    Nope, they don't. Feel method is the only way.

    Nope. The only "code" is if you find a fresh box, they are packed in a certain order but then you need to know what that order is.

    Looks cool. Can't wait to see the other minifigures from the film.
    Wait a minute! Fury has a SHIELD logo on him! I guess SHIELD is back in Far From Home.

    And my MOC "USAF Thunderbolt III" is done. Gave it more refined armaments (to include fuel drop tanks) and retractable landing gear. Phew, that was a fun but challenging two weeks.

    They used to have a coding system on the back of the package but it was so subtle it was easier to just grope the bag until you figured out which fig it was.

    The first two series were the only ones with barcodes to identify figures. Others have had stamped codes but they have never been consistent.

    Thanks, man, much appreciated! Two Star Wars B-Wings (set 6208) and an Imperial Assault Carrier (set 75106) gave their lives to make it. :D 

    More photos (put in quotes so it's not too spammy):

    I shot myself in the face with those damn spring loaded missiles too many times to count (luckily I wear glasses). :lol 

    Incorporating missile storage was a good happenstance, as was getting the side landing gears to fold up and hide nearly completely underneath the wings. The front landing gear doesn't fold up so elegantly but I challenged myself to use the leftover parts I had so I worked with what was available.


    Nice. Definitely in on that special promotional keychain. It's the same badging that appears on the wheel caps, front grill, and rear trunk lid on my Mustang. I actually have one of the wheel caps displayed on my desk at work (a replacement part I ordered online).

    My photography skills are nonexistent but I might just try out for that contest. The poster contest sounds cool too.

    It's a better attempt than the last three. Hard to believe that I still like the first one the best.

    The uniforms being all samey is a little disappointing from a toy perspective (variety would've been better) but that's not Lego's fault. They're just following the story of Endgame. That Quinjet does look pretty cool though.

    Broke just about everything in my hands in an accident years ago and my nerves there are a bit jittery. It's annoying because I did the last CMF no problem without a single double and I was utterly convinced this time that I'd accurately identified the ones I'd picked. Thankfully the day after was better and I went six for six towards the collection. Just need the Business Golfer and Dorothy now to have the full set. Pity I reckon those will be the hardest two for me to feel out. I'll probably also get another Unikitty to replace the one I got with the defective tail.

    Lego Creators Mustang is up for ordering. The free promotional keychain isn't showing up in my cart though. Hmm. Might need to give Lego a few hours to fix that bug. Free Unikitty Roller Coaster train car though.

    I wound up with Two Golfer Businesses, if you have any doubles of the Guitar playing Kitty, Chick with hula skirt and record or guy in watermelon costume we could work out some sort of trade? Maybe.
