LEGO Collectable Minifigures Series 6 Discussion

if it's not, I'm gonna have to get real drunk (figuratively ... maybe I should say drown my sorrows in a lego buying/building binge ). I've been hoping for that fig and like you said, it's pulled off perfectly.
does a 1x2 tile look like that from that angle?

The alien... well, it's a great head sculpt, and that's about it. I'm guessing it's a prototype test torso, and an unsuccessful one at that. How could they make the gray better?? If you ask me, I'd go with the short (aka kid) legs in dark gray, and keep the printing relatively simple-- perhaps just some thin horizontal lines to look like ribbing or something to that effect. As for the torso, same gray color with a minimal print-- maybe a strange new icon in the center chest to symbolize this new race? Either that or some symbol technological graphics, like a tube running from the head area to below one arm, or perhaps a few random nodes attached across the body. Anything but whatever that current torso is supposed to be.
OVERPRICED I MEAN AWESOME!!!

As reported by a LEGO fan in a Taiwan LEGO fans forum, Pockyland, there are two minifigs which are "unseen" before leaked from certain factory from Mainland China. They are the Statue of Liberty and an Alien. It is suspected that they might be among the Series 6, but no solid proof is available so far.
Honestly, as observed from the photos, it seems to me that the quality of the molding and the printing as shown on those unseen minifigs are quite up to the LEGO official product standard. If they are custom made minifigs, the skills of the creator must be very superior.
Has anyone seen them before? Does anyone know where they come from? What do you think?

So many new and exciting accessories. I don't even mind the skater girl and of all of the ones shown so far that had the most potential to suck. But they rocked it, too.
And that butcher will look awesome as a soda jerk in a 50s diner.

I would say these are official. Only TLG would think we needed more skaters. At least she is almost a goth skater.
The genie and the minotaur are great though.
So far I am interested in getting the Leprechaun, the genie, the minotaur (or is it a tribes man), the alien and the space girl.
I think the best face print is the space woman's because it is not affected by teeth plague. When ignoring the teeth, the butcher and the mechanic are great in the lack of detail lines. In fact, the butcher's teeth are done in a way so different than usual that they almost look right.

Also, by the number of orient related new molds, my guess is that Pharaoh's quest will be moving somewhere near India... (hope we get back the elephants!!!) :)

By far the best of the lot (and close to the best of any series to date) has to be that butcher, especially that piece of steak.

This future series is a fantasy-fan's dream, I must say! And we even get a Highlander Warrior and the popstar hair in blonde. I'm totally loving the gothic skateboarder chick too. So many new pieces and new colors...
So far, Series 6 seems to include (correct me if I'm wrong):
1. Alien (with ray gun)
2. Statue of Liberty (with torch and tablet)
3. Highlander Warrior (with claymore and shield)
4. Leprechaun (with pot)
5. Butcher (with cleaver and meat)
6. Mechanic (with toolbox and wrench)
7. Female Skateboarder (with skateboard)
8. Genie (with magic lamp)
9. Minotaur (with axe)
10. Spacewoman (with ray gun)

I was noticing that too! The neck of the lamp may be a spot for the genie to come out of, only I wonder if a minifigs weight would topple it over? If it really does fit and stands, that would be more than amazing, thats already my favorite minifig of the bunch and that would put it over the top.

If there was no such thing as science; you'd be right.
Posted 01 August 2011 - 10:27 AM
Unless Aladdin had some serious arm strength, I'm guessing it might topple. Cool that it fits though.
The meat and the lamp have to be some of my favourite accesories so far, and I'm sure people will go crazy for a new sword, though it would have been nice if the highlander had a proper kilt/skirt piece (and wilder hair or painted face, don't shoot me for historical inaccuracy :P)
Look forward to seeing some Minotaur armies, and a 'Grease Lightning' MOC.
ANOTHER skater... seriously TLG? Ever heard of rollerskates? Roller blades? Scooter? BMX?... :D

I really really hope a new cheerleader is somewhere in the roster. We seem to be missing sports- and horror-themed figures.

But why, why, WHY does the spacewoman's suit have to be PINK?! For crying out loud, in this way feminists will always complain about TLG's gender policy - including me. It's absolutely ridiculous.

Ah clever thinking! Yeah it does seem that that might work, and would be a clever solution. Guess the photographer didn't realise this either.

So many awesome new additions, especially the minotaur looks almost too good to be true. Yet they certainly feel legit to me!
The statue of liberty's headpiece may yet be the very first Lego-element I actually consider to paint: give some colour to that hair and splat some gold onto those rays of light and you get an instant antique goddesses headpiece. Also I'm pissing my pants right now to get my greasy fingers onto one of those djinns! Well played Lego! (However, WHAT took you so long, anyway?)
The grey alien's head should have been there in the mid-90's... but better late than never, I guess?
Highlander, leprechaun, goth skateboarder (fancy hair!), grease monkey (again fancy hair!) and butcher are all good stuff in their own right. They all have something I could include into something castle-related, which is my main point of analysis considering collectable figs.
Be well all!
p.s.: Pink spacesuit? Well, not so much, but face and hairpiece of that space-lady are A-grade material.
edit: p.p.s.: as it became clear with earlier series' figs to hail the advent of coming themes, who else could find that highlander, minotaur and djinn to be a foreboding to some minifig-style Heroica line? Just a thought ^^
