LEGO Minifigures Series 8 – Conquistador

September 14th, 2012 1 comment

There is always one minifig in each series that when I look at it I automatically think my kids shouldn’t be playing with that. It should be on a shelf or diorama somewhere. This one is up there with the Roman soldier from a few series ago. Everything from the colours to the decals are […]

LEGO Minifigures Series 8 – Red Cheerleader

September 9th, 2012 1 comment

As I’ve said before I much prefer this way of putting skirts onto minifigs. I’ve wanted to pick up a few of these for a diorama ever since I first seen them. Simple and bright this minifig stands out from the rest of the minifigs on my shelf. As with the cowgirl the accessories really […]

LEGO Minifigures Series 8 – Actor

I love minifig and the facial expressions just add to that love. Looking at the decals whilst the pieces are separated I always think the body just looks to busy with no real stand out design. Put them all together though and it’s perfect. The raised eyebrow is perfect for this minifig! Feel Guide This has […]

LEGO Minifigures Series 8 – Downhill Skier

September 8th, 2012 No comments

There is something about the winter themed minifigs that I just don’t get. Not to say they don’t look good I’ve just never seen the appeal myself. A very simple design that works well. I can’t actually come up with anything other than I wish they’s stop using this colour of pink for the female […]

LEGO Minifigures Series 8 – Pirate Captain

September 8th, 2012 No comments

I don’t know what it is about Lego pirates but I have to have them and this one doesn’t disappoint. When the series first leaked this was the only figure the boys wanted. I think the only thing missing is a parrot! Generally I like my faces to be pretty bare with only the expressions […]

LEGO Minifigures Series 8 – Diver

September 8th, 2012 No comments

From the moment I first caught sight of this minifig I had to have it.. The decals are perfect and the use of 1×1 plates for the lead covered boots is just sheer genius. I’m also loving the inclusion of the magnifying glass in the helmet as it makes the face really stand out. If […]

LEGO Minifigures Series 8 – DJ

Another one that the boys have wanted from day one. I have to say that I kind of liked it when I seen the first promo shots but now that I’ve actually seen it in the ‘flesh’ I’m not so sure.   I idea is great I just don’t think it’s been executed that well. […]

LEGO Minifigures Series 8 – Cowgirl

Despite the boys initial dislike for the figure and the girls instant love of it I’m actually really liking it. I honestly can’t think of any sets that we have that we could use it with though. I guess mine will be staying on the shelf and my daughters will be used when ever she […]

LEGO Minifigs Series 8 – Cheat Sheet

August 27th, 2012 5 comments

It’s time for Series 8 of the Lego Collectable Minifigs! As ever I’ve yet to find a decent source for a cheat sheet so I’ve had to make up my own. The lot numbers really complicated things last time around so I’m going to take a different approach this time. As I find them I’ll […]

Lego Collectable Minifigs Series 8 starting to hit the shops

August 21st, 2012 2 comments

*Edit* The ‘Feel Guide’ for Series 8 can be found here. It would seem that the Series 8 minifigs have started to hit the shops a little early in the US.   I’ve been making daily trips to my local toy shops ever since I read about this on the off chance that I’d managed […]
