8683 Minifigures Series 1 is a collection of sixteen exclusive minifigures, many of which were based on concepts never seen before in LEGO, that was released in 2010.

Description

Each minifigure was sold individually in opaque polybags and came with a selection of accessories, a special display stand, and a paper checklist. The packaging was intended to make the minifig a person bought random, however, it was quickly noticed that the barcodes on the back could identify the contents. The barcode was thus removed from Series 3 onwards.

LEGO innitially underestimated the demand that these minifigures would create, particularly in America. While stocks were often plentiful in European stores, the minifigures were in extremely limited supply in other territories and shops would often sell out their small allotments within a day. Later series' redressed this issue, but Series 1 remains a highly sought-after item because of these problems. 8683 Minifigures Series 1 has now been discontinued by LEGO.

Notes

  • This series has the lowest number of female minifigures, with two. Series 2, 3, and 4 each have three, and Series 5 will have four.
  • Some Series 1 parts have appeared in LEGO Store build-a-minifigure bins. [1]
