It is a time honoured tradition that to select the desired minifigure from the sea of blind bags, that one would need to ‘feel’ the contents of the packet.
However, in the light of the Coronavirus pandemic, the Bricks World LEGO Certified Store in Singapore has banned the “feeling” of minifigure blind bags to help reduce the chance of the transmission.
This seems to be specific to Singapore for the moment as I have not heard of other stores around the region discouraging this activity on top of the other measures that have been implemented like the removal of the Pick-A-Brick and Build-A-Minifigure Station.
I’ve made “feel guides” for CMF series since the LEGO Movie ones that came out in 2014 but I have decided not to publish the one for LEGO Collectible Minifigure Series 20.
There are others who have shared their guides but I feel that it is not exactly socially responsible to encourage people to gather at minifigure boxes and grope blind bags for 30 minutes at a time. I apologise to those who were looking forward to the feel guide and thanks to all who have wrote in about it.
Stay safe and wash your hands!
