  1. Latest update: got a couple of display cases and happy with my progress so far. Taking a bit of a break before trying a few more colours and pieces needed for some incomplete ones.
  2. Yep those 2 torsos were easy to erase, arms needing to sourced from elsewhere. Light aqua could be a while since they only just came out with Silent Mary.
  3. My first Bricklink order arrived, no turning back now! edit: order 2 arrived. I used a simple eraser to remove a few prints - 3 torso & the dark purple head. They took a few minutes each but I'm happy with the results.
  4. Sadly I don't think bricks and pieces is available in New Zealand, or the shipping would be ridiculous. I'm happy utilising Bricklink for now. Did you still need help with some of the head colours you had question marks next to? Dark Purple can be Buzz from the Disney series or more recently head 3626cpb1764 on Bricklink (Batgirl). I've ordered the latter as it was more readily available, it is dual sided so will need wiping for sure. Medium Azure from the series 6 Genie, and Dark Azure from a Ninjago set, item 3626cpb1705. I'm a sucker for the Azures! I just need dark hands and medium torso, just waiting on my other orders to show up and hopefully be error free before I continue sourcing the rest I need.
  5. I've just started down this trail too. The Monofigs ebook was so helpful, but appears to be gone now (only available at a cost). Luckily I took quite a few screen shots and noted down all I needed to know while it was available, and I made Bricklink wanted lists for each colour I planned on completing (or starting). I am currently waiting on 4 Bricklink orders to arrive which gives me around 80% of the parts I needed. I'm skipping some of the more difficult colours (I also can't sacrifice Piggy Guy for his legs!) and Iuckily I don't feel the urge to have to complete each colour! It's a fun and entertaining exercise, and I find myself thoroughly checking each new wave of Minifigures and sets for new parts, such as the light aqua arms with the Silent Mary set. I'll post some images when my orders arrive. I'll give the brasso method a try, but at first I will just turn each head and torso around so you see the plain side from the front.
  6. For sure the Hot Dog Vendor has so many neat parts and I'm sure lots of people will be updating their MOCs with these.
  7. Haha I didn't think you'd go that far! I did too on Thursday night so I'll have it Monday then can spend Anzac Day sitting down and identifying them all :)
  8. Yep saw that, from Toy World. My Sister-in-law works at a Warehouse so I've got her keeping an eye out for them :)
  9. ToyWorld has buy one get one half price until Sunday, storewide including Lego
  10. Oh wow I am so jealous. I'm looking forward to getting this one, can't wait to see more pictures :)
  11. 3 sets of 20, perfect distribution. I received my sealed box today, makes it perfect to split between 3 people.
  12. Yes I am honestly surprised they did an even distribution for this set. I wished they would, but wasn't expecting it. Makes it easier for sure as you don't have to worry about having extras to get rid of. Already have a box on preorder 😀
  13. The Lego Batman Movie series of Collectable Minifigures are being released in January, bringing a 20% price rise with them. Retail on these will be $5.99, and there are 20 to collect this time around. Fair to assume all future series will be the same price too?
  14. When do you think we can expect to find out the Minifigure distribution per box? I'm not sure I want to commit to preordering a sealed box of 60 just yet when we can't be sure if there are 1, 2 or 3 complete sets per box. They've gone up $1 / 20% here in NZ, from $4.99 to $5.99, although you never really need to wait long for a retailer to do 15 to 20% off.
  15. I'm really impressed with the quality of the printing on these. While not a huge Batman fan, I'll be getting the series as I like collecting the CMF range. It looks like there are enough unique pieces to make identifying each character not too difficult. I'm very interested to see the distribution for each character per box.
