I came across this unoffical guide to minifigure news while surfing around and thanks to smashing bricks which got this news. This is a ultimate guide for minifigure collector and its will be available in Jul 2011 at Amazon. The book has more than 390 pages , the catalog list 3655 Minifigure® released between 1975 and 2010. It is the most complete listing and therefore an essential guide for collectors and fans.
You can refer to the official site http://www.minifigure.org/ for more details and sample pages
