J4ck posted a topic in Special LEGO ThemesHere are the estimated set numbers (see below), what are our predictions Bois and Grills? Most likely The Lego Movie 2 Series 1 for January. I’m predicting another 2:1 ratio of Licensed to Regular (includes themed). : Series 19 - August/September 2019
Here is my video review + feel guide on series 19: 1. Video Game Champ Lovely new game controller piece. (but realise it looks great but not practical because the figure wont be able to hold it both hands XD) Very nicely printed torso. 2. Shower Guy Love the blushing facial expression. Interesting print under the bath towel. Green rubber duck is less useful than the yellow one. 3. Fright Knight Great new clear sword piece. The real gem of this figure is the printed torso underneath the armour. 4. Monkey King Excellent printing and details through out. Surprised to see 2 different facial expressions. Not sure if regions that are not familiar with Journey to West will appreciate the details put into this figure. 5. Programmer Nice easter egg on the torso print. The little robot is also interesting and useful outside CMF. 6. Mummy Queen Nice printings and the print quality is good. Accessory is a bit bland and not really that keen to have 5 of them in a box. 7. Jungle Explorer Great Chameleon! Nice to see new colour of this type of back pack. 8. Fire Fighter I like the new fire fighter cap with hair moulded to it. A big light in terms of accessory. 9. Dog Sitter LEGO POOP! love it! Not one but TWO DOGS!!! Also interesting facial expression too. 10. Pizza Costume Guy Like the new face. Will appeal to food costume collectors but other wise nothing surprising here. I guess every one saw this one coming when the water melon guy released with LEGO MOVIE 2 CMF. 11. Galactic Bounty Hunter Very detailed printing again. Love the use of clear red piece for the tablet. 12. Gardner LEGO flamengo!!! Great new torso prints and legs. Also love the new colour of this hair piece. 13. Rugby Player Love bland at first glance but the facial expressions are brilliant. Would be better to include an extra hair piece. 14. Fox Costume Girl Probably a left over from the LEGO MOVIE 2 CMF? Like the colouring. One of the face expression is really evil if you consider there is a chicken included. 15. Bear Costume Guy Like the face underneath the costume. Great rainbow piece! very useful to combine with the 1x1 square rainbow tile. 16. Mountain Biker Surprised to see a bike included. (Too easy to feel) Great new helmet with hair moulded to it. Overall, I like this series. I'm genuinely surprised on the number of double sided face and animals in this series. Some of the printings are exceptionally well done. It's great to see no more rare figure and if you are looking for the whole box, you do get 3 complete sets. And if you are just looking for individual figure, this series isn't that hard to feel either. Personally, my favourites are the Dog Sitter and the Monkey King. The fright knight's torso printing is a surprise for me, the went extra mile on that. The weakest in my opinion is probably the Mummy Queen but this is just me. It's hard for me to not recommend this to everyone because minifigures are always great. Now time for me to get more extra Dog sitter so I can make some moc heavily feature poops XD
CMFanatic replied to J4ck's topic in Special LEGO ThemesSo in this topic, I thought it would be fun to ask the community at large what they think of the leaked Series 19 photos. I know I'll be getting around 11 or so of the 16 - and I want to know what ya'll want and what you think they left out! Also, Robert8, they've made some of your "hopefuls"! Including Shower Guy, Ghost Knight, Pizza Suit Guy and Rugby Player! Are you excited? Do you think they borrowed your ideas? I loved your posts and copied photos of all your series ideas for my user phot and PC backgrounds! (Do you mind? 'Cause if you do, I'll trade them out...) Sooooo.....this series looks like it's going to be packaged in the newer type "tall" bags that they started with The LEGO Movie 2. Shucks, I wish they'd stuck with the original versions....but maybe that means we'll get some extra pieces! I would like that. It also means that the minifigs will be a little easier to feel out, becase the bag is thinner. But it also means that we'll have to be more careful to not puncture the bags when trying really hard to figure out a piece. (That has happened to me before....and people get really mad.) So here are MY personal ratings for these minifigures: Place #1: This would have to be the Showering Guy (#2). Frankly, we needed something candid like this. Unfortunately (for me, at least) most other series minifigures, don't feature people doing stuff at home. (There are only 2 exceptions: Babysitter (Series 16) and Sleepyhead (Series 6), who both were minifigures that would be more around-the-house characters.) Anyways, that new rubber ducky piece is SWEET! I love the bath towel piece, too. I wonder if LEGO made him be wearing underwear beneath? I would certainly hope so... *shudder* It would go hand-in-hand with their "kid-friendly" attitude to make this guy with underwear. So let's cross our fingers....🤞 I bet LEGO's official "Minifig Profile" will have something about him liking to sing in the shower. I believe that he has a reversible head, too - if you compare the leaked photo of the packet and the poster, the heads are different. Place #2: Gotta be Pizza Suit Guy (#10). I mean, the minute my 8 siblings and I saw The LEGO Movie 2 series at Walmart (our version of ASDA, guys) and saw Watermelon Suit Guy, I said "I bet there's a pizza suit guy in the next series!"Well, it's nearly always fun to be right. And the pizza guy will go well with the Series 12 Pizza Delivery Guy! Love the pizza box (or poster - kinda hard to tell...) and the (apparently?) fully printed legs - a first for any suit person. Place #3: Video Game Guy (#1). I can see this minifigure being quite useful for LEGO brickfilms - perhaps I can film a more kid-friendly spoof of "Dude! Where's My Car?" with a modern context. I'm definitely getting several. This was apparently another tie-in with Series 12's Video Game Guy - only modernized? I love the Xbox controller piece and the Star Wars pilot hair recolored! Place #4 is fairly equally tied between the Pooper Scooper (#9), the Biologist -? (#7) and Fox Suit Person (#14). (The photo is low-res, so I can't tell if it's Fox Guy or Fox Girl. Time will tell, I guess!) I like all three for their animal accessories - I was hoping LEGO would make a dachshund and they did! The recolor of the bulldog is sweet, and the chameleon is great! I also needed some chickens for a short brickfilm but they were soooo expensive that I passed. (Maybe I can dig up the dusty script from somewhere...) I liked the reference to Fox Suit Person in The LEGO Movie 2! (Look at Queen Whatevra's wedding scenes very closely.....) I like it when LEGO makes two or three suit people in a series, so this one has a good balance. (Series 18 was just overkill...) Place #5 goes to the Rugby Player. I mean, who DOESN't like this guy? LEGO finally gave us a ball for a sports minifig! That much I'm happy about! I also think this minifig has a reversible head, based on comparisons of the packet front and the poster. And it means I can do a football/rugby brickfilm! Yay! Place #6 would be Retiree (#12). I know that many of ya'll, since you're not from the US, wouldn't get this reference but it's a "typically American" type minifigure. (Which I think is only fair, because while Europe has gotten sooooo many cool minifigures associated with its rich history, us Americans have one minifigure: Abraham Lincoln. Who wasn't even that great.) Anyways, that pink flamingo piece is epic! I've gotta get at least two of her...Maybe next series they'll make a Flamingo Suit Person! OK, now we're in the second half of the series - the ones I don't like that much. However, it usually ends up that I get more than one of the ones I initially don't like, so perhaps I'll get the first 3 here? Anyways, let's go: Place #7 is the Robotics Person (#5). Now, while the little robot build and the recolor of the computer piece are both cool, this minifigure could have just been in a people pack or something for all I care. For starters, the hair doesn't look very realistic, compared to styles I've seen. It's OK, though. Also, the minifig doesn't appear to be wearing a belt, which is sad: I always like minifigs with belts. Can't tell what's on the front of the shirt, but I bet it's three lines of computer code that would spell out the name of a designer or something. (I'll check it out when we get higher-res photos, guys!) Place #8 goes to the Fire Cheifette (#8). And yes, I know that "Chiefette" is not a word. However, I don't particularly like this minifig because we already have a TON of Fire people from the City theme (and more released every year!) so why make another one? I do like the horn, though. The hat/hair combo is good enough to warrant spending $4.25 (with tax) on this one...I guess. We'll see. Place #9 goes to the Mountain Biker Girl (#16). This is another minifigure that puzzles me - why make another mountain biker and not just stick it into a People Pack? And we already had a female mountain biker in the "Fun Outdoors" people pack....why make another one so soon afterwards? At least it'll be easy to feel out. The bike is the real draw here, because of the recolor (and the possibility of getting some motorcycle wheels that aren't damaged...) The hat'hair combo is OK, but not enough to get the minifig for, otherwise. Now we're getting to the really bad ones - the ones that I don't even know why they made them in this series. (there are usually a few of these in every series...sadly.) I rate them all the same - BAD. We have the Female Mummy (#6), Ghost Knight (#3), Monkey King (#4), Evil Drone -? (#11) and Rainbow Panda (#15). The rainbow panda is the one I have the biggest problem with - why have a recolor of the Panda hat? This minifigure doesn't even have any good defining characteristics, either....except that she's gaudy. The Ghost knight is also just a weird minifig - though i must admit that the transparent blue sword almost makes it worthwhile. But really, we have 3 knights already (and not to mention several entire themes about them) so why make another one? And the Evil Mech...really, LEGO? Why another "evil space thing in a suit"? Haven't we seen enough of these already? Come on..... (I bet you can tell that I don't like fantasy themed minifigs that much. And it's true - though a Doctor Who series or a Sci-fi series would both be cool things.) Anyways, what do ya'll think? Be sure to message me what your "Top 5" are and I'll make a list when they come out of which ones are the highest rated! Signin' off, Nathan
