these rare pieces from too, but they don't share this informations.

Bevor buying a rare part there is the uncertainty whether it will come with a set in the next months or not. I've buyed some bricks for a high price and a few month later a new set contained it...

So keep on hunting :wink:

regards,
jens

Great figs! My favorites are the wizard, the mongolian and the nubian, the wizard got a fantastic colorscheme!

A fellow wierd color-collector in training here, I bought a white vampire hair (it just screamed "make an anime character out of me!").

As for where people get them, I did hear from some Lego employee that they are from prototype sets or simply mistakes produced and gone traveling through bricklink that way- Lego employees got the right to "get the trash" free, I guess. :shock:

As for the Jayko-guy, where did you get a non-printed armor and the round shield? You do not list them so what sets are they from?

Thank you.

The round shield is from 8012 - Super Battledroid

The Jayko-Armor without print wasn't in any set, but there are so many seller on bricklink, I don't thought about it, when I was listing the other parts.

The green bandana is from an official set: 6071 Forestmen's Crossing. It is on the rare "forestwoman" figure.

You collection of rare pieces is nice. I also collect a few castle items like these.

I think the term rag wrap is a poor name for that type of hat. Americans use the term bandanna mainly for a head wrap than a neckerchief. That is why I misinterpreted your post.

From wikipedia:

A bandanna (from the Hindi bandhana, "to tie") is a type of large, usually colourful, kerchief, usually used as head gear.

Great minifigs Jens !
And also nice to see you using all these special pieces, instead of just collecting and storing them. :wink:

Thanks Jens,

It looks like we're all in the same boat, except you have the rare peices.

I find this very interesting. I know some other members here have rare pieces like Jojo's red ghost and someone has a brown beard at Brick testament.

I'd like to see a thread, maybe a mod or admin can make it sticky, for all the members who have rare pieces to post pictures of them and as much info as they can share. Maybe even a little more detective work.

Like a catalogue of rare pieces. We can marvel at and place bids(not so much, just for info purposes) :lol:

Cheers.

That's an interesting idea. I would be more than willing to share the information I have on mine.

Unfortunately, both Peeron and Bricklink refer to that element as a rag. Both are technically bandanas, however it wouldn't make alot of sense to give both elements the same name. I also have a tendency to mix these two elements up as I call both a 'neckerchief' and a 'dew rag' bandanas.

Still, these non-set elements are quite cool. Too bad I don't have the extra scratch to fork over for such rare items.

Later.

Green bandana: $0.35 on Bricklink
Black beard: $2.95
Black pike: $1.00
Red axe: $0.04 (!)
Red ovoid shield: $9.00


Red hat last went for $3.00, purple helmet went for $10.00, and I don't feel like trying to find the Danju torso so it's still possible to get some of these for a pretty good price. This was not to diminish Jens collection (which is awesome). Just wanted to let people know they could get in on the fun.

I also agree it would be awesome to start a list of unusual pieces that aren't from sets. The red axes and black pikes both took my interest due to their color so I second (or third or whatever) the idea.

That is the nice thing about these pieces...they really aren't that expensive. My green helmet is a bit spendy. It is going for $15 on bricklink right now, but even that can be done.

Josh

PS. If we are going to compile a list of rare (not in any set) pieces, then we should probably start a new thread. I don't want to highjack Jens' thread, but the problem is that I can't decide which forum is best for something like this. :)
