Indiana Jones-- Impressively captures the likeness of the character in Lego form.
Stormtrooper- Great detailing and he looks pretty cute with his oversized helmet.
Classic Space Blue Astronaut- Simple and somehow blue looks best.
CMF 6 Clockwork Robot- I dig the retro styling and the wind-up key.
CMF 6 Sleepy Head- Very original and he's a lot of fun to drop into any MOC to lend a dream land element.
And probably my favorite minifig....
CMF 8 Diver-- Not a popular choice but I just love the detail that this little guy has. One of the few CMF series minifigs to have both front and back torso printing. The helmet is just great. Yes, he needs an oxygen hose, but the magnified window and expression of awe more than make up for it.
Other favourites of mine, Davy Jones for the fantastic detailing, Iron Man because he's one of my favourite comic book characters, the Maraca man from the CMF line, Stormtrooper because he just has so much character and the latest Boba Fett, his detailing is brilliant.
The Comic-Con Batman
Iron Man (Heartbreaker Armour)
Boba Fett (2012 edition)
As for unlicensed sets, that is a bit easier to choose:
Series 6 Roman Soldier
Also the Original Joker figure where he is bearing teeth in his smile.
I guess another would be the White pony tailed hair woman only found in some old LEGOLAND sets.. apparently for another 30 years no one in LEGOLAND aged until the gray/silver hairpiece for was introduced in the 2000's.
Ice planet Chief http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?M=sp019
Royal Knight; kight 2 http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?M=cas063
Now is a bit harder to choose with how creative TLG is with minifigs now. Each minifig that is released now (especially in the collectable series) have something to offer.
Not entirely sure why, he just is.
When I was much younger, my favorite was the black plumed forestman. The black and green combination made him look more rebellious than all the other Forestmen.
Wolf pack gets the vote. I also liked the grey peasant. I really dont like the lego figures with pink heads etc. Im fussy but it should all pretty much be yellow in my book.
Lego Islanders and Johnny Thunder were also really cool.
With regards to more conventional ones, the Clown and Wrestler from series 1 really blew me away when I first saw them. They were so unexpected. Sensei Wu, Mac McCloud (PQ) and the lady in blue from MVR - (cas490 Kingdoms - Peasant, Maiden) are also favourites.
My favourite licensed minifigs would be Darth Vader, Woody, Buzz, Theoden, Deadpool and Loki. All excellent representations of the source characters.
But if I had to pick one it would be the CMF Hippie.
The minifig I don't own but would most like to is the Angel key chain (852743) - anyone got a spare or two?
Most of my favorites have already been named here, but from recent years, some of my absolute favorites are the Ninjago NRG minifigs, thanks to their unique color schemes and metallic paint highlights. NRG Cole is my favorite of the four. Also of note is the gold Lloyd figure from this year.
Following behind would be King Theoden and Batman among many others.
Too bad they didn't do one...
Disco Dude (Series 2)
Mermaid (Series 9)
Yoda (Origial variant)
Cheerleader (Series 1)
Alien (Series 3)
Vampire Bat (Series 8)
Dinosuit Guy (Series 5)
Chickensuit Guy (Series 9)
Out of all those if I had to pick a single favourite, my knee jerk reaction is it would be disco dude, but the more I ponder on it the more I make arguments for the rest of them, there is no hope for me!
Do you think Bricklink would be my best bet to get a handful of SW characters? By best bet, I mean, reasonably priced, and hassle free? Or should I just find the best deal on eBizzle? I'll be looking for:
- Chrome Stormtrooper
- Darth Vader (is there a "best" one? I'd love a chrome, but for the price…?)
- Jawa (maybe a few, they're pretty cute)
- Imperial Guard
- Boba Fett
- I also don't mind the Leia Boushh, but I don't think it suits my car :)
(Sorry to hijack the thread somewhat — I can't go past my classic red space man as a favourite :)
Love the LEGO figure in the car, he deserves a place of honor such as that!
1. Darth Vader
2. Shirtless darth maul
3. New Gamorrean guard
4. New boba fett
Off topic guys, i am trying to get chrome vader but the prices are insane (90dollars). do you think that is worth it? already a year of dillema and the price gone up 40 dollars -_-
Black Chrome Darth Vader (got as a gift whoo hoo)
Slave Princess Leia
Cloud City Boba Fett
Death Star Trooper
White Boba Fett
Prices for things like that are such a personal opinion - there are always two answers - yes and no.
For me, the answer is no.
That i don't, old and new jango fett.
