    LEGO Ideas - Steamboat Willie

    I'm happy! I missed my chance to get Mickey and Minnie during the first CMF series, and now they're being released as my favorite of their incarnations. Do you suppose we'll get the parrot and goat that the ideas creator added?

    Hoo boy; truth be told I haven't given it much thought for a while. I might get it back up and running, once I reevaluate my selections to make sure I don't use any concepts you beat me to. But I'm afraid I've long since lost access to adobe illustrator, so if I do show them they'll just be pencil and paper drawings.

    I really, really love this series! Favorites of mine are the Android, Supervillain, Alien Tracker, and Zombie Woman.

    A Man In Black and a counterpart to one of my favorite of your CMF designs? This is gonna be a Good series. Also, bringing some more bios for ya: Pizza Man "I've talked like-a dis for six years-a! I cannot-a even remember how I use-a to talk!" The Pizza Man is a plain fellow who had a rather odd job description; a mascot for a local pizza parlor, his manager thought it would be funny if they made him go the extra mile and basically act like a big old Italian stereotype 24/7. The kids loved it, but it kinda put off most of the adults, especially the Pizza Man himself. It isn't very sensitive, he sounds ridiculous, and the mustache is really itchy. When the pizza shop shut down, and the Pizza Man was free to pursue whatever career he desired, his endeavors tended to crash and burn, since he was still subconsciously speaking with an outrageous fake accent. It seems only time will tell if he will be able to shake off these bizarre habits... Mrs. Santa "Did you remember your mittens? Keys? Spare plate of cookies?" Mrs. Santa is Santa Claus' doting wife. When Santa watches for niceness and peace in the world, she's content to keep the North Pole warm and make treats for her husband and their diligent Elven employees, of warm clothes, or hot sweets. In recent years, she's been more and more worried about Santa forgetting important tools and other things on his most important trip, and always makes sure to make extras and spares of everything he may need along the voyage. Though it might seem annoying, Santa knows her heart is in the right place. Super Kid "Up, up, and away!" The Super Kid is something of a handful. Utterly infatuated with the concept of superheroes and superpowers, he's been trying all he can to get some of his own. Whether it be playing outside in a lightning storm, Looking in caves or crashed spaceships for powerful artifacts, or begging the Wizard to teach him the secrets of magical power, rest assured his parents have a lot on their plate to deal with. For all of his rambunctiousness and disregard for safety, he truly wants to be a hero, and knows what that means; when he's not trying to get his superpowers, he's doing all he can to rescue cats, aid ladies in crossing the street, and doing his best to help those who need it the most.

    eh, it's only been over a month since these came out (I'm really sorry, I've had a lot on my plate with school and the holidays; here we go): Slime Monster "Maybe...you...be...friend?" It's not hard to trick or fool the Slime Monster; after all, he was born yesterday. After escaping the lab that created him, he's been on the loose, roaring and rampaging through anything in his way...at least, that's what the lab says. In reality, hes been wandering through the city alone, learning new things and trying to make friends. He truly means no wrong; all he wants is a little companionship. But since he's heard those lab reports calling him a monstrous beast, he's been wondering--is he really a hideous monster? Orc "Eh, it's alroight oi suppose...prob'ly shouldn' say i' in fron' of da boss, do....we don' even 'ave dental." This Orc is one of many, a rank and file soldier in the armies of the Chaos Lord, working to spread entropy and terror over the land. Ask him about the job, and he'll tell you it pays the bills, and in the end, that's what matters, right? Probe a little deeper, and you'll find he is deeply unsatisfied with this career choice. From a young age, he's been little more than cannon fodder, sent into battle against the greatest of warriors with little regard for life or limb. On top of that, the food is always stale and he only gets three days vacation a year! He's practically rooting for the other side to slay the Chaos Lord, so he can finally pursue his dream career as an actuary.

    hOLY HECK I love these! The Slime Monster, Orc, and Spooky Doll are among my favorites of your designs, and the Pizza Guy, Super Kid, and Mrs. Santa are delightful as well! I'll get to the bios on them soon as I can.

    This is the best Christmas gift; I love the design for Lady Justice! Can't wait to see the rest of the series, and hopefully write some bios.

    Lego Overwatch 2019 - Rumors & Discussion

    Ah. That's very good news for me. Anyway, I'll definitely pick up the Reinhardt/D.Va set; maybe Dorado as well. Still holding out for a Junkrat&Roadhog set, though...

    As in December of 2018 or 2019? I'm still not solid on the year 'categories'.

    Actor "..." In the golden age of film, this Actor's unique style of wacky slapstick, a youthful and relatable persona, and a subtle air of melancholy and altruism made him one of the most beloved performers of his time. A great achievement, especially considering he did it while almost never speaking a word, on-screen or off! If his acting school taught him anything, it's that actions speak louder than words--a philosophy he adheres to at all times. But, when the times comes that something important truly needs to be said, you can count on the Actor to stand for what he believes in, and deliver a great speech that moves people to tears for generations to come. Red Card Guard "This is bad, this is bad..." The Red Card Guard is in deep trouble. The Red Card Queen recently ordered several beautiful red rose bushes, with instructions for the Guards to receive and transplant them in a aesthetically pleasing manner. However, when they arrived, this poor soul was the first to realize that, for whatever reason, the roses they got where white! The Queen is famous throughout the land for her terrible temper--if the Red Card Guard doesn't fix this mix-up, and fast, it'll be off with his head! (Which, granted, isn't very deadly to a minifigure, but it ain't exactly a pleasant experience either) Calaca "C'mon, c'mon! We still have so much to see!" Natural gateways between the minifigure world and the Monster Realm don't open up often; usually only one or two a year. But that doesn't stop the Calaca! Ever since she heard of the wonders of our world from the Festive Mariachi, she's been preparing for as many chances to visit us as she can; preparing her dress and decorations, and plotting the openings of gateways as precisely as possible. Always emerging on Halloween or the Day of the Dead, it's generally easy for her and her musical friend to get around to see and do what she wants--which is always a lot! There will likely be more to come, but for now...

    Another fantastic series! It's good to have you back. Standouts for me are the Calaca, the Mutant, Chaos Lord, Puppet, Maori, and Actor, though this whole series is incredible. And @Eggyslav you can have the Chaos Lord; you'd likely do a better job than I anyway

    I love that Calaca! Can't wait for the new series!
