"This series of minifigures is based from The LEGO Movie. I am very impressed with the great variety of characters. I will review each minifig and how to feel for the one you are especially looking for when you see them in the store.
Calamity Drone is based on the old west. "She" has a block dress, shotgun/rifle, hat, and blonde hair piece. I like that her arms are robot silver and the detailing of the torso and dress are very nice. Feel for the block legs (Wyldstyle also has the block leg piece) so verify it by feeling for the hat or rifle.
President Business is wearing a grey suit with a red tie. He has a dual printed face and an Octan Oil coffe mug. The "boxy" hair piece is unique to this minifig. The easiest piece to feel is the mug.
Hard Hat Emmet is the hero of the movie. Here he comes with his instruction manual and also has a dual printed face. One side is happy and the other is laughing. His torso has double printing and his name tag is printed on his leg. Feel for the hard hat and instruction book.
Old West Wyldstyle is one of my favorites in this series. She has very detailed printing on her torso and dress. She also has a black fan, block legs, and colored hair. Feel for the block legs and verify by feeling the fan or pony tail from her hair.
Abe Lincoln is really cool. He has his tall top hat with attached beard and comes with a printed tile of the Gettysburg Address. Feel for the hat and square tile.
Mrs. Scratch-Em-Post is an interesting minifig. She is packaged with a cat and has long gray hair. I like her pink sweater with the face of a cat. I think the cat hair printed on her torso and legs is a nice touch. Feel for the long hair piece and cat.
Bad Cop is another minifig with a dual printed head. One side has his sunglasses and frown and the other side has a scribble smile face. His uniform is very detailed with the zippers of all the pockets on his coat. He also comes with a cell phone and handcuffs. Feel for the handcuffs, helmet, and tile.
William Shakesphere is another master builder minifigure. Again the detailing on his torso and legs is very well designed. He also comes with the ruffled colar that the Sad Clown and Actor from past series. His hairpiece is unique and he also comes with a tile and feather pen. Feel for the round collar and square tile. To build or not to build...
Gail the construction worker has a pony tail connected to her hard hat. She also comes with a pile driver. Her face also has dirt marks from a hard days work on the construction site. Feel for the pile driver and hat with pony tail.
Larry the barista is a unique minifigure. He was a cool hair piece and comes with a coffee cup. The cup is a new accessory. He has a detailed apron on the front torso and legs. Feel for the smooth and small cup.
Velma Staplebot is President Business's assistant. She is a robot with an interesting yellow torso and "beehive" hair piece. Feel for the big hair and the square tile piece.
Taco Tuesday Guy is very colorful. He has a double parka, sombrero hat, and dish with two tacos. I have to give credit to the designers again because the detailing on "TTG" is awesome. Feel for the hat and dish.
Where are my Pants Guy comes with two sets of legs. One with pants and the other without. He has a cool Haiwian shirt. Since he doesn't have any accessories, you have to feel for the two sets of legs.
Wiley Fusebot is very cool. A lot is happening on this robot from the old west. He has a beard, gun, dynamite, and his raccoon tail Davey Crockett hat. The printing on his torso is well done and he has grey robot hands. Feel for the squishy rubbery hat with tail or the pistol gun.
Panda Suit Guy is awesome. He comes with a small panda bear (like we've seen from Sleepy Head and the Elf in past series.) His bear head shows his eyes perfectly. I can imagine we'll be seeing bears in the Chima line soon. Feel for the bear head and small panda bear.
Marsha Queen of the Mermaids is another of my favorites. I love her purple fish tail, blue hair, and detailed torso. She comes with a jewel and a white clam. Feel for the fish tail leg piece.
This series has a great variety of minifigures from the LEGO Movie. I am very happy that the series continues to show the attention to detail in the printing of the minifigs. The accessories continue to be very fun additions. I would highly recommend this series to all fans of LEGO. Right Emmet? "I think I understand, but just to be sure repeat everything you just said because I wasn't listening..."
"Darth Maul is back with a vengence! His cybernetic legs are very detailed and makes him taller than most minifigs. His torso tattoos are not as detailed as the polybag giveaway from a year ago, but they still look bad (in a good way.) He even has arm detailing! I think his head is nicely detailed with his grim determination and thoughtful planning of taking over Mandalore. The spikey ring piece lines up perfectly on his head. The two mandalorians are pretty cool. They have light grey legs and arms and a black torso. The dual sided printed armor is silver and red. Finally, their helmets are grey with red and black detailing. Overall, the minifigures are awesome!
The Mandalorian Speeder itself is nicely designed and very sturdy. It has a two flick fire missiles under the speeder and the cannon mounted on the back. All three minifigs fit into the speedor with no problem. Darth Maul's feet click into a brick with studs to securly keep him seated. What good would a Mandalorian speeder be without a cargo hold? Luckily there is a decent sized cargo hold under the back of the speeder under the cannon. It holds Darth Maul's lightsaber and newly acquired Darksaber. The back seat even has a place for the Mandalorians' guns. I like the color scheme of the vehicle. It had a few stickers, but they weren't difficult to put on.
Overall, this is a great new Star Wars set with three great minifigures, especially Darth Maul. The kit includes a fun speeder with cool features and accessories. I was impressed with the size of the vehicle especially since it originally reminded me of the Naboo Flash Speeder from 2000. I would recommend this set to all LEGO Star Wars fans. Thanks for reading my review. Play Well!!"
"The Series 11 Minifigures are great as usual. I think the green packaging draws your attention pretty well. I was happy to see the continuation of themes from other Minifigure Series along with some new ideas. I will review each minifigure in the order they appear on the poster that is included with each pack.
The Barbarian comes with two swords, has long black hair, some scars from past adventures, and has front and back printing of the torso. I also like the gauntlets on his wrists and furry shorts. Feel for the swords.
The Scarecrow is a very well designed minifigure. His patchwork flannel shirt with straw sticking out of the neck is very wizard (as young Anakin Skywalker would say)!! His legs, face (with button eyes), and hat also have detailed printing. He also comes with a crow (borrowed from Tonto from the Lone Ranger theme) who sits on the hat. He clearly isn't scared of the Scarecrow. Feel for the pitch fork, crow, or hat.
The Bavarian Lady would be welcome at any Oktoberfest celebration. She has a pretzel, cloth apron/skirt, and long blonde pig tailed rubber hair piece. She has a very big smile and a few freckles printed on her cheeks. Feel for the hair piece and pretzel.
The Evil Mech is mostly black with neon green and gray detailing. His head is the green with a cool design with a targeting display. He comes with a black gun with green cone and mostly black armor. Finally, his helmet has a cool design that gives him his "evil appearance." The Battle Mech from Series 9 better be an full alert! Feel for the armor or gun.
The Tiki Warrior is a highly detailed minifigure. From his grassy shorts, to his war painted face and torso, to his awesome rubber Tiki mask. I was surprised to see how the mask fits onto the neck and isn't a helmet. The designers did a great job lining up the eyes properly (as usual!). He also comes with a spear and top knot hair piece with bone. Feel for the spear or mask.
The Gingerbread Man is a very unique and fun minifigure. First he has printed icing on his face, torso, arms, and legs. He comes with a red mug that says "Dunk Me!" The rounded cookie head is the first in the Minifigure theme and is very cool. Feel for the round head and mug.
The Holiday Elf is the only minifigure with the short legs in this series. His hat is pointy with his ears attached to it. He also comes with a teddy bear with a bow-tie and a wrapped present. The present is two pieces, a typical red 2x2 brick and a flat/square cover with a bow printed on it. Feel for the pointy hat and verify it with the short legs or present.
The Yeti is an awesome minifigure! He reminded me of what a Chima Polar Bear could look like before I put on his head. The robin's egg blue detailing is really well done. His oversized head (sandwich board style) is sculpted very nicely. I also like the included popsicle. I sense a brown Sasquatch will be made in the future...Feel for the head piece.
The Mountain Climber has a lot going on. He has a helmet, pick axe, climbling robe, and very detailed printing on his torso and legs. He is primarily red with black arms. Feel for the rope and axe.
The Welder is an interesting minifigure. He is wearing overalls and his face is scruffy with some oil or dirt marks and a sweat drop. His helmet is well designed as is his welding equipment. The welding stick is attached to a hose which connects to a fuel tank. Feel for the thin welding accessories and helmet.
The Scientist comes with two beakers (yellow and light blue). She is wearing a white lab coat and purple undershirt. Her hair is brown and in a ponytail. She also has printed glasses on her face. Feel for the beakers.
The Jazz Musician is very classy. He comes with a new saxaphone element, black hat and suit, long sideburns, and printed sunglasses. He looks like he's been in a club all night playing with the band. I'm sure he'll be joining the Punk Rocker and Rocker Girl on their next tour. Feel for the saxaphone and hat.
The Diner Waitress is an interesting minifigure. She has pink roller skates, a cup filled with ice cream, and a tray. She is very detailed from her denim apron to button shirt with name tag. He's got glasses and is very happy serving ice cream to you in your car. Feel for the small roller skates, oval tray, or cup.
Grandma is very cute! Her accessories include a rubber basket and a cat. I really like her purple sweater with cat faces design. She also has a red necklace, gray hair, and printed glasses. Feel for the cat and squishy basket.
The Constable is the lawman of England. He is mostly black with silver printing of badge, buttons, belt, and colar. His bushy moustache is classic. He also comes with his billy club and helmet. Feel for the helmet and club.
Finally, we have the Lady Robot. She is mostly silver with primarily pink detailing including her hands. She has the wind up key and is a repaint of the Clockwork Robot from Series 6. Still a fun minifigure to add to the collection. Feel for the square head or key.
I hope this review helps you find the Minifigure you are looking for the most when you see them at a store. I would say my favorites from this series are the Scarecrow, Yeti, Tiki Warrior, and Evil Mech. Thanks for reading my review. Play Well!!"
"Oh what fun it is to ride in a rocket backpack open sleigh. This is the third Star Wars Advent Calendar and we have a new selection of minifigures and mini-vehicles. The set includes 9 minifigures but is highlighted by the exclusive Santa Jango wearing a Santa themed suit with red pants, backpack of presents, and festive front and back torso detailing. You also get a Young Boba Fett not seen since 2002!! He has a dual printed face and the Kamino young clone outfit of blue legs and torso. His arms are a darker blue than the torso. He also comes with a black hair piece. The last minifigure I will discuss is the improved Biker Scout Trooper from the new Ewok Village set. He has very detailed printing and has new black with white armored legs!! The mini-vehicles are as cute and fun as ever. Most of them are from Attack of the Clones. The Slave One has blue detailing instead of green. The Republic Gunship, AT-TE, and exclusive rocket backpack sleigh are my favorites.
I think the box is extremely well designed this year. Jango coming down the chimney which is decorated with stockings, lightsaber lights, and garland. Opening presents is always fun and Young Boba looks happy getting a "Kamino Hat Co." box. There is a picture on the inside of each day's flap that shows how to assemble the vehicle or accessory. The Star Wars Advent Calendar is a fun way to count down the days to the holiday season. Especially since it's LEGO and Star Wars!!! Thanks for reading my review. Play Well!!"
"This is a nice starter set from The Lone Ranger theme. It includes The Lone Ranger, Tonto, and Red Knee. It also has a small canoe, a scorpian launcher hill, and a teepee. The canoe is the standard LEGO canoe last seen in the Pirates Theme and Pirates of the Caribbean Theme. It has a paddle, is very sturdy, and is large enough to fit all three minifigs. The teepee is pretty cool. I really like the native style printing on it. Inside it is on the smaller size, but makes up for it with the other accessories. There is a weapons rack and a small campfire with a fish. The scorpian launcher feature is very exciting. Three scorpians are included and can be shot out of the hill. You could also put a minifigure in the hill and have the scorpians surround him. All you need is the bunny from the Friends Theme to reenact the scene in the movie about nature being out of balance!! The minifigures are excellent. The Lone Ranger his his silver guns, white hat, detailed printing on legs and torso, and mask printed on head. Tonto comes with his tomahawk, watch, headdress with crow, and has a dual printed face. Both of them are standard in most of the sets. Red Knee is exclusive here and is extremely well done. I love his buffalo style headdress with printed designs and feathers. He also has a dual printed face and detailed torso and leg printing. Overall this is a nice, small set from a great theme. The features and play value are very good. Buy it with confidence. Thanks for reading my review. Play Well!!!"
"Wow, what a fun TMNT LEGO set!!! It includes the hidden lair with many features AND it also has 6 minifigures (including the Shredder practice doll). I am very impressed with all the features of the Turtle Lair. It has a training center, a TV wreck room, Don's lab, a pizza oven that shoots pizzas, a skateboard ramp, an exploding back wall, 2 skateboards, a minifigure launcher, and a utility hook. Then the above street level section has a manhole cover, fire hydrant, graffiti wall with trick bar, and a street light!! Something for every fan here. The minifigures are great. Master Splinter the rat has printed block legs, katana sword, printed torso and very detailed rubber head. I am very impressed with how Splinter looks in minifig form. The two Turtles are Raphael and Leonardo. Both are very well designed. I especially like how the shells are attached like backpacks. The torsos and shells are detailed differently to tell them apart. They also have their correctly colored masks of red for Raphael and blue for Leonardo. Raph has his sai blades and Leo has his katana swords. The Foot Soldier is standard in most sets and is mostly black with detailed printing on his torso and head. The Dark Ninja is nice. He's a maroon/red color with a detailed torso. He has a black mask that covers his bearded face. He comes with two black swords, and dynamite. Finally, the Shredder Training Dummy is an all brown minifig with short legs. He DOES have a cool helmet and the silver claws and bo staff. He is standing on a rotating platform where the turtles can practice fighting against him. My only complaints are that the Shredder "replica" should have normal sized legs and the large number of stickers that needed to be applied. Overall, this is a fantastic set with great minifigures, lots of features, and value for the price. This is the highlight of the TMNT theme!! Thanks for reading my review. Play well!!!"
"This is the two year anniversary of my original review. World Racers and Prince of Persia were the first two. I thought it was cool that this set includes a huge motorcycle and that Shredder has Prince of Persia hand claws!! I am very happy with this set. It has three minifigures and two fun vehicles. First, we have Shredder's Dragon Bike. It is a very nice looking motorcycle with an enormous back wheel. I like the flag with the Asian symbols, the dragon head front end is pretty sweet, two flick fire missiles, and the back tail is interesting. It also has two exhausts that shoot out flames! Shredder fits in it easily even with his cape. Donatello's motorized skateboard is cool. It has an attachment to hold his weapon and studs to stand on. Overall, both vehicles are exciting to zip around the table. The minifigures include Shredder, Donatello, and a Foot Soldier. The Foot Soldier is standard. He's included in most of the TMNT sets. He has black legs, a detailed torso, printed mask, and silver katana swords. Donatello has his "shell backpack" attachment, his bo staff, and a serious facial expression. I like that his torso has an extra strap across his chest. The detail is very nicely done and the green is perfect. Finally, we have Shredder. He has a blue cape, an awesome helmet and shoulder pads, the claws, and detailed printing on his torso. I was glad to see his disfigured face. Having the leader of the villians in an affordable set is also a major plus. I really enjoy this set and think the minifigures and vehicles compliment each other very well. Thanks for reading my reviews for the past two years. Play well!!!"
"Hee Yaw!! Here's another fun Lone Ranger set which includes 5 minifigs, 3 horses, a safe, and the stagecoach. It is much bigger than I expected and I am especially impressed with the steering capability of the coach. It has plenty of room for play inside and out with its detachable roof and surprise suitcase launcher in the back. You can also detach the horses from the coach and chase after the the bandits. There are two black horses that steer the coach and a brown horse for one of the cowboys. I think the brown horse looks close enough to "Spirit," so I gave him to Tonto. There are 5 minifigures starting with The Lone Ranger and Tonto who are in most of the sets. I really like the white cowboy hat and silver guns for the Lone Ranger. Tonto has two facial expressions: smiling and scared. He also comes with his knife and pocket watch. Jesus and Barret are members of Butch Cavendish's gang and exclusive to this set. Jesus has a red bandana, brown hat and shotgun. Barret comes with a black hat and gray guns. Finally we have Red Harrington who is also exclusive to this set. She comes with a red leg cape, rubberized light red hair, hat, and gun. She also has a white "ivory" leg which is highly detailed as is the rest of her outfit. All the printing on the minfigures are splendid with the various western outfits. Overall this is a fun set, has great value for the price, contains 3 exclusive minifigures, and has 3 horses. It has cool features and is highly recommended. Thanks for reading my review. Play Well!!"
"Wow, what an impressive LEGO set!! It is packed with features, accessories, details, and minifigures. When built, the Silver Mine is gigantic and sets the standard for the Lone Ranger theme. It contains six bags of bricks. I was surprised and happy to see all 5 minifigures in the first bag. This set has many awesome and fun play features. It has a slide!?!, a mine cart shooter, flick missle long horn cow skull, falling boulders, working crane, dynamite launcher, AND exploding walls. It even has a hidden silver "jackpot" behind a waterfall. It has 5 different levels on which you can set up the minifigures. The detail of this set is amazing. I like the hideout room with the oven/heater and the area with the waterfall because there are some cool clear flat pieces that cover the blue water bricks. Then there are plenty of silver nuggets, sliver bars, 3 lanterns, and a ladder. The five minifigures are fantastic. Four of them are exclusive to this set. First we get different versions of Tonto and the Lone Ranger with some "battle damaged" printing. Chief Big Bear has a very cool gray hair piece, bow, and has dual sided torso printing. Then Kyle comes with a shot gun, brown cowboy hat, "dusty" printing on torso and legs. The fifth minifig is Butch Cavendish who is the leader of the gang. He has a dual sided head, detailed front and back torso printing, 2 black pistols, leg printing, and his hat/hair is connected as one piece. All these minifigures are great additions to this theme and set. This is a fantastic large set filled with accessories, features, details, and minifigs. Kids of all ages will love it. Thanks for reading my review. Play Well!!!"
"This is a great starter set for The Lone Ranger theme. It contains 4 minifigures, Silver the horse, a cannon, and other miscellaneous accessories.
Let's start with the minifigures. Clearly it has the Lone Ranger with his printed masked face, white cowboy hat, silver guns, and detailed torso printing. I'm glad the detailed printing contains the ranger badge, red bandana, and black vest. The three Cavalry soldiers have the same hat, torso, and legs. Each one has its own individual accessories and head. Silver is one of the newly designed LEGO horses first seen in the Lord of the Rings theme. He is much more articulated than the old style of horse because the back legs are posable. Now he can stand on his hind legs. The neck is also able to move up or down. Even the bridle is accurately printed. Silver also comes with a saddle and bricks to fill in the body.
The accessories include a very functional firing cannon, a small fire to prepare dinner with a turkey/chicken leg, and a defensive wall. I was impressed that the flag was a printed piece and NOT a sticker!! The accessories add to the play value and realism of the set.
This is a fun, small, and inexpensive set that gives plenty of bang for your buck. I'm always happy when a set of this size and cost includes 4 minifigures (and the horse is an added bonus). The detailed printing, fun accessories (firing canon), number of minifigures, and exciting theme just "builds" the anticipation.
