Hello everyone,

It has been quite sometimes since I last did a LEGO CMFs review for Eurobricks. With this set in my hand, I am very glad to be back on the reviewing scene with this exciting refreshing opportunity to share with our Eurobricks Community. Thanks to our EB Ambassador, Jim for facilitating this reviewing opportunity for Eurobricks. Special thanks and mention to The LEGO Group (TLG) and my wife (Belun) for the support on this reviewing endeavor. Without further ado, I am very pleased to present my latest simple review on this brand new licensed LEGO Minifigures - Looney Tunes Series 1 which will be available worldwide in May 2021 (estimated). This will also be my 32nd LEGO pictorial reviews for the coverage of the LEGO Collectable Minifigures Series / LEGO Minifigures Theme.

The LEGO Minifigures - Looney Tunes Series 1 main colour schema is based on white background with wacky expressions around it. I am surprised that they didn't use bright orange instead, which is a typical choice for Looney Tunes branding.

What could possibly lurk within these mysterious sealed packets?

The most wacky bunch of looney characters has finally descended onto LEGO universe
51000632884_bb60d37e23_o_d.jpg
This is the first time for me to review a box of LEGO Collectible Minifigures with 36 minifigures. This new trend started with the recent LEGO CMFs release of Series 21 in January 2021. With this approach, it helps buyers to spend less at the expense of less newer designs from the usual 16 to a new 12 minifigures. However, the biggest advantage is that you are able to form full three sets per sealed box. Before I officially dive into the review, I would like to point out for my sealed box which I have received from TLG. It saddens me greatly that I am unable to present a minimum full set of 12. I did not receive any minifigure of Wile E. Coyote and I got three extras of another character which you will see shortly. I am not exactly sure how prevalent this is but I would like to get this out of the way before I touch on the various parts of this new LEGO CMFs series. Therefore, I will also not mention in greater details for this particular missing minifigure too. 

To see my childhood cartoon characters appearing in LEGO minifigure design, it is simply incredible and magical. Looney Tunes was developed by Warner Brothers in the early 1930s and I had watched most of the episodes in the early 1980s where it showed me most of the crazy and wacky side of cartoon character which defy all odds of gravity and physics. This is a complete opposite from the regular Disney cartoon characters. Every cartoon character has a special unique personality in it and LEGO was able to accurately create them into minifigures standard with specialised head mold and parts. This is also a very timely release to match with the upcoming the new blockbuster movie - Space Jam 2 (A new legacy) which will be released somewhere in July 2021. 

Please be informed that a portion of the characters' references are linked to looneytunes.wikia.com for additional background information on the named characters for better appreciation. 

DISCLAIMER: Please note the naming for all 12 minifigures that I have use in this review are likely to be official TLG minifigures naming for the LEGO Minifigures - Looney Tunes Series 1.

After you have opened all of the packet content, you will receive these spare and loose parts. As you flip to the back of the promotional poster, you will notice a set of simple instructions to guide those who are not familiar with the fixing of minifigures' accessories built and cape placement. These are some basic instructions to guide our very young builders who may not be familiar with these building parts. 
 

1) Lola Bunny
51085556016_0c5c392798_o_d.jpg
Without further ado, let's bring out the first licensed minifigure design in this series. Lola Bunny was first appeared in the 1996 Space Jam Movie which feature most of the Looney Tunes characters and she was eventually became Bugs Bunny's girlfriend at the end of the movie. She is excellent in playing basketball and is one of the strikers in Tune Squad. We had seen other LEGO bunny characters before and this is definitely a very nice representation of a licensed bunny design which is very accurate with the original character design reference. One more thing, don't ever call her "doll". 

Parts assortment
51082102548_dd5158b9b7_o_d.jpg
The parts assortment are average. The printing on the minifigure overall sports attire is very detailed with all of the all rounded printing. I am a little disappointed that the designer did not include a proper basketball accessory and instead we receive a round orange orb which can be held on the hand. I am particularly fond of her ponytail at the back of her head. the You can view more of the details from the all rounded view inclusive of front, side and back view

Can I have this bunny instead?

2) Bugs Bunny
51085651337_d7f64a7a50_o_d.jpg

If you have ever watched Looney Tunes before, then you can never forget the witty Bugs Bunny in the show. He is the one of the main characters in the cartoon and the key mascot as well. He is known for his relaxed, passive personality, mischievous trickster and his catchphrase "Eh, what's up, doc?" usually said, while chewing a carrot. It is a pity that his other sworn counterparts such as Yosemite Sam and Elmer Fudd are not included in this series. I would love to create funny chase scenes with any of the pranks that Bugs Bunny plan to pull off. 

Parts assortment
51016373715_c036efd506_o_d.jpg

The parts assortment are average with the inclusion of a common carrot. The overall design of Bugs Bunny attire can also be used to create other LEGO bunny variants for other costumed effects to pair with. Even though there is no bunnyt tail at the back, but I do not mind since it has a printed tail at the back of the torso. You can view more of the details from the all rounded view inclusive of front, side and back view

Eh... What's up, doc?

3) Wile E. Coyote (unavailable in this review) - post-review note: added on 16 April 2021, after TLG has sent this minifigure to me
51118886916_f69e56965e_o_d.jpg

I am very pleased that LEGO CEE has provided us the missing minifigure and I have taken these simple set of photos without my elaborate setup. Hence, this minifigure is a little bit short of the images but I do hope it will provide you with a complete insight on the entire series. I reckon and believe the boxes which the community receive is an isolated batch error, but I am unable to really confirm this at this point.

I am very pleased with the overall accuracy of Wile E. Coyote mold especially the design of the head. He is part of the duo which feature Road Runner as he is always up to his cunning schemes to capture and outwit Road Runner with his devious tactics which will lead to its ultimate feast. 

Parts assortment
51118794388_d214280539_o_d.jpg
The parts are pretty average. The brick built anvil is a nice touch as most of his traps are associated with that. I did wish we can see an ACME explosive instead. That will be much better. It also include a tail at the back. You can view more of the details from the side view and back view respectively. 

Parts assortment
51118794358_e7d282df5d_o_d.jpg

4) Road Runner
51016373700_73bdddeb90_o_d.jpg

The next minifigure is Road Runner after we skip the missing Wile E. Coyote. I am very excited to see Road Runner and this is my favourite character in this series. Road Runner is known for his intelligent counter-offensive actions against his nemesis - Wile E. Coyote. He is famous for his signature phase "Beep Beep" and he is fast like the speed of light. Most of his scenes are filmed in the desert and one such particular moment which must include the laws of cartoon physics. For example, the Road Runner has the ability to enter the painted image of a cave, while the Wile E. Coyote can't. I am truly surprised of how they are able to create this character and at the same time maintaining as a minifigure scale. 

Parts assortment
51085651317_62ef471a66_o_d.jpg

The parts assortment are above average and the snack are made up of common parts. The new parts included his head and tail feather to accompany with his featured hands and molded head. You can view more of the details from the all rounded view inclusive of front, side and back view

Birds of a feather

Beep Beep

5) Tweety
51085651292_03ef22911a_o_d.jpg

The next minifigure is also an iconic character - Tweety, which is a yellow canary that has a somewhat large head. Tweety appears to be an innocent, sweet and extremely gentle little bird. Don't be fooled by that or you probably end up a much dreadful fate like Sylvester the Cat. His catchphrase is "I think I saw a kitten." Granny is overprotective of Tweety and keeps Sylvester away.

Parts assortment
51016373680_1542462a04_o_d.jpg

The parts assortment are average. The built of the mallet is quite impressive with the available parts. It packs a punch and somehow shows Tweety's wraith. The overall design is very accurate with her short legs and non-featured body. Some of us do expect Tweety to be much petite and the use of the short legs which used to maintain minifigure scale is a good outcome. You can view more of the details from the all rounded view inclusive of front, side and back view.

Bonus character in Mario Course

Beware of the mighty mallet
51000632794_04b12b3934_o_d.jpg


6) Sylvester the Cat
51082102513_de08985666_o_d.jpg

The next minifigure is Sylvester the Cat and is the arch enemy of Tweety. Sometimes, he also goes after Speedy Gonzales as well. He shows a lot of pride in his devious activities and many a times, it ended up as a complete failure despite of his never-said-die attitude. The overall design is just so fantastic and I can't wait to put him together with Daffy Duck and Bugs Bunny for some hilarious pranks. 

Parts assortment
51016373675_3dbc15f229_o_d.jpg

The parts assortment are average. It include a common baseball bat. The overall minifigure design is suitable to create other feline costumed character as well. You can view more of the details from the all rounded view inclusive of front, side and back view

Who shall prevail?

Shall we run now?

Star Tunes

7) Daffy Duck
51085555936_d105d08f78_o_d.jpg

Seeing Daffy Duck in this selection simply made me felt elated. Just like how I felt about Road Runner, this is just a classic iconic Looney Tunes character which is paired up with Bugs Bunny for the many hilarious stints. Like the "Rabbit Season" signage which Daffy Duck is holding to alert all hunters in that vicinity to hunt for rabbits aka Bugs Bunny. To deter that issue, Bugs Bunny will often divert the attention to "Duck Season". This is a good childhood memory to remise about. 

Parts assortment
51082102493_b0d3ceeb3d_o_d.jpg

The parts assortment are above average. The duck tail is now in a black variant while the 2x2 printed tile featuring the "Rabbit Season" is the key accessory highlight. The overall built is simple and yet accurate, which depict Daffy Duck original design. You can view more of the details from the all rounded view inclusive of front, side and back view

This is the rabbit season

Don't chase after me
51085555911_9b0a9c305a_o_d.jpg


8) Speedy Gonzales
51000632759_c2ff2523b7_o_d.jpg

Ándele! ¡Ándele! ¡Arriba! ¡Arriba! ¡Epa! ¡Epa! ¡Epa! Yeehaw!", that was Speedy Gonzales signature phase. When you translate from Spanish, it meant Go on!, Go on!, Up, Up!". Speedy Gonzales is the Fastest Mouse in All of Mexico". He usually wears an oversized yellow sombrero, white shirt and trousers. He has a soft spot for cheese and you can't hide the presence from him. 

Parts assortment
51085555901_9529ec8dd8_o_d.jpg

The parts assortment are above average. I love the new printed cheese slope and it is very useful in MOCs. The tail is a new part which I had not recalled seeing it before. If I can wish for one more accessory, perhaps a plate to hold the cheese will be ideal. You can view more of the details from the all rounded view inclusive of front, side and back view

Festive Cheers

Give us your cheese
51082102463_4ac4f5969c_o_d.jpg


9) Tasmanian Devil
51085651192_495e099193_o_d.jpg

The next minifigure is the infamous Tasmanian Devil who leave a trail of destruction whenever he goes. His ravenous appetite is Tasmanian Devil's main characteristic. He will devours everything in sight, including boulders, trees, shrubs, and hills, all the while whirling about like a miniature cyclone in smooth clockwork. 

Parts assortment
51085651222_60ce66a4f3_o_d.jpg

The parts assortment are above average. I like the pie and drumstick as the food. The main focus is the new printed circular spinner to simulate the spinning. I have tried the spinning and it does not perform a perfect spin as you could like it to be. Nonetheless, it is a good representation. There are no significant printing on the parts except the toes. You can view more of the details from the all rounded view inclusive of front, side and back view

Battle of the Spinners

No trolls can pin me down

10) Marvin the Martian
51085651212_53b11844ca_o_d.jpg

It warms my heart to see a Looney Tunes villain appearing in this selection. Marvin the Martian is what you could imagine a Martian looks like. Well, no one had ever seen a Martian in real life too. Despite his destructive tendency to destroy Earth, he is a funny comedic character. At times, he shows an interest in studying Earth rather than destroying it. Marvin is the quietest, calmest and politest among the Looney Tunes villains. 

Parts assortment
51016373615_e57444e1c7_o_d.jpg

The parts assortment are above average. It come with a new skirt piece and a lime green ray gun. I am particularly fond of the exaggerated pair of eyes which resemble accurately of Marvin the Martian. The helmet design is also spot-on with great accuracy with Spartan culture all over it. You can view more of the details from the all rounded view inclusive of front, side and back view

11) Petunia Pig
51082102643_c3b2bf9913_o_d.jpg

I am actually surprised to see Petunia Pig in this series. She is the only character which I have vague memory of, other than she is Porky Pig's girlfriend. I had looked at her original cartoon design and the outfit matched completely with her dress and braided black hair. I have very little recollection of her and this is probably my most least favourite character to me. To me, it was not as impactful as compared to Lola Bunny's first appearance. I suspect her inclusion is to increase the number of female minifigures in this series. 

Parts assortment
51016373825_6c1f4ff18f_o_d.jpg

The parts assortment are slightly above average. The tea pot and cups accessories are welcomed and the new bright red skirt is also a nice touch. The overall printing on the attire are also very good. You can view more of the details from the all rounded view inclusive of front, side and back view

12) Porky Pig
51082102623_cae1bc722c_o_d.jpg

The last character in this series is Porky Pig and he is a real cutie. He is known for his signature line at the end of each short, "Th-Th-Th-That's All Folks!" and it is so nice to see a 2x4 printed tile with the iconic sign-off at the end of each Looney Tunes cartoon episode. The overall design is very well made and accurate with the original reference. 

Parts assortment
51016373805_d3fa5e8823_o_d.jpg

The parts assortment are slightly above average. It include parts to form the holder of the banner. The main highlight could be the 2x4 printed tile with the iconic font of "That's all Folks!". The overall minifigure attire is also well printed. You can view more of the details from the all rounded view inclusive of front, side and back view

Lovely couple

The LEGO Looney Tunes Series 1 will be launching on the 1st May 2021, est (worldwide)
51085556061_64d143a147_o_d.jpg

To conclude, the LEGO Minifigures - Looney Tunes Series 1 is an excellent specialised batch of minifigures which are very accurate to the original character reference. In fact, I did not find any glaring faults on any of the designs. All of the head molds are very sturdy and well made. The printing are very accurate and detailed. Every character in this series is an instant spot-on and anyone who is familiar with Looney Tunes are bound to praise the well designed minifigures through this sheer refreshing combination. Despite of the lack of new parts in the series, it is understandable that most of the costing would have gone to these specialised new parts. We did get two new printed plates and a new printed cheese slope. Overall, this is a damn fine series and I am looking forward to see what the rest of you could do. Of course, if you count my disappointment for the lack of Wile E. Coyote, it will not be a happy ending for sure. 

Please note that all opinions and content shown in this Eurobricks pictorial review is from 'WhiteFang' and is not meant to represent LEGO official views. It is purely stated to share as a vantage point of a reviewer.
 
Summary review
Playability: 10/10 (New licensed characters' designs from the Looney Tunes universe that can be integrated across many LEGO settings for more wacky fun.)
Design: 10/10 (Outstanding designs with superb detailed molds to represent accurate depiction of the characters.)
Price: 4/10 (Pricing does not look too friendly and I hope the price will not increase further in order to recover cost. Distribution is very unstable and I am sure there are some risks involved as well.)
Overall: 8/10 (Ready yourself for this new craze. Looney Tune fans will surely be looking forward to them.)

I gave it a "5" based on my Review Score Card. :wink: What about yours?

I hope everyone of you enjoyed reading this simple review of mine. Comments and Criticisms are welcomed.

Dear Eurobricks Community, 

I am very pleased to share with all of you my newest review work on the LEGO Minifigures - Looney Tunes Series 1, even though there are some disappointment in the distribution (for me). I hope you will enjoy reading this reviewing coverage. Feel free to leave your thoughts and comments. 

Thank you.

Great review like always!

Price is definitely on the high side, but I personally think that the design justifies the cost.

Underwhelmed as a whole. Bugs, Taz, Daffy, Sylvester, Wiley, and Porky are great. Tweety and RR are disproportionate. The other figures are meh.

Like I always say: A LEGO minifigure series ain't a LEGO minifigure series until Fangy has reviewed it!

@WhiteFang, Great review and pictures as ever. Thank you for yet another super useful minifigure guide. :thumbup:

One question if I may: What BrickLink colour are Speedy Gonzales's face, hands, feet and tail? Are they dark nougat, medium nougat or another colour? Which one? You can tell by comparing the parts you have with ones from BrickLink's colour guide and reference parts. Unfortunately, it's not easy to tell from pictures online. Dark and medium nougat are particularly hard to distinguish. I've had an idea for a MOC using one of Speedy's parts but it depends on its colour. Thanks in advance :wink:

Thank you for your thoughts. Although some could be underwhelming, but I really think it is pretty amazing to see such new molds being put into great use in minifigure context and scale.

Thanks AmperZand. Nowadays, I am not able to keep up with all of the releases, but I will do my best to continue working on it, whenever possible. 

I had placed Speed Gonzales against the BL colour guide. It is very much medium brown when I put it side by side with the BL colour guide on my monitor. If I view it as it is without reference, it is more towards medium nougat. Not sure if it helps.

Nice detailed review as usual! 

I'm impressed for the most part on all the figs, still have similar thoughts on roadrunner and especially tweety should have been extras with their counterpart fig (or at least given roadrunner different legs somehow, maybe even blue hips...) 

One concerning thing, is the lack of Wile E Coyote figs and 3 extra roadrunners a mistake? Seems a bit odd... But is also a shame its immediately become an issue :( 

Doesn't seem much point buying a single whole box if you're not even guaranteed one complete set...

Doesn't seem much point buying a single whole box if you're not even guaranteed one complete set...

I am not sure but it should guaranteed three complete sets from a sealed box. I am not sure if the boxes for the communities are the one solely affected though.

Thanks for the review, as usual

I have a question

They didnt' send you a box of Series 21 to review but they did send you one of this one?

Thanks Robert8. Yes, EB was given this reviewing opportunity. We were not extended to the recent Series 21.

Amazing review as always, Whitefang! I’m impressed at how good these look while maintaining the minifigure silhouette. Tweety in particular is just about what I would have expected without it being a microfigure.
 

The unfortunate part is the fact that the was no Wile E. Coyote in the box... I’m so sorry that happened. I truly hope that this is an anomaly and that you’re able to get a figure of him to include in your review!

My key take away from this series is that they did justice for Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck. These 2 matters to me the most because if they can't do this right, I don't care about the series as a whole. 

Now, for the missing important characters... The omission of Bugs Bunny's nemisis, Elmer J. Fudd is a bummer. I hope this is a strong indication that there is plan for another follow up. 

Thanks for the review Fangy.

Thanks for the review! On Brickset there is also a review, with also Wile E missing!! I hope it doesn’t mean they skipped him or something. 
I mean Wile E and RoadRunner are the first two figs that i really want. Then Bugs, Daffy and Porky. Then the rest :-)

It’s a shame we didn’t get Elmer or Yosemite, but especially Elmer in his hunting outfit. I know lego probably didn’t like the hunting style as they are afraid for bad critics, but i can only imagine how many people will make great mocs with it. And even animations. Give Bugs a Duck Season sign, bring in Elmer with a pop gun (that would still be kid friendly) and best series ever. So that is in my opinion the biggest miss.

Wile E Coyote missing must be a production issue

Why would they send an incomplete box to review?

 

Also, the "flesh" printed on Porky Pig'rs torso looks absolutely awful

We are at +30 series by now, and they still can't fix the printing quality. And for $5 a pop!

Thanks for the fun and thorough look @WhiteFang! Unfortunately this series is really has scant detail, so what you see on the packaging is what you get. No alternate face prints (obviously) or hidden details.

It's a shame that Marvin's plume is not detachable from his helmet. They made Rode Runner's top feathers a separate piece (probably to do with its thinness), so why not Marvin as well? As it is he's still the only figure I even half want from this series since his legs and helmet can be repurposed.

Otherwise, for me this series is extremely low in appeal.

I love the figures. I'm so happy we're getting Looney Tunes figures. But.. where the heck is Elmer Fudd? I mean, you've got Bugs in there, you've got the "Rabbit Season" sign, but no Elmer? 

I feel like Yosemite Sam should have been in there too. And Pepe Le Pew (although, we all know he got cancelled recently). 

Hopefully they are just saving some of those for a series 2, along with Foghorn Leghorn, Gossamer and others. 

I watched a LOT of Looney Tunes as a kid, but I have to admit I have no idea who the female pig is?

Considering they got 3 of each, except for 6 of Roadrunner, I'm guessing that 3 of those Roadrunners should have been Wile E. Coyotes.

I had placed Speed Gonzales against the BL colour guide. It is very much medium brown when I put it side by side with the BL colour guide on my monitor. If I view it as it is without reference, it is more towards medium nougat. Not sure if it helps. 

Thanks @WhiteFang. Appreciated :wink:

Most likely. When it comes to ensuring the right assortment, it seems like LEGO is not as good at feeling packets as AFOLs are :laugh:

It was established a while back that Lego would only be making humans with standard heads, something started with the Disney CMF. While Yosemite Sam could be done this way, Elmer would require a new mould. It works with Marvin on account of him not being human, but to have a mix of both would be a strange inconsistency. While it’s a bind to miss them, I can see the dilemma.

First off, stellar review! I love the humorous crossovers you injected into it.

Second, I really like this series and I’m someone who was never really a Looney Tunes fan. I am still unsure if I’ll try to get a complete series (if I do, it’ll be the first time I will have completed all three CMF series in one year). I’ll certainly try to get the more iconic characters though! I love how many colorful licensed figures Lego has been doing recently with this series, the Disney line, and the Sesame Street set.

Thank you everyone for your kind thoughts and comments. I am sure most of us will be looking forward to collect their favorite toons.

I could be really disappointed if Tweety is made into a microfigure. I like the way it is even though it is bigger in size. The use of small legs and the bigger head could helped on the minifig proportion.

Thanks Makoy. Everyone is just looking for Elmer. Yes, he’s an iconic toon which is always heavily featured together with Bugs and Daffy.

Yes, we are not the only community that have received this wrong distribution. TLG is already aware of this and the three spare Road Runners are definitely from the missing Coyote.

Thanks Clonie. This is what happens when we get a highly specialized LEGO licensed CMFs. It’s either you like it or dislike it. Considering that Looney Tunes is a popular cartoon (not as prominent as Disney) but it serve the right appeal for those who grew up with them watching the cartoons. For me, nostalgic hits me hard and the design outcome is exactly what I could expect too in relations to minifigure design.

I am also equally clueless on Petunia Pig as well. That is the only character which I had not seen before. I also share your sentiments for the missing minifigs design. One can only hope for a future series but I highly doubt it will come as TLG could require some form of tie in to get people into buying more Looney Tunes.

Thanks The Stud. So glad you enjoyed the various crossovers with various themes of mine. That is something I truly enjoy doing when I am messing with new minifigs and LEGO is all about playing and having fun.

Rumour is that it will come out in April 26th in the USA.

Now I am curious of the real SRP.

IMO this is the most specialised licensed series yet. Even with the Simpsons series and their single-user heads, there were still torsos and legs that could be repurposed in city-like settings. All of the other licensed series so far also offered new and/or recoloured hair pieces, some cool accessories, and/or re-usable prints and the like. This Looney Tunes series has so little detail comparatively, and most of the potentially cool mid-legs are sullied with animal-foot prints on their toes (which can be rubbed off of course, but that's taking a customising step that many people won't do).

I have fond memories of Looney Tunes growing up, but for me it's not enough to be interested in these.

I'm glad for all the people for whom this does scratch their nostalgic itch! Meanwhile I can divert the money I might have spent on a CMF series to BL or save for more enticing things coming out later.

Supposedly Petunia Pig was there since 1937 which is amazing. NO ONE knows her. I think I saw her and just thought it was Porky Pig in a dress. It's not like Daffy and Bugs have't worn dresses either.

The April 26th date in the USA is because that's when LEGO will release a few other sets, like the Batman ones.

Giving that many of the review sites appear to all be missing the Wile E Coyote it must be a production issue, likely at the end of the packing line they realised they had a whole load of Wile E Coyote left over and were scratching their heads.....

I can only assume someone filled the picking/packing bin with the wrong figure.  Not an ideal start.  Will be interesting to see who wide this issue is.  Many kids could be disappointed if this is Lego's way of making a rare charactrer!

Just a thought... with the size of Tweety's head and the special mould used on his head, I am sure it would be cheaper to make a smaller mould to make his size proportional. You know, make it about baby minifigure proportion even without articulation. I think that would work.

Personally, I don't mind the size difference but I understand why some people are upset about it ...
