The Collectible Minifig series have brought us a lot of new part molds. What's your favorite new element that is introduced in each of the two series so far?

Please indicate your choices in the poll.

Note: I'm not talking about prints. And I haven't included parts that have been slightly modified for the collectible minifig series, such as the bow and arrow and the chicken leg. Also, I haven't included parts that were introduced in series 1, such as the clown/afro hair, in the series 2 choices again. (And yes, I know that LEGO Club's 'Max' had the hair before the Skater, but it was introduced on a large scale with the collectible minifigs.)

I vote for the spacemans raygun ans the pop stars hair. The raygun looks really pulpy and can be used in a lot of occasions.

The pop stars hair is, for me, simply one of the best female hairpieces ever. I hope they re-release it in many different colours.

One other thing is, put the hair on the lifeguard and you got an almost 1:1 minifig incarnation of the great Farrah Fawcett (RIP). Absolute fantastic.

Really hard to decide, they are all so good! :wub:

But eventually I settled for Skater's hair and Skiers Beanie, it could however just as well had been Nurse's and Pop Star's hair.

Hair is the second most important part I use to distinguish different characters. I voted for the caveman's hair/beard and the pop star's hair.

Oddly enougth I was thinking something very similar :laugh:

I voted for;

the skater hair from series one (a new hair mold is always good news to me,can't have everyone wearing a bowl cut in lego city can we now? :wink: )

the sombero for series two, because well frankly..... its a sombero and they are pretty cool

Duh. It's the Spartan helmet. :tongue:

But the 3L bar is a close second for a mini builder like me.

Spartan helmet, skier beanie, and the trophy are my favourites :thumbup:

Really hard to choose! I voted skater's hair and skier's skis as they are most useful to me right now, but it could easily have been something else when I have another MOC in mind :laugh:

I voted for the syringe and Spartan helmet - useful and long-awaited, respectively!

Technically, the Skater's hair shouldn't be on that list - it was available on Lego Club Max just before Series 1's release :tongue:

That was an extremely difficult poll for me! In Series One I voted for the space gun because it is so unique and exaclty what my pulp hero spaceman of the 50's needed. The skater hair was a close second because I've already used it for FOUR (counting two surfer's blonde pieces) characters.

In Series Two it was just as hard. As cool and unique as the helmet is, I had to go with the trophy. I'm planning on painting it and adding small wings to make a fairy character.

Tough one, for Series 2 anyhow. Series 1, I went with the lazer gun because it looks great by itself, but several can be combined to create a variety of interesting shapes I plan to use, and they also make great greebling. It's a very versatile and classy piece.

Series 2, I ended up plumbing for the Pharoah's staff. I'm a huge fan of Egyptian themes so, while it's the exact opposite of the ray gun in terms of utility, it's still a rather excellent little thingumybob. The popstar's hair is probably what I'll use most often.

:hmpf_bad:

My favorite from series 2 is easily the mime's beret, although some other parts like the microphone, pop star's hair, and the beanie are welcome additions to the LEGO parts universe as well. Series 1 is harder. The 3L bar is a pretty important part and there are some really nice hairpieces released with series 1, not to mention the pom poms. :sweet: Nurse's hair it is, I guess.

I voted for the Syringe and Spartan Helmet. My brother brought back 70 packets of the little guys from his trip, and caught me totally off guard. I'm very impressed by a lot of the molds, specifically the microphone and weights.

I was split between the skater hair and the ray gun in series 1. In series 2, despite my love for the spartan I had to vote for the sombrero. My wild west gun fighter game needed a little help from south of the border.

Ahab out................

between sombero and spartan helmet, as a history buff I'd hafta go for spartan helmet. How long have lego fans been askin for a greek/roman/spartan minifig?

For series 1 I chose the clown wig/afro, because it's totally different from any hair piece previously available, and I'm really happy to see it come back in black - arguably a more useful colour - in Series 2.

For series 2 I chose the Spartan warrior's helmet, it's a real piece of art. Perhaps not so polyvalent, but it would also look good in a museum, a treasure horde or ship wreck underwater.

Series one: Afro/clowon hair

Series two: Sombrero

It was a tough choice with all the great accesories they had!

Caveman hair and Spartan Helmet for me. Robot Helmet and Pop Star Hair are second.

I voted for the Spartan helmet and the nurses hair. The helmet is just an awesome new piece that works great as a helmet for a minifigure or a great piece of decoration inside of a MOC. The nurses hair is almost as good looking as the mold of Tamina´s hair from the PoP theme. But in the end I´m extremely pleased with all the new parts.
