WhiteFang posted a topic in Special LEGO ThemesHello everyone, Many of us including myself are extremely elated of the return of the traditional iconic and very original design of the LEGO Collectable Minifigures Series 12. Even though there are past recent releases of the LEGO Minifigures namely the LEGO Movie and the LEGO Simpsons. Both of these series are irrelevant of the structured release of the usual LEGO Collectable Minifigures release where the previous two series are based on a single spin-off or licensed. Before I begin this pictorial review, I will like to give my very most sincere thank you and appreciation to The LEGO Group (TLG) which consist of LEGO CEE and LEGO Collectable Minifigures Design Team for continuing to facilitate and giving me this very exclusive precious rare opportunity to access to this 'very early' insight before many others could, in order for me to have adequate spare time to work, evaluate and review this absolute amazing newly minted LEGO Collectable Minifigures Series 12. I am really thankful and I can't believe I have actually completed 14 exhaustive LEGO Pictorial reviews including this review, solely for the coverage of the LEGO Collectable Minifigures Series / LEGO Minifigures Theme throughout the past four years. I will like to thank to Eurobricks Staff/LEGO Ambassador, CopMike and my entire fellow Eurobricks Staffers for being so helpful to this 'WhiteFang' traditional CMFs reviewing endeavour. I must also thank my beloved wife, Kim/Belun for being there and supportive throughout this gruesome reviewing period! Seriously without the spouse support to give the blessings of doing a hobby like this that take away many weekends and sleepless nights, one must really thank and reward the wife for being so understanding and supportive. Otherwise, this review will never be make as a reality. It is important to have family and your loved ones to support the stuff that you have enjoyed doing and it also means include doing up LEGO pictorial reviews. I am truly very pleased that I am able to able to continue to share this very special reviewing achievement with all of you. I hope I have not disappoint anyone in this review, if so, I will like to offer my humble apologies and I really hope I can continue to meet your expectations for this exclusive reviewing coverage. As the Eurobricks tradition depicts, let's do a formal 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 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 beginning of the year 2013, we have the recent Series 9, Series 10 and Series 11. Now at the start of 2014, we have seen the LEGO Movie Series and the LEGO Minifigures – The LEGO Simpsons Series. Now, I will like to invite the Eurobricks Community to cast their votes into this complete brand new LEGO Collectable Minifigures Series 12 poll statistics as well. Name: 71007 LEGO Collectable Minifigures Series 12 Theme: LEGO System / Collectable Minifigures / Series 12 Year: 2014 Minifigs: 16 unique minifigures Price for 1 box: USD N.A, GBP N.A, EURO N.A, SGD N.A Price for 1 packet: USD N.A, GBP N.A, EURO N.A, SGD N.A Resources: Brickset, BrickLink An image of an 71007 LEGO Collectable Minfigures Series 12 The LEGO Collectable Minifigures Series 12 is sprayed with a nostalgic return in the traditional yellow for this entire release. It is closely similar and resemble to the first 8683 LEGO Collectable Minifigures Series 1 colour schema and a close relative of this colour group, which is the 71001 LEGO Collectable Minifigures Series 10. Do pardon me, I won't be showing all of the previously released boxes of the LEGO Collectable Minifigures Series for comparison, similar to this image. [Reference 1] [Reference 2] [Reference 3] [Reference 4] What could possibly contain within these mysterious sealed packets? The most highly anticipated of the incredible new LEGO Collectable Minifigures Series 12 The LEGO Collectable Minifigures Series (CMFs) is slated for worldwide release on the 1st October 2014 or 1st November 2014. This is just a superb outstanding piece of achievement for this very special LEGO Minifigures Theme, where it has now successfully clocked a total release of three series in the year of 2014. The LEGO Collectable Minifigures Design Team has once more, outdo themselves by able to amaze and stun us with 16 more new integrative and unique minifigures' designs. I am really very pleased to see the traditional and original design. Honestly, I am quite sick of the recent past two releases and it is awesome to be back to stick with this traditional Series and this time, it is known as Series 12 and not supposedly 'Series 14'. These minifigure series are classified under LEGO Minifigures Theme, even though I have always causally used LEGO Collectable Minifigures Theme loosely. Please do note that the naming that I have use for this review are official TLG minifigures naming for the LEGO Collectable Minifigures Series 12. So, there is absolute no doubt or misinterpretation on the naming used. Front view comparison with Series 12 and together with all available LEGO Collectable Minifigures Series 1 to 11, LEGO Movie and Simpsons packets By placing all of these minifigures packets altogether, you could see a distinct correlation of how it has evolved from LEGO CMFs Series 1 to the very new LEGO Simpsons Series, and to the current Series 12. Isn't it wonderful to be able to glance these different packets' design and it is pretty much standardised as well from one another. Take a closer look at these following images. This is the front view of the LEGO Collectable Minifigures Series 12 packet, while this shows the back view of it. While, this is an image that shows the back view comparison for all of these packets. This is the 'same' golden rule, which has been mentioned in my previous reviews. If you are intending to narrow the precious and hard-to-find minifigures that you are bending to collect, 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 comparison between Series 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12 packets The LEGO Collectable Minifigures Series has ended its hiatus and returned back to the traditional numbering. Now we could all sit back and see how this numbering will evolve in the near future. Meanwhile, here is the back view comparison of all the packets. You may also notice that I have purposely distinguish the The LEGO Collectable Minifigures Series 1, 10 and 12 packets since these are in a similar colour grouping. Placing Series 1 and Series 12 packets side by side To be honest, there is a very slight yellow differentiation from one another. From a layman point of view, it is just 'yellow' and it appear to rewind itself back to the first colour schema of Series 1 to mark the cycle of 12 series altogether. I just find it very fascinating to be able to reminisce the old colour of Series 1 packaging in year 2010. Front view of the LEGO Collectable Minifigures Series 12 promotional poster Back view of the LEGO Collectable Minifigures Series 12 promotional poster As you flipped to the back of the LEGO Collectable Minifigures Series 12 promotional poster, you are able to view a string of code embedded in the back. This code is to unlock a 'certain' mysterious character on the anticipating new MMORPG (massively multi-player online role-playing game) at LEGO.com/Minifigures. However, if you notice carefully at the top right hand corner of the promotional poster. You will be able to notice a number 10 which I strongly believed it will unlock 'Dino Tracker' which is the exact minifigure that I have gotten. I have also taken initiative to compare with the rest of the posters and codes. It appears that all number 10 promotional poster, shared the same string of code which allow you to unlock the same character. I will like to try out this new online + game code strategy to see how it will entice LEGO fans and collectors. I will think this will much appeal to the younger audience. Meanwhile, the official LEGO Minifigures Online "Beta" can be found here. 1) The wise Wizard The featured grey bearded old man appear to be an actual wise Wizard in the reclaims of dragons and medieval age. It is not the first time that TLG have introduced the line of Wizards. By doing a simple search, you will find many different types of Wizards available and one of the most iconic and classic Dragon Masters faction, Majisto the Wizard in 1995. Ever since, we have seen numerous recent appearances of Wizards playing a much significant role in the LEGO Castle Themes. I personally felt the wise Wizard is to pay homage to the classic Majisto the Wizard. In some ways, the entire blue colour schema, bearded look and overall appearance, it does give a warm, new and classical feeling about having him in the forces of good against the evil. Based on the overall design, this Wizard is much majestic and grand looking. He also seems to be specialised in astronomy with its starry design. This is one of the most iconic minifigure that I am looking forward to. Parts assortment The parts assortment for the Wizard is excellent. It comes with a wide variety of accessories, namely the components to make up his magic staff with the blue gem crowned on the top. The wizard cape is a two tier cloth which illustrates the stars and the moons at the back view. It is quite glitter to some extent and the material used seem quite different as well. It is much softer in texture. You can also see the Wizard's true appearance without the beard on. The wizard hat, from the side view, is a brand new element and it is a great new piece of accessory to have especially the typical wizard hat has been reused again and again. School of Magic Wizardry Companions Face the might of my magic I have come for the legendary Blue Wizard's assistance 2) The fierce Hun Warrior The fierce Hun Warrior has a reputation of being a barbaric nomadic tribe that will stop at nothing to achieve domination over others. The Hun warrior does not know the feeling of fear and will stop at nothing to eliminate their foes. I am pretty certain that either the Hun Warrior is part of the Hun Empire or Attila, in general. It has an intimidating warring outfit, which equipped him with long sword and wooden shield. It can also be adjusted and modified slightly since this minifigure has some oriental features in it. This is certainly one of the most welcoming minifigure for army builders and history fans. With this released minifigure, I will be looking forward to an expansion of MOCs towards such theme. Parts assortment The parts assortment are excellent and is highly welcomed by castle lovers. The weapons assortment including the grey long sword, new wooden printed round shield, bronze horned helmet which could be modified by removing the horns away and a long brown fur cape, as seen from the back view which has appeared for the very first time. This is a worthy army building minifigure which could be extended to customise for oriental armies for the warring states. The torso and leg are very useful to assemble and use for generic Asian soldiers which is not typically seen in such colours. You can typically break all of the minifigure elements apart and store them for creation of oriental looking soldiers for your future project. You can see more of the details through the side view. As the Hun Warrior is a specialised horseman, I ought to mount him on a brown horse for that purpose. The mighty Hun Warriors Who is stronger? Historic Warriors 3) The lovely Fairytale Princess The lovely Fairytale Princess is indeed the kind of fictitious character where you are able to see it from fairytale storybooks. So, next time when you are telling bedtime stories to your children, you will definitely need this minifigure to enact the story flow. Seriously, I am very pleased to be able to see such minifigure design appear which is suitable for castle and medieval usage. You can use it for saving the damsel in distress or a heroic knight to the rescue. It is endless imagination. Parts assortment The parts assortment are pretty good. The entire outfit is done in lavender colour which is a very uncommon colour used onto minifigures. You are able to get a nice new hairpiece which is a combination of the tall cone hat and long tied hair, as you can seen from the back view. I am much surprised of the inclusion of the other facial feature which portray a sleepy and yet kind of eager look. Not forgetting to mention that there is a adorable green frog attached to the princess. My wife, Belun love this character very much, not because of the Princess but more love for the green frog instead as she is a huge fan of this particular LEGO element. Shall we open a frog farm? Princesses and their frogs Royal Princess escort How can I wake her up? 4) The unbeatable Video Game Guy The unbeatable Video Game Guy is unbelievable. I can never expect such a minifigure appeared as the form of a LEGO minifigure design. I find it very nice of the designers to actually include a video game enthusiast. I love to play video games very much when I was a teenager and seeing a bespectacled guy holding the game control pad does make it memorable for me. I am sure this minifigure is a welcoming addition to the City minifigure population and hopefully, seeing a gamers' craze as well. Parts assortment The parts assortment is decent and in particular, the Video Game Guy's attire is rather cool looking with its black long sleeve shirt with grey colour at the lower half that imprint 'Player 1', on the centre of the shirt. The minifigure torso manage to utilise the two colour print tone, as seen in the side view that meant to represent the second colour tone, which is the long sleeve shirt in grey colour near the hands. It also come with a dedicated headphones. Music and Games High School Friends Focusing on my RPG game 5) The mythical Battle Goddess The mythical Battle Goddess is one of the minifigure that I look forward the most. Not only because it has similar resemblance to represent the Greek Mythology reference. Truly astounding, to have this powerful Battle Goddess gracing her presence in this series. She wield a long pointy spear and a rounded shield that has the Pegasus (winged horse) picture, imprinted onto it. I could guess that this Battle Goddess seem to represent Athena. She is a Greek Goddess of wisdom, warfare and strategy. Nonetheless, I am extremely thrilled by her presence. Parts assortment The parts assortment are excellent. It come with a long spear, round printed shield with the Pegasus print on it, white skirting and pearl gold helmet with yellowed long curl hair. You can see the full magnificence of of the Battle Goddess in this close up view. There is printing on her armband but do note that the armband does not encompass on her entire wrist. The print only cover up to 50% of it. There is back printing at the back. All in all, it can also be easily modified for other types of battle goddess which is quite generic in nature. I am still amazed with the tons of pearl gold detail on the minifigure itself. Legendary Female Battle Warriors We seek your goddess help 6) The dauntless Space Miner The dauntless Space Miner will not easily give up for the harvest of precious resources to build up the technology of the Classic Space Defenders. He is fully equipped and ready and I wonder if his name is called Licho. This is one of the method, where the designer will sneak in something interesting onto their designs. The colour schema is nicely crafted with a combination of grey and orange to represent the mining specialisation in deep space. The Space Miners venture into dangerous terrains to harvest precious resources to build up the capabilities of the Classic Space Defenders. Parts assortment The parts assortment is good which allow the Space Miner to focus on building up the capabilities of mining resources in deep space. It comes with the orange power drill, armour suit which I am very fond of seeing it appears in the CMFs and mining helmet with visor. You can see many of the details of theSpace Miner in this close up view. By removing the mining helmet, you can see Space Miner facial feature clearly. The insignia of the Classic Space, as seen from the side view, is another huge reason why this minifigure is welcoming to my collection. The Classic Space insignia is the proof that the designers want us to group and integrate many of the previously affiliated Classic Space minifigures in the LEGO CMFs as one umbrella. Actually, if you can do some simple modifications, this minifigure can be more than just a miner and could double up as a Galaxy Patrol. My duty is to protect your safety Classic Space Defenders Expansion of the Classic Space Defenders 7) The suave Lifeguard Ohhh! The suave Lifeguard is finally in town. Catch that hunk at the beach, doing his duty with his gorgeous partner. The dynamic duo will do their best to ensure safety coverage for all beach patrons in the LEGO City. I am very pleased to be able to see a male counterpart for the lifeguard scene since we first saw the female lifeguard in 2010. It certainly took them long enough to take care of her. Either way, I am very pleased to see his appearance. Parts assortment The parts assortment is decent and the inclusion of the binoculars and the burnside buoy which will aid his rescue. I like his wavy looking hairstyle and the nice colour shades on his face. The muscular tone body will also serve to be useful for minifigures' customisation, not restricting it to lifeguard occupation. By taking a closer view of the Lifeguard, you may notice on his legs that there is an initials, 'J.T' on it which is similar to the previous female lifeguard, with 'G.T'. It is certainly used to hint some sort of relations somewhere somehow. You can also notice from his side view of the red printed shorts. Beach Lifeguards Duo Watching out the safety of the beach patrons 8) The successful Prospector Look who is in town? It is none other but the successful Prospector. He must have struck big. The Prospector is someone who explored an area for mineral deposits such as gold, silver ores, oil, etc. He will bring his iron picket and whack the ground in search of such deposits. He may look like a grumpy old fellow but if you look carefully, he may have struck 'gold' afterall especially if you have taken a careful look at his teeth. Parts assortment The parts assortment is average. The best feature of this Prospector is actually his worn torn brown hat, and it is more visible by seeing it from the side view. It is rather nifty to some extent. You can also view the rest of his accessories added together in this close up view. All in all, it is a good minifigure if you are in the Wild West Theme, which is much suitable for such settings. Wild Wild West 9) The humourous Jester What will probably happen when a humourous Jester appear in the royal court? It will either be a burst of laughter or total disaster. Which will be the case, and it is up to us to decide the story. Since the first introduction of the Jester in 2008, I have been enjoying the usage of different type of Jesters including the 7953 Court Jester to crack some humourous acts to entertain the royal family, which is most probably the viable entertainment in the medieval ages. In this case, the re-introduction of the Jester is a pleasant surprise with a very distinct colour combination of orange and purple. Such usage of these bright colours are definitely bound to attract audience. Parts assortment The parts assortment are very good. The design of the Jester are highly detailed, as you can see in this close up view and in this view as well. What totally amaze me, is the superb lovely LEGO printed tiles - Playing Cards design. It is brilliant to be able to the Jester holding these cards to entertain the audiences. Who is funnier? Let me entertain you 10) The fearsome Dino Tracker In the recent years, LEGO has explored the Dinosaurs Theme through Dino 2010/Dino Attack in 2005 and Dino in 2012 as a full pledged LEGO System sets play themes. It is a pleasant surprise for me to actually see a female Dino Tracker as a warrior equivalent. She will track all sorts of Dinosaurs such as the Coelophysis, Raptor, T-Rex, etc; in her bingo book and lock them down before transporting them to the quarantine area for processing. Do not mess with her sophisticated black bow and tranquillizer syringe. Parts assortment The parts assortment are pretty good. I find it quite a surprise to see a Hawkeye exclusive weapon being used in the Dino Tracker choice of weapon. The torso of the Dino Tracker is very suitable for military or jungle warfare customisation related, as seen in this close up view. From the side view, it is visible to see the new two tone printed colours on the arms that illustrates the short sleeves. To round it up, the Dino Tracker also have a nice back printing to make it a much better torso for military related usages. Don't shoot us! Let's get that dino! Bring this dino into the cage? 11) The punctual Pizza Delivery Guy Many of the City fans are very glad to be able to see a new design of this Pizza Delivery Guy. He is like a typical teenager, working part-time as a Pizza Delivery Guy. His appearance is pretty kiddish looking with the freckles and braces on his face. That is quite some amount of printing details in there. I can still recall one of my favourite Classic Town set, known as the 6350 Pizza-To-Go, where the delivery guy works for this famous "Pizzeria". Well, for this new outlet known as "Pizza", is very much similar and hopefully attract more pizza lovers within the City. Parts assortment The parts assortment is above average. You are able to get two new exclusive prints of the supposedly pepperoni pizza and a pizza box, as seen held by the Pizza Delivery Guy. The torso is filled with nice details including the two tone printing of green and yellow. His green polo tee-shirt also revealed some slight grease near the bottom of his shirt. Even the red cap, is consistent with the corporate image of the brand, "Pizza". This is not the pizza that I have ordered LEGO Food and Beverage Industry Check out this new Pizza outlet 12) The cool Rock Star It is a sweet surprise for musical fans who are into rock genre. He is the upcoming shining cool Rock Star that will woo the hearts of many. The Rock Star entire outfit is just brilliant with his jet black gloss looking facade. With his confident and charismatic look, he will rock the stage with many rock hits. I could certainly imagine placing him with the other fellow Rock Stars, Singers and Performance Artists. Parts assortment The parts assortment are slightly above average. The main attraction for his accessory could be his scarlet electric guitar which is his priceless crown jewel for his performance. His entire rock studded leather outfit is highly detailed, as you can see in this close up view, plus his physical appearance is much mature looking with the unexpected inclusion of the chest hair. You can see more of his printing details from the side view. His back view kind of portray a cool stoic looking. All in all, I am pleased with the overall design. Age of Rock Music Blue meets Rock Smashing Hits 13) The heroic Swashbuckler On guard! Oh well, this isn't supposed to be a Musketeer equivalent. Instead, this heroic Swashbuckler is probably appeared in the 16th century and has been coined as a term for pirates and swordsmen ever since. A possible inference of the origin of "Swashbuckler" is that it may develop from a form of fighting style by utilising a cutlass or short sword with a buckler in the off-hand, which was applied with much "swashing and making a noise on the buckler". It is generally describes as a protagonist who is heroic and idealistic to the bone and who rescues damsels in distress. His opponent is typically characterised as the dastardly villain. Swashbuckler normally combine outstanding courage, sword-fighting skill, resourcefulness, chivalry and a distinctive sense of honour and justice traits. Parts assortment The parts assortment are slightly below average. It is rather similar with the Musketeers design template. It only come with a different colour of the hat in brown colour and pearl gold rapier. Not really very fantastic, and I much prefer the torso which I can apply it onto the Pirates settings. Heroic Deeds You will not escape me once more 14) The adorable Piggy Guy The person in the Piggy suit is just simply too adorable. At first, I really thought that the person in the mascot is a female until I found out the official name for it. It turn out to be a Piggy Guy. His facial appearance made him look very approachable and friendly. I am very elated to see the furry mascots expanded to include a new member in the animal furry series. The pig detail is spot-on and is easily recognisable as well. I am very confident that this minifigure will be very popular with children and even adults, in this case. Parts assortment The parts assortment is average and the main focus is the outline of the Piggy Guy, as you can see in this close up view. As seen from the side view, the head reveal the pig's ears and eyes. Even from his back printing, where there is a nice pig tail. In this piggy suit, there is no zip at the back which allow the person to wear it on. I believe the guy could just have to make do and slot himself into the suit directly. Our furry animals get a new addition Oink Oink!!! 15) The mysterious Genie Girl The appearance of the mysterious Genie Girl, perhaps will be a mystery of her true origin. It is a wonder to be able to finally see a female counterpart of a Genie since we have last seen this Genie. I am very pleased to see a human which is not quite fully human, instead her upper half of her body is made up of human composition while the bottom half is much mythical or genie composition. Thus, it is really very nice to see this design appearing again in a different light. The first time that I saw this character, it kind of remind me of an American sitcom in the 1960s, known as I dream of Jeannie. Somehow or another, it gave such a flavour by associating with it. Parts assortment The parts assortment are not too bad including the placement of the genie lamp where she probably resides or being trapped in. Her minifigure parts are very versatile which will allow a simple change of genie bottom half to a walking pair of legs. You will be getting something of an exotic dancer or an attractive female with her long tied straight yellow hair. Do note that the Genie Girl has back printing as well. Meet Miss Genie! Emmet, I will grant you '3' wishes! Storybook Characters 16) The silent Spooky Girl She is certainly one of my favourite female characters in this LEGO CMFs Series 12. It seem like they are saving the best for the last. Firstly, I find it incredibly hard to believe that the designers have actually able to design such a character. Well, to put it simply, she is the silent Spooky Girl. She has the Gothic appearance with a little bit of creepiness, as you can see from her attire where the spider seem to be creeping out of her pocket. I really felt that she could be much suitable as a resident within the Monster Fighters Theme. It is just unbelievable to have such an incredible and real-like design within the LEGO CMFs Series, where I don't think we can ever see it elsewhere apart from here. Personally, this minifigure is the kind where you either like it or hate it. Parts assortment The parts assortment are excellent. The dark grey skirting is a nice detailed touch which surrounds her body. The spooky teddy bear in black and white, is rather unique with the eyes. I really wonder what did the girl do to the precious teddy bear. You can see her closely holding onto the teddy bear. Anyway, who doesn't like a new teddy bear variations? We are having a steady increase of different type of teddy bear designs where it may just be enough to open a teddy bear store through the cumulative efforts of the LEGO CMFs releases. LEGO Teddy Bears variants Respective Owners New girl in the school campus Nice to meet you Spooky Characters General Statistics for 71007 LEGO Minifigures - The LEGO Collectable Minifigures Series 12 Below is the combination which I have received from my box, 4 Wizards 3 Hun Warriors 3 Fairytale Princesses 5 Video Game Guys 4 Battle Goddesses 5 Space Miners 3 Lifeguards 3 Prospectors 3 Jesters 4 Dino Trackers 4 Pizza Delivery Guys 4 Rock Stars 5 Swashbucklers 4 Piggy Guys 3 Genie Girls 3 Spooky Girls Based on the above distribution, I have managed to achieve only three full complete sets of 16 one-of-a kind minifigures each. It means I will have 12 remaining random spares left. Read down to find out what are the remaining spares I have. My remaining spares 1 Wizards 0 Hun Warriors 0 Fairytale Princesses 2 Video Game Guys 1 Battle Goddesses 2 Space Miners 0 Lifeguards 0 Prospectors 0 Jesters 1 Dino Trackers 1 Pizza Delivery Guys 1 Rock Stars 2 Swashbucklers 1 Piggy Guys 0 Genie Girls 0 Spooky Girls 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 three maximum complete unique sets. Ever since the LEGO Minifigures - The Simpsons have miraculously returned with a three complete sets, the LEGO CMFs Series 12 has continued the best ideal situation of having three full sets in a box of 60. I am certainly pleased that it continues to cater for such configuration as the LEGO CMFs evolved in each new releases. I felt the appeal of the minifigures are taken into best and ideal situation out of their considerations and limitations. The lesser appeal of the minifigures such as the Prospector, Jester, Genie Girl, Lifeguard do not need to have many identical minifigures around and is suitable for the distribution ratio of three. However, it is best if the Hun Warrior can be given a distribution ratio of five and the Princess to have a higher distribution ratio other than three. In the case of the distribution ratio of four, I am very pleased to see the Wizard, Battle Goddess, Piggy Guy and Dino Tracker to be given such ratio since these could be potential army building minifigures. I certainly do not mind if the Rock Star or Pizza Delivery Guy to be given a lower ratio in order to give it to other highly desired minifigures. As for the distribution ratio of five, I am neutral with the choice given, even though I really hope it can give the quota from the distribution ratio of four. Well, I can certainly see that many popular minifigures that could be potential army building. What do you think? All in all, I think they did a pretty good job in this distribution allocation. Kudo to you guys! What do you guys think about this round of distribution? Do you share the same sentiments as I do? To conclude and summaries, based on the probability demonstrated by this review, as an example, here are the results, High probability 1) Video Game Guys 2) Space Miners 3) Swashbucklers Total range: 25% Each: 8.33% Medium probability 1) Wizards 2) Battle Goddesses 3) Dino Trackers 4) Pizza Delivery Guys 5) Rock Stars 6) Piggy Guys Total range: 40% Each: 6.67% Low probability 1) Hun Warriors 2) Fairytale Princesses 3) Lifeguards 4) Prospectors 5) Jesters 6) Genie Girls 7) Spooky Girls Total range: 35% Each 5% The LEGO Collectable Minifigures Series 12 will be launching on the 1st October 2014 or 1st November 2014 (worldwide) To conclude, the LEGO Collectable Minifigures Series 12 has done an outstanding and remarkable effort to introduce more new interesting and relevant minifigures designs into this new Minifigures Series. It is no easy feat to be able to introduce many creative and original designs to appeal to the masses. The LEGO Collectable Minifigures Series or known as LEGO Minifigures Theme is an unique commanding class of their own, which distinguish themselves from regular LEGO Theme or special releases. Instead, everything that you have seen in a single released series is all based on the 16 minifigures to reach out to fans, children, adults and collectors of LEGO. It has been a very long tradition and yet they are able to retain the charm and excitement, until today. I will like to point out something and bring to your attention. The quality of the LEGO Collectable Minifigures Series is certainly made up of high quality ABS plastic which we are very familiar with, in the print aspect with a slight matt feeling. However, I will like to highlight that I do not see any marked indent at the armpit of the minifigures which we will normally associate the production to somewhere in Mainland China, similar to the LEGO Simpsons Minifigures phenomenon. In fact, the entire production for this series is purely carried out in Mainland, China as indicated in the back of the packet. All in all, I personally find the quality to be on-par with the high standards of the regular LEGO minifigures. I don't really understand if the removal of the marked indent is intentional or something could have improved or change at the end of the production process. Nothing can be certain and it could be just my pure wild conjecture. Now with a total of 224 minifigures released for the entire Series 1 to 11, the recent LEGO Movie Series, LEGO Simpsons Series and the current LEGO Collectable Minifigures Series 12, not including Mr. Gold which unfortunately I do not have the blessings or lucky stars to own it and the special exclusive Toy Soldier minifigure that can only be obtained through The Minifigures Character Encylopedia. This entire LEGO Minifigures theme had truly evolved and transformed to a brand new endless dimension which I strongly believe will continue to marvel all of us with their future releases, in time to come. With this LEGO Collectable Minifigures Series 12 in the releasing pipeline, I can't help but to contemplate what does TLG have install for us in the near future. Only time will tell. Please note that the The LEGO Collectable Minifigures Series 12 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 (More new LEGO Collectable Minifigures integration across many new and existing themes/settings.) Design: 8.5/10 (Good detailed prints of the two tone printing at the arms to increase the detail and limited new LEGO minifigures' parts and accessories and rehash of existing parts in different colour.) Price: 7.5/10 (I believe pricing will remain the same for Singapore, but I have understand that the prices have went up for other regions and if that is true, this will definitely go lower by a notch.) Overall: 8/10 (Another high scoring for the LEGO CMFs which it is definitely worth buying and collecting these new minifigures.) I gave it a "5" based on my Review Score Card. What about yours?
