Favourite minifigs within the LEGO themes
Ok, so they'll have been a million threads like this, but as Im not a fan of the licensed ranges. i thought I'd try put a slightly different spin on things...
What is your favourite Minifigs within the Lego themes? So not including licensed themes or the minifigures series!
My favourite lines are all small and/or short lived but to kick things off:
I wish we got more of a back story/names of my favs: The Wolfpack. But I'll go with:
Wolfpack Bandit (of any variation, they were all really cool)
Rob N. HoodDingo Melbourne (from the Outback line. Now he is not a pleasant looking fig but he captures the outback theme pretty well)
Dojo My favourite from the Castle: Ninja line. 'Red Ninja Master' and 'Chief Kendo' also pretty cool
Sherpa Sangye Dorje from Orient expedition
King Kahuka islanders chief. Achu from Amazon adventurers also a great fig
Sorry got carried away!
Over to you!

Swamp monster and butler from MF
All the fish from Atlantis
Classic Pirate Captain (the red bearded one)
When I was a kid, one nameless Town figure somehow captivated me. He has no name, but he comes in the Victory Cup Racers set that took FOREVER for me to obtain in spite of the desirable minifigure. He has a red ballcap, green vest, white arms, and blue pants, with cool blue sunglasses on his face. Maybe that color mixture really grabbed my 5 year-old attention. All I know is that I'm most glad I now have him in my collection.
another favorite is/are the Jesters (both the blue/red and the red/white ones) but then again I'm partial to jesters universally.
Some of my favourites come from the CMF range: Hazmat Guy (S4), Royal Guard (S5), Scarecrow (S11), Toy Soldier (promo), among others.
Other shouts from me:
- Castle Male Peasant (appears in MMV)
- Monster Fighters Zombie Bride and Groom
- Winter Village Carolers
I would have the CMF Monster S4 in there instead of the Butler, along with the countless army builders.
All generations of EMTs/Paramedics.
City forest police.
However after reading the 'back story' and realising it was more a fantasy line than anything else I had a little more time for it.
Still not bothered to get a single set though.
However Danny is the best due to the wolf emblem!
I'd really love some sort of a overdraft sets where some original lines are incorporated into new sets.
More recently, I was very impressed with the recent~ish (2009/2010) pirate theme figures. The Imperial soldier II and shipwrecked sailor from Loot Island (#6241) stand out. The former blow the original red and blue soldiers out of the water!
The astronauts from the Space Port theme were also a real eye opener after returning from my dark ages. A proper astronaut with proper astronauts helmet and reflective visor. Mind blowing for someone whose last minifigure would have been from about 1989.
