The mission seemed impossible. Sort of like finding a needle in a haystack. How do you find a single blind bag LEGO mini figure, when: 1) Said figure is in tiny pieces that must be assembled 2) There are 20 different figures in the set ? If you only are looking for one of the figures, you've got to feel the blind bag for a costume piece or accessory. Luckily for me, Jay from the LEGO Ninjago Movie has a scarf and a Selfie Stick. I had previously hunted for Jay at a Wal-Mart with no luck. I found success at a Toys R Us. Toys R Us had possibly hundreds of bags, and fortunately I was able to find Jay early on.
I have yet to see the LEGO Ninjago Movie (I enjoyed the first LEGO Movie and the LEGO Batman Movie). I had never even heard of LEGO Ninjago before the movie was being launched. I had to get Jay because I am a big fan of comedian Kumail Nanjiani. I first discovered him when friends introduced me to the TV series Portlandia (a sketch with Kumail selling a cell phone plan had us in stitches). I later discovered Kumail's stand up and his shows like Silicon Valley and The Indoor Kids, and movies like The Big Sick.

As I have learned from his stand up, Kumail is a big fan of theme parks. Ironically, LEGO Jay's Selfie Stick would not be welcome at some amusement parks. Hopefully they are allowed at LEGOLAND.
