What if you needed to buy some new Minifigures for your Lego collection but didn't want to buy the entire set? Maybe you just wanted Batman or a Storm Trooper.
Legos sets are expensive, and buying a whole set can be inconvenient if you only need specific minifigs.

Sadly, your local toy store won't just stock specific Minifigures you want.
If you need to buy some individual Lego mini figures, what are some great places to look?
Whether you're looking to buy figures from the Harry Potter, Marvel, DC Super Heroes, or Star Wars series, any theme available by Lego, here are some great places to find individual minifigs:
Buying Lego Minifigures on eBay is probably the best way to start.
eBay is a great place to find minifigs because you can find both used and new (never used straight out of the box) minifigs.
You'll be able to find pretty much any minifigs from recent set releases, all the way to older, more rare ones.
The great thing about buying minifigs on eBay is that some sellers will include accessories related to the character, for example, lightsabers, swords, weapons, etc.
You can start your search by checking out our own eBay Minifigure store, we are continually adding new listings. 😌
If you can't find the specific Minifigure you're looking for, searching on Bricklink will be your next move.
Your second-best option for buying Minifigures is Bricklink.
If you're unfamiliar, Bricklink is like eBay for Lego pieces. You can pretty much find and buy any Lego piece ever made there. Their prices fluctuate based on supply and demand.
Whatever Minifigures you're looking for, chances are you will find it.
The only drawback with Bricklink is that the majority of sellers will have a minimum order price or lot limits.
Sidenote: Brickowl is the competitor site to Bricklink.
If you're looking for standard Minifigures, not from any specific movie or other property, and if you are lucky enough to have a Lego store nearby, you might be able to build your own Minifigures.
In some Lego stores, you can find an assortment of different colors and designs for legs, torsos, heads, hair, and accessories from which you can build your own.
Depending on the store, you may even do your own custom printing on the minifig.
Etsy is a great place to find really cool customized minifigs. These will be unofficial Lego themes but often made from genuine lego parts.
If this is important to you, always check the listing to see if the parts are Lego genuine.
Sidenote: eBay is another excellent place to find customized Minifigures.
