  1. LEGO Minifigures - LEGO Batman Movie Series 2 Poll

    For me, my vote went to Black Canary. The design of this elegant classy lady is pretty spot-on. I like the light blue outfit and especially her screaming expression. That was the top factor for me. The close runner-up is Tropical Joker, Swimming Pool Batman and Soccer Mom Batgirl.
  2. Thanks and I amended my review/sentence. I aware the ballerina skirt is not new piece, but I had actually meant the roller skates in new colours. I didn't realise the sentences were connected. Thanks for pointing out the other two and I had also cleaned it up.
  3. Dear Eurobricks Community, I am very pleased to share with all of you my latest review work on the LEGO Batman Movie Series 2 CMFs. This is my first review installed and there were many glitches here and there, which I will not elaborate. Nonetheless, I am glad I had sorted this review myself and bring this review to a reality after 18 days of its official release. I hope this review is of interest to our community and please do leave your thoughts for sharing in this review. This is quite a lengthy process for me to finish since last Sunday. Thank you and enjoy the review. WhiteFang

  5. Hello everyone, I am very pleased to present my very first 2018 Eurobricks reviewing adventure and it is always great fun to begin with my favourite theme featuring the new LEGO Minifigures - LEGO Batman Movie Series 2. First of all, this review came rather late for me and I am very glad to be able to purchase this locally to continue this Eurobricks tradition. In a blink of an eye, this journey had lasted for almost eight years. It surprised me greatly to know that I had completed 25 exhaustive LEGO pictorial reviews including this current review, solely for the coverage of the LEGO Collectable Minifigures Series / LEGO Minifigures Theme. My greatest appreciation is to my beloved wife, Belun for supporting and reminding of my LEGO reviewing passion and stood by my side no matter what. I hope even though this review had came rather late without any surprises. I sincerely wish this review could still interest you. I sincerely hope I am able to upkeep this tradition for as long as I am able. Without further ado, let me share this traditional coverage with all of you. Following Eurobricks tradition for all of the past Collectable Minifigures polls once more, it started with a humble beginning of Series 1 followed by Series 2 in the year 2010 and it continue to spread like wildfire with another three strong waves of minifigures craze in the year 2011, putting Series 3, Series 4 and Series 5 in an excellent harvesting year. In the year 2012, we celebrated with Series 6, Series 7 and recent Series 8. With the year 2013, we have the Series 9, Series 10 and Series 11. In the year 2014, we seen the LEGO Movie Series, The first LEGO Simpsons Series and Series 12. In the year 2015, we had the Series 13, LEGO Simpsons Series 2 and Series 14. In the year 2016, we seen the Series 15, LEGO Disney Series 1 and Series 16. In the year 2017, we have the LEGO Batman Movie Series, Series 17 and LEGO Ninjago Movie Series. Beginning of year 2018, I would like to invite the Eurobricks Community to cast their votes is for this new LEGO Batman Movie Series 2 poll statistics as well. Name: 71020 LEGO Batman Movie Series 2 Theme: LEGO System / Collectable Minifigures / The LEGO Batman Movie Year: 2018 Minifigs: 20 unique minifigures Price for 1 box: USD N.A, GBP N.A, EURO N.A, SGD $390.00 Price for 1 packet: USD N.A, GBP N.A, EURO N.A, SGD $6.50 Resources: Brickset, BrickLink An image of an 71020 LEGO Batman Movie Series 2 [Reference 1] [Reference 2] [Reference 3] [Reference 4] What could possibly lurk within these mysterious sealed packets? The LEGO Batman Movie has successfully continued with the second CMFs sequel The LEGO Minifigures- Batman Movie Series 2 was scheduled for worldwide release on 1st January 2018. It came quite a pleasant surprise to see the LEGO Batman Movie, getting their own CMFs for the second sequel, as compared to the previous other two LEGO Movies. This opportunity also allow more licensed characters to appear in this avenue at an affordable price instead of seeing more LEGO Batman Movie sets releasing in 2018. In this LEGO Minifigures - Batman Movie Series 2, there are 20 minifigures altogether and among them, there are 2 assorted wacky Batman design outfits, 5 Batman's allies, 6 DC allies and 7 Batman's villains including some from DC universe. I was not prepared to see many bizarre minifigures design in this series and this is certainly the only channel to ever release such minifigures as stand-alone designs. This will also allow collectors to increase the licensed minifigures' count. Furthermore, these minifigures design will be based on flesh-looking skin tone of different variants instead of the traditional yellow minifigures. One thing, I do notice about these 20 minifigures, is actually only a large number of them are actually associated with the LEGO Batman Movie. The 6 DC allies (including Black Canary and Apache Chief) for example, was not seen in this movie, which kind of gave me a mixed vibe that this series is a half Batman Movie and DC allies CMFs combined. I am more of a huge fan towards the regular LEGO CMFs design unlike specialised licensed minifigures like this release. It's not as if the specialised licensed minifigures are unappealing, but it's just my personal preference to it where I can have more integration with the regular minifigures. Who knows, perhaps one day, the LEGO Minifigures could expand into Marvel Comics or Star Wars license in the near future. I am impressed with the LEGO CMFs Design Team who have worked closely with the LEGO Batman Movie Design Team to come out with such large numbers of designs which are referenced from the movie and above. I am more curious on how the design team manage to reach the remarkable 20 minifigures total and the consideration for the selection factors. I am not exactly sure what's in store for the future of the LEGO Minifigures Theme as we wildly speculate. I hold extreme high regards for the LEGO CMFs Design Team and I strongly believe they will continue to surprise us in many endless possibilities in the coming future. IMPORTANT: Please note that the naming for all 20 minifigures that I have use for this review are official TLG minifigures naming for the LEGO Minifigures - LEGO Batman Movie Series 2. Front view comparison with Batman Movie Series 2 and together with all available LEGO Collectable Minifigures Series 1 to 17, LEGO Movie, Simpsons 1 and 2, Disney Series 1, LEGO Team GB packets, DFB Series, Batman Movie Series 1 and Ninjago Movie Series I have placed all 26 different minifigures packets as part of my overall comparison. From the above aerial image, you can see an impressive transformation of LEGO CMFs Series over the long course of time. It is so delightful to be able to see all of the assorted designs series at one glance. The LEGO Minifigures Theme is a force not to be reckoned with and remain a very strong contender in the TLG product range since 2010. 26 different releases including regional exclusives are not easy to replicate the craze in many LEGO CMFs followers. So, have you been still following the CMFs craze since Day 1? Take a closer look at the following images. This is the front view of the LEGO Minifigures - LEGO Batman Movie Series 2 packet, while this shows the back view of it. This is an image that shows the back view comparison for all of these packets. Take a closer look at the LEGO Batman Movie CMFs together side by side, with just exact one year apart. This LEGO Batman Movie Series 2 had a new twist. It's no stranger that CMFs had actually done specially printed minifigure baseplate as they had once done for Team GB and DFB series. Those CMFs series are very exclusive to certain regions unlike global release. For the very time ever, the LEGO Batman Movie Series 2 owned their very iconic Batman looking baseplate which can be expanded to use to house your other related LEGO Batman minifigures. To the regular readers of my LEGO CMFs review, you probably notice that this particular paragraph has been mentioned numerous times, because I personally feel this is the most effective method to acquire the highly sought after minifigures without taking any drastic measures. This is the 'same' golden rule, which has been mentioned in my previous reviews. If you are intending to collect the precious and hard-to-find minifigures, please hone your skills for the touch and feel method. It is an important skill to acquire to locate the minifigures that you want without spending too much money to randomly acquire them, especially so when you are intending to buy large quantities. Your sole mission is to memorise and remember the minifigures assortments for each of the specialised designs. Isolate and identify the most unique accessory or accessories for the particular minifigure. From there, eliminate the torso, head and legs and feel for the other parts. The sole disadvantage of this method is that much time would be wasted if the minifigures that you are looking for have been taken from the box. You might also end up with sore numb thumbs after feeling them. Front view of the LEGO Minifigures - LEGO Batman Movie Series 2 promotional poster Back view of the LEGO Minifigures - LEGO Batman Movie Series 2 promotional poster As you flip to the back of the promotional poster, you will notice a set of simple instructions to guide LEGO fans who are not familiar with the fixing of fabric cloth and minifigure parts correctly. The other half is promoting the usage and integration of movie scene builder online. I believe the password is the same for all. 1) Friends are Family Harley Quinn Without further ado, let's bring out the first minifigure design from the LEGO Batman Movie Series 2 and is none other than Friends are Family Harley Quinn. Harley Quinn was originally known as Dr. Harleen Frances Quinzel. She is completely devoted and loyal to The Joker. Harley Quinn has appeared in 9 different variants from past official sets and this does not include the new 70921 Harley Quinn Cannonball Attack. Friends are Family are the terrific ending for the LEGO Batman Movie of good versus evil where they are seen performing the hit song - Friends are Family. The Harley Quinn is part of the Friends are Family line up and is very accurate to the movie reference. The main characters, including Batman, Robin, Batgirl and Joker can only be found in this 70922 The Joker Manor. Parts assortment The parts assortment are slightly above average. The ballerina skirt was seen previously seen in the Ballerina and the dual roller skates with a touch of gold and silver is done in these new colours for the first time. The hairpiece is the same as Nurse Harley Quinn and what I love about this minifigure the most, is their dual facial expressions. You can view more of the glittering details from the back view and side view. Don't worry, we will get you out Please enjoy the specially made Tara's Ice Cream Let's do a joint performance together Special performance for Batman and Joker 2) Friends are Family Alfred The next-in-line featuring Friends are Family design, is none other than Alfred the Butler. He is Batman's sole guardian, caretaker and a very important person in Batman's life after the passing of his parents. With this minifigure, you can technically assemble the full suite of main characters for Friends are Family. The well coordinated white tuxedo glittery outfit fit well for a formal partying setting in a large group. The design is very accurate to the movie reference, where Alfred took out his solo guitar jam by rocking the stage. Alfred Pennyworth has made 7 minifigures appearances so far. Parts assortment The parts assortment are average. It come with the same electric red guitar from Gong and Guitar Rocker. The white bow tie is the same as before, and what I like is the glittering skirting around his waist. You can see more of the glittering details from his back view and side view. Rock and Roll Performing Duo Be our guest performer Alfred, ready the music, please 3) Clock King Clock King is part of the featured within the Rogue Gallery (which I am very excited about to see more of the villains appearing in 2018 CMFs and sets). This is not the original looking Clock King, but it was given a makeover to make it rather uniquely appealing even though I never understood why he need to wield two black spears. I wonder if is just a quick attempt to increase his accessory count. Clock King is originally known as William Tockman. He found out that he had a terminal illness and feared that nobody would care for his sister after his passing. He begun to steal money using his knowledge of schedules and clock-based gimmicks. He was eventually defeated by Green Arrow. During his prison tenure, Clock King found out that the diagnosis was completely wrong. Parts assortment The parts assortment are slightly above average. The clock varieties featuring different times are printed all over his torso and legs. That was a very amazing print on its own. Append to that point, what I like most is the usage of the actual gingerbread man headpiece for the clock illustration of front and back. The green cape and two black spears are welcoming accessories. You can view the outstanding printing details from the back view and side view. Time for coffee break You are my robotic minions Fight the traditional way Join our league of evil 4) Professor Hugo Strange Professor Hugo Strange is the next villain which was also featured in the Rogue Gallery. He also made a camo appearance in the LEGO Batman movie. Professor Hugo Strange was a well respected scientist until he became obsessed with the identity of Batman. He managed to discover Batman's true identity but never share with any other villains. He creates well-thought plots which revolve around genetics and mine control to take down Batman. Often enough, those experiments are rather inhumane and he will resort to all measure in order to attain his objective. Parts assortment The parts assortment are below average. The chemical formulas flask which contained the green and purple viral were seen in previous CMFs. The short light grey beard is included to show Hugo Strange facial feature. The prints are very bland and reflect generally in a scientist outfit. You can see the rest of the minifigure in simple detail from the back view and side view. Which chemical formula? Take this green formula Work for the crazy wacky criminals I am working on these trial solutions 5) Mermaid Batman Unlike the first series where we see a total of 5 wacky Batman costumes, this time round we are given just two new designs. The Mermaid Batman is a new design in the classic mermaid minifigure representation. The mermaid leg was first appeared in the 2009 Pirates and was used in just a few occasions, right after Pirates of the Caribbeans and CMFs Mermaid made a change to this classic looking mermaid legs. I am pleased to see this design even though I could prefer it to be a Merman than a Mermaid. The key difference could be the torso design where the two pearl shells are covering the *ahem* muscular torso. I wish it doesn't have that feature and that will certainly make it more warrior looking. Parts assortment The parts assortment are slightly above average. The mermaid design in black is nicely done including the trident. The muscular looking mermaid torso even include Batman's utility belt. You can also view more of the minifigure from the back view and side view. You can see his real appearance upon removal of his mask. My swimming date Clash of the Sea Creatures No one is coming to our rescue 6) Swimming Pool Batman The last Batman wacky design is the Swimming Pool Batman and posed close similarities in terms of the natural aquatic surroundings with the Vacation Batman. From what I observed, this is definitely one of the most popular characters which is going to be a challenge finding in the wild. All thanks to the beautiful looking dolphin which had so far appeared in this minifigure and the 60153 Fun at the Beach. I am not intending to purchase the 60153 set and this CMF design had served an excellent way of getting this dolphin in my water creatures collection. Hope you have luck sourcing for this highly sought minifigure. Parts assortment The parts assortment are above average and the large part of it is attributed to the dolphin. The red buoy is similar to the rest which was used by the CMFs lifeguards. The fleshie muscular torso is going to be very useful to do modification. I am slightly disappointed that the minifigure head is Batman design as compared with the use of a versatile minifigure head which is seen in the Vacation Batman. You can notice his detailed appearance from the front view, back view and side view. You can see his real appearance upon removal of his mask. Beach or pool? Lifeguard equate to saving lives Enjoying the beach front 7) Tropical Joker Part of the vacation line up, is something which I did not expect is the inclusion of Joker. When is the last time you seen the The Joker - Clown Prince of Crime ever take a holiday vacation, I suspect not. This design is done very nicely with the direct preference of what Joker could look like when choosing his attire for a beach holiday. The jokey rubber-duckie float which look rather toxic and dangerous looking. He is armed with a suspicious looking ice cream and innocently looking camera. You would be certainly wondering if he would like to take his mind off and enjoy his holidays with an unexpected group of companions. I am very confident this minifigure is equally hard to find in the wild. Parts assortment The parts assortment are above average. The camera and ice cream are some nice minifigures' accessories but what really distinguish is the green looking rubber-duckie float. The Joker also come with dual facial expressions and you need to be more attentive in order to notice the subtle smiles. The overall printing design is excellent especially on the arms where the playing cards' symbols are reflected differently at both ends. You can take a closer look at his details from the back view and side view. Best of Friends Ice cream for both? Holiday or prison? 8) Vacation Robin Dick Grayson also known as Robin is ready for his holiday vacation as well. Probably because the studios felt they worked too hard and sent the main cast for a beach vacation. Robin is accompanied with his trusty cassette stereo player and the lovely vanilla ice cream. Robin with his magnified spectacles, is also quite a popular looking minifigure with his iconic red and green outfit. Those are some nice attires which can be easily used on other flesh minifigures. Parts assortment The parts assortment for Vacation Robin is average. The minifigure's head with the 'wow' looking expression is something which I am fond of. The red shirt with duckie patterns is also one of my favourite design point. The ice cream and the stereo cassette player were seen previously. Dick Grayson had made three other appearances. You can take a moment and examine the details from the back view and side view. Different outfits of Dick Grayson I love vacations Let's have a mashup music party I could bring both to Gotham City 9) Vacation Batgirl We are also pleased to see Batgirl in her vacation outfit. The identity of Batgirl is established to be Barbara Gordon, niece of Commissioner Gordon. Batgirl is don with her surf outfit and is very fond of surfing. I am certain she is ready to take on the waves with her personalised Batgirl surfboard. She had made eight appearances in LEGO sets and CMFs. Parts assortment The parts assortment for Vacation Batgirl is slightly above average. The bright yellow surfboard with the Batgirl logo is a nice touch. It also include the utility belt. The minifigure print for the head is sharp looking and what intrigue me, is the use of the hairpiece. It came as a surprise as two separate minifigure's elements. You can take a moment and examine the details from the back view and side view. Different outfit of Batgirl Passing through Surfers' Paradise 10) Vacation Alfred Last but not least for the Vacation line-up, we are welcoming Alfred the Butler in this compilation. Alfred takes it slow and easy. He enjoy his glass of martini and sit at the sandy beach basking at the sun. I am not sure why Alfred choose this design because it does make me feel like a prisoner uniform. This is quite a below average design, but probably will entice fans to get this minifigure to complete the Batman vacation line up. Parts assortment The parts assortment are below average. There are nill new accessories. The accessories count include the transparent glass, cherry and white bow ties. I am not overly impressed with this minifigure design. You can see more of the details from the back view and side view. What do you think of this? Different outfits of Alfred Is this reception ready? Batman Family and Best Foe 11) Soccer Mom Batgirl As much as I want to think Soccer Mom Batgirl is Batgirl or Barbara Gordon. I could tend to think she is really a generic looking Batman fan club member. I had a moment and wonder if she could be an alternate version of Catwoman, largely due to the black pointy hood. This is a very nice design and I could think is going to be challenging to find this in the wild. I wonder if she could be a merchant selling Batman's merchandise? I got no idea of her origin but she sure is an interesting design which I had not seen it in the movie. Parts assortment The parts assortment are above average. Love the printed dollar bills or some sort coated with Batman symbol which may end up as a Batman souvenir. It also include an utility belt and a nice looking black fabric cape. The dual facial expression is one of the nicest feature in this minifigure and not withholding the fact that the side prints on both ends are different. You can see more of the details from the side view (1) and side view (2). Welcome to Batman Fan Club Autograph, please! I am Batman number one fan 12) Killer Moth Killer Moth is also featured in the Rogues Gallery and appeared in the movie as well. Killer Moth is also known as Drury Walker and a common criminal. He was inspired by Batman to become the Dark Knight of villains. Escaping from his cell, he donned a moth-motif and would rescue and assist villains for a fee. Killer Moth had so far appeared in this series and the 76054 Batman and Scarecrow Harvest of Fear. Parts assortment The parts assortment are average. I am very fond that Killer Moth is given this unique space blaster which was first wield by Retro Spaceman. The design is pretty nicely done with its original bright colours. You probably won't have any difficulties to spot him in the dark. You can see the details from the back view and side view. You can also see the back printing after removing the wings. Space mercenaries for hire I am not the pesky flying moth Flying Wings 13) Wonder Twin - Jayna The Wonder Twins (Zan and Jayna) are a pair of extraterrestrial twin brother and sister superhero duo. They first appeared in Hanna-Barbera's American animated television series - The All-New Super Friends. They were subsequently introduced into the main DC Comics Universe. The pair appeared briefly in the LEGO Batman Movie during the Justice League anniversary. In this case, Jayna can transform into any animal, whether real, mythological, indigenous to Earth or to some other planet, like Beast Boy. Since she must vocalize her choice of form to assume, she must know the common name otherwise it will end as a failure. The accompanying accessories are probably for the Justice League anniversary party and I am guessing she could be the DJ for the night. Parts assortment The parts assortment for Jayna is above average. I love the purple unify outfit with its purple upper collar cape as well as those awesome printed recording labels. Those are just pure retro and a delightful moment for music fans. You can see more of the nice details from the back view and side view. Do note that the print may look similar with Zan but if you look at it carefully, these prints are different. Music recording covers 14) Wonder Twin - Zan Like her twin sister, Jayna. Zan is the other twin brother and is part of The Wonder Twins who had appeared briefly in the LEGO Batman movie as well. In this case, Zan can transform and manipulate into water at any matter state (solid, liquid, gas) and add to his mass by incorporating water in his immediate area. In the case of becoming solid ice, he can also become any form he chooses, from a 5,000 foot humanoid ice giant to a cage for a criminal to complex machinery. Parts assortment The parts assortment for Zan is average. The purple unify outfit with its upper purple collar cape are nicely done to unify them as twins but yet it encompass subtle differences between the gender. The 1x1 printed round stud in the bucket is actually Zan itself transforming into a liquid state which I think will be an useful part to decorate MOCs. You can see more of the nice details from the back view and side view. Wonder Twins Justice League gathering 15) Apache Chief Apache Chief is a native american superhero and appeared in Super Friends cartoon as well as DC Comics universe. By speaking the words "inuk chuk" (which means "Big Man"), Apache Chief could grow to unlimited sizes. In some cases, he can grows to many times the size of the Earth, making himself able to battle the Colossus, a titanic space creature that plucked Earth from its orbit. He also briefly appeared in the movie as a camo in the Justice League party. This is quite a nice design to have for your tribal settings. Parts assortment The parts assortment are average. The outstanding element could be the printed tile where "inuk chuk" is featured with 3 probable outcomes, given the last to be sabotage by a monkey. I suspect this could be a written records or some form of documentation. You can see more of the details from the back view and side view. Upon removing the hairpiece, you can look at the back printing clearly. Tribal chief meeting End game Warriors Guild 16) Jor-El I am very surprised to see Superman's distant characters being featured in a Batman-centric movie. Jor-El is Superman's biological father, the husband of Lara-El, and a leading scientist on the planet Krypton before its destruction. He foresaw the planet's fate but was unable to convince others to save the inhabitants. Jor-El was able to save his infant son Kal-El (Superman) by sending him in a homemade spaceship towards Earth just moments before Krypton exploded. I could reckon this outfit could be something similar that he worn on Krypton. I am not exactly sure what is the reference design for this minifigure but is quite a nice galaxy character to have. Parts assortment The parts assortment are slightly above average. The accessories are very good especially the nice white 'S' circular printed tile. The crystal and space armour are great minifigure accessories. I think this is a nice minifigure design and without the attached armour, you can see Jor-El in his white long robe. You can see more of the details from the back view and side view. Which version do you prefer? Welcome to Earth Protect the crystal 17) General Zod When you have Jor-El earlier, General Zod had also appeared on Earth as well in his causal black outfit. General Zod is a former Kryptonian military general and an enemy to Superman. Exiled to the Phantom Zone by his people for treason, he survived the destruction of Krypton and swore revenge against the son of Jor-El. I am sure this minifigure design is in reference to his Earth invasion but as this is a Batman universe, I wonder what he got to do with Gotham City. Perhaps a hostile takeover eventually like Batman versus Superman where he became an abomination. Parts assortment The parts assortment for General Zod are average. The printed newspaper tile is nicely done. The best thing about this minifigure is the dual facial expressions where General Zod unleash his laser eyes. You can see more of the nice printing details from the back view and side view. Arch enemy Reading the news headline Leaders of tomorrow 18) Doctor Phosphorus Doctor Phosphorous is also part of the rogue gallery and the last of Batman's enemy in this series. His real name was Doctor Alexander James Sartorius. He is soaked in radiation due to a crack in a reactor core which caused him to get "five million slivers of (radioactive) red-hot sand" into his body. Nuclear reactions caused the silicon in the sand to be booted up by one proton each, to phosphorus. Burning forever, he starts a quest for revenge against the people he blames for his terrible fate. One could not imagine the suffering and pain when it was first inflicted by accident. Parts assortment The parts assortment are average and accompanied by flame accessory. I was secretly hoping that Doctor Phosphorous could be glow-in-the-dark. However, the design of this minifigure is more towards bright neon green. You can take a moment to examine the fine details from the back view and side view. Get away from me I don't need a space blaster Batman combined villains 19) Black Canary The next Batman ally in DC Comics universe is none other than Black Canary. This is my favourite character in this series and is largely due to her classic feminine light blue attire. Her real name was Dinah Laurel Lance and she fight crimes by using her ultrasonic scream. She wields the noise with precision to crumble objects and incapacitate foes. A devoted student of martial arts and other methods of hand-to-hand combat. A powerful female heroine not to be messed with. Parts assortment The parts assortment are average which largely made up of the microphone and the microphone's stand. The stand is a simple built to allow performers to do their musical concert as well. What I love about this design the most, is actually the screaming expression which is part of her alternate appearance. You can see more of her printed details from the back view and side view. Upon removing her hairpiece, you are able to examine the back printing clearly. Live music performance Who will be my shining knight? 20) Black Vulcan The last DC comics ally which aid Batman is Black Vulcan. He is a mysterious superhero who we do not know its origin. He holds the ability to control lightning. He can also travel at the speed of light and beyond, allowing him to break the time barrier, and travel through time. He is also part of the Super Friends series as well. Parts assortment The parts assortment are average and point to note that it include a pair of newly designed lightning blasts. The overall built is similar to the Flash but please don't confuse with both of these characters as they are not the same kind or hold the same abilities. You can see more of the details from the back view and side view. Are we twin brothers? Against all odds General Statistics for 71020 LEGO Minifigures - The LEGO Batman Movie Series 2 Below is the combination which I have received from my box, 3 Friends are Family Harley Quinn(s) 3 Friends are Family Alfred(s) 3 Clock King(s) 3 Professor Hugo Strange(s) 3 Mermaid Batman(s) 3 Swimming Pool Batman(s) 3 Tropical Joker(s) 3 Vacation Robin(s) 3 Vacation Batgirl(s) 3 Vacation Alfred(s) 3 Soccer Mom Batgirl(s) 3 Killer Moth(s) 3 Wonder Twin - Jayna(s) 3 Wonder Twin - Zan(s) 3 Apache Chief(s) 3 Jor-El(s) 3 General Zod(s) 3 Doctor Phosphorus(s) 3 Black Canary(s) 3 Black Vulcan(s) Based on the above distribution, I have managed to achieve three full complete sets of 20 one-of-a kind minifigures each. This is the third time in LEGO CMFs history, where three full complete sets and nil spares can be achieved. This will make lots of collectors very happy, by simply buying a mint box and shared among your friends and families. There is nothing much to analysis since all of the minifigures are equally distributed. I wonder which minifigure will be the most popular and hard-to-find for you guys. It's very hard to predict which one will be popular, but my best guess is Swimming Pool Batman, Mermaid Batman, Tropical Joker, Soccer Mom Batgirl and Black Canary. These mentioned minifigures are in my guess-list of hard to find in the wild. What about your listing? I had also arranged the distribution photo differently and reflect my top 3 favourite minifigure in this new series. The LEGO Minifigures - LEGO Batman Movie Series 2 will be launching on the 1st January 2018 (worldwide) To conclude, the LEGO Minifigures - The LEGO Batman Movie Series 2 has once again done a great job to continue leverage and dazzle on the movie last year. This is a specialised LEGO minifigure theme which is targeted and designed for the movie and included new characters and designs which is out of the movie but related to the LEGO DC Comics universe such as Black Canary, Apache Chief, etc. I am having mixed feelings with this batch of release, largely because I think is due to repetitive characters in just mere different outfits. The biggest push factor for me to acquire is more of the association of DC Comics license characters and the love of Batman. The whole series stand out pretty well as a group, but as an individual designed character, it might be less appealing despite of 20 minifigures designs. That's just my afterthought when I finished dabble with it. I had intentionally stayed out to view available images online to keep my mind fresh and relevant on my own personal thoughts. I am excited for the series but some of the designs did not really stand out to me and glad that was just small factor of it. Now with a total of 399 minifigures released for the entire Series 1 to 17, the LEGO Movie Series, LEGO Simpsons Series 1 to 2, Disney LEGO Minifigures, LEGO Batman Movie series, LEGO Ninjago Movie Series and the current LEGO Batman Movie Series 2, not including Mr. Gold which unfortunately I do not have the blessings or lucky stars to own it till this date, and the special exclusive Toy Soldier and Zombie Skateboarder minifigures that can only be obtained through The Minifigures Character Encyclopedia books respectively. At such accelerated releasing rate, I wonder if anyone can keep up with the display shelving area as we factor to accommodate space for future expansion. For myself, I have already done some display for my own CMFs and made provision for at least 3 series to be displayed side by side at the baseplate. I hope to share my display set up when things are more or less ready at my new home. Meanwhile, I really wonder what exciting new series will TLG have for us. Only time will tell and let's be patient about it. I am confident that it will be worth the wait as always. Please note that the The LEGO Batman Movie Series 2 do not contain the placement of LEGO spare parts/accessories. This was practiced since the start of LEGO Collectable Minifigures Series 3. Summary review Playability: 8/10 (New Batman villains, allies and greater varities can be integrated across past and present LEGO Batman theme.) Design: 8/10 (Very detailed design and some good all-rounded printing and dual facial expressions with decent amount of new accessories for the 20 minifigures.) Price: 6/10 (Although the price now stablise at SGD$6.50, but it is still quite expensive to maintain the CMFs collection especially if you intend to buy multiples.) Overall: 7.6/10 (Ready yourself for this brand new licensed minifigures theme and do collect them all, especially if you are a LEGO Batman DC Comics fan.) I gave it a "4" based on my Review Score Card. What about yours? I hope everyone of you enjoyed reading this simple review of mine. Comments and Criticisms are welcomed.

  6. Thank you Itara. My sincere thank you for organsing these fun games.
  7. Dear Massimo, Yes, I am intending to do a review on the Batman CMFs Series 2. It will take longer than planned as I only managed to start photo-taking yesterday. This is my own personal traditional reviewing project which I aim to complete. I am glad you are looking forward to it and do stay tune in the coming days. WhiteFang

    Dear EB members, The upcoming CMFs review is delayed due to technical glitch at the far end. I had not received or able to work on it yet. Hence, it will be much delayed than expected now. This is quite unfortunate and is not within my control. This is an interim update and I hope to share my traditional reviewing coverage in due course. I hope... WhiteFang

    I don’t foresee having it in 2017. Unfortunately, it will take a little longer more.
  12. REVIEW: 21312 Women of NASA

    I really hope the stock level will resume to normalcy and hope to see it on the shelves longer than just a few months of release. I believe there’s no criteria and more of the thoughts can be found in her original LEGO IDEAS submission. NIce AC! Real nice to be able to see and interview the lady behind this original set design. Do you have the interview coverage being shared anywhere? Would love to read about it. On a side note, I miss visiting the Brand Store at Flatiron.

  14. Hello everyone, I am very pleased to share this latest LEGO IDEAS 2017 set. This brand new 21312 Women of NASA is the 19th LEGO IDEAS set since this unique theme started back in 2012. I am very glad to buy this latest LEGO IDEAS set since the last one I reviewed were the 21108 Ghostbusters and 21307 Caterham Seven 620R. I had bought a few others previously including the Yellow Submarine, BTTF, Doctor Who, etc, not withholding that I am still saving up for the new Fishing Store. This one was exceptionally interesting and fits my impulse budget. I thought I could do a review to share with our Eurobricks Community on my recent purchase. Without further ado, let me share my thoughts on the second smallest LEGO IDEAS set ever till this date, after the 21110 Research Institute. Name: 21312 Women of NASA Theme: LEGO IDEAS / Licensed / NASA Year: 2017 Pieces: 231 Minifigs: 4 Price: USD $24.99, GBP 19.99, EURO 24.99, SGD $44.90 Resources: Brickset, BrickLink An original box image of the 21312 Women of NASA Back view of the original box image of the 21312 Women of NASA Share the dream of the new frontier in space exploration through this new LEGO IDEAS set It's no easy feat for Maia Weinstock (20tauri) to be able to gather 10,000 supporters on the LEGO IDEAS platform within such a lightning span of time. It was approved by the LEGO Panel and the final product was recently launched on 1 November 2017 worldwide. This set design is specially dedicated to the modern history of women involving in space exploration, science and engineering through the vivid simplistic presentation of vignette to tell a story of very accomplished professional women in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) to NASA history. You may refer to this page to find her welcome thoughts in the instruction manual. The original design featured a total of five Women of NASA and the only woman (Katherine Johnson) was excluded in the final product. The remaining four women and their associated concepts were re-looked and designed by LEGO Designers (Gemma Anderson and Marie Sertillanges) together with Maia Weinstock. This is truly an original and inspirational product and certainly appeal much more than the 21110 Research Institute. The notable difference between both sets could be the choice of licensed minifigures in flesh tone versus traditional original yellow minifigures. The content of the sealed box By slicing the box's adhesive sealed labels, you are greeting by this opening box welcome. The sealed box come with three un-numbered mint packs and an instruction manual. After building the set, these are the remaining spare parts. The best thing about these packs are the incredible printed tiles/bricks without the need to apply stickers. The thin instruction manual contains summarised information on the Women of NASA bibliographies. The entire building content These are some well designed female minifigures Before we begin with building the rest of the vignettes, we had a pleasure to view the four extraordinary Women of NASA (from left: Margaret Hamilton, Nancy Grace Roman, Mae Jemison and Sally Ride). These are very impressive well designed minifigures especially on their facial expressions. I believe there are all unique minifigures' heads with alternate facial expressions as well. There are also back printings for all these minifigures. I personally felt these flesh minifigures brought a sense of premium to it, also not sure if is probably due to the fact that they are real-life people or attributed to the fact that they are NASA licensed (in some sense). This approach does make it very appealing to minifigures' collectors and also increase the varieties of customisation on their torsos and heads. Margaret Hamilton is a computer scientist and the large amount of great work was due to her achievements on developing the guidance and navigation system for NASA's Apollo Moon-landing program. The software was the key to allow the Apollo space programmes becoming a success. Nancy Grace Roman is a astronomer. She was largely involved in the planning and development of numerous orbiting satellites. She is most famous for her involvement in the Hubble Space Telescope which was launched in 1990. Mae Jemison is an astronaut. She is the first African-American woman to travel in space when she went into orbit aboard the Space Shuttle Endeavour in 1992. Sally Ride is a physicist and an astronaut as well. She is the first American woman to blast into space on-board the Space Shuttle Challenger in 1983. The completed built of Margaret Hamilton's build features a stack of book elements, representing the books of listings of Apollo Guidance Computer (AGC) The completed vignette for Margaret Hamilton is focusing on the academy environment where she is focusing to make a breakthrough in AGC. Those stack of books are piling up to aid her research on the formulas. There is also a coat stand and a white wall background, which is very similar to her original design. It's a pity that we don't get a stack of actual LEGO books but those 2x2 tiles help. This is the completed built without the minifigure on it. The completed built of Sally Ride and Mae Jemison’s build features a launchpad and Space Shuttle Challenger with 3 removable rocket stages The completed vignette for Mae Jemison and Sally Ride are accompanied with the impressive Space Shuttle - Challenger ready for take off. With tight selection process for shortlisting of potential astronauts and intense rigorous routine, their training paid off and they are on their way to space. An opportunity where few had successfully ventured. The built of the Space Shuttle is simple and yet elegant. You can remove the rocket stages before it fully orbit into space which is back by powerful rocket thrust. The concept is similar to the original work, but the Space Shuttle for the official design is way nicer. This is the completed built without the minifigure on it. The completed built of Nancy Grace Roman’s build features a posable Hubble Space Telescope The completed built for Nancy Grace Roman is actually a micro built and representation of the Hubble Space Telescope. The original design was nicely done but what real impressed me is how LEGO managed to follow closely to actually create an unique printed brick for the planetary nebula. The Hubble Space Telescope was equally impressive with those printed panels. I got to admit that the built stayed true to the originator. This is the completed built without the minifigure on it. A researcher expressing interest to join their team Just one day, I dream to be like this astronaut These are my favourite space characters A drawing inspiration featuring these 3 builds illustrating their scientific areas of expertise To conclude, this set is an above average LEGO IDEAS set. It contain four awesome well designed female minifigures. It has three completed vignette builds, nil stickers and more importantly printed bricks/tiles and name tiles. The pricing for this licensed set is very well priced, affordable and value-for-money. In Singapore's case, I don't see this set in LEGO Certified Stores (LCS) anymore since the first week of its release. Still awaiting for the new stock to come in and I am actually tempted to buy a second set in view of the minifigures and printed parts. These vignette make a fine piece of table display holder in your office on or your writing table. I find it quite inspiring and refreshing to see this set. Lots of positive experience from me and what do you actually think of this? Do you also fall to its charm like I do? Summary review Playability: 7/10 (Not much playability but you can take it apart and form mini scenes and interactions/role-play with one another.) Design: 9/10 (Good vignette designs for all three and excellent printed parts as well.) Price: 10/10 (Price is very reasonable at SGD$44.90 SRP and I rarely give full marks on pricing.) Overall: 8.7/10 (Very worthwhile to acquire for its originality and inspiring builds.) I gave it a "4" based on my Review Score Card. What about you? I hope every one of you enjoyed reading this simple review of mine. Comments and Criticisms are welcomed. Pictures can be found in My Flickr.
