A list of previous monthly mini models can be found on Brickset. The instructions can be found in the notes section under the sidebar on the right for each model.

The bricks in the Pick A Brick Wall are subject to change. As soon as the supply of one type of brick is exhausted in a store, they replace it with another type of brick. There is no particular rotation or order, it is just whatever happens to be in the delivery that the store gets from Lego. Selection varies by store and the elements are always changing ...

Yes, you can. Or at least I've been able to reuse mine in the past. I believe it was $0.50 off for the big cup and $0.25 for the small cup.

You can indeed take bricks and purchase them. I've listed the main types of Pick-A-Brick in this answer: The LEGO retail outlets house a matrix of bins, each filled with a certain type of brick. The bricks used tend be excess bricks from LEGO's own factories and some bricks of the same kind may be included in more than one bin. Bricks are packed ...

The most common way to buy bricks from LEGO stores is by filling up a PaB cup: There are two sizes of cups and occasionally other containers that can be filled during certain promotions. The large cup is $15.99 USD and the small cup is $8.99 USD currently. This isn't advertized, but you can also buy bricks in the boxes that they are shipped to the store ...

I agree with @jncraton, licensed themes are typically restricted from selling minifigures on their own as that would conflict with action figure licenses. Some amount of construction must be included to make it a building set. You have some options though. In addition to secondary markets like Bricklink and eBay, several Marvel Super Heroes minifigures have ...

As far as I know, LEGO typically does not sell individual minifigures from its licensed themes due to licensing restrictions. Often, another company has an exclusive license to produce action figures from a franchise, which means that LEGO is only allowed to sell building sets. These may contain figures, but there has to be a real buildable component. That's ...

Indeed it seems there are two different boxes for 7670 Hailfire Droid & Spider Droid, but it seems the box is the only difference, so if you just want the pieces ignore which box they're selling and buy the cheapest. :)

Pick-a-brick is a pretty cost effective to get bricks, in my experience. Prices will vary by your locale, of course, but I have one data point. For a 17 EUR PAB cup, I got around 100 EUR worth of bricks using BrickLink's average price. Since the average price is often above the median, and the median is not shown on the page, I instead recalculated using the ...

I believe it's related to the instruction manual format - see the comments to this question. So for example V39 may be printed on US standard letter size paper V29 may be printed on EU standard A4 paper

I wrote a website where users can update the contents of the Pick A Brick wall for various Lego stores. The site is http://www.thelegowall.com/ I used my iPhone to inventory the wall at the Lego store in Orlando, FL. If you inventory your local store please send me some feedback on how the process works. I tried to make the GUI easy to use from a cell ...

If you buy the set that has the figures you want, then sell what you don't want you end up getting the figures for free. As an example, LEGO 76000 Arctic Batman, RRP £20 but when on sale £13. Say you only want Aqua Man, you could sell Batman, Mr Freeze and the bat boat easily for a fiver each, even after fees you now have Aquaman for free....

LEGO doesn't currently sell the figures on their own, unless as a previous user suggested you buy a poly bag which still isn't the figure on its own. Have you seen a website called firestartoys.com ? you can buy individual minifigure parts such as arms let alone complete figures. Here's a quick search of the site for super heroes: ...
