  1. Three MOC minifigs of visitors from Hades. The one on the left I've had for years but gave him the voodoo doll not long ago. The one on the right, I've had for a while but not photographed before. The one in the middle is brand new using the latest BrickWarriors wings in orange. Apologies for the rubbish photography. My only camera is my phone which dates back to the Stone Age.
  2. I recently bought set 76014 Spider-Trike vs Electro mostly for the Electro minifig. But I'm really not keen on exposed head studs on minifigs and have already ordered a hair piece from BrickLink for the minifig even though the character in the movie is bald. I've got hundreds of minifigs in my display collection but only three (Spider-Man and two microfigures) have studs on top. The rest have hat or hair pieces or pre-shaped head pieces (like the goblinoid in this pic: http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/AmperZand/Fantasy/psyche_and_sidekick.jpg ) and are therefore SNOT. Even TLG seems to be moving away from exposed head studs if the grandpa minifig from CMF series 10 is anything to go by: http://minifigures.lego.com/en-GB/Bios/Grandpa.aspx What are your thoughts? Do you have a SNOT policy for your minifigs? Or are you happy to have exposed studs for your baldies?

    My CMF display

    Hi. I couldn't find a similar topic, so I started a new one. Let's all show our collection of collectible minifigures and the way we thought of displaying them. Here's my collection of all 12 Series released so far (without GB Olympics of course and Mister Gold :P). I've bought 2 large 48x48 gray plates and glued them to the glass of 40x50cm picture frames. A nice collage of minifigures using the booklets from the CMF bags behind the glass and voila, an eye-catcher for every LEGO enthusiast! I tried to arrange them by type (historic, sports, fantasy, animal costumes, space, etc.), but was limited by the height of the different minifigures to be able to put 8 rows on each plate. What do you think of this idea of a displaying method?
  6. Hi All, It isn't often I promote eBay listings, but tomorrow I have 55 auctions ending so I thought I would post in case one or more of my many items catches your eye! All 55 auctions are no reserve, starting at a .99 bid. They end tomorrow starting at roughly 5pm EST (or 2pm PST). Most auctions offer worldwide shipping. There are a variety of items up for sale, from vintage minifigures, exclusive minifigures, used sets, star wars, knights, city, etc.. Here is a link, check them out! http://www.ebay.com/sch/unclesamsantiques/m.html?item=201010588215&ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2562 Thanks and best of luck if you choose to bid!
  7. [pid][/pid] Hello everyone, Isn't it wonderful to suddenly be able to reminisce the excellent LEGO Pirates II series since it was first released in 2009. We have also gotten some good Pirate sets along the way through the LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean. And now, we see the latest minifigure pack in pre-packed condition out of the blue in a matter of recent days. I am very pleased to be able to pick this pack up at the LEGOLAND Malaysia, located at the 'Big Shop'. Although the price is on the high side, but I am very pleased to get it and take a better look for myself if it is indeed worth the money to acquire it. Name: 850839 Pirate minifigure pack Theme: LEGO System / Pirates Year: 2013 Pieces: 39 Minifigs: 4 minifigures Price: USD N.A, GBP N.A, EURO N.A, SGD $23.90, RM 59.90 Resources: Brickset, BrickLink An original packing image of the 850839 Pirate minifigure pack Back view of the original packing image of the 850839 Pirate minifigure pack Look here, mates! We have more new Pirate crew for recruiting Wow, this packing looks like any other regular typical battle pack which we have seen in the medieval castle, city, space, Halloween themes, etc, over recent years. It is a pleasant surprise to see this minifigure pack to appear in the market but I personally find it more of a re-hash of minifigure pack that just will like to rid of the extra parts in the warehouse, or you could really simply put it as a hint or a teaser of a new Pirates III theme in the near future. No one can be certain of the intentions of this mysterious minifigure pack except TLG planning. Perhaps, time will tell us soon. The content of the sealed box Within the sealed box, it comes with one small package, four pre-assembled minifigures with accessories and an instruction manual to build up the little scene. I will also like to mention that this package is built in these following countries and unfortunately the place that the package is produced from, is also notorious from the poorly made minifigure types with the marked symbol below the armpit. It is unfortunate even though the quality has slightly improved but you could see and feel visible differences. To me, that is considered a huge disappointment to a certain extent. It is not quite exact the same quality like the LEGO Collectable Minifigures Series, but maybe I am being too paranoid and sceptical due to early misconceptions. Front - Instruction Manual Back - Instruction Manual Building parts These are the parts from the small little package that will be used to build up the tiny little hide out for the Pirates to hide themselves from impending threat or to camouflage their treasure chest. It is definitely not very complicated to begin with. Useful parts and accessories In this package, these are some of the very useful parts and accessories that is definitely welcoming for any minifigures context. Weaponries such as the scimitar and flintlock pistol are good choice of weapons even though there is no typical traditional cutlasses for the pirates. I am not complaining since I got plentiful of such weapons. The crab and parrot are also excellent addition to the total count of animals inventories. Not to forget that, printed tiles like the new 2x2 map tile which I am very sure that I have not seen it before, and the printed ship bottle from the Pirates of the Caribbean. Lastly, the chicken drum stick and barrel are equally useful for any play settings, not restricting to Pirates. Treasure chest with chrome gold I am very pleased that the treasure chest came with the right content as reflected on the packaging. To me, this is a plus point as I had very bad experience from my 4181 Isla De Muerta review. I will be very upset if I have gotten the pearl gold colour instead of the chrome gold. I am glad this has been successfully resolved. The Pirates minifigures This pack come with a Pirate Captain and I am not deeply mistaken about it, two male henchmen and a female Pirate. Most of the parts in there are pretty much re-hash with little room for new creativity and imagination. Even though they have tried to shuffle in with a couple of new faces but it does not really hold much water as well and I find it weak in settings of the choice of minifigures too. Good news for some, there are back printing for all of the four minifigures who love a detail for minifigures. Do you like this minifigure pack? To conclude, I am not pretty satisfied with this new Pirate minifigure pack. It made up of too many re-hashes and the quality is not too desirable to my standard. The pricing is steep and the money probably warrant you to get a better LEGO playset instead. The good point in this pack is the useful building elements, parts and accessories which is decent and good selection, but unfortunately the quantity is low for the good stuff. In the end, I most likely bought this minifigure pack on impulse and I really want to find out for myself if the gold bar is indeed chrome. I am glad that TLG didn't mislead me to obtain a pearl gold bar instead. All in all, I only recommend you to get this minifigure pack if you are truly wanting to complete the LEGO Pirate theme or a true hardcore LEGO Pirates fan. Summary review Playability: 3/10 (Limited playability and probably depend a lot more on the integration of your own Pirates theme.) Design: 5/10 (Design is pretty simple and the selling point is probably the good selection of parts and accessories) Price: 3/10 (Price is expensive to my taste and not quite worth the money to acquire it with the extreme low parts to price ratio.) Overall: 3.7/10 (Grab this if you are really intending to complete every single LEGO Pirate sets out there.) I gave it a "2" based on my Review Score Card. What about yours? I hope every one of you enjoyed reading this simple review of mine. Comments and Criticisms are strongly welcomed. Pictures can be found in My Flickr and My Brickshelf (When moderated)
  8. Hello, I have always wanted the 375 lego "yellow" castle, and have passed on several occasions to get one. I want one complete with all pieces, instructions, stickers and minifigures. I have recently found two really good ones. One comes to about $300CAD with everything MINT but the box was opened and the set was displayed. The other comes to $400CAD with everything, Very good shape minifigures, and the inner bags are still sealed except for the minifigures. Will the value go up over time? It is the first lego Castle set. I am asking because the prices are eveywhere on the scales. I have seen anywhere from 150-2500. Let me know if these prices seem right, I am leaning towards the one with some sealed inner bags. Thanks!

  11. Here's my Uruk-Hai army. It's just one group of minifigures but shown in two shots. I'm not a purist, so you'll see some custom parts such as some BrickWarriors helmets and BrickArms pole arms. Saruman wanted his army back, but I told him to #~@I< off! http://www.brickshel...y_-_montage.jpg And here's my Uruk general and champion: http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/AmperZand/Fantasy/uruk_general_and_champion_-_cropped.jpg
  12. Ketchup & Mayonnaise Factory Hi, Lego funs -- I built this Factory (machine) for my grandchildren Filip & Laura to have more fun in preparing their small Christmas ham and cheese sandwiches with spread of ketchup or mayonnaise, as they like. As you can guess, there is a lot of fun, although they eat (and play) 60 minutes longer (but eat more). A short video will be posted in a day Mladen.

  14. Hello everyone, Many of you have been highly anticipated of this elusive eleventh series and only until recently in mid-July where the Internet have seen picture leaks and distribution in Poland of this LEGO Collectable Minifigure Series 11. I am sure many of you are anticipating and wondering if this traditional pictorial review will ever come and I am extremely glad to be able to deliver once more to share this iconic reviewing traditional feature of my favourite LEGO Collectable Minifigures right here exclusively in Eurobricks. In the not too far distant past, The LEGO Group (TLG) had just recently released Series 9 in just six months ago and Series 9 is now slated for 'retiring soon' and 'sold out' in the Shop@Home/US. Series 10 is still currently available but I am sure with the new Series 11 coming to the stores worldwide, it is only a matter of time before Series 10 face the same fate as Series 11. LEGO fans will have to act fast before you miss the LEGO Collectable Minifigures craze. Firstly and always, I will like to give my very most sincere continued thank you and gratitude to TLG for giving me this very exclusive 'early' insight before others, so I could have enough spare time to work, evaluate and review this brand new LEGO Collectable Minifigures Series. I will also like to give my thanks to Eurobricks Staff/LEGO Ambassador, CopMike and my fellow Eurobricks Staffers for being so helpful and supportive to this reviewing endeavour. Last but not least, the most important person which I must thank, is my beloved wife, Kim/Belun for being very understanding and supportive throughout this chaotic and hectic period of ours! I am almost saddened if I can't release this review at the given releasing date especially since so many things are happening all at one go. I am truly glad that I am able to see the end of rainbow and able to share this reviewing achievement with everyone once more. As always, we shall do a re-cap for all of the past Eurobricks 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 3 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 beginning of the year 2013, we have the recent Series 9 and Series 10. Now, I will like to invite the Eurobricks Community to cast their votes into this brand new Series 11 poll statistics as well. Name: 71002 LEGO Collectable Minifigures Series 11 Theme: LEGO System / Collectable Minifigures / Series 11 Year: 2013 Minifigs: 16 unique minifigures Price for 1 box: USD N.A, GBP N.A, EURO N.A, SGD $294.00 Price for 1 packet: USD 2.99, GBP 1.99, EURO N.A, SGD $4.90 Resources: Brickset, BrickLink An image of an 71002 LEGO Collectable Minifigures Series 11 box This eleventh series came in a very nice and cosy green schema which certainly adds some holiday spirit into it which kind of suitable for the upcoming Christmas festive mood at the end of the year. [Reference 1] [Reference 2] [Reference 3] The 11 different colour packaging themes for Series 1 to 11 boxes The amount of efforts to retrieve all of these boxes from my storage area is pretty hard and I hardly have the desire to keep empty boxes in its original state since storage space is a scarce resource to me. Putting them together is just always an amazing feat and all of these boxes have actually exceeded the studio background height. However, it is definitely worth it to place all of the 11 LEGO Collectable Minifigures boxes together for this superb unique group photo which is a sight to behold to witness the different colour transition for the different series. What could possibly contain within these mysterious sealed packets? This is the next new incredible Eleventh Series for the legendary LEGO Collectable Minifigures Series Theme The LEGO Collectable Minifigures Series (CMFs) is slated for worldwide release on the 1st August 2013 or 1st September 2013. This is another outstanding piece of achievement for this very special LEGO theme, where it has successfully released a total of three series in the year of 2013. The TLG CMFs design team has certainly outdo themselves by able to amaze and marvel us with so many more new integrative and unique minifigures' designs. I am sure most of us have not taken aback by the recent maniacal craze of hunting Series 10 - Mr. Gold? Despite of the Mr. Gold craze, the LEGO CMFs theme remain a force not to be reckon with and continue to stand proud which shall remain as one of the popular themes to acquire for many LEGO fans out there. I will leave to our fans to decide for themselves if Series 11 continue to live up to the high expectations. To me, this series remain a huge importance in the LEGO history and affirming my belief that all of these minifigures in the past, present and future series will continue to be regarded as part of the 'Golden Age' for the LEGO CMFs theme. Please do note that the naming that I have use for this review are official TLG minifigures naming for Series 11. So, there is absolute no doubt or misinterpretation on the naming used. Front view comparison between Series 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11 packets Wow, just plain wow! Isn't it amazing when all of the packets for the entire series are placed together for a group photo? This is just so magical to see the entire different packets for Series 1 to 11. There are altogether 11 different packets and design packagings for this single theme since the birth of the LEGO CMFs. Many of the earlier series such as 1 and 2 are considered to be pretty vintage at this point of release since the access to acquire these older series are considered to be a hefty challenge for forking out more money to purchase them in the secondary market since they are released in lesser quantities unlike those more recent released series. Just take any of this packet and open it. If you can just hold all of the 11 packets in your hand based on the above illustrated image. Rip it open and you discover a random LEGO minifigure that can be special to the person who is buying it. Be it for the parents, children, AFOLs, casual shoppers, there is always a random something for everyone of us and I guess this is an easy way to bring back a person who is in the dark ages by tempting them to open up these packets! To add on, I actually got a bin of unopened packets which I have not marked them with, even though I am sure the minifigures which I have bought are the ones I like. It is just that it is still quite a random feeling for me not to find out what it is in there, without the touch and feel method. Take a closer look at these. This is the front view of the Series 11 packet, while this shows the back view of it. Last but not least, this is an image that shows the back view comparison of all packets. I am going to repeat this very same golden rule, likewise in all of my previous reviews. If you are intending to narrow the precious and scarce minifigures that you are collecting, please continue to hone the touch and feel method. It is an useful skill set to acquire and locate the minifigures that you want without wasting additional money to randomly acquire them especially 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 that appeared for the particular minifigure. From there, eliminate the torso, head and legs away and feel for other parts. The only disadvantage of this method is much idle time will be most likely wasted if the minifigures that you are seeking for does not exist in the box or ending up having sore numb thumbs after feeling. However, I personally feel that this approach is the most practical that works the best for me than any other uncommon approaches. Front view of the Minifigs Series 11 promotional leaflet Back view of the Minifigs Series 11 promotional leaflet 1) The savage Barbarian The savage barbarian can be regarded as a person who is perceived to be uncivilised, rude, wild, unrestrained and insensitive. More importantly, the barbarian is also known for its feat brute strength that could certainly overwhelmed its opponents in relative ease. The immense fierce appearance of his, is very taunting especially with the remaining battle scars that etched deep into his skin. Even though his appearance may not be as gallant as a shiny knight but his quest for freedom and brotherhood continue to be strongly desired. I could have make it up but the barbarian is someone who I will like to form a tribe of warriors or even mercenaries awaiting at the tavern to accept any dangerous and highly paid quests. Parts assortment The parts assortment is decent and I am glad to see two sharp gladius swords that allow him to master duo swordsmanship which clearly demonstrate his strong offensive approach. There are two different prints on his either side view. The first image show the wrap on his wrist while the second image show the wrist guard or similar on his other hand. I am also very pleased to note the side prints of his legs which add some fair details in it. There is also back printing at the back of the Barbarian. The hairpiece also reminded me of the character, Prince Dastan in the Prince of Persia movie which is a fine hairpiece to use it for many other scenarios. Aren't we look quite similar to one another? Fighting for my freedom Ferocious Warriors 2) The stoic Scarecrow The stoic scarecrow may look unglamorous but in actual fact, the scarecrow's main intention is to act as a decoy or mannequin which resemble in the form of human being wearing in old tattered clothings. It is placed and positioned in the midst of the crop fields to discourage the presence of birds such as crows or sparrows to disrupt the growing of crops. Basically, the Scarecrow is meant to scare these birds away. It is not the same type as the DC Batman Comic villain, 'Scarecrow'. For my take, I am extremely happy to see a scarecrow looking character appearing which is geared towards the LEGO Farm theme. I will probably welcome a fleet of these scarecrows to be ready for placing in the crop fields. Parts assortment The parts assortment is excellent. You are able to notice that the straw hat and the crow are some of the appealing factor and it is probably good news for some fans that the two parts can be separated from one another which will allow them to use the black crow as another fine piece of animal and the straw hat as an useful new head-ware. From this angle, you are able to take a closer look at the scarecrow Furthermore, I am most welcomed with the inclusion of the uncommon pitchfork accessory which was recently re-introduced back as reddish brown colour unlike the old Classic Castle brown appearance. Till this date, there are a total of 17 sets which contain a pitchfork. You will also notice that there are some detailed side printing on this side and the other side which both reflect different prints at the sleeve. Not to miss out, that there is a back printing as well. This is indeed a fine designed minifigure in this series. The body of the Scarecrow My crops will be safe from crows 3) The festive Bavarian Lady I supposed this festive looking lady is originally from Bavaria which is located in south east of Germany. Her attire is a type of traditional dress, known as Dirndl. Pardon for my lack of knowledge in this area, as I have only commonly seen this attire in Germany where many young women are seen wearing during the period of Oktoberfest in Munich. Nonetheless, this is a very lovely and bubbly female minifigure with its slight freckled wide grin smile. I will definitely like to use her as a medieval villager since her outfit is rather suited in that era. Parts assortment I really wish to see her holding a mug of beer, but perhaps it is not recommended to be seen at her hand since TLG's general target audience is the children. Her hairpiece is a new lovely ponytail design and you can enjoy the beautiful sight right from her back. The green and white apron is made up of cloth piece which is similar to the past recent cloth skirt pieces like the Series 8, Fairy. The pretzel is still a nice repetitive accessory which is first seen with the Series 8, Lederhosen Guy. Will you like to have some delicious pretzels? Forest Friends 4) The nasty Evil Mech Evil space villains welcomed a new addition into the space family and able to match up with the first Series 9, Battle Mech. This nasty looking evil mech is more cold looking and it is randomly rumoured to be associated with the Classic Space villain, Blacktron. It does not look friendly and certainly pose a threat to many others. Parts assortment The parts assortment is decent and even though I am really glad that this Evil Mech come with a space weapon but I did not expect to see a loud hailer and a illuminate green cone to form the space blaster. I am more hoping to see a complete new design of the weapon to increase the space weaponry assortment. After you have removed the Evil Mech's helmet off, you will be able to notice the green looking robotic head with all of the laser targeting markings and range on the visual lens. There are nice detailed printing which can be found at the side, while at the back revealed his large jet-pack that enable him to manoeuvre freely above ground. Taking the Evil Mech's armour off Space Rivals Space Factions 5) The fearsome Tiki Warrior The fearsome looking Tiki Warrior is my favourite character of the lot, simply because it re-introduce the presence of Classic Pirates, Islanders. It is also a magnificent design of a total re-creation of this defender of its native tribe which will be seen in some illustrative images below. I could see this character being very popular among Castle and Pirates fans, and more importantly you will soon be able to understand the key reason of its popular artificial demand. Parts assortment The parts assortment is very good and if I will like to improve it further, I will certainly like to see an inclusion of a newly designed shield. The giant face mask is made up of soft-medium rubber material and the paint detail is excellent. Not only to mention that they have re-introduced the Islander's hairstyle. You will be able to observe greater details from the side view. You are my protector Meet the Tribal Warriors Tribal Warriors lining up A little modification to the Tiki Warrior Protect our villagers from danger 6) The yummy Gingerbread Man This minifigure will certainly make lots of people smile, and I myself included. The yummy Gingerbread Man is a very delicious biscuit or cookie which is baked for special festive occasions.It even have its own fairytale story. I will be very most tempted to dip it into a glass of milk, but fortunately this is inedible and it will probably be good to leave it intact. Parts assortment The parts assortment is pretty neat and the design to create the Gingerbread Man is amazing. It has the height of the regular LEGO minifigure and yet it has a very unique body constitution which can be seen from the side and the back. The headpiece is a flat circular structure which enable him to lie just flat on the oven stove for baking. The colourings of the facial exp<b></b>ressions, buttons and legs are equally impressive. To be honest, I can't find much flaw in this design and I think this is one of the nice design in this new series. The red mug with the print, 'Dunk Me' is equally great and such mug designs are always much preferred than just mono looking ones. Dunk Me! Don't eat me LEGO Fairytales 7) The festive Holiday Elf Holiday Elf are great helpers to Santa Clause. Because without their hardwork, children from all over the world will not have Christmas presents. Therefore, this festive dwarf-looking Elf is on a mission to pack and wrap presents for Santa Clause and it is definitely a nice minifigure to add into the seasonal characters together for celebration. Parts assortment The parts assortment is nice especially with the 2x2 printed gift wrap tile which proved to be versatile for many other building purposes. A different teddy bear colour shade is also nice to be included with this minifigure as it created more gift variations. As you can see from the side and the back, you will notice that the elvish ears are attached to the green hat. Christmas Gifts Where shall I wrap you in? Working very hard for Christmas 8) The elusive Yeti The elusive Yeti or commonly known as the Abominable Snowman may not be a myth afterall especially since the TLG designers have managed to capture such cute lovely looking Yeti instead. When I first see the possibility of this character appearing, I wondered how it will look like. To my expectations, the Yeti is unbelievably adorable which could be inappropriate for some and since this is also not a costume minifigure, then I believe the usage of it as a practical joke will be rather real to our LEGO minifigures. Parts assortment The parts assortment is decent and the new blue ice cream stick is welcoming. You can observe the white fur on the torso and legs and along with the brand new headpiece for the Yeti facial exp<b></b>ression. The back view reveal the different layers of furs that depict the Yeti's iconic feature. Run for our lives!!! 9) The adventurous Mountain Climber The adventurous Mountain Climber is a professional high risk taker that challenge high altitudes right to the top of the summit. Apparently, he is well-trained with his trusty equipment gear including those mountain carbines that are seen at the waist. His specialised profession is medical expertise and I trust he is able to assist others since he bear the proficiency badge that will readily available to help his team mates and others. Parts assortment The parts assortment is not too bad and the equipment of the mountain climber is pretty good too especially with the new rope that will assist him in the climbing expedition. His availability will serve useful mountaineer expeditions. Climbing up with bit by bit Fear of heights??? You will be our medic specialist 10) The industrial Welder The Welder works hard in the strenuous tough environment of many industries where welding expertise is required. Welding can be considered a dangerous specialised profession where safety has to be considered and applied at the highest personal protection level. Without those personal protection equipment in place, it will put the Welder in a vulnerable position that will compromise his safety. Parts assortment The parts assortment is good and you will be able to observe the good selection of his welding equipment that make up of the following welding components including the printed flammable 1x1 orange cylinder bottle. He also donned in his protective long sleeve jackets and heavy duty leather gloves together with his wielding helmet to protect his eyes against from high UV light. I am tired after an intense day of work Assembling the Robot together Shall we head to Jim's bar for a drink? 11) The analytical Scientist The analytical Scientist will always review the test results carefully before proceeding further, likewise with her many unknown chemical substances that are available at her disposal. She will be able to mix different chemicals together to form many different possibilities that will assist in her research. It is welcoming to see a female Scientist joining into the City civilians population. Parts assortment The parts assortment are not too bad especially when there are two new viral bottles in light blue and green chemical liquids. Her clean white outfit also match her profession well and I will also suggest to use it for other medical professions as well since their attire is relatively similar to one another. On another note, I have to take a very close look and realised that this Scientist is known as Professor C.Sodin. I could be wrong since my eyesight is getting much poorer. Therefore, it is definitely not quite regarded as a research assistant. Different sort of scientists DO exist 12) The slick Jazz Musician Aww, he looks real slick just like the Blue Brothers. His black cool outfit and his killing saxophone could just blow your mind away. I could recall fans hoping to see a Jazz Musician like himself and include him in a 'live' band for Jazz music coverage. It will definitely be a stunning sight. I am already thinking of some possible fun settings for him to perform. Parts assortment Everyone will like to zoom into the saxophone since this is one of the highly anticipated accessory in this Series. The design of the saxophone is highly detailed with its pearl gold colour. This will enhance the musical bands by placing more of such instruments into playing. As for the rest, his black attire is suitable and able to integrate as a regular City civilian Men in Black 13) The friendly Diner Waitress The friendly Diner Waitress is an iconic sight back in the United States, during the 1950s where you will be able to find them serving the dining customers at the diners by moving up and forth with the roller skates. The waitress are able to serve their orders with speed and ease through the roller skates. There are lots of balancing to be involved but firstly balancing yourself, followed by the order. Parts assortment The parts assortment is decent and the outfit certainly look pretty retro as well. You are able to see theback view of her in skates before she rolled off with the strawberry ice cream float order. As you looked closely into her uniform, you will notice that her name is called Tara and this is another fine secret teasing facts of the design team which are incorporated into the minifigure's design. The front of the LEGO Service Industry Can I be on your team? 14) The kind Grandma After seeing the first appearance of Series 10, Grandpa, I am already hoping for a Grandma to be accompanying our dear Grandpa. True enough without a long wait, the kind Grandma make its appearance into this series with many fine detailed features. I find it very heart warming to see TLG to able to create Grandparents into the LEGO family. Parts assortment Apart from the usual picnic basket, you will find a nice new animal cat that make a fine companion to Grandma and personally I find it to be well designed. You will also notice that Grandma's knitted sweater also revealed several cat's printing near its waistline. The back view also reveal Grandma's grey looking hairdo. Visiting Grandma Meow Meow and Woof Woof Both of them are still close as ever Grandparents are always such a great inspiration to our lives... 15) The dutiful Constable One look and you will know this Constable is doing his rounds in his No.1 Uniform in the United Kingdom even though it is quite uncommon for the law enforcers to be wearing this uniform in present times. It is very welcoming to see him appearing as part of the LEGO minifigures community. I am pretty fond of his moustache on his look which is deemed iconic as well. I could not find any flaws in it and the design is spot-on. Parts assortment The parts assortment is good and the baton is wonderful new accessory addition. You can see how the Constable able to grip his baton tightly at his hand. The custodian ('bobby') helmet is done in a very nice manner as well too and I am very pleased with it too. Apparently his badge indicates JCF and his collar ID number is 1337. I really wondered what does that mean. Anyone can enlighten me a little? Law Enforcers in the LEGO City and Town The iconic British characters 16) The caring Lady Robot I did not expect to see a female companion for our Series 6, Clockwork Robot and I don't really think it is necessary to create this design. It is a lovely design but I am not very fond of it and used it for other intended purposes than to place it by his side. I am sure it does appeal to fans who enjoy a good retro 1950s looking robots as a form of variation and as far as my limited memory could recall, I don't quite remember seeing a female robot version. I could be wrong. Well, to me, the Lady Robot will be my least favourite among the 16 new minifigures. Parts assortment The parts assortment is mediocre and there are no other accessory which can be held by her hand. At least, give her some equipment to hold onto, other than just empty hands. The design of the back view is the same approach as the Clockwork Robot which allow the robots to wind up its potential energy. The robotic duo Robotic Sidekicks A concluding thought for the Collectable Minifigures Series 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11 Let's take a moment and view this awesome super big family group image which I have assembled for your viewing pleasure! It is getting a little less comfortable and more complicated to assemble all of these LEGO CMFs within a 48x48 grey baseplate. It will be even more challenging for me to squeeze the next new series within this fixed boundaries but I am confident that I will be able to find a solution to it when the time comes. So, what do you think and feel of this entire LEGO CMFs with everything being presented in this image? In my case, it is simply amazing with tremendous loads of excitement to see this entire LEGO CMFs theme altogether. I fully understand that some of us are feeling very exhausted and tiring to continue collecting this theme as TLG has been releasing at a very fast pace since the year 2010 and it have revamped and given a new meaning of collecting these minifigures especially when one of each of this is simply a new identity of its own where there are so many new possibilities that have been created in just a single theme that is proudly a TLG's own unique product range. I will love to see this continue and wish TLG to strive harder to actively promote this LEGO CMFs as we moved on. I hope this will continue to serve as one of the landmark themes within TLG to reach out more LEGO collectors and fans of all ages because I am very confident that there is definitely one minifigure out there in each series that you will adore most. Now with a total of 176 minifigures released for the entire Series 1 to 11, not including Mr.Gold which unfortunately I do not have the blessings to own it and the recent acquired Toy Soldier that can only be obtained through The Minifigures Character Encylopedia. It is no easy feat to be able to collect this entire theme especially when you have joined the parade much later where Series 1 and 2 are limited in numbers on a global scale. Although I have taken a long time to put these minifigures together for a new group image, but I have definitely and surely enjoy this process that is considered tremendously a lots of minifigures to be seen and is no easy feat to attain and to complete. Every time, I do this step, it is always very incredible to see how much and how far this theme had evolved to a greater magnificent transformation that formed a new pillar which formed the new blocks of LEGO products range. With Series 11 releasing soon, I am still quite unsure whether if we will see any Series 12 in the near future. I hope there is and we will be ready for the future LEGO CMFs Series. All in all, my wish is to be able to see this magical theme to continue wave after wave in every new calendar year. General Statistics for Minifigures Series 11 Below is the combination which I have received from my box, 4 Barbarians 2 Scarecrows 2 Bavarian Ladies 4 Evil Mechs 2 Tiki Warriors 4 Gingerbread Men 4 Holiday Elves 6 Yetis 6 Mountain Climbers 6 Welders 4 Scientists 2 Jazz Musicians 2 Diner Waitresses 2 Grandmas 6 Constables 4 Lady Robots Based on the above distribution, I have managed to achieve only two full complete sets of 16 one-of-a kind minifigures each. It means I will have 28 remaining random spares left. Read down to find out what are the remaining spares I have. My remaining spares 2 Barbarians 0 Scarecrows 0 Bavarian Ladies 2 Evil Mechs 0 Tiki Warriors 2 Gingerbread Men 2 Holiday Elves 4 Yetis 4 Mountain Climbers 4 Welders 2 Scientists 0 Jazz Musicians 0 Diner Waitresses 0 Grandmas 4 Constables 2 Lady Robots Data Analysis Based on the complete new data which I have complied, I have indicated my basic analysis based on my own take. Buying one full complete MISB box will allow you to achieve two maximum complete unique sets. I believe this is the new distribution which is being considered for a full box of 30 since TLG is intending to market the LEGO CMFs series with effect of the recent Series 9 to be sold in a box of 30 and 60 to market and reach out to new and different group of consumers. Therefore, if you are buying a box of 30, you will definitely be given a full complete set, while a box of 60 will certainly give you 2 complete set. On a personal note, I do not quite like the way the new distribution is being configured, not because of the given completed series for a full MISB box. I felt the allocation for the minifigures types is not quite the way I will like it to have. It is because there are not many filers minifigures under the group of six, like the Welders, Mountain Climbers and Yetis. I am not pleased to see these minifigures types to be given with a higher frequency. The only little consolation is the nice looking Constable being given the group of six treatment but still, I will prefer to see the Barbarian or the Tiki Warriors instead to be given a better distribution treatment. So far, each of the 16 unique collectable minifigures have an equal chance of getting 2 out of 32 packets, when a fresh untouched box is opened and consumers will rush in to buy it separately. That will be a 6.25% probability based only on 32 packets. When you add the remaining 28 spares into the calculation, the probability will varies further. 6 unique minifigures are now only available at 12 out of 60 packets and this translates to 20% in total and 3.33% each, which makes it very much harder than before to achieve by just doing it randomly. However, it is a great pity that the Tiki Warriors and the Scarecrows are classified as the lowest probability distribution point since there are only two each in each sealed box. The Tiki Warrior maybe classified as a potential army builder minifigure since it is closely related with the Classic Pirates, Islanders theme but I am not quite sure if it will be the most expensive minifigure in Series 11 even though it might be a very popular choice but definitely not as popular as its predecessors like the Series 2, Spartan or Series 3 Elf. There are lesser army building minifigures choices in this Series and the other likely potential ones will be the Barbarian and the rest of it will probably be good with just a few of them since this series is much inclined towards the City settings. I am neutral with the rest of the distribution and I really wish that some of the lowest probability distribution point like the Jazz Musician, Scarecrow and Grandma can be given slightly more in quantities . Overall, I am not very upset with the way in how the LEGO Collectable Minifigures distribution listing is being done but I am definitely not quite pleased about it. What do you guys think about this round of distribution? Do you share my same sentiments? To conclude and summaries, based on the probability demonstrated by this review, as an example, here are the results, Very High probability 1) Yetis 2) Mountain Climbers 3) Welders 4) Constables Total range: 40% (increases by 15% more based on 3 complete sets equation) Each: 10% Medium probability 1) Barbarians 2) Evil Mechs 3) Gingerbread Men 4) Holiday Elves 5) Scientists 6) Lady Robots Total range: 40% (remains the same based on 3 complete sets equation) Each: 6.67% Very Low probability 1) Scarecrows 2) Bavarian Ladies 3) Tiki Warriors 4) Jazz Musicians 5) Diner Waitresses 6) Grandmas Total range: 20% (decreases by 15% less based on 3 complete sets equation) Each 3.33% Some of my close-up images of my current LEGO Collectable Minifigures Series collection To conclude, the LEGO Collectable Minifigures Series 11 has done a good job to introduce more new minifigures into the LEGO CMFs theme that has reached another new heights. Perhaps, I felt that Series 11 did not create a larger hype other than not seeing the leaks earlier, but it does not create the greater hype due to lack of 'Where is Mr.Gold?' campaign or equivalent which is first revealed in Series 10. To me, that is a good news and it avoided unnecessary distractions which caused quite an uproar in hunting Mr.Gold. In this new Series, I noticed that there are more City related designs and professions than any other playing themes. The best thing about this new Series is to be able to see the new Yeti, Gingerbread Man and Welder which are totally a new designing concept that have never been seen before. It is no easy feat to be able to work on a continuous tight schedule and able to design and deliver new LEGO Minifigures with their wonderful pool of ideas which is obtained by many inspirations. I am confident that the imagination for creativity in the TLG CMFs design team will always be strong. This is also the only single avenue where we can see many exciting new minifigures at one go that can never be achieve in the regular LEGO theme releases where stand-alone minifigure concept is not possible where the theme revolve around it. Overall, I find this series to be a little weaker than its predecessors similar to Series 8, but I am not complaining that this series is not living up to my expectations as each of these new minifigure's design will be sought for by every different LEGO fans. Please note that the LEGO Collectable Minifigures Series 11 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 (Many more new LEGO Collectable Minifigures integration across many new and existing themes.) Design: 8.5/10 (Good detailed and limited new LEGO minifigures' parts and accessories with more endless incredible accessories like the new cat, saxophone, baton, etc.) Price: 8/10 (I believe pricing will remain the same and to me, the quality has certainly improved on overall.) Overall: 8.2/10 (Another high rating for the LEGO CMFs and it is definitely worth buying and collecting these new minifigures.) I gave it a "5" based on my Review Score Card. What about yours?

  15. Hey guys, It's been a while since I posted on here and thought I'd share a new round of custom designs I'm hoping to add to over time. A friend of mine requested a decal of Mohandas Gandhi for his History class and thought I'd share it, as it turned out okay. I kind of like the idea of doing real life historical people as figs so I thought I'd start with Gandhi and add figures from time to time here. Anyway, would love your feedback on the design and any suggestions, as I have a bit of time waiting for my business paperwork to go through at the moment for my custom minifigs LLC. I'm thinking of maybe doing a Barack Obama, Erwin Rommel, General Patton, Winston Churchill, Albert Einstein, etc., but I'd love to hear suggestions!! As far as copyright, feel free to use this design for your own decaling purposes or for fun ONLY, but do not use for commercial reproductions and/or selling purposes without permission. I'd love to see if anyone applies these at all to a fig, please share and post them here, or links. Thanks and hope you enjoy! Mohandas Gandhi Use with flesh head, white torso, legs, and arms.

  16. Hello, I just was wondering... am I the only one who bought tons of those sets with 6 or 5 minifigures in them? City, Space, Castle and Pirates... they were FANTASTIC! I really miss a lot those sets. Why doesn't Lego produce them any more? Who would like to have them back? Battlepacks do not reach all countries, and actually they are the closest thing to those sets... but not exactly same thing. So... comments?

  21. Hello everybody, I want to make a big Barbarian army, using the viking minifigs, and a big Roman army, using the CMF roman soldiers and the roman commanders. I don't have the roman soldier, but the commander 3 times, so a lot of soldiers would be nice. I have 27 vikings, I have all the sets except the chess set. My question is, where can I buy those minifigures for not that much, not bricklink or such a site, they don't work for me. I live in the Netherlands, so please no sites or shops from halfway across the world, the shipping prices are a bit too high . (Moderators, if this is not in the right place, please move it)
  22. Hello again! Today, I bring a very, very special review, one not yet seen here on Eurobricks! Set Name and Number: 8909 Team GB Collectible Minifigures Theme: Collectible Minifigures Release: July 2012 Pieces: 63 Minifigures: 9 Price: £1.99 Links: My flickr Introduction This set was introduced during July 2012, as a Europe-exclusive set, being a special set in recognition of the 2012 Olympics, held in London. Now, I come from the United States, and like many other people living in the United States, I bought these lovely minifigures off of eBay. Do note that each of the figures come with a special gold medal. I am providing pictures of the figures with their medals. If you are interested in seeing pictures of them without their medal, please visit my flickr page, linked above. Now, I think it is time to begin the review! The Packet and Checklist The front of the packet features all 9 of the figures, ready to face their opponents. It looks very nice, and I think it meshes together very well. Do note that there is no specific color, but a red, white, and blue packaging. These are the colors for the Great Britain team. The back of the packaging features a very lovely streak of red and blue, as well as the Team GB Lion near the top. I like the design, because that is a detail that is not normally seen. The pamphlet features all 9 of the figures, so you can see which ones you are trying to find, as well as some of their details. I overall think that it looks a lot nicer than the usual Collectible Minifigure pamphlets, because we usually don't get this kind of detail. The back of the pamphlet showcases everything included with the figures. I am pretty sure that the only thing not shown here is the printings. Once again, I love all of the extra details. The Minifigures 1.) The Agile Archer This archer is a very nice figure, he has a lot of special pieces, such as the bow in black, and my favorite piece, the Superman hair in dark orange. This figure also has a lot of detail, and not a lot of it is covered up by the medal, as well, which I am very happy with. Overall, I feel like this is my favorite of the collection. Here you get a better look at the torso, which is very nice and has the GB lion on its front. The pants are kind of strange with the white stripes down the side, but I don't mind it that much. This is a very strong figure and I am ecstatic to be able to own it. It will also be very nice to note the brand new Olympics Team GB display stand! It is very nice to see this piece being used in a new color, and the printing is very well done. 2. The Brawny Boxer This Boxer is overall a very nice figure. He has some cool details on the shorts, and I feel like the torso is a bit lacking, but I think he makes a nice addition to the group. Do note that the helmet will not fit entirely on the head with the medal being worn. Here, our Boxer meets the Series 5 Boxer. The one thing that frustrates me here is that the Boxer has almost the exact same head as the Series 5 one. Other than that, I think they look good together. When the pack is opened, we get a lovely blue helmet, that has the Team GB Lion on it. This is a great parts pack, especially if you're looking for some new colors for the boxing gloves. 3. The Flexible Gymnast Another one of my favorites this series, the Gymnast is a great addition. She has an incredibly beautiful leotard on with a once again, lovely, GB Lion on it. The face is wonderful too, I love to use it whenever I create minifigure characters. TLG was even nice enough to include a balance beam for us. Thoughts like these really make me smile! Another thing to note is the beautiful ponytail in blonde, which is one of the reasons I wanted these so much! 4. The Judo Fighter Another one of my favorites (Though I do karate, not Judo ), this Judo Fighter has a striking resemblance to the Series 2 Karate Master. Once again, we see the Lion. (I think they're on them all. ) We get back printing with the Judo Fighter, and we also get another Lion cameo! I do like this printing, it received a lot more attention than the Karate Master. Here is a comparison between the two. I like that they both have patches on their left side. Overall, I feel like the newer one is stronger. Especially on the legs. After the packet is opened, we see this. I love her confident expression, and it's nice to get the ponytail in another new color. (It was made in black with a magenta stripe in Series 6, but we have never seen one in just black. 5. The Tactical Tennis Player Another Tennis Player, really? Honestly, I feel like TLG is trying to take advantage of the Tennis Player, introducing parts and recoloring parts over and over. Here he is with his companions, the female is from Series 3, and the male is from Series 7. I really don't like this GB one, it looks really cheap to me. The best is the Series 3 one, IMHO. The main thing that bugs me here is the shirt (I feel like the colors kind of clash), and the sweat on the head. The sweat just looks an awful milky white. Not a very strong figure. 6. The Wondrous Weightlifter This figure is certainly not the best figure, but I don't feel that it is the worst, either. He does have some nice printing, though the legs have an orange-y look to them. Here is our weightlifter compared to his Series 2 counterpart. I feel like this one is a drastic improvement from its predecessor. The old on'es face reminded me of a person having trouble on the toilet. I prefer this newer one very, very much. There is nothing that is incredibly intriguing in this pack, but the face is cool (except for the sweat), and the weights are a nice new color. 7. The Relay Runner I love the relay runner. It reminds me of myself. I ran relay in middle school, and I have hair very similar to this. Another favorite. A very cute detail is that his number is 1948. That was the last year that London had hosted the games. I feel that this is one of the stronger figures of the series, well done, TLG. 8. The Stealth Swimmer Once again, we get a new swimmer! I like this swimmer, actually. I like the torso, but the water droplets bug me. They are a nice detail, though. The face is OK, but I feel like it may be a bit too generic. That's my opinion, though. Here is a picture of the side of the printed swimming cap. Here is our swimmer with his Series 7 counterpart. Perhaps she is from a different team? They look good together, I like them. The swimmer is a great figure, though it is not my favorite. Here are the parts, and a better view of the swim cap. I love, love, love that lion! 9. The Equestrian Rider OK, I feel like this figure is a great figure as well. She has so many details, such as the sash. I also love that the ponytail was included, because I didn't plan on buying Heartlake Stables. There is a better look at the beautiful coat, and I love the nice little scarf she is wearing, too. Here is a better look at her back. There is a hole in the back of her hat for inserting an accessory, but this figure comes with none. The hairpiece is from the Friends line, so there are a lot of different accessories that may attach to the hat. I'm not entirely sure why you would want to have a bow randomly sticking out of an equestrian helmet, but who cares? It's your choice, after all. One last thing of note is that she has printing on the inside of her legs. That is the first and currently only time to have happened, but I definitely hope to see it again. The Complete Set This composite Image shows all 9 figures together a little more clearly than the beginning picture. I feel as if the figures all mix together well to form a great team. What are your thoughts? The Verdict Design- 9/10 There are only a few figures that need work, but most of them are stellar! Parts- 8/10 I feel like there were maybe a few too many re-used parts, but so many parts that are exclusive make up for it. Price- 10/10 A great price for such exclusive figures. Playability- 9/10 The only thing needed is a set for them to compete on, and some competition. Total- 36/40 A very strong set overall. 90% total is very good for just minifigures Conclusion This set is definitely one worth getting. Even if you don't live in the UK, buy it. These are exclusives, and it would be a shame to miss out on it. The idea to make these figures was stunning. I would never have thought TLG would have made such figures, and it really paid off for TLG, as they became a very popular LEGO item, I would assume. These figures turned out to be very well executed, and I love each one, despite their flaws. These figures mix together so well as a team, and I'm honored to be able to hold my own complete Team GB minifigures due to the fact that I live in the USA. I am hoping that TLG makes these for the 2016 Olympics as well.

The blasted Rules The photography must be decent!We will NOT accept low resolution images nor include images which contain artefacts (graininess), aliasing (jagged edges), chromatic aberration (colour fringing), focal defects (blurriness), mismatched impedance (ghosting), oversaturation or any noticeable visual distortion. The image editing must be decent!We will not accept images if the background hasn't been cleanly removed. Each minifigure and any accessories must have a smooth edge with no obvious trace of the background remaining. DO NOT use Microsoft Paint! Edited Images MUST HAVE alpha transparencyThe background must be transparent in PNG format with an 8 bit alpha channel. NO transparent GIFs will be accepted! The minifigure/LEGO elements MUST be shown entirely within the photoPlease do not submit photos with minifigures/elements which cannot be fully seen. E.g. peaking in from the side or from the waist up. If they were to be added to the banner, whatever part(s) aren't visible would simply look cut off in the banner. The minfigure(s) must isolated against a neutral coloured backgroundBackgrounds with multiple colours can be a lot more challenging to edit. The background will need to be manually removed and this is much easier if it contrasts with the minifgure and is a constant colour. You may however, remove the background yourself, but be sure to save the image as a 32bit PNG file to ensure it retains its transparency. No lighting techniques or harsh shadowsPlease photograph your minfigure(s) in consistent lighting. No watermarks, logos, signatures or other brandingPlease ensure your photos are free from visual distractions. No Background Spill“Spill” is the term used in film and photography when a background colour reflects onto a foreground element. For example: a minifigure photographed against a blue background has traces of blue along its boundary. No flash highlights These are when the flash reflects off the minifigure causing white highlights or shines. Nothing too crude or offensive!Keep your minifigure’s anitcs clever and tactful.

  24. Saw this at Smashing Bricks. DK is releasing a Minifigures Character Encyclopedia with Series 1-10 and an exlusive figure. It's due to release in May 2013, and I'm curious. What could this exclusive figure be?
