I don't recall saying that I wanted a negative caricature, I envisage him looking exactly like the baddie in the princess and the frog or Mr Drybone from Anancy and Mr Drybone.
Makes sense about the yellow minifig and ones with colour though, especially if he is a human.
Now that I think about it wouldn't making a voodoo witch doctor violate TLG'S no religious peopleS policy, is he just called witchdoctor do you think?

I guess this means LEGO is, perhaps, running out of plot ideas?

Just watched the video on Lego.com, is it just me or might this become on new Ninjago style TV series.....Cartoon Network I believe is planning a different series to run in parallel with Ninjago ? :wink:

I think it has the makings of a good TV show like Ninjago. They seem to have put a lot of work into this series. Even if they don't, I'm still psyched for this series.

Nah, more like its a winning formula: heroes collect the macguffins, customers collect the sets with the macguffins. :wink:

As for the zombie set, I like the male zombie better his CM counterpart, because of the empty eyes. That's my one issue with the female zombie, but I'll wait for reviews before I make up my mind on it.

I was sort of hoping the Zombies set wouldn't come with a vehicle, encouraging me to buy more than one of them.

But I'm getting at least one. Lady zombies rule [and she actually looks fairly creepy], and anything to disprove all those people who say the Shawn of the Dead set is unmarketable is good by me.

I must say she looks pretty good. I'm curious about the bodice extending onto the legs, though. That's a departure from older female figs, like below. I think the torso might look okay with different legs, but using the legs with some other torso might look strange.

I think it does serve to make her look longer in the torso and more human-proportioned than most older minifigs.

All in all, these figs look great. I think I might end up getting all the sets as well. Previously, I was thinking maybe just the zombie set and the castle. I'm a castle/pirate fan, but I'm more excited about this theme than LotR!

Oh my god yes! *huh* She's terrifying! The "lipstick" around her mouth is at best a disturbing sign of insanity, at worst, the blood of those whose brains she's eaten! And those eyes! Freaky! Two differently coloured eyes! One dead and the other infected red! That fig gives me the Heeby-Jeebies! I love it!

Okay, I almost like these figures. Why are they cyborgs though. :wacko: Very nonsensical stuff like that is alright for things like Ninjago in my book, but I don't like the idea of 30s cyborgs...good thing I was only planning on updating Johnny Thunder & Co.

Yeah, Quinton Steele's torso would be useful for making a revamped Johnny Thunder.  Minifig designers must've gathered inspiration from good old Johnny when designing Quinton.  :classic:

:drool: Ah I love these figures. Especially the female fig, as she doesn't actually look like so many other female figures in the past. And the leader is extremely slick.
Oh and the Zombies set.  :laugh_hard: From what I can see it's great!

I want these sets now!!  :distressed:

I really like how they gave the female a bad-megablocks scar, females in lego are usually portrayed as girly-girls.  Well, minus the 2009 pirate female.

I agree! I'm glad we're finally seeing a woman with some battle scars! She looks like she could really hold her own in a fight, and a far-cry from the Princess' of the castle line (not to mention the damsels in distress featuring in themes from the Agents to Ninjago)! I'm glad Lego's adding diversity to their cast of female characters.  :classic:

Me too!

I reckon we'll have two zombies and a witch doctor. It looks like the witch doctor will stand in the crypt casting spells to raise those two zombies from each of the graves. I think we'll also get a monster hunter with a vehicle too. Wasn't there a picture a few pages back of a big red truck running into one of the zombies?

I'm guestimating that it will be around £40.00. I'm basing this guess on the price of the Lego Batman Funhouse which (I think) was an exclusive set with four minifigs.

I might be wrong as this is all speculation :classic:

I wasn't really interested in the theme until I saw the video and the minifigures presentation). It got me hooked. It has quite an Agatha Christie's atmosphere.

The batman set was a licensed set so this should retail for less, im thinking between 20-30 pounds.

If Agatha Christie was a monster-fighting cyborg, that is.

'ghostmind' where did you find this ?
The box art looks much better than the pictures we all saw from the toy fairs earlier in the year. :wink:
Those Zombie heads would be handy for Lego to produce The Winchester ? :wink:
Perhaps a second wave they could put an inn ? :wink:

Well, the new picture has me convinced, there's officially no way I can be without this one. As an added bonus, the zombie figs would look great attacking that Haunted House set we got a picture of a while back... Or any modular, for that matter.  :devil:

Looks awesome! I'm guessing probably around $34.99? That was the price of the store exclusive Dino set. Though of course I'm hoping for cheaper.

Is it just me or does the Female Zombie's dress look glow-in-the-dark? *huh*  Or maybe it's just wishful thinking. @ghostmind: where did you get this picture?

Amazing as that would be, I think it's just the lighting. Looks like the spider is definitely glow-in-the-dark though!

Amazing! Although I'm a bit disappointed we have another driver and not a New Orleans style voodoo priest. After seeing the box I think it will retail at around £30

I'm so excited about this series!
