LEGO needs to hire @Robert8 we would finally have some amazing Collectible minifigs.

Believe me, you and almost everybody else here have given Robert that complement... :grin:

Another excellent series.  The wraith, Anubis, and tombstone are my favorites.  A lot of details and the head prints are fantastic.  The knight, marionette guy, muse, and herald are also really good.  Shower time guy is pretty funny.  Great job keep up the good work.

Thank you so much for your kind words

 

I wasn't sure about including Joan of Arc as a minifigure, because of the religious context, but what the heck. 

If TLG ever releases a Joan of Arc minifigure, I don't think they would use her coat of arms, so it won't be that obvious

Hello Robert8, I occasionally checked this thread but recently made an account. This thread is probably the only thing reviving my interest in non-licensed cmfs as they are very few nowadays. I just want to say that all of your ideas are amazing and well-done and have an extra layer of creativity and lighthearted that make them stand out. I collect minifigures and have spent a great deal of time thinking of possibilities and so it's cool to see some ideas I've thought of before come to life in this thread with your spin and also see figures I never would even considered. These ideas for cmfs are a highlight for me and I would certainly buy all of them :excited:

My favorite designs for all series include the Castaway, Ghost Boy, Homebound Man, Piñata Boy, Clocktower Guy, Alchemist, Samba Dancer, Ghost Bride, Ocean Warrior, Little Witch, Pirate Empress, Undertaker, Bartender, Unikitty Cosplayer, Circus Acrobat, Adventurer, Snowman, Showertime Guy, Venusian, and Giant... 

But of course the list goes on and on and I can appreciate the time you spend on each of the designs. I wish I could list more but these are the ones that really standout to me. One minifigure I would like to see made is a tuba player, with a big sousaphone. :classic:

Hopefully this isn't too flattering but good designs need recognition and I hope this thread will remain relevant for a long time.

Well done, as always, Robert8 - Love the Venusian, the Marionettist, the Wraith, the Muse, Camp Boy and the Turkey Suit Guy the most, but would definitely need the Pilgrim Woman for that awesome turkey. All of them would be most welcome on my shelf! Another great series! I don't know how you keep doing it, but, well, keep doing it! I love these!

I really need to follow your ideas more because they're amazing. Both N and O have had a good number of figures I'd love to have on my shelf, as opposed to the six or so (overall) from the last few license waves. I wish lego would switch back to the kind of creativity you've shown in these.

Keep up the amazing work!

Thank you for your words. Hope you'll keep around here on EB

By the way @Robert8, unless you already have such an archetype in the pipeline for an upcoming future Series, might I suggest a female counterpart to your Series Ñ Adventurer (i.e. an Adventuress). :classic:

 

So almost like a minifigure based off Lara Croft? I would love to see something like that. But I'm still holding out for a Sousaphone Player, whether in this ideas thread or an actual figure (one can dream, right?)

Sure, that's one direction Lego could go with the archetype, though I'd personally prefer staying within a Pulp-inspired timeframe for such a CMF. For instance, something more in the vein of Athena Voltaire would definitely be more up my alley! :wink:

Now, as an alternative design for the archetype, I wouldn't at all mind seeing something rather akin to this instead:

I do have a female adventurer listed, but she is more of a Lara Croft /female Indiana Jones :classic:

SWEET!!! :thumbup: :sweet: 

P.S. Unless you wish to keep it a surprise until then, will she be more modern like Lara Croft, or more period-set/pulp like Indiana Jones? :shrug_oh_well:

Like Lara Croft/Nathan Drake, but in a Indiana Jones period/setting. At least that's what I have in mind, because I haven't made her yet

Holy heck I'm late for these but this series is astounding! The DUPLO Alien Boy and Tombstone are spectacularly well designed, and the Mobile Suit Guy is one of my favorite of your concepts so far! I echo what @Digger of Bricks said about the Venusian fitting right in with the Systarians.

 

But every time I look at the herald I can only think of

Thanks! 

Mobile Suit Guy is one of the most out-there characters I've ever presented in this thread :laugh:
