Got my first lot of 5 today through Tesco Direct. Started off on a good note with the evil robot, who's just as jolly as they say. First time I've had a robot-arm torso, so that looks like it'll be fun to re-use, as will the fantastic head print. Straight after that came Santa. Santa is Santa. A decent fig, certainly, but with no re-use potential beyond being... Santa. Really not looking forward to getting another one.
Third bag was the Actor. Dear lord, if he's not everything I'd hoped for. The torso and leg prints are beautiful, the ruff is fantastic. The only thing letting the actor down is the rather basic hair, but still, I am not complaining. Give me more! More ruffs!
After that was the Vampire Bat. Bleh. Not my favourite, but the head print could have some value elsewhere. It's odd how these figs have the most innovation in minifig shapes since they were given arms in the first place... but they're still not all that exciting. Last was the Diver, and he's just fun personified. The helmet is great, and helps show off what an appropriate head print he has. He's having a wonderful time down there on the ocean floor! Best holiday ever!
Sadly I didn't get a Conquistador, but I'll be getting more of these for sure. I'm dead chuffed with this series so far. So long as I can get a couple more Conquistadors and Actors I'll be a happy chap.
Cuusoo Medieval Travelling Theatre!
