Happy New Year 2020!

Is there is a better way to start a new year than having another custom CMF? I think not. So, here is Series R!

 

 

NOTE. I'm playing to be The LEGO Group here, so I'm taking the new pieces from Series A to the Advent Calendar as already introduced pieces.

 

Spoiler

OMG Robert!!! There's just too much to love with this Series! Totally worth the wait!!! *oh2* 

For me, this Series' standouts have to be Mother Goose, that Gunslinger, the Park Ranger with that adorable fawn, Frankenstein's Bride, and of course, a most perfectly-done Archaeologist CMF!!! :thumbup: :grin:

Magnificent, @Robert8! The Monster Bride is one that I'm baffled hasn't actually been made yet. The Park Ranger would be an instant chaser with that fawn, and likewise the Shepherd with the black lamb. I love the Centaur's hair, which would work equally well for a feral elf.

The Oni, I notice, has blue skin. Can we expect a red one in the future?

Oooh lovely, just lovely.

My favourite has to be one of the penultimate 4 (Going from the list in the post now the leaflet) but I can't single out one cause they're all great.

Say Robert, given that the Gunslinger's hat/hair combo is a fedora rather than a typical cowboy hat, do you perhaps have ulterior motives for it down the road? Maybe you have that one female counterpart to the Adventurer you've mentioned earlier in mind for it? :shrug_oh_well:

Thanks for the coments. 

 

And yes. The Treasure Hunter will reuse that fedora+hair combo :classic:

Great series Robert! My favorites are Cupid, Monster Bride, and Retro Wrestler! 

But really, I am part of the crowd that has wanted a centaur minifigure since the dawn of time, so that minifigure is easily one of the best you've ever made. Even the hairpiece and distribution are good :thumbup:

My only critique is that many figures this time are very specific, like from stories. In the future, will there be more generic unnamed characters, or will they continue to be referencing something?

Wow, looking good as always. And just when we heard about the actual Lego centaur. This is exactly how I would imagine the mold to look like. I also love the beefeater. He looks so interesting.

Also  (and I might be a bit late) but that Advent Calendar was amazing as well. Makes me wish Lego would actually do something like that.

Fawn:wub: Happy that you included several animals this time :thumbup:
And the Sheppard with a sheep is long overdue in Lego CMF :hmpf:
The centaur lover body looks exactly like i think the Lego one will look like :sweet: How much smaller is it than the normal horse?

Most of your figures are actually more interesting than most of the actual figures happening in the series.

Just curious, by "Series" you're referring to the Collectable Minifigure theme as a whole, right?

Thank everyone you for your feedback!

I'm glad to see that after 4 years there is still interest on my work :classic:

I used the current horse body as reference. It's around 3 plates shorter in terms of height. And 1 stud shorter in terms of lenght

Hmm Interesting I never thought about it this way. I guess Stoyteller, Monster Bride, Harlequin and Shepherd are the ones who fall into this category. 

I'd say Series S is similar.... I think. There are some characters like from novels and stories like these one.

You've done it again, Robert! This is an awesome series with something for (almost) everyone. I have been wanting a Monster Bride and the Centaur since the dawn of the CMFs, and these look amazing, easily the standouts for me this time around. The Retro Wrestler ... wow, you gave me something I never even knew I wanted! And the Physicist is perfect, too! I want EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. of these. Amazing work, per usual.

Can TLG just hire you to design the upcoming series?  I have liked all your series better than the last oh, 10-15 from TLG!

@Robert8, that's amazing! Why don't you apply at TLG as a designer?

I would definitely go for the Archaeologist, the Monster Bride, the Physicist, the Gunslinger and the Storyteller.

Thanks. I can't because I'm not a professional graphic designer. This is just a hobbie. Maybe in my next life or something
