    Themed CMF Series

    Great thread @Karalora - I'd personally prefer a regular mixed series as then everyone gets something they like, although there are some excellent ideas mentioned above. I was going to come up with a music one too. However, as you have just done one I'll only add that I'd love to include a violinist from an orchestra, an Elvis impersonator and a barbershop singer to the series! I'd also love to see more animals and would love to have a zoo themed series (hopefully to accompany regular City sets with larger animals that wouldn't fit in a minifigure packet). It might seem a bit boring to get a zookeeper figure every time, although they could make new hair pieces and new facial prints to make them more enticing and hopefully by limiting the variation in the minifigures themselves, they could focus more on detailed moulded animals as the accessories. One advantage would be they could even out the male to female ratio of characters too. The printing on the bags could be a zebra print! 1) Zookeeper with sea lion 2) Zookeeper with tapir 3) Zookeeper with toucan 4) Zookeeper with koala 5) Zookeeper with meerkat 6) Zookeeper with baby hippo 7) Zookeeper with hyena 8) Zookeeper with wallaby 9) Zookeeper with lemur 10) Zookeeper with sloth 11) Zookeeper with baby giraffe 12) Zookeeper with vulture 13) Zookeeper with aardvark 14) Zookeeper with red panda 15) Zookeeper with peacock 16) Zookeeper with capybara

    MOC: The Football Club

    Really good to see something quite unique being built for a Lego town, @Lepralego and even better to see a tribute to Craven Cottage (home of the greatest team of all time), which is particularly evident in the brick fa├žade and arched windows. The statue in front of the stadium is also a reminder of the Johnny Haynes one. I like the attention to detail, with all the sponsorship around the ground, the tanoy system and the merchandise available in the gift shop, as well as the colour scheme reflected in the seating. You'll have to build another stand opposite with 'OBU' written! I have always wanted to try a minifig-scale replica of CC. May I ask if you have been there and how you know about Fulham, given you are in Spain and they aren't one of the 'big' teams?
  3. Me too - I'd be moaning about it pretty much non-stop! The regular CMF lines give us so more to add to the Lego universe by including things that wouldn't get made into regular sets. Just think of all the special moulds that have been made for music instruments, sports equipment, animals (not to mention how many of these items that still don't exist). These things wouldn't be included in a regular set as the parts that make them worthwhile just wouldn't be deemed essential to justify increasing the cost of each set. I find the licensed series rarely offer much that couldn't be included in a regular set (in my view super hero themes generally are just collectible figures with added bricks included). I acknowledge I'm generalising here and it's cool that we have all the Star Wars/Batman/Avengers main characters but I'm just not that interested in seeing 101 variations of Batman suits. Don't get me wrong, I'm not anti-comic books or against Lego having licenses - we all like different things after all. However, I just don't want licensed themes to monopolise the Lego brand and don't see why certain figures can't just be released with regular sets.

    Ideas for CMFs

    Great work again, Robert. Always grateful for you sharing your talent with us - just a pity as usual that these aren't the official Lego designs! Love the variety here - a series that caters to every fan. My personal favourite is the violin girl, although the halfling, Rastafarian and vampire boy are the others I'd most like to see make an official Lego CMF series.

    Latest news about Lego animal moulds

    Yes, I much preferred the original parrot to the current blurred colours, which looks awful in my opinion. I would like to see the original parrot as a blue macaw and also the original red parrot refashioned (like they did with the horses) where the figure looks like the original but with wings spread out like the seagull. Also, the revers of the seagull would be good (e.g. no wings spread out).
  6. Nice to see an Adventurers MOC - great job @Peter1999 - I particularly like the bridge. Just been reading about Nepal and Tibet too so your build encapsulates the spirit of adventure perfectly!

    [MOC] Amazon Expedition

    Looking forward to this @LegoMathijs !
  8. eHi All, I hope everyone is keeping well. Just wondering if anybody could help or provide suggestions with a technical issue I have. It's just a bit of fun for some friends of mine, who I can't meet up with at the moment (for obvious reasons). I want to take very small snippets of pop songs (preferably from i-tunes) and combine them into a short track, playing consecutively one after the other. The aim of the game will be to identify which tracks the snippets come from. The samples will be too brief to identify using 'Shazam'-style apps, so nobody can cheat. I store my music using i-tunes but want to be able to post the tracks using Whatsapp? Any advice or suggestions will be much appreciated. I'm not overly technical so explanations in simple language would be very helpful! Thanks
  9. I think if we are only now getting one regular series a year, any future recolours of the brick costume should be made via Build-A-Minifig in stores. I'm not saying they shouldn't be done but it would take the place of something much better. I echo the comments above about some of the figures being worth the amount we are charged for them if they do not offer anything new or commonly available. I would also love to see the return of 3 regular series a year. Each series should include something to please the castle fans, space fans, costume fans, sports fans, music fans, etc. The licensed sets are often of zero interest to me.
  10. A shame there don't appear to be too many new moulds, as the licensed figures seem to lack these. I'd still much prefer multiple regular series each year as there is always something that will appeal for everyone. Hopefully we'll all still be here in 30 years time with a full minifigure orchestra available, a full zoo of new animal moulds and still playing Itaria's guessing games and solving his clues, with comments like 'we are long overdue an axolotl suit guy'!

    Latest news about Lego animal moulds

    A disappointing series for new animal moulds, although pleased about the turtle. It's a shame as the CMF series is usually the most appropriate place to see new moulds for smaller animals. I'd still like to see a koala, toucan and sea lion in future series. The introduction of licensed figure series has been a real disappointment as it means only one regular series per year and usually this means a lack of new moulds for generic, everyday items (sports equipment, musical instruments, etc). I suppose there could be some new animals in the Harry Potter series but these may also be fictional animals like the niffler...
  12. Only one animal is a disappointment. As a City fan, the CMFs are a perfect way to introduce new parts that aren't readily available in regular sets. I echo the frustration of others when the figures are those that are likely to appear in normal City sets. Itaria, is the animal one we haven't seen before? Also. Any music figures or new instruments?

    Rushy CMF Series 20 Guessing Game

    Some nice ideas above. Particularly more inclusion of animals to match the emergence of more new moulds appearing in recent regular series. Hope the Lego Group are taking note! Itaria, I assume as you can't take part you possibly have some indication of what we can expect to see. I know you understandably won't reveal any of the figures but could you perhaps hint if there is much potential for @Roebuck 's 'New animal mould' thread to have any additions? Anyway, my guesses... 1) Air Hostess 2) Ancient Greek 3) Bear/Teddy Costume 4) Canadian Mountie 5) Dark Elf 6) Diver 7) Dog Costume 8) Fisherman 9) Gondolier 10) Hotel Bellhop 11) Marie-Antoinette style character 12) Orchestra Member (violinist) 13) Shepherd/Shepherdess 14) Zoo Keeper 15) Zorro-style character
