The Great Minifig Mission was a series of LEGO missions on the LEGO Universe website. Every time you completed a mission, you sent a certain number of minifigs into LEGO Universe. There was also a timer that ended on June 1, 2010 at 8:00pm EST, and fans had speculated either that the game would begin then, or the pre-order for the game would be available. However, May 14th 2010 was the day preordering began, and the game was officially released October 8th of that year. The mysterious minifigure is Vanda Darkflame.
