*** Legopants' DFB Footballer Set "Lottery-To-Buy-at-RRP" Extravaganza Shizzle ***

LegopantsLegopants GermanyMember Posts: 1,964

Roll up, roll up, etc.

In a similar vein to @LostInTranslation's Billund Airport "lottery-to-buy" last August, I've decided to do something similar :-)

Here's your chance to obtain a complete set of DFB Footballers (71014) for just 50 EUR! Yes, just 50 EUR!!!

All 16 bags have a 3cm cut along the top of the bag (just above the bar code) to allow identification of the minifigs. Each bag has been labelled and put in its own zip-loc bag.

- The lottery is open worldwide and there is no limit to the number of people who can enter.
- To enter, simply post an answer to this emotive question: "What is your least favourite CMF?".
- The cut-off point for entries will be 22:00 Germany time (UTC +2:00) on Sunday, 29th May 2016 (timestamp of post).
- Each entry will be assigned a number.
- The list of entries will be listed here on Monday.
- The winning number will be selected at random using a Random Number Generator app on my mobile phone and announced here at 22:00 Germany time (UTC +2:00) on Tuesday, 31st May 2016.

Terms and conditions:
- One entry per person.
- It would be nice if the winner hasn't already got a set of Footballers, so if you've already got one, please don't enter - give others a chance. 
- By entering, you are saying that you are happy to buy the set for 50 EUR and pay for shipping to your country of residence (recorded and tracked shipping without insurance to e.g. UK/US costs 6.20 EUR).
- Payment in EUR via PayPal gift option.

Please PM me if anything is unclear.

Good luck! :-)

    S1 Clown is my least favourite.  I have mild Coulrophobia.  Don't even mention the movie IT.  <Shudders> Thanks for the very kind lottery.

    I'm in!!! Least favourite CMF is probably something like the Evil Robot or Zombie Pirate.

    Seriously, I can't in all good conscience enter as I already have some but good luck to everyone! And nice one @Legopants

    Least favourite CMF is definitely Laser Mech from series 15 as he looked like a clone brand ;-)
    Thanks for the chance @Legopants

    Thanks for doing the Lottery! 

    Least favorite would be S10 (?) Skydiver, so common, but just not useful.

    My least favorite is the Space Alien from series 3 as it was too close to the designs of the Alien Conquest theme out at the same time.

    Don't count me for the drawing as I have had opportunity to buy some already but I just wanted to complain about least favorite CMF. I found the Space Alien from series 3 to be a drag as he was basically a retread from leftover Space Police 3 molds.

    I'd like to hold this place for another worthy Bricksetter, assuming he doesn't get in within the timeframe.  And as @Bumblepants noted above, I always like the opprotunity to complain about my least favorite CMF.

    Vote me in for the S1 Clown.  Hate short legs, hate afro, hate everything about the minifig.  

    I should also note that I also can't stand that the DFB CMF set has multiple figures that I would really have to use a portable x-ray machine to tell apart.  (I can'ts stands the dot-codes!)

    Good to see bendybadger with the first comment given his regular lottery give-a-way threads.

    My least favourite is the S1 crash dummy.

    @SumoLego - series 1 clown has regular legs, series 5 clown has short legs. I'm sure that probably doesn't affect your hatred too significantly but just thought I'd mention it :-)

    Thanks for doing this lottery, what a great idea!

    My least favorite minifigure would have to be the useless Flamenco Dancer from CMF Series 6.

    I don't discriminate.  I hate them both.

    Fantastic @Legopants!!

    S9 Cyclops

    not a big fan but mostly because he's the only mystery minifig that i've ever chosen incorrectly.

    i hope we see more collectors helping out with the DFB series at a reasonable price. Stoked!!

    Awesome opportunity to give us @Legopants.  Thank you.

    S10 Mr. Gold because I'll never have an opportunity to have S10 complete set.

    Thank you for the great idea @Legopants!

    The only CMF I have feelings towards is Mr.Gold. I despise the principle behind his existence.

    It has to be the skydiver - just because I always seemed to get him when I grabbed without groping.  Damn Skydiver.  I still have several sitting around.

    For me it's Mr Gold for the principal of his very existence.
    plus the fact I didn't find him :o)

    Thanks @legopants for a great competition.

    Series 8 Pirate Captain. Through the years we got a lot of pirate captains. No need to include one in CMF.

  • canon03canon03 USAMember Posts: 319
    Yep, my vote is also for Mr. Gold.  It's the one glaring hole in my collection.

    As a side note, didn't realize the S1 clown was disliked.  Maybe it's time for a profile pic change. :)  Nah, it's one of my favorites in all the CMF due to it's carnival theme.

    My least favorite has been Homer from the Series 2 Simpsons.

    There were so many Homers in that theme and so many other characters yet to do... why another Homer?  His head was the same as other versions, and I seemed to pick him every time I was trying for Dr. Hibbert (same accessory) and so have far too many of him!

    Best of luck to all!

    The mechanic from series 6!  Back before I knew about eBay and BL and forums like these, I acquired far too many of these suckers the old school way of blindly picking in the store. I never wanna see that grin ever again! (Thanks for the lottery opportunity!!!)

    Series 1 Deep Sea Diver, since I still haven't figured out a good way to make him stand on his baseplate with his flippers on.

    While not my least favorite, I hate that the banana in S16 has printing on it. We get that it's a banana, did you need to have "BANANA!" written on it?
    Legopants
  • TyresOFlahertyTyresOFlaherty USAMember Posts: 339
    Can I change my answer? I hate that the Simpsons characters that came with the house all look like they're high/asleep so that you'd HAVE to buy the CMF versions where they look normal. So dumb.

    Mine is actually one in the DFB set - Mesut Özil. Looks NOTHING like him. It's obviously very hard to make accurate minifigs of real people sometimes, but he isn't even close.

    Edit: I already posted once - please don't count me again ( @SumoLego isn't my least favourite minifigure)
