    But on the other hand - does that grilled plate really tips the scale and you decide not to buy the set because of it? I'm not trying to defend Lego, I too hate when budgetary cuts are obvious, but this is probably the smallest problem of this entire wave. Honestly I'd rather have the entire castle section, including walls and roofs, made with those plates if it meant we'd be given a fully molded Fluffy, similar to dinosaurs. Speaking of creatures, I'm not so keen on the basilisk either. It absolutely should've been dark green and that middle section, while I understand it's meant to recreate the original, it just looks ugly. I will try to create the whole body with just those bent tubes, whatever that part is called.

    Yeah, that's a better word

    How so? If by that you mean nobody is trying to stop him, that's because... there's nobody around to stop him. Almost every episode shows multiple people and creatures flee immediately upon his sight, often warning others as well.

    I'd love that too, just not sure if Looney Tunes Show is that recognised (maybe, I don't have TV rankings memorised). Pepe... After giving it some thought, I don't think Lego would ever make him. (I'd love to be proven wrong, though), not as long as they make these with kids in mind. I think it's about type of play Lego is promoting, and surely "relentless romantic pursuit" doesn't fit the type. Regarding possibility of Elmer in potential second series, I'm kind of afraid that it's going to be his What's opera, doc? appearance, which would eliminate the need to give him a rifle. It would be awesome in itself, but at the same time suck so hard without having his original, hunter version

    Which is a good thing... in a way. Don't forget, first Space Jam - as much as I like to rewatch it once in a while - is not that good of a movie. Under the gimmick of Michael Jordan meeting Bugs Bunny, it's just another family sports movie like Mighty Ducks or Angels in the outfield. Plot wise the original was very much by the numbers, so Space Jam 2 being by today's numbers makes some sort of sense. And at least I'm glad it's the Ready Player One and Wreck it Ralph numbers, not the Smurfs, Alvin and the Chipmunks or the recent Tom and Jerry. The only alternate Daffy we need:

    slightly off topic, Space Jam 2 trailer just dropped

    Wow, just wow. They could've saved so much money if they just made him one specialised mold (not really of course, if unfelt the packet will still sell) Are Roadrunner's and Daffy's heads triple-molded? I was afraid the eye printing will look pale, but these look fabulous! Wonder who else will get such a treatment? From the look of it it could be Sylvester, at least I assume the nose might be too bulky to be printed all around. Also Lola, but I thing it's possible her hair and ears are a separate piece. On the down side, Marvin doesn't have alternate expression The only character with a minifigure head and it's not dual sided, real shame. That solidifies him as one of my least favourite

    Honestly I think he turned out much better than I thought, there's definitely cuteness factor, the lack of neck seems to be working really well, maybe the exactly right size of head, two milimeters in either direction would make it weird, maybe the fact he's so casual about holding that huge hammer. I'm quite surprised with myself, I actually think he looks better than Marvin I don't know why but something doesn't sit right with him, and it's not just the lack of plastic skirt piece. My ranking as of now, it might change when I get them next month: 1: Sylvester 2: Daffy 3: Porky 4: Taz 5: Wile E. Coyote, head is near perfect but I would add black line for his mouth, without it he looks like the 3D rendition which was in Looney Tunes Show 6: Bugs, lack of tail piece brings him down 7: Lola 8: Petunia, both girls are well done, just don't care too much for them. 9: Speedy, would be in top 3 with white printing on the tail, but it's very jarring as it is now. 10: Tweety 11: Marvin ... ... 1045: Roadrunner

    Well of course it had to leak when I was at work! Stupid work, wasting my time for puny payment... I find the series slightly underwhelming. First of all: where the HELL is Elmer J. Fudd? Lego/WB, please explain yourselves! Petunia instead of Elmer, this is beyond my comprehension... Bugs doesn't seem to have tail piece, for shame!. Also 'Duck season' sign should be a no brainer. What is this flat tornado? I know it would be a rather large part for CMF, but surely it's not impossible to create a fitting piece? This thing is just plain lazy. Speedy's tail, why isn't the front painted white? It's possible as evidenced by Scrooge McDuck, definitely some corners were cut here. Marvin has a cloth skirt after all, meh. That's not the Roadrunner, that's a Streettrotter. Screw this guy, I'll have Coyote hunt Bugs, it's been done in a few cartoons. On the plus side, damn those molds look absolutely terrific! I think they've translated pretty well to a minifigure form, all things considered. There are definitely things to nitpick, like rather poor selection of accesories, but I'd stil be happy to get all 11.

    Lola? There goes my dream of having only classic characters, but it was bound to happen. Tweety and Roadrunner as a full minifigs? It was to be expected, but they can't realistically look good aside from their head molds. Petunia? Makes at least a bit of sense, but obviously we'd rather have someone more famous, like Sam or Foghorn. The rest is as expected, still excited for them and I hope we'll get a look at them soon.

    Daaaaaamn, that was really unexpected, thought the D2C info was set in stone. I'm OK with the "demotion", although I would've been quite pleased if it was on the same level as that giant Castle chess set, which now is crazy expensive. I kinda wonder now if the finale Hermione and Ron are in it, and the Fluffy set depicts their first encounter (the harp indicates otherwise, but perhaps the retailer wanted exclusive figures in their set - small chance, but who knows)

    I can't stand the thought of Roadrunner being in minifigure form, it'll just look odd at best, but most likely awful. Tweety might look decent, in one short - Hyde and Go Tweet - they made him big, but it's very doubtful Lego would go with this one-off version. The only "out of scale" character I'd be okay with is Speedy, due to his already humanoid proportions. It's hard to predict, with Disney CMF it was Disney themselves who enforced the "one character in a pack" rule, but we just don't know if WB did the same and for now we can only hope they didn't. Luckily the series is only a month away, with an official reveal probably within 3 weeks. The wait is killing me!

    That cat head mould is glorious! I also think it would benefit from pupils, but it's not a deal breaker, when the expression is just so perfect. The WHAT now? I must've missed it, I'm scrolling down on IG but can't see it. Oh well, maybe the full fig will leak eventually

    Not until this piece appears in dark bluish grey. I guess it should be possible to use a cloth skirt, although from the ones that are usable, CMF Cho's seems to be too long, ang Spooky Girl's can be hard to come by

    Technically it is green, as you can see top and bottom of it are indeed green making it its base color. What I don't understand is why haven't they given her a skirt (cloth or this short one from Trolls, both would be good) and white legs
