Series 6 and 7 Collectible Minifigs

October 16, 2011

The pictures have already been circulating the internet, but up until now I’ve been too busy to post them.

A toy website has jumped the gun a little bit by revealing a picture of not only the Series 6 Collectible Minifigures, but also the Series 7.

Series 6

Series 7

I have to admit, I’d seen Series 6 already, but not this particular image. I had already been drooling over those minifigs coming out before I saw Series 7.

There is almost too many cool figs and new elements for me to talk about without going into a long list of awesomeness. 😀

Okay, that may be a little cheesy, but there really are so many wonderful new parts coming out! It may be a bit painful to the wallet, but I’m sure I’ll be getting a full set of each and probably multiples of quite a few. 😉

Trick or Treat

Trick or Treat

Somebody had to do it sooner or later, but Matthew Hurt got to it first. 🙂

He used several of the Collectible Minifigures as trick or treaters hunting for candy on all hollows eve.

I like how he used the tiles and pumpkin’s heads as candy bags. And the house isn’t too bad either. 😉

Great job Matthew!

Collectible LEGO Minifigs Series 1 Contest

May 25, 2010

Eurobricks is holding a Vignette Contest all about the Collectible Minifigure. The catch? It has to be a City vignette and you don’t actually put the minifigure its made for in it.

What You’re Building
Create a town based vignette where you could display any one of the 16 new Collectible Minifigs from Series 1. It’s just that simple. I’m not even going to provide examples for risk of taking a good idea, but I’ll tell you this: Imagination is the key. People vote for creative entries, not the same old boring scenes we all expect. Do something surprising, just make sure it’s town based.

From what has already been posted there are a lot of creative builders out there. For a complete set of rules and prizes check out Eurobricks. The contest will end on June 6th, 2010. So if you want to participate, get building. 😉

LEGO’s Collectable Minifigs Homepage

April 28, 2010

LEGO.com has a new section all about everyone’s favorite new Minifigures. Not only do we get to see what each one looks like, we also get to know the official names of all the figures (like we couldn’t figure out most of them ourselves).

Collect all 16 unique LEGO minifigures!

Each minifigure comes in a sealed “mystery” bag, so you never know which minifigure you might get. And each minifigure has its own special accessories, display plate and collector’s leaflet. Inspired by movies, sports, history and just everyday life, this collection includes: Demolition Dummy, Forestman, Cowboy, Super Wrestler, Zombie, Ninja, Cheerleader, Skater, Tribal Hunter, Circus Clown, Magician, Deep Sea Diver, Robot, Nurse, Caveman, and Spaceman.

The most interesting name of the 16 is “Tribal Hunter”, I guess they didn’t want to offend any one. 😀

Not only can you find out each figure’s name, but you can also read a bio about each figure. Some of them are actually pretty funny.

“Like a shadow in the night, I – oops!”

Stealthy. Sneaky. A cunning master of martial arts. None of these things describes the Ninja, although he sure wishes they did. He tries his best to dramatically blend into the shadows or hide in plain sight like all the other ninjas can, but no matter what he does, he always seems to mess things up. The truth is that he’s just plain clumsy, and no matter how gracefully he may start a back-flip, creep along the rafters or launch himself into an epic sword battle, healways manages to trip over his own feet, fall off the ceiling, or bonk himself on the head with his ancient and mystical blade. Also, he’s afraid of the dark.

No one is quite sure how the Ninja ever managed to graduate from ninja school. But no matter how bad he may be at his chosen profession, he always keeps trying and never gives up, convinced after each blunder that the next time, he will prove himself a true ninja warrior for the ages.

SlyOwl has pushed the envelope of building once again! His latest creation with its angled slopes, incredible landscaping and plant techniques not to mention the jaw-dropping interior of the mountain side puts his model leaps and bounds above others.

There’s so much going on here I don’t even know what to pick as the highlights. 😀

Great job SlyOwl and keep the models coming! 🙂
