Life’s a Beach

September 3, 2010

Life's a Beach

Joshua Morris is known for his elaborate and creative MOCs (My Own Creations) and his newest is no exception. At first glance it looks like a pretty simple beach scene that he made primarily to show off all his new Collectible Minifigure Series 2 figs. But as you look closer you see the level of detail he’s put into this model.

I love how the Pharaoh is making sphinx and the Spartan is making a sand castle. 🙂

The wave the surfer is riding is an excellent use of a simple curving technique.

Great job Joshua!

Eurobricks Raffel and Mystery Treasure Hunt

August 30, 2010

Just like everyone else, the members of Eurobricks are searching for the new Series 2 Collectible Minifigures. But they are doing it in a fun and interesting way. A combination of a scavenger hunt and a raffle all rolled into one their newest contest is a bit of both. If you’ve been drooling to get your hands on the Pop Singer, Karate Master, Pharaoh, or any of the other figures this might be your chance.

They are systematically unveiling a figure a day and giving you a hint at where in the vast Eurobricks forums to find them. Once all 16 are revealed (they are on figure #5) you have to compile a list of the exact link of where the figures are and send it in. If your list is correct then you get put in the raffle for a chance to win one of the 16 figures.

I guess I’m not all that good at guessing the clues, I only found the first one so far and the others seem to stump me pretty good. Not that I’ve tried very hard. 😉

If you are not already a member of Eurobricks, then unfortunately you can’t enter. But if you are, this is a fun and interesting way to win one of the new figures. You can read all the official rules of the contest and then get hunting. Good luck! 🙂

LEGO Collectible Minifigures Series 2

May 18, 2010

Grogall of Eurobricks has provided us with the first hi-res images of the LEGO Collectible Minifigures Series 2.

There are quite a few wonderful gems in this set. The Pharaoh, the Centurion, and the Surfer all look really cool. I have to say, one of my favorites is the Karate master with the trophy. 🙂

The coolest thing is that when I was at Bricks by the Bay Mads Nipper said that the plan for these collectible minifigures is to have two series a year until they either run out of ideas or they stop being popular. From the vast popularity that is already evident both on and off the internet I don’t think that will happen anytime soon. 😉

Collectible Minifigure Series 2

February 7, 2010

Although we have yet to see the first wave of these Collectible Minifigures which are set to be available in June, the first images of the Series 2 are already showing up thanks to the Toy Fairs. Proceed drooling now — 😀

This is by no means an official list but it does mention a couple more figures you can’t see in the picture:

– female lifeguard (Baywatch minifig)
– vampire
– judo fighter (with a great detail: a mini-trophy that looks like a mini-figure)
– Mexican with Sombrero
– 70s like guy with black curly hair
– witch
– Pharaoh
– Roman (or Greek) soldier
– surfer
– guy with skis
– female singer
– weightlifter
– thief
– ringmaster

One assortment contains 60 figures. Each assortment is planned to contain all 16 figures, but there may be 10 of a certain figure and only 3 of another.

Series one is supposed to be out in June as we all know, the second series in September will be packed in blue bags by the way.

These Collectible Minifigures are making me excited about minifigs again. And all the fun new elements that these figures have makes me even more excited! 🙂
