The weakest thing about this series: the daredevil.. I like the hair in a new color, but I'm not really impressed.  Not a big fan of tennis, either, but at least with this one you can MOC a couples doubles tennis match... not that I really would want that.
True, I do agree with you but the white cap is something which I will like to get it for medieval purposes and to make up for it, the dual printed expression and the hairpiece are very decent.

This series definitely has the most number of "wanted" (although I always want them all for completeness), although, like the last series, although I do want a few Aztecs, there aren't any that I want to "army build" with.
Same sentiments as well.

As a long time complainer about the distribution of the minifigs, I have to thank TLG for making the space marine and evil knight have 5 of each in the case.  Although I liked series 6 more this is the best release just because TLG finally learned what army building is all about.  

I do add, don't get any misconceptions about which minifigs will fetch the highest price on Bricklink.  The Space marine followed by the knight will still likely be the 2 most expensive figures. The small percentage change in numbers per case will not make up for the people who want to collect hundreds of those figs.  But it is still a step in the right direction!
DaleDVM, I also noted the new distributions is a major improvement from the previous series, so they are aware of it and trying to make the new changes allowing the army builders to get the most and best out of the 16. No doubt, that the prices on BL might be higher, but with the new additions, it might help to ease a little on the demand side. So, whatever it can be done for now, it is a commendable improvement on TLG end for Series 7.

The veil of the bride is rubbish though. When played with, it falls of easily. Impossible to reattach for children, holes of the veil tear easily.

Ya, man. Mine's almost worn out now. That's why I'm keeping another sealed in its packaging. Waiting for groom to show up :)

I really got no idea what did you guys do to the 'Bride'. I agreed that the veil drops more often due to the weight of the veil which is much heavier as compared with the ones from the wedding set. The material used is clearly different and in this case, this is made up of cloth. The hole of the veil is meant to hold it in place upon stationary position. I don't think we can abuse the cloth as often as we like to have. Do remember that even LEGO cape/robe, also worn out overtime after handling and playing.

Well, I certainly don't abuse my Bride. But as mentioned, the veil comes off easily and even it's been only a week or so, the constant dropping off and putting it back on has visibly taken its toll on the cloth. Also, as you mentioned, it's made of cloth. So fingers touching it so often will also make it look dirty after some time. By the time the Groom gets produced, she'll be a filthy looking partner! LOL!

Agreed, the kilt is a major pain to put on. I think I need about three more fingers to be able to do it easily.  :tongue:  Other than that, I'd say Angus is pretty nice minifig!

I don't have all of them yet, but so far, I'm pretty impressed with this series.

Thanks for the review!
I am losing a little bit of interest in this though. LEGO seems to be releasing these a little too fast to keep up. Last time I actually got into trying to collect one of the whole series was the 3rd! Anyways, thanks for the review! ;)

Just finished opening my box of 60.  Ended up with different numbers in mine.

3 Swimming Champions
3 Aztec Warriors
1 Bunny Suit Guys
4 Brides
3 Ocean Kings
4 Bagpipers
4 Daredevils
5 Galaxy Patrols
4 Tennis Aces
5 Jungle Boys
4 Hippies
4 Computer Programmers
5 Valkyries
5 Evil Knights
3 Rocker Girls
3 Grandma Visitors

So only 1 complete set!  Disappointed to say the least.

You're not the only one.  :blush: I also find the bagpiper's kilt hard to get on him. And I wish that Lego made skirts go out a little bit further, so that there's no ugly gap. (I really dislike that.)

I've done a lot of Mafia games over the years. Somehow, I haven't improved at all.

Is your CMF Series 7 comes with a 'sealed' box? It might be randomised if the box is not originally sealed.

Yeah, it was a sealed box.  I checked it over when I got it to make sure too.  Just bad luck I guess.

Hi

yesterday i had been in three diffent stores, only one had the Galaxy Patrol left. The two others had together 6 open boxes with no Galaxy Patrols. Even the Aztec was gone, i think people missmatch this like i did too. I did not want an army of them, but maybe 8 or 10 would e nice ;)

I find it very highly unlikely unless the place/source which you have gotten had managed to re-seal the original seal without causing any re-pasting by re-using the seal with careful delicate measures. I hope I am not reading too much into it but it is really very unpleasant to know that you are unable to complete 3 sets in 1 box.

All in all, it could just be bad luck.

For those of you who haven't figured out the kilt, just position it so that the slit is over the butt like so:

It looks perfect once you do that and the gap will be barely noticeable unless you're looking at it up close.
