The new Hungarian Horntail doubles for a generic wyvern with little or no modding:

Yes!  I'm excited for that.  I already plan on picking up one of the new Expecto Patronum (75945) [or maybe two] today.

I'm using the patronum as a snow spirit stag companion for my ice elf maiden (seen picture centre here without the stag).

My non-AFOL wife came home with the patronus set last night. She's slowly coming around to the brickside! :grin_wub:

I looked her patronus over and I think we'll start seeing normal stags soon. Possibly even does since the antlers are a separate piece of soft rubbery plastic anchored in the head and could easily be replaced by a blank filler piece. I'm stoked about the possibilities of the mold!

That's awesome!  Is that your created character or a CMF?

I had the idea - as have many other AFOLs - that LEGO might recolour the stag as Santa's reindeers. Unlike the large cats (panther, jaguar etc), the stag mould has space for a 1 x 2 brick and plate. If you remove the plate, you can then put a horse hitching to a sleigh. I wouldn't use it for Santa myself; I would have it as a mount for Thranduil:

Thank you! :blush: It's the body, cape and 'shield' of Elsa from the Disney S2 CMFs with the CMF elf maiden's head and a minidoll's hair (with ears I recoloured). The sword's hilt is a lightsabre in white with a BrickForge blade.

Stag mounts for sure!

My second thought last night was mounting my barbarians on stags for some truly wild cavalry.

For Santa, Sven works OK.

However, he is a bit too cartoonish for Thranduil to ride!

I don't think this warrants a new topic, if so please forgive me. I found a few familiar parts in the Build-A-Minifigure tower at the LEGO store in Castleton, IN. There was a shell bra torso as well, but my daughter took off with that one.

I found 3 Frightening Knights and shields to add to my army.

The match simply could not be any better. This REALLY raises my hopes of a Lion Crusader CMF or DTC set (a castle wave may still be a pipe dream).

I also snagged a few Knights, an opportunity not to be missed! Now if only they'd stock the Wolfpack Dark Archers... I'd devote a substantial amount to BAM.

Those are really nice hauls I will have to check out the 2 local stores here soon.

While I think we'd all like to see that here, I think they are experimenting with BAM as a way of releasing parts that many of us want but do not fit within the current range of themes. Anyway, wonderful shield design, I picked up four already! :grin:

You know... I'm totally fine with that. Bricks we can get, if that's the way we get to source heraldry, accessories and printed pirate/castle figs then I'm on board. It beats getting nothing by a nautical mile.

It will be very hard to monitor what sells well like that. I would imagine experiments with small bags of pre-defined parts, like the xtras bags, would be a better experiment as they can easily track sales.

Gah, all the cool useful parts are everywhere else. My store in Glendale, CA doesn't have any :cry_sad:
