Those look cool.

The images are faked, or edited though. Unless Lego has changed how the figures legs are made, there's no way to get a lot of those poses.

Some of them have seemed pretty neat, but I'm not really about to buy a ton of mystery packs in the hope that I get one I want.

I thought so too but they seem to exist.

I bought a mystery pack for my son. It was the computer programmer (I told him his name is Cyril). I get a couple for myself and they're the cowboy/bank robber and the stunt man.

We've also got the lizard man and the gladiator. Man I spend way more on Lego than I should.

Link only goes to the writer's favorite figures from all the Collectible Mini-Figure series offerings. I was hoping it'd be an all-time list, with the Classic Space guy (any/all of the five colors) comfortably scoring the #1 position!

Nope..they're just stylized. The lego figures are the same as they ever were.

I like the minotaur, fisherman, and aztec warrior.

Yeah, they tease the legs on a lot of those to make them look like the 'animated LEGO figure' style, but except for that creative license they're pretty exact representations.

Some great ones, some goofy ones.

The expression on the Hazmat guy's face is too funny

I've got the guy in a gorilla costume. Same day I got him, I decided to pick up an Empire State Building from the architect series. It works.

Last year, my aunt got me some of the Series 4 random packs for my birthday (I hadn't heard of these series before then). They're all pretty cool, but the one that caught my eye was what they called "Hazmat guy", but it was right after the Fukushima meltdown, so it seemed a little more specific than that. It's probably just coincidence, but I can't find any exact release date for Series 4 to see if it would've been possibly intentional.

I wonder if they have ever thought about going to a ball and socket hip for minfigs. Outside of tooling replacement costs it seems like a cheaper process. The hip shaft seems like it would be more difficult to tool than a ball. And the leg sets already have a female connection so you juggle the release point and cooling that the plastic contracts slighly for a clean tool release.....

Due to the timing it is just coincidence. That didn't stop me from putting the hazmat headgear on the geisha minifig that came in the same series.

Toys R Us, Target, Walmart. Better to go to a brick and mortar store than to order them online since online purchases of packs are random. At the stores, you can either use the bubble code to determine which minifigure is inside, or an easier method is by touch. Of course, people will look at you funny as you are molesting the crap outta the packages. :P

2. Search "lego minifigures"

My boy has basically every Lego set that forms a vehicle (aside from a few of the super wimpy city sets and the total dork sets like cars and whatnot) and we never ever buy minifigs. Maybe a few of the $100 plus sets he doesn't have, but he does have UCS X Wing (greatest lego set BTW), a big Y wing that I think might be UCS, UCS Naboo fighter, and every Star Destroyer set except 6211 (I can't believe I know that one by number). And we will have 6211 some time soon hopefully so he can have 5 star destroyers, from huge to big to medium to small to tiny.

He got the Luke at the medal ceremony when he got the Lego encyclopedia, and he has a gang of Ninjagos (the cartoon is actually not terrible).

The best IMO are the guys who have survived from my early 80's sets. The classic space guys from above, and the guy in the black with the visor. I remember my first set with one of those guys, man was he cool.

Legos are the best toys a kid could ever have. You build something cool, and then you appreciate it for a while, and then tear it apart and build something new (except UCS sets which never get taken apart in my house). Imagination, fine motor skills, dedication (takes time to find the pieces among the huge bin of pieces), etc.

Or you can go to bricklink.com. I have some in my store there but others have all the series.

I generally collect the UCS sets. Imagine moving with them. My star destroyer mainly survived but the Death Star 2 turned into a pile of bricks. Months later I cannot bring myself to put it back together.

You should hang a few X-wings and Y-wings flying away from it.

Man, I have really been wanting lego lately, but I've been holding out because I don't have a kid yet. That minotaur might be the tipping point. I've also seen a set with a book-style box at Barnes and Noble that has a skeletal horse. SKELETAL.HORSE.

Here's a little bit of my collection:

i1188.photobucket.com

I have most of the Superheroes and a ton of Star Wars ones. I have Jack Sparrow and Barbossa. But I am most proud of my Indiana Jones and his Dad minifigs. But what I most want is a Lando Calrissian minifig, and a Green Lantern one (but apparently Green Lantern was a comic con exclusive limited to 1500).

I bought the UCS X wing and UCS Naboo fighter at a yard sale. . . . .

For 20 dollars. . . . .

Total. . . . .

Also got the hellfire droid (the big one) and the small size AT-ST.

Best yard sale purchase ever.

I had another one where I bought the full size Unicron TF figure for 1 dollar.

I could have had 6211 off CL for like 40 bucks, but I was slow to pull the trigger.
 
2012-06-26 03:43:22 PM  
Unless I missed something, the new LOTR sets look really disappointing.
 
2012-06-26 03:49:51 PM  
I have a shiatload of LEGO sets as well. Most are Star Wars, but I have some from other lines.

6211 is a great set, but it's horribly, horribly fragile. If you get it, be sure to add a few more plates on the bottom so it doesn't fall apart. The 8039 Venator is a very solid build, but isn't really representative of the screen version.

I still have the 6210 Sail Barge to build, also the jungle temple set from Raiders of the Lost Ark. :)

And before it goes away, 10188 Death Star will be mine. Oh yes, it will be mine.

Still need to get a few of the Super Heroes sets, although the current Batman sets are poor rehashes of the versions from 5-6 years ago.

I don't have kids, but I broke down for some of the new Lord of the Rings sets. Shelob actually has movable legs -- much more advanced models than when I was a kid.

My son's got Tarzan, the girl astronaut, the grey alien, Sherlock Holmes, an aerobics instructor lady, and some others I can't remember. He actually plays with them as opposed to "collecting" them. I'm sure we'll regret that in 20 years when they are all lost.

I saw some of those at the Lego store in Chicago earlier in the year. I wanted them so bad, but they only came in sets and some of the sets were relatively expensive. I couldn't justify shelling out hundreds of dollars for a few figures. But they are cool though!

Me too. You never know these days. That image used to be posted in just about every hot-girl thread without a problem. But now you never know whether the mods are in a PG-13 mood, a PG mood, or a G mood. I thought about it for a minute before posting, and decided to have faith that Fark hasn't become quite that Disney-fied (yet).
