    Thanks for the tips. Here is my current collection (forgot to add the Coral parts!)

    Trying to work out how to upload images... only allowing ridiculously small (max 20kb!) never posted images beforehand.

    Off the top of my head ‘Mera’ from one of the Aquaman sets, she’ll give you legs assembly and torso and arms in DTurq. Pretty sure The Ron Weasley from the new HP astronomy tower set has a DTurq torso also. Only minifigure with coral that I can think off is ‘Kitty’ from one of TLM2 sets, but only hips and torso I think. Been delayed on posting pics, will try to get these up tomorrow :)

    Monochrome Minifigures

    Okay, so no pics as of yet (one day all of my work will be done and I can get to the fun stuff, but it isn't today!) but I have now finished collecting the parts for most of the currently available colours. I was originally on the fence about whether to wipe parts, but after testing Brasso and Quixx (and seeing how beautifully Quixx works, no smell, no scratches), I have decided to wipe any printed parts and then replace them with 'purist' parts as and when they become available. I will post some pictures tomorrow, but I now have all parts for the following colours: Yellow Bright Light Orange Orange Red Dark Red Magenta Bright Pink Dark Pink Dark Purple Dark Blue Sand Blue Bright Light Blue Medium Blue Blue Dark Azure Medium Azure Light Aqua Lime Bright Green Green Dark Green Sand Green Olive Green Dark Tan Tan Reddish Brown Dark Brown Dark Orange Medium Dark Flesh Flesh White Light Bluish Grey Dark Bluish Grey Black Pearl Gold I also have all currently available parts for the following (full minifigs not yet available) Lavender Coral Flat Silver Pearl Dark Grey Yellowish Green Light Flesh I'm no expert, but I have purchased all new parts, and together with parts from my own store I have tried to keep costs down by buying the fewest minifigures that together combine into the most complete monofigs, and would be happy to share this info with anyone interested.

    Hi BrickHat, tgere was with Brasso, but didn’t notice anything with Quixx. It was the smell, and potential for discolouration that also put me off the former, let me know how the Eucalyptus oil goes... should have some pics to post soon.

    Update: I just tried both Brasso and Quixx, and can definitely recommend the latter. A little longer to work, but no smell, and leaves the plastic untouched (I used the cloth provided in the kit).

    Monochrome Minifigures

    Hi All, Long-time Lego collector, newbie to the world of monochrome. Will post some pics of current collection/parts, have found the whole brasso/quixx discussion useful, tried brasso once and while it worked a treat I wasn’t a fan of the harsh chemically smell that seems to have been absorbed into the part... am going to try quixx next before I commit to whether I am going full purist with my collection. I am normally purist OCD to the enth degree when it comes to lego, however I think I’m coming down on the side of “removing prints is not a ‘illegal’ move, but a restoration to the original pre-printed part” with it not being an ‘unofficial’ product or bootleg of any kind. That’s how I’m feeling today anyway. is it just me or does anyone else get a great amount of pleasure looking into which hair/headgear accessories would go with each colour? also... is that a dark turquoise torso and arms on Ron in the new astronomy tower set? Might be cheaper than Mira? keep it up peeps ;)

    Not always, they can jump about a bit, often sets can be delayed or take longer to be released (Betrayal on Cloud city is a good example of this, it was several numbers behind many previously released sets).

    I'm in the UK also... I made the decision a month or two ago to bite the bullet and buy a few packs on Bricklink for Europe (cost me about 50 euro each including postage. Was able to keep one and sell the others to allow a few others to get them at a cheaper price than the scalpers on eBay. I would do it again as I do not believe that they will ever become available in the UK.

    Good call, called my local WH Smith and they've put aside a box for me! Apparently another retailer broke the embargo so they did too, not sure who it was though.
  14. Would be good to see Jabba though right? It would be nice to get a new version of the fantastic bigfig from Jabbas palace.
  15. If the main droid in the trailer is DD-BD then lego’s version in the KRMF is VERY different, unless it has the ability to retract its head and limbs into its body! Also, if the lead antagonist is Moloch then there’s been some significant changes there as well. Poor lego, they’ve made some very cool molds and prints based off - what appear to be - outdated characters... I hope I’m wrong.
