The Dreamzzz Nightmare King will be available soon with some magazine.

Yes, indeed! I understand January or February in the UK where I am, and January in Germany and Poland.

It’ll likely be £4.50. I reckon that’s a fair price. It may seem expensive compared to CMFs but at least with the magazine minifigures, you know what you’re getting. And it’s cheap compared to the going rate for this minifigure on Bricklink (though the current price is likely to come down with this magazine’s release).

The price will go down, and has already started to do so - the minifigure is avaiable at Pick a Brick since last month, however not sure if many of them got shipped already - and now it is paused anyways. But the Magazine is still the best option to buy it as it beats the pick a brick price by a good amount.

Finally getting another color for the small bird in yellow in a friends set.  I would like to see brown, green, black, even purple would be nice.

I found some Series 25 at my local Wal*Mart. There are three great Medieval figs.

Nice. Did you randomly pick or use a method to get the ones you wanted

Can you post some more pics? I am curious about the back prints for the barbarian and goatherd, as well as how the goatherd's torso looks on a Forestman. Also, does Basil not have printing on the sides of his legs?

Yes what method did you use to separate them?

unless Lego start selling boxes of 12. 

Would be interesting if they did, all the LAN members that got the set for review got sent boxes of 12 after all, and those boxes where for sale in some shops in Scandinavia for Marvel CMF so why not sell them online as well:shrug_oh_well:

For someone living in Europe, what's the best way to buy a full set of 12? I heard Lego is selling sets of 6 in the States on the brand site. But not in Europe. I get the move to cardboard, but Lego seriously needs to give us a reliable way to get figs now that bags are gone. I'm willing to buy full sets if that's what it takes, but they aren't even giving us that option.

I found an untouched box of CMF series 25 at Walmart today, in Maryland. I got some goat herders, bat knights, and barbarians. I used a pocket scale with 100% success. I think if you were trying to get one of each it would be harder though, it helps that these figures are on the extremes and not in the middle of the weight range. It can be hard to tell apart the goat herder and bat knight by weight. Here are the weights I used: https://jaysbrickblog.com/reviews/lego-collectible-minifigures-series-25/

One other thing I'll note is rough box position. I found the bat knights at the back of the box on the upper layer, and the goat herders around the middle of the lower layer (little towards the back maybe). The barbarian was somewhere on the upper layer but I don't remember exactly. I'm not sure how consistent this will be though, and once a box has been touched bets are off. Keep an eye out for train guys, they weigh more than goat herders but not quite as much as Jay's weights in my experience.

I've developed a different strategy for searching for specific characters.

It's possible, albeit tedious to check inside the blind boxes to identify what Minifigure it is. 

You stretch open one of the top corners a bit extra, hold the box above you and peer through the hole while shining a flashlight into it. You can shake the box to get a new piece by the lower corner, and use the colors/shapes to identify the minifig.

It's easier with lighter colored characters, but you can definitely see specific colors and printing. I used this strategy for the boxed marvel Minifigures, but I imagine it will work just as well with the new series.

I would love to see the funny looks from the other shoppers in the store. But I do like that you don't have to buy, and have on you, a $10 scale to make sure I get the right $5 toy.

Someone on Reddit showed that they used a small camera to look through the corner. I don't want to install some shady app on my phone, so I ordered an otoscope. I'm curious to see how well this works. I hope it doesn't require stretching the hole.

There are a lot of crappy otoscopes on Amazon. I found one where all of the top reviews were very obviously written by ChatGPT. (The "in conclusion" section is a dead giveaway!) I haven't gotten mine yet, but from what I can tell, Doctor Mom is the brand you want to buy for home use. It's a little pricier than the scale, but if this works, it will result in a 100% success rate.

We have a leak of a new female pirate for BAM (as well as return of Lion Knights).  That could be very reusable for multiple time periods and maybe even genders!

I read about knight helmets and swords

I hope the pirate female torso could be used in some historic themes

And maybe we have a pirate three-corner hat

It's fine to have again something else than citizens and mixed parts figures

Looks like we are getting Gorilla's in the city sets.  Can't wait to see what other animals or birds we get.  

Ninjago wave for summer has another large dragon set.

Also now getting a red panda and the old Tiger is coming back to the city sets.  Some great new animals to populate our builds.  There should be some more animals in the jungle sets but no more info yet.

Well hopefully with that set, we will see white horses back on PAB.  Fingers crossed.

Apologies if this is a no-no on the EB boards, but I have repurposed some of the Series 25 minifigures or parts to MOC a few fantasy ones here.

The white one from Marvel is there now, but if it is a new one we might end up with 2 white for the first(?) time 😜
