Hey, I was browsing Brickshelf when I came across this-

It looks to me like a second Vintage Minifigure Collection.

Cool. Looks nice, especially that pirate. However I think they cheated by putting two classic space figures in there...What is the red shirt one from 1982 supposed to be? Looks like town, but I don't know what...

Ooh, I love the Ninja. But I wonder, if they release an old minifig for the next collection, with Dark Gray, will they use the old color to keep it official, or will they use Dark Bluish Gray because it's all they have?  :tongue:

EDIT: Holy cheesecake I've been knighted! Do I get a sword now? :tongue:

This looks good. The ninja I great especially, however I don't think it should have come with 2 Classic Space figures. One of them could have been castle or something.

It looks nice but it has 2 classic spacemen and there was already one in the first edition. It was maybe better to put a blacktron or a forestman or some other castle faction fig or a paradisa woman in it. Now it is very classic space.

@ Darth Person: The redshirt guy from 1982 is a classic town postman. The picture on his chest was also put in other colours on many mailbaxes.

Nice find! :thumbup:
And TWO classic space figures? I'm alright with this but I would have liked to see a little more variety...

It looks nice and I always liked those black classic space guys, but I doubt I will buy it if it costs as much as the previous did. :tongue:

Yeah, they would use the blays, as was done in the last wave of Legends sets. I don't think TLG is even capable of producing the old grays at this point, without re-tooling some of their machines.

That's pretty awesome! But I hope they'll redo those Classic Spacemen. The logo is centered, but it has to be in the left corner above... I hope they'll redo that because the red one in Volume 1 was printed as it has to be. However, details, it's nice.

Most excellent, i must get one.
The pirate vest looks a bit lighter then the original though, but it could be the light.
Why do you need TLC to make sets for you, all you really need is parts...be creative!

This is certainly interesting. I never had the chance to get the red ninja and the pirate is nice to.
An improvement from the first one, at least for all history interested peoples.

The CS-logo always has been centered... even the first ones with a sticker (white & red). The only difference is that it was printed higher on the torso (from white to black).

By the way,... for those how missed the Vintage Minifigure Collection Vol. 1...
this was in it and here you see that the CS-logo is printed like it should be.

If Lego ever decides to drop the price on these things, I might seriously consider picking it up. The Classic Space figures are awesome, and in my two favorite colors; and the Pirate - well, he's a Pirate! What more can I say?

But the current price for them is a little out of whack - I'd much rather pick them up on Bricklink...

I MIGHT consider actually buying this one if I've got money to burn at some point or if it's price is dropped.

Probably gonna cost a fortune like the last one...

Better start saving. I'm guesstimating €18.99.

Looks nice, although maybe for the next one they could put the Forestwoman in?

As much as I'm excited about the prospect of new versions of the Classic Space torso and the ninja going into circulation, I must say I'm confused at some of the choices. Why a red ninja instead of a black or gray ninja? Why have we seen so many space men and so few castle figs? Where are the female figs? Why are these things so expensive?  :sing:

I will probably get one of these anyway though. I do so love ninjas.  :sweet:
