This is what I was thinking. And then, the CMF Elf can be, wait for it D&D players... a half-elf!
Not originally a D&D thing: Elrond and some others in Middle Earth already are half-elves.
Nice idea but I still can't stomach the idea of fleshies for any demi-human or human-like race (wizard, elf, dwarf or hobbit). After all, in the films (if not the books), all had the same skintones. So if LEGO humans are yellow, the other Tolkienesque races should too.
