Stay tuned...in the mean time, here is a pic of the figs...

The helmet is two pieces that snap around the Sandy head mold. I will take detailed pictures and fit it on other minifigures, yes... :-D no worries there. See you all soon! X-D Update: And I did too! X-D

That helmet looks quite good. Though I wonder if it would look too big on a normal head. Sponge-Bob looks really off, like he's grown arms out of his head. I guess that's because they had to lower his face to fit the space-suit on him...

What's the price? Is that nose cone a new piece?

Whoah! Those figs are cool! I just wish they were more show accurate though. Patricks face looks really small and wierd.  |-/  I smell a sig-fig variation...  ;-)

Sorta, we had this discussion somewhere else on EB, I just can't remember where! X-D
I agree with you, good job making these forums look nice, and all you other Graphist admins!

You know what? Your title should be :"Obtainer of rare antiquities"

:-P .

I'm quite interested in what new pieces are in this set.

This is the only SB set I can see myself getting...that cartoony rocket is too hard to resist.  Can't wait for the review.  I will, of course...

I'm all for humor, but can we be a little more constructive? What is it you don't like here? The release date, the packagin, the set? Perhaps you were too busy crying to be more thorough. I hope you are okay... :-P

By the way, patient laddies, I'm starting the review now... X-D

Wow nice set, this set looks much better than i expected. The sandy fig is great and i love the fact you can remove her helmet *wub*

The only thing that lets this set down is all those bloody stickers!!! Come on lego get rid of that sticker crap >:-(

Thanks for this review, Hinckley (as always X-D )

I must start saying that I really don't like SpongeBob :-X , and I can't understand why LEGO decided to buy this license |-/
Anyway, this set may have a chance with me, since it seems to be packed with useful pieces I cpould use elsewhere (burying the minifigs somewhere >:-) ).

The cristal ball is nice to me, and I'm glad the spoils are brick-built, and not huge useless molds *y*

All in all, 8/10 for the set; but 2 or 3/10 for the MFs :-D
