@wootfast: This is 1 mini-figure for over 7 dollars? Man, you must be INTO this.

@gwintner: no you get 10 mini-figures for $.49

It says, "This is an individually packaged, randomly selected figure."

and if you search by the part numbers you'll see its a single pack. Not 10.

vote-for1vote-against

There are 10 individual packages included with this purchase.

Question at the bottom:

1 answer There are 10 individual packages included with this purchase?

NUMBER ONE
A: Yes.

My guess is that they are coming out with series 2 soon and are trying to clear stock.... Toys R Us and Lego both are out of stock of these....

GREAT DEAL!!!

@wootfast and @nicktest: You have to admit that neither the title of this posting nor the place it linked to was too clear that you got 10 minifigures for this price. Shame, would have voted it up.

vote-for1vote-against

@gwintner: Ya i get what you are saying but if you read all of it you will know that it is for 10.

vote-for1vote-against

$3.99 each at thinkgeek (shipping not included) if you're still after random minifigures.

vote-for1vote-against

Still in stock. Just ordered a few sets.

vote-for1vote-against

just put in my order. lets see if i get 10 random minifigs or not. crossing fingers, toes and anything else for good luck.

vote-for1vote-against

In for two. Either way it will be minifigs I don't have yet.

vote-for1vote-against

In for two too.

Mod's please un-RIP(de-RIP?) this deal so I can add my vote.

vote-for2vote-against

I have a really hard time believing that this is actually for 10 figs. It just HAPPENS to be the same price that every other online retailer is selling 1 figure for? I want to believe (like Fox Mulder), but I just can't.

vote-for2vote-against

@mskinnerthebo: ...and yet I went for it. siiiiiiiiiiigh

vote-for0vote-against

Sorry, but there is no way they are selling 10 of these for $3.99. Lego.com sold out of them at $1.99 for 1 figure. When Legos are hard to find, the price goes up, NOT DOWN!

vote-for1vote-against

here is why i know it's for 10:
Package Weight: 2 lbs (i dont think one weighs 2 lbs)

"Each figure in Minifigures Series 1 is a surprise, which 10 will you get?" (it says 10 not 1)

Q: There are 10 individual packages included with this purchase?
A: Yes

vote-for1vote-against

Yeah, there is no way this is for 10. I believe the 10 in the description is a typo, and the rep answering the question just confused.

vote-for0vote-against

Reasons to think you get only one:
"LEGO Minifigures Series 1 Mini-Figure" (singular)
"This is an individually packaged, randomly selected figure."
"Each figure in Minifigures Series 1 is a surprise..."

Reasons to think you will get ten:
"... which 10 will you get?"
Somebody posted a question asking if you get 10, and somebody else (not the seller!) answered yes. Note: Buy.com lets ANYBODY post answers to the questions.

vote-for1vote-against

Just received shipping confirmation! It's USPS so there's no shipping weight shown.... I guess I'll find out soon enough LOL

vote-for2vote-against

I sent question to the company selling the item (Valley Tech Toys). Their reply:

-------------------------------
Thank you for bringing this issue to our attention.

It looks like someone one the bottom asked a question, and someone else answered 'yes'.

That is incorrect.
This is NOT a bundled listing on this item.

Our listing is for ONE Series 1 Minifigure as it has been for the past month on this specific listing.

I have placed a trouble ticket with Buy.com's support to ask them to remove that comment and restore the original correct description as it is quite deceiving on what is being sold.

In the interim, I have suspended our listing until Buy.com corrects the listing.
---------------------

Case closed.

Yes, very prompt and courteous customer service at the store. Indeed this deal is not for 10 figures, only one. They are working to resolve the confusing verbiage now. They graciously canceled my order with no penalties- big ups to them. I encourage everyone to continue patronizing them despite this half-cocked misunderstanding.

Woot has done these folks a grave disservice by propagating a ten-fold inflation error. BAD WOOT! No bolero of chrysanthemums for YOU!!!

This is Steven, Owner of ValleyTechToys

This listing is for one (1) single Series 1 Minifigure. Our listing has been on Buy.com for the over a month without issues.

Unfortunately, a question at the bottom was asked, and someone else answered incorrectly (why they did, I don't know, there hasn't been another seller aside from Entertainment Earth), resulting in confusion and this invalid Woot.

I am sorry about this confusion. We have pulled our listing for the interim as we work with Buy.com to remove that comment and restore the original description information. I have also contacted Woot!'s staff to request that this Woot deal be clarified in the OP.

Again, we regret this misunderstanding.

With regards,
Steven

What a joke. Seller is so misleading in his description. I have sent them an email to cancel my order although I have already recieved shipping confirmation. If nothing else I will return to sender and dispute the charges. Not to mention the overpriced non combined shipping for one little bag of a lego figure.

Edit: seller did promptly reply and cancel order. I give him an A+ in customer service. The description still needs to be revised. But thank you sir.

vote-for1vote-against

Update:
We have gone through all the pending orders and canceled them. There should be no charge since those had not been processed.

For those whose orders who had been processed prior to being made aware of this confusion, we have uploaded the cancellation order to USPS and the refund to Buy.com. A reversal of the charges IN FULL should occur to your method of payment.

Again, I personally apologize for this confusion and incorrect Woot!. We are continuing to work with Buy.com to restore the original listing so that it will reflect the correct description and removal confusion to buyers.

BIG shout out to Matthew S. and Timothy S. in notifying us about this confusion and pointing us to Woot! to remedy the situation.

Best regards,
Steven
Owner, ValleyTechToys

I received a shipping confirmation and then a notice of refund. Guess ValleyTechToys isn't going to do any make goods for the people who tried to order.

Item:
LEGO Minifigures Series 1 Mini-Figure

Comments from seller:
"Unclear posting of qty in listing from recent Buy.com alteration. Only 1, not 10."

---thought it was too good to be true, but i was hoping for the best deal of the century here---

oh well, gonna have to send them a message and see if i can get a discount on shipping if i buy many at once.

@valleytechtoys

your description did say this: Each figure in Minifigures Series 1 is a surprise, which 10 will you get?

now im not an idiot by any means, and that description does say "which 10 will you get"? not which 1 will you get, but 10.

vote-for2vote-against

@valleytechtoys:

the first line in your sales description does say this: Each figure in Minifigures Series 1 is a surprise, which 10 will you get?

Its again repeated in the features:
*Collect them all, and use their parts to customize your very own figures
*Each figure in Minifigures Series 1 is a surprise, which 10 will you get?

im just saying.....
