Another jewel....

40226 - Birthday Buddy

That's an atrocity! A failed attempt at cuteness. The turd in pajamas thing is funny, but this thing reminds me of horror clowns like Pennywise.

Agreed on all points. Lovely packaging, though...

Yes, the packaging is lovely, but the vampire looks like he has fangs coming out of his nostrils. I'm not the right audience, though. I generally hate these types of things.

I don't see anything wrong with the vampire:

'The Teeth' - check

Pale skin - check

Slick hairstyle - check

Long black cloak - check

Bat mode - check!

Moreover, plenty of facial expressions you can do. Plus a nice box.

You mean there are a few different positions for the eyebrows. That's about it.

Don't forget about the eyes!

Yeah, I guess they can be rotated, but I still don't think that makes for "plenty of facial expressions."

The Vampire is to be released on September 1st right or is it October? Must say that I really like the build.

Never mind, September 1st it is.

That's clearly a moustache, and not fangs, right?

Looks like fangs to me. Goofy-looking fangs for a goofy-looking model. He maybe could've stood to have one plate's separation between his nose and fangs, but I don't think it's too confusing for kids to understand.

Maybe someone saw it and thought it was a Halloween Witch

hahaha

I would be that someone. I actually did not know it was supposed to be a pilgrim until someone pointed it out! The vampire looks like a vampire at least. Goofy, but it's still possible to tell what it is.

These are getting worse and worse somehow. :/

Does anyone know what ever happened to that Birthday cupcake set btw? Thats the only one that seemed worth buying imo.

So I guess there's no seasonal minifigure sets this year?

No. It seems to alternate between "vignette year" and "character model year", and this year there don't seem to be any side-sets with minifigures in them.
