There seems to be an inconsistency in the design of CMFs
Yesterday I opened a Sea Captain and a "Biker?". Whoever designed the captain gave him a captain's hat and a seagull and then said, "You know what, I think he needs more accessories!" so they gave him some binoculars too! The best they could give the biker was a bandanna and a wrench, the accessory you give to a CMF so you can say you gave him an accessory (for example: crash test dummy). The skydiver has a helmet and a parachute (which I'd call more of a backpack) while Medusa has an intricate headpiece and body design. The Aztec in series 7 also has an intricate headpiece, plus a shield and a spear. The swimmer has(wah wah wah) a medal. I would think that it costs more to make Medusa than the clown or the baseball player in series 10, so why don't all of the CMFs have more of a "balance" (for want of a better word) in design and accessories? Are the CMFs actually broken down in rares, commons and uncommons, the rarer the figure the more intricate it's design? Or do the designers just come up with whatever they can imagine and Lego gives it the green light as long as it can be produced under a certain cost?
