Don't you just hate coming out of your Lego Dark Ages to find out they've completely changed the toy you used to love?
Welcome to Town Junior, which made its appearance about six years ago. This caused the birth of the acronym POOP: Pieces made Out of Other Pieces. Fortunately, there are still many non-Town junior sets.
Visit the lego website. There are still plently of sets that are indeed building sets. You just have to be an informed shopper. And look closely at the new Creator series.
As for the minifigs, I hope you have deep pockets. The average price of a minifig is about US$3. Unpopular (read very common) ones are cheap, US$1 or less. Rare minifigs (for example some of the female variety from the 1980s) can go for US$30 or more.
The best way to get a variety of minifigs quickly is the 9293 Community Workers set which has 30 minifigs and costs US$34.
